    Ep 16, Finale:

    Strange ending.
    All that build-up with the fluctuating readings on the heart monitor in the hospital room doesn’t get used.
    All the talk of them swapping back, and the concomitant “necessary” loss of memory dont surface in this final ep.
    It just ended in what feels to me like a big cope out. KKJ goes to Germany in YJ’s body. 1 year later he is back, with his memory intact. So the two of them are together. That’s fine. That’t the main thing we care about.
    As for the plot, well, it just flies away, with the birds………

    oh my God. I don’t give a damn if Da Ran will be ended up with KKJ as long as its Goong Yoo. I think it will be weird if Da Ran and Yon Jae back together again.
    Well, two thumbs for Goong Yoo because his acting is sooo amazing!
    Can’t wait for his next drama ^^

    sw Says:

    looks like YJ life is end up miserable. DR didn’t ask his apology? it should be 17 or 18 episode. to much story unrevealed. it doesn’t give a chance to YJ to explain that he is looking for KKJ and answer DR question before. is KKJ finally accept YJ as his brother and not hating him again (didn’t think YJ is selfish again)

    sara Says:

    Ep15
    I loved it. Displaying of pure love. New look of love. I love how KJ wants to protect DR. He knows he is going to disappear. He can enjoy the moment and make lots of new memories but he chooses to sacrifies his love to protect DR. I love this concept. Although i don’t like that he doesn’t give her any option and decides by himself. I feel sympathy for DR. She doesn’t know what to do. After overcoming the love dilemma, KJ says he doen’t remember anything. What she can do? She ‘s just confused and if you look from her point of view, it’s compeletly understandable. I’m sure KJ will remember everything even after returnig to his body, coz love and memories are in ones heart not head. Really, such a beautiful concept. Hong sisters really can do it.

    Again, GY, You are super super super great.The first scene-KJ’s dream was the presentation of GY’s ability as an actor. Even his eyes, his facial expression, his walking is different when he is KJ.

    EP 15 is just amaizing and really sad! i love it i wonder what will be the end!!
    as for GY an DR acting is amaizing espacailly GY he is born to be an actor it will be infaire if he doesn’t get any awerds for it!
    this is totally the drama of the season!!! i wonder why rating are soo low it’s extraordinary!!????

    Abibuyog Says:

    and the BIG fever is over…

    maybe, the last episode wasnt good enough to fill all those unrevealed questions but it it just an iceberg of the whole mountain.

    yeah, the story has its own flaws but this also made the story beautiful. Defining love in different way.. and conquering it in their own way… Still the best drama for me.

    Wooh. Surely Gong Yoo will be missed. I pray that we will not wait another 5 years to see him acting, because I believe he was made for this. His acting is really superb, even without uttering words, message was sent to all the viewers. right? I know, all the big fans knew what I meant..

    ALso, credit for Leeminjung and the whole staff of BIG. You are all great people.

    Gong Yoo: Oppa, you are well appreciated. Pls. do another series, movies, and we will wait for you..

    10:10 will always be remembered, PANDA couple will always be here, the ride to the moon, will always be possible, the KANG wind will always blow, the Teacher Da ran bread will always be seen, PORORO song will always be sing, and all the good memories and lesson learnt will always be in our hearts.. Kamsamhamnida..
    by the way, this is the first korean drama that I watched with the same time airing.. and waiting is so frustrating.. never will do it again, but for BIG, all the painful waiting is all worth it..

    Ajah GOng yoo. mahal kita!! ^___^. always wear that beautiful smile and beautiful YOO.. :))

    Ep. 16:

    “Open-ended”, somewhat like Rooftop Prince ending. Mari said in her email to DR that “both of them are back”. At the last scene, the person who alighted and called after DR was never shown, the camera only showed him under the umbrella and his hand holding the umbrella, though it is definitely KKJ as he was wearing the watch from DR. And there were only flashbacks of YJ (KKJ) and DR. So the person who came back one year later to meet DR could actually be KKJ in his own body or KKJ still in YJ body (if Mari had lied again). The writer leave it to viewers to make up their own conclusion.

    For me, I would choose the latter, I would prefer to be KKJ in YJ’s body.

    240712 Says:

    the biggest clue is that the boy told the mom that it’s a HYUNG…not an AHJUSSI….so here i took it literally that the young KKJ is the one who’s back so i cried for KKJ in SYJ coz that’s the couple i love..I AM HAVING THE BIGGEST DRAMA HANGOVER EVER.gosh!this is nuts

    caca Says:

    @Park Jun Hee
    I disagree with ur comment. How can you decide that Big is the winner among the good dramas like Ghost and Gaksital. Gentleman’s dignity is even waaay better than Big. For me, Big is just a mess like Fashion King. The writer disappoints me a lot. There are so many holes in the story that make me confused. I’m surprised that nobody in this thread complain about it.
    In season 2, the winner is obviously Queen Inhyun’s Man. I reckon it’s the best drama in 2012 so far. So, I think your judgement is based on your preference.

  31. 781
    KDaddict Says:

    We all agree that Gong Yoo is Beyond Fantastic n LMJ does a gt job here. The story is something else. And the Ending is truly disappointing. I don’t think it is open ended. I think the last 15 mins, the finale are plain confused, confusing, lame, and a failure.
    Here is why:
    1. Mari says in her email to DR that the brothers have swapped back, n they r fine. Really? They have swapped back, and we don’t get to see the swap??? You can’t deal with a scene that is sooo central to the story by having Mari emailing DR, n us!
    2. Where is Shin, if they’ve swapped back? We should get to see KKJ as played by Shin, post-swap. Where on earth is that KKJ in his own body?
    3. 1 year later, KKJ shows up on the bus n follows DR off the bus, still in YJ’s body! WTF? Are you playing w our minds? Mari just says that they swapped back!
    4. The point of this story is that DR loves KKJ for himself, all 20 years of age of him, (whether you like the idea or agree w it is another thing). So when he returns, aren’t they supposed to show us DR n KKJ in his own body making gooey eyes at each other? That’s called closure, coming full circle, making good on the promise of the plot, making sense. Having KKJ remain in Gong Yoo’s body is a plain cope out, becos it’ll be jarring for the audience to see DR with the real KKJ. Cowardice in writing. If you don’t have the guts to end up there, don’t lead the audience in that direction for 16 episodes.
    5. What is the pt of that 1 year??? You are a better viewer if you get it, for I sure don’t.

    Next time when I hear that the Hong sisters have a new show, I’ll be that much less excited.

    Love Gong Yoo! <3 <3 <3

    KDaddict Says:

    @caca-780,
    You said no one has complained abt it. Well, I was just writing the complaint at the same moment that you were saying that! You know, sometimes complaining explicitly abt a drama can be hazardous, as ppl who love it can get upset.

    @park,
    BIG, AGD, I do I do are light, romantic comedies. They provide fun summer viewing that is not taxing on our attention or synapses. Currently there are 3 really good dramas that belong in other genres: Chaser, Gaksital, Ghost are dark, intense and serious. I’m about to catch up on them, n have confidence that they’ll be worthy shows.

  33. 783
    enkchoow Says:

    yeah, I think that the ending was disappointing, but as we can see big can have a good rating in the end (actually it grows from 10th to 5th)
    I agree with anyone who says it needs more chapters to explain what happened to YJ and KKJ. But still, this is an amazing drama from Goong Yoo. Also Lee Min Jung plays Da Ran very well.

  34. 784
    caca Says:

    One more thing, I really feel sorry for Shin Won Ho. He must be excited when he become the main cast of this drama. Unfortunately, what he need to do is just laying down on the bed. I have nothing against him but I just wanna laugh everytime I remember it. I blame Hong sister’s for wasting his talent. It would be interesting if Kyung Joon return to his body.It will surely challenge Daran’s love to Kyung Joon. And if Da ran still accepts him then we will be sure that her love is real. For me, Da Ran just loves Kyung Joon because he is in Yoon Jae’s body.

    @park jun hee Hi ‘wave, wave’ , happy to see you here too. What else are you watching now? I am following A Gentleman’s Dignity and Bridal Mask online and watching Ghost, Chaser and Bride of the Sun on cable TV. Looking forward to watching Five Fingers with Joo Ji Hoon (guy from Princess Hours/Goong, which is after AGD. Am not very active these days on the comments but I still check them out, so hope to see you in some of these threads 😀

    Kevin Richard Says:

    I think Big started with a great story.But ended so bad. The producer should extend the episode. 16 episodes is not enough for the plot. So many stories had to be rushed. That’s so Caca said that there’s so many holes in the story. And yes!! Shin Won Ho didn’t get his best role for this drama. And the ending should tell everything that happens in that 1 year and shows real KKJ’s life dan SYJ’s life of course. I’m really disappointed about the ending.

  38. 788
    Charlie Says:

    The ending is so bad. Do you even call it an ending?
    The only benefit of swapping back, to me, is to see Shin come back to life and show us his pretty face. But guess what, you don’t get to see it. All you get is wondering, in a bad way.
    Gong yoo is a great actor, I get it. But I have seen him as KKJ for too long, I want to see real KKJ, even if it is just for a little while in the last ep, but you can have it, that’s all the ending is saying.
    A very disappointing show, wasted all the talents in the show, big time.

    Vahdaneh Says:

    well you know right now i’m watching Big in KBS WORLD which yesterday broadcast was Ep10 i couldn’t get along with not knowing what happened and i get online checking out the Recaps and …
    SO while not watching the Last Ep but from what i’m hearing around here and by s.th which i read in recaps … Gong Yo Yet follows Gil Teacher around in the last scenes as it’s just Yet KKJ restored in his own body but because we are used to seeing him as Dr.Seo they are showing him in this way to us … OK; the only reasons for which for them they want to kill our nerves must be that they just need to end the screen by Gong Yo Passing by after Gil Teacher … we sure DID enjoyed his play in KKJ role But Come on we have to see Gil Teacher with KKJ Body at last for once … it is a bit annoying for a story and play which was just more and more satisfying than what it had to be …
    But Yet if really the writer Ends Gil Teacher and KKJ “THE REAL ONE ; Soul and Shell Together KKJ ONE!” together then yet it feels good enough but if it would turn out to be s.th to be witnessed then it would be a GRAND ENDING …
    feels like the scenes that you really waited for them to be on screen for Harry Potter Movies But Director just didn’t even put them in script … THE scenes You would die to see but never to be able to…
    any way ; just for an ending which i expected more i should not forget ,
    HOW AWESOME THE WHOLE DRAMA IT WAS …
    I LIKED THE STORY 501% Yeah … This High as a TS … it was fabulous at least till Ep10 which i watched every Ep which got ended i would Continue it with a WOW and a Great Look on my face so Perfect so Awesome … I’ll Keep watching the rest … Thankyu for this great piece

    BIG IS AWESOME THANKYU

    will lin Says:

    Yes!! As u all said the ending is a lot confusing and disappointing. I think they just have to extend at least two more episodes. Why don’t they do it? But I still appreciate the actors and actresses. They showed great performance. Gong yoo show the perfect performance here. He and lee min jung showed great chemistry between them. What a lovely couple!!! I noticed that gong yoo always show great chemistry with all the actresses he acted with such as yoon eun hye Im soo jung sung yuri Kim sun ah etc. But i love him with yoon eun hye and Im soo jung most. Gong yoo please come back immediately with a movie or drama. Although the ending is ridiculous I stil love big. Love gong yoo fighting!!!

  43. 793
    Micc Says:

    I think the writers had started a great fantasy but couldn’t really wrap it up. They couldn’t bring KKJ back in Shin’s body cos that wouldn’t satisfy the viewers, they couldn’t bring KKJ back in Gong’s body cos there’s no excuse for that. but DR had to be with KKJ because that’s the story all along, hence the ambiguous ending, showing a no face KKJ, obviously more resemblance to Gong than Shin from the view of his back, just to satisfy the viewers and keep the fantasy in tact. The writers should have planned better, I supposed.

  44. 794
    CVL Says:

    Well, I made the right decision for abandoned this drama after ep 6 or 7. I was excited for GY/LMJ pairing but such a disappointment. The story started out as cute and funny but went down hill after ep 5-6 (in my opinion) to the point that is ridiculous and non sense. Now after reading today comments I am glad that I didn’t waste my 10 precious hours to finish it. How could a writer do this? Isn’t she a professional writer? Yes it’s for entertainment purposes but she needs to b responsible for her writing.

    I have to agree with Cara: I didnt believe DR loves KKJ from the beginning and up til now; what she sees in KKJ is YJ since KKJ is still in YJ’s body. Also why did Shin sign up for this role for just lying there the whole time. Didnt he read the script before signing up for it? I often wonder why ppl do what they do.

    Oh well I have been taking a break from KDs for a month now and it’s time to watch the Olympics. Hope there’ll b a better drama coming soon.

    Cheers!!!!

    Micc Says:

    @KDaddict

    I think the one year lapse helped us to understand why (in the last scene) the no-face man’s (KKJ) back looked more like Gong than Shin, cos he had grown (a year older). KKJ and YJ were twins to start. That’s just my interpretation.

  46. 796
    Micc Says:

    I actually went back to rewatch the bus and umbrella scene in the first episode. I gotta say Shin and LMJ had good chemistry and they did look good together! What a waste! I was so looking forward to seeing the Shin KKJ and DR together at the end.

  47. 797
    tc Says:

    So disappointed with the last two episodes. So many gaping holes and unanswered questions and no neat closure to the ending. Surprised that the Hong Sisters did not utilize the last two episodes effectively to show the after swap effect and it’s impact on DR, KKJ and YJ but instead just dragged out the episodes by fillers until the last 15 mins.

    The reunion scene between DR and KKJ in YJ’s body left me bewildered and confused as we know from Ma Ri ‘s letter that the switch back had happened. If the writer did not want KKJ to return to his own body, then they should have rewritten the plot that the swap was a failure and YJ died
    in KKJ’s body. Hence, it would have been easier for viewers to accept the fact that KKJ still came back in YJ’s body.

    Anyway, despite the many flaws and setbacks in this drama, at least I get to enjoy the wonderful chemistry and awesome performance of the OTPs.

    What’s with the ending??? I like Gong Joo but feel like totally a waste of time watching this drama….

  49. 799
    mitch Says:

    …the ending of BIG was sooo disappointing. (as per the last episode). though for me seeing the true KKJ and DR’s closeness is not appropriate, but it’s not also reasonable just to end it that way, right? maybe 1-2 ep is enough to elaborate the ending..

    .but, as per 795 Micc- i think he/she has a point! nobody think of that, right? but of course they should explain it further. a year is not enough to be that matured and looks like SYJ. but i think you get the point of the writer.
    thanks to MICC 795- u gave us another side of the ending. but i pity SYJ, what happened to him? haysssssst.. i want to see the real KKJ act, he’s so cute..

    overall, if we will conclude that KKJ looks like SYJ after a year, the ending was perfect! but they should prolonged the “after years” it’s better if after 5 years? coz it’s not realistic, right..
    but all in all, the whole drama was good. watch this guys!

    mitch Says:

    ..please read the comment/interpretation of 795 MICC for clarification and satisfaction of this kdrama.. i think she has a point coz i love this drama since it started. hehe.. i like her idea/point of view..
