Lee Jong Suk & Lim Yoona On Their Chemistry, Characters & New Drama ‘Big Mouth’

A lawyer with a disastrous win rate finds himself handling a murder case and given his ‘Big Mouth’ bites off more than he can chew as he is labelled the genius con artist overnight, ‘Big Mouth’ realizes he needs to clear himself of the charges and protect his wife and family. As the noose tightens around him, he needs to smoothly work around his best laid plans to expose a huge conspiracy which involves several conglomerates.
The latest thriller noir K Drama ‘ Big Mouth’ stars Lee Jong Suk ( Romance Is a Bonus Book, ‘W’) who plays lawyer ‘Park Chang Ho’, Girls’ Generation’s Lim Yoona as his wife – Go Mi Ho and is directed by Oh Choong Hwan ( Hotel Del Luna, Start Up). Actor Lee Jong Suk who returns to the K Drama space after his mandatory military service was last seen in the 2019 romantic drama ‘Romance is A Bonus Book.’ The actor said he was aware there is anticipation amongst fans, ‘I was nervous initially not because I was back on screens after a long time but some scenes were tougher than others in this show’.
Talking about his character Jong Suk says he was drawn to the premise of a lawyer turning into a genius conman.
‘My first thought about my character was he is pitiful and ordinary but realized he has an inner strength. As he oscillates between good and evil to survive, depicting his emotional journey was a thrilling experience for me as an actor.’ Lim Yoona, last seen in the 2020 series – ‘Hush’ describes her character ‘Go Mi Ho’ as one of her most intense to date. “I am testing new waters with this show, it’s in the noir space and my character is a nurse that is first for me. ‘Mi Ho’ is a very wise character, she is proactive and resilient. I am a bit like this in real life and wanted to bring that to the fore on screen,” the singer and actor said with a smile.
Big Mouth being Jung Suk and Lim Yoona’s first screen outing together, the actors are clear not to expect any heavy romance between their characters on screen. “We are playing a married couple and also there are expectations from our fans and viewers. But most of our scenes are not together since we are usually in separate spaces, so the romance aspect may not be satisfactory, but our characters are very supportive of each other,” says Jung Suk.
His co-star Yoona chimes in with a laugh, “I didn’t have to think twice when I said yes to the project and playing Jung Suk’s co-star. Wish we had more scenes together but the narrative is such that it’s not possible, but I admire Jung Suk’s sense of detail and I felt we really worked well.” ‘Big Mouth’ is currently streaming on Disney Plus Hotstar.
