I love how predictable yet increasingly satisfying Heirs/The Inheritors has been. This includes SBS releasing the preview for next week’s episodes on the Saturday re-runs of the previous week’s episodes. Thanks for breaking up the monotony of the weight and adding little nuggets to chew over. Next week is right on cue for a Kim Eun Sook drama, which is the angst always hit smack dab in the face come episode 15. It’s not like Eun Sang and Tan were falling in love in secret or their own little idyllic safe haven like in the US. They are in Seoul, living under the same roof and attending the same high school, and little by little everyone saw it and figured out what was happening. While I have a sliver of sympathy and interest in Young Do’s unresolved anger over his broken friendship with Tan, that story line was driving the angst for so many episodes when the Big Bad was always Chairman Daddy. Looks like he’s starting to unleash the full weight of his disappointment and fury on Tan and its not going to be pleasant to watch. Sometimes I wished Won would at least fight for Hyun Joo just a tiny bit and maybe give up when the going got tough. Inside he bailed at the first second, thereby making him such an relationship tool. Same goes for his issues with Tan, which are all just him projecting their future conflict and treating him like because of what may happen. Is it so hard to cross a bridge once you get there, Won?
I do like the new and improved Eun Sang, who massages Tan ego by saying he’s so handsome and then candidly states that she likes him. Was it that hard to just say these words, girl, and then deal with how to make that like last a long time rather than ending abruptly? I do think Chairman Daddy could align with Won to ship Tan off to the US, thereby killing two birds with one stone. Or he’ll pit brother against brother with Eun Sang as a prize for Tan to fight for. I hope Ki Ae ends up being the catalyst to change Chairman Daddy and get him to reconsider his tactics and position. She’s really grown on me and is one of the few adults I enjoy watching. She’s got a majorly big heart and even if her brain is on the fluffy side she’s smart enough where it counts. I’m excited that she’ll face Esther herself and try to extricate her son from an unhappy and unwanted engagement. Esther is so annoying I hope her lingering first love issues with Secretary Yoon will die ASAP. The thought that he has feelings for that lady gives me the shivers, not to mention Rachel and Chan Young as step-siblings is totally ugh. I can’t believe how a week’s worth of good episodes can really rev up my energy and excitement for this drama. Check out the super juicy preview for episode 15 and get ready to hanker down for the impending Heirs storm. Continue reading
