Heirs: I’m in love with you!!

h6

Or with Kim Tan. Or Lee Min Ho. I can’t guarantee this post will make any sense because I’m so excited for Heirs right now. I’m just gonna pour my feelings. The wait for next week is intolerable and my ‘like’ for it has now converted into ‘love’. Just to be less confusing, I’m just jotting down some points which I liked.

  • Firstly, our hero Kim Tan. I knew I liked him right off the bat when he was shown in a completely different light from what we expected (or rather had apprehensions about). He is thoughtful, caring and a decent guy.
  • The main couple. They are so sweet. I can understand why Tan fell for Eun Sang so soon. He saw her in the similar circumstances as his own and being lonely for so long, he just felt connected to her. And of course, she is so cute. I can’t say it’s love but the attraction and infatuation is definitely the right word for them. I love their silent moments, the way they look at each other, it is all so adorable and romantic. And Lee Min Ho is nailing it with his intent gazes. My heart just melts whenever he does that. I liked the natural conversations between the couple with very less bickering and more of a friendship vibe which I found refreshing. Even the awkwardness is part of fun for me.
  • I liked all the scenes of episode 3. Going to that almond farm, then when their car broke down, the motel and finally when they parted. I love Eun Sang for all her extra personality traits apart form being the typical hard-working girl. She doesn’t like it (for a change) and knows how to enjoy when a situation permits. Also, she is so cute with her horror movie obsessions and references. She might be plain on paper but Park Shin Hye adds her own energy and cuteness to it. I liked the note which she pasted on the board that it was all like a dream to her. Also, she clearly stated her reason to not show any interest in Tan when she said about the Hollywood sign that it looks so close and yet, it’s so far.
  • Episode 4 brought them under the same roof and I loved their hide and seek. When Tan writes on her social networking account that he is there to attest that it was not a dream, I just found it endearing. And from the time when Tan gets the inkling that Eun Sang might be the girl in his home, his impatience when she doesn’t reply and finally the moment when he opens that kitchen door, I felt my heart racing with excitement and I just loved Lee Min Ho’s expressions and I think it was then that I realised that now I’m in love with the show. There was this mixture of being pleasantly surprised and the realisation of the simple truth that they are so far away even when it’s only a door that parts them. I’m glad that Lee Min Ho took on this role where he is head over heels in love, and is mature at the same time (unlike Gu Jun Pyo). Just to make my point, I’ve added the screen caps:

  • The other random things: Surprisingly, I like the relaxed pace of Heirs. Also, the different interconnected characters. I’m so looking forward to the Tan-Young Do face-off and want to know what happened between them. Also, I think the show must reveal the mystery behind Tan’s big bro Won’s harsh treatment. I loved that scene when the kids won over Young Do. So funny. AndΒ Chan Young remains the most adorable and warm character of Heirs. And yes, Tan’s mom is hilarious as well.

    I loved the moment Tan realised (or at least, had the thought) that Eun Sang was living with him. He was on tenterhooks waiting to confirm it, and so was I. When he was going down to see her in the kitchen, I was right there with him, nervous and excited about what he was going to see when he opened the door, and how he was going to react. Love love love this show.

      Me too! Me too! His excitement mixed with fear, the thrill of possibility, the way he had to steel himself before he opened the door, and then, the final look of realisation on his face, terrified…OOH my beating heart! Lee Min Ho totally rocked that moment.

      I’m a total HEIRHEAD!!

    …just as i thought…so Kim Tan is starting to like Eun Sang at the end of episode 2?..and e3 and e4 also show the affection that Kim Tan feels for Eun Sang..excited to see e5 ‘coz Tan already saw Eun Sang and we are all in intense for the next episode …. now that the gorgeous lead is back Korea what i’m anticipate is not only the romance between the leads …but also the face off between Tan and Young Do..the fox and the tiger finally meet again.

    I’m also really liking Heirs. Both episodes 3 and 4 were great. All the cute moments, Kim Tan meeting with his brother, them living in the same house.. πŸ™‚
    And what you said about Eun Sang is true- she feels that Tan is something unapproachable for her like the Hollywood sign. And his answer that you can get close to it..Ahh so cute. And I’m intrigued to see what will happen now that they’re gonna be under the same roof. Because that distance that Eun Sang is feeling is gonna be so much more evident now.
    Can’t wait for the next episodes.. πŸ™‚

      I’m actually enjoying this “can’t wait” phase because it happens very rarely when I live watch a show….it usually is the case during marathon when I have even watched 4 episodes back to back….haha πŸ˜€

      Eun Sang will definitely try to distance herself from Kim Tan but I think he will gain more courage now that he is back….hopefully he’ll not become the old bad guy (as is hinted) again πŸ™‚

        It is hinted that he was a bad guy, yes. But It is also hinted that he wasn’t particularly happy about it. It was that thing about the tiger that pretends to be the tiger that Young Do said.. I’m very intrigued to see what happened and what will happen now that Tan is back.. πŸ™‚

            I think I have..Hope there isn’t a new new one that I haven’t seen yet.. Lots of Young Do and Eun Sang and Kim Tan and everyone back in school.. I’m not sure though how I feel about Young Do falling for Eun Sang.. Have to wait and see of course.. πŸ™‚

            Ok i hadn’t watched this one! It’s adorable.. Can’t wait!
            And fun fact while watching it my internet crushed. I take as a good sign that this drama is gonna be good. Like fireworks good! I’m not making sense, I know! πŸ™‚

    I loved the slow build of them being in the same house and picking up little clues… and the look on Tan’s face when he realizes it’s really her… perfect!
