  28. 28 : BUNnY Says:

  29. 29 : Bee-Chan Says:

  30. 30 : sonu Says:

    I ship for Kang ji wan & Jung so min 🙂

  31. 31 : Muri Says:

    I can’t empathise with the main character though I ought to and I want to cheer him on, but Ji Hwan’s portrayal is so awful he leaves little to like.

  32. 32 : Lin Says:

    Jz finished d 2nd ep. I am going to enjoy tis drama. Full of action, suspense and comedy . Fighting !Kang Ji Hwan!

  33. 33 : Pam Says:

  39. 39 : wow Says:

    its amazing wow love it love it love it. its unusual story

  40. 40 : sushi12 Says:

    its kinda disappointing that daniel choi is like that inside? don’t tell me for the rest of the episodes also..-.- i watched for him and i couldn’t really see much of him…sad 🙁

  41. 41 : Juana love Says:

    Woooow

  42. 42 : Juana love Says:

    Woooow love it

  43. 43 : zaza Says:

    Hmmm i also prefer Kang Ji Hwan with Jung so min… Let daniel Choi with LDH… I don’t like LDH and i ‘ve never watch any lakorn with her as the lead. I hope they will change to let the Lead actor with the 2nd woman 🙂 I will watch two to three eps more and decide after that.

  44. 44 : Chon chon Says:

    I like every actor in this drama. In particular. KANG JI HWAN, he is a good actor. Excited to see tomorrow. BIG MAN FIGHTING, KANG JI HWAN FIGHTING, CHOICE DANIEL, LEE DA HEE, JUNE SO MIN, FIGHTING ♡♡♡♡♡

  45. 45 : Lea1 Says:

    Great drama so far. Love all the scenes w/Ji-Hwan & So-Min. Their chemistry is far more interesting then Da-Hae. I find the lead actress to be so boring…her facial expression puts me to sleep. Hoping the writer changes Ji-Hwan love interest to So-Min.

  46. 46 : teenboy Says:

    LDH does not fit to be the lead actress she is kind of boring i find the second lead actress so pretty and interesting

  47. 47 : sandy Says:

    Jung so min! I will wait till this drama ends to see if at least the ending is good..i can’t put my faith in the Lead actress..I wish so min was the lead..she can act and entertain…..oh well…same old same old in the kdrama world i see….

  48. 48 : BUNnY Says:

    lee da hee is so thin.shes not attractive tome after all!

  49. 49 : Pam Says:

    this drama is fun to watch , i like it .

  50. 50 : maja Says:

    i hope the writer of this drama gets to read all the comments and make some changes in the romance side of the story…. everybody is rooting for jung so min, that includes me, so i hope it will be jung so min and kang ji hwan who will be paired…

  51. 51 : maja Says:

    for me, lee da hee is another actress who fits more in a villain roles, her looks and facial expression make her look like a villain… another actress is the one that appeared in my love from another star… thats why i didi not get to watch that one though i love lead actor but i don’t like the lead actress.. this one i have to wait again for the ending and see who KJH will end up with if with jung so min then i will watch… i hope its her..

  52. 52 : Nadege Says:

    So far I am loving this Drama & all the characters!!! The casting for each character is fine to me & can’t way to see more & how the story develops!

  53. 53 : terazhang Says:

    @ 51 maja

    it’s true that lee dae hee fits a more villain role….but you really should watch My love from another star…
    The actress jun ji hyun fits her roles perfectly-she’s not a saint nor a villain in that story you know……she is what she is in the story…if not how come her character become all the craze in china lately….

    as for lee da hee….i’m giving her achance…look at how she performs in this drama frst before commenting anything….

  54. 54 : kdramafan Says:

    I like this drama, and i am a fan of KJH
    for the lead actress oh well not to bother … as long as i can see the handsome KJH …. she’s pretty and good match to KJH though

  55. 55 : Sandy Says:

    @maja I agree that some actress play the villain role better just by their looks alone. I’m just on episode 1 of this drama and that is the first thought I had that she’s always a villain maybe we’re in for a change–appears she’s gain some weight too. I will admit, I was hoping that the romance would be between him and Jung So Min–she’s usually the good girl.

    In regards to My Love from Another Star–I absolutely LOVED the actress in that drama. She was not only beautiful, but extremely funny. She was a diva actress, but I loved her in this role because she was also a good girl that had to be tough.

  56. 56 : Sandy Says:

    I went back and read some of the other reviews and noticed there is another Sandy here. I will change my name to Sandy 2 (Sandy @ 55 is me).

    It is nice to know that I am not the only person who would like to see the lead actor with Jung So Min.

  57. 57 : mml Says:

    This is an interesting drama , I hope that the big man can become the great man.
    As i have finished watching episode 1 to episode 3 and I will continue to watch episode 4.

    I will continue to watch this drama and hopefully the leading actor Kang Ji Hwan can punish the bad guy whose making use of him and have a good revenge and on top of it, he can win his love.

  58. 58 : mml Says:

    I have finished watching episode 4. And i like to watch this drama. I’m looking forward to watch episode 5. Maybe, this big man can do something that makes So Mi Ra wanted to help him.

  59. 59 : KDCraze Says:

    Please let me know if Kang Ji Hwan ended up with Jung So Min. I will watch it again. I stopped watching this drama because I can’t stand to see Kang Ji Hwan with Lee Da Hee. I always see Lee Da Hee as a bad person in I Hear Your Voice and Secret. I can’t stand to see her as a lead actress.

  60. 60 : juliaNE04 Says:

    i continue to watch ds if kang ji wan ends with jung so min.

  61. 61 : Tracey Kim Says:

    kang ji hwan so adorable if he was pairing with cheerful actress like yoon eun hye.. so i think it will good if jung so min paired with him 😀

  62. 62 : Pam Says:

    I love this drama ,
    well written , good acting

  63. 63 : Micc Says:

    Lee Da Hee was the main actress in Welcome Rain to My Life. She didn’t just start being the main here.

  64. 64 : Longan Says:

    Never thought to see Jung So Min very sexy 🙂

  65. 65 : wid Says:

    I love this drama

  66. 66 : wid Says:

    Why most of the viewers dont like lee da hee
    She is pretty and can portray her roles as a good girl very well
    We should support her

  67. 67 : Sandy 2 Says:

    wid @ 66, the problem for me is Lee Da Hee isn’t really a good girl at this point–she’s kinda blah. This is not her fault, but the way the writers have written her character. After all she did have thoughts of killing him twice. She’s helping him, while know everything being told to him is a lie–a lie that she’s part of. The only person who hasn’t had any thoughts of trying to harm him is Jung So Min character who he has some real chemistry. There scenes together is worth watching–it’s entertaining.

    I truly cannot get into the romance between him and the lead actress–they have zero chemistry. However, this is a very good drama. There is a story here that’s entertaining. I love it.

  68. 68 : Pam Says:

    very entertained drama , i wonder why rating is so low ?

  69. 69 : Pam Says:

    for me , LDH , lead actress is in very hard to act ,
    tow faces of human being , bad and good .

    She acts ok , as smart , quiet assistant , at least she is not acting cute .

  70. 70 : wingtam Says:

    Can’t imagine how a romance is going to develop between Ji Hyuk and Mi Ra. There is absolutely zero chemistry between them. Besides, Mi Ra is as cold as ice, and a dead beat. (She’s so boring). If it were a romance between Ji Hyuk and Ji Na, then this is another story.

    And this Hyunsung family is one hell of the cruelest family. Incredulous! Gives me the shivers! They should go to hell.

  71. 71 : chalistha fiery Says:

    sayang banget nonton nya baru nympe episode 5,episode slnjtnya kok blm ada apa gmn ea,,,

  72. 72 : eny Says:

    i like this drama, hook me since first episode, I think LDH is good here, the charracter written like that , here she haven’t love KJH yet what i see is she just sympathy with unfairness he got, i think some people just carried away with her previous villain role
    This is the my most love drama airing right now

  73. 73 : Sandy 2 Says:

    eny @ 72, it’s oka for LDH to not have love for KJH yet, but there needs to be some chemistry and there is zero–they have none. They can kiss a 100 times and it still would not be there. It’s not him, it’s her.

    I’m okay with villains also playing loving roles. The actress from Dong Yi and Ruby’s Ring is an excellent villain, but she also plays roles where she’s likable. LDH has never played a role as evil and hateful as this actress–not even close. For me, I’m basing my opinion on what’s happening in this drama. Don’t get me wrong, I still love this drama, but the romance is doing nothing for me. I’m more interested in the revenge factor.

  74. 74 : Innerkad Says:

    First of all, I am not a fan of Lee Da Hee. But one thing for sure is that I totally dont understand why are you guys making so much fuss about Lee Da Hee?
    No matter what you guys said, the Producer nor the Director will replace her ok! Accept that fact please.
    Even if they change her with someone else, someone in this forum will come up with another similar comment.
    So why not just sit down and relax and enjoy the drama?!
    And if any of you totally not happy with any of the acting members, just stop watching it. As simple as that.
    TOO MANY COOKS, SPOIL THE SOUP! Aigooooooo!!!

  75. 75 : wid Says:

    To all fans of big man
    Lets just enjoy the show
    🙂
    Cant wait for next eps hoaaaaaa

  76. 76 : wid Says:

    Btw i also like jung so min very much
    She is cute and beautiful

  77. 77 : wid Says:

    Pls recommend what airing drama worth to watch while waiting the next ep of bigman. Appreciate reply n thanks

  78. 78 : eny Says:

    @sandy2
    I think chemistry is betwen 2 people that in love
    I think it’s strange when people say about chemistry by just they look good pairing or not, i heard many time when ther’s a news about actor pairing with an actress, they already complain about there’s no chemistry, even before they see them together, From your opinion what i get is that chemistry is more about they look good match or not n nothing to do with acting

    Sometimes i watch drama i don’t like some thing but i enjoy some aspect on that drama too, nothing wrong with that

  79. 79 : eny Says:

    @ wid
    I love wonderful days but it long drama, some people don’t like long drama

  80. 80 : mml Says:

    I have finished watching episode 5 and episode 6 and am very curious on those subsequent episodes on how Kim Ji Hyuk can take revenge as someone plot and made him to jail ? I hope Kim Ji Hyuk can be the great big man to fight for justice .

    Looking forward to watch episode 7 and episode 8.

  81. 81 : Sandy 2 Says:

    eny @ 78,

    Actually, I don’t think chemistry has to necessarily do with two people in love, I think it has to do with the way people interact with each other. I can never look at two people and say they have good chemistry just because they look good. I don’t think in this drama that JH and JA look good together, but I will say they have very good chemistry–it’s the way they interact together, personalities.

    The actress that played in Master’s Sun and Greatest Love, I’ve noticed in reviewing other pieces of her work that she usually has great chemistry with her male leads. It’s the subtle things that an actress does that helps create that chemistry.

    The actress playing MR, in most of her dramas, although beautiful, she is very reserved and stoic. It will be interesting to see if she can shed that façade and create chemistry with her lead. I’m not too hopeful at this point after seeing her interactions so far.

    I also think that chemistry is something that just naturally happens with some people especially if their personalities mesh. In this drama, they have created 2 standout scenes where they hoped to create chemistry between JH and MR–they both were a flop. I can guarantee that if those two scenes had taken place between JH and JA, they would have stood out in our memories. Those scene didn’t work because JH cannot create chemistry by himself.

  82. 82 : Sandy 2 Says:

    mml @ 80,

    JH will get some help in taking his revenge. You may have noticed President Cho during the board meeting scene when they won the clothing contract. He’s going to play a role in helping JH according to the official website.

    I actually think he’s probably going to be JH’s father.

  83. 83 : Sandy 2 Says:

    wid @ 77, I like–really like these dramas:

    Angel Eyes
    Wonderful Days
    Wild Chives and Soy Bean Soup

    Or if you haven’t seen these past dramas:
    All About My Romance
    Sly and Single Again
    Emergency Couple
    Greatest Love
    Good Doctor
    Secret
    Giant
    A Good Day for the Wind to Blow aka Happiness in the Wind

    I see you have a problem reading some comments here. Why do you read them and upset yourself? Silly isn’t it?

    I for one do not see anything wrong with the comments. The comments were passed fairly.

    Relax and enjoy the drama.

  87. 87 : Innerkad Says:

    Outerkad #86

    You for one really makes me laugh of loud. Even though you have to disguise yourself, still indirectly you are admitting that you have bitten some bullets. That’s more good enough for being very understanding.

    Now let us relax and really enjoy this drama. Still, i do like reading those comments related to this drama plot and characters. Thank you.

  89. 89 : Sandy 2 Says:

    In regards to this drama, I’m not sure what I’m supposed to feel for MR–although she’s helping JH, I just get the impression she’s greedy for a title. Yeah, JH doesn’t have any money at the moment–I think President Cho is his father, her character just seems wishy washy. We are to believe that she was so in love with DS that she thought about killing JH to harvest his heart. In less than 2 months, she’s developing feelings for JH–no, I don’t like MR character. At least JA is honest.

  90. 90 : T N B Says:

    i think we can start to see more romantic actions between KJH & SMR only at later episodes of this drama. right now i think SMR still luv KDS. she is wavering becos she is now seeing more & more dark side of KDS & his family. this is very confusing for her event hough at one point SMR herself even tried to end KJH life so that KDS will live. KJH presence does not confuse SMR but it’s KJH innocentness that makes SMR start to realise and compare. at the same time, SMR also realised that she is being closely monitored. that is why SMR is not being romantic towards KJH even though KJH on the other hand, is being very obvious towards SMR. i also think that there are gonna be a lot of surprise surprise for KJH in episode 7 & episode 8. at the same time, i just love the way KHD grab KJH hairs for the DNA test and SHR 20,000 won incident at the fast food shop.

  91. 91 : Sandy 2 Says:

    T N B @ 90, I think by the time the romance comes around, I will be off the KJH & SMR love boat. When I think of her telling DS to get someone else to pay the bribe because it’s to dangerous for him to do it himself–she’s not much better than him. Unfortunately, this is one drama where I think I’m going to be rooting for the second lead, although I know it’s a hopeless cause. I’ve never rooted for the second female lead in a drama, I have for a couple of male leads, but never female.

    I two think it was hilarious when KJA go into the bathroom to grab KJH’s hair. I also though it was funny when KJH showed up for the family memorial. This truly is a good drama.

    Now, now that’s better. You are laughing out loud now, not whining, sniffling and grumpy!

    Community spirit and good sense prevail. Ha! Ha!

    Ji Hwan’s bad acting is noticeable. Choi Daniels might have been better as the lead. Daniels appears to have studied the craft. He handles his scenes effortlessly and shows depth. Ji Hwan has appeal but acting is not it.

    Dong Suk’s m.o is to frame people. He has a controlling issue which we saw on several occasions since his return. The build-up from things not going his way culminated in a psychotic episode in his room, after Mira’s reluctance to accept his proposal.

    Could he have framed Mira’s father? A father whose ethos was; look but don’t not touch.

    Dong Suk’s personality is like that of the classic comic book villain suffering from delusions of power or omnipotence and an inflated self-esteem. In short; he is at the extremity of up-himself-ness.

    Now its getting interesting.

  95. 95 : Sandy 2 Says:

    Nudge @ 94, I have to respectfully disagree with you concerning Ji Hwan’s acting. I happen to love the job he’s doing in this drama. He has to display a wide range of emotions for his character–happy, sad, tough, stoic, comedic, etc. I don’t know if Daniel Choi could have handled all these different facets of this character.

    Daniel Choi is also doing a wonderful job as the evil, psychopathic man who is living on borrowed time. The great thing about his role is he doesn’t have to come out of the dark place to become a comedic character. He can stay in the evil mindset at all times.

    Lee Da Hee, who is a wonderful actress who can really grab you and suck you in when it’s emotional crying scenes. She can be just that powerful. However, in this drama I am seeing a limitation in her acting skills. She’s not a romantic lead. She doesn’t know how to create chemistry with her male counterparts. I would say go back and what My Love from Another Star, Greatest Love, Master’s Sun and observe the little, subtle things they actresses do to create those special moments.

    Jung So Min has caught me completely off guard. I didn’t expect to want her to be Ji Hwan’s love interest. I absolutely love the way she portrays her character. If Lee Da Hee could observe the little things that JSM is doing in her acting, it will go a long way for her to create some romance between her and the lead. I look forward to the scenes with JSM in them.

    Hiya Sandy 2

    Yea… I don’t know for sure if Choi Daniels could pull off the lead, I’m only going by what I’m seeing. Which is in contrast to Ji Hwan’s performance pretty amazing. Choi leaves not one screen second to waste. He’s fully utilising every bit.

  101. 101 : Kaycee Says:

    Hotel King is a nice drama, and Roommate the reality show where celebreties living in one house

  102. 102 : eny Says:

    @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

  103. 103 : mml Says:

    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.

    Many things happened in episode 9. Hoping to watch with sub.
    This drama has no wasted scenes. I am addicted to Big Man.

  109. 109 : 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?

  110. 110 : 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!!!

  111. 111 : 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.

  112. 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.

  113. 113 : hz Says:

    more dramas for Song jae rim his acting is great!!

    f ji hwan and so min at ,the end im going to watch it again

  115. 115 : 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.

  116. 116 : 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.

  117. 117 : fragile Says:

    in fact i was waiting for this drama because of kjh.. But i couldnt complete it.. There is nothing new about it.. It is sooo boring.

  119. 119 : lclarakl Says:

    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.

  120. 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!

  121. 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.

  122. 122 : 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?

  123. 123 : So Ra ra Says:

    Ahh. . So hard for hate Kang Dong Suk aka Choi Daniel. And I like So Much So Mi Ra aka Lee Da Hee.

  124. 124 : Sandy 3 Says:

    I like Jin Ah and hate that JH is in love with MR.

    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.

  127. 127 : 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.

  128. 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.

  133. 133 : Thara Says:

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

  134. 134 : 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!

  135. 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.

  136. 136 : Doris Aguirre Says:

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

  137. 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.
