Written before live recap

The preview of episode 14 brings back memories of Kim Eun Sook’s older drama Secret Garden. The writer seems to be following a very similar story arc, with episode 12 ending in a connection between the two leads: Cha Eun Sang and Kim Tan facing each other and crying, and Kim Joo Won and Gil Ra Im staring at each other in the resort suite while they lie on the ground with the action school fellow singing Kim Kwang Suk’s song in the background. Episode 14 in Secret Garden also had a party scene where Ra Im comes all dressed up and Joo Won and her kiss very publicly. These stills for The Heirs hint at a similar scene, although I doubt there will be a hot make-out scene like we had in Secret Garden. Please prove me wrong, drama!

The order will go like this. I can’t post updates while the drama is airing, unless the episode is moving slowly. I will be trying to capture as much as possible while I am watching the episode.  When the episode is over, I will go back to my notes, fix them up a bit and update part by part on each recap post while waiting for the torrents. If you can leave a link here, that would be great. When the full episode is available, I will fill in more blanks and screencaps, and continue to update. Finally, I will leave my comments.

Episode 14

vlcsnap-2013-11-21-23h47m07s54

Tan has arrived just outside the broadcast room. Through the door window, he can see YD, and he realizes that ES is in there too. He tries to get it, but YD locks the door. Tan kicks the door furiously, yelling at YD to open the door before he kills him.

Inside, ES asks YD to open the door. YD replies, “When I said I would torture all those around you, it included Kim Tan. And me.”

Tan finally kicks the door open, and telling ES to get out, punches YD. I noticed here that YD has pushed ES behind him so she doesn’t get hurt, knowing Tan is going to beat him up. Tan picks up a chair to hit Young Do, but ES desperately grabs Tan’s waist to stop him. “Don’t do this.” Meanwhile, YD never fights back, steps back, or drops his gaze from ES.

vlcsnap-2013-11-21-23h47m44s161 vlcsnap-2013-11-21-23h47m46s183 vlcsnap-2013-11-21-23h47m41s132

Tan throws the chair down and pushes ES outside. “Don’t come in.” Tan grabs YD’s collar and seethes, “I warned you not to bother ES.” YD pushes Tan away- he said that he would stop bothering ES if Tan let go of ES.

Tan is sick and tired of this. To Young Do, he says, “Are you going to keep going till the end?” YD replies he has to since he gave up his last meal with his mom to beat Tan. Every time he looks at Tan, he wants to kill himself.

Tan tells YD to grow up- how many chances gave he give to YD? YD tells Tan to stop pretending he is an adult. Tan replies he has always done is best with YD even when YD hurt Tan, insulted his mother, and when YD’s mom left. YD retorts that it is Tan’s best that always makes him mad.

Tan points out that in the past and even now, YD makes himself miserable to make others miserable, with his all. “How can you not change at all?”

YD asks if Tan is happy with him only changing? “A bigger fight? Don’t kid yourself. Breaking up the engagement? You’re going to end up kneeling in front of your father anyway. Do it now then. Or are you going to make ES end up kneeling? What you are doing now is not a bigger fight but a foolhardy fight.” Tan points out to Tan, “Have you even fought a foolhardy fight? If I end up kneeling, I kneel. But then I can get back up. If I keep getting up, then the day will come when I don’t fall. You just stay there, Choi Young Do. I am no longer there.” One of the best lines so far!

Outside the room, R approaches ES and asks if the theme of this fight is her. ES is crying. Tan comes out and without even looking at R, just walks away with ES.

R goes into the room to see YD. R demands to know why YD tried to reveal Tan’s secret; did he changed his mind? YD replies he hasn’t changed his mind; it is to see someone for a just a brief moment.

Outside, ES asks why YD and Tan fight like this all time. Tan replies it is because of her- they are in a love triangle right now! But ES knows it is not all because of her, so Tan replies, “I am still regretting, and YD is resenting himself.”

Back to R and YD.  YD is basically telling R the same thing- about resenting himself. But it’s not like he can fight with himself. He turns the question to R- she knows that Tan hasn’t done anything wrong to her. Tan never gave her hope. She’s the one who broke the rules of the arranged marriage; it’s cheating to hold onto and obsess in an arranged relationship.

YD continues, “Still, could you find that you could forgive Tan? Can you acknowledge that you are acting worse than Tan?” R can’t answer. YD: “It’s like that for me too. So all I can do is persist.”

vlcsnap-2013-11-22-00h15m20s84 vlcsnap-2013-11-22-00h15m26s140

Back to Tan and ES. ES comments that it seems YD and Tan are the ones dating. Cuteness ensues in regards to Tan’s uniform that ES washed. Tan ends up threatening to take off the uniform right now. ES shields her eyes.

BN is telling HS on the phone that the door to the broadcast room has been smashed in. She sees CY in the hallway and tries to talk to him, but CY ignores her and keeps walking. BN pretends to fall. CY still walks away, but his anger is already melting because of BN’s cute antics. He smiles to himself.

vlcsnap-2013-11-22-00h20m25s60 vlcsnap-2013-11-22-00h20m27s79

In front of the lockers, YS asks ES to help her get the script for her drama audition tomorrow from MS’s studio since she can’t go there anymore. ES agrees and asks if YS is okay. YS guesses the ES is laughing at her inside. ES sigh and notes that kids in this school all think they know what the other person in thinking. And they don’t know how to apologize.

Before ES leaves, YS apologizes to her. ES smiles and say she will call YS later.

ES has come to MS’s studio to get the script. YD is there. Without saying anything o her, he is about to leave when ES calls him back and offers him a band-aid for the wound on his face due to Tan’s punch. He doesn’t take it and just leaves.

ES is packing up YS’s things. BN has come to get the script also, but seeing that ES has it, just tells her to make sure YS gets it since YS needs it for the audition. Aww, BN, you are such a sweetie.

vlcsnap-2013-11-22-00h34m18s199

ES comes out and sees that YD hasn’t left yet. He puts out his hand in front of her, and meekly says to her, “Give it to me. The band-aid.” ES offers it to him again. He gruffly pulls it out of ES’s hand and leaves without another word.

ES is talking to CY on the phone about BN, while hanging up her uniform to dry, advising them to make up soon, before someone else takes “pretty Bo Na.” CY admits that he find her so adorable before in the hallway.

ES’s mom is making a list of things the new maid after her should know. KA comes into the kitchen and gets upset that ES’s mom is doing this so fast- she hasn’t even found another maid yet? Does ES’s mom want to leave that much? The other maid comes to say that Rachel has come. ES comes into the kitchen so KA tells ES to go into room; R can’t find out that ES is here too in this house or it’s really over for Tan.

KA comes out to greet R. R greets KA, calling her “mother.” R acts nice, offering KA flowers and saying she is glad to meet her.

R and KA talk. R compliments Tan, saying Tan was brave and must think of his mother a lot. KA looks relieved, btu she is concerned about R’s mom. R replies that her mom was more thrown back because KA pretended to be ES’s mom. Why did she do that? KA lies that she did that because something came up for ES’s mom that day. R asks if they are that close. KA replies, “Somewhat.”

R tells KA that she has been feeling a little unsettled because it seems Tan likes ES. KA lies that Tan is just being nice to ES because KA knows the family.

R also assures KA that she has no plans to break the engagement. KA looks relieved and thanks her.

R is leaving the house, with the fake smile gone, and she sees a girl’s uniform hanging on the laundry line. She checks the pocket and finds ES’s name tag. R calls JS or KA and asks why ES is living in Tan’s house.

ES comes out of her room. She notices her uniform is gone.

The next day at school, Tan is waiting outside for ES with soy milk to share but she doesn’t show up at their meeting stop. He calls, but there is no answer.

Inside the school, ES asks R where her uniform is. R  replies that she threw it out.

ES runs to the trash bins to search for her uniform. She finds it and is upset since her mom bought it. R comes out and asks if ES’s heart hurts; this is what she felt like seeing ES’s uniform at Tan’s house. ES asks if R feels better after seeing ES dig through trash. R replies no- this is just the beginning. How could she feel better only with this, after finding out the girl her fiance is dating only a maid’s daughter, who is lying she is new money.

ES yells, asking what can she do so R feels better. R tells ES to clean up the trash- she should have learned a thing or two from her mom. ES slaps R. R’s mind is blown. She is about to slap ES’s back, but ES blocks her. ES yells at R for insulting her mom.

R tells ES to leave the school- she is giving E the chance to just leave quietly before R reveals ES’s secret. ES dares her too; she isn’t scared. R threatens to let out not only ES’s secret, but also Tan’s secret. YD won’t do it since he never planned to from the beginning, but R has not reason to keep it a secret. ES screams, “Why bring Kim Tan into my problem?” R explains this is what will make ES transfer schools. R: “If I can’t have it, I will tie both of you together and drop you.” ES, scared for Tan, says she will think about transferring.

Suddenly, Tan’s voice is heard. He has overheard this conversation. Tan tells ES to leave. She does.

R starts to explain, to complain about her hurt, but Tan interrupts her. He just asks how R found out ES lived at his house. R says she went to Tan’s house to see his mom. Tan replies, “Which mom? The mom you looked at like she was a bug?” R has nothing to say to that.

Tan continues, saying he wanted to at least remain friends with R, but it seems he can’t even do that now. “While I can’t hit a girl, in my heart, I already have.” He leaves.

vlcsnap-2013-11-22-01h16m07s199 vlcsnap-2013-11-22-01h16m09s221

Tan goes to ES on the roof. He is angry that ES didn’t tell him about Rachel coming yesterday; is he not someone she can lean on? ES explains she didn’t say anything, “Because just your own problems are too overwhelming for you.” Tan yells, “Every moment since I was born has been overwhelming! A hidden mother, a brother who hates me, my father’s wife’s spiteful remarks, a father who created all this, the anger of friend who learned the secret, the three years left alone in a strange land…I’m saying my situation right now is not because of you.”

ES interjects that all that isn’t his fault either. She assures him once more that all that isn’t because of him.

Frustrated, Tan asks ES if they should just run away to the US. E points out that both she and Tan would be abandoning their mothers- shall they leave? There is no answer from Tan. Silence just fills the air to a question they know the answer to, and the helplessness of the situation.

vlcsnap-2013-11-22-01h29m05s47

Tan and YD are getting scolded again by JS for the broadcast incident and the door being damaged. She tells them they will receive long-term punishment, doubled. Also, JS instructs YD to bring his dad to school. Tan tries to stop this, but JS instructs Tan to bring Won. Uh

HJ has to counsel Tan and YD now. She wants them to write down what they each did wrong, but Young and Tan both say it’s the other persons’ fault. HJ tells them to write that down then.

Tan and YD think about what the other person did wrong to them: Tan- what YD did wrong to him, and YD- what Tan did wrong to him.

Flashback. YD’s mom is asking Tan where YD is; she doesn’t have a cellphone right now. Tan says YD is not talking to him these days. Tan notices YD’s mom’s bag. Mom says she doesn’t have time- can he please bring YD to the little food place in front of the school?

Little Tan chases after YD, trying to bring him to his mom, but YD insults Tan and doesn’t follow.

Older Tan and YD are thinking to themselves what they each did wrong to each other now. Tan: “I should have kept on trying to bring you to your mom. If I knew it would be your last chance. YD: “I should have followed you. If I knew that it would be a chance that would never come again.” They still don’t write anything down on the paper, though. HJ asks why they haven’t written anything- did they do nothing wrong? They why did they fight? It’s a question that gets to heart of YD and Tan’s foolishness in fighting with each other all this time.

vlcsnap-2013-11-22-01h41m32s96

In the broadcasting studio, BN yells at ES- hasn’t she told CY yet that BN feels sorry? BN is saying how sorry she is and that she can’t breathe without CY. HS puts on the mic so it is all broadcast throughout the school.

BN is embarrassed, and runs into CY in the hallway. BN runs away, and CY chases after her.

vlcsnap-2013-11-22-01h46m21s168

HS finally sees that HJ is here in Jeguk High. HJ informs him that has upgraded from being a tutor to a teacher- “Congratulate me.” HS replies that he doesn’t want to since his first love have grown even farther this time.vlcsnap-2013-11-22-01h46m33s29

MS and YD are at the studio. MS is worried about YD- how is his first or one-side love going? YD wonders if ES is his first love. MS replies, “If Tan isn’t your first love.” Ha!

MS advices YD to stop since it seems Tan and ES won’t break up. To test how much YD likes ES, MS asks what YD will do if both he and ES fell into the water. YD replies he won’t allow MS and ES together alone by the water. MS changes the question- what will YD do if he himself and ES fall into the water? YD replies he will save ES so she will live and be unable to go to Tan out of guilt that YD died. MS points out that YD always picks the sad ending. Also, what is he going to do about his dad?

vlcsnap-2013-11-22-01h56m24s56

Tan walks ES to his house. ES asks when Tan will come home. Tan replies he will come home with his brother. First, though, he is planning to take Won to school with him. ES jokes that Tan won’t even be able to go the second plan then.

Tan is sitting in the lobby of Zeus Hotel. Won sees him and doesn’t just pass by. He actually talks to him and asks why he is here, instead of in the room. Tan says he is here to think. Won sits down next to him. They sit silently side by side until Tan points out the both are them are really strange, leaving a perfectly fine house to live in a hotel. Won: “Because we left the house.”

vlcsnap-2013-11-22-02h01m09s85

Tan asks why Won dislikes him so much. Won says he has no reason to like him, a brother with a different mother. Tan replies. “Right. I’ll be good to you.” Won tells him not to; it makes him uncomfortable. Won gets up now, and Tan follows him. His brother’s coldness doesn’t bother him that much anymore.

BN is giving out invitation to her make-up party with CY. She hands one to YD. Also to YS. YS and BN are busy apologizing to each other, saying they are more sorry than the other person. ADORABLE. Tan takes an invitation too.

Tan goes to broadcast room to talk to HS. He is concerned about HS- he’s going to do well on the college admissions examination, right?

It is the day of the exam (and BN’s party). HS has arrived to take the test. His mother wishes him luck. She leaves before HS has fully gone into the test site. Uh oh, not a good idea.

vlcsnap-2013-11-22-02h26m27s158

Tan is in Won’s room alone. He sees the list of stockholders and makes a connection to what Won said before on the phone with Yoon. He calls Yoon, but  Yoon says he will call back later.

At Jeguk, Yoon sees the notice of personnel change. Anyone notice that some of the names on the list are the names of the members of Park Hyung Sik’s group, ZE:A? Pfft! Yoon goes to talk to Won.  He says to Won, “You’ve begun the war.” Won to Yoon: “Decide. Whether I will put your name on the last line or not.”

Brother-in-law has called Chairman Kim to inform him of the personnel reassignment. Daddy Kim wasn’t away of this at all.

Tan arrives at the restaurant. KA has used ES to call Tan because Tan wouldn’t answer her calls. Tan asks if ES is also working part time as a hostage.

Tan asks if she brought some clothes. Hehe, KA has. Such a sucker for her son. KA tells Tan that R came to the house and that she thinks R knows something about Tan and ES’s relationship. What are they planning to do? Tan replies they plan to be happy. KA asks, “How???” His dad is not going to leave Tan alone like this for long. Tan pipes up that he has no time for this then and leaves with ES. Aww, poor KA.

vlcsnap-2013-11-22-02h24m12s95

Outside, Tan asks if ES is upset over what his mom said. ES says she just finds it fascinating that KA said, “Break up you two.” Tan is amazed that ES is fascinated, not scared.

Tan says he wants to hold hands. ES offers her hand, but Tan hugs her shoulders. They walk side by side with Tan’s arm around ES’s shoulders. Tan scolds ES for becoming mom’s hostage. ES says it was the other way around; KA was hers since she wanted to see Tan.

vlcsnap-2013-11-22-02h30m45s186

They bicker about what to do next, which ends up with Tan threatening ES that he will kiss her if she keeps talking back. ES escapes, needing to go to her part-time job, but Tan walks up to her and back-hugs here, enveloping her with his coat. He points out that this is what ES did to him before to keep him for hurting YD with the chair. He embraces her correctly next, asking her to do this next time.

vlcsnap-2013-11-22-02h47m57s2

ES finds $50 in Tan’s coat, which makes Tan release her immediately. Cute. Yoon calls, and Tan rushes off.

Yoon informs Tan about his birthday stocks and what his dad has been doing with them. Tan: “Hyung must be really angry.” Yoon tells Tan that Won has already started the war with his dad, transferring all the people that were on that stockholders’ list and were standing behind Tan into other positions or locations.

Tan says that regardless of what he wants, under no will of his own, he is put into the fighting ring. Yoon replies it is because Tan was born the second son of Jeguk; he was born with a lot but he also has to give up a lot of things- such as his own will. Tan says he knows why he is put into the fighting ring- so that he doesn’t dream about something else.

Tan asks what will happen if Won wins the battle against his dad; will he be fighting Tan next? Yoon affirms.

R and BN are at the same hair salon. R is trying to get out of BN where ES works. She also asks where BN’s party is. BN doesn’t want R to come.

R texts YD, saying she is in front of ES’s part-time job. Worried, YD rushes over to ES’s café WITH HIS HAIR UNWAXED, and R tails him from the hotel. R and YD meet outside the cafe, with YD now realizing that R tricked him. He grabs her collar, and R asks if YD is going to hit a girl too now. YD says he is not scared to become a bad guy for things involving Cha Eun Sang. R tells him to be be scared since YD liking ES seems to be poison to ES.

vlcsnap-2013-11-22-02h56m59s53 vlcsnap-2013-11-22-02h57m02s75

At BN’s party. BN and CY cuteness. R arrives. Nobody is really happy to see her, but R says she ordered coffee for this party.

vlcsnap-2013-11-22-03h01m29s186 vlcsnap-2013-11-22-03h01m34s243

YD sits outside ES’s café, worried and nervous. ES arrives, and YD jumps up from his seat.  YD tells her that R found out ES works here because of him- “I’m sorry.” ES tells him it’s okay- they’ve hidden it as long as they can. YD wants ES to call him if R shows up here. ES tells him not to worry- “You know I have a lot of black knights protecting me.” YD remembers that he said that line to her. He says to ES, “I think it was then. That I started liking you. Even if you have a lot of knights, I’m worried. Call me.”

ES gets a catering order. On instinct, she calls CY and confirms that the catering is at CY and BN’s party.

ES texts Tan, who is sitting in the hotel lobby again thinking, asking if he is there at the party. He texts he is going. ES says she is going too- don’t be surprised when he sees her.  He texts why- isn’t she working right now? There is no reply so he calls. No answer. Tan gets up and leaves. He runs into YD in the lobby, but just walks past him, perhaps not even noticing him in his focus on Eun Sang.

vlcsnap-2013-11-22-03h17m24s13

ES comes into the party, announcing that she is catering service. R has a smug look on her face, but ES acts normally, saying she is working her part-time job and congrats to CY and BN. CY figures out this is R’s plan. ES says she came knowing. MS asks why ES is working a part-time job. ES is about to reveal her secret, but Tan comes in.

Tan wants her to leave with him. ES says she is working. R announces that she is the one who ordered the drinks. Tan asks when ES is finished. ES replies when she is done pouring all the drinks, so Tan turns over the table, spilling everything. He takes ES outside. ES apologizes to R, and says she will be back with new drinks. BN gets mad at R. MS calls YD.

vlcsnap-2013-11-22-03h36m00s164

Outside, ES and Tan fight. He asks how she can come here knowing everything that R has set up. E asks why she can’t have a part-time job; Choi Young Do doing it is okay because that is his hotel, but her working is embarrassing because this isn’t her cafe chain? Tan explains that that is not what he means. He just doesn’t want ES to be treated like that there at the party.

ES yells, “The thing I was most embarrassed about was me, who didn’t say anything when I was called new money at school. I wasn’t embarrassed about my poverty, but the fact I was lying.” Tan says he know that, but he just wants her go down the easy path.

ES informs him she came to tell all the other kids the truth. She hasn’t sleep well since the lie started, always fearing what will happen the next day. She points out that it was the same for Tan too, from the moment he was born till just a few days ago. He kept a secret all that time, but he finally revealed it!

vlcsnap-2013-11-22-03h35m55s119

Tan explains that is why he doesn’t want her to- you don’t become happier after revealing the secret. He doesn’t want her to get hurt. He asks why she is being so stubborn about this. ES replies that she learned it from him- knowing she will get hurt but continuing forward. She leaves, saying she will be back.

R comes out and says to Tan it would have been better for Tan if ES was at least new money. Tan doesn’t even look at her as she tells R to not talk to him- from now on too. To Tan, R is not even worth mixing words with. He just continues to look toward where ES disappeared.

Tan waits outside for ES to come back. She does, with new drinks. Tan apologizes for making it hard for her by making her new money. If she find she can’t do it anymore (announcing her secret), come to him and hug him.

vlcsnap-2013-11-22-03h44m14s239

vlcsnap-2013-11-22-03h46m07s95

ES announces to everyone at the party that she is not new money; she is a charity case. YD comes in the midst of this. CY is about to do something to help ES, but Tan stops him.

The kids get angry at ES. They also think Tan has been fooled by ES. Tan says yes, he has been fooled. He walks over to ES. He says, “ I thought it would be okay since she pretended to be strong, but she is shaking.”

R  stomps off. Tan asks MS to turn on the music. He also tells the other kids to serve their own drinks; Eun Sang is off work now.

Lights go down. ES and Tan only look at each other. ES whispers, “I did it.” Tan  says, “Nice to meet you, charity case Cha Eun Sang. I am an illegitimate, Kim Tan.”

YD can’t watch this anymore, his heart breaking into a million pieces. He leaves.

Tan says, “Let’s start the party now.” Tan steps closer to ES and gently takes off her apron, her hair tie, and puts a corsage on her wrist. He cups her face in his hands and softly kisses ES on her forehead.

No Preview for Episode 14

Comment:

One of the biggest lessons in life is not learning how to get up when you fall; it’s learning that it is okay to fall, because you can always get up again. As the old adage says, there is nothing to fear but fear itself. If you are afraid to fall, afraid to fight, you can’t do anything. But if you take courage and fight the good fight, you can always get up again if you fall.

Tan took that step forward into the battlefield last week, daring to go against his father and the prejudiced world. He gathered the courage because there was someone he desired and wanted to protect. It didn’t solve all his problems- in fact, he may have just brought on more in terms of major business repercussions- but he was able to obtain the person he needed- Eun Sang- by his side for those future attacks.

Eun Sang has stood by, watching Tan grow and change for her. She saw him become free from the burden of his secret, and in this episode, Eun Sang was ready to do that for herself. She wanted to be free from being miserable, worried, and scared all the time- that the other kids will find out and bully her and that R will reveals Tan’s secret along with hers. If she reveals it first, it will restore her integrity as well as weaken Rachel’s ammunition against Tan.

Now Eun Sang can stand free and proud as who she really is in front of the other kids. And Tan kisses her, on the forehead, as a sign that he loves all and everything that she is. Joo Won also kissed Ra Im on the forehead before that full make-out kiss in episode 14 of Secret Garden. I don’t think we’ll be seeing that kind of kissing in The Heirs but the kiss on the forehead is gentle, protective, and grateful- the three best qualities of love. Tan’s forehead kiss is very appropriate in this moment of this drama as Tan treats Eun Sang a little more delicately than before, he is protective of her, and he is grateful for her love and her courage.

Tan finds his lonely life being filled little by little due to the courage he has shown. He is no longer that child who used to sit alone on the stairs of his huge American house and eat a sandwich. He gathered the courage to come back to Korea and he gained his mother back. He found his friends like Hyo Shin, Myung Soo, and Bo Na again. He is able to share a hotel room with his brother and also sit side-by-side with him for an extended amount of time. He also has Eun Sang now in life- the person who accepted him for who he is, an illegitimate son. He is filling his life with them, as they fill their lives with Tan. In episode four, Tan said in a voiceover right before he decided to come to Korea, “I always imagined about the people who are lonely because I exist. I wished that those people felt lonely because I wasn’t there.” Tan, you’ve certainly achieved this, although your brother might need a little more cracking.

As for Young Do, as Tan pointed out, he is stuck where he is, only able to make others miserable by making himself miserable. He doesn’t fight against his father’s tyranny because he isn’t ready to fall if he loses the fight. Instead, he keeps going up against Tan, a person he has no real reason to fight against.

Today’s episode really felt like the end of Tan and YD’s non-Eun Sang related conflicted since both boys admitted- although not aloud- that they both did wrong to each other. While YD and Tan probably still can’t be friends because of ES, the primary source of conflict seems to be solved between them. With that issue gone and ES showing no room in her heart for him, YD is unable to do anything but worry about Eun Sang, think about Eun Sang, and be sad about Eun Sang. My heart aches for him as he has no where to go and  no one to lean on.

I’m guessing that Hyo Shin is not going to take the examination, which would probably be worse to his parents than committing suicide.

Two of my favorite scenes this episode was when Young Do and Tan were sitting side by side, and Won and Tan were sitting down by side. It the first time we have seen these pairs sitting next to each other not fighting. They show how much the relationship between these pairs have changed. 

Okay, I am falling asleep while typing, making so many mistakes, so I will just stop writing the comments for now and come back after getting some sleep. Much love and much thanks to you guys. Looking forward to reading your comments too.

  1. Ok so I just love ep13 ending because of the tragic admission that he wanted that one brief moment together knowing he will need to let her go.
    Just like jihu in BOF. T-T
    Then in ep14 even more pity for YD… The pain is raw!

    November 22, 2013
    • not really like in BOF,YD never had ES ,so him knowing he will need to let her go doesn’t make any sens.how can he let go of something he never had,in the first place?

    Guys I think there is no dilemma at all.
    Writter has clearly shown how much ES and Tan love each other. People are telling tan is rude and not impressive.come on. I know ,he behaved bit violently few times. But any human brain will understand the reason behind it(so I hope I dnt need to waste my words on it). Who are we to tell who ES should choose? She loves tan with her whole heart. She accepts his mistakes and adore his courage. She even mentions that tan is her inspiration to be honest and reveals her secret.
    At da same time tan has done so much to be with ES. They both truly love each other without any question.
    I really dnt understand how at this point people are hoping ES to go to YD.

          Yes I love this song too. But when I watched the version with the lyrics translated, it was so sad that tears can’t help coming from my eyes. I beg what is written in the song won’t happen to Tan and ES.

                i’ve been looking for it since ep 12 it was played after ES rejected Tan’s hand , you know if you watch ep 12 on viki the lyrics were written with the ep , and it was really sad it started with this :
                Smile brightly
                don’t worry about me
                i’m still smiling like this i won’t be able to forget
                i can just be the person who remembers
                i won’t forget so smile for me

            Ur right. The sad song in the last beautiful scene may be indicate something bad in the following episode 15.oh my! Soooooo sorry for this thought anyway!

    Here is the lyrics i picked up from Viki :

    Smile brightly
    don’t worry about me
    i’m still smiling like this i won’t be able to forget
    i can just be the person who remembers
    i won’t forget so smile for me
    Smile Brightly
    I’m just thankful
    Because i have memories of times i spent with you
    I’ll keep it hidden
    i can take it out and have a look
    When i miss you , It’ll give me strength
    with just my heart , i steal glances at you
    with just my heart , I’ll hug you
    that’s good enough for me , don’t get hurt because of me .

      November 23, 2013

      Reading those lyrics, it sounds like Young Do’s heart, if he ever evolves into someone who desires only for ES to be happy, and lets go of her gracefully…

  10. If woo bin would not be paired with park shin hye in this drama..is there any possibly for woo bin to be a couple with park shin hye for another drama? I love their chemistry more than with min ho oppa ..^^

    November 23, 2013
    • Alina #

      Who knows,but I don’t really see any chemistry between them.but this is my opinion,of course.

      November 23, 2013
    • Marlene #

      I’m not a huge park shin hye fan but I just realized that I’ve watched most of her dramas .. She seem to be able to build a good rapport and chemistry with her leading man.
      So maybe there’s a chance that a producer will pick up on KWB and PSY chemistry and do some kind of action rom -com drama for them. That will make you guys happy!!
      I’m reading all these argument between YD-ES -KT fans and I still smile . I think it’s healthy because you guys still have in common. You all LOVE this drama but like different characters.
      The writer achieved what she wants for those characters an that is to get sympathy in each of them.

      Having said that and from my other post. I believe that this is KT and ES love story.. We are all hoping for an acceptable ending for YD..

      But please HS don’t kill yourself!! I like you.. You’re a good friend to all of them. I actually want HS to end up with HJ!!
      Won will have the company but won’t get the girl ! He has to bear with his crown right??
      Cheers everyone!! Let’s enjoy and cheer for our favorite couple until the end of the show !!

      Holidays is coming for those who celebrate Christmas and it’s getting cold !!
      Have fun and keep yourselves warm!

      it could happen. shin hye and jung yong hwa was paired in another different drama because many people ship them in “you’re beautiful”

      November 23, 2013
      • Marlene #

        Speaking if Jung young hwa, apparently he turned down YD role and pick MHIYD drama.

        KWB is doing a good job as YD !! But it will be interesting how it will turn out if it’s JYH acting as YD. Would there still be lots of debate with the pairing ? Haven’t seen JYH act as a bad boy before ..

        November 25, 2013
        • riskha #

          Ooo.. so the role jong hwa turned down in Heirs was YD. I like him coz he has great skills in music, but i dont think he can match LMH’s acting, also he’s a bit shorter =p
          I cant imagine he got that fight with LMH. KWB is a perfect match to LMH.

      I hope not because of this song, we get a sad ep15 next week.but we cannot expect rachel and tan dad will sit still and do nothing to stop the couple.expect the worst…..arh!

  13. Jocelyn #

    Wow, I’m amazed there are so many voices about this song. From the version with Chinese translations that I watched, which is the same one as Sharon’s quote, the meaning is even worse than the viki one. It has the meaning of separation and is ultra ultra sad. I’m hoping Joonni can help with translating the lyrics as there are so many of us so love love love this song.

    November 23, 2013
    • sharon ngo #

      Jocelyn.its 3 days to go.this song is very comforting:)actually happy to find out many heir fans share my interest to this song.i think this song first airing in ep12 after es reject the hands and kt alone in rooftop.then ep13 when es study and kt sleep on the couch. Third time is the forehead kiss . cheers !

    Kim Tan and Eun Sang’s relationship is becoming cheesy IN MY OPINION
    Yeah they’re together now. yay. the next 6 episodes will probably just revolve around their relationship struggles…
    Im excited to watch this for YD though. i like to see how he try to woo ES. sometimes it make me laugh, awww or goes wtf… for me his appearance makes the drama more exciting. if his character doesn’t exist, it wouldn’t be fun…yeah he’s a bad guy here, but at least he’s getting better now. KT was also a bad guy anyway. if YD treats ES the way he treats ES now ever since the start, i’m pretty sure she’ll like him.
    whenever KT flirts with girls, for ex bo na. i’m just like : dayum make up your mind.
    YD never have a gf… and i think its cute that ES is his first love.
    my mom likes KT thought… lol

      what show are you watching? he has never flirted with anyone. Bo Na is silly and she imagines things. KThas been nothing but focused on ES. He changed his whole life for her. Revealed his secrets so he can only be with her. His whole life is ES now. What more do you need to see? another case of KWB fever blindness. She rejected YD. She loves KT. open your eyes

      November 23, 2013
      • babyboo #

        I know she loves KT. do i ever say she don’t ? read the comment and “use your eyes” 😉

        I said ” if YD treats ES the way he treats ES now ever since the start, i’m pretty sure she’ll like him.”
        but he didn’t, i was just saying “IF”
        user your eyes and then reply to someone’s comment.

        and KT did flirt with Bo Na. he said he likes her. KT will be mad if ES said he likes Young Do even if its joking.

        “What more do you need to see?” you can’t think everyone will like KT. not everyone will ship KT with ES

        Lmfao ,”another case of KWB fever blindness. ” don’t go all butt hurt just because I think YD is less boring. Not everyone will like the same thing .

        No matter how you want to convince me to like him, i can’t. i don’t think i can convince you to like YD either.

        I keep seeing the same accounts replying to the YD comments and bashing them.. lol

      I´m a super fan of Kdrama. I love all kind of happy endings and love stories and I reeaaaaaally found the last scene of ep 14 so effing corny! Don´t take wrong I loooovee it! I just think that, as you said, it was the calm before the storm. I think the next episodes will be sad so the writer wanted to gave us some love first! 😦

      November 23, 2013
    • I get what you mean, babyboo, but I can’t help but think that if ES starts to like YD, then she would be breaking KT’s heart after all he’s done for her, as well as for himself, his mom, her mom, the slaps, the insults, the angst, and we would be “feeling” his pain… I mean, there’s no point at least not in Heirs with only 6 episodes left in the series.

      November 23, 2013
      • babyboo #

        i said ES will like YD if he was kind to her from the start. that means before all the drama happen. i don’t think she will like YD now. since this is a drama about KT and ES anyway.

    I been reading a lot of posts and comments (both positive and negative) about Heirs. I have to put in my two cents, I honostly enjoyed Heirs for the whole sake of just enjoying an angsyt teen rom/com.

        Hi Nana,
        Are you talking about the haters of this show? The ones from other blogs who keeps in comparing , complaining and criticizing everything about The Heirs.!ii feel your frustration girl.
        If you hate the show don’t watch it so why watch and criticize .. Those are mean true haters!!
        It’s too bad that there are mean people like that.
        They say that they are just expressing their opinions and free speech . I don’t buy it . I think they just like to put this show down .
        Liking a show is very relative to people’s taste.
        If you like this kind or that kind of drama.. There’s no point in comparing a melo VS a rom com .
        I’m sorry I don’t get how thy can watch and not like .. It would be a torture for me to sit thru an hour and watch a
        Show that I dislike.
        Don’t let them get into your skin .. It’s a waste of good energy , that’s why I left dramabeans and stick with Joonni here .

        November 23, 2013
        • I agree with Marlene,there is no point in getting upset over what those haters say.they just enjoy to hate,with or without reasons.and if you tell them not to watch the show if they dislike it that much,and to stop commenting if they have nothing nice to say,they get all aggressive and tell you not to read their comments.one of them even said yes,I’m a hater,sue me!!! what can you talk with people who think like that? their life must be pretty sad if they have nothing better to do,except spreading their hate everywhere.this must be the nicest blog out there,with the nicest people.even here we have different opinions,but that’s normal,as long as we keep it friendly.

    And These bashers always reply on 98% of the YD comment…
    Well, sorry that not everyone like KT.
    Even when I never say I like YD’s bad characters, they assume I do and suddenly i am stamp as a delusional KWB fangirl. lmfao

    there was this one time where KT told ES that he said they’re dating to YD. and ES is like “no we are not! why did you lie?” and KT goes “you’re my gf now. we’re dating.” but ES clearly doesn’t agree but he keep saying she is his gf even when she said no. if this happen to someone but the guy isn’t KT, many people will bash the guy.

      i think u’re just thinking too much, and your comments are a lil bit harsh, sorry.
      when you say that ‘not everyone will like the same thing you do’, it applies to the comments too. u’re free to ship KT-ES or YD-ES, but NEVER put a harsh word to other shiper, they have their rights too to hear nice word about their preferences (just like you).
      instead of commenting on KT-ES why don’t you comment your preference to YD-ES only?
      i’m sure u’ll get alot nice replies from other shiper too (there are many YD lovers on this page actually)
      as for me, i love all of the characters because they’re unique to each other. big applause to the writer, who has been succeed to fill our heart n brain with this love story ^ ^
      i’m just hoping this site won’t be filled with hatred like those others, i love joonni too much to feel hurt whenever people leave a harsh comment on others. please, save our life-saver’s site!

        “i think u’re just thinking too much, ” check the comments before you say that. i’m not thinking too much, nain. 😉

        “but NEVER put a harsh word to other shiper, they have their rights too to hear nice word about their preferences ” excuse me, when did i put harsh words? you’re the one who is thinking too much here

        “when you say that ‘not everyone will like the same thing you do’, it applies to the comments too. ”

        nain, i don’t go around replying to KT shipper.
        i comment bout YD and people come and reply to my comment and bash him lol
        they can comment about YD , and i won’t care. and i won’t reply them either cause its up to them if they like KT.

        why should they care if I like YD. its not like i care if they like KT better.

          OMG…do we have to argue? 🙂 haha…i’m literally laughing to this,
          feels like replaying high school all over again. Ok, stop this n start other nice topic about the drama…newest information will do better.
          still, 2 days more… 😉

          November 24, 2013
    • Hey Babyboo. It’s okay. I’m on your side. 🙂
      Honestly I enjoy YD scene more than KT-ES hahaa.

      At first I shipped YD-ES but I Whack the ship since the more I watch it I find KT-ES is pretty okay, they fit each other, and sometimes I imagine if YD kind male lead win the girl it would be too BBF haha or any other common drama where the bad guy got the girl, so this story is uncommon. It’s nice to see something new, fresh!
      I’m glad ES didn’t give any fake hope to YD even sometimes it’s kinda mean, I hope she treat him better but I’m also afraid he will love her more which mean he will hurt more T_T so the writter choise is great anyway..
      Everytime he do bad things, my heart aches and screaming, “Oh this guy don’t know how to act to the one he loves”, OH this guy really need someone who love him, he is lack of affection (YD come to me, I’ll backhug you like ES did to KT muahahaha).
      I only hope they didn’t turn YD into beast in the end haha, or maybe give him a perfect match from another cameo 😀

      So far I enjoy the drama hehe, my fave couple is YC-BN of course
      and eagerly waiting for the next episode 😉

    • to Babyboo, I’m on your side too 🙂 I seek peace but in the end we got shot down. For me, I love the show as it is and if people think what we commented is wrong in some way to them, then,what is the comment box for? Let it be..Without criticism, drama won’t be as good as it is now, debating who is better and what is good for the characters is just part of the package. It just means you’re passionate about the drama.

    Fancyclin….BUT …Heirs is not the best drama for 2013. I am a LMH fan, it’s not enough to get my vote. Heirs is his worst project…just sayin!

    November 23, 2013
    • riskha #

      I like Kdrama, im addicted to Heirs recently.
      got interested in LMH and any other goodlooking actors/actresses hahahaa
      But not really a big fans of any.
      So as LMH fan, what is his best drama so far cara? And Why is Heirs is his worst?
      Just want to know.. (^,^)

      • Tombrady's girl #

        Try City Hunter – top notch story & production, plus amazing chemistry with PMY. His acting on ep 12 is phenomenal I thought : Damn, LMH has arrived.

        LMH’s Choi Young is the bomb so I would watch Faith too. The love story is written so well; the rest of the production (directing, writing) I will leave you to judge. There are plenty of gems in this drama despite my issues with it. Watch this one too!

        I will never watch BOF again but I will watch The Heirs again for the simple fact that I can see how much LMH has grown as an actor. He’s used to playing intense characters that Kim Tan is a nice change. Subdued, subtle acting is harder to do. I’m glad he’s challenged himself with this one despite some flawed writing from KES. He’s emoting so well except for a few times I wasn’t able to connect with him.

        In the end, it is a matter of taste. Watch them all and judge. : )

        November 24, 2013
        • riskha #

          I havent watch BOF, faith n city hunter. I only watched personal taste, i thought: this LMH is damn HOT. Hahahaahaa
          I think he’s one of good actor, at his age its not easy to play 17 yo teenager with so many emotions to show. Despite of the character that has already written, his acting is great so far in heirs. At earlier episode he still like an adult to me, but recently he becomes more natural playing teenage boy.
          I will watch faith n city hunter later after heirs end. Thanks alot tombrady’s girl

          • Tombrady's girl #

            Oh man, you are gonna fall harder when you watch City Hunter & Faith. He’s even hotter in those than Personal Taste – playing 2 vastly different characters. Enjoy!

            November 24, 2013
            • riskha #

              well honestly, i haven’t watch faith coz it’s kind of serious drama?
              i like personal taste coz it was really funny, i laughed a lot!
              that gay thing, hahahaha so stupidly silly.
              and City Hunter, ugh.. even if i totally fell for his charms, i just don’t like his hairstyle on that drama (see! silly reason why i haven’t watch it yet).
              but having say that, i WILL watch it… since you say i will fall harder, how can i resist!!

              • ibu #

                Yup… faith is a must watch if you like LMH. I’ve always loved LMH in all his dramas… butI fell even more in love with him in faith. The story is a bit serious but very interesting. I’m sure you’ll enjoy as mush as I do.

                I save those two to keep my thirst for LMH after Heirs end.
                Heirs hasn’t ended yet i already feel sad. *sigh

        • Ibu #

          I am a LMH fan and I love all of his work including the ones when he was a teenager, even before BOF. But if any of you would like to watch other dramas of him, my fav is Faith (love how he’s dressed up in this drama), Personal taste (this one makes you laugh your tears out, really love this drama), City Hunter (lotsa action here, love it). I personally believe his doing a great job in the Heirs… tho KWB kinda overshadows him at times because of the character that they are playing. (I was not a fan of KWB but this drama made me like him). Nevertheless LMH is still great in this drama, he managed to make me feel KT’s emotion.

          I believe whether or not we like an actor depends on our own views or perspectives. It is something that is subjective. So let us all just get along well and enjoy the drama just for the sake of entertainment. Let’s just make only positive comments in Jooni’s campsite… otherwise it’ll be no fun here.

          Have a nice day y’all! 3 more days to go till next episode… yeay!

              There’s nothing wrong with your English !!
              I’m really addicted to this show now. I normally don’t think too much about a show I just enjoy watching and absorbing everything .

        I really cant comment whether heirs is LMHs worst project or not because all of his previous works are amazing. I have been repeatedly watching bof and personal taste. So in that context heirs MAY be da worst project out of all his amazing dramas. In other words it may be the worst out of my FAVOURITE dramas.still upto now heirs is amazing and we have 6 more episodes. So it may score even up.
        For me to enjoy a drama I dont need anything else. Just seeing LMH on screen is enough and entertaining. But heirs definitely brings more than that.

      I have to say that it was Hiers that made me a LMH fan. I couldn’t watch BOF past the first 20 minutes and probably never will just because I keep comparing it to Hana Yuri Dango. Even then, I disliked the main character in Hana Yuri Dango and I only made myself watch it because I am a big Oguri Shun fan. That being said, in comparison, LMH has grown a lot as an actor. I also feel that LMH has portrayed Kim Tan and Lee Yoon Sung more naturally than he did in his role as Choi Young and Jin Ho.

      Personally, Kim Tan is not an easy character to portray because his character growth curve is is a nice gradual one. Whereas, Young Do as a character is a classic Anti Hero character with a steep character growth and usually Anti Hero change literally overnight. If LMH continues to play very different kinds of characters, he will improve. Instead of taking on roles that will generate a lot of hype, I kinda wish he will take on small indie roles that will really challenge him because he has a lot of potential. Heck, he should even take on supporting roles because they don’t get as much commercial hype and thus it will allow LMH to actually just concentrate on his acting ability. Kim Woo Bin is very good actor but I think anti hero are easier to portray versus a character like Kim Tan, who by the way I would categorize as a reluctant Hero.

      November 24, 2013
      • prosperity #

        Exactly @nana, LMH definitely had the harder character to play, not to mention they placed him in some ugly clothes, and made his character introverted, needy, and self reflective (which could read as boring to some people) for majority of the drama. This drama might not have started out as my favorite drama for LMH, but it actually made me respect him more, because KES put him up against KWB, who plays this badass firecracker of a character, and instead of LMH overacting or over compensating to compete, he delivers his lines and scenes effortlessly, and as intended. That is the sign of someone who is not ruled by their ego, is humble, and a great human being. Another thing I will say is that even though he does not look 17, he actually plays his role most of the time, especially recently, with the essence of a 17 y o boy, I have never thought Young Do was 17, not even when he is with his friends. That is how you know LMH has what it takes.

        I hope in the future LMH picks more riveting dramas though. Because as much as I love Heirs, I do not want any more kiddy dramas for LMH in the future.

    I have some suggestion for the heirs HATERS. If u dnt like this drama pls try not to watch it. If u continue to do a thing that annoys you thats not good for your health.
    If u still watch it and don’t like it please try not to comment bad about it. Since lot of us like this drama all your comments drive us crazy and increase our BP.so its not at all good for our health. So please lets all be healthy.just change.

      don’t understand why keep watching it if u hate it.. it’s okay to criticize sometimes.
      maybe they just don’t want to admit that deep down inside they enjoy watching it *\(^o^)/*
      never take those who called ‘haters’ seriously, they just got different taste of drama & don’t know how to say their opinion in a respectful manner, maybe.

    this is my first time commenting in this blog. i had read about it in newspaper that lee min ho started another drama with park shin hye. so i searched and downloaded the series. i live in papua with slow internet connection, so it took me about 10 days to download all 14 eps. after that i watched from eps 1-14 in 3 nights since i have 2 children, i had to wait until my husband & my kids went to bed before i could have a private time alone.
    i just wanna say that i love the heirs. it will be too long to comment on young do, chan young, and everyone else, and since i was late so i just gonna focus commenting the main leads.
    i love kim tan and i love eun sang. they have weaknesses & flaws but still i love them. just like you & me, we are not perfect, so i dont expect them to be perfect heroes. i also like the corny and the cheesy part in their relationship. it reminded me when i was 18 too. when we were teenager, relationship/dating was all about corny and cheesy.
    oh and i like the rooftop kiss. i read some people have negative response to the kiss, being forcefull and all that. but i have different opinion. i like it, a lot. and im sure eun sang likes it too. i mean, i would love if my husband would forcefully kiss me everytime he wanted to shup me up. it will definitely save us from a lot of fights and cold wars.
    i also like the forehead kiss. so sweet and gentle and romantic, the way kim tan did it with his gentle and loving eyes and cupping eun sang’s head and kiss her forehead, my heart melted. well as you can see, i basically like every kissing scenes hahaha. so kim tan and eun sang, please do it many many more in the coming eps. i totally agree with kim tan that you guys are moving too slowly hahaha.
    now im eagerly waiting what kind of move or tactic kim tan will take to avoid the corporate war between him and won which their father set for them.
    and im also anxious to see what daddy kim will do to separate tan and eun sang.

    one last note: lee min ho is doing a great job portraying kim tan. my mother-in-law is gonna be so happy when the heirs airs in my country. she is a huge fan of lee min ho. she knew and watched all of his dramas. it was actually because of my mother-in-law that i become a fan of lee min ho too. she is 53 yrs old but turn into a teenager when she talking about lee min ho , always commenting how handsome he is. my husband is quite embarrased if his mother start talking like that hahaha

        How about when KT hugged ES and she found a $50 dollar bill was it from the front pocket ( there’s no pocket on his shirt) or from his pants pocket awww)) just kidding clean fun:))
