Recap: The Heirs Episode 16


Written before live recap

Lena Park- Only With My Heart

Smile brightly.

Don’t worry about me.

I am smiling even now.

I won’t be able to forget.

Only I need to remember.

I won’t forget.

Please smile.

Smile brightly.

I am only thankful.

I have memories with you.

I will hide them well.

And take it out alone to see.

They will give me strength when I miss you.

I will steal you away only with my heart.

I will embrace you only with my heart.

That is enough.

Don’t be hurt because of me.

Even a glance makes me cry.

I didn’t have time to translate all the lyrics, but here are the first two verses and chorus.  They make me cry when I think about Eun Sang.

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 16


Chairman Kim shows ES two airplane tickets. One ticket is for her to leave Tan right now and go where ever she wants. The other ticket will give her 2 weeks to see Tan as much as she wants. But at the end of the 2 weeks, Dad will send her where he wants. And it definitely won’t be anywhere in Korea. It will definitely be different from the U.S. and France. She can pick which ever ticket, but only one ticket will let her go up the stairs to Tan’s room.

While grocery shopping, ES’s mom is getting text messages from people she borrowed money from, thanking her for paying them back.

Back at the house, ES’s mom asks KA, “Did you give me the severance pay already?” This surprises KA- she doesn’t want ES’s mom to quit yet. She interviewed a few people today, but no one was good enough. KA gets all jealous thinking ES’s mom has already found another lady to serve. Like mother, like son. Ha! It wasn’t KA who paid back ES’s mom’s debts.

ES’s mom asks ES now- has she heard anything from the chairman. It seems he is the one that paid their debt off. ES’s mom shows ES the text messages, and ES seethes. ES’s mom becomes worried and asks ES if this has something do with Tan. ES prepares her mom for the difficult thing she has to say. We don’t hear what ES told her mom.

Getting new orders, the guards let ES go up the stairs to Tan’s room.


Tan is up in his room, listening to the news about him and remembering what Won said to him earlier. He suddenly hears a knock on the door. Tan opens the door and is surprised to see ES. He starts to ask her how she came up here, but ES quiets him. She smiles brightly and asks if she can go inside. Tan quickly pulls her in. ES lies that the guards left their positions for just a moments, and she used the opportunity because she missed him. Tan pulls her into a hug. ES repeats that she missed him a lot, and that is why she came up here.


ES apologizes to Tan, saying it seems like it is her fault he is locked up here.Tan explains it is not. He came back to this house to no longer be locked up- “Because the way to be with you is not being locked up together.” Tan continues, “Instead, you have to believe me no matter what choice I make.” He cups her face- “I only have you left now.”

Worried, ES asks what is happening to him. Tan replies, “I’m liking you.” Emotions overflowing, ES embraces Tan tightly, and Tan holds her right back. ES cries in his arms.


Won is telling Yoon what Tan said. Yoon asks if Won has no desire to understand Tan. Won explains he has seen his grandfather, uncles, and aunts fight with each other; why try  to understand when the fight is inevitable between him and Tan. Yoon explains that is why Chairman Kim is dividing the shares equally. Won retorts that the shares shouldn’t be divided equally since the skill level is different (between him and Tan).

Won asks if Yoon is considering his offer of the vice presidency of Jeguk Construction. Yoon says he will give his answer soon.

Next morning, Tan is in his room looking at the security monitor, waiting for ES. ES comes out the house, and it seems like she is just going to leave, but she turns back and writes a note for Tan to see- “I was happy to see you in my dreams too.” Out loud she says, “Because I think you’ll be watching.” She waves goodbye with a bright smile.


ES notices reporters in front of school. One of them asks her if she knows if Tan is coming to school. Before ES can answer, YD and MS come to save the day, especially with MS being his usual fabulous diva self.

Inside, ES finds her locker a mess. Someone has thrown milk inside and written all over it. YD sees this too and it upsets him, but to her face, he keeps joking around. He calls for a delivery of drinks (green tea latte cartons that Park Shin Hye endorses. Hehe. PPL.)


YD is about to throw the drink at all the lockers when ES stops him- what is he doing??? YD explains he is getting revenge for her. He figures the culprit has to be the owner one of the lockers he will ruin. ES asks, “What wrong did the others commit?” YD asks right back, “What wrong did you commit?” ES smiles. “I think I know you a bit now, Choi Young Do.” She thanks him for the thought, though, but she can’t let him waste food that way. Young Do notes, “You smile when your heart is grateful.” ES replies, “Now you know me a bit too.”


ES gives CY and BN the milk, saying YD bought it. BN wonders if YD poisoned it. ES gives BN CY’s childhood photo. She also tells them never to break up. ES apologizes to BN first before hugging CY, and the she also hugs BN. They wonder why she is like this all of a sudden. ES replies it’s just because. But we all know ES is saying goodbye one by one. Sobs.


Yoon has come to teach Tan. Yoon asks what Tan does in his room all day. Tan says he thinks bad things- 소things that will ruin all relationships.

Yoon informs Tan about Dad’s plans to send ES abroad. “I know Chairman Kim better than you, and he is more merciless as a head of Jeguk and as a father than you can imagine.”

Tan goes to see his dad, no fear in his eyes. He enters the room, says he will use the cellphone, and even though Dad tries to forbid him, Tan ignores him and calls JS for her help so he can go to school.

Dad asks if Tan is going to school just to see ES, even enlisting JS’s help. Tan replies without any hesitation, yes. And JS is helping him thanks to the stocks that dad gave him. Tan also says he has a favor to ask of dad- to never touch ES. Dad asks if Tan is threatening him. Tan replies that Dad gave him a sword that will back up this threat. “If you touch ES again, I don’t know whom I will slay with this sword.”

Inside the car, the tension is high and tight even as JS and Tan talk to each other in low, calm voices. JS warns Tan that he will have to pay her back for today, and by then, it would be to late to regret it. Tan snaps back that JS must have experienced that regret for treating him and his mother like that after she received the call from Tan today.

JS reminds Tan that they have to be appear affection in front of the reporters. Tan replies he knows. Now at school, Tan and JS put on a show for the reporters, looking happy and comfortable with each other. They have a peanut gallery looking at them and commenting, consisting of MS, BN, CY, and YS.


First thing Tan does is walk into class, packs ES’s bag and takes her out of school. They go the MS’s studio. Tan digs through ES’s stuff. He finds the plane ticket inside the pages of her book. It’s one way to Buenos Aires.

Angry, Tan asks ES, “Do you even like me? Do you even believe in me?” When ES just asks for the ticket back, he growls, “Do you want to die,” before he rips up the ticket. He is angry that ES didn’t tell him about getting this ticket. Did she come up to his room after accepting the ticket? The ticket means she can’t come back to Korea, nor can she even think about coming back. How can she smile after getting that ticket and coming up to him. “Did you smile?”

vlcsnap-2013-11-29-00h57m32s59 vlcsnap-2013-11-29-00h57m29s30

Tearfully, ES replies, “Then what was I supposed to do? I was so scared. If I leave immediately, I can’t see you. What could I do except make that choice?” Tan yells that is why she should have told him, so that he can fight dad, not her. “I lost everything. I only have you now. I can’t lose you too. Please, don’t hurt where I am not. If you do that, I will really go crazy.” Tears overflowing, ES nods her head yes.


Tan wipes her tears gently. “I’m sorry I only make you cry. I’m sorry.”

YD comes in then. He notices that ES is crying. Tan asks YD to hold ES for him, take her to school and bring her back here to the studio after. He will come back for her around eight. YD calls him crazy, since he is basically leave a sheep with a wolf. Tan says he has no time to argue, and leaves.


Alone now, YD asks ES why she is crying. She doesn’t answer so YD asks her when she will repay the debt she owes him. ES says after school, they should go eat the noodles.

Reporters take picture of Tan, Won, JS, and Dad coming together to each dinner. The most awkward dinner ever consisting of people who can’t stand to be around each other right now. See evidence below.


Dad asks JS how Won’s wife hunt is going. This surprises Won. JS replies that all she needs to do is set up a date for the girl and Won to meet. Won says he will look for one himself when time comes, but Dad keeps pushing it. And Won is powerless to say anything back.

Dad also announces that he he will call together a stockholders meeting in two weeks to put Won’s presidency position on the table. He announces the candidate for Won’s position as Yoon. Won can’t believe that even after he replaced all of Dad’s people, this call for the meeting went through. Dad is still wielding too much power, making Won look like only a puppet president. Dad reminds him that this company isn’t his anyway. He will choose between Tan and Won for the best person to run the company. He only put Won there as president because he needed someone in a hurry. Dad and JS leave.

Tan gets up to leave too, but Won tries to stop him. Unfortunately, Tan won’t listen anymore. He points out that Won doesn’t have time to be doing this right now; he’s going to have to meet a lot of people (to win over to his side), and the last person he will need to see is Tan. Tan: “Just do what you’ve always been doing. I was always last for you anyway.”


Won is angry at Yoon, wondering if Yoon was laughing at him behind his back when he offered the vice-president job, while dad offered the president. Yoon tells Won to beat dad, to protect his position. Then he will come to work as vice-president.

Tan is back at the studio to pick up ES, but no one is there. He calls ES, but YD picks up. He hangs up without telling Tan where they are- his answer when Tan asked was “In your heart?” Pfft!

Before ES can get mad that he and Tan keep picking up her calls, YD tries to get it out of her exactly why she cried. He guesses that Chairman Kim made ES kneel first in order to make Tan kneel. ES tries to deny it, but YD doesn’t believe her.

ES tries to switch the subject by asking why he ordered ddukkbokki instead of noodles. YD: “We have to eat noodles next time so I can see you again.” As always, a little embarrassed after he says these kinds of things, he tries to pass it off by playing it light. He tells her to write a memorandum that she will eat noodles with him. She easily agrees, which makes YD even more suspicious that something is up. He asks once again why she cried, and once again she won’t answer.


YD replies that he will let this pass today. He then asks if she has his number memorized. No? Then memorize his ( and Tan’s number) so she can call him when something happens. It would be better, though, if she also called just because.

ES says she wants to leave now since her mom will be worried, and YD lets her go since this will make Tan even more angry when he gets here. He sends her home in his car. Then he sits alone, with ES’s empty chair in front of him.


Tan comes, and he isn’t surprised that ES is not there. He figured she would leave, and YD would let her go. So YD asks Tan why he came, then. Tan thanks YD for coming to his house that day and also helping him escape. YD, uncomfortable any time someone is sincere to him, jokes around, wondering if Tan has another secret, like he is actually a girl. Tan smiles, and gets up. “Let’s go.”

YD calls out to Tan, “Just surrender.” It seems his dad already got to ES.  Tan replies he knows already so  YD should mind his own business. He once again says to YD, “Let’s go,” but YD just tells Tan to go first. Tan: “Get up. Don’t sit here alone.”


Back at the Kim house, KA is drinking her sorrows away on the floor. Dad is yelling at her when Tan comes in. She explains to Tan she was drinking to congratulate him becoming a major stockholder since she can’t go with him to that meeting where he will go officially appear as a major player in the company. Dad insults KA, saying she is embarrassing, a defect in Tan’s life. She retorts, “Did I make Tan myself?” Tan tells Dad to never yell at mom again. Dad is the one who made the roof of the house his mom’s sky. He won’t hold back anymore if Dad becomes more cowardly as a husband and father.

Dad rises to the challenge- what will he do if he doesn’t hold back? Tan tells Dad to not be curious about that. Because even he doesn’t know what he will do these days. He warns dad to not make him think about which enemy of his dad he will hold hands with.

ES has listened to all this crouched scared in the kitchen.

Won is knocking on HJ’s door late at night, wanting her to come out. HJ reluctantly does. Won tells her to go to the U.S. for three years. Then he will go bring her back. HJ asks why Won is telling her what to do with her life, and Won replies he is doing this so he can be part of her life. HJ yells that they can never be together, but Won begs her to listen to him; he doesn’t want her to see him reach rock bottom. He doesn’t want her to know how worthless the things he held onto while losing her. HJ, knowing that something is up, promises she won’t see. Won pulls her into a desperate hug.


ES gets a message from Tan asking where she is. She tells him she is at home, ready to sleep. Tan texts her to come out with her passport. When she does, he takes the passport from her. He also takes her to the closet, yelling at her for not being there at the studio when he said he will come get her. He wants her to listen to him, please- wait when he asks her to wait, not leave when he asks her not to leave. Before ES can finish nodding yes, Tan suddenly kisses her. At first, Tan’s kiss is desperate while Eun Sang is resistant, but they soon fall into the kiss. Tan then hugs Eun Sang, asking her to not go anywhere- “Promise me.” Eun Sang doesn’t say anything. She simply just hugs him tighter. And so does Tan. They cling onto each other with all their might in the darkness.


Next day, Tan is waiting for ES outside the house to go to school together. ES looks worried so Tan explains Dad is probably already watching, but it’s okay.

At school, R gives her report about The Great Gatsby. She jabs at ES and Tan with this report, saying that Gatsy ruins his life after falling in love with Daisy.

In the hallway, R hears girls talking about her kiss with HS. Of course the fates throw HS in her path. He’s walking down the hallway in her direction so she quickly calls him, asking him to avoid her for a while. He first jokes around with her but things get awkward when they actually do get closer to each other. Seems R is not avoided HS because of the gossip, but because she feels embarrassed around HS. Hehehe, is this the start of L.O.V.E.?


Won meets with Esther, YD’s dad, and JS, wanting them to side with him at the stockholders’ meeting. They agree. He also meets with Tan. He wants Tan to be on his side. Tan doesn’t like they way Won is not asking him but demanding it, but he will vote for Won because dad is bothering a girl he likes. He asks Won for an apartment for that girl. Won asks if it is the girl living in the maid’s room, and Tan replies yes. Won scoffs, wondering how Tan can vote for Won just because of some girl. Tan replies yes, he is planning to do anything for “some” girl. “But don’t call her ‘some’ girl. Because that girl is my everything now.”

vlcsnap-2013-11-29-02h52m57s186 vlcsnap-2013-11-29-02h52m49s111


At MS’s studio, YD is lying silently on the sofa, just looking at the band-aid that ES gave him before. MS invites YD to lunch, pointing out that YD has gotten a little thin. Dearie is worried about his friend! YD says no, claiming he has previously engagement. With who and where is certain, but the when is not. As YD leaves, MS yells at him to not go to ES’s house.

vlcsnap-2013-11-29-02h55m00s142 vlcsnap-2013-11-29-02h55m13s18

Yup, that is where YD is. He paces back and forth, waiting for ES, having set no actual date. She doesn’t return home, so YD finally leaves, only to see her at the convenience store. She sitting outside alone at the tables again.

YD takes off his jacket and puts it on her. He tells her to stop sleeping out in the open since the weather has gotten cold. ES learns that YD has seen her do this three times. The first time was the day when she was sleeping on the table and little kids came around yelling. He got into a fight with them trying to protect ES, but ES just left without even looking back. ES smiles and apologizes. YD: “Forget it. I normally like being the only one knowing.”

vlcsnap-2013-11-29-03h16m56s242 vlcsnap-2013-11-29-03h16m59s17

ES says YD is a bad guy and also a good guy. She wishes she knew that earlier. YD says it’s not too late, but ES turns him down again, saying she just wants him to just let her pass him by. She instructs him to be nice to the next girl he likes- not trip her to hold her hand, not threaten her to eat together. ES takes off YD’s jacket. “It was only for a moment, but I was warm because of you. Thank you.”

ES gets up to leave, but YD pulls her back down, pleading desperately, “Don’t go.” ES claims she has a date with Tan, but YD knows that Tan is at the stockholders’ meeting. ES continues to lie that she is going to see Tan just for a bit before he goes to the meeting, but YD sees through her. He explains he has done a lot of parting and running away, and the look on her face doesn’t look like a face that is going to see someone; it’s a face that is going to lose someone.

vlcsnap-2013-11-29-03h15m30s155 vlcsnap-2013-11-29-03h15m23s82

YD asks her what is it. Did she get kicked out of Tan’s house? Is she moving? Ah,Young Do, so close and yet so far!!!! ES smiles, saying she is going to move soon; she’s been looking for a place these days. ES leaves, and YD can’t hold her back. The snow continues to fall as ES walks away, becoming just a girl who passed by him.


Won gives Tan the key to the apartment, and keeps reminding Tan how to vote today. Tan is not even surprised now: “You still don’t believe me.”

Won warns Tan to not put his guard down. Dad will find ES. Tan says he knows that, but he is doing this to show him. “During the past 18 years, I loved you and dad a lot. But that love has ended now. And the only thing left for me is that child.”

Tan faces Won: “So I am not going to care who I am, what my birth is, and how old I am. I will use my everything to protect her. It’s a warning to never touch her.”

vlcsnap-2013-11-29-03h26m48s20 vlcsnap-2013-11-29-03h24m29s170

ES is window-shopping, and YD is following her around secretly in his car. ES sees a couple buying sneakers together. She also remembers what Tan’s dad said to her that because of her Tan has lost Rachel and his family, and has become the laughing stock of the world. “How far will you ruin Tan?”

YD is still watching her when Tan shows up to back hug ES. Tan and ES look so happy together, but YD is expressionless. He quietly drives away.

vlcsnap-2013-11-29-03h31m16s142 vlcsnap-2013-11-29-03h31m37s99 vlcsnap-2013-11-29-03h31m18s164

ES and Tan have bought couple shoes. And they sit in the café smiling and happy together.


Tan shows ES the apartment, and tells her it’s hers. ES asks if the chairman knows. Tan says he will soon, but he will make sure Dad doesn’t touch her. ES asks if this is Tan’s way of helping ES walk over all thresholds. Tan says this is a start. “I’m sorry it’s clumsy, it’s this way, and it’s one-sided. I’ll become better. I will try hard for a way that will be closer to what you can understand.”


ES notices the dream catcher hanging in the window, and she starts to tear up. Tan asks her when she will move in, and she says tomorrow. She tells him to go the meeting; she will stay a bit longer to take pictures to show her mom.

Eun Sang sees Tan to the door. They wave to each other goodbye so Tan comments that they seem like a married couple acting like this. ES says, “You’re the one who said we look like a married couple,” and she gives him a peck on the cheek.


This is a pleasant surprise for Tan. They wave each other goodbye again, and Tan leaves with a smile on his face. Behind the closed door, Eun Sang breaks down sobbing.


At the meeting, voting starts for whether Won will be fired or not. The results are: 3% yay, 95% nay, 2% abstain. So Won is not going to get fired. But the results are strange; one would have expected there to be more of a battle. Turns out Dad was playing Won and Tan just to teach them a little lesson of humiliation. Won through having to basically grovel at other people’s feet, to show his desperation to them in order to keep his position. For Tan, showing exactly how young and powerless he is. ES left Korea an hour ago.

KA reads the letter from ES’s mom apologizing for leaving. KA cries. Tan runs in. He finds ES’s room empty. He goes to her café- she quit. He searches the school and her locker, but it is empty. Tan slams the door shut, the tears starting to rise. Tan looks for ES everywhere, but one one knows where she is, and she is nowhere to be found.


Tan ends up back at the empty apartment, the last place he saw Eun Sang, smiling back at him. He remembers what Dad said to him after the meeting- “Don’t forget this day. You lost that child today as the consequence of the sword you wielded.” Tears start to fall silently out of Tan’s eyes first, but as the sobs rise in his chest, Tan pants for breath and he falls on his knees. He clutches his chest as he cries.


No Preview for Episode 17


Eun Sang was only given two choices, and both included not seeing Tan. Except one gave her a chance to be happy with him for just a bit longer. She chose the second option, wanting to be with Tan just a bit more. She gave up her freedom and the future that Jeguk High gave her for two more weeks with Tan. But Tan finds out, and he pleads with her to trust him, to only listen to him, and to stay by his side. Eun Sang can’t say yes and she can’t say no, his dad threatening her but her heart desperately reaching out to Tan. So Tan tries to hold on even tighter to Eun Sang, she like a dream that won’t be caught.

No matter how many times someone tells you it’s not your fault, when you love that person, how can you not keenly feel his pain? How can you ignore how his family is falling apart? How can Eun Sang ignore Tan losing his father and brother? How can she bear the guilt of already dragging him down this far? If Tan’s dad were to just disown Tan for disobeying him, things would be easier, wouldn’t it? But his dad keeps pulling Tan in even more, using him as a pawn in his chess game of business management. Tan says he will give his all to protect Eun Sang, but exactly how much is that all? Will it be enough? Will it be too much?

So Eun Sang runs away. To protect Tan from further harm. She runs away from both Tan and Tan’s dad, protecting Tan and protecting herself. Tan’s dad does not know the airplane ticket to Buenos Aires has been torn, but without a passport and ticket, Eun Sang can only remain in Korea, hiding from both Tan and Tan’s dad. She has left Tan, resolved to living with just the few memories they have created together.

I thought I would cry for Eun Sang this episode, not Tan. But thanks to the ending scene, my heart bled more for Tan. Tan could feel it throughout the whole episode- Eun Sang drawing away from him, her hesitation, her fear, and her concern. So he grabs onto her more desperately, but in one moment of arrogance that he could protect her, he lost her. And so he cries. Not just because he lost her but because he couldn’t keep her with him. His everything wasn’t enough to keep him by his side. He is but a child who foolishly thought he could fight his dad.

But is he only a child? Won is stunned by Tan’s declaration that he will do anything for the person he loves. Something that Won could never bring himself to do. He couldn’t even bring himself to tell Hyun Joo how much he loves her, yet here is Tan telling him so boldly how much he loves Eun Sang. Tan is willing to give up everything for the one thing that is important, but Won is unable to. He could never gather the courage to ask Hyun Joo to stay by his side and to believe that he will protect her no matter what.

So Tan is on his knees right now, just like his father wanted. But what did Tan say to Young Do before? “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.” Tan, all I can hope is that you and Eun Sang do this together.

        December 2, 2013
      • ejc #

        Ooorrrr it could be that es and kt passed by the same store/spot but on different time? Kdramas are fond of flashbacks so it must be that Es is reminiscing about her dreamcatcher and kt about the time he followed es.from the movie theater to the store…

        December 2, 2013

        I dont think they are passing by each other i think it’s a scene when the directer will make them in the same place but not in the same time it’s like they missed each other , maybe ES passed by before living and KT passed by remembering her.

        December 2, 2013
  6. Joonni! Have you read the written preview on a website where HEIRS fans posted it and saw it from another website? I’m not sure if its true that’s why I was asking. It says Mr. Yoon was ased by ES to help her hide from KT’s father wrath in knowing she will break her promise to him to go to Argentina. Besides she don’t want to go there, she don’t have a passport, and she can’t leave her Mom alone because who knows what will KT’s do to black mail her again. It’s also written that she was being searched all over the city and country with the help of Won and YD. Which is so surreal to KT’s cause everyone hates KT’s father motives about his sons.

    Today I subscribed to dramafever just to watch it with no adds over and over. Still waiting for some preview of episode 17. The fan pictures don’t lie, they indeed found ES’s mom and ES in a rural beach town of Korea. I’m very glad and relieved to know she didn’t go abroad.

    Waiting and Hoping for the best Heirs FINALE! Four more episodes! Jooni I hope both of them will partner again, they both look good together! 😉

    Heirs Aja Aja Fighting! 😉

    Joonni! The pictures of a Heirs fan suggest that KT and ES is at the same location where ES bought the dream catcher. I felt sad that the button picture looks like they are passing by and leaving separate directions? Is this part of the future episodes?

    Any thoughts from you and the viewers of your blog is highly appreciated!

      I saw that too, they just walk past each other again, I still quite happy that tan found es, that dream catcher scene just broke My heart again… My god, bad feeling…

          ya…if it is good spoiler…we still can keep our hope high…but this heart breaking spoiler…my god…speechless…

          I also like some mad women, happy to see Eun Sang still in Korea, Tan and YD had found her…

          Got upset when they just pass by each other with a word…

    I dont think they are passing by each other i think it’s a scene when the directer will make them in the same place but not in the same time it’s like they missed each other , maybe ES passed by before living and KT passed by remembering her .

      I agree with you ,I don’t see Tan passing by ES just like that without speaking with her.they aren’t in Tan’s house anymore ,so they don’t have any reason to pass by each other because of daddy Kim.I don’t see any reason for them to do so.

        I agree with Alina I just think that it’s then passing by places where they’re reminded of each other and thinking of each other, basically almost meeting but missing each other by minutes.

      I agree with all of you! Actually strange enough when I first saw that picture with them passing by each other I didn’t think of it as a real scene until I read some comments that they may be ignoring each other and what not…. I don’t think there’s a possibility of that happening, if it does then I’ll be surprised but I don’t see a Tan who would just walk pass ES like nothing is happening, that’s not like him and ES also, I don’t think she would do that, unless they had a conversation and ended things permanently which I highly doubt!

      I also think it will be one of those scene when you see both of them at the same place but at different times.

      Waiting for this episode has been a true torture, it feels like hundred years away!

    I don’t know what to make of all the BTS pics. It’s like trying to piece together a puzzle but you don’t have a guide of how the final picture should look like. So, you’re left randomly trying to put pieces together trying to make sense of things. One minute I feel happy because it seems KT and ES are at the same place the next minute I see a pic of KT and ES passing by each other and I want to scream of frustration. SBS you are like daddy Kim evil but undoubtedly very smart, no preview but realizing that photos from fans would be posted that ultimately would makes go crazy with anticipation.
    I just saw a pic of KT’s mom with daddy Kim’s spy (the one that takes the pics) so does that mean he also found ES? There was a spoiler on soompi (again, I don’t know how accurate it is) that KT asks ES to return to Seoul with him but she says no. YD tells her that now KT has lost everything. There was also a pic of YD standing at what seemed like a noddle restaurant. Will he finally be able to have noddles with ES? Then there was a fan account stating that KT and ES were having dinner at a restaurant. But then there was pics of KT in his school uniform back at school (were these old pics?). Argh the wait is driving me crazy.
    I’m still hopeful that although the angst will continue for a bit KT and ES will reunite and decide to fight together. I just hope that this happens by the end of ep 17 or by the beginning of ep 18. I don’t won’t the separation to drag on too long, especially because we have so few eps left.

      totally agree with u raindrop1, I was like pulling hair when I see they JUST PASS BY EACH OTHER!! -_- the wait is driving me crazy too…I got instant mood swing whenever I saw post on BTS

    This is what i found about the preview :
    Kdrama the heirs episode 17 Video preview Updating… Eun Sang manages to escape the fate of going to Buerno Aires and live in Korea at her mom’s hometown with the help of Chanyoung’s Dad ( sec. Yoon ) . Tan looks for Eun Sang desperately.Tan’s Mom feels sad for her son and asks about Eun Sang’s whereabouts with the help of Kim Won. Tan’s Mom tells Tan that Eun Sang is in Kangwondo and he goes to find her!!!!! >>

    December 2, 2013
    • @OUAFA Thanks for informing us about the written preview. It’s good to know everyone is on the same page in finding ES and her Mom. If ES truly loves KT why does she needs to keep hiding if KT found him? There is only four episodes left, now is the best time to inform Chairman that he can have all the riches he got but promise to leave ES and KT alone. They don’t deserve to be treated this way cause they are still young. Why can’t he just let them enjoy their youth and have fun being together without prejudice? Money is not the only matter that makes someone happy, its the caring and sharing of love and devotion in a family that counts most in life.

      Keep us always informed OUAFA! Joonni! Will surely be happy to know that you insights are very reliable and useful. 😉

  14. Maybe it’s good that we don’t have the preview….that way the episode will be more surprising….

    okay…I was just saying that….I’m soooo eager for the preview!!!!! 😉

    December 2, 2013
  15. wow.. nearly 800 comments here 🙂 Was reading the heir thread at soompi and some veiwers were very mad at ES for leaving KT without really understanding what made her leave in the first place. They should be mad at daddy Kim instead. Anyway, can’t wait for Wed.. at the same time dreading the time when Heirs ends (Faith all over again.. *sigh*)

    December 2, 2013
    • I think they should be mad at eun sang , even if she was forced , I mean who is he ? a police ? or what he can’t just tell anyone to leave the country !! she acted like a scary cat , while she could have fighted with kim tan and trust him !! so annoying and another thing , she knew that she is in a love triangle between young do and kim tan and she kept on talking to young do and hanging out with him !!!!!! she

      December 2, 2013
      • Macoy #

        I think there is reason to be mad at ES, she lies to his face, she doesn’t trust him. I understand she is afraid and she doesn’t want to be the cause of all his problems, but she continues to cause problems. And she knows the problems between YD and KT and continues to go around with YD knowing it bothers KT and gives YD hope. I understand it is a drama and that the writer is trying to keep the suspense, but she chose KT already. I have been so disappointed by KDramas endings in the past and this one looks like it is headed down the same path. Seems like KT is in his 100% and ES is 50/50, she doesn’t do anything to fight for him. I love the KT ES couple, but this back and forth is killing me.

          Its not ES fault ..its KES fault for writing as such ,I think if ES have her own idea ,she would have waited in that apartment waiting for KT to have a wonderful day together ….hahaha…love all of you very passionate with the Heirs make me smile with happiness thinking I am not the only one is going insane..

    Hi Joonni, big super thanks for all your hard work in writing up these recaps. I love reading esp. since your reviews are gr8 to read and makes it easier to understand the drama when it is finally up. I was determined to wait till all the eps were out to watch it but as you can see it didnt work. Never have I been glued to my computer in refreshing the Google search for updates on Heirs. Obessed much lol!

    Tuesday already… And this is definitely no preview of ep 17 what so ever…
    Going more and more crazy in waiting and got no interest in watching monday-tuesday drama..
    Sorry guys.. I’m just blabbing out here cos don’t know what to do while waiting..

    Some news said that fans from all over country came on set just to see a glimpse of LMH. Even from US and Chille.. And a pair of mother and daughter fans come together… How sweet..
    How excited they are when they can see LMH in life..
    And what i heard also the fans are cooperative not disturbing the shoot.
    I think they went crazy only the time LMH passed by them to swith for location shoot.
    Sigh…. I love my country so much, but sometimes i’m wondering why my country don’t have Korean cute boy like LMH…

            @prosperity, Yes, very exciting. This bits of news is the only thing helping me keep my sanity. It def gives me something to look forward since I have not idea exactly what we will see in the next ep.
            Of course I hope and truly believe that we hopefully will get some good scenes (happy) scenes once KT and ES reunite.
            The only reason I’m happy that tomorrow is Tuesday is because it gets me one day closer to Wednesday. Although of course I would prefer for tomorrow to be Wednesday but I’m trying to take a glass half full approach to the waiting.

      Lucu you just love him nothing to explain…I fell in love with him because he kissed my favourite actress with passion and no one have ever kissed her in any drama like that..because almost all fan of K drama call her deer eyed whenever she is kissed…whatever LMH did ,its just great.
