Looks like there is more kissy kissy time ahead for the OTP in Heirs/The Inheritors. I wished I cared more but it’s hard to care when Tan pretty much forces his will on Eun Sang. Even if she maybe likes it, I’m not a fan of the method of taking under the assumption that the other person is willing to give. That includes kisses, hand holding, hugs, and whatever else involves personal space. I think the only reason the romance in Heirs hasn’t driven me insane yet is because I do know Eun Sang likes Tan. Otherwise I would have broken up with this drama a long time ago. It’s also another reason why Young Do-Eun Sang alterna-shippers are crazy IMO, because if all she feels for him is loathing plus a smidge of pity, then he needs to stop hounding her every chance he gets. And no, being lonely and having an f-cked up childhood does not given him license to behave like a lout without being called out for being one. Same goes for Tan, he’s pretty darn ass backwards in how he romances a girl, but like I said, he is the lesser of two evils because Eun Sang happens to like him back.
Whatever decision Eun Sang makes at the end of episode 11 (“Take my hand”) doesn’t appear to deter Tan from continuing to pursue her. You know what? I would be much more supportive of Tan’s approach if he actually had an idea of how to make their relationship a workable reality. Promises of I’m trying and trust me mean very little when Eun Sang is faced with very imminent and real threats of being homeless as well as jobless for her mom. Tan just does without thinking sometimes, and in episode 11 he did it at a very critical moment. I do want this couple to earn their happily ever after, but it’s hard to root for the journey they are currently on when I see Tan driving blind. This drama is already mired in so much staring I can’t handle it if Tan and Eun Sang even “break up” for a few episodes, because then there’d be nothing else going on. All the other stuff is window dressing anyways with how little effort Kim Eun Seok has made to dig deeper. At least the production isn’t skimping on OTP fanservice and there will be two more kisses coming up. In one of the pre-kiss pics, poor Park Shin Hye looks like the heroine in a horror movie when the axe-wielding murderer is confronting her. Can the drama please make her less skittish (I don’t care anymore if she has good reason to be), and maybe let her jump her man and make out with him anytime she can. It’s not like being passionate is contrary to her concerns about dating Tan. Just get some action now and think of the long term later. These kids are supposed to be teenagers, I wished they all acted more hormonal for once.
