I’m so itchy about how the writer chose to build Yoon-Ha and Joong-Gi’s relationship after she revealed she was a chaebol’s daughter. It really bothers me that we already know that he’s gold digging her. I don’t feel anything for their relationship because it was just given to us without any work.
It’s like the scenes are all out of order.
But as I watched Ji-Yi and Chang-Soo try to figure out their situation I was hit hard in the chest with the absolute wasted potential that was Eun-Sang and Tan in Heirs. Ji-Yi and Chang-Soo are such awkward ducklings but they are communicating and listening to each other. Ji-Yi wants to touch Chang-Soo and enjoy being with him even if her mind is calculating all the different ways this could go wrong because of money. And for the most part, I think Chang-Soo takes her seriously.
This is literally what I wanted for Heirs. Not a triangle. Not a complete disrespect for Eun-Sang and her dreams. But two people of wildly different backgrounds falling in love and deciding that love was worth fighting for.
Ji-Yi has a huge battle if she makes that decision, however, at this point, I think Chang-Soo would be reasonable if horrible stuff started happening to her because of him. Ji-Yi wouldn’t feel so smothered she would run away.
The are the second leads so maybe this will change. I have no idea. But I love them. This might be a rich man/poor woman I can handle.
