Krystal joins the cast of Heirs

We’ve got another casting addition to the trendy high school rom-com Heirs (He Who Wears the Crown, Endure Its Weight: Heirs) — f(x) idol Krystal has confirmed that she’s joining the cast, alongside Lee Min-ho, Park Shin-hye, Kim Woo-bin, and Choi Jin-hyuk.

The buzz project from writer Kim Eun-sook of Secret Garden and A Gentleman’s Dignity promises a glossy Gossip Girl-esque world of uber-rich high schoolers, and tells the story of their friendships and loves. So far there’s little else to describe the story, but I half expect that to BE the entire story, ’cause I sat through all of A Gentleman’s Dignity.

Krystal will be joining the set of upper crust high school students as a chaebol heiress. Her character is described as a girl who wants for nothing in the world, and is haughty and chic. Sounds like pretty standard second lead territory, but I hope there’s going to be more dimension there for her sake.

Krystal was last in the family sitcom High Kick 3: Counterattack of the Short Legs, and though I never loved her (perhaps because she was playing a pretty simple one-note character for most of the show’s run), I found her serviceable as the bratty younger sister. I don’t see a huge difference for her Heirs character, except maybe having the money to back the ‘tude, but she can be likable when she’s dialed down. I remember warming to some of her quieter moments in High Kick, though they were few.

Heirs is being planned for 20 episodes, as a Wednesday-Thursday drama set to premiere in early October on SBS.

Man I so hope this drama is good!

I am not familiar with Krystal, but I really like (LOVE!) every other cast member so far, so it would be wonderful if the actual drama itself was awesome too....

The highscool thing is such a massive turnoff though but I am going to keep an open mind if I can.

Thanks for the casting update Girlfriday!! :)

Heard this was an SM behind the scene push to cast Krystal. Since the announcement of the drama, they have been media playing about her joining the cast.

That is why unlike the other casting, where Kim Eun-Sook made an announcement about being involved in the casting, no such announcement was made about Krystal's casting.

So already, K-netizens are saying this was a producer addition, since they wanted rookie actors and not idols for this drama.

Krystal turned down the role multiple times, probably since this character sounds dull and f(x) is coming back /really/ soon. That's why it took so long to confirm because she kept turning it down.

She is serviceable I guess, I have seen her in 2 sitcoms and she is okay. They usually have her for her ability to speak English, since she grew up in the States. There is something about her that just makes her bland, like she is missing the It factor.

This drama is gearing up for another Playful Kiss, all hype and no cigar. Really, High School?

WTF is Lee Min Ho thinking, going back to playing school roles, thought he finally moved into adult leading man roles. So unless they graduate them quickly and move them into college, this will be a very, very odd drama.

agree. sounds like BoF all over again. if LMH is going to rehash something please it be dashing action hero/City Hunter ( I would SOOO watch City Hunter 2. little sister kidnapped, city hunter returns from the states to save her. he acquires a little adorable tech posse to bring some BROmance, maybe we could cast Gur-oh as his nerdy/hot sidekick....sigh....I've thought too much about this).

that said. there is no power on earth that will keep me from watching LMH in a drama. I watched all of Faith. ALL of it.

We are assuming actors all get to pick and choose every one of their roles. I said the same thing, really why back to high school for LMH, and then I recall that it appears that a lot of Korean celebs have pretty tight management. We must remember that they mostly belong to agencies right? And the agencies seem to me are a bit like the old Hollywood studio system, and there are politics involved. I believe there was some info in a past post that indicated the writer wrote the lead male character with Lee Min Ho in mind. I guess I'm just saying who knows what goes on behind the scenes!

am i the only one around here who really likes her style?
i usually have a somewhat upscale taste, and there isnt a single character she ever wrote which i dont like.
i dont know what went wrong there.

either way i am not too keen on this either, because i like epic plots with beginnings and ends and she seems to have totally jumped on the "about the characters relationships..." plot thing.
but will still have to watch it because of the stylish writing...uh.

If there's one idol out there who can play a character as mentioned above flawlessly, it would be Krystal for sure. Hands down. I'm not a big f(x) fan so I don't know her personality or attitude very well, what kind of a person she is like behinds the scenes etc. but she's got the natural image for it.

Sure, she's not the most talented idol actress out there but I doubt the sort of character she's going to play requires as much actual acting abilities than say, Park Shin Hye's character (which I'm sure PSH will own it damn hard, so much love for the girl).

Anyway, looking forward to this.

What's more, Kim Woo Bin and Choi Jin Hyuk as high schoolers? Count me in! No, I don't think I'll ever get sick of KWB in school uniform - ever.

I would assume a kim eun sook upcoming project will be in the spotlight even though the air date isn't even set to air until months and months later. Other projects just kind of sneak up on us once they start script readings/press conferences. There's so much hype for this project that even if it sucks in quality it better make up in for crack.
And pretty, which i'm sure we'll have plenty of.
It's been a while since we've had a "boys before flowers" or a "you're beautiful" show with alot of fandom. I'm going to admit they were quite enjoyable to watch even if you turn off your brain for so much of it.

Answers:
-Figuratively either 1% or .1%
-About 75-80% of dramas feature the usual chaebol-poor interactions (AKA rich guy-poor girl stories); BOF was the creme de la creme. "Hana Yori Dango" was much more fun (the original manga and the Japanese version with Arashi).
-Of course; some chaebols go way back to their ancestors' yangban aristocratic roots. Chaebols are the top of the socio-economic pyramid. Think of the world of Louis XIV's Versailles in modern-day South Korea.

Krystal is the only member of the cast who could actually pass for a high school student (and she just entered college).

I'm torn about this casting. First of all, I think Krystal is way less stiff/forced & vacant than many idol actors I've seen - she acquitted herself well in HK3 although her character was one-note - and I'm confident she can pull off haughty, but the character description sounds so trite that I'm not sure if she's going to be allowed to grow as an actress if her character is just a rich bitch K-drama cliche utilized to make us feel sorry for PSH instead of a character in her own right (in which case Krystal's acting skills will barely matter).

I'm not familiar with Kim Eun-sook's work, but I'm getting the notion from what I've read that she's not one for layered characterizations.

I agree - she's ok, as far as rookies/idol-actors go (I'd take her over,say, Suzy any day, esp. in this kind of role) but nothing we've learned about this drama so far inspires any confidence - writer who does not deal in subtleties, high school setting for actors who would do better to move past it, classic bitchy second lead and all.

But then, considering how many shows I was initially interested in this year fell absolutely flat and the fact that every single one of the shows I'm into right now basically sneaked up on me with unexpected awesomeness, I'll give this one a chance.

I have that same feeling. Pretty much every show I was looking forward to I ended up dropping or extended fast-forwarding. The ones that surprised me - like IHYV - were not even on my radar, so at this point not filled with anticipation, but will give it a chance.

Honestly have no opinion on Krystal as an actress as I only know her in kpop and haven't watched any of her acting projects. But I do find it weird that every one they casted in this drama is mid to late 20s IRL and then they cast Krystal who is 18-19ish. Although she is definitely the only one who fits the high school image, I do wish they casted older just to match the rest of the catch because not only is Krystal young, she looks young, which will make it even less believable to see these 20 somethings play high schoolers next to her.

Also, will there ever be a kdrama without idol from here on out? I am starting to highly doubt it and that is sad....

Why do I feel like she's the only one that could pass for a high school student.

One can only hope that one day someone will think to put characters that could pass as adults in a college setting.
Aside from heartstrings/love story in harvard, is there any other show out there where we had actors in a show that actually went to college instead of high school? I realized there's a surplus of highschool dramas and just not enough of college ones.

Looking at our cast, who can actually pull it off? Park shin hye, maybe. Krystal, definitely.
Lee min ho? no. You kinda outgrow that when you've played a badass city hunter bent on revenge or an ancient warrior from the goryeo era.
He must be feeling nostalgic from the boys before flowers days because as of now that's the project that comes to mind when reading the rather vague description of this project.

That's why I find her casting strange. The fact that she looks so young (and is young) will make it that much more unbelievable that the rest of the cast are high school students in comparison. The rest of the cast are not only in their 20s, they look in their 20s so I kind of wish they casted someone older .

I just wish they kept the drama in college. If they were all in college the age gap between Krystal and Lee Min Ho could easily be believable.

If they try for high school, then everyone should roughly be the same age, so there's no comparison like 'Glee'.

Not familiar with Krystal, but I'm not so positive about her, either. I mean, if she's quite good in her previous projects, she would be quite famous by now. Not many idol-turn-to-actors truly qualify in their acting skill.
For me, it's a 99% drama to be skipped, but I'm keeping 1% for the writer.
So, I will check DB updates about this project.

Actually the only reason Krystal isn't in more dramas is because of SM. They have quite terrible scheduling. Like right now, this drama clashes with f(x)'s second album and possible December EP.

I still don't understand why they couldn't just set this drama in college? Krystal is probably the only one out of that cast who can still believably pull off a high schooler. Plus, as much as I enjoy high school dramas, it's not like drama-land needs /another/ one. College kdramas seem to be much rarer and here you have a great cast who are the PERFECT age for a college-centric drama and yet you decide to give them a high school setting? It's kind of a waste.

You make a good point.
I think alot of the frustration about the high school setting is more with maturity level.
adults playing highschoolers just seem rather odd, and people generally prefer characters that act and talk like adults. But this is k-drama we're talking about, so regardless of highschool or not one can argue there's still some of that immaturity running amuck in our older heros/heroines. Makes for some bickering and teasing.

Contrary to some comments, I think KES is the few rare writers who can actually paint a bitchy glamorous second lead as a whole person complete with their flaws and good streaks. Think the CF director character from Secret Garden or Jung-rok's awesome wife in AGD. Now let's hope Krystal is up for the game, she definitely has the aura down pat already. Throw in some epic love/hate storyline with a Chuck-esque hero and I'm going down with the ship!

I'd argue it's her netizen-designated public image that fits the character.

Her real life personality is more awkward and reserved than haughty.

I have a legit question. Could anyone offer me some insight as to why there are always so much complaints about idols turned actors (not here, generally speaking I mean) but nobody ever says anything about all these models turned actors, which in all honesty aren't much better a lot of times?

I don't take netizen comments as The One and Holy Truth like some do but, for example, I remember when Cyrano Agency casting was revealed there was a netizen comment that said they were looking forward to Hong Jong Hyun (amongst others) then procceeded to complain about Sooyoung getting cast. And as much as I love him (and I really do, I've watched almost everything he's been in) he really has a long way to go... has this person ever seen his stiff acting in Jeon Woo Chi?

Is it safe to say it's just bias then? Blind prejudice? Something else?

I think it has something to do with the fact that idol actors with even nonexistent skill keep getting cast in major roles/lead roles in dramas all the time, despite proving their lack of aptitude for acting (plus also, their obnoxious fans who will blame the writer, PD, other cast members, actor's age, anything but their bias's lack of talent, for a lacklustre performance). Model-turned-actors don't generally get that many chances for such little evidence of talent. Like Hong Jong-hyun, for instance, has never been a lead in any of the shows he's been in, even if he's enjoyable enough playing his emotionless characters.

Just to make it clear: I have nothing at all against idols who can act or at least pull off a character (really loving BEAST's Jun-hyung and GLAM's Dahee in Monstar at the mo), I'm all for talented people using their idol careers as a launch pad.

But what I (and most other people who grumble about idol actors) would like to do away with is the repeated and unnecessary breaks given to idols who just don't show any evidence of acting talent at all. Like I see no reason at all for Taecyeon to have an acting career - he sucks. And this applies to untalented pretty-face non-idols too, Han Ga-in is one of those.

I think it has a lot to do with many non-talented Idol-actors getting casted in lead roles as their first acting job. People don't have a problem with idols acting if they have the natural talent to back it up or take up smaller roles first to develop the talent first. But more often then not idols that are wooden and undeveloped actors have been getting mainstream leads that really would of been better served by giving the role to a more talented actor rookie or otherwise. For example, I love Suzy but she really shouldn't be getting leading roles in dramas until she improves on her acting, the same goes for Yoona. Taecyeon shouldn't be acting period, let alone acting lead over the likes of Kim Jae Wook. Now don't get me wrong, I don't hate all idols that act, like the other commenter I do like Dahee and Junhyung in Monstar, I love IU in Youre the Best Lee Soon Shin and Dream HIgh, and I have liked Eunjung in most of her roles. Also Suju's Heechul is surprisingly good at acting, as is a few others.

As for the model-actors, there isn't as much criticism because many model-actors star in small supporting roles for years first before they are given any sort of lead status.

Thank you ^^
I see what you guys are saying. Sometimes, it just looks like idols get shortcuts to lead roles when there are definitely other actors who might suit the roles better... Suzy being the prime example in most recent memory (I don't hate Suzy either, just not fond of her acting).
One can also say that there's a difference between starring in a low-key cable drama and starring in a huge, over-hyped production in a golden time slot. Not saying that undeserving lead roles only go to idols-but since being an idol seems to be a common denominator among many of these kids, it's easier to point at it as the problem. After all it really is very frustrating to have an awesome story ruined because of poor acting from one of the leads.

I don't think it is a bias against idols, I think it is that far too many of those idols are simply crappy actors and are cast only as names for the squee-ers.

I don't mind idol turned actors or model turned actors, I mind

* anyone who gets a lead acting role at first try when they've shown no talent at all and bomb it
* anyone who gets repeatedly cast, whether in lead or second roles, despite showing no or little talent
* especially if that casting is at the cost of other, often more significantly talented actors who end as second or third leads
* especially if actors who have shown that they have the talent to carry a drama as a lead don't get those leads because idols/models/celebrities get cast instead
* dramas that from the start lower their quality by this type "name over talent" casting, because in the end that leads to lower quality dramas overall (if it happens continuously, everyone's expectations are lowered)

Suzy, Taecyeon, Yong-Hwa should have only small roles (not even necessarily second leads IMO). IU I think is doing okay, it's a weekend drama anyhow. Dahee and Junhyung are fine in Monstar. Sooyoung seemed alright, though I dropped that drama early.

It's funny how people get different impressions. For me, Suzy is OK. She did decent job in GFB, and she has good screen presence too. Same as Yoona. I liked her in Spring rain, and don't understand why she get criticize so much. On the other hand, though I like IU or Sullie as idol, I don't feel much attractions from them as actress.
People here often talk about acting skills, but acting is not only matter for casting, and that's also depend on personal taste. For example, I like actress who has own character/originality, and as long as they fit in the role, I'm not against idol-actress neither. As for Krystal, I'm sure she fit well in this kind of role, and she appeal me somehow as actress too. Tbh, I didn't have much interest with this drama until now, but I might check only because of interests for Krystal.

I really don't know what to think about this casting.

On the one hand, I'm happy for Krystal because I like her, and think she has potential as an actress, more than most idol-actors, and I am looking forward to seeing her with Park Shin-hye, Lee Min-ho and Kim Woo-bin, and Choi Jin-hyuk.

On the other hand, I don't care for the character description. Haughty and chic second leads are so been there done that, that I just find them annoying now, and tune out whenever they're on screen. I really want there to be more dimension and character growth for this character, but with this writer I'm not so certain. I like A Gentleman's Dignity well enough, but I did not like Secret Garden. I really hope Krystal doesn't become one of those unfortunate actresses who are type-casted for every drama they do. We've seen her do the bitchy, arrogant girl, and now we'll be seeing her play the same role, but with more money. I would like her to play a sweeter, nicer character one of these days, because I do like Krystal, and hope she does well.

I agree. I think she'd so great in a softer role like playing someone with an awkward or nerdy personality.

This casting is making me uncomfortable lmao
Especially at the fact that LMH, supposed king of all badassery in Kdrama land, is playing a high school student.
Um?
Let's not forget the fact that he doesn't look like the role. KWB, despite me loving his performance in School 2013, is always playing a high school student and I really wish he would stop, as I would love to see the boy play bigger and better roles in the future, not a high school student who is probably gonna be a "troubled" kid. PSH is pretty chill. I loved her in heartstrings (stopped watching flower boy next door), so I don't mind her. Plus, she can pass as a high school student. I remember CJK playing that one dude in ms panda and mr hedgehog (2/10 do not recommend), but I forgot how he did. Maybe he was good, I'm not sure. But Krystal? playing a bitchy character once again? Urgh. Wish I got something new. Idol actors/actresses are not my favorite at all. Remember Dani from School 2013? Girl got me throwing my chair at the computer, even tho her role wasn't even that big. Probably just going to watch for KWB & PSH.

I found her extremely annoying on high kick tbh. I don't understand why people are saying she's decent when all she did on that show was act bratty and petulant. I don't know if I can sit through more of that (since it sounds like her character in this will be similar)
