Rating : 4/5





Hi. everyone!

I'm back with a review of 2013 most anticipated drama, The Heirs~♥ The Heirs; or also known as The Inheritors was definitely one of the most anticipated drama because of the well-known casts and producer & script writer. The Heirs is the production of 'Tazza' and 'Midas' PD Kang Shin Hyo and 'Secret and Garden' and 'Gentlemen's Class' writer Kim Eun Sook. ()  Hallyu stars Lee Min Ho, Park Shin Hye, Choi Jin Hyuk, and Kim Woo Bin; also Idol singer turned actor/actress f(x)'s Krystal, , ZE:A's Hyungsik, and CNBLUE's Minhyuk are chosen to star in this drama. 


Despite the star-studded, for me, The Heirs is somewhat disappointing. I had very high expectations on this drama because the hype was no joke. Thing that let me down the most is the story-line and character trait. Well, i had no complains about the eye candy lol. In fact, the eye candy is the reason i decided to watch the drama till the end. Or should i say Kim Woo Bin is the reason~? lol  (◕‿◕✿)

Anyway, check out my The Heirs review below! ^3^



 ❥ ❥ ❥ ❥ ❥ THE HEIRS : LOVE & HATE   ❥ ❥ ❥ ❥ ❥ 

LOVE:
The Eye Candies ♥3

And some bromance~ :3


And as if it's not enough...

Can't even ask for more. <3

YES, OPPA. YES. O<-<



LOVE:
The bad boy Choi Young Do a.k.a Kim Woo Bin

 

Kim Woo Bin is surely get my 'Boyfriend Of The Year' award from me. :P His character, Young Do is such a lonely character. He wants to show his affections but he shows it in harsh ways. Ugh, i just can't help but want to hug him. <3 He's the type of character that annoy you at first, but you can't hate him. Woo Bin always play a 'bad boy' and a bully character in his drama (at least on School 2013), but this time his acting is much more alive. He did a very good job portraying the character Choi Young Do♥



HATE:
The Story Line and Character Trait.

As i said before. i don't really like The Heirs' story line. character trait. For the story line, i think the idea about a poor girl fall in love with a chaebol ( Definition: a chaebol is a South Korean business conglomerate that is owned by a single family. Some chaebol consist of a single huge corporation with multiple branches, while others are a series of inter-connected businesses controlled by the family group. ) , bullied in school because she's poor, mean parents who against the idea of their son dating a poor girl, or something like that are already.. ugh.. nothing's interesting. 

But of course, with a good story plot, it's possible that the idea can still be a good idea. But once again, unfortunately, i don't think The Heirs has it. Some of the episode had such a slow pace. Nothing really happened.


I started to feel the drama after the 5 or 6th episode. I fall in love (?) with Kim Tan. lol. He can even get 'Boyfriend Of The Year' award from me. :P(◕‿◕✿) His handsome face is just so flawless. But towards the end of the drama, i started to get annoyed with his character. ;___; Sorry, Tan-ah. XD

And i actually not a fan of Park Shin Hye's character, Cha Eun Sang. Sighs. How to say it.... lol. It's like she can't stand up for herself.... lol... And what pissed me off (not that pissed actually :p) is that her decision is confusing and make a whole previous episode become meaningless. // Might contain spoiler // One day she decided to leave Tan, make Tan desperately looking for her and become a total mess, but the day after she shows up in front of Tan by herself, making the poor tan whose crying desperately for her before become meaningless. lol. I can't fully understand her. ;_;

And for my favorite character, i will pick ZE:A Park Hyungsik's character Jo Myung Soo. He's so clueless and just too cute. You need at least one friend like him in your life. lol ♥




Anyway, i still give a pretty high rating (4 out of 5) and recommend you to watch this drama. ^_^ Although there's still flaws here and there, The Heirs still has this incredible charms that you can't denied! ;) Now that the drama is already ended, I will surely miss Kim Tan, Choi Young Do, Chanyoung and Lee Bona, Joo Myungsoo, Kim Tan's mom, and everyone else. including Tan's dad. lol♥♥

And.... To be noted, when i wrote this review, i tried hard not to being too biased. So i just express my personal opinion about the story. :)) -- Lastly, Sorry for the long post ugh ;__: I just can't help it~ :P Let's meet again on another review of  latest korean drama!~♥

"When it’s hard to make up your mind, don’t look too far ahead. Just think about tomorrow. Think about what you want to do tomorrow…and that will give you a different answer." - Kim Won
