Spoilers for 'Big Mouth' Episode 11
SEOUL, SOUTH KOREA: K-drama viewers, are you finally ready to find out who Big Mouse is? After an exciting couple of weeks, ‘Big Mouth’ has finally hinted at the mysterious conman’s identity. ‘Big Mouth’ is the next hit K-drama that has taken over everyone’s TV screens as the noir thriller marks actor Lee Jong-suk’s return from his military service. While he did a cameo for the sequel of movie ‘The Witch’, ‘Big Mouth’ is his first K-drama since his discharge.
With almost all of Lee Jong-suk’s K-drama being a hit, he has achieved a cult-like status where viewers tune in to watch any project he is in. ‘Big Mouth’ was no different as it became an instant from the day of its premiere. And there is good reason for it too as the K-drama is an exciting suspense drama following unsuccessful lawyer Changho who accidentally gets mistaken for a powerful criminal who is known as Big Mouse when he is wrongfully jailed. And while Changho tries to clear his name and guess the identity of the actual conman, social media is also abuzz as viewers have been making theories since day 1.
Who is Big Mouse in 'Big Mouth'?
Theories and lists and debunking explanations are making the rounds as viewers are trying to find the identity of Big Mouse and it looks like the K-drama took pity on us. In episode 11 aired on September 2, it seems that ‘Big Mouth’ is finally laying out clues for the fans to connect the dots. Many had wondered if Big Mouse was Changho himself faking his innocence, his wife Miho, her father Gikwang, Mayor Doha, Gong Jihoon, or even Changho’s best friend Kim Soontae. But following the plot developments in the last few episodes, it could very well be the jolly and unsuspecting room leader No Park.
Some viewers got together and theorized that No Park could be Big Mouse as he was the only one who knew how to read tarot cards. Tarot cards were being used by Big Mouse and Changho to secretly communicate. He was also the one who taught Changho how to read tarot cards. On top of it, when Changho was fulfilling the wishes of the inmates, No Park asked him to look for his daughter and told Changho that he was arrested because he was in a hit and run while trying to find her. But in the beginning, it was hinted that he was in prison for attempted murder which could only be hidden if he had connections.
Well, in episode 11, we finally got more information on Big Mouse. It seems that someone close to the con man died because of Professor Seo’s research paper exposing the Gucheon Hospital’s illegal experimentation. Viewers are theorizing that No Park’s daughter died while being experimented on by the hospital and he wants Changho to find his daughter’s killer. With the warden also being Big Mouse’s right-hand man and being close to No Park, many think No Park might be the conman.
At the end of the episode, Changho tells the warden to arrange a meeting and when he goes to meet Big Mouse at the VIP’s lair, he sees No Park sitting grimly. But it could also be a red herring as similarly, the K-drama had given us a cliffhanger by making us believe Jerry and the warden was Big Mouse when Changho tried to catch the conman on two different occasions and met them instead.
‘Big Mouth’ airs every Friday and Saturday at 9:50 pm KST (8:50 am) on MBC and Disney+.
