    Watching “The Heirs” for more than once makes you discover a lot of things, for one there are a lot of small details that you missed during the first and second replays, and those small details are the most important ones that made the the drama more endearing and heartwarming… love it much and more

    hyls Says:

    @OK OK OK 2545 : i like HEIRS dont get me wrong but you have to accept it’s also popular bcuz of L Minho .. Park shin hye was a bad casting ..Made Eun Sang the same type boring stiff character she does in every drama of her

    I think L Minho had to try very hard to make it work between Kim Tam and Eun sang.
    I’m telling you that actress needs to get some feedback from her own managers… She even said in SBS awards that “she just stands stills” in love scenes.. Like seriously. HOW LAME AND BORING ANSWER IS THAT? Just like her acting. If you are an actress you need to get into character and don’t look like you are being almost disgustingly forced to hug , touch or kiss your co-star… She only knows how to frown and cry over everything
    And it had nothing to do with eun sang’ s role… See the actresses in this same writer’ s dramas (Secret Garden, GentlemansDignity) the male leads are like Kim Tan , very in-love- forward a bit too strong on the female lead and yet Han Ji won (SG for example) didn’t look constipated or in pain in any of their couple scenes even when she got forced-kissed by the lead actor

    I like the drama but Park SHye was hard to digest. I still wish another new more versatile and relaxed actress would have been casted as Eun Sang. I could like HEIRS more , HEIRS would’ve been still successfully with or without PSH. She lacked a lot.

    OK OK OK Says:

    @2696 hyls

    No matter what you say, its in the eyes of the beholders.

    Park Shin Hye looks and acting is soothing to my eyes.

    I am telling you too.
    I also like Lee Min Ho. I didn’t says Lee Min Ho is not popular.

    If Lead actor change to Jang Geun Suk + Park Shin Hye

    or Lee Min Ho + Ha Ji Won

    I will still vote for Heirs because all the names mention here are some of my top top favorite actors and actresses. :)

    I am away from this blog for quite a while and back today.
    I am happy many viewers like HEIRS :)

    why this drama became number 1? unfair

    Crap Says:

    This show is boring and predicatable. It’s like watching a rerun of ’90210′or ‘Save By The Bell’ LOL which is horrible. I think Won Bin did a much better job than Min Ho and Park Shin Hye..OMG! She’s so boring and ‘stiff’ everytime she appears just do yourself a favour and *fast forward*….boring. WOuld I watch any of her another shows? No thanks…I rather watch news or Jerry Springer. People that says this is the best drama they have ever watched obviously haven’t been watching enough dramas in their life.
