Heirs – Ep 15 & 16 Review

Where I would normally do a recap of these episodes, I’ve found that there are a ton that exist out there… why double the work?  🙂  I like the recaps and two different people, Dramabeans and Joonni over at Soompi.  Here are the links to both, and they are great.  However, my personal opinion and review are likely to be different… read on!

As for my personal review of the episodes… Ep 15 was such a great episode, but Ep 16 knocked it out of the park!  Episode 15 really cemented the relationship between Kim Tan and Eun Sang for me.  Not just because they both announced it front of the whole world with the forehead kiss, or even the admission of all secrets, but because the push/pull of the relationship has changed to a mutual giving.  She loves him, admit it, and even acts on it (doesn’t matter if she’s a bit drunk).

The amount of cuteness in this episode has quadrupled since, say, episode 1-10.  The bromance between Young Do and Kim Tan is finally taking shape as they both grow up and get past the angsty issues of adolescence and it’s quite a site to behold.  Young Do and Eun Sang, even if he doesn’t want to admit it, are in a much more comfortable place and that leads to even more cuteness.  There are so many feels going on between Kim Tan and Won that I can’t stand it sometimes.  I think, in the end, Won will recognize Tan is doing what Won wanted to do and just not giving a damn about the consequences… that’s what love is all about.  But I fear it will be too late for Won and Tan’s relationship.  It’s awful because so much of this has been orchestrated by the father (evil SOB) who really doesn’t seem to give a crap about either son so long as the business thrives.  I know this is a common kdrama plot, but I really hate to see the treatment he dishes out constantly to everyone around him… he needs to be knocked off his mountain, seriously.

Episode 16 continued the feels, and threw so much more at me I could hardly watch the episode all in one sitting.  Park Shin Hye can act, that girl is DAMN good, and this episode used all her skills.  Lee Min Ho… when you do a crying scene, I want to rip out whomever’s heart just to make you stop.  Alot of people have posted comments on his acting ability during this drama… but you can’t say crap on these last 2 episodes… hell, 4 really.  He’s become his character and has sucked me right in too.  Watching him stare daggers at both his brother and father was awesome, but seeing him cry at the end… ugh!  Why you gotta go there?!  I was a mess.

HUGE props, also, to PSH for allowing LMH to do his thing and make a hell of a kiss scene!  It played out perfectly with the current situation of both characters… desperate, scared, and in love.  It was all right there in that closet.  No matter what dad does, he’s going to fight for her till the very end.  I think Won took a page out of his notebok going to visit HJ and asking her to go to the US for three years.  Seeing the desperation in his eyes, she finally breaks down after the takes a good look at Won.  I’m really looking forward to something good from these two as well.

The relationship between Eun Sang’s mom and Kim Tan’s mom is beautiful and funny.  I can’t wait to see the reaction if/when they return to the house, or at least mom does.  There is such a friendship there, it’s just too cute.  BTW, ES’s mom going all CSI on the safe was one of the funniest things I’ve seen in this drama so far!!!

So, these last two episodes were heart wrenching, touching, and just all in all wonderful.  I can’t wait for next week to see what happens and I’m very glad we get 2 more weeks of Heirs even though I still think it’s too short 😦

      I had a writing history class in college that was very similar, it’s where I learned to some of my favorite books like The Oddesy and Illiad. It’s hard to find the same depth of writing today, though George R R Martin came close with his Game of Thrones series. The show is amazing but the books are even better. You should also read The Art of War if you haven’t, that one is good too 🙂
