Drama Review - Big Man

As far as premises go, Korean drama is not a very creative industry. Each genre has its own tropes it mostly refuses to budge from and having seen a few makes it easier to predict most. With melodrama, there are certain elements that are often there. A revenge story, a tragic romance where the woman is somehow connected to the villain's side, cartoonish antagonists, angst. 'Big Man' sounded like a terribly soapy and silly work before it started. Yet somehow, it managed to become quite the pleasant surprise.

Kim Ji-hyeok (Kang Ji-hwan) is a simple man. Having been a petty criminal in the past, he is living a small life in a marketplace with the woman he calls mother, his biological parents having abandoned him as a baby. When Kang Dong-seok (Choi Daniel), a chaebol heir with a heart condition, needs a transplant to survive, his parents create a plan to kill Ji-hyeok and take his heart, which is a perfect match.
