The Big Confession Happens in ‘Big’
Secrets were unveiled and feelings were left open in the most recent episode of Big.
The July 2 broadcast of KBS2’s Big, its ninth episode, showed Gil Da Ran (Lee Min Jung) making the big confession about the feelings she had kept bottled up inside her all this time.
Da Ran, who couldn’t bring herself to forget about her fiancée Seo Yoon Jae (Gong Yoo), realizes that she had been falling for Kang Kyung Joon (Gong Yoo) all the time she had bickered and quarreled with him.
She stands in front of a movie theater alone after passing her concert tickets to Ma Ri (Bae Suzy) so that she can accompany Kyung Joon, but Kyung Joon finds her instead and turns up in front of her.
Da Ran feels flattered at how Kyung Joon chose her over Ma Ri, and says to Kyung Joon, who was concentrating on the lecture coming from his earphones, “Kyung Joon, I feel weird. I don’t know why, but I’m happy that you’re here.”
Kyung Joon put on a funny expression, but it wasn’t made certain whether he heard her or not.
The ending scene of the episode was romantic yet didn’t involve any kissing, just eye contact, proving the actors’ prowess and the scriptwriters’ subtlety in romance.
Viewer boards were flooded with posts cheering the couple on after Da Ran made her confession, such as, ‘Gong Yoo’s eyes look on so lovingly’, ‘I don’t think I’ll be able to go to sleep tonight’, ‘My heart stopped when he gave her one side of his earphone’ and ‘Gong Yoo’s eyes are burning.’
