This might be the fastest and hardest I have ever seen a Kim Eun Sook male lead fall for the female lead. I thought I’d seen it all with the infamous Kim Joo Won (Hyun Bin) from Secret Garden when he took one gander at the stunt woman in action Ha Ji Won and fell head over heels for Key Lime (Gil Ra Im). These latest stills of the OTP from Heirs/The Inheritors continue to develop them as adorable in a chaste way. Even if Eun Sang is sleeping and Kim Tan is hovering over her, I never get the sense that he’s restraining himself from ravishing her on the spot. Instead he genuinely looks like he just wants to cover her up with a blanket. It makes sense in the context of them being high school students and all, but it does go against the grain of Kim Eun Sook OTPs which have always been passionate in a way adult way. I feel like it works because Lee Min Ho and Park Shin Hye have a chaste school yard type of chemistry rather than a undressing-you-with-mah-eyes type of piercing attraction. I’m still of the opinion they are so far away from delivering potent romance, but they have me onboard their exiled strangers pseudo-friendship, one bourne of mutual scars and disappointments. I’m waiting for Tan to spend more time with her in Korea, and for Eun Sang to develop more interests outside of working part time jobs and being bitter about her lot in life. Kim likes surfing and writing, what does Eun Sang like? So far all I know is that she wants more free time and enjoys watching horror movies but from the perspective of the serial killers getting along. I do have to credit Kim Eun Sook for always creating intriguing reasons for her drama OTPs to run into each other and hang out. Whatever reason that brings Tan and Eun Sang into spending the night together, I’m hoping she develops their verbal banter beyond the mild sarcasm they current exhibit. I find them quite harmlessly adorable but need to them to let their claws out a bit.
