Hello everyone! This What I’m Watching Wednesday will cover Heirs episodes 15 and 16. In addition to Heirs I watched Pretty Man Episode 3 and the new movie Friend 2: The Great Legacy, starring Kim Woo Bin. Check out my review on Soompi!
Thanksgiving and work let me with very little time for drama watching. This coming week should be better!
WATCHED: Heirs Episodes 15 & 16
Heirs continues to captivate me, although I’m very worried about the unpleasant things to come. I know conflict and heartache is essential to any good drama, but that doesn’t mean I can’t dread it!
What Was in Store this Week?
More Kim Tan and Eun Sang (Bitersweet) Romance
These two episodes focus largely on the obstacles this young love faces. While I liked their cute moments, I could feel the give and take that the writers set up. They may offer us some fluff but they then will immediately turn around to steal all of our happiness back with depressing scenes. Things are too insecure for me to really enjoy Kim Tan’s cheesiness and romantic gestures.
Bromance: The Kim Tan/ Young Do Edition
These two had some great scenes. Seems like things are starting to get better between the two of them!
The group project, while brief, was hilarious.
My favorite moment has to be when Young Do shows up with his own army of body guards at Kim Tan’s house.
Sure gives a whole new meaning to fight fire with fire.
I love the unlikely partnership! Young Do, keep it up!
Side note: Anyone else think Lee Minho looks a bit awkward in jeans? Maybe it was the extreme skinniness, but I felt like something just wasn’t “right” with those casual outfits. It also could have been the fuzzy turtleneck… Kim Tan sure has some strange fashion choices.
Young Do’s Storyline Continues to be Heartbreaking
Despite the cute moments between Young Do and Kim Tan, Young Do is really having a tough time.
Eun Sang even admits that she know’s he’s actually a good person deep down, but it’s much too late for him.
Young Do, your silly bullying got in the way of wooing your girl!
Buck up, kiddo. It’s going to get better.
I felt so bad for him after watching these episodes that I even wrote him a letter to cheer him up.
Hyo Shin Stay Strong- Your Family is Crazy
Not taking the college entrance exam was a big move made by Hyo Shin to stand up to his over-controlling mother. It’s so painful to see him in such a difficult situation. His parents know their son is unhappy, but they aren’t really going to do anything about it.
At least it looks like he may have a new love line coming his way? I didn’t see that coming at all. I know it started as revenge, but there’s been too much post-kiss awkward tension for feelings not to develop. Hmmm, not sure how I feel about this.
Kim Tan’s Dad is Evil
He’s destroying his family with each move he makes. I can’t believe he thinks making his sons battle it out for power is the right thing to do. All his money has made his brain funky. I’m just biding my time for his massive downfall. You know it will have to come!
Poor Kim Won- He’s Got it Tough.
His evil father’s games are leaving Kim Won in a mess of a situation. This guys needs a friend.
Too bad he’s mostly burned his bridge with his brother. He needs to stop being so paranoid!
This guy better end up with the girl. He never seems to catch a break!
Tan and Won really, really need to team up already. How else will they beat their dad?
Emotional Moments Galore
It seems like every main character had to bring out the waterworks during these two episodes. Kim Tan, Kim Wan, Eun Sang and Hyo Shin all had their moment(s) to cry.
Kim Tan, I hope you’re coming up with a good way to get out of this mess. Your Dad means business (both literally and figuratively). He’s not going to just let you go skipping off with Eun Sang. Good luck. You’re going to need it…
What were your favorite parts? Any particular scene make you cry more than others? The ending with Eun Sang leaving and Kim Tan crying in the empty apartment hit me the most. I’m anxious to see what’s next for our troubled teenagers.
Thanks for reading!

Definitely the bromance, or more specifically Young Do. The whole springing his buddy out of house arrest was hysterical. Plus, he gets the best lines!
I know, right? Young Do is hands down my favorite character in this show. His lines are sometimes so heartbreaking that I want to cry. Thanks for reading!
