Spoilers, spoilers, spoilers, and more spoilers: my take on Chilbongie vs. Oppa.
Archive for November 2013
Sorry, this blog has become an “Heirs” blog.
Let’s cut right to it: Choi Young-do, I, what? Huh??? He was my biggest gripe at the start of the story: there were sparks of something interesting in his character but he was just too terrible and frightening to justify whatever interesting qualities he might have as a love rival to Tan. “Heirs” is a G-rated drama but if Choi Young-do were a movie character, I’m sure he would’ve killed some peoples and those people’s moms and/or puppies by the 30-minute mark, and that doesn’t make a good, realistic romantic interest to root for, no matter how sometimes charming the bad-boy facade.
But 12 episodes in and Choi Young-do might be the most interesting of our three leads and developing nicely in layers, too. I read some general conspiracy theory-ish spoilers that I’m hoping will prove false, because I don’t really care about the plights of anybody on this drama anymore (except Lee Bona! I wuff her), and I’d rather Choi Young-do continue developing, even if he ends up being the loser of this whole triangular spectacular.
Drama styling tips are actually my favorite posts but I haven’t done one in two years since “City Hunter.” Then I actually sat down to compile one and this is what my desktop looked like as I was sorting through images, and I remembered why I haven’t done one in two years. Whoops.
This is an extremely image-heavy post given the huge cast, so you’ve been warned!
What IS this?!
I’m flabbergasted, because the last two episodes of “Heirs” are showing that Kim Tan is just as terrible as Choi Young-do, except he’s more subtle about it, contrasting with Choi Young-do’s obvious shows of hostility. I’m starting to think Choi Young-do might be more harmless of the two in the long-term, since his actions are outward, whereas Kim Tan is nice and then he’s nice and then he’s nice and then BAM, he’s a huge asshole. He plays just as dirty as Young-do, and it’s just mean stuff.
I want him and Choi Young-do to just end each other Gladiator style. THUMBS DOWN.
