Heirs, you mostly suck and you know it. But I can’t quit you, I just can’t seem to quit you. Maybe its those dang exciting previews at the end of each episode, which folks have rightly pointed out seem to be the highlight of every episode, because what goes on before and after it is just a whole lotta nothing. I’ve been saying for episodes now that the next episode should get better. When they get back to Korea, I said. When they start school, I said. When everyone starts interacting, I said. Will I be jinxing it by saying that the just released long preview for episode 9 looks exciting, and that stuff is actually happening? Is the world of Heirs finally going to spin away from the axis of staring and more staring? I sure hope so, and to spice it up, episode 9 has two major fights. There is a girl bitchdown happening in the bathroom (ahahaha, of course), where Rachel storms in and grabs Eun Sang’s hair in front of Bo Na and Yi Seul. Nice, not that I’m condoning hair-pulling as a method of problem solving, but this drama has no semblance of reality so if there is action I’ll take it. Even more exciting than a catfight is a full blown knock down drag out fight between Tan and Young Do. FINALLY! Those two just need to fight it out, because clearly talking it through is not an option and hugging it out is as likely as Ji Sook and Ki Ae starting to get along and calling each other sisters. Tan starts it by using Lee Min Ho‘s long long legs and shoving it in Young Do’s middle region, who doesn’t take it laying down and flips Tan right over his shoulder. Later both boys are seen with re-arranged faces so I’m assuming the fight got all up close and personal after that. It would be hilarious if both of them got kicked out of Empire High, though of course that can’t happen because we would have no show. Young Do seems to be really into Eun Sang, his interest is honestly even more inexplicable than Tan’s lonely boy glomming into a nice bundle of decent warmness in Eun Sang. Young Do tracks down Eun Sang’s former home, and then goes to the cafe to bug her and even warns away other boys who are harassing her. I know believe Eun Sang is a harassment magnet. Eun Sang and Tan’s relationship seems to take multiple steps forward, with hand holding on the street to Eun Sang confessing she does like Tan back. The big kicker is that Won spots them together outside the house, and what big brother does with that knowledge will go a long way to my disliking him more or starting to change my opinion about him. All in all, this preview doesn’t look bad at all.
