At least someone in speaks sense here! Go Myung So go!
Oh yeah, it’s time for the Heirs *Snoooooozzzzzeeeeeeee* Episode 9 Recap. Need I say more?
Apologies for the laaaatttteeeee recap but real life gets in the way of it sometimes! I had a work related session that ran late last night and I wasn’t able to get the download until midnight. So I was only able to get to it today. Tomorrow’s recap by Sarah will also be a bit late – she’s having internet issues. Hopefully, this will be a one time occurence!
We finally get to move past the growling at each other and find the reason for the antagonism between Young Do and Tan. In this episode though, we get to see little glimpses of the person that Young Do is beneath his bullying persona and while it doesn’t make you sympathize with him, you take the first step towards understanding.

Chapter Nine – Second Act
Soo-min winced and shifted slightly against the car seat. The tenderness of her skin from her recent tattooing experience was a constant throb. The tattoo was situated high up on her inner thigh, and unless someone was peeking up her skirt, it wouldn’t be visible to others. The tattoo was still fresh enough that her skin felt rubbed raw. She hadn’t even bothered to closely examine it, just slapped a bandage over it, but not before catching a glimpse of the crimson petals spiraling along her skin. Objectively speaking, it was an exquisite work of art, but what it represented made her itch to claw it off.
Scandal ends this week after what I’d call a wonderful run for the show. Yes, it had its faults but right now, I can’t really think of any. No wait, I wanted even more OTP time, hehe! I’m totally invested into the story and even when it goes slow or hangs over a point, it’s not annoying or sleep-inducing; rather, it allows you the time and chance to think about the characters more and look at their inner depth. And right now, more than anything, I’m hoping for a happy ending for Eun Joong.
Talk about being ‘out of place’. I doubt Eun Sang can feel that any more than she does at this moment. I just hope her life hereon isn’t so rough. It’s bad enough that she’s totally in a world that’s the exact opposite of hers, but to be the ball in the court for everyone to fight over, damn that is not fun.
I luuuurrrrvvvvveeee the jealousy in which Tan stews over Chan Young, hehe! Chan Young is definitely my favorite character overall – I love what a wonderful friend he is. And all the time I watched this episode, I was like, “Where’s my real life Chan Young? *pout*”
This was an interesting episode, like the previous ones. We get to see more OTP time and emotions come even closer to the surface for them both. Granted, I don’t think Eun Sang is totally as attracted to Tan as he is to her, I think she connects with him on a deeper level than before in this episode because she gets to see the vulnerable side of him too and now, she’s not as unaffected by him as before. I WANT SPARKS NEXT!

Chapter Eight – Induction
One Week Later…
Soo-min walked silently along the length of the ornate corridors in a section of the Vanity that was off-limits to her. Tonight was finally her night off, so she’d taken advantage of the free time to enter the club through the staff entrance before changing into attire more appropriate for a wealthy party-goer. Thank goodness the floors are carpeted, she thought, glancing at heavy wooden doors. It seemed that there was more money poured into this section than any previous one she’d been to. Maybe this was a sign that she was finally making some headway.
So, the Heirs finally makes its debut this week and I have to say, I only saw two of it’s teasers (the one behind the episodes) since youtube doesn’t work on my end and didn’t really know what to expect. Thankfully, I am enjoying it because despite it’s somewhat light way of story telling, its bringing up some really nice emotional beats – family relations, friendships and what life signifies for any person.
Yes, I’ll be recapping the series and joining me would be Sarah for the recaps! We’ll be doing alternate recaps – one episode me, one her, and I’m sure you’ll love her recaps too since her writing and sense of humor is practically one in a million and you can’t NOT smile or laugh with her! Look forward to her recap for Episode 2! 😉
