Last month I finished The Heirs, so now obviously I need to shower you all in lots of gifs hoping you’ll decide to watch it. I’d like to thank (it sounds like I’m accepting an award. THANK YOU FOR THE OSCAR) Raisa for recommending The Heirs to me, or I might have never watched it!
So what’s The Heirs about?
Kim Tan is heir to the Empire Group sent to study abroad in the U.S. In reality it’s a form of exile, as his elder half-brother back home schemes to take over the family business. While in the States, Kim Tan bumps into Cha Eun Sang, who arrived from Korea in search of her older sister. He feels himself falling for her, never realizing that she’s the daughter of his family’s housekeeper. When his fiancée Rachel Yoo arrives to bring him back to Korea, his heart is torn between love and duty.
Credits to mydramalist.com because I was too lazy to try and summarise it, also this is isn’t even half what it’s about. I mean, they don’t even mention my babies Choi Young Do and Lee Bo Na. There are so many characters and so many other storylines besides Kim Tan and Cha Eun Sang’s, it will be a bit confusing at first, but get through that confusion and keep watching, because it is definitely worth it!
So here are some reasons as to why you should watch it.
It has plenty of hilarious moments
Yet it will also break your heart
*no gifs because SPOILERS but have the tissues ready if you’re an emotional puddle of feels like me (what kind of description is that omg)*
The characters are amazing and distinctive. I swear you’ll fall in love with most of them
Like I said, there is so much more going on than just Cha Eun Sang and Kim Tan’s story. All the other characters have their own interesting storylines and relationships with each other that make the drama so much better.
AMAZING relationships, from family to friendship to romantic
Because Kim Tan and Choi Young Do (especially Young Do. You can hand him over to me Cha Eun Sang)
THEIR BROMANCE. THEIR BROMANCE GUYS. I know it doesn’t really look like much of a bromance in these gifs, but trust me haha. IT MADE ME CRY (okay so I cry pretty quickly but ssh). Now time for some Young Do appreciation.
Young Do came out to have a good time and honestly feels so attacked right now
No but seriously, he has such amazing character development
Lee Bo Na is an amazing character. She’s so adorable I love her
Lee Bo Na and Yoon Chan Young are adorable. Like seriously relationship goals
Kim Tan and Cha Eun Sang’S MOMS have the best relationship though
It’s incredibly addictive and will take up your personal life (maybe that’s a reason NOT to watch it)
I love the music, especially when I got to sing along with LOVE IS THE MOMEEEEENT
It’s just beautiful okay?
There’s so much more that I would love to discuss, but I can’t without spoiling everything!
Just trust me on this and watch it okay?
Have you seen The Heirs? Or maybe I’ve convinced you to watch it? *puppy eyes* What’s your favourite Korean drama? Mine still is Dream High!
