I just realized that we have 2 weeks left until “The Heirs” ends..I’ll wait until everyone is done crying. No wonder all the action is coming in now, we have to get to that point when Won and Tan join forces to take down Chairman Kim. Dun dun dun!
Daddy Kim Truly Is Evil
This man wouldn’t care if his own children suffered as long as he feels like he’s “teaching” them a lesson. He made a fool out of Won and Tan at the shareholders meeting only to show them how powerful he is. Life is a game to him, and everyone around him are his game pieces and disposable

“Pride and Prejudice” Case #5 – The dead woman in the toilet
Just kidding, it isn’t that kind of story. Anyway, you know what I love about this drama? The fact that they don’t string us along with a mystery that one or both of our main characters already know. In this case, we find out that it’s because Goo Dong Chi failed to save Yeol Moo’s little brother that he switched his studies from medical to judicial—and became an ace prosecutor instead.2. Kang Soo pretending to be jealous of grandma Geum Ok’s attention towards Chan.5. Dong chi’s smug expression when Yeol Moo gets sick at the sight of the dead woman.
6. Jang Won and Gwang Mi’s handling of the crazy man who had to save the water from boiling because it hurt.
On MBC"s "Radio Star" this week, CNBLUE"s Jonghyun dished on his affections toward f(x)"s Krystal (or Soo Jung).
The MCs said to Minhyuk, who played her boyfriend in "Heirs," "You said that you automatically smile because our Soo Jung is so cute." Minhyuk replied, "She"s really cheerful, was really good to the oppas when we filmed in the school, and so on."

Kyuhyun then said, "Does Jonghyun like Krystal too? Your expression is a bit dark," so Jonghyun said, "I monitored the show and her character was really refreshing and pretty, so I became a fan. That is why the members and I have talked to her altogether on the phone once
RECAP: FIFTH RECORD Min-joon saves Song-yi from falling overboard, and as he puts her to bed, she pulls him down to her to give him a kiss. She murmurs, “You’ve gone crazy,” but it’s more to herself than to him, believing herself to be dreaming him up. She hushes him from speaking and sighs, “Yeah, I was too lonely all this time and it’s been hard on my body. I’m even dreaming up sexy dreams now. It’s time I married. Hormones are honest.”Drifting off to sleep, Song-yi curls into Min-joon’s coat for warmth—the one he’s wearing, which pulls him even closer to her. Looking completely out of his element (well, even more than he is, for being an alien and all), Min-joon carefully extricates himself. As soon as he exits, he overhears scary hyung Jae-kyung confirming with his secretary that “it” has been completed, without witnesses, and that if not for somebody being greedy, he wouldn’t have had to do this
A new battle for ratings has started with two new drama premieres from SBS and MBC, “Man from the Stars” and “Miss Korea,” respectively. They go against incumbent, KBS’s “Beautiful Man.”
SBS’s new Wed-Thurs drama “Man from the Stars” has a strong debut getting 15.6% of the viewership according to the Nielson Korean Ratings. This is 4% increase in ratings from the debut of the previous SBS drama “The Heirs” which occupied the same time slot.
MBC’s new drama “Miss Korea” debuted with 7% of viewership, up 1.7% from the final episode of “Medical Top Team” ratings last Thursday.
With all the husband hullaballoo, sometimes the secondary characters feel a bit too secondary, but then they’ll step to the fore with something really sweet. It’s easy to get caught up in the Oppa-Chilbongie wars (omg you guys are killing me with them), but this drama has a lot more to offer than fanwars and shipping, which is actually why I think it’s doing itself a disservice to be so coy with the “Who is he?” gimmick. Because when the show is all about the small, revealing character moments, it’s totally got my heart.
EPISODE 15: “The people who changed me, Part 2″
It’s January 1996, and Na-jung is caught in a fierce tug-of-war with Garbage in the front yard… because she’s trying to sneak him into her room at night and he’s resisting
Actor Lee Min Ho, who recently wrapped up filming of his hit SBS drama “The Heirs,” left a message and video on his official Facebook account, saying goodbye to the drama and his character, Kim Tan, and cheering on his fans.

Well the time has come, “The Heirs” has finished. If you want to cry, we’ll have a moment of silence for those going through early withdrawal symptoms. We didn’t get a terrible ending, not everyone got a happy ending, but it wasn’t too open that left me guessing. I don’t like being left guessing after an ending, it feels so unsatisfying. So what were some major moments and some of my favorite scenes from the final week? Let’s find out.
