Jung So Min 정소민 as Kang Jin Ah in her New KBS 2TV Drama "BIG MAN 빅맨" 2014

Jung So Min 정소민 as Kang Jin Ah 
in her New KBS 2TV Drama
 "BIG MAN 빅맨" 2014 

And we’ve got a leading lady for Big Man! Jung So Min has been cast as Kang Jin Ah, sister of Daniel Choi’s character. Okay so she’s not the main female lead, but she’s likely the second female lead, or the prominent female side character, because she ends up liking Kang Ji Hwan’s character.

Kang Jin Ah is described to be someone who likes doing things her own way and getting what she wants. Not too untypical of a chaebol daughter. She has a major crush on Kim Ji Hyuk (Kang). Hopefully it comes off more comedic than melodramatic. Bratty daughters are hard to like, so I find that her character would be “successful” if she’s either super shallow to add a level of comedy or she’s super complex to add a level of intrigue to the story.

Jung last appeared in jTBC’s Can We Get Married and a drama special on KBS after that. She’s super talented and I expected her to take on more projects more quickly, but she’s really taking her time and being choosy with her projects. Here’s hoping she’s got a good one with this drama.
