Choi Jin-hyuk to play Lee Min-ho’s brother in Heirs

Welp, Heirs just gets better and better. Confirmations are in for Choi Jin-hyuk, who has signed on to join the cast of SBS’s Heirs, starring Lee Min-ho and Park Shin-hye, due out this fall. The actor is currently enjoying his first big buzzed-about role as Seung-gi’s Gumiho Daddy in Gu Family Book, and now he’ll be headed straight to the next big buzz project of the year. More Choi Jin-hyuk is always a good thing, rain or shine, but it’s great to see him on the rise.

The next drama from star writer Kim Eun-sook (A Gentleman’s Dignity, Secret Garden) and PD Kang Shin-hyo of Tazza and Midas will be a 20-episode trendy drama about uber-rich high-schoolers, said to be Gossip Girl-esque. Lee Min-ho plays the lead, a high school student named Kim Tan, and Choi Jin-hyuk will play his older half-brother, Kim Won. The hyung will be thirty-one in the drama, so that makes him the only member of the cast playing older than his real age. I’m more worried about everyone else playing teenagers, but whatchoo gonna do?

Choi Jin-hyuk’s character will be a bright young executive who runs his family’s giant conglomerate. He’s (obviously) rich, but is also accomplished and capable, and basically perfect. That can only mean Lee Min-ho will be his opposite, and be imperfect in every way. I’m not too thrilled about the chaebol heir exec type for Choi Jin-hyuk, just because he’s played that role a lot, but this show isn’t exactly going to be doing new things (*coughBoysOverFlowerscough*). It’s just hopefully going to be doing old tricks in new and better ways.

Heirs airs Wednesdays and Thursdays in October.

LMH will be this 19 yrs old school boy in this drama. Dude, are you kidding me.

Maybe the plot will give us a twist like 19 years old Kim Tan will get into a closet and come out as 29 years old guy who will take away the company from his evil brother.. Hah.

Lol seriously. There should be an age limit as to when actors should stop playing high school students. Kim Woo-bin will again play one. Sigh what can you do. Lee Jong-suk too.

the only thing i'm interested about this drama is the scriptwriter. i'm okay with choi jinhyuk, but feeling like banging my forehead to the wall for the 2 leads. seriously?? at least pair lee minho with someone who can actually act so he just have to be there looking cute and good and let the other lead do all the acting part. and the same way for park shinhye. i wonder why those dramagods/goddess love flatface actors so much. take gong yoo and hyun bin. they don't actually superwell in their acting, but they can pull us deep into whatever roles the play. i've seen enough eye candies, so i think i will skip this one. too bad, the writer's sega and agd are on my list on favorite drama ever. what a waste.

It's a Kim Eun Sook drama so I will watch it. I can't even pretend I'm not going to watch it. :P I expect it will be entertaining and funny with some shinning moments and some incredibly frustrating moments involving badly written women characters and overly macho men... As long as the characters stay away from beds then it will be ok.

But there sure is lots of eye candy. This one will probably be a big hit oversea with LMH and PSH in the lead. This makes me happy for Choi Jin Hyuk because he will have more exposure that can lead to bigger roles. I do not want him to be like Lee Sang Woo, whom I love, but almost never has a 1st lead role. TT

...Still, if CJH character is 31, I hope (really really hope -.-) that means there will be NO love triangle with him LMH and PSH cause that would be a problem given PSH is playing a highschooler. Maybe CJH can have a love line with one of LMH's teachers ;)

why are you making a big deal of it?!
after you have watched the very first episodes,you can judge!!
why do you keep on finding fault with LEE MIN HO????!!!
what's the big deal??!!
he acts brilliantly and I am sure he can make it thorough!
THE ONLY THING THAT MATTERS IS AGE???????

lee min ho is very hard working and diligent actor!!
have you forgotten his acting in "City hunter"??
he went thorough tough spots because of the action scenes!!
the director once said that if he takes off his clothes,his body is full of bruises and wounds!!
and he got good result for his effort.
he became the most popular actor in "Russia" and "France"!!

CONCLUSION:he is indeed a great actor who makes effort.Kim Eun Sook knows all this and that's the reason she has chosen him for the lead actor!!

Je suis originaire de France, Lee Min Ho est très, très populaire dans mon pays.
J'aime tout son dramas.when j'ai entendu parler de son nouveau drama "les héritiers", je me suis tellement heureux!
Tout ce que je peux faire est d'attendre! Il est très difficile! : (
maintenant que nous savons de Choi Jin Hyuk caractère, que diriez-Lee Min Ho!
J'ai lu dans un site que Kim Eun Sook est de créer un personnage qui lui convient parfaitement. Je me demande ce que c'est!

Those awards are pretty much a joke and are based on popularity and whatever was the biggest hit for the network than anything else.

After seeing Faith, I don't think I want to see Lee Min Ho play a high schooler again. I love him but just, no. I do think Faith was his best work, it seemed more mature. But I guess if 25 year old Gu Hye Sun could play a high schooler (convincingly?) In Boys Before Flowers, Lee Min Ho should be able to pull it off, hopefully.
Also, I think I'm one of the few people who do not really care for Gossip Girl. But hey we have Daddy Gumiho, so that's a plus. :D

Hopefully he's gumiho sweet and tough, but not a flakely chaebol who owns the bakery and has not guts.

LMH is now only internationally famous because of his cheesy-esque kdrama car commercial that played here in the states. I can't believe I introduced my advertising friends to him in this car commercial.. yes, this is the 'idea' korean man that i watch for hours on end when i'm not working?? my friends laughed because he wasn't slick like city hunter, but just a pretty boy in a fancy car, who has amnesia and the car's data helps remember his identity and the girl he left behind. The company car chose him to be the face of brand because of the hallyu wave that attracts american ajummas to buy the vehicle. Simply put, he sells cars.

Don't hate him, will still watch him in something good, but he's over-rated as an actor.

Just by reading the synopsis, I rather CJH drops this drama. He should do something different. Same for LMH. If he going to play another petulant, spoiled chaebol heir, it's like BOF all over again. How about playing some offbeat character or something darker? That can help him progress to movies.
