Lee Min-ho in new drama from star writer Kim Eun-sook

Lee Min-ho! Back in a drama! From “rom-com queen” writer Kim Eun-sook! So many feelings to feel! Don’t forget to breathe!

This is quite the power hookup, as far as big names go — Kim Eun-sook dramas are huge hits almost automatically, with A Gentleman’s Dignity and Secret Garden being her two most recent offerings. Perhaps the bigger accomplishment is that her dramas aren’t “merely” popular; they often have that extra little kick that make them pop-culture buzz projects, whether it’s due to a particular line of dialogue or a recurring joke or a blue sequined tracksuit. (Hand-stitched in Italy!)

This drama is titled (a little awkwardly) He Who Wishes To Wear the Crown, Endure Its Weight: Heirs. (I hope it’ll just go by Heirs in the way that the long version of Nice Guy’s title was only used on posters and promos.) There’s very little information available about the concept or story; we merely have writer Kim’s assurances that she is creating the hero just for Lee Min-ho, to suit him perfectly. Considering how her male leads have historically been very memorable, I have no doubt we’re in for an interesting role here.

I’ll admit that I’m not personally super excited about Kim Eun-sook’s work (I have major love-hate relationship with her shows), but I do think that having her name attached to a drama means it’s very likely going to be a fizzy, banter-filled, slick and glossy romantic comedy that audiences just love to eat up, which appeal to a wide age range of viewers, whether teenaged or ajumma-aged or older (hey, grandmas love romance too, right?). And I can definitely get onboard Lee Min-ho being in another romantic comedy.

As for Lee Min-ho… well, he’s Lee Min-ho. You know, I’ll call a spade a spade: Faith finally opened my eyes to the cracks in his acting facade, whereas previously I’d sincerely believed he had once-in-a-generation phenom potential. Now I’ll concede he is a pretty good actor for his age and experience level, but not without some obvious limitations, who has some work to do to upgrade to the next level of his craft. That said, Lee Min-ho does possess a rare spark that lives regardless of technical skill, and he may still be a once-in-a-generation actor in a pop-culture sense — damn, he is popular. It’s his special It Factor that makes him so exciting to watch… and no, the beauty doesn’t hurt.

Directing is Kang Shin-hyo, who worked on Tazza and Midas. Heirs will be 20 episodes long and plans to air on SBS later this year.

I stopped watching the writer's last drama at ep.2 because I felt it wasn't as cracktastic as SG.

Re: LMH's acting in Faith - I really blame the director for that...for every little problem in Faith, it was the director's fault. ;) Oh yeah, the write too because I heard she changed a lot of things in the drama. Just glad that the romance & chemistry with KHS was great. Hope this time, we get a good director too.

*squeals again* It's LMH! In a rom-com!!!! Yaaaay!

I also have a love/hate relationship with Kim Eun Sook's works: I adored City Hall, I still watch it when I am feeling out of sorts with the current state of kdramas, but SeGa had some issues and I hated AGD with the power of a thousand burning suns.
I like it best when she does strong female characters - or ones that show a lot of growth - and male characters that have a GOOD REASON for their jerkitude (because they are always jerks).
I'm not sure what she will do with Lee Min Ho - he actually seems a bit nice and fluffy compared to most of her heroes.

"Some issues"?

SG exemplified the WORST of K-dramas - cliché-filled story line and dialogue, stereotypical one dimensional characters, supporting characters who really had nothing to do and were just "filler," storylines that went nowhere and were inexplicably dropped w/ no resolution, subpar to bad acting, etc.

For me it's the opposite: I LOVE this writer and her work but I strongly dislike Lee Min Ho's acting. He is very limited especially in dramatic scenes. He's no Hyun Bin that's for sure.....sigh

I think you are right. he did exactly what he was told to do. thing is, if you tell him anything, he will do it. if you tell him to out-do himself, he will. he is like the "absolut Boyfriend" guy. just give however outrageous command, he can still do it. but if you give mediocre guiding...

but no, I cannot call him mediocre. anything but that.

what I think gives him his "spark" is this.....honesty? sincerity? and there is no ... you know, there is no fluffy pride, he is not the type of actor who is always self-aware, like "I am the best!". He is modest.

Just curious...

What cracks does everyone see regarding his acting and what do you feel he does well...outside of that "IT factor" that I absolutely agree he's got.

Thanks!

In my case what I noticed the most is that he needs good directing. If he does not get it you can tell by the strength in the performance, it weakens, it is by no means bad, it just looses its punch and it gets harder for the audience (i.e me) to connect with his character.

And the It Factor thing, is that you can't look away, even if the acting lost its punch you just can't look away. Its not the pretty/ hotness, yes the guys hardly come hotter and handsomer than that, but handsome man in k-ent there are plenty. He has some magnetism, or something that just pulls you in.

And I know that a sound like a crazy fan, but while I may be his fan, I'm not the type that squeals and thinks 'oppa is perfect', cause God know couldn't finish Faith.

I agree about the need for good directing... But in Faith's case the directing was so outstandingly bad I almost hate to put any responsibility on LMH. His strength is in his subtlety (little twitches of reaction, etc.) and that director didn't let any subtlety through. (There were seriously times when it was like the director thought, "This calls for an emotional response! Quick! Film the back of his head!")

The actors who did alright picked up on the director's lack and went big and it seemed like, to me, LMH couldn't adjust, didn't have the experience or confidence to find his character on his own and bring it forward with a vengeance. So he kind of... faded.

It might have been different if he'd been doing a comedy and could go silly (like in BOF -- not a comedy but the cha [Read more]

Thanks Betsy Hp! I've wondered for a long time what people were referring to. I heard "flaws" and "bad directing" a bunch of times, but your post makes sense of those comments.

One of the upsides and downsides of needing to rely on subtitles is that interpreting the acting is a bit like the experience of reading a book. Unless the acting is particularly assertive, it's possible to 'read' pretty much anything into the performance that you want. (Closest analogy that I can think of: a book is always better than the movie that's based on it.) So when people say 'the performance was flat' lacks helpful context. It leaves me thinking: do they mean Keanu Reeves flat, Brad Pitt flat, or *insert name of any top dramatic actor* in a troubled project flat?

It helps to have someone take [Read more]

His acting sometimes just feels a bit flat?

I don't know, I'd have to go rewatch his stuff to be more specific. :-P

I think he was perfect for City Hunter, but I dropped Faith after like 5 episodes, Personal Taste was okay but nothing amazing. Didn't get far with Boys over Flowers (the Japanese version & Matsujun beat the K one hands down IMO).

Unfortunately, LMH doesn't even do anything for me in the looks department (he's fine looking, but not exactly my type).

I might try this though - pending for details on the script. I've only watched Kim Eun-sook's Secret Garden, which did have me hooked but also had me shaking my head at times (Binnie and Ha Ji-won made all the difference though).

I think we all like him best when he gets out of his shell of a glossy Flower boy and shows us some amazingly raw and real emotions , and this is most certainly his X factor. He lets us see "beneath his beautiful". And yes,Javabeans, the beauty doesn't hurt at all. The guy' is phenomenaly photogenic.

Have you ever noticed, ladies , that LMH is always at his best towards 5-8th episodes of the dramas , when the main conflict unfolds, then gradually he loses the mojo. This was especially true in Faith ( my dear god, this could be his best drama, if written, directed and filmed in a proper way).
LMH's speciality is dramatic acting, he is not good when too nice and fluffy. I miss Pu Chai, and the wild general Choi Young.

Hello Waiting,

I really love your question and I would love to answer it, which I will hopefully today (tonight, DB time) or over the weekend (I have to go and deal with real life :-( ). Thank you for asking for our opinions and for being interested in what we see (in this case regarding LMH) and why we see it that way. I have done the same thing, asking questions about directing, and acting in the past, on Open Thread.

So, if you remember to check back here over the weekend, my answer will hopefully be posted. Please let us know what you think as well. Have a wonderful weekend.

Problem with this list is most are better actors then Lee Min-ho and I hate to see any of them play second fiddle to a an actor just because he is more popular especially Song Joong-ki and Kim Soo-hyun. Lee Min-hoo has a long way to go before he gets to their acting level.

I dont see LMH taking anything less than the lead role in the future. I think his popularity is way too big for him to step back or share the spotlight with another actor even if the other actor is the talented Song Joong-ki.

KSH is not as overrated as LMH in my opinion. I'm still ticked that he won the daesang award over 2 amazing veteran actors (Shin Ha-kyun and Han Suk Kyu) but I cant deny that he has grown A LOT as an actor. After watching him took a small role in Giant and I was impressed and said to myself, this kid is gonna make it big someday and he did it. Same thing with Song Joong-ki after watching him in Sungkyunkwan Scandal.

I think LMH wasn't ready for a sageuk. I think he did Faith because of the star writer Song Ji-Na and PD Kim Jong-Hak. They have a reputation [Read more]

I agree here. What can be more horrible than this combo? Or no, did LMH decide to go all commercial and make some big bucks before he goes to the army?
I thought he was into good acting. Given that he likes Leo Di Caprio.
If these rumors are true, then it seems like he wants to cater to the asian market now. Probably this drama is the same case as the Love Rain- the investors dictated the writing.

I hope to God that idols aren't cast; and I say that as a Krystal fan (as she's "supposedly" one of the females being considered) because I want to see her work to distinguish herself more in supporting roles instead of making an undeserved and premature jump to leading lady, which is a surefire way to garner antis.

YOONA and LMH is just.... a VISUAL COUPLE for me. An ad campaign for them is enough. Besides, Yoona has not yet impressed me with her acting. No offense to her fans, I mean she's really pretty and obviously the camera loves her pretty face. But her acting is just..okay but not enough for me to keep watching her drama.

And here it goes... PARK MIN YOUNG, another pretty pretty. I liked her in Sungkyungkwan Scandal but the rest of her dramas, she's just...meh. I don't know if i'm the only one but i'm not really into her in City Hunter.

I like the idea of KIM SO EUN. She rocked her princess role which is extremely hilarious and sweet in Horse Doctor. Given that KSE is really charming, I think her charm really fits in a rom-com.

But I trust that writer and I would follow her in anything. Saying that I'm excited is an euphemism.
If there is one thing that I love with KES, it's that way she has of molding her characters for the person cast (it's mostly true for the men, a little less for the ladies). I can totally see her doing a grilling session on LMH: "What are you good at? What are your weaknesses, what are your hobbies, your habits, your friends..." And then we will find all that incorporated in his character.
Basically we are almost in April and HEIRS will be aired this summer: Everyone has enough time to prepare quietly (no pressure guys ^^). I'm wondering who will be cast as LMH's partner? I would like to [Read more]

So sorry to see anyone feel this way about Shinhye because I really like her a lot. Hope that in some future projects she is able to change your views about her. Meanwhile, lets hope we enjoy the drama with whoever is finally chosen.

Sick of her? What a heavy word to say. She's not even considering this one. Why make a negative comment? Don't worry cos she's considering taking up another drama that best suits her. And I hope will showcase her potential as an actress.

And as for getting sick of her, well, I'm looking forward to her dramas and projects. She deserves it.

As for the drama, I hope the script is good and the leading actress has chemistry with LMH. Good luck!

*Hyperventilating... forgot to heed.. your.. warning.. to.. breathe! LMH! Lee.Min.Ho. 'nuff said.

If the rumours are true and they assemble a new f4... I vote for Jung Il-woo and Kim Bum (pleezzz!!!) with Kim Woo Bin, Jung Soon or Lee Jong-seok.

For a leading lady, I wish for only one... YEH! Definitely NO idols please!

YEH all the way. She will have explosive chemistry with LMH.

I think her bubliness(not sure if that's the correct word) will complement his shy character perfectly, and she's not short.

I don't know what would be worse - to have a stiff female like GHS or PSH, or to have YEH but have the story be some high school drama so no real kisses. Sigh.

For me Kim Eun-sook is hit or miss, I loved Secret Garden, On Air, City Hall, ans Lovers in Paris, but I've been indifferent to everything else she's written. As for Lee Min Ho I didn't like Faith and I'm the only person on earth who didn't like City Hunter, so I've yet to be impressed.

Who's going to be his leading lady?

Personally I'd like it to be Im Joo Eun or Han Groo, cause they're both awesome and currently free.

So from another site that posts up translations of media articles, it sounds like this is a high school drama? But isn't Minho a bit old to be playing a high school student? Hmmmm.

And with a high school setting I think it's most likely we will get a young actress opposite him, or an idol. Rumors are Krystal from f(x) and Jiyoung from KARA are being considered for a lead role. So hmmm. If they're going to cast an idol, I hope they at least cast one who has experience and can act.

I hope it'll be a university/college setting instead of high school. We rarely have dramas with that setting.

Please NOT A HIGH SCHOOL drama for LMH, AGAIN. I mean, he already had this mature roles in Personal Taste and City Hunter then had this role in Faith which is really far from a high school boy. Just the thought of jumping into a high school boy AGAIN is just... WEIRD.

In terms of her potential leading lady, I hope she's good enough for LMH. I mean, her popularity must match LMH's status and has good dramas under her belt. And let's add the age gap, I hope she's not too old for him (will not exceed 3 years older). I'm thinking about YOON EUN HYE or HAN HYO JOO or MOON CHAE WON or SHIN MIN AH will be a great choice.

As for the second leads, rising stars is a good choice! KIM WOO BIN and KIM SO EUN perhaps.

AND STRICTLY NO IDOLS! I HOPE.

Aww too bad. Because with the looks of it, what I picture is "Heirs" is going to be like, he's a son from very rich family and the heir of big company. He will be that "popular guy" in their school, that playboy and bad boy type just like the lead guy from Secret Garden and A Gentleman's Dignity. And then... there, he will meet his fist love. Huh, sounds more like of Boys Over Flowers season 2.

And besides does he look too old for a high schooler? And I bet he will be paired with some noona A-lister actress because it seems Kim Eun Sook only works with A-list actresses such as Ha Ji Won, Kim Ha Neul, Kim Sun Ah etc.

Kim Eun-sook's "romcoms" may be popular, but if "Secret Garden" is a prime exemplar, they aren't well written.

I think Secret Garden works overall (and I think the actors and their intensity is to thank for that for a good part), but I'd agree, I don't think it's is a superbly written drama. There are some holes and some dialogue just made no sense to me at all.

That said, I couldn't stop watching – it sort of hooks you.

lmao i love Kim Eun-sook dramas, they so addictive, so i'm watching this.

I just wanted her to write better female characters, they all good on paper but end up being kinda beige (although she wrote 'City Hall' which Kim Sun Ah's character was great), but basically her dramas are a vehicle to male actors.

City Hall was the only drama that she wrote that I really enjoyed. I never finish watching SG or AGD.

So true about her dramas being vehicles for male actors! Because of that, I tend to forget that she wrote City Hall, where Kim Sun Ah really shined.

I hope in this drama, the female lead is the one who gets all the lovable quirks and quotable lines.

I didn't finish Secret Garden or Gentleman's Dignity too because they were so dragging but I do think the writer is very romantic with her writing. I finish all LMH dramas so I think with him on board, I will watch this drama fully.

I'm very excited for a Lee Min Ho - Kim Eun Sook combo.

LMH is never that really great actor to me. He got his strength and weakness but what makes me have special affection for him is his 'IT' factor that could probably be his great charisma. I just hope he doesn't become too cautious with his look when acting. It works in City Hunter And Personal Taste because it fit his character but not in Faith. I love him even when I didn't find him handsome at all in Boys Over Flower. So if he wants real recognition as an actor, that is what I think the hindrance that he should get over with.

Anyway, like LMH, KES is not a perfect writer as well. But their strength is what makes people strongly attracted to them/their work regardless of the flaws they have. KES's drama tends to drag a lot b [Read more]

You know, I sometimes wish that Kim EunSook would team up with some other good writer(s) who is/are good at handling story plot-lines. If that happens, we might get a totally Daebak story with strong, quirky, memorable characters and a logical, well-thought out, intriguing plot. Wouldn't that just be drama paradise? Sort of like Reply 1997 or School 2013, with that famous Kim EunSook crack factor.

Hopefully this drama's PD will bring out the amazing Lee Min-ho that Faith's PD nearly failed to do. After all, a good director will help bring out the best of even the best actors while simultaneously hiding/controlling their limits. The bad directors just let all the pieces fall where they may.

He lacks range, always cast in similar roles aside from Faith (which he sucked in). I know everyone here loves him but frankly, I find him very overrated.

Not true. I did not feel anything for LMH in BOF but his acting in City Hunter caught my eye. It was his role in CH that got me interested in him not his looks. His acting was excellent in CH. Looks was secondary.

I agree. I think he is overrared, and most of it is due to his looks.

LMH doesn't do anything for me... I also cannot get this IT factor people are talking about here, he is a pretty boy (not my taste but I admit he is a pretty boy) but I find LMH very Bland...

And I also didn't like Secret Garden... Unless the drama be really a crack drama or cast one actor I really love, I won't watch this.

LMH is overrated and so are some of his dramas so...

I already fear that this drama will win DB drama polls at the end of the year as : Best drama, best leading actor, best couple and ect.

LMH is decent and can be good in some scenes (like City hunter he got some good scenes there, but he isn't amazing like people make him be)
