Why you should watch The Heirs

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 sorrynotsorry


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

  1. I didn’t like this show at all (hides under bed). Which is a shame because I really love Lee Min Ho. Glad you enjoyed this though.

  2. AHH!!! My all time favourite shows…not the best idea to read this post at school because I can’t stop laughing! KIM TAN!!! OH MY GOSH!!! Kim Tan’s and Eun Sang’s moms relationship though…oh my gosh!! And Lee bo na and Chan young are so cute!!!! Ahh! Everything about this show is amazing…I’m fingerling and I literally cannot speak!!!

  3. ASDFGHJKL I LOVE THE HEIRS AND THESE GIFS ARE GIVIJG ME ALL THE FEEEEEELZ. everything you said was so true and accurate and it makes me want to rewatch the show! it’s just.. SO BEAUTIFUL. and young do’s character reminds me so much of ronan from the raven boys. (just me?) i love dream high as well gahhhhh kim soo hyun <33333 (brb hardcore fangirling right now.) my favorite drama is probably pinocchio though because FEEEEEELZ

  4. I love this drama! It is one of my favorite dramas but my top favorite will always be Full House. Have you watched my love from another star? if you haven’t, you must watch it. It’s a wonderful sci-fi romantic drama and quite popular too. :D

  5. When I saw this post, I LITERALLY gasped out loud and jumped up! XD I’ve been planning on doing some sort of kdrama gif/review post in awhile but haven’t gotten around to it. Those gifs are great, by the way. It made me “relive” it! I also really like Pinocchio (with Park Shin Hye too hehe)! Hmm… I have quite a few favourites (let me consult my list first :P): Okay, since you like Dream High, I think you’d like Reply 1997 too! I loved them both a lot and the each have its own “high school” vibes and humour. Reply 1997 is really super good, so you should check it out! :D For a drama with romance, tons of humour AND action, Rooftop Prince is the best… Recommended! Now I’m off to watch some more drama!!!

  8. I love this drama too! I just rewatched it last week and this post brings back all the feels!
    You should also check out Healer, Oh My Venus and The Master’s Sun. They are some of my favorites and I rewatch them all the time because they are amazing and so different from one another. :)
