With the sprawling young cast of Heirs, there is bound to be reunions at some point down the road in either a drama or movie. Some reunions would be right up my alley, like Kim Woo Bin and Park Shin Hye doing a drama together one day that would finally let the only pairing that worked for me in Heirs become a reality in another setting. Other pairings just seem so random, like the news that Park Shin Hye and Kang Na Heul are currently considering the rom-com movie Happy Facebook. They would play a couple in the movie, to be directed by the director behind the Yoon Kye Sang and Kim Ha Neul movie Lovers of 6 Years. I like both Park Shin Hye and Kang Ha Neul, don’t get me wrong, but if there was an Heirs reunion I really need her with Woo Bin as soon as possible.
I think Park Shin Hye and Kang Ha Neul will be a fantastic pairing for the movie, despite my initial disappointment the male lead wasn’t Woo Bin. Kang Ha Neul is so deserving of his slow but steady rise, not only a humble hard working acting but also very very talented. I’m also really happy both of them have solid movie careers developing, dramas are nice and all for viewers to spend longer stretches of time watching their faves on TV, but no young actor can reach the next level without gaining legitimacy at some point in Chungmuro. Lee Min Ho recently got there with Gangnam 1970, while other popular twenty-something IT boys of K-ent all have hit movies like Yoo Ah In (Touch as Iron, Punch), Song Joong Ki (Werewolf Boy), Kim Soo Hyun (Thieves, Secretly Greatly), Lee Jong Seok (The Face Reader, Hot-blooded Youth), Kim Woo Bin (Friends 2, The Technicians), etc. Park Shin Hye is one of the few twenty-something leading ladies with a few movie successes under her belt already (Miracle in Cell #7, Cyrano Agency).
