    @nudge
    i agree with sandy about KJH n Choi danield, if you say choi leave not one screen to waste, Isee KJH too, if that scene doesn’t interest you , it was the writer n the pd who give that scene, i think both of them do good job
    I like all the lead cast of this drama

    I have finished watching episode 7 and episode 8 and it’s sad to see what’s happening at episode 8 , but, something strikes my attention on Jin Ah was that Jin Ah was sincere and kind and falling in love with Ji Hyuk.

    In order to continue to attract my interest to like this drama, the writer must change the romance of Ji Hyuk. Ji Hyuk should find his love with Jin Ah.

    Mi Ra a very selfish woman, she does not deserve love from Ji Hyuk and hopefully, Dong Suk will die because of sudden heart attack.

    The problem is, how to understand that Ji Hyuk can eventually becomes the big man ? And I am more interested in the romance between Jin Ah and Ji Hyuk. And I am praying hard that, the writer will not pair up the romance of Ji Hyuk with Mi Ra . Frankly speaking, I hate Mi Ra and I like Jin Ah. Jin Ah may not be prettier than Mi Ra, but, I really like Jin Ah loving Jin Hyuk with a sincere, innocent true heart.

    I like to watch Big Man and also Doctor Stranger, both are equally good. And I will continue to watch this drama and looking forward to watch episode 9 and episode 10.

    peyutnduy Says:

    I haven’t seen Doctor Stranger and Triangle which are aired at the same time as Big Man. So I have no idea why they’re ratings are higher than Big Man. Perhaps ONLY because of the actors are much younger than KJH and CD?

    Nadege Says:

    Love psycho Jin Ah & hope she gets her man even thought it is not likely since she is the second female lead. They call pull off an “I hear your voice” where the main lead ends up with the second lead!!!

    Nudge Says:

    I thought he was just putting on the idiot bit just a little. And I credited the character with street-smarts which meant he’d know when he’s being played. But that wasn’t the case at all. In this, the latest episode, it turns out he really is a moron.

    And that duplicitous sly face that Ji Hwan puts on wasn’t that the character had something brewing at the back of his mind but was just lousy acting. Oh dear me, I’ve come this far and the story is interesting.

  12. 112
    Nudge Says:

    @hind, me too. It’d be interesting to see our hero (moron) get some back for what they’d done to him. I especially like to see our cardiac outpatient get his comeuppence.

    Cyn Says:

    Haven’t watched this show yet, but I’ve been watching Doctor Stranger which is good. But I gave up on Triangle because the first few episodes bored me. Maybe I’ll give this one a shot.

    mml Says:

    I have finished watching episode 9 and episode 10 and towards the ending episode 10, it’s so sweet to see Jin Ah happily hoping and wishing to have a wedding ring from Ji Hyuk. I will continue to watch episode 11 and episode 12 and hopefully oneday, Ji Hyuk will love and propose to Jin Ah.

    I just finished eps 11 and 12 and I’m a little confused. Why is MR going after DS and not his father? What has he did to her that she now hates him? I don’t get it.

  20. 120
    Drama Fan Says:

    Can anyone possibility like the main female leader???? She is terribly annoying…not a good person…how can he end up with someone who nearly killed him for his heart? If the producer wants higher ratings, focus more on the romance with Jin Ah. She totally deserve the love in the end!

  21. 121
    mml Says:

    I have just finished watching episode 11 and episode 12 and looking forward to watch episode 13 and episode 14, to find out on how can Ji Hyuk win his revenge ? And I hope that the writer better don’t arrange Ji Hyuk to pair with Mi Ra as a romance couple. I am getting very sick to see Mi Ra , I really hate Mi Ra very much in her character. I like to see Jin Ah with a pure sincere heart towards Ji Hyuk. I really hope that Ji Hyuk, should really consider and accept the love of Jin Ah.

    Sweetpea Says:

    Drama Fan and mml, I so agree with the two of you. JH likes her, but he doesn’t even know she tried to kill him. I was reading some comments on Soompi regarding MR and it’s amazing how people try to justify MRs actions as being brained washed by DS. I do believe DS was unconscious when she made the decision on her own that she wanted to kill JH for his heart. JA has been faithful to him from the beginning. She even turned her back on her family.

    Lclarakl@119, good question. I had not thought about it. I really have no idea why MR is going after DS other than she likes JH. It was DS father who slandered her father and her mother took money to keep quiet about it. Why isn’t see going after them?

    MR hates DS and all his family, she wants to revenges to Hyun Su Company, because after his father die because car accident, the family using that incident to use MR’s father name that her father steal the money from company.

    Because her father dead, they used her father name to clear their BAD action because they loose money in investment and government try to look out the money was.

    Thats why MR hates DS so much because he make her father a criminal.

    Waving not Drowning Says:

    This drama appears to be propaganda promoting socialism/communism. I don’t know if it was intentional. Just my impression.

    Sadly I think the evil Dong Suk is to varying degrees closer to how we are as humans. He coveted and was filled with false pride. And he was willing to step on others to acquire what he desired.

    On the other hand our protagonist Ji Hyuk, probably reflects the writer’s own understanding of a good person — pretentious and vacuous.

  28. 128
    lclarakl Says:

    Mary170 @ 126, I understand that MR is taking revenge on DS because his father framed her deceased father for embezzlement–they weren’t responsible for his death. It does not make sense that she’s taking revenge on DS for something his father did. She supposedly has been dating DS since high school (over 10 years), and yet she falls out of love with him in 2 months for someone she barely knows. Even worse, she never tried to help him see that his behavior was wrong.

    I think the writers did not do a good job defining MR. More than that, I think Lee Da Hee was not lead actress material for this drama. She didn’t know how to truly portray her character or the conflict she was feeling. In my opinion, she kept trying to look pretty not realizing in order to really portray her character she has to make some ugly facial expressions at time.

    Jung So Min, I have to give two thumbs up!!! She out acted Lee Da Hee hands down. There was so much chemistry between JH and Jin Ah. The casting director selected the wrong person. MR was supposed to be cool but very passionate and later she was supposed to become fiery. LOL!! I only saw cool. The other 2 characteristics never made an appearance.

    So Mira character ruined the drama for me, it is so inconsistent. one of the worst written character ever.

    The first 8 episodes are beyond amazing for me but the latter parts, I skipped everything to finish it.

    cleverfool Says:

    watched 10eps and then aft JH came out of “prison” and he try to take revenge the whole story seems to become draggy… ffwd some of the part… overall a nice drama!

  35. 135
    Sandy Says:

    1Reviewer @132, I agreed with this comment concerning So Mira, then I saw the drama Temptation. The husband is the worse written character. As a matter of fact, I’m not sure the writer of that drama didn’t take characters and plots from different dramas and meshed them into Temptation which is the worse drama ever. No words can describe it other than it made me not ever want to watch the two leads ever again in another drama together or separately. The writer I will never watch another drama written by him.

    Back to Big Man, they could have hit it out of the park if they had switched the main female lead with the second and changed up the plot. The revenge plot line for MR was too weak and ridiculous. I could understand if she was going after the father. She faulted her fiancé for what his father did and she wasn’t’ much better than him. Instead of siding with her, I found her role more traitor. Yes she was helping the male lead, but the way her character was written, it her unlikable for me.

    Doris Aguirre Says:

    Lack of chemistry among the casts. Good series but wrong casts.

  37. 137
    Sweetpeaga Says:

    The cast was okay, but the wrong female lead. They should have switched the second female and made her lead and the lead female should have been second lead.
