About a Spirit Who Enters a Body Which is Not Its Original Body

K-Dramas have an endless array of exciting story lines, with over-the-top romantic moments between the actor and actress. Not all dramas focus on love, either, some of them mix genres, for example, a romance mixed with an action thriller, or another popular them right now is romance mixed with the supernatural.

A few dramas with that last mix have become very popular. Take a look at Goblin, a boundary-breaking drama about a Goblin who can’t die until he finds his bride, but when he finds her, Goblin falls in love with her and no longer wants to die. This particular drama even adds a bit of comedy to the mix.


Another example of a mixed-genre drama is Legend of the Blue Sea. Despite its horror elements and dark, thrilling story line, this drama is more of a light romance in which a mermaid falls in love with a human and they have to overcome the tragedy of their past lives to finally get their happy ending.

Another paranormal romance drama, and this article’s focus, is Big (빅), a Korean televisions series that was written by Hong Jung Eun and Hong Mi Ran, and produced by Ji Byung Hyun and Kim Seung Yoon. Big ran for 16 episodes, from June 4 to July 24, 2012, on Mondays  and Tuesdays at 21:55 p.m.
