Official Synopsis: 18-year-old Kang Kyung Joon’s (Shin Won-Ho) spirit suddenly becomes transplanted into the body of 30-year-old Seo Yoon Jae (Gong Yoo). Seo Yon Jae is a successful doctor who is engaged to high school teacher Gil Da Ran (Lee Min Jung). Gil Da Ran just so happens to be the teacher of 18-year-old Kang Gyung Joon. More problems ensue when 30-year-old Seo Yoon Jae falls in love with another woman.

Ratings: MBC‘s ‘Light and Shadow‘ increased in ratings as it achieved a 19.2%, still holding strong in first place. SBS‘ ‘The Chaser‘ has been maintaining its success with a 13.2%. The same doesn’t hold true for KBS‘ ‘Big‘, however, as it dropped in ratings to a 7.9%.

allkpop TV Guide: Big Ep. 8

Recap of Ep. 8: After Kyung Joon reveals Yoon Jae’s ring to Da Ran, the heartbreaking moment is interrupted by Ma Ri (miss A‘s Suzy)who threatens she’ll reveal the truth about Kyung Joon’s soul if Kyung Joon and Da Ran marry. As Ma Ri is about to tell the truth to Da Ran’s parents, the parents notice Yoon Jae’s ring on Da Ran and ask about their future marriage. However, Da Ran is still unsure about her decision and Yoon Jae’s true feelings.

Da Ran visits Kyung Joon, who is watering the plants. They start to horse around, and Da Ran’s heart begins to beat faster while she watches Kyung Joon. However, as the two dry themselves after the water fight, Da Ran notices her ring went missing. She eventually stops searching for it, making Kyung Joon angry that she gave up so easily.

Despite their fight, Kyung Joon goes to Da Ran’s house to drop off documents she had left behind. He becomes involved in the search for Choong Shik (Baek Sung Hyun), who ran away after his mother interfered during his confession to Ma Ri. Enlisting Ma Ri’s help, Kyung Joon finds Choong Shik at a spa, where he advises Choong Shik to return to his mother before it’s too late. Although Choong Shik agrees to return, both he and Kyung Joon are alarmed to hear that Ma Ri sent Da Ran away to the Seoul subway station. Da Ran looks frantically for her brother, but becomes frightened by the leering homeless men. However, Kyung Joon comes to her side, leaving abruptly and ignoring Ma Ri.

Ma Ri, sad that Kyung Joon was furious with her, revealed to Da Ran how Kyung Joon’s mother had died. After Ma Ri told Kyung Joon that he should prevent his mom from meeting her dad, who was waiting to confess to her, Kyung Joon and his mother walk into an alleyway where a man suddenly shoots Kyung Joon’s mother. Da Ran goes to Kyung Joon and comforts him with a back hug.

The next day, Da Ran searches for the ring Yoon Jae had given to her, and Kyung Joon hands it to her. Da Ran asserts that this time she is sticking by Yoon Jae’s side for good. Meanwhile, Se Young meets up with Yoon Jae’s mother and asks about the “Miracle” book. Yoon Jae’s mother explains that Yoon Jae’s father had made it. The book states that if one angel saves another angel, that angel will save another person.

As the wedding preparations move forward, Da Ran and Kyung Joon agree that by the time Kyung Joon has matured, the two will go separate ways even if the body switch hasn’t occurred. Kyung Joon drives Da Ran to the airport, where she plans to travel to China alone for their “honeymoon”. Kyung Joon is disappointed he’s left behind, until he realizes that Da Ran left her passport and plane ticket in the car. Kyung Joon purposefully arrives late, and the two agree to travel together. As Da Ran is a little flustered at the idea of a “honeymoon” with Kyung Joon, Kyung Joon experiences a moment of soul shifting. He momentarily visits his own body but returns back to Yoon Jae’s body, shocking both Da Ran and himself.

kdramacrazy’s Thoughts:

[Note : This post reflects the opinions of the author, and not necessarily those of allkpop.]

Maybe the poor editing and the abrupt tonal shifts detracted from my enjoyment of the episode, but it left me a little bored, even during the hot romantic parts with Kyung Joon and Da Ran. The beginning of the episode was a little jarring to start with, from Kyung Joon’s momentous confession that he would stop liking Da Ran. Not only did it suddenly shift to a comedic tone with Ma Ri’s arrival, belittling his revelation, but it also was neglected throughout the episode as the relationship dynamic remained the same between Da Ran and Kyung Joon. Bringing me to another weakness in terms of plot. The writers have a lot to work with when it comes to the soul switching mystery, Yoon Jae’s mystery affair with Se Young (Jang Hee Jin), the romance, and the growing up, but the plot is being pulled down and dragged by with Kyung Joon asking Da Ran to marry him and Da Ran trying to deny her feelings. And although I love how Da Ran is finally maturing and gaining confidence by getting back together with Yoon Jae, I’m a little confused about where this is going to lead us again. Ultimately, even the final moment of soul switching just left me scratching my head. Yes, it seems like they’re getting closer to the moment of soul switching, but it doesn’t help us or the characters get closer to solving the mystery on their own. I was so excited that they would be returning to their bodies, especially right after the marriage, so I was a little disappointed.

But, I still like how the relationship between Kyung Joon and Da Ran is going, despite it being repetitive. I’m quite interested in how the angel story will come into play with reality. Since Yoon Jae saved Kyung Joon, I’m interested in who Kyung Joon will save. I hope that it won’t be literal like Kyung Joon saving Da Ran from an oncoming car, but more metaphorical. Because we can see how both help each other grow as Da Ran gains confidence and Kyung Joon gains the comfort and maturity he needs. And I’m going to guess that Kyung Joon and Yoon Jae are brothers or half-brothers. I would say half-brothers as they share the same father, but the mother’s reaction towards Kyung Joon is way too nice if you’re going to consider that your husband had another child with a different woman.

And although Ma Ri’s character has been annoying me, here’s some eye candy for miss A fans.
