Drama Casting & News
The first teaser for SBS’s Heirs
by | September 19, 2013 | 281 Comments

That is quite a suit you’re wearing there, Lee Min-ho. It’s ridiculous, but also kind of awesome. They talk about clothes making the man, and it’s true that you take one look at his get-up and know pretty much who you’re dealing with. Loaded, arrogant, maybe a little fussy? It’s all there in that suit.

The teaser for Heirs isn’t really much of one, in that it feels less like a preview and more like an extended roll call for the cast. See how everybody gets little crowns to indicate they’re one of the titular heirs who rule the school and the future world? Everyone except Park Shin-hye, naturally, the poor rich girl who nabs the hero’s heart.

I’m still waiting to see how this is going to be different from the very obvious setup, because it’s going to be different from the very obvious setup, right? As much as I’m all over this show, I really do want it to be more than the same old same old. ‘Cause I’m pretty sure we all say Boys Before Flowers, right?

Heirs follows Master’s Sun and premieres on October 9.

    This drama is full of handsome people *_*
    Le min ho and park shin hye look so good together

    • 1.1 omo

      What I would give to see Gramps Over Flower marry Seojinnie off for 16 to 20 episodes instead….sigh!!

    • 1.2 Nilechoclat

      Agree I am waiting :) <3

    • 1.3 crizzyville

      True! Eyecandies galore!

  2. Mic

    I’m also hoping that something about the drama will make it stand out. I mean…there has to be a reason that Lee Minho and Park Shinhye chose it…right? My heart tells me so, my head says no.

    Well, either way I am looking forward to it and am going to watch. :P It would just be nice if it’s good. xD

    • 2.1 Omona

      BOF was a mess but got good ratings and got sold to many countries = loads of money to actors in it.

      So if they have a chance to have a BOF all over again from a famous scriptwriter, of course they’ll accept it, doesn’t matter if the script sucks because it’ll bring the fame and money they want.

      • 2.1.1 CutiieAngiie

        I know I should be used to it but it’s just sooo sad …

        • 2.1.1.1 redfox

          “It´s ok, Baby!”

          hahahaaa so gonna be misused, over-used, abused this phrase.

          • 2.1.1.1.1 Saima

            I cringed so BAAAD at that!

            Amongst the cast, I’m most excited to see Woo-bin, Joo-eun, Min-hyuk (he’s so CUTEEEE here!!), and Ji-won.

          • 2.1.1.1.2 Ilikehim

            I legit spitted out my drink with that line….and then proceed to rape the repeat button.
            To be honest that part is actually kinda cute, only because Lee Min Ho is saying it ;]

          • 2.1.1.1.3 canxi

            The look of horror that struck my face, lol. The look of horror that struck HER face. Hahahaha.

          • 2.1.1.1.4 ilikemangos

            I am so glad i wasn’t putting anything in my mouth at the time cause i literally bursted out laughing at that line, mostly because it came out of nowhere.

          • 2.1.1.1.5 Jaz

            Oh no! Why did they give him speaking lines in English?!?! I was totally caught off-guard…I don’t know if it sounded good or not actually…gotta replay it again…:D

          • 2.1.1.1.6 Rexy

            I totally laughed at that part since it caught me unawares. And yet, if Lee Min-ho could say that to me….

            Everyone’s so freakin’ good-looking. I’m excited and afraid that this drama will be my new crack drama.

          • 2.1.1.1.7 Gaeina Lee

            Oh, God… *cringes*

      • 2.1.2 MizzJ

        Chakia~~~is this u?^^

      • 2.1.3 eny

        sad but true, i didn’t see high school vibe here

    • 2.2 a

      They said this would be like Gossip Girl, but aside from all the pretty rich kids there’s nothing Gossip Girl about it. The first season of GG was amazeballs because of how fucked up everyone was but I guess you can’t have that in a K-drama.

      • 2.2.1 ilikemangos

        aknowwwww.
        It was darn juicy even though it was horribly written. That same writer is writing Mistresses (with kim yun jin) and that’s a horrible show too.

    • 2.3 Tata

      So far I loves the writer’s drama. So I am positive this drama will be good. I guess it will be a nice romance comedy. Not too crazy, but with good dialogues.

  3. redfox

    all the clothes are awful, I am by now up to heir fed up with the tacky “OMG I am rich, I am rich, I am filthy rich!!!!” fashion sense. lase pattern folds sashes olive green vest wtf.
    1990ies denim jacket. shirt hanging over trousers. well ok they are young.
    arggh you should have them modest and elegant for once.

    • 3.1 redfox

      I am gonna watch it cause that one guy is super cute. imaginary cheek pinching start, go.

      • 3.1.1 Sabah

        One guy? hehehe…yeah once the count reached more than four for me, it was pretty much guaranteed that I’d have to watch. Maybe that’s the plan?

        Unfortunately it also means that things have to be really bad, and I mean really bad before I stop tuning in and that might never happen because well, look at all the prettiness.

        I’m doomed. Drama, ‘tread softly because you tread on my dreams…’

        • 3.1.1.1 redfox

          yeah I mean they are all cute obviously but I still can´t remember all the names by heart, thats why I say this guy, that guy sorry

          *pinch pinch*

          • 3.1.1.1.1 redfox

            Min-Hyuk, Min-Hyuk. all those Hyuks so hard to remember

            you must understand korean names are the most difficult for an estonian person. so confusing. all those syllables.

            ah but gonna remember the puppies´ name for sure now.

          • 3.1.1.1.2 Sabah

            I wasn’t singling you out or anything. In front of all that prettiness, I tend to just stare, point and drool too, hehe.

            Yeah Min Hyuk is on my list too. I’ve had my eye on him ever since the I’m sorry MV where he really stood out, I mean from before. Not sure why, I think I just liked the angsty vibe of the MV, but here he’s playing something softer BUT still, I’m not complaining.

            I don’t know much about the Estonian language, for which I apologize, I can’t understand the specifics of your difficulty. Coming from an English/Asian background, I would confess I found it difficult too but like you, I made the effort and I would say I am able to introduce/reference actors/actresses respectfully…well after all that staring and oogling..hehe

          • 3.1.1.1.3 redfox

            aah aah no sorry sorry I did not mean you specifically, I meant…uh I meant nothing specific reall, never mind me.
            not important just blabbing

          • 3.1.1.1.4 Sabah

            hehe, let’s just blame all that prettiness.

          • 3.1.1.1.5 annakas

            Another Estonian Tervitused!

            And I have to agree, Korean and to me also Chinese names can break my brain to actually remember. I often can watch trough the whole drama and by the end of it still not remember for certain what the characters names were.

            For some reason though I remember Japanese names a little bit easier.

            Nice to know another Estonian watches the shows!

          • 3.1.1.1.6 redfox

            omo! Omo! tervist! ah nice

        • 3.1.1.2 Len

          I applaud you for finding a way to put fangirling and Yeats together!

          • 3.1.1.2.1 risa

            Sabah is awesome like that.

        • 3.1.1.3 kanz

          Maybe that’s what they want from us.. Shoved all pretty and handsome people from Korea and we’re all drool over them. Even if the story don’t make sense (hopefully not)

    • 3.2 Mic

      As you said…they’re young. I don’t know many teenagers who dress modestly and elegantly.

    • 3.3 AMLK

      Oh my god Lee Min Ho’s suit looks like the wallpaper off of BBC’s Sherlock.

      • 3.3.1 ilikemangos

        Don’t EVEN. I am waiting with bated breath for 3rd season to finally air. Would it hurt to announce a solid date?! God!
        “Fall 2013″ is just not good enough.
        Come back to me sherlock.

        • 3.3.1.1 Big Unni

          I know right?! I have this drama and sherlock to wait for. What is Dramaland trying to do to my nerves?!-_-’lol

  4. Omona

    LMH and PSH look like siblings! they are so much alike!

    And I see no chemistry huhuhu

    I hated BOF but I’ll try… for CJH… :)

    • 4.1 skelly

      They are wearing the same makeup colors – foundation, lip gloss, even the eyebrows have been matched up. It’s downright creepy.

      • 4.1.1 vereelimee

        That would be a good twist though? They’re siblings!

        And then the chaos of keeping his friends away from her! That is sounding like a more promising story than a repeat BOF.

        • 4.1.1.1 skelly

          That could actually be a great story. First he finds his long-lost sister, accepts her just to be annoying, then he makes her over to be someone cool enough for him to be with, but he succeeds too well and all of his friends go after her, with their hound-dog ways, and he has to fend them off.

          • 4.1.1.1.1 jhu

            yesss. this would be so much more fun. i agree with all you guys, there’s barely any chemistry. and that would finally give us something unique tp watch. cause right now…it definitely is BOF all over again.

          • 4.1.1.1.2 Laura

            ogh that’s a good story, I’d love to see something like that.

        • 4.1.1.2 JoAnne

          Plot twist: EVERYONE hates him EXCEPT her.

          • 4.1.1.2.1 vereelimee

            Yes. That would be excellent especially with all those hotties trying to get close to her. It’d make the protective big brother role even more hilarious as they just ignored his protests and warnings.

          • 4.1.1.2.2 favoree

            No, it will be rather:
            Everyone hates her. Except him.

        • 4.1.1.3 pogo

          …does that mean Woobie My Wuv can get her, then? Because I would be fully in support of THAT.

          • 4.1.1.3.1 jhu

            yespleaseyespleaseyespleaseyesplease!!!

            i would give the writer a lollipop if they made that happen.

        • 4.1.1.4 canxi

          I doubt it, though. You know they are going to milk that OTP gravy train for all it’s worth. And imagine the public outcry if they did that. IMAGINE IT.

    • 4.2 mrk

      You nailed it! They dont look like they are sharing any chemistry. Her smile looks so fakey – like “they are making me stand next to him and telling me to smile so I have to smile. Ok?”
      And Lee Min Ho can make crazy chemistry love to a prop stick.

      • 4.2.1 nomad

        I guess the girl in BOF isn’t as good as a prop stick…cause there was no chemistry there too.

    • 4.3 favoree

      Agree, I see no spark neither.
      But in the BTS LMH looks super cute with his California girl!!!
      They should make a movie about a mixed race relationship.

    • 4.4 Jaclcyn

      +1

  5. kumi

    I actually like that suit of LMH. It has a touch of Indian Raja Luxury. The shirt designs look a lot like black Indian henna they put all over the bride’s body; and the suit has a hint of sari border weave.

    • 5.1 Thursdaynexxt

      Ok, I initially thought that a sofa had walked all over him, but the look is growing on me…slowly. Although what’s with the double pocket?!

      Mostly just concentrating on the face … the pretty… :D

      • 5.1.1 skelly

        LOL, even the sofa can’t resist his magnetic charm…

      • 5.1.2 redfox

        *imagines a walking sofa, shakes head* um. can´t compute.

  6. cali

    OMG at the end of the teaser when LMH said “It’s okay, baby” I spit out my drink bahahahahahaha

  7. Laura

    It’s OK, baby ;)

  8. SH

    “It’s okay, baby” :lol:

    That might the catch-phrase of the year, guiiiiiiise!

    • 8.1 redfox

      definitely!!!
      omo, I laughed so hard my upstairs neighbor knocked on the floor /ceiling!

    • 8.2 Monstermom

      I literally have no idea what else was in the teaser! “It’s OK, baby!” may be some sort of infectious internet-to-brain parasite because it just blocks everything else out. Now I must watch this drama suddenly, just to see that in context!
      (And hear it again. And find out if it’s got equally hilarious friends. And… And… Sorry, what was I saying? I have to go watch a teaser now, bye.)

    • 8.3 damianna

      fisrt so ji sub got me spilling water with ‘uri eggi’ while caressesing gong hyo jin’s cheek, then this ‘it’s okay baby’ while linking arm around shin hye. aaah!

    • 8.4 Momoi

      You don’t know how much a giggled at that.

  9. Ace

    Was watching TMS ep.13 and was waiting for the preview of the next episode when they showed this instead. Even with LMH, KWB, & KHN, I still wanted a glimpse of Joong-won and Tae-yang more because it’s going to be another loooooooooong week. TT

  10. 10 Fishy

    The It’s ok baby killed me :D

  11. 11 Rachel

    Aww Kim Woo Bin and Kang Haneul are so cute in their solo shots.

    “It’s ok baby!”

    • 11.1 spygoddess@hotmail.com

      KANG HA NEUL!!! Show us more of him!!

  12. 12 Julili

    Are they meant to be in collage or high school?

    • 12.1 Quiet Thought

      You could make a good fashion collage out of those good-looking people and their fancy clothes, but they are about as high school as the Kardashians.

  13. 13 PeterRabit

    What a fashion show of cast photos! They make me nervous about if the drama plot is good, different or just another super-artificial drama just like BOF, Secret Garden. I did drop those 2 dramas even knowing much that fame of those were being blown up high.
    My heart tells me to follow my fav actor LMH cause since Personal Preference, his dramas suit my taste. But with all photos and news until now from Heirs, I am unsure if another amid-drop incurs.

  14. 14 Noelle

    “It’s okay baby” pfft! Ha.

  15. 15 jademwong

    Not enough Choi Jin hyuk in the teaser for my taste. I really really hope this is not a 2nd bof. Sigh!

    • 15.1 kumi

      He’s here for one 30th split of a second maybe. :(

      • 15.1.1 skelly

        Not enough. I think it’s ageism, rearing its ugly head. The older brother and the teacher are going to be cruelly pitched out of the spotlight because they have already graduated.

    • 15.2 Jaz

      Same here…why isn’t he in the teaser? Or was he there but I just didn’t noticed??? But then again I was glad when I saw his photo after scrolling down…I’m smiling wide again! keke! XD

  16. 16 bains

    Eeetss Okee Babeee!

  17. 17 Kiara

    Ishh ok baby lol. Cute.

  18. 18 katiamon

    Right now, my resolution is to watch this show just as a guilty pleasure and with hopes that they make me eat my words because it turns out that the plot is freaking awesome.
    I dare you, Show to prove me wrong!!!!

  19. 19 Thatgirl

    “It’s ok baby.” •barf•

  20. 20 AnotherFan

    As much as I love PSH to pieces, I don’t think this is the show for me. LMN looks way too made-up and plasticy (maybe it’s the photoshopping). The story sounds like a regurgitated version of BBF which was a hot mess of overrated media vehicle to sell hallyu (and LMH) in my eyes. Not sure why I have so much negative feelings towards this show. Don’t hate me. Maybe I am too old for this…

    • 20.1 bains

      Its Ok baby! its not compulsory to watch :-)

      • 20.1.1 Toto

        lol i am still gonna tune in!! but if it all gets too much .. i’ll just tell myself “its okay baby” its not real!!
        bhhaha I will never get that phrase out of my head!! ugh ewwh cringe

      • 20.1.2 ilikemangos

        Omg stop it you guys are making me laugh waaaay too hard — i feel my stomach toning.

    • 20.2 Altari

      Me too. :(
      I’m already sick of this drama and I like both LMH and PSH a lot.
      I’m SOO sick of watching stuck-up rich people in K-drama land.

    • 20.3 Gwen

      I must be too old for this too! I already think I’m gonna hate this drama because really, they haven’t showed anything that would make it different from BOF which was terrible. I thought it was going to be the korean Gossip Girl but this is nothing like that. Also I really hate the fact that they’re set in high school when no one besides MAYBE Krystal looks close to that age. IDK why that bothers me so much lol.

  21. 21 bains

    I would not mind 2nd BOF if its done right.
    I mean BOF was full of flaws but it was a hoot and if this drama tones down the OTT or reduce those flaws, it will be great.

  22. 22 Appelsin

    They make a cute couple. I bet they will have good chemistry… Definitely, I’m watching it :D

  23. 23 bebeswtz

    Yea…. Aside from different casting, I really don’t see a difference between this drama and BOF =.=

    • 23.1 Momoi

      You mean how there is a poor girl and rich guy? Because that’s all we really know so far.

  24. 24 Penny

    “It’s okay baby!”Hahaha Just watched that like, 15 times. Did not get old. Snerk!

  25. 25 doublen

    When I saw Lee Min Ho’s outfit, firstly, I thought it looks good only because he is wearing it (with quite confidence). Secondly, I remembered his ridiculous fashion from BBF. Thankfully, he has a nice haircut this time (Lee Min Ho probably made a note in his contract – no more ajumma perms).

  26. 26 redfox

    aaand my attempt to get my good friend into kdramas through the cute overload —-FAILED. bahaaa why she said—- baaahaaahaaa no, I will not tell you you´ll be sad. she doesn´t like woo bin… she said—-bahhaaahhaaaaa no I cant.

    urrrrghhh

    I thought this might have the same effect as BOF which pulled in a lot of new fans.

    nah. I am still alone *stands in the middle of the country, wind blowing* no intelligent life on Planet Estonia. *rides into the night* the quest goes on.

    • 26.1 MariD

      Lol. Don’t feel bad. Sometimes you just can’t win people over. I tried with my friend had her watched “You’re beautiful” she did & she loved it, marathon it in one day. Yet she just did not feel like watching other dramas. I was very sad, I wanted a spazzing buddy.

    • 26.2 LoveIt

      I don’t find Woo Bin attractive either. He looks like an alien to me. His eyes are too far apart.

    • 26.3 redfox

      I used to think that as well, I admit, but I decided it would be really bratty to judge another persons´ face. He looks unique. But my friend used words like “monster”, and an r word. that was too much. his seemingly gentle personality makes him cute. no matter the eyes…

  27. 27 Brian

    GUYS IT WOULD ONLY BE A 2ND BOF IF IT DIDNT HAVE ITS OKAY BABY IN ITTTT DUHHH

  28. 28 mira

    BOF was the first kdrama I tried but totally couldn’t proceed beyond 3-4 episodes. It ruined a great manga/story Hana Yori Dango (my favorite manga of all time).
    So I went back to Jdrama and manga…
    Of-course until I met dear Full House and never looked back ha ha
    Well if they can do it right it will be likable I believe. But if they do it like BOF then…

    • 28.1 Omona

      excuse me??

      BOF was a mess, but the manga is also I mess.

      I read it all and got traumatized.

      The main girl got too much abused and treated badly there. I still can’t get how she could fell for the main and not stay with Ren! He was just perfect and fell for her in the end…huhuhuhu

      the manga just dragged until it could, milking their fans until the end that was open ended and you should watch the movie to see the real end WTF. Never I was so angry with such overrated manga!

      • 28.1.1 KimYoonmi

        The J-drama was better than the manga, though. Had everything I wanted the manga to have.

        I didn’t like the Korean version or TW version either.

        For Heirs, I’ll give it a fair shake. I mean is KES and she doesn’t copy. She just likes a lot of literary flair. If she switches with the Hong Sisters’ style, though I’m going to call this a strange year of dramas.

        • 28.1.1.1 zsa

          exactly…J version BOF was the best, no one does Domyouji better or Makino…both first and second installments…the movie…I didn’t like…

        • 28.1.1.2 Momoi

          ehh I was okay with the Jdrama. I saw it before the K version. I hated how violent it was and how okay that was. GJP was ahrdly ever violent, just mean.

          • 28.1.1.2.1 redfox

            I disagree he lashed out many times he felt like he was standing up against the world and had to defend himself even if he didnt
            but I agree, the japanese version was brutal at parts. MatsuJun was way more intense and kind of psychotic than LMH

      • 28.1.2 Ikgurl

        Well i think the taiwanese version “meteor garden” was the best version

  29. 29 Nilechoclat

    Who has Allergy from BOF don’t watch this drama seriously judging and make this drama is a failure mistake in drama land …….?
    When the pics and teaser every one just release a statement that drama is BOF 2 can I ask :
    1. Do you watch this drama before us ??
    2. Do you Know KES so she give you her story ??
    seriously when the people judging the Cake before eating how can you judge the cake without tasting if you just hate the Cake and you will have nausea from it Don’t eat it …
    Don’t Eat it no one tell you to eat .

    don’t watch it.
    I really don’t like people who make those negative comments without watching . :(

    • 29.1 Omona

      lol this comment I can’t.

      Based on her last dramas, you can see and know what the writer will bring on or at least what expect.

      Her last works weren’t that good too, overated is the word.

      We didn’t watch the drama, but they already gave us the plot and by it we can know where the story will go or is trying to go, someone smart can know this much.

      ”Don’t watch it” who are you to say this to someone?

      The story can be trash but I’ll watch if there is the actor I like and his character is good at least.

      And people can still dislike a drama but watch it for some character.

      See bof I hated it but because of second couple I watched it…

      • 29.1.1 Nilechoclat

        I watched BOF once but when I finished ,I don’t Have those sensitive comments even the drama didn’t give me the Fullness but I watched I love some points and hate other points .
        I will watch Heirs and I will judge by myself not from above or below comments which share negative emotions , I don’t care but to keep whining bcz this drama I don’t find the logic in those comments .

        • 29.1.1.1 redfox

          *pats on the shoulder* well good for you. ok, ok. got to sleep.

          • 29.1.1.1.1 Nilechoclat

            Sorry I can’t sleep bcz it is really Hot Today .

          • 29.1.1.1.2 nomad

          • 29.1.1.1.4 jhu

            lol. this entire thread is making me weep.

      • 29.1.2 KimYoonmi

        Uhhh… BOF was written by Yoon Ji Ryun who is not KES.

        Second, writers change all the time. You don’t know what it has until you actually see an episode. I’ve had writers I’ve hated their guts for *cough* The other Hong Sister *cough* and then bite me later.

        Let’s just face it, Over the Rainbow was crap almost up there with Prince’s First Love and Thousand Years of Love. However, I still gave them a fair shake and was rewarded with The King2Hearts.

        And I’ve had directors and writer combinations I’ve loved solidly and they just go and make crap later because they rest on their laurels. Dong Yi…. and then you get the crap called Horse Doctor. (And I watched the entire thing, waiting and waiting for them to turn it around…)

        And KES runs literary, which is not popular with this website’s hosts. Having an opinion that it’s trash, doesn’t mean it’s universal for everyone.

        I give everyone a fair shake to improve, probably with more patience than most.

        And no, I don’t expect you to agree, but it would be nice to see respect for other people’s opinions and the ability to *maybe consider giving everyone a fair chance to succeed. I’ll even watch Michael Bay if you stops giving me nausea and ADD. (holding a shot for more than 3 seconds)

        • 29.1.2.1 pogo

          Hey KimYoonMi! (nice to see you again, we missed you on Master’s Sun recaps)

          I do agree, writers can be hit-and-miss and even if Kim Eun-seok has certain known weaknesses based on a pattern in her completed series, I will still give this a try. The cast – especially main and second leads – are too interesting for me not to.

    • 29.2 Birdie

      Totally agree. Can’t judge a book by its cover ,can you?
      How can one know how a fruit taste like unless one eats it?

      Btw BOF is one of the best known kdramas worldwide and had high ratings in Korea. I like ,millions of others love it , flaws and all. As opinions are subjective, many of us love the awesome chemistry between the main leads,Jandi character was brought to life by GHS , and GJP wouldn’t be GJP without the curly hair or LMH .
      BOF is one of the most entertaining kdramas. After 4 years we are still talking about it. lol

      • 29.2.1 Kiara

        And there are those who asked themselves later…. “what in the hell was I thinking?”

        • 29.2.1.1 D's handphone

          Yuppp that was me… BOF is a one time ride.. it wont hold a second watching, better stick to cuts still floating on YT

          • 29.2.1.1.1 Caitlyn

            Funnily enough, I watched it again to see if it was still as bad as I remembered it being, and I actually enjoyed it. I think it was because I had no expectations and knew what was going to happen, so I could just appreciate it for the pretty.

  30. 30 messi

    Hate BOF as much as you want but fact is that it was a superhit in Korea with over 30% ratings and its popularity worldwide is second to none.
    Secret Garden was another such drama with both domestic and international recognition.
    Heirs will be good because it has writer of SG and setup of BOF.

    • 30.1 Monstermom

      “Heirs will be good because it has writer of SG and setup of BOF.”

      You’re equating popularity with quality, which I (strongly) disagree with…

      • 30.1.1 PPasun

        But popularity IS one of, if not, the main factors deciding whether a drama is “good” or not. Sure, a good plot, characters, acting, directing, cinematography, all those are ingredients of a good drama. But if the drama lacks the power to draw in viewers, that is not such a good drama either. After all, we are talking about TV dramas specifically tailored to attract as many viewers as possible, not some artzy-fartzy production meant only for critics.

        • 30.1.1.1 Monstermom

          I will agree with mass appeal = successful, but not good. As you say plot, characters, acting etc cannot make something good without also being able to meld it all together and create something which draws people in – the same is also true in reverse, you need also the first things you mentioned, not just the popularity.

          And I don’t think it’s necessary to make it into extremes like good TV dramas or artsy fartsy critics bait… It’s possible to have artistic aspirations while also wanting to entertain!

          • 30.1.1.1.1 PPasun

            This is your opinion of what is a good drama, which I respect. But other people have other ideas, which is not wrong either. What we consider a good drama is very subjective.

          • 30.1.1.1.2 Monstermom

            Which is pretty much my point, Messi is drawing a logic argument which is flawed:
            BOF is popular.
            SG is popular.
            Heirs is BOF+SG, thus Heirs will be good.

            Does not compute. An understandable logic conclusion from this argument would be “Heirs will be popular”, but since popular and good are not synonymous you can’t get to there from here…

            I’m not saying people can’t find BOF and secret garden to be very, very good – we will never all agree on everything and that’s a good thing! I’m simply pointing out that popular and good aren’t the same thing.

          • 30.1.1.1.3 PPasun

            Buwahahaha, never realized you were critiquing on her powers of logic.

    They better use “Almoooosttt Paaarrraadddiiissee” at least once or else I’ll be very disappointed!

    • 31.1 Sunny

      LOL!!!! Your comment was absolutely awesome

    • 31.2 ilikemangos

      because of this comment i decided to listen to it again.
      Ah, the memories come flooding back.

  32. 32 Sana96

    Only LMH can wear a suit like that one and own it. xD Just like with his pink pants~

    • 32.1 redfox

      I had the urge to write on his twitter page today that he should wear pink pants in this drama at least once. maybe when doing something very shady.

      • 32.1.1 lola

        i think i saw in bts pics that he wears some orange pants

    • 32.2 skelly

      They weren’t pink. They were Salmon.

      • 32.2.1 Cynthia

        Actually, they were FLAMINGO.
        :-)

        • 32.2.1.1 dramabliss

          LOL. The famous flamingo pants of City Hunter.

    • 32.3 kumi

      Real men wear pink.

    • 32.4 Sana96

      @Redfox: DO IT! I want to see Pink pants again. xD
      @Skelly: My reference to pink pants came from City Hunter, the first episode, airport scene. The first time I saw them, I was like what? Pink pants? xD

      • 32.4.1 redfox

        shall I? … ok I must be mad. shall I hit send. omo, crazy ajumma. oh dear. I DID IT.

        • 32.4.1.1 redfox

          *embarrassed*

      • 32.4.2 skelly

        @Sana, I know, I saw those City Hunter pants and they were the pinkiest pants ever, but my fashionista daughter insisted they were actually “salmon” not “pink.” I’ve laughed about that ever since.

        • 32.4.2.1 redfox

          pink is the mother of all pinks, but salmon is just the youngest daughter of the sisterhood of pinks.

          • 32.4.2.1.1 skelly

            LOL! The sisterhood of the traveling pink pants?

          • 32.4.2.1.2 redfox

            oh yes.

            with one younger brother who overshadows all the sisters.

  33. 33 Quiet Thought

    The only way this would really be plausible would be if these characters were what they look like, which is 30 year-olds who are part of a high-end therapy program that requires them to act out their high school fantasies. Of course, behind the scenes is a clever prosecutor who is certain that one of them is the psychopath who murdered four students at Whispering Corridors High and made all their deaths look like typical classroom accidents.

    Can I get a contract to script-doctor this series when it starts tanking around episode twelve because the writer and director are both obviously clueless?

    • 33.1 AnotherFan

      “30 year-olds who are part of a high-end therapy program that requires them to act out their high school fantasies.” I could not stop laughing!!! Thank you :-)

    • 33.2 AnotherFan

      And in all seriousness, I much prefer the plot line you are presenting here. Hope you get the contract. And please let me know if you do. I’d definitely be tuning in..

    • 33.3 mwg

      Bless you. I want you to come over and fix all my tv.

    • 33.4 jhu

      Such good ideas may not get translated into reality, but they do not go to waste on forums such as these full of folks like us looking for better alternatives.

      Sigh…if only you could body swap with the writer. I’m sure she’d be all up for it.

  34. 34 Badmamajama

    This is going to be a mess, I can feel it in my spirit.

    • 34.1 Yep

  35. 35 Brittni

    Yeah sorry but all I could think when I saw Lee Min Ho’s suit was that undershirt looks exactly like my bedspread. and now I’m wondering how they got into my house and stole my blankets. Not that I would mind if Lee Min Ho decided he wanted something off my bed…. ;)

    • 35.1 redfox

      oh LOL.
      well I am glad it was YOUR sheet. Had it been mine, he´d look like an asylum patient, it is with wide light and dark blue stripes.

    • 35.2 skelly

      That made me laugh: Lee Min Ho suddenly appears in your bedroom, with no shirt on. “I’ve come here…for your sheet!” Rips sheet off bed, runs off.

  36. 36 Divyrus

    Through the initial news to endless casting through stills through promotions, I held on with skepticism !

    Now with trailer, am downright SCARED ! 😳
    I should prepare myself for this to be a horrible mess !

    • 36.1 nomad

      U know what, though…even if it turned out to be a mess (and I hope not), we’ll all still be here, talking and having a blast making fun of it!

    This better be a good drama with a cast like this.

    “loaded” would not be an adjective I’d associate with that getup. Maybe pimptastic. But not loaded.

    • 38.1 jhu

      lol. am laughing all over myself.

  39. 39 justaperson

    I can’t wait to see this show and I seriously don’t care what people think about it. Some of them are so sure that it is going to be just like BOF so what?! if not for the plot I will watch it just for the actors. Soo anyway people stop being so negative about this show!! try to enjoy it and if you don’t like it watch different drama ;)

    • 39.1 Sana96

      My sentiments exactly! I really just want to enjoy the show, because my two most favourite actors (LMH and PSH) got cast together. I’m so excited! :D

    • 39.2 Momoi

      MTE!

      I swear my thoughts always rail against the thoughts of the folks on here. I like the stuff and see the good in stuff they don’t, while seeing the flaws of things they love.

      I like going into a drama without any expectations, unlike most of the readers on here. I won’t be surprised if it isn’t that great, especially since I’m not crazy about the writer. But i don’t understand why everyone thinks it’s going to be a hot mess and exactly like BOF, when all we know is that she’s a poor girl surrounded by rich people.

      • 39.2.1 justaperson

        I agree in 100%!! We know so little about the plot that we can be suprised.

    • 39.3 PPasun

      Based on this writer’s past work, I’m not expecting a refreshingly new kind of drama, either. But I’m going to enjoy it nonetheless because one, I’m a fan of LMH and two, even though Kim Eun Sook isn’t exactly known for great plots, she does have a way with words. She came up with some of the most famous, instantaneously recognizable K-drama lines such as “in here is you” and “Kim suanmoo…” So it is the same old story, but what piques my interest is how is she going to tell it and how is LMH going to act it.

  40. 40 meh

    IDK why LMH is backtracking a high school based drama again.. he was on the w/ personal taste and city hunter so why? he’s 26 for God sake, his contemporaries are now playing the role of professionals and yet he goes back on making h.s dramas..

    • 40.1 meh

      *he was on the peak w/

    • 40.2 momosa

      It’s ok baby! Love him in no matter what he role he’s in, pink or orange pants, curly or messy hair, smiling or emoting, speaking Korean or Inglisssh, 18 or 28 :)

    • 40.3 Momoi

      He said he’s wanted to do a H.S. drama again. I guess he enjoys that stuff. Plus he needs a good hit after Faith.

    • 40.4 PPasun

      LMH has often said during his 20s, he wants to do a lot of roles that he can do only when he’s young and pretty. He probably thinks this is the last point in his life when he can act a highschooler. Since it was another highschooler role in BOF that launched his career and brought him such a success and fame, he’s probably bidding farewell to his 20s with one last reprise performance.

      While I agree that he doesn’t exactly have a baby face, I don’t agree that LMH looks like a thirty-something either. He looks his age, which is 27. He’s still young and pretty enough to play a highschooler, albeit one that repeated his junior year several times, maybe. ㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋ

  41. 41 jkay

    I actually like LMH’s suit!

    So many good looking people in one drama. I’m not gonna lie, I’ll try this for the eye-candies alone. Heh. Buuuuut how am I suppose to believe that the main characters are still in high-school????

  42. 42 pogo

    Kim Woo-bin in motion with THAT HAIR——–>>> stone-dead pogo. Just saying.

    I kind of like some of the crazy fashions in the pics (floral suit ahoy!), and love what Kim Ji-won is wearing, it looks like expensive and conceptual fashion – a slight upgrade from the usual chaebol couture.

    • 42.1 pogo

      also, re: the OTP, I am cautiously ok with how Lee Min-ho and Park Shin-hye are vibing, though not sure if I feel it.

      It really doesn’t help that they’re following in the time slot of Master’s Sun, which has the hottest OTP chemistry of 2013 and is not afraid to pimp that as hard as possible. (bts interviews of So Ji-sub and Gong Hyo-jin are just about enough to kill me)

      • 42.1.1 Celery

        LOL, have you seen the latest oppa/baby BTS?

        I really detest the idea of shipping actors together for many logical reasons but blushing GHJ and shyadorkable SJS ain’t helping. Ain’t.

        :0

        • 42.1.1.1 Celery

          Wait a min, on my xxxth rewatch, I think I can conclude that both of them were blushing. Right??

          Burning hot chemistry is playing tricks on my retinas ARGH

        • 42.1.1.2 pogo

          They need to stop being so flirty in bts (I died when he complimented her legs lol), I would die of happiness if they got together.

          But I’m convinced they are trolling us, they would never be so obviously flirty if they actually had something there. Because they are nuclear levels of hot, both on and off screen.

          • 42.1.1.2.1 Celery

            I died when he giggled off-screen (there was an audible HAHA and a slight glimpse of his body/shadow moving forward) when GHJ said she has been begging for him to take off his coat so that she could touch part of his bare arm. In that same interview where they were complimenting each other to the high heavens O.O

            HAHA, denial is kicking in for me too because that’s what I think too. But how the hell does one manufacture blushes? Why rehearse your lines right behind her when you are suppose to start walking in at the other end? Why rehearse stroking her hair (LOL)?

            (Fervently holding on to faint hopes of a possibility between them, lol.)

            I’m just grateful for their synergy, either way. And I’m also settling to end this post with a more sane statement.

    Oooh are they trying to hook Kim Woo Bin’s character up with Kim Ji Won’s character? Hrmmm…

    With every new role I am seeing her in, I am starting to look forward to her less and less. I think maybe I’m starting to see the limitations to her acting or it’s that she is creating a niche for herself in the realm of actresses who get all the snobby roles. I hope her role is a bit different in this, though. She can do so much more!

    • 45.1 lola

      they’re step siblings though with no blood relations
      i hope KES is brave enough to let them got romantically involved in the drama

      • 45.1.1 canxi

        Lol, brave with romantically involved step siblings? It happens all the time in dramas. It happens too much, even. @____@

        It would be braver to NOT let them get involved, ahaha but who knows?

    • 45.2 goldeng

      I agree with you! I dont really know what to think of Kim ji won’s acting.. i dunno if its her acting or the roles she chooses are off. In Whats up, she played a naive -read dumb- immature countryside girl that could barely walk around without harming herself… her musical parts were impressive but overall I hated her character then saw her playing a snobby annoying character and didnt like her either… I hope she can be more convincing in this drama.

      • 45.2.1 canxi

        I liked her character in What’s Up until she started hanging out with the “popular” crowd. I even liked her character in High Kick 3 up until the point where I realized she kind of didn’t care about anything, lol. I just don’t want to see her get pigeon-holed, so I hope the role offers more than what it seems to.

  46. 46 TS

    The Woobie scenes went too fast. This is causing me great anxiety…

  47. 47 Oluchi

    I don’t get people, what other story line were you expecting? Hollywood gives us the same romantic comedy but different casts and we all love it. What’s wrong with another Cinderella story?

    • 47.1 Jooona

      the teaser look so lame…and the dynamic look like they want to create the same simple setting with AGD, the 1st teaser of this drama is downgrade from her past work..

      honestly from this drama if they want that simple setting to work the casts must have great chemistry but im kind of worried with that here based on the casts

      rather than KES im more worried with the director since he never direct romantic comedy or even teen drama all his past work is melodrama romance or family drama

      and if there is people who ask why LMH and PSH chose this work that was because of they need hit drama after their latest flop dramas

      • 47.1.1 Jooona

        this post isn’t a reply for you oluchi only my general opinion based on first teaser..

    • 47.2 canxi

      Well, I think many of us were hoping Park Shin Hye’s character would also be an heiress and would be more of a drama about rich kids behaving badly lol, with love in the mix! More like Gossip Girl than Boys Before Flowers, in other words. I think watching two rich kids clashing and then falling in love would be really fun, too!

      There is nothing wrong with a Cinderella story but there’s nothing exciting about seeing the same old thing time and time again. Rom-Coms are very formulaic, so no one expects something completely new each time.

      I don’t think anyone is hating the Cinderelly-ness, it’s just we hope there are some new things in the mix, as well. And maybe even hoping the lower class girl is not just characterized around being lower class (as is done a lot with “Candy” heroines).

      • 47.2.1 pogo

        I feel like the trailer has more of a feel of The O.C. (the setting, the poor-outsider in a rich-kid world) than Gossip Girl.

        And in case anyone has forgotten, Gossip Girl was as wretched a hot mess as the worst moments of BOF, with characters who were so stupid that I’m amazed they managed to remember their own names.

        Let’s not behave like it was some great achievement of tv just because it had one competent actor in the mix, please.

        • 47.2.1.1 canxi

          I’ve never watch the O.C. but, um, that’s not what I meant…

          Just that I (and some others) were expecting the show to be more like Gossip Girl with a bunch of well-to-do kids getting into ridiculous situations and falling in love. I never said that Gossip Girl was amazing but just likened it to the vibe I was getting from Heirs when I first heard about it. They were both a mess, yeah, but Gossip Girl and Boys Over Flowers are two different sides of the same coin–I mean the subject matter is more or less the same, but the way they go about it is very different. And with there already being so many Boys Over Flowers stories, now, honestly, a Gossip Girl would be kind of funny and welcome. Especially if it means the heroine gets to be as well-to-do as everyone else as well.

          But, all in all I don’t mind if PSH plays the poor-outsider just I hope that they don’t characterize her around that. Like, I want her to have some goals and to prove herself among all the rich kids on her own terms and not just through gaining acceptance through a rich boyfriend or having all her struggles be for the sake of being with him.

          • 47.2.1.1.1 pogo

            I agree, I’d want the heroine to have more going on with her arc than just the boyfriend too. And I should have clarified, I don’t mean you singularly with the ref. to not treating Gossip Girl like it’s great, but a lot of fans on Heors threads have been behaving like it was, and I feel a little perspective is needed.

          • 47.2.1.1.2 canxi

            Ah, I see. Well, even though it was a mess it was still pretty entertaining up until the 6th season which I never finished, haha.

            Heirs can be either be terribly bad or awesome. I feel like it may be both at the same time if that is possible, ahaha. I just want it to be fun. It will be really popular, though, that’s for sure. The casting director really lucked out with this one.

  48. 48 Oluchi

    Who’s the guy in the blue sweater? I think he’s super cute

    • 48.1 soprection

      Kang Min Hyuk, also of CN Blue.

  49. 49 soprection

    I actually think the outfits in these pictures are much better than the ones I’ve seen in the stills so far. Yes, they’re ostentatious but I don’t have a problem with that given the setting. The one of Lee Minho and Park ShinHye looks like it’s for a make-up CF though.

    Park ShinHye’s intro actually did have a little crown above it though – it says she’s the heir to poverty (or so the subs told me). The wide shots look lovely at the beginning – so hey, at least the cinematography should be good!

    MinHyuk looks as cute as a button!

  50. 50 Celery

    I dunno, but every time I see that couple shot of LMH and PSH, I think of a certain brand of fabric softener…

    Zero chemistry, zilch. She had more chemistry with LJS, and that’s saying a lot because there was none there too. I see potential in her and KWB though.

    • 50.1 lola

      lol i see it that way too
      i do think she’ll probably have more chemistry with KWB or even Minhyuk

    • 50.2 pogo

      Same here, I see more potential with Woobie too.

      PSH and LMH are not as flat as they were in their CF but I’ll approach this one with caution and be prepared for Second Lead Syndrome.

      • 50.2.1 Celery

        Which CF? Fabric softener? :DDDD

        Okay, need to see it to cross-reference levels of non-chemistry.

        • 50.2.1.1 pogo

          Celery – just youtube ‘Park Shin Hye Etude house CF with Lee Min Ho’, you’ll get the one I’m talking about.

          (compared to the near-eyefrakking she was giving Jang Geun-seok in her Etude CF with him – the one with the kiss – this was stone cold. But even the Heirs trailer is an improvement on the LMH/PSH CF, trust me)
