    bohooo yahuuu. cant wait!

    Oh hello!

    Not that I had been on the fence before about watching this show, and LMH is not the greatest actor, but with shots like that who cares! 🙂

    • 2.1 Jill

      What! I think he is one of the best actors have seen in the Kdramas.

      • 2.1.1 Redskirt

        He’s a good actor, but I have had a hard time buying romantic chemistry from him (which KILLS me) and that can’t be entirely the ladies’ faults. Maybe it’s because the only one of his dramas I’ve missed (City Hunter) is supposedly the one where he has romantic chemistry with his leading lady.

        Apart from the “Game Over” kiss of course in Personal Taste. Happy Siiiiiigh.

        • kappy

          That was a very (very very) good kiss in City Hunter, but chemistry-wise with that couple, I wasn’t feeling it.

          I loved him in Faith and felt the chemistry there, and though there was but one kiss to dwell on, it was a good one. Of course, I don’t think he knows how to kiss badly.

          • Kryz4kry

            We need solid proof that he isn’t that bad of a kisser. I volunteer to do the kissing!

          • Flussy

            I am soooo with you about LMH not being a Great kisser…he needs tips!!!!! but he’s GORGEOUS!!!!

        • Lisa-Loo-Loo

          I agree romantic chemistry is not always there with him, I really want to see do an all out action film…like Ajhussi. I think he’d totally rock that.

      • 2.1.2 Kiara

        You need to watch more K-dramas :).

  3. snow__white

    He is looking so goooooood in the first pic…..

    • 3.1 Cheryl

      Does a picture exist he isn’t looking good in? I’m not sure if such a thing exists. ;D

  4. Ivy

    So handsome 😀

  5. merlyunho

    I will, from now on, be alert to every of your heirs-related posts.

    For its short fabulousity(that’s not even a word) alone.

    And who can say no to abs.


    • 5.1 KDaddict

      And Pecs, and Biceps!


  6. Nanaki

    …surfing with a baseball cap on? What? HOW.

    • 6.1 kappy

      To protect his hair from harmful UV rays? Block sun from eyes? I’m just glad he’s shirtless!

    • 6.2 Yenlinh69

      I surf in hawaiian water and it is hard to keep a hat on. However, it sure does not look likes there is a lot of wave there. When I watch tv shows that have the main characters be surfers, it is always hilarious because the editings are all wrong: Wrong footwork, stands, wrong stunt persons, or wrong waves. Anyway, I am sure they probably make him look like he is a surfbum avoiding his family’s work responsibility.
      Just so you know, surfing is a lifestyle sport, and it takes a lots of dedications and disciplines to be good at.
      It also helps to take the stress out of your life.

    I kindda used to this style of posting for Heirs. SHORT.

    • 7.1 the50-person

      Indeed. Short.

    • 7.2 ruthiepoof

      oh my god I laughed so hard and it’s early in the morning from where I am!! My sister thought I was going crazy! It’s the same from the last update of Heirs: short, sweet, and funny!!!

  8. Sumee

    ooooooooooooooooo ..hyperventilating 🙂

  9. the50-person

    Oh HEIRS. Will you ever learn to release gd CHUNKS of info instead of such pathetic little orange peels? *groans* even DB has given such short posts on you now. Go to the wall and reflect upon your grave mistakes.

    I’ve a feeling that this might turn out to be really overrated and I’m scared that it might come crashing down hard on us if the drama doesn’t hold as well as we expected. Eek. The buzz is really amping up our expectations (too) high.

    • 9.1 the50-person

      But then, I might still catch it if the story has a gd start. (not a guaranteed indicator of success, but enough to warrant a attempted viewing) 😊

    • 9.2 Clau

      as long as lmh is on it I am all for it till the end… he is just got something when he is acting that can get through the tv its totally addicting..

      • 9.2.1 Ishani

        yah,me too.As lmh is there, I’ll watch it till the end.I have read gentleman’s dignity & secret garden on DB.so I guess this also will be good enough.

    • 9.3 KimYoonmi

      I rather know nothing about it, expect exactly nothing and then be wowed for what it is rather than what I think it should be *cough* BIG *cough*.

      I’m hoping it’ll be KES’s usual style of really interesting male characters with her usual side of visual details. And that’s about it.

    • 9.4 Faye

      In a way, the tactic is working, isn’t it? Because it keeps us on the hook waiting for more tidbits (at least it is for me, LOL).

    • 9.5 Gidget

      “The buzz is really amping up our expectations (too) high.”

      Not for me. I’m taking a win-win approach. I’ll watch it for all the pretty. And if it’s good, that’ll be a bonus.

      But, for me, no Kdrama experience is complete without a Dramabeans recap. In a way, the worse the drama is, the better the message board is. Wouldn’t you agree that no matter how good or bad the show turns out to be, the posts here will be hilarious?

      So, if it’s good it’ll be fun. But if it’s bad, it’ll still be fun (even though I’ll feel sorry for the actors).

      Like I said, win-win.

      • 9.5.1 Gidget

        Note to self: edit rambling stream of consciousness posts before hitting submit button. Urm, let’s try this one again.

        “The buzz is really amping up our expectations (too) high.”

        Maybe. But for me, no Kdrama is complete without its Dramabeans recap. Wouldn’t you agree that no matter how good or bad the show turns out to be, the posts here will be hilarious?

        If it’s swoon-worthy, the Dramabeans recap and comments will make it swoonier. If it’s cringe-worthy, Dramabeans will make it outright funny.

        So I’m taking a win-win approach. I’ll watch it for all the pretty. And if it’s good, that’ll be a bonus. But if it’s bad, I’ll still be glad it aired (even though I’ll feel sorry for the actors).

  10. 10 noernov

    As along as there’s abs involving,count me in 😉

  11. 11 Lemon

    OHMAGAWD I totally swooned!!!

  12. 12 Rachel

    Oh gosh I can’t imagine what else this show could possibly offer that I could WANT.

    There better be steamy kissing scenes and lots of cuteness. i DEMAND it, Heirs!

    • 12.1 YxoR

      Steamy kissing scenes? with PSH ? don’t hold your breath…

  13. 13 StrokedPerson

    those arms…haha

    can we have woobin and kang haneul shirtless too? more abs! LOL

    • 13.1 aulia

      lol, I just think about it. Oh no, I wish it.

      • 13.1.1 StrokedPerson

        it wud be a dream come true if all of them went shirtless…hoho

    • 13.2 JoAnne

      So when I saw this on twitter, I immediately responded that it excited me only because it meant that we might possibly see a shirtless Choi Jin Hyuk. Brothers on vacation, for the win!

      However…Mr. Lee Min Ho: You, Sir, have done some growing since last I saw you. I welcome you shirtless as well, from this point forward.

      • 13.2.1 pogo

        @JoAnne – oh, yes, he’s grown.

        The last time I saw him shirtless was in BOF, and it promptly undid all my noona-drooling, because the only thought I had was ‘please put your clothes back ON!’, he was so skinny.

        • bee

          I was the opposite, in BOF I loved his tanned body, and wanted to throw something at her because she was telling him to keep his trousers on (or sth like that) while covering her eyes.

          BTW, “shirtless Choi Jin Hyuk” *o*, awesome possibility!

          • Kandiboo

            *gasp* shirtless Choi Jin Hyuk~

            noona fangurling.

  14. 14 aulia

    Does Woo bin also learn it?

  15. 15 Elysium

    Loving the short posts for Heirs on here XD, they had their first script reading really quietly too, with like a single group pic or something – unimpressed. Where’s the cute?

  16. 16 coby

    Yay! But how about Kang Ha Neul?

    • 16.1 StrokedPerson

      my thoughts exactly…

    • 16.2 MariD

      I third this.. I want my honey in a wet suit…

  17. 17 redfox

    my gosh, did not recognize him from the thumbnails. His face seems way thinner?

    • 17.1 ilikemangos

      Really? I was opposite.
      I noticed his face got fuller and his body got bigger.
      I’m just happy the guy put some weight on.
      Any k-celeb that is looking fuller than usual makes me happy.
      Maybe it’s the short haircut too, exposing his facec.

  18. 18 rabbitsfortea

    Great minds think alike apparently, cos that’s the first thing that came to my mind. Thank you scriptwriter.

  19. 19 cleo

    Look at those well-muscled arms. He can wrap it around me anytime… anytime…

  20. 20 Clau

    I think LMH is a great actor he not only has a great chemistry with each of his counter parts but he is got charisma and knows how to handle himself. Now that I see him shirtless u can tell he is got some great bod too!!!!

  21. 21 Stacy


    I am dead. Is all.

    • 21.1 Shadow-chan

      I’m with you there, I’m completely with you~ *_*

  22. 22 wits

    …and shoulders, and biceps!!! All on one awesome package called Lee.Min.Ho. Yes, thanks again.

  23. 23 kdramapedia

    How are we supposed to believe he’s in high school when he’s going around looking like THAT?!

    • 23.1 Miichiyeo


    • 23.2 BellaMafia

      lots of high schoolers look like that though. Especially kids in Varsity league, they have to do extra hard to build their muscles for sports.

    • 23.3 Maris

      I know of many high schoolers with that sort of physique too…….its the age when they start going to gym regularly and become health food addicts. :). There are many that tall too.
      That’s why I think rather than their appearance ……a lot will depend on their acting and script for them to carry out their high school characters. The older they are the tougher its going to be for them to play it. LMH has the toughest in that sense.

      • 23.3.1 Kandiboo

        i third that, many of my high school (especially B-ballers) classmates looked pretty good – actually they (and me) were much fitter and bulkier with muscles back then!

    • 23.4 kdramapedia

      I definitely went to the wrong high school then…

  24. 24 aicaramba

    Thank you indeed!
    Ummm… for the next posts: kang haneul, kim woo bin and choi jin hyuk please! Feel free to use less words, as long as there‘s no shortage of pics! Haha..

  25. 25 YY

    Let’s just pretend he’s wearing a teeny little hand towel in the second pic. Orange is such a pretty color too – it really brings out the *cough* beast in him.

    • 25.1 YY

      *best I mean LOL

      • 25.1.1 ~Feather~

        Sure you did. 😉

  26. 26 Makoto

    Haha… So cynical. I like the way you express it. Heirs needs no more news, just give us the drama. Period.

  27. 27 Faye

    Did you all hear the rumor (news?) that they’re shooting the first two episodes in California? Hmm, must check my schedule – didn’t I plan to go to L.A. to visit friends this year anyway ;)?

  28. 28 bishbash

    lovely post here, javabeans! hope you’re feeling better after looking at the abs! XD

  29. 29 korfan

    Oh wow, to think that there could be a LMH sighting in town …….. interesting!

    Nice pics ….. thanks JB!

  30. 30 Treasure

    I do wonder who is on the other end of the camera…

  31. 31 Jenny

    Abs mmmmmmmmmm…….
    And do I sense that Javabeans is tired of Heirs news 😉
    Why did they have to vast Im Joo Eun!!! Because of her I’ll have to watch this.

  32. 32 kumi

    I need more info on location, because I live in LA.

  33. 33 katiamon

    With all the PR and news flashes about Heirs I have the impression that the story will suck but still become a guilty pleasure, especially if they are giving us this kind of fan services….

    • 33.1 Rach^^

      LOL that’s exactly what I’m thinking.

    • 33.2 pogo

      Bring on BOF mk. II, I say!

  34. 34 soiia

    Posts like this show just how superficial DB can be… oh wait it’s Lee Min Ho- never superficial or shallow.

    • 34.1 ilikemangos

      lmao, i like these posts. Proves how human these goddesses are.
      imo, there are way more substantial posts on DB than there are shallow posts, so i’ll take a half naked pic anyday.

  35. 35 QT765

    The recent entries about Heirs has gotten really short xD

  36. 36 bains

    Am i the only one who likes the first pic more than the second one? He looks so handsome in it.
    About the over-hype of this drama. I think they know it too about the amount of hype it is getting, that is why the script reading was held quietly with no photos released of cast.

    • 36.1 Maris

      You have a point there. They really don’t need any publicity, for sure.

  37. 37 Andrea

    THOSE ARMS. He didn’t use to have THOSE ARMS.

    So, Woo Bin put up some weight for his latest movie… And I presume it was all in muscle and all that jazz. And Choi Jin Hyuk is hot too. So…

    Heirs, even if you suck, please give us a lot of shirtless scenes just because it’s a nice thing to do for the world. The world needs more smiles. Thank you.

  38. 38 mari

    Wow.. you took it from LINE, JB?? I saw this pic in his Line. hahahhaha
    But you made me laugh JB.. Thanks

  39. 39 EX-DF user

    Looking at this first thing in the am makes me all sorts of happy.

  40. 40 loveydovey

    what is this show about again?

    • 40.1 sayuri

      Yeah believe it or not, it’s about highschoolers. Looking like thát! *sigh

    • 40.2 owl

      Beach scenes, pretty faces and sculpted bodies – that’ll do it.

  41. 41 Sadie

    He has a great bod but his face looks older than his actual age, let alone 18.

  42. 42 Peepi

    I am the only one wondering the Lee looks different , kind of serious …. he has lost those chubby laughing eyes he looks more mature may be … I have totall hope on the leads but not the writer and the director. Hope they do a good job !!!

  43. 43 Thatgirl

    Smart move posting this a week after Lee Minho posted it. If you guys post it right away, this site might have crashed cause I know us Minoz were going insane!

  44. 44 Abbie

    What a nice way to start my day. Thank you, Javabeans!

  45. 45 jjwu

    Is this gonna be minho first drama with him being shirtless?! God,can’t wait!!!!! o∩_∩o

  46. 46 SD

    Javabeans, you make my day, everyday. 🙂

  47. 47 hiba omairi

    Ahhhhh im melting !!

  48. 48 anais

    The best thing about surfer boys isn’t their abs. It’s their broad, broad square shoulders; their broad, broad, square pecs; their cut, cut, cut arms; and their to-die-for flanks that are so wonderful to caress.

    Yes, I live in SoCal.

    I so cannot wait for this drama! October, why can’t you come any faster?

    I’m pretty sure that this drama will be a certified guilty pleasure, as Boys Before Flowers was to many viewers. Let’s just hope there won’t be an Almost Paradise-esque song for us to roll our eyes at.
