Actor Lee Jong-suk caused goosebumps with his dark charisma.
In MBC’s Friday-Saturday drama “Big Mouth” (written by Kim Ha-ram, directed by Oh Chung-hwan, produced by AStory, Studio Dragon, A-Man Project), Lee Jong-suk once again caused a thrill. He captivated the small screen by adding persuasive power to the intense development with his meticulous acting skills.
As a proof of this, episode 5 recorded 10% in the metropolitan area and 9.8% nationwide (Nielsen Korea, paid households). The drama is breaking its own highest ratings day after day.
In episode 5, Park Chang-ho (Lee Jong-suk) passed the “Big Mouse” test by Gong Ji-hoon (Yang Kyung-won). He accurately presented a list of 5 drug dealers, and his changed eyes and expressions made people believe that he was Big Mouse. Peter Hong (Shin Seung-hwan), who would falsely state that he saw Big Mouse, died in the interrogation room, further doubling the shock. The next target of Park Chang-ho, who had nothing to fear, was the NR Forum trio who were imprisoned as suspects in the “Gucheon University Hospital Murder Case”. Park Chang-ho urged the three to confess. He threatened, “Otherwise, you’ll all die. As suspicious death in here.”
His move to move in accordance with the Big Mouse Law was brutal. In particular, there was no hesitation or compromise for those who touched his wife Go Mi-ho (Im Yoon-ah). He expressed cold anger towards Gucheon Mayor Choi Do-ha (Kim Joo-hun), who mentioned Go Mi-ho by asking what exactly she is supposed to be, “Let’s not cross the line. I’m responsible for my wife.” He also never backed down on Gong Ji-hoon. He sent chrysanthemum to Gong Ji-hoon’s wife Ashley Kim (Kim Kyu-seon) and said, “My Mi-ho, touch her one more time. I’ll send you the most horrible gift in the world.”
The appearance of lawyer Park Chang-ho, who had to be framed as Big Mouse himself to survive and protect his family, was completely erased. Now, Park Chang-ho is confusing viewers by giving off the aura of Big Mouse, the king of the dark world. Park Chang-ho’s suspense was possible because of Lee Jong-suk’s excellent acting skills. Lee Jong-suk even changes the temperature of the air with a single meaningful word and a change in his eyes. His cold face created a multi-layered tension. Attention is focused on whether Park Chang-ho will be the real Big Mouse and how far Lee Jong-suk’s transformation will be.
Meanwhile, MBC’s Friday-Saturday drama “Big Mouth” starring Lee Jong-suk airs every Friday and Saturday at 9:50 PM.
