The HEIRS on its way this October!

October can't come soon enough for kdrama fans! Much buzz has been going around since the announcement of a new posh-school themed drama. Many fans claim to be sick of this same old drama plot but STILL can't help being excited. I can totally relate.

He Who Wishes To Wear the Crown, Endure Its Weight – The Heirs, or simply HEIRS, appears to have the feel of Boys Before Flowers and... well, not much else is known. While the several synopses I've read online are unoriginal and bland, the cast sure aren't.

Topping the list are Lee Min Ho and Park Shin Hye. If you've been a kdrama fan for quite some time, you wouldn't need to click on the names I hyperlinked because you'd know how adored these two are. I'm not sure which one has the larger fan base but I know both have huge following. I don't go crazy over Lee Min Ho but I love, LOVE, Park Shin Hye. Personally, I can't imagine the chemistry but I hope their loveteam works. As main leads, LMH plays the rich guy and PSH the poor girl. We know how that usually turns-out so I'm hoping some twists will make the drama standout.

HEIRS also has two of my favorite actresses from the seriously underrated (in my opinion) kdrama What's Up.
Kim Ji-Won will be playing a rich girl (I'm assuming she's going to be snobbish) while Im Joo-eun will be a teacher in the Empire High School. Also, Kang Min-Hyuk, my oh-so-cute drummer in Heartstrings, will be a friend of PSH. I can't wait to watch him smile and kid-pout on TV again. With him in the cast, the CN Blue fandom will surely get in the drama train.

Rounding up the cast are Choi WonYoung, Kim Woo-bin, Krystal Jung, Kang Ha-neul, Park Hyung-sik and Choi Jin-hyuk. Yeah, all those pretty faces get my hopes up that HEIRS will be another favorite kdrama of mine. It certainly helps that the writer is  Kim Eun-sook. She wrote three dramas that I found beautiful (one of them Secret Garden, an all-time fave) and even though I didn't like the others, they were all popular. I don't know how she does it but her stories always contain a certain kick that leaves lasting imprints on the viewers.  

That said, I try to calm myself whenever I read HEIRS updates in my newsfeed. Lee Min Ho learning how to surf (Why, hello there, abs) and Park Shin Hye finally starting the to film scenes... it'll be devastating if the plot will not be able to sustain the star power brought by its cast.

So, how about it? Anybody want to join me in another rich-guy-loves-poor--girl-school kdrama?
