The Heirs D-15: It all started in this moment…

I walked through the opening among the fragrant almond trees, where the leaves broke the sunlight into irregular shapes on the dirt road, and there he was.


Standing under the sun, whole and complete, his shadow long and unbroken on the ground.


Such a strange and unexpected sight, so different from me; my shadow running jagged along the ground with the dark cast of the surrounding trees.



I drew near and so did he.



I could not meet his steady gaze and my heart faltered underneath it.


There we stood under the shade of the arch of trees as silence heavy with emotion filled the air between us.heirs-10

Suddenly, water broke through the silence, scattering the sunlight and our unspoken words into the air.


To be continued…


Did you enjoy my fake scene recap? Hehe. It feels good to be doing this again, except I am out of practice and without a good background about these drama. I did what I could, ordering the pictures and trying to draw inspiration from Park Shin Hye and Lee Minho’s facial expressions.Β There was not much information about this scene from the press release of these stills except that it was shot in California at an almond farm on September 8. How long did they film in the U.S.???


The press called this couple the “WooBi couple” from the phrase “woo-wol bi-joo-uhl couple.” “Wool-wol” means superior and “bi-joo-uhl” is the Korean pronunciation of visual. So there you have it, the “superior visuals couple.” Oh, the things that Koreans come up with.

  1. It’s a problem though, because Woobie himself is also in the drama!

    Good Morning Joonni, it’s been awhile since I’ve commented on your blog site.
    Your anticipation of the drama does excite’s everyone, especially when the whole story plot is aloft in different ways…
    When you have time email me, and I’ll tell you details of the “Huntington Beach” experience w/ Minoz & Klove.

    With your recap, the stills began to look better in terms of the OTP. The place is gorgeous, but I’m not shipping them. Not yet.

        ‘Cause I don’t feel it yet and am not liking at the moment how they look together πŸ™‚

          You’re right! We still need to watch them and see their chemistry πŸ˜€

    side note: do you have any idea how hot it is in an almond orchard in California in September? He must have been dying in that suit, and her in that denim jacket.

  6. Hmmm. The scene looks gorgeous..but somehow they dont look like students.. especially LMH… anyone lese feels their chemistry is too dense??

      Yes, they look like young adults… I still don’t understand the reason they made this as a high school drama when nobody of the cast look like teenagers.

    I’ve missed you and welcome back!
    I’m excited for Heirs!!! I think you summed up the expectation for this show for a lot of us in your last post — low expectation; high excitement.

    I’m curious — how are k-netizens responding to Heirs’ build-up promotion? Are they as hyped up as we, international fans, are?

    I’ve read that Medical Top Team is pushing its airing date by a week, so Heirs and Medical Top Team will go head-to-head. I’m nervous and excited and nervous πŸ™‚

    Can’t wait to read your recaps.

    lol, so “bi-joo-uhl” is Korean for “visual” :O

    Kim Tan’s jacket is the same one he wore in the promo still. Why is he so hawwwttt? *faints*

  11. Love your possible rendition. They will have been 3 weeks in California. I was a small extra in the San Diego filming and was able to get an autograph of LMH on one of my sketches of him from Huntington Beach.

      Oh Dominique, thank you for sharing your experience filming with them. Wow!

      No such thing as “small extra” , I think. You filmed with them – that is more iimportant.

      Now, am thinking of your LMH sketch with LMH signature, no less! That is so priceless, dear. So happy for you. (Now, I think of my former uni classmate who has Bono’s autograph in her diary….ahhhhh!)

      You fortunate souls! πŸ˜‰

      Hi Dominique:
      Your experience must be interesting. How do you find acting next LMH? Did you get to act close to him? When Heirs shows, you must tell us where you are in the drama.

    what i really like about this writer are the amazingly romantic and beautiful paradise- -like-landscapes scenes she delivers us…anyone remeber the kiss from gentelman’s dignity under the moon light and the flying petals under the cherry tree??..yeah i was kind of expecting the almond farm scene and i’m sure it’s gonna be breathtaking!!

      Agree with you mika11…..Especially, the last 3 stills above, show promise of good cinematography. Same is true of the first frame of first vid teaser. Almost reminded me of superb cinematography in Jo In Sung’s drama (TWTWB).

      Thanks Joonni for these updates & stills of LMH.

    Joonni, thank you for Heirs updates, especially for LMH stills…….By the way, that sunshine of a header is tops! That man!!! He’s been mercilessly “scarce”, yet nobody SeGa-mitten has ever really gotten over him ❀ ❀ ❀

    Joonni, I loved the “fake” scene. There is no way to hide that amazing writing skills you have. I’m happy to be able to check your blog and see new posts from you. We are getting closer everyday, to the start of Heirs.

    Yeah, I was faked! But it was a good (fake) “recap”–beginning w/ a narration from the female lead. Your fingers are itching to write and only LMH will do it for you, Joonni. LSG “failed” at it and CJH couldn’t do it either. But your fingers distinctly remember how it was recapping a Gen. Choi–what, about a year ago??? Wow! You haven’t lost your touch. You just need a LMH to motivate you, hopefully sans any physical pain. TC πŸ˜‰

  16. I just want to see him surf.
