Recap: The Heirs Episode 8

vlcsnap-2013-11-01-02h59m31s38

Two very beautiful people, with very twisted personalities. Have you seen their parents?

the heirs 28

We all long to be something.
You, to me, and I, to you,
long to become a gaze that won’t be forgotten.

Last verse of the poem Young Do quoted yesterday- The Flower by Kim Chun-soo

I see loneliness as a big theme in this drama; people who are alone because 1) there is no one to love them, and 2) they shun those who want to love them because they are afraid of getting hurt. When you love, you open yourself up to pain; it makes you vulnerable. Eun Sang won’t open up to Tan, Won won’t up to Tan, Young Do rejected Tan’s friendship because he was ashamed, and Hyun Joo has built a barrier against Won. Poor Tan, getting rejected by all those people. In this way, Bo Na is quite an awesome character, unafraid to love wholeheartedly and passionately, open to getting hurt and willing to fight hard. Yes, it makes her prickly and sometimes unreasonable towards Eun Sang, but Eun Sang understands where Bo Na is coming from.

When and how will Eun Sang, Won, and Young Do open up to Tan? We now know where all their fear and anger is coming from, and I am ready for this third chapter of the drama that will explore their struggles to fight against their own prejudice and open their hearts. Are you?

Episode 8

vlcsnap-2013-10-31-23h43m18s64 

Tan talks to her outside. “Why didn’t you pick up? Did you go to YD’s hotel?” He calls her crazy for going. ES says in the U.S. she even went to the house of someone who could have been a drug dealer. “I’m not going to do something stupid.” Tan retorts, “That was stupid. Why did you follow me? What did you trust about me?” ES replies, “You aren’t someone like that.” Tan asks, “How do you know that?”

ES can’t answer. All she says is that she went to help JY get the charges canceled. Tan is exasperated- “You believed that?” ES says she doesn’t, but she had to help out JY. He kept her secret.

Tan yells that JY is going to transfer anyway. How many times does he have to tell her to not get involved in these type of situations? ES says it is his fault that YD keeps bugging her. Tan responds that this is why he is so worried. Because it is his fault. “That something will happen to you because of me. Please, I beg you. Don’t make me worry. Can’t you just do nothing?”

ES yells back, “Can’t you leave me alone? My life is difficult enough already, but it seems YD has caught on to something, and with you, everyday it is getting more uncomfortable. I don’t want a lot in life. I just want to graduate and live just a bit better than now. I don’t know what to do.”

Tan: “Shall I tell you? Leave my house immediately tomorrow. Do you want to keep going to school? Then start liking me now. If possible, sincerely.”

Tan confesses directly, “I like you.”

Tan states, “So from now on I will actively meddle in your affairs and invade your privacy.” ES tries to leave, saying she will pretend she didn’t hear anything, but Tan stops her. “You heard everything. You can’t pretend you didn’t hear anything.” ES wants to go in, but he wants her to answer him.

Tan gets call from his dad, but he ignores it. ES gets call from KA. Tan tells her not to pick up, even though she says it is from his mom. ES says she needs to pick up. “This is the difference between you and me, and I think this is my answer.”

Before ES can pick up the phone, Tan takes it from her and answers instead. He tells his mom he and ES are talking about something important. He hangs up. He says to ES, “We can close the difference between the us, and answer me again.”

ES is confused, saying she wants her phone back and that she doesn’t understand what Tan is saying. Tan repeats what he said to her before: “Like me starting now. I like you. Which part was hard?”

ES just keeps asking for her phone back, choking up and crying that the phone is expensive, and she needs to use it to text her mom….

Tan stares at her. “If I want to hug you right now, am I crazy?” ES exclaims, “I’ll kill you.”

Tan hugs her. “Don’t cry. Don’t say you don’t like me. Say you’ll think about it. I beg you.”

Back at the Kim residence, KA wants to know why Tan and ES were together. Tan says he had to ask ES for a favor. He hit someone and didn’t want her to report to KA. The phone call to Tan was from dad. Seems he knows Tan hit YD. KA guesses it must have been JS who told on him.

KA wants to know from ES who Tan hit. ES wants KA to hear directly from Tan. ES won’t answer. KA then warns, “Who are you to make Tan come to you? Do you think it makes sense that you meet Tan separately outside. If you keep behaving this way, you and your mom can’t stay in this house.”

Dad heard that Tan hit YD.  Tan notes that dad never had any interest before he went to the US or even when he was in the the US when Tan did even worse things. He was always busy with work. Dad says he was busy running the company. Tan: “Then we will get more inheritance than attention from you.”  Dad says to Tan, “You’re mom is the chairman of school.” Tan retorts, “My mom is not the chairman, but your live-in girlfriend.”

Tan sees ES come out of KA’s room, and he asks if KA yelled at ES.  ES asks Tan to not talk to her at home. I don’t want things to become tiring.” She leaves to go to the kitchen.

Tan follows her to the kitchen. He wants to know what KA said. He asks, “Will you accept if I apologize in her stead?” ES wants Tan to leave; she is worried that KA will come. Tan jokes around with ES so she can feel better, saying “Are you sure you anxious, not nervous because you are here with me? Unfortunately, ES is in no mood. Tan says he wants to make her feel better with these jokes. ES keeps telling Tan to leave, and Tan complains, “Why do you keep telling me to leave? This is my house.” ES replies, “Fine, then I will go.” Tan points out that everywhere she goes, is his house. “Do you know how happy I am that you are in my house?” ES avoids his gaze and just says, “Goodnight.” She leaves.

Tan lies down on his bed. He picks up a book next to his head. The title reads, “Like we are living together.” In her room, ES thinks back to the time in the US with Tan and in Korea, and his confession. She sets her alarm even earlier. Her SNS account is updated again by Tan. Tan uploaded the pic of the book he was looking at. He has doodled on the book to change it from living to sleeping. It now reads, “Like we are sleeping together.” Tan also wrote, “Goodnight.”

The next morning at dawn, Tan is already at school by the time ES arrives. Seems he guessed she would do something like this to avoid him. He says he warned her that he would interfere actively in her life from now on. Tan pretends he doesn’t remember her asking him if he has nothing else to do. Tan notices her breakfast in her hand. He jokes that one might not be enough for her.  Tan gets up to leave, saying he is leaving now that he knows she is here. ES asks, “Did you think I wasn’t coming to school?” Tan replies, “I thought about a lot of things all night long.” He ruffles her hair. “Let’s see each other during breaks. And listen to your teachers.”

Yoon has come to see Won at the hotel because Won hasn’t been picking up the phone since last night. Won says he was meeting someone yesterday, and left his phone at home. Yoon tells him that Zeus Hotel CEO, YD’s dad, want to have breakfast with him. Won, “Are he and I friends? Asking the night before to have breakfast the next day? Tell him I gave up eating.” Yoon laughs.

Yoon suggest that Won meet YD’s dad now when he called first because Jeguk might have to ask to meet up with him later. Won learns that there is something is not working out with the JZ convention.

The board has a meeting. It seems Jeguk is building the JZ convention building in Jeju and one of its tenants, another hotel chain, is backing out, wanting to become investors instead. Won wants everyone to start looking into other hotels that might want to come into this deal with Jeguk, including Zeus Hotel. It seems they were included before. Yoon asks Won about the meal with Zeus today. Won says to say no; he wants to keep Zeus on a short leash.

At the end of meeting, Won confirms with Yoon that Dad has an examination today. Yoon asks, “Do you not want me to go?” Won snorts, “Right, like you wouldn’t.” Won leaves and Yoon asks to no one, “What is the genre of our relationship?”

Romantic comedy, Yoon. I want more of these two!!!

KA has a massive headache. ES’s mom is about to write to KA, “So stop downing alcohol.” She realizes this is inappropriate and tries to keep KA from seeing it. Pillow fight. Feathers in the air. The two ladies look crazy. But KA’s smile goes away as she realizes something. “I thought it was down, but it is chicken feathers.”

vlcsnap-2013-11-01-00h43m50s29 vlcsnap-2013-11-01-00h43m43s220

Bo Na is reciting a poem on the school broadcast system. ES runs into Tan in front of the club room. ES is here to find out if she got into the club, and Tan is here because he overheard her talking to HS about this club. Tan offers to help ES get into the club; he is close to HS. After making another joke, he asks her seriously, “Are you thinking about it?” ES just replies, “Log out of my SNS account.”

BN comes out of the room. She tries to run back in, but CY has come. While CY and BN flirt, ES tries to leave, and Tan tries to block her. ES is smarter than Tan, and she escapes, asking CY to help her study. She signals him silently to help her out of this situation. This leaves both BN and Tan pouting in jealousy.

BN confronts Tan, thinking Tan has come to see her. “Do you still have feelings for me? I am really happy with CY.” Tan laughs and teases her. “You and I were happy too. You liked me a lot.” BN corrects him- she didn’t like him that much. Just enough. Tan smiles. “You’re still cute, Lee Bo Na.” BN assures him that she doesn’t like him anymore. Tan replies that he likes her. BN exclaims she has a boyfriend. Tan asks, “Does that boyfriend know that I like you?” BN exclaims, “How can he know something like that! Please forget me!” She storms off.  Aww, it’s cute how loyal she is to CY.

vlcsnap-2013-11-01-00h57m37s112

CY asks if something is up between ES and Tan; it seems like ES is avoiding Tan. ES replies that there are many reasons to avoid Tan since she is the housemaid’s daughter and he is the son of the master of the house.  CY relays to ES that his dad asked about how she is doing in school, worried.

CY and ES talk about how in junior high school, everyone thought CY was rich because his dad worked for a conglomerate. CY: “I learned it here. That my dad works for a conglomerate, but my classmate’s dad runs the company.”

ES tells CY that she is looking for a chance to confess to the kids the truth about her status.  CY advises her to keep her secret; JY is transferring today.

ES runs to try to find JY, but he is already on his way out. “I didn’t even get to say thank you.” YS shows up with other students. She introduces herself to ES and wonders what ES is looking at. They see it is JY. Boy next to YS says he wishes all the society’s charity works leave the school.

vlcsnap-2013-11-01-01h11m23s179

At her locker, ES gets a call from “Don’t Answer.” She doesn’t pick up, but YD is right behind her and surprises her. He has seen what she saved him as in her phone. “Don’t answer what? My heart?” ES tells him to get out her way, but he teases/threatens her, calling her friend. She asks how they could be friends, so he asks, “Then do you want to be the flower?” When ES still tries to just leave, YD brings ups Tan. “Since you are acting this way, I’m curious what you saved Kim Tan as.”

This immediately stops ES from leaving. She doesn’t hand over the phone to YD, but she changes his contact name to “Choi Young Do.” YD notes, “Things don’t move forward without Kim Tan.”

YD notifies her that her name is on the bulletin board. ES is surprised and worried, and goes to see why. She sees she has gotten into the broadcast club. BN takes off the notice, wondering at the fuss that HS is making by putting up this kind of notice. Because of this, ES sees the note that she left for Tan in the US hanging here. Maybe Tan put up the broadcast notice himself to get ES’s attention?

vlcsnap-2013-11-01-01h21m16s221 vlcsnap-2013-11-01-01h21m21s16

She takes it to Tan and asks how he saw the note back in the US. Flashback. We originally thought Tan didn’t notice the note, but he did!

Tan asks, “What is that?” ES finds it fascinating that Tan saw this note.  He wonders how she can leave a note like that on the bulletin board, but not call him back when he asked her to so many times. ES replies that she didn’t think Tan would actually see the note. She finally asks why he wanted her to call.

Tan: “Where are you? Who are you with? When are you going? Can’t you not go? Don’t go. Stay with me a little longer. I miss you.”

vlcsnap-2013-11-01-01h25m03s186vlcsnap-2013-11-01-01h25m47s113

R watches from afar. HS comes up to her, noting she must be really mad. HS seems to be enjoying this little situation. He is sucking on medicine.

Tan says to ES that he didn’t come to Korea because of her, but she is one of the reasons. “You are thinking about it, right?” ES leaves, saying she has to go to class. Tan corrects her direction, because she is going the wrong way. HA!

HS offers to beat up Tan. R says she will be the one to beat up Tan.

HS makes a joke about his age, when R makes a remark about his eating the medicine. R laughs. HS says he won’t give her medicine even if she laughs. R asks, “Did I laugh?” HS: “Yes, Really pretty. He probably saw it too.” He nods his head toward Tan’s direction. Tan is looking at them. He yells at R to say there; he has something to say.

vlcsnap-2013-11-01-01h31m44s103 vlcsnap-2013-11-01-01h31m45s112

Tan tells R that he like ES. R replies angrily, “So what? Do you want permission? Do you want me to bug off? Do you think I didn’t know?” Tan replies, “I don’t need permission from you.”

R asks why Tan has turned back into a little kid. Even if he avoids R, he will end up with another rich girl and definitely not ES. Tan replies he has thought about this, but now he isn’t going to. He is going to do it all later, but for now, he is just going to just go ahead. Tan says he has a lot of obstacles to overcomes- “lot of mountains to climb over”- besides R, so he wants them to return to being friends, so he doesn’t have to climb over her too. R replies, “Just doing whatever you want first is very much like an eighteen-year-old thing to do. But you thought wrong.  You also thought I wouldn’t get hurt, but that was wrong too.” R walks away, trying hold back the tears.

Yoon has come to see Daddy Kim who is getting an examination. Everything looks good for now. Yoon notices the envelope. Dad wants Yoon to deal with HJ by the end of this month.

Dad knows that Yoon knows ES’s mom. They used to be neighbors, and ES’s parents use to run a food vendor. Yoon visited often because he like them because they were nice people.  KA also told Dad that ES’s family has some debt left over from the hospitals bills for ES” dad before he died. They are still paying it back now. Uh oh, Dad is going to use this as ammunition!

Yoon asks why Dad is helping ES. Dad says, “She will hear from at least a hundred people why she can’t be close to Tan.”

Yoon and E run into each other at Jeguk high. E has come to talk to JS about Tan hitting YD. Yoon is prickly towards E. He says he just heard clearly why he and E broke up. “I heard through a hundred people why you and I can’t be. Why do people like you talk through a hundred people instead of saying it directly? Isn’t that a bit cheap?” E replies, “I don’t know. There is always a butler at home.”

Yoon gets a call. E doesn’t believe it is from a woman, but Yoon answers, “Hello, Hyun Joo.”

On the other side of the line, HJ is telling Yoon that she is about to go to her tutoring job, and she will meet up with him later.

HS sees HJ eating at the convenience store, in a hurry to eat. So he texts her saying he is going to be late about twenty minutes. HJ relaxes a bit.

At his home, HS asks her what she ate for dinner, since she always seems so tired. He gets close to smell her breath. HJ is all business, and HS asks if he can call her anytime he has a question. She replies yes. HS looks on with HJ with interest, but HJ doesn’t even notice.

YD and his dad are at the judo studio again. YD bargains with his dad. YD has never won a match against his dad, so if he wins, his dad has to cancel the family picture photo shoot.

The match starts, but YD’s dad cheats by choking YD, and YD loses. YD complains that his dad cheated, and dad points out that he never gave YD any rules, only told him to win. There is no judge here but YD was trying to fight fairly. “People only remember the result. The result that you just lost.” What did teaches a son to cheat?!?!

At her cafe job, ES ignores YD’s call, but is surprised to see that YD is actually calling from the café. ES asks how he knew she was here. YD says he was surprised to learn while he was researching about her is that she became rich through her part-time jobs. ES gets scared, thinking he knows everything. ES: “What answer do you want from me?” YD replies, “You don’t have to say anything. I came because I was lonely.”

vlcsnap-2013-11-01-02h06m35s23

YD is telling ES that he canceled the charges he filed against JY when Tan shows up. YD sneers at ES. “This is cheating.”

Tan sits down in front of YD. He asks how YD knew this place. YD replies that the fact that he knows about this part-time job, means he knows about all her other part-time jobs. Tan tries to pretend this isn’t worrisome. He points out that YD also works in the kitchen of the hotel and odd jobs. YD replies, “Stop pretending you don’t understand what I mean.”

YD wants to know how Tan knows ES works here. Tan replies it is because he is always one step ahead of YD. YD warns, “So watch out for your back. I am one step behind you.”

Tan snaps back, “So you can hit be in the back of head with Cha Eun Sang? Don’t waste your energy.”

YD: “Why? Are you two dating?”

Tan: “Do we look good together?”

YD: “Why are you asking something so horrid like that?”

Tan affirms, “We look good together.”

YD’s smile disappears. Tan: “Don’t bother ES. I am warning you.”

YD replies, “You’re attacking straight on? That’s not a good strategy. Watch out for your knees. There are no rules on my mat.”

Other employee interrupts this testosterone fight. The two were too busy with each other to notice that ES left. She bought them drinks. ROLF.

Out they come, both sipping their drinks, but while Tan’s car is still there, YD’s motorcycle has been towed. Tan is absolutely thrilled.

Won waits outside of HJ’s home. He see HJ get out someone’s car. Livid, he rushes out of his car.  HJ is saying she will think about his (the car driver) offer. Won rushes up and wants to know whose car she is getting out of at this time of night. He is surprised to see Yoon and vice versa.

Won starts to say to  Yoon that he won’t make excuses, but Yoon says Won doesn’t need to since this is something he doesn’t need to know about. HJ starts to say that Yoon shouldn’t misunderstand; she and Won are not like that. But Won just pulls her closer and says to Yoon that he will see him tomorrow. Yoon just nods and leaves.

Won wants to know why she met Yoon. HJ finds out this way that Won didn’t know Yoon was meeting her.  HJ says she was giving Yoon advice about CY’s tutoring. Won wonders if HJ is the only tutor in this world.

HJ is worried that Daddy Kim will find out. Won replies, “Then you can just work and support me.” HJ retorts that she doesn’t earn a lot tutoring. Won: “So you don’t want to?” HJ: “Of course. Just go home.”

Won replies that he has nowhere to go. He came out of the house. “Can I stay over at your house?” HJ exclaims, “You really left?” Won: “Don’t yell. I live everyday with the feeling I am being yelled at.” HJ is still worrying over the fact that Won left his home. Won: “You will never say you will let me sleep over.”

Tan is about to knock on ES’s door when she comes out. She pretends that KA is coming to joke around with Tan, but KA actually does come, and Tan and ES hide in the closet. In the dark space and close proximity, we get what we can expect from two hormonal teenagers. Tan leans in for a kiss, but…..he stops. He steps back and casually says, “Mom left.”

ES opens her eyes. Embarrassed, she steps on his feet and leaves, leaving Tan wincing in pain.

Tan has followed ES to the wine cellar where she does her homework because she wants to let her mom sleep. Tan asks why ES just ran away before. Because of YD? ES jabs, “Because of you.”

Tan asks what the two talked about. ES replies, “Something strange.” She tells him that YD said he was lonely. “He did really look lonely.” Tan, jealous, exclaims, “So you talked to him, met his gaze, and all that?!” ES denies this but Tan asks then how YD knows all about her part-time jobs. ES replies, “How can I explain? I found that out too just then.”

It dawns on Tan. He realizes that YD is not bothering ES anymore because he wants to annoy Tan but because YD wants to see ES.

YD lies on the sofa thinking about ES and all his interactions with her. MS asks what he is thinking about. Young quietly replies, “Cha Eun Sang.” MS asks why YD would be thinking about her? YD replies, ” Exactly. I am also thinking about why I am thinking about that upstart.”

Next day. YD and R are dressed up for the family picture. Before they can start shooting, however, YD smiles. A woman shows up. Woman says hi to YD’s dad, calling him oppa. YD says hi to the woman, calling her ahjumma. He also spills the beans on how he saw her a week before at their hotel to see his dad. E is mad, saying she can’t smile for pictures anymore. E leaves. R follows, smiling. YD says to his dad, “You said even cheating was part of the game. The important thing is the result. Win in any way possible. Now people will only remember I just won.”

R says she owes YD now. YD replies she can pay him back next time, but for now, she needs to give him want he wants. He wants ES’s re-entry card that R took from ES on the plane before. R wonders why he wants this information, but YD replies that she doesn’t need to know.

Before YD leaves, however, R tells him that Tan said he likes ES. “He confessed to me. Can you take care of that?” YD asks what she will do in return. He might ask for something she can’t give. R says he can tell her after he takes care of this.

Lunchtime. Outside at school, ES is listening to music through her earphones, and Tan scares her. She hits him, and he whines that it really hurts. It seems it was just an excuse for lots of cute touching. ES asks him to stop surprising her. Tan points out she just didn’t notice he was following her because of her earphones. ES wonders why he was following her. Tan replies it is because she won’t let him talk to her at home. ES snaps back, “That’s not the only thing you try to do.” Heh, awkward silence. Tan smiles. “Are we going to just talk about that freely now?” ES gets up, embarrassed. She wants him to come in 5 minutes after her. The two bicker cutely about how ES has not bought food for Tan yet like she promised.

Cafeteria. YD takes ES’s plate from her and places it on his table. ES: “What are you doing?” Young Do replies, “What do you think? Because I want to eat with you.”

ES remembers back to what happened to JY sitting with YD last time in the cafeteria. She gets scared, thinking this is going to happen to her. She doesn’t want to, but YD’s sidekick sits her down.

BN and YS watch this. YS guess that ES is YD’s next target, but wonders why? Isn’t ES rich? BN looks for CY or Tan, asking why they aren’t coming. Aww, is she worried about ES?

Young Do eats, but ES just sits there, shaking. ES asks what it means for her to sit here. YD replies that is is nothing. He is just comfortable in this seat. ES tells Young Do to stop this if he is using her to make Tan angry. She has nothing to do with Tan. YD smiles and replies, “Really? I don’t have anything to do with him either.”

Tan comes in and sees YD and ES. It looks like to him that YD is bullying ES. His face grows hard, and he walks over to the table. “What are you doing?” YD: “We are eating. Tan yells, “Get up!” ES gets up. YD throws down his fork and gets up too. To Tan: “What is this meal etiquette? Do I have to teach you manners in front of all these people?”

Tan pushes his anger down and  says ES had previous appointment with him. He grabs ES and is walking away with her when YD trips ES. She falls, and food gets all over her shirt. Tan gets mad and grabs YD by the collar. ES begs him to stop. “I am the one that fell.”

YD: “You’ve let your guard down because I have been nice to you these days.” Tan: “I’m going to kill you.” YD: “Instead of you, I made ES get on her knees. Isn’t it beyond your expectations?” Tan is about to punch YD, but ES stops Tan. She pleads for Tan to take her out of here.  Tan lets go of YD and takes ES out of there, walking right past R.

R hands ES’s card to YD but not before she says, ” You made ES get on her knees, but you gave her wrists to Tan.”

ES cries on the roof, with Tan standing far behind her. Tan asks if she was hurt. ES replies no. Tan wants to check, but ES doesn’t want him to come. He’ll get dirty. Tan comes anyway and tells her to stay still. He is checking her hands when ES gets a call. It is from YD. ES is scared. Tan is about to take the phone from her, but ES tells him not too. She wants to pick up because ignoring YD doesn’t work. “He knows I am not rich. He knows everything!” Tan: “It’s okay even if he knows. Don’t answer.” ES: “How could it be okay? Choi Young Do knows everything.” Tan warns her again to not pick up. ES picks up the call and says, “hello,” but Tan stops her from saying more by kissing her.

Comment:

Honestly, I don’t get why Young Do likes Eun Sang. He first really saw her at the convenience store when she was sleeping. She was this strange and unusual thing, so I can see how he can become curious about her. Before he can develop any separate feelings towards her, however, he finds out that she has something to do with Tan, and in his anger towards Tan, ES becomes something like a toy to him. But now he seems to have genuine interest in her, when he isn’t blinded by his hatred of Tan, but I don’t understand why Eun Sang. I get he is lonely, but for now it just seems he just came to like her because she was this thing in front of his eyes every time he saw Tan. I don’t know…Eun Sang hasn’t really done anything in front of him that I see as compelling. She’s mostly been half-asleep or scared in front of him. Please, I invite your comments below. Why do you guys think Young Do likes Eun Sang?

In comparison, I can see why Tan likes Eun Sang. He thinks she is cute and pretty. He is sexually attracted to her. He saw her being abandoned by her sister. She saw him being abandoned by his brother. Eun Sang was his companion for that very brief time in his house, sharing a sandwich and home with him.

Can we assume after this episode that Won really likes Hyun Joo, and has been pursuing her all this time, but Hyun Joo just keeps pushing him away? He becomes a little kid in front of her, complaining that he is sick and or doesn’t have a place to live. She is the only person he lets his guard down against. Unfortunately, he seems to be unaware of his dad’s intentions, and seems unprepared to protect Hyun Joo against his dad.

Hyo Shin showing interest in Hyun Joo was sort of unexpected, but then again, Hyo Shin seems interested in everyone. What a playboy. I like his contrast to Myung Soo; both are from prestigious lawyer-y families, but MS doesn’t care and goes out to party, while HS cares too much and is struggling to live up to all expectations.

There was a lot more cute and comedy this episode, between KA and ES’s mom, and Tan and ES. There is also a significant amount of cute between Won and Yoon, one of my favorite pairings in this drama. Nothing Won does fazes Yoon, who is always ready with an answer or comeback. Won is wary of Yoon because Yoon reports to his dad, but he also knows Yoon is the only one who is brave and smart enough to challenge him. Yoon frustrates Won, but Yoon might be the only friend Won has in this world.

    These 2 episodes were really great, they advanced the story, KT confessed, YD is getting more and more interested in ES, the triangle is taking a full form, even though I never liked love triangles in dramas I am interested in seeing how this will play out!

    I know there are people cheering for YD and ES but I am almost positive nothing will happen between them, at least I’m talking about the feelings of ES, she will never love him, she already fell for KT, their relationship is way stronger and more meaningful, she will eventually choose him but I hope that ES will also be the reason of him being cured in the inside, maybe she’ll even be the reason KT and YD make the peaces, we’ll see!

    • exactly,maybe ES will make him change his awful attitude,but she will not be interested in him in a romantic way.in the end I see them being friends,nothing more.and yes,maybe she will help Tan and YD to be friends again.we will see,there is a lot more to happen.

        Yes, Alina 🙂 me and you have similar opinions on the matter 🙂 I respect everyones opinion and I really try to keep an open mind about how things will play out in the next episodes but like I said the way I see it ES will never love YD back, she will eventually be less scared of him because YD will open up to her and she will be able to understand him more but KT will be the ones she chooses and I’m okay with that cause I think KT deserves her more than YD!

  2. When they first mentioned Choi Young Do’s name, I thought I heard Choi Young’s name. I missed him and Faith. And I have just started re-watching it again.

    i agree, young do liking eun sang seems random. like some convenient add on to a kdrama mandatory love triangle.
    whats on the customs declaration card anyway? eun sang’s home address? which is kim tans address?? so does Rachel know that shes living there as a maid??but in the previous episode it seems that rachel is under the impression that eun sang was newly rich, back when she was at the spa throwing dollar bills onto the table..
    kim tans real mom and eunsangs moms hilarious! should have more of those scenes . sometimes she doesnt seem to bad to eunsang and her mom, but other times shes a bitch

    i like the love triangle sub plot btwn hyun joo and the boy she tutors with won. hyun joo and that boy seem to have more chemistry between them than eunsang and tan! eunsang just seems tired and annoyed everytime she sees tan.
    tan reli needs to have some sorta character development imho. he doesnt actually do much, apart from bothering eun sang or showing up at his brothers place. even young do has more character development

    November 1, 2013

      It won’t be Kim Tan’s address but her old address. She did not know her mom moved.

    Thank you for your recap.

    I love the way you translate the show objectively. Can I just vent for a minute ?? I used to go to the other big site or recaps and news called drama beans . Recently I find that there are so many haters in that blog of this show. I find the writers bias on this show., its frustrating,,I feel that they are putting the show down too much geezzz making me mad because I LOVE THIS SHOW!! I’m not a big fan of the actors here but hey I’m totally entertained with the characters,,

    I agree that the show has some flaws but hey it’s crazy entertaining and realistic with high school set up. But I think they are being too critical and not seeing the cute moments of this show.

    Thank you Joonie!! It’s great finding you!! I’ll try to cut my bad habit of always checking the other site from now on. Keep up your great job of re-telling us the story. I’m loving you’re site!!

    Cannot wait for next Wednesday and Thursday !!

      I have the same sentiments with the site you mention. they just recap the drama just to criticize it. Like you said, the drama has some flaws but I didn’t mind it because it keeps me entertain and I like the show.

      I totally agree with you… I also went to the site u mentioned… I must say the people who wrote the recap on that site have an awful opinions about this drama… I don’t know why they’re writing the recaps since they don’t enjoy the drama… They really make me mad so I’m not checking that idiotic site anymore… Besides they can’t post the recaps very quickly like joonni does…

      @Marlene, the haters on the 2nd site you mentioned are more critical. They actually put LMH and PSH on the firing squad. Basically, the zone there is highly acidic. The haters constantly compare with Secret which IS of completely different genre, saying how good the actors are; not forgetting that the ones in Secret are veteran actors in the first place and they choose not to see that BUT continued disparaging Heirs and the OTP. my 2cents. Feeling better now after unloading. this site here is friendly zone for sure. 😀

        oh woww!1 Thank you guys for your great insight with how i feel with the other site.Youguys are right about how they compare The Heirs to Secret… It just doesn’t make sense at all to me when they decided not to even recap that drama . That site is sooo toxic! not friendly at all and I feel like most the commenters are just few people with different names.. they all hate this drama and are nit picking with pretty much everything.

        most of them are big fan of the Future Choice drama with EYH… they hate the fact that its not getting a good rating … so so so annoying!!

        Anyways thank you Joonni!!! I’m so glad I found you… so positive and refreshing as well as objective with your recaps. Please be well and keep up the good job!!

        Thanks pecegee, willow and Ccue !!
        lets look forward to more The Heirs episodes and have fun!!

          I too hv the same opinion on those 2 sites..i just avoid them now..i dont understand why intelligent ppl keep commenting on smtg they supposedly hate? If u hate it shouldnt u just NOT watch or read re-caps??? Just shows that they leave harsh comments just for fun

          November 3, 2013

            Hey Hohurm, I think they actually luv the show too much to admit but had to mask it up with harsh comments and still continue to watch it despite all their grievances. believe they are using reverse psychology!! Only kidding! 😀 My addiction is on over-drive right now 😦 Is it Wed yet? 🙂

          hey marlene, those haters can bash and kick stones for all they want ‘cos we are on this bandwagon, Heirs till the end of ep 20 with thanks to none other than Joonni dear. Here’s counting down with less than 45 hours to air time… yippee!!! 🙂

          • Marlene #

            Wahh it’s more than 48 hours for me!! Can’t wait!!
            Love love this show, it’s a good call from LMH to do the heirs since time will come that he won’t be able to do student roles anymore . I wishthatbteh ratings will increase a bit but its not the kind of show that the adjusshi and ajummahs in Korea would watch :)))
            I have never commented so much in any dramas before :)) I’m actually having fun!!

            The Heirs fighting!!!

            • peacegee #

              the adjusshis and adjummahs prefer makjang as compared to high school drama. I do think that is fairing quite well but could be better due to the OTP A-lister + huge cast and the hype. AGD [KES’s previous] had the 20% mark for some episodes not forgetting they had big guns in the leads to justify. Sincerely hope that Heirs will also justify with higher ratings! time to put in a prayer or 2!! 🙂

                Hey, at least ppl are talking about Heirs, right?? Shows how popular it is. Those haters are just trying to find faults to bring down Heirs. They hated it even before it airs

                November 5, 2013
  5. This drama is amazing. Many people compare it to boys before flowers, but I think that it is very different. I love the chemistry between kim tan and eun sang. Young do probably likes eun sang because of her character, but I honestly don’t get why he likes her a lot. I have waited for this drama since april, but it has reached beyond my expectations. One of the best dramas.

    Jooni! I found out something about the Kiss on the rooftop. on the from Eun Sang’s own feed back about it.

    Here it is:

    Park Shin Hye said, “I’m glad that the scene which marks a change in the relationship between Kim Tan and Cha Eun Sang was filmed nicely. I hope viewers will look forward to how Cha Eun Sang overcomes all her problems at Jeguk High School one after the other.” Catch the next episode this Wednesday.

    From her confirmation I think its a “Glorious Yes! ” to KT if possible would you like to like me straight from the heart starting now? What do you think? hmmm ! I’m so excited I wishing and dreaming that Eun Sang kissed KT back on that roof top. Pure heaven on earth, and perfect moment of love for them both! 🙂 Who is with me on this? Cause I will keep on dreaming of it till Wednesday! Eun Sang and Kim Tan Keep Fighting! 🙂

      Me me me!! Totally with you there! ES is scared shit with the thought of falling in love with a rich son like KT but we know that KT is already in ES heart since Hollywood!,

      More more of the Heirs!!

      November 1, 2013
      • I agree too!!! she tries to keep her distance from him exactly because she does like him back,but she thinks she doesn’t fit in his world.and on top of that,he has a fiance already,even if he doesn’t care about her.so is normal for her to keep her distance and not confess what she really feels.but I like them together so much,I can’t wait to see them showing their love for each other openly,with no reticence or fear whatsoever.

      I am with you all the way! Love KT and ES, I am very curious to see what is the reason she will go on his room, will she accept him or no, it looks like a sad scene so I’m a bit scared, oh well, we’ll have to wait and see 🙂 KT and ES FIGHTING!!!!

    I sometimes think that YD is a better boyfriend choice than Kim Tan…
    — First because YD is brave enough to fight his dad and do whatever the hell he wants.
    Which means if he dates ES, his father can’t deny their relationship cause YD is the type of son that can win against his dad (not win in judo but you know what i mean)

    — and he’s the only child, which mean he doesn’t have any siblings who will go like “your girlfriend is this, that ,blabla”

    But so far, I haven’t see anything that shows KT is brave enough to fight against his dad.

    [ I think it would be good to have a guy like YD to like you.. i mean most people say that girls like bad boys that can be good just for her.. (and guys wants a Good girl that can be bad just for him 😉 ]

    But… doesn’t KT use to be worse than YD? IDK i’m torn. omg i know what the writer is trying to do..

    i wanted to say that KT have a bro, a mom and a dad that can go against his relationship but thinking bout it, he seems brave enough to wins against his mom. and his bro likes a poor girl too so he can’t say anything on KT.

    Ok so YD and KT is in the same position except KT probably is a bit more scared towards his dad than YD.

    hmm.. now after writing this out… I think there’s no “better boyfriend” choice…

    but wait….

    KT’s mom can scold her and insult ES… while YD doesnt have a mom so if ES is YD’s gf, her life as a girlfriend would be easier…

    It hurts when your “mom in law” hates you or esp insult you because of ur status.

    November 1, 2013
    • I don’t really agree with the fact that Tan’s not brave enough to fight his dad,I don’t see him being scared of him.when the time will come,I think he will be brave enough to fight for what he wants,in this case ES.actually I see YD to be more scared of his father than Tan,even if it doesn’t look like that.and not to say he’s abusive with YD,who’s his son,just imagine how will he act toward a possibly poor girlfriend of his son.he’s more dangerous and scary than Tan’s family.and the fact YD doesn’t have a mom and Tan has,is not that important,Tan’s more than capable to put his mom in her place if it will be needed.so is Tan all the way.

    Jooni! I went to the FB profile of heirs and saw the scene where Eun Sang is with KT. Remember the scene where KT got bruise’s face from fighting with YD. Maybe its really a “Yes!” cause they won’t be together on that scene if Eun Sang didn’t kissed back Kim Tan. And Why was Kim Tan waiting outside his own home bruised from the fight? Did he just let Eun Sang get in first then he waits out side so everyone wouldn’t know that she was with him while the fight is going on? Hmmmm! I’m I dreaming to much of Wednesday episode? Oh I do wish them both the best of happiness cause the both “Zing!” together. I mean in the cartoon vampire movie its says ” You can only Zing once in your life time!” I do hope both of them the best. Keep the positive vibes for Eun Sang And Kim Tan! 🙂

    Jooni! The song that’s playing on the first scene where Eun Sang and YD met in the cafe was from FM Static <<< Take Me As I AM is it just a coincidence? Look at the Lyrics:

    "Take Me As I Am"

    This time I finally see the
    Reason why, I can't do this
    Alone, it took some time and concentration,
    To believe it, this I know

    I need to build my faith sometimes,
    But I am so comfortable in line,
    I'm up, there's no more time,
    To try to mess with this design

    Tonight's complete,
    Everyone's asleep,
    And I wanna say these words to you,
    I'll be Your hands, take me as I am,
    I just wanna be with You

    Take me as I am, 'cause I'm goin',
    I was too scared to start,
    And now I'm too scared to let go
    Take me as I am, 'cause I'm Growin',
    But it's so hard to tell when I'm not used to this so

    I lift my voice to sing out,
    Let the sound of my heart ring out,
    These hands aren't holdin' me down,
    Never again will I be without

    I need to build my faith sometimes,
    But I am so comfortable in line,
    I'm up, there's no more time,
    To try to mess with this design

    Tonight's complete, Everyone's asleep,
    And I wanna say these words to you,
    I'll be Your hands, take me as I am,
    I just wanna be with You

    Take me as I am, 'cause I'm goin',
    I was too scared to start,
    And now I'm too scared to let go
    Take me as I am, 'cause I'm growin',
    But it's so hard to tell when I'm not used to this so

    He said he was lonely so why is he there? I He should me in the place where he and MS usually meet up to hang out and just themselves instead he went to Eun Sang's place. What made him went there instead of somewhere else is beyond us now? Does he wants to be friends with Eun Sang even if he knows KT will be always ahead of him? Silly me right? But isn't this song best describe how he feels while he and Eun Sang is exchanging chats?

    I have been wondering the same – how did Young Do come to be this interested in Eun Sang? While it would be good to develop their relationship a bit more (and not just the convenience store scene) before Young Do realised her connection to KT, perhaps like KT, it was a pure physical attraction and curiosity initially (at the convenience store); her strong character and ability to infuriate Rachel the way he can (outside the uniform store) also intrigued him. In addition to finding out about her being the delivery girl (also the same delivery girl who stood up to those guys at the bike workshop during their first scene together), everything about her probably seemed so genuine and different from the other rich, spoilt kids around him. I’m not sure whether Young Do saw her as being fearful, because he was impressed by her gutsy nature a few times (even though she was actually really scared of him). All these feelings didn’t really have time to develop slowly before KT came into the picture, and basically heightened all these feelings, especially due to competitiveness as well. The writer probably wants us to be as confused as they are – whether Young Do really likes Eun Sang or just a sense of competitiveness towards KT. I would say Young Do is interested in Eun Sang even without KT in the picture, but with KT wanting the same girl, it probably sped up the process of developing such interest.

    I hope Eun Sang can be a little kinder to Young Do soon, rather than being scared of him, especially since she took notice when Young Do said he was lonely. I could see that he totally regretted tripping Eun Sang in a bid to stop her from leaving with KT. Like KT, he probably craves the warmth that Eun Sang sometimes gives either just by her presence or her being real and genuine towards her feelings. While Eun Sang builds a wall to block people out, these rich kids are so aggressive I feel like they have barbed wires keeping people out of their heart.

    November 1, 2013
    • why should ES be a little kinder with YD,when all he’s doing is to be aggressive with her and other people too?he didn’t looked regretfully for tripping her,in fact he was pissed because Tan took her from there.you don’t make the girl you like fall just because you’re pissed she’s leaving with someone else.he doesn’t deserve her and I hope he won’t get her.maybe i’m harsh,but that’s how I feel.

      • Tastier #

        I agree. She could have gotten seriously hurt. I also didn’t see him look like he regretted his behavior. He was just irritated after Rachel told him he didn’t do it right. ES should stop letting him bully her. I have always understood why she has been trying to fly under the radar and not make YD mad but this incident in the cafeteria was the last straw. He didn’t care that he tripped her, he only thought of his own ego. I am hoping she is given her spunkiness back. We know she can take care of herself. We saw it clearly in the first few episodes. So did YD and KT.

        November 1, 2013
    • I don’t like the way YD expressed his love toward ES..YD has “naughty boy” image for ES so she can’t difference YD’s real meaning (exp while YD asked to take a lunch with ES and ES thought he might bully her)..but YD’s father is also ” a bad boy”..hope ES can make YD become “kind man” ^^

      So, what i am gonna say is Choi Young Do needs more cute scenes with Eun Sang! ^^

      November 1, 2013
      • Anusha #

        I too would love to see some Eun Sang and YD scenes. Right now YD’s actions are very contradictory. But I think since he has been a bully all his life and knows only how to order or threaten people, he doesnt know to handle someone like Eun Sang, whom he actually just wants to get to know. If his transformation had been instant, there wont be any story. I think in the upcoming episodes, YD wll change his behaviour and ES will see the nicer side to him.

        Kim Tan on the other hand has already transformed, so its easy for ES to like a nice guy like him…

        November 2, 2013
        • Agreeeeee! more YD and ES scenes!

      Well, I don’t think YD and ES will end up together either, but by showing so much of YD’s relationship with his Dad, I do think the writer wants us to see YD in more than one dimension of a bully. I was hoping ES will eventually see the softer side of YD and also showing him that his world does not need to be as warped as his Dad.

      In fact, I feel that YD wanted to show ES the softer side of him (the scene when he told ES he dropped the charges, he wanted to say something else…and when he wanted ES to eat with him in the cafeteria) but KT always appears at that point and the turn of events made it such that YD became the bad guy again. His methods are absurd, I agree, but with his values being taught by his Dad, I’m not surprised if that’s the only way he knows how to behave. He was taught to believe only the strong will survive, and by that only those with power and money have the right to everything. Once he understands that he can’t win ES’ heart by brute force, money and power, I’m hoping he would eventually realise there’s a bigger world out there than the one his Dad trapped him in.

    Hey Joonni thanks for lovely detailed Recap. am so glad that u take your time to write it so amazingly that people like me who have to watch it with subs get the clear view of a particular scene. Now am gonna drop my two cents here. I completely agree with you that YD liking Eu is just out of blue but i think he is more interested in her life thanks to Tan. He first saw her in that bike shop and he kind of was a fan of her bravery act where those two workers were trying to make her uncomfortable and she called de cops for help. Then he got the shock of his life that the same girl is somehow connected to Tan’s life. Also when she took on Rachel at the uniform shop so i guess his is attracted to her confident attitude which she rarely portrays.
    Coming to the most talked and loved scene The kissing one I think it will lead to the oozing out of emotions that are forced to stay inside. Meaning I completely agree on the part with some members here that Eu has already giver her heart to Tan. will write more once i get home lol

    I think he sees something in Eun Sang that he hasnt seen in people for a long time. He’s surrounded by spoiled, rich, snobby teenagers, and Eun Sang is different. She doesn’t react to him the way other girls do, and she seems like a challenge to him.

    Its obvious that ES will end up with Kim Tan.. theres no two ways about that.. and since I like Lee Min Ho, I dont really have an issue with that. But am loving the Young Do – ES storyline…

    Maybe its the fact that ES doesnt go about with her nose in the air or wears too much make up or needs a high end car to to go from place to place.. Theres a randomness and a slight mystery about her that makes Young Do want to know know more about her. And I think Young Do is physically attracted to ES too..

    However, somtimes I get the feeling that Young Do is also attracted/ intereted in Rachael..

  14. In my opinion, YD start to like ES because she has changed his heart and make him become a flower ^^

    – He has been curious about the sleeping girl that he saw in front of supermarket and made him to protect her from the noisy child ^^

    – He has been curious about the brave girl that take out R’s name tag ^^

    – He started to take a play with ES as he think that ES has relationship with KT ^^

    – He confused because ES known as “new money” but she did part time job..is she making a lie? ^^

    – Then he tested ES by order Joon Young to make her come to the hotel herself

    – So, his heart has changed because of ES’s kind heart for Joon Young although she couldn;t not hide her feeling that she was afraid of YD too ^^

    Is it right? ^^

    YD has an evil agenda in making life miserable to KT and ES. A man who cherish someone he adores and respected won’t ever hurt or even see his beloved get hurt. KT saw it first hand that ES was shaking in fear of being bullied and oppressed by YD. So He asked with politeness first for ES to get up and come with him. But since ES don’t want to make matter worse ES stayed in her seat. But when KT got more mad at her for staying in fear rather than be with him in comfort of rescue, she snap out of the senses and finally did the right move to go with KT. So YD got more upset cause he felt embarrassed by KT aggressive move to rescue ES.

    We never saw him felt regret his actions, he even said he got his revenge from KT attack to him by making ES down on her knees. This was a very heartless move of him in front of KT and ES. That’s why KT said he is going to kill him but ES calmed him down cause if he caused further injury to YD and it reached the chair woman both of them will be in trouble. KT will be asked to be transfer to another school to avoid being in the eye of the elite children of society and further embarrassed the family. While on ES said She will be further exiled from his home which is the only safe place for them to be together.

    YD seems to want something from Rachel which Rachel can’t give freely to him. Is it her virginity? We can only speculate for now. Cause when he said trust me he will get more hurt when he lost someone which was once his, does he means he will further bully ES in fear to stay away from KT or play with her heart by acting he loves her more than KT can love and protect her from his families wicked prejudice to all social care group.

    What made him call ES after the incident? Does he wants to further bully ES by black mailing her about the document he got from Rachel? Or Warn her that if she continue to be involved with KT he will do his best to make her realize that KT and her won’t to withstand his evil ways in and out of the school cause he knows a lot of things about her. With Rachel’s promise of giving him whatever he wants from her and his heart broken by KT and ES, he will do anything to make them miserable and forget they ever knew each other.

    KT kissed ES to stop her from shaking in fear and cause her more anguish on that right moment when she is most vulnerable. The kiss was the focal point of the story in making her realize she will never be alone and in the dark radar of YD, R, the wolf pack elite students who hates social care group and His parents who only wants him to get involved with their own kind of high class standards in the society.

    Will ES return back to kiss him? We hope so! Cause we all know she deserve’s to be with KT ever since they met each other in the restaurant outside the beach where KT enjoys surfing with friends.

      i thought the same too, does YD wants rachel’s virginity? i was watching this with my mom and she thought the same thing?

    Just a thought.. in dramas like Boys over flowers and You’re beautiful, its the bad/ mean guy, like Tae Kyung and Gu Ju Pyo who transform and get the girl, while the second male lead, like Shin Woo who is actually sweet to her from the begining and actually rescues her alot who ends up being alone. Here its the sweet guy, KT who gets the girl. Thats how Heirs is different from other dramas..

    November 2, 2013

      KT is sweet guy to Es only, He is a cold guy in front of another people in school especially to R. Shin Woo is CALM guy not same as KT .hehe ^^

  17. Little kids in kindergarten often push others when their affection is not returned. When two kids have a toy they both want, they fight for it even if they know they may break it in the process. As long as the other does not have it in the end.

    Does that tell us more about YD?

    November 2, 2013
    • Anusha #

      Excellent point!! Thank you for defending YD…So many ppl are just not getting him…He is not exactly the villain.. Hes just a messed up kid and hes taking his frustration on the world…

      Am sure he’ll turn around soon…I love how he told ES ‘ if you sleep like this anywhere, I feel like protecting you’!! You dont need more than that to know how YD truly feels about ES…and that he would never intentionally harm her…

      November 2, 2013
      • I don’t agree.if he would never intentionally harm her,then why did he make her fall?? you can’t say that wasn’t done intentionally.and the excuse that he did that because of Tan doesn’t stand up.a boy should never hurt a girl physically or in any other way, for any reason.doesn’t matter if he’s messed up,frustrated and god knows what else.the theory with the 2 kids and the toy that they both want is nice,but it doesn’t stand up either.none of them is a little boy anymore,Tan did grow up,he’s pretty mature for his age,YD is….well ,YD.I wish people stop to make excuses for his horrible behavior ,his dad’s awful,I agree,but that doesn’t give him the right to do what he’s doing .

        November 2, 2013
        • Exactly. KT may be mature, but YD is a man who think little boy’s thoughts.

          Kids are competitive in an immature way. If KT has one, YD will want one just like it, if not bigger or better. If he can’t have the raggedy doll, he’ll break it so no one can have it. Little boys’ fist fight upcoming in ep 9. And hopefully, YD will grow up soon. Because I don’t want him to break anything or anyone. That’s just my observation of kids and k-drama.

          That’s why YD has the boyish charm, in a wicked kind of way.

          November 3, 2013
      • Agreeeeeee! I guess he made her fall physically is just him telling her subtlely that he is going to make her fall for him. Hahaha mannn we are reading this way too much.

        November 2, 2013

    YD is a lonely man cause he can’t get enough love from His father who only thinks of business and womanizing as a life long agenda. He listens to him but with prejudice that YD will not amount to anything in life unlike him. He wants to let YD learn the basics of leadership yet he himself can’t be a father first to him. If only he spends enough time being with him not in judo fights or social gatherings, maybe YD will learn to understand the process of truly being a man of integrity, honor, and grace.

    He want to teach KT the etiquette of eating yet he didn’t even respected ES choice in not joining him for lunch cause she knows that KT is arriving within minutes of her picking up her lunch. Such a selfish bully. That’s who he is, he wants only to torment ES on that particular moment cause he knows that KT will join her for lunch.

    If KT was the one who initiated the system of classes in the who school, YD is not giving him the crown back that easy cause it would make him more alone with no one who cares if he exist at all in school where the only place he can find solace by being the king of evil of Jeguk High among his oppressive wolf pack who only cares about themselves like him.

    Without his social figure of evil ways in Jeguk High, he got nothing to do and no where to belong.

      I agree with every single word you wrote!

      I can’t believe my eyes when people justify YD actions with baseless and vain reasons, so what if he’s hurt, does that give him the right to bully the week and the poor? How can a guy that likes a girl put her in a position he did with ES, make her trip and fall, seeing the fear in her eyes and not making a little bit an effort to make that go away, yes, I know he didn’t spur her doing part time jobs but that’s just because he will use that against her.

      For now, to me YD is absolutely horrendous and I’ve said this many times here and when discussing it with my friends too, his good looks are not going to make me blind for his terrible actions, I don’t see any genuine care from him towards ES, I don’t understand why is he so interested in her, I just don’t buy that he really likes her, not yet, maybe in the next episodes when he opens up and lets his guard down I’ll be more easy on him, we’ll see!

      About one thing I am absolutely sure though, ES will never love him back, she will eventually be less scared of him because she will see his other side and notice that he’s not all bad but she already fell for KT, it will be a hard road for them but like the song “two people” says when they have a scene “Even though at times this road might seem too far and tears fall in sadness,Until the day everything becomes memories, We, two people, will be each other’s resting place”, I think this is the message of their love, at least in my opinion, that no matter how hard is to bear the crown you’ve been destined to wear, no matter how big is the difference between their social life status and how big of a gap there is between them, still in then both of them are and will be each others resting place and face together all the difficulties ahead of them, it won’t be easy but it will be worth it!

    This question is for Jooni and the rest of all active viewers in here, In the screen shot where KT was in front of Won, do we have to assume he is asking his brother for an advice in how to confront His father about the fight he had with YD and his new relationship with ES if indeed ES acknowledge his liking to him? Any feedback will greatly appreciated.

    Love, love, love this drama!!! I was a little wary at first but then KT, ES, YD hooked me in. It’s funny that all of them have one thing in common, they’ve got FAMILY ISSUES!:) and the one thing they are all longing for, is the one person that will be their greatest support…one that will always be there when things go awry or when things are going well. Despite what KT & ES are facing from others, they still get to see each other at home. On the other hand YD doesn’t have that…he has his hang out place with MS, but it’s not the same. When he goes to see YD at her work and says that he was lonely, my heart broke, because he let her for a brief moment see that sadness part of him. He wants what KT & ES have, an unspoken feeling for each other. Just by looking at the other person or having “bickering” harmless exchanges, anyone can tell that they are both in for each other! Looking forward to see how everything unfolds, hopefully, the writers won’t mess up with the storyline like some dramas that start out strong and then you wonder what happened at the end 🙂 just saying….KT & ES FIGHTING!!

    I’m really enjoying this drama but I’ve realised something rather disturbing about the main characters in it. Kim Tan is really every bit as abusive as Young do. It’s just that his is a passive aggressive abuse, that is predatory and obsessive rather than violent.

    To threaten ES with eviction and being forced to leave school unless she dates him, all the while knowing that in doing so, she is putting herself at such risk is beyond selfish, it’s downright cruel.

    And he’s so open about invading her boundaries in every way, logging into her facebook and refusing to let her be alone in the house or at school. Yeah I know LMH is a hottie and everyone dreams about being his love interest, but imagine the same behaviour if it was by some ordinary or ugly looking guy… not so cute anymore, eh? And in fact downright creepy.

    I do have to give it to the writer and to the actors, though because it’s still very fascinating to watch, but it’s not my idea of romance. Any woman whose been through anything like ES’s experience will tell you that it’s pretty horrible.

    What the writer is doing really well, is tying KT’s behaviour into a family dynamic, because we see the same obsessive passive aggressive behaviour in Won.
    Hyun Joo, is trying to escape him as best she can, and he is refusing to let her go. In fact I doubt he ever will let her go, so the chairman will have a fight on his hands.

    For both brothers, it can’t be a coincidence that they’ve both fallen for warm, loving but socially inferior and utterly powerless girls who can’t get away from them no matter how hard they try.
    I think that’s the key, both Tan and Won clearly need to have power and control over the women they love because of their rejection and abandonment issues.

    November 2, 2013

      I actually thought about this too! Don’t get me wrong I am all for KT and ES being together but I also try to keep and open mind and be objective on the matter!

      You are right, KT is very persistent on what he wants especially regarding ES, he won’t take no for an answer but all of this is because he sees the “green light” in her eyes, I mean he sees that ES likes him too but is just too scared of being with him because of her inferiority complex and difference of social status! I think that if he saw that she truly is not interested in him he wouldn’t be so persistent about it! I agree that KT is more passive aggressive and not like YD who applies violence instead but still what YD does is worse in my opinion, cause he sees that ES is scared of him and instead of changing that he pushes her away more!

      We’ll see what happens next I guess, how this so much talked about “love triangle” will end!

    When YD say he wants something from Rachel that she might can’t give, can it be her virginity? someone thought the same thing as me in the comments above

    November 2, 2013
    • MJUNE #

      I did thought about it, babyboo cause YD hates R attitude and character as a woman. So the only thing he can ever want from her is for her to give up the most precious thing she can ever give him the satisfaction of it. I do hope, I’m wrong cause the only thing she really did was to love KT. She was so frustrated to find out that she wasn’t really wanted ever since they got engaged and she’s venting all her anger to Eun Sang.

      November 2, 2013
      • I don’t think R really loves Tan, she ‘s just pissed because he likes and cares about ES.she can’t understand why he choose someone like ES over her.her big ego can’t accept that.in her eyes ES is inferior to her,so she thinks is humiliating to be dumped by Tan for someone like her.

        November 2, 2013
        • MJUNE #

          Alina She indeed in love Tan cause she won’t act up like a crazy fiancee who loses control of her composure and become insecure when she met ES in KT home. As i remember she was shocked to know that she got the keys and she slept there with KT’s permission to use the house like she is a guest even if she just met her. And when KT admitted to her that he likes ES all the more she is bent to get her revenge from the pain she is feeling and the lost of engagement t him was unbearable. So she asked YD to take care of ES and she will do what ever he wants from her just to break up KT and ES. Alina she won’t gamble all if she wan’t in love with KT.

          November 2, 2013
      • babyboo #

        To MJUNE: Yes my mom also think he’s asking for her v card, and YD flirts alot , like with rachel (complimenting she’s pretty and winking) and also complimenting Bo Na. So he might be targetting Rachel’s virginity.

        Alina: yes i know most kdramas dont go that far but… the writer of this drama, kim eun sook. is well known for writing racy and se xy scenes before.. like in the past drama that she wrote “gentleman’s dignity”it is said to be the male version of the super famous “se x and the city”

        she even make KT’s character kinda have a naughty thoughts, like most of 18 years old. like when ES tie her hair, it make her neck visible and KT was biting and chewing his lip while he stare at it (perv thoughts) before pulling her hair down in episode 6 XD

          November 3, 2013
      • after I watched the new preview for ep 9,i got the feeling YD will go to Tan’s house because he will suspect ES stays there.I’m not sure but I don’t really see any other reason for him to be there.ES and Tan holding hands, and Tan’s face’s all bruised.AWWW,that’s too cute!!!!and finally she will admit that she likes him too.but YD was kind of an hypocrite,trying to act like an hero and saving her from those customers.until now,all he did was to torment her and now,BANG,he’s her protector.I’m now saying that he should let those 2 misbehave with her,but …..I don’t know,that seemed false to me,because until now he was the one who abused her the most.

        November 3, 2013
    • marlene #

      Hi babyboo, i don’t think its Rachel’s virginity that YD is asking with that question. Its not typical for Kdrama to go that way specially with HS set up. I would like to think that along the road YD might ask Rachel to give up on KT so ES and KT can be happy together. YD is still far from that at this point because He hasnt learnd true love , losing gracefully and sacrifice which I think he will learn when he realizes the depths of his feelings for ES.

      I am hoping for more cute and fun episodes for ES and KT tho.. these past few episodes were too heavy and angstsy.. I hope they can have some time alone without their families and friends for cutesy moments:))) it’s not looking good base on the preview:))

    Jooni, you asked your viewers like me where are the parents of R and YD while they are causing trouble and chaos in school, they are busy making money for the empire to expand and conquer the business world by storm in planing for their marriage. Like KT, And Won’s Father and step Mother on this drama are all selfish and manipulative individuals who only cares about themselves and their companies prestige and expansion far beyond what they can imagine now, at the risk of their own children’s well being. Yoon is the only parent who is always there for his son no matter what’s going on around him and his career. They hate their name to get stained by bad reports about their sons yet they don’t even care if their sons are truly happy on the way they live as a family.

    We don’t need to know where to find them cause they got their own personal issues to deal with, which is causing more depression and anger to their children more than they can truly comprehend them as their sons and daughter.
