The Cast of Big

Getting to know all the actors of Big is a lot of fun. The characters are easy to remember and even harder to forget. I researched the main actors and actresses, which is always a lot of fun. So let's learn a little more about the title cast of Big and drool over them.

Gong Yoo 

Seo Yoon-Jae is played by the breathtakingly handsome, Gong Yoo. His looks parallel those of Cary Grant and other classic Hollywood actors. He first caught the public's eye as ..... in Biscuit teacher and Star Candy, his first leading role all the way back in 2005. And I wouldn't be a true Kdrama fan if I did not mention his time spent on a little show called, The 1st Shop of Coffee Prince. It actually sky-rocketed him into Korean Wave Star status. So keep an eye on this one.

Hard Love (2002)
One Fine Day (2006)

Finding Mr. Destiny (2010)
Silenced (2011)

Lee Min-Jung
Gil Da-Ran is brought to life by Lee Min-Jung. Min-Jung started her career right out of college, where she majored in Theater, eventually earning her degree. She worked as a playwright until 2008, where she landed the first role that would make her a household name: Jae-kyung! She was the Fiance of Jun Pyo on Boys Over Flowers! Not only was she fabulous on that show, but ever since, she has maintained her spotlight with ease.

Boys Over Flowers (2009)

Maybe these photos will jog your memory. I <3 BOF.
 Jan Di was soooo flabbergasted.
Man oh man... If Lee Min Ho went grocery shopping with me.... I would grate cheese on his abs.

Bae Suzy
You may recognize Ma-Ri as the famous Suzy. That's right she is well-known model, actress and singer Suzy from Miss A. If you don't know of her Kpop life, then you may recognize her from Dream High. For only shooting dramas for the past 2 years, the girl has been super busy making her star rise.

Check out the multifaceted stunner in her own music video.
 And a snippet from Dream High... Because I can.

Shin Won-Ho
If the fresh face of Shin Won-Ho doesn't look familiar to you, it is because that face is SUPER FRESH. Big is his second role. Don't worry, he has caught some attention as KGJ and I am sure we will see him again.

Bachelor's Vegetable Store (2011)

Baek Sung-Hyun
Baek Sung-Hyun practically grew up in front of a camera. He has starred in movies and television shows since he was 5 years old. He landed his first big break playing a younger version of a lead in Stairway to Heaven. He has numerous movies under his belt too. I think that he was the only one who could have given Choong-Sik such, um, depth.

See and See Again (1998)
Stairway to heaven (2003)
The Accidental Couple (2009)
Queen Insoo (2011)

Marathon (2005)
Blades of Blood (2010)

Just for fun.. watch these awesome trailers for the show.

 And I have added some shirtless pics for good measure. 
 You're welcome!
I realize this is in poor taste. But admit it, you looked.

If you have any questions about any of the people I have told you about today, just ask. Or if I missed your favorite character and you want to know about them, please let me know!

Comments make me happier than calorie-free brownies!


  1. I love Gong Yoo soooooo much. Have you seen Finding Mr. Destiny yet? He plays this adorkable private investigator.

    Can't wait to hear what you think of Big!


    1. @YA
      Gong Yoo should literally be called Gong Whoo. The boy is hot. I have NOT watched Finding Mr. Destiny, but I will. Oh yes. (adds to list)

      It is really good to hear from you. :)
