In episode 4 of MBC’s ongoing Fri-Sat drama “Big Mouth”, Go Mi Ho (Girls’ Generation’s Yoona), a tough nurse who struggles to save her husband Park Chang Ho (Lee Jong Suk), attended a hospital seminar hosted by the hospital director Hyun Joo Hee (Ok Ja Yeon) and suddenly made a bold remark that she had an “unpublished paper by Professor Seo Jae Yong (Park Hoon)”, a major keyword in the murder case at Gucheon University Hospital. Go Mi Ho drew attention with her daring action of throwing the bait.

After that, Go Mi Ho was scared when she felt like someone was following her every night. She then met Park Chang Ho to deliver the con-man Big Mouse’s list of drug dealing customers given by mayor Choi Do Ha (Kim Joo Heon), raising questions about the next episode.

”Big Mouth” marks an important acting challenge for Yoona as she tried a noir drama for the first time. After 4 episodes with a high ratings streak, Yoona is drawing praise from viewers for her portrayal of Go Mi Ho with her low-pitched voice tone, clear diction, and good understanding of the character.
