I have a confession to make - I was this close to ditching Big. There was nothing that particularly bothered me about it, but after ep 1, which I liked a lot, I stayed completely uninvolved - I didn't care what happened to Kyung Joon or Daran, I didn't see the chemistry, I had little interest where the story was going to go etc etc. It was like watching a nicely-done work that didn't resonate at all. I checked out this week's eps without much interest, thinking they were going to be my final good-bye to this show.
WRONG WRONG WRONG WRONG LIES LIES LIES LIES!
I am in love with this week's episodes. I giggled, I sighed, I clapped, I swooned. It's like a switch flipped and I care - I somehow fell for Kyung Joon and Daran, separately and together - I see the chemistry now, I am madly curious what will happen and I am invested. My heart turns over every time Kyung Joon looks at Daran with those eyes. I swooned when he kissed her. I screamed when he walked out with her from the wedding. I cheered when Daran kicked out the horrid ex. All of a sudden, this drama got me by the heart (and made me a ridiculously rabid shipper for DR/KJ). It helps that this week's eps were the first ones I felt Gong Yoo was Kyung Joon we met in ep 1 or logical progression of and not some weird distortion and Daran was real. I AM SO IN LOVE NOW, YOU GUYS!!!! Some dramas take a bit to get going and Big seems to have been one of them because all I want now is the next episode. NOW NOW NOW NOW!!!!!
