Yoona & Lee Jong-suk in Big Mouth
Girls’s Generation may not be producing K-pop hits recently, but it doesn’t mean we’ve seeing less of its members. Sooyoung, for example, is back on thesilver screen with the new Korean drama So I Married An Anti-Fan. Just this morning, news broke that Yoona received an offer to lead the lawyer drama Big Mouth with Lee Jong-suk, who received it last month. The two are currently reviewing the offers, and the drama is scheduled to air in the second half of 2021.
Big Mouth‘s plot
Big Mouth follows a 3rd-rate lawyer, Park Chang-ho, whose case success rate is about 10%. He is also nicknamed by his colleagues as “big mouth”, which explains the drama’s working title.
Chang-ho takes up a murder case and a series of peculiar events follow. He is then faced with the choice of protecting himself in a corrupted society, or becoming “the better evil” by outwitting the villains to protect his loved ones.
The script of Big Mouth will be penned by Haram, together with Jang Young-chul and Jung Kyung-soon, and directed by Oh Chung-hwan, who directed the acclaimed dramas such as Hotel Del Luna and While You Were Sleeping.
The cast of Big Mouth
Jong-suk is said to be in talks to play the main lead in Big Mouth after he was offered the role back in April. If he accepts, this will be his first drama after completing his mandatory military service. He has 2 other projects upcoming, and both of them are films – The Witch: Part 2, a sci-fi mystery, and Decibel, a thriller action movie.

However, she becomes a person who acts hastily and has a foul mouth, and her influence in shaping the character of Park Chang-ho is clear.
