The famous Lee Min Ho, and fan favorite, is no stranger to dramas about extremely wealthy teenagers (Boys Over Flowers, anyone?)
If you don’t know what “Heirs” is, it’s the very anticipated drama of 2013 that’s coming out in October. It’s actual name is “Those Who Want the Crown, Withstand the Weight of it – The Heirs” (wtcrap, that’s such a long name). In Korean, it’s 상속자들.
What’s the drama about? A bunch of rich chaebol heirs and their journeys through life and love. For example, Lee Min Ho will be in Heirs.
Currently, the cast is unclear since the drama isn’t coming out until late this year, but these people are for sure:
Lee Min Ho – Kim Tan (a delinquent Heir) who is a high schooler.
Park Shin Hye – ???
Choi Ji Hyuk – Lee Min Ho’s older half-brother, Kim Won, who’s 31, perfect, and basically the complete opposite of the beloved Lee Min Ho.
Kim Sung Ryung – a mother role, but her character is not known as of yet.
Heirs, the brain child of famous writer and PD Kim Eun Sook, is siblings with her previous hit dramas, Secret Garden, and Lovers in Paris. It’ll be 20 episodes long – which means 20 episodes full of Lee Min Ho!
Lee Min Ho was equally excited to work with Kim Eun Sook, as he said, “As I normally watch writer Kim’s productions, I wanted to definitely work with her and my wish was fulfilled through this opportunity. Working with the writer and director whom I respect, I think it will become a meaningful production.”
I’m glad to see that the superstar is enthusiastic about this new role! I wish Kim Eun Sook, Lee Min Ho, Park Shin Hye, and the rest of the cast all the luck they can get because this drama is being intensely watched by fans all over the world. If they can pull this off, then it only means more success to them.
The drama comes out in October, but you can get notifications for new dramas here!
