I haven’t talked specifically about Kang Min Hyuk of CNBlue in the currently airing drama Heirs/The Inheritors in awhile. Blame it on a combination of getting lost in the overrun cast as well as being so sane and awesome of a character there is nothing to discuss in the thoughts section of a recap. Let’s rectify it with a Min Hyuk squee post! It’s not just me who thinks he’s cute as a button, his co-star Park Shin Hye posted a picture collage of her and Min Hyuk hanging out on the set and making darling faces at the camera. It’s actually their second drama together after Heartstrings and this time they play platonic best friends though I wish they got more scenes together. Of the male leads, Chan Young is my favorite character and performance. Kim Woo Bin’s character Young Do is a psychopath and he plays him with so much crazy eyes it’s distracting, Lee Min Ho’s character Tan ranges from somnolent to randomly grabby and I’ve seen so much better out of him, and Choi Jin Hyuk’s character Won needs to get laid and stop being a raging asshole. I went back to read Chan Young’s original character description from the leaked synopsis, and everything is the same except originally he was supposed to still be carrying a torch for Eun Sang and his relationship with Bo Na was supposed to develop in real time during the drama (as opposed to already in place when the drama started). The change was likely due to Jung Yong Hwa not ending up joining Heirs and his band mate Kang Min Hyuk stepping into the same character. Jung Yong Hwa was in discussion for Chan Young and not Young Do, so Kim Eun Seok make some changes along the way as the final casting firmed up. While I’m glad Chan Young doesn’t like Eun Sang that way, it also means Young Do does since K-dramas love triangle and that means more Young Do to annoy me. Though the power of Chan Young is strong indeed in that he’s made me actually find Bo Na less irksome. They are a cute couple and I hope they don’t break up later over the usual stupid rich-poor dichotomy.
