aka - HEIRS, BRO.  (up to episode 8)

+ Oh lord, it's not that rare that I find myself in a fandom were i SHIP ALL TEH SHIPS!!1 except the canon ones (ew, gr-oss)

(this post is insane and i sound insane and my shipping is out of control.)



+ First of all, HELP ME I SHIP BONA WITH EVERYBODY. Krystal is just so damn charming and delightful that she manages to wrangle something a bit different out of the rest of the cast - first and foremost my main OTP of this show is Krystal/Young Do which I decided on in Episode 1 before they ever interacted and was delighted in Episode 2 when they had the exact relationship that I thought would make them work - a) He's more gentle with Bona than anyone else, because everybody in the cast (bar Rachel) are all exceedingly gentle towards her (which just fyi, has now also made me ship Tan/Bona wtf self more on that later) she's kinda like a puppy you know? The way everyone just calls her pretty all the time even though it rarely even gets her off track (OBVIOUSLY THEY JUST FEEL THE SAME AS ME AND JUST FEEL THE NEED TO COMPLIMENT HER ON HER PRINCESS-NESS). But seeing as I'm not even remotely shipping him with Eun-sang and although it would normally be PERFECT for me - Rachel/Young-do isn't really doing it for me either, the Gu Jun Pyo approach to women isn't appealing to me for this character.

I just don't know why the show feels the need to wade through the usual cliches of Passionate Girl/Cold Guy to make Young-do grow as a character and eventually learn to be less of an asshole, when I already see it in him when he's gently teasing Bona - which was far more appealing. UGH YOU GUYS I KNOW, I'VE THOUGHT ABOUT IT TOO MUCH. I can just imagine him in Chan-young's position with Bona heaping the same amounts of love and loyalty on him AND HE WOULD JUST INDULGE HER IN IT SO MUCH AND SECRETLY LOVE IT BECAUSE HE JUST WANTS TO BE LOOVVEEEDDD. FML THAT IT WILL NEVER HAPPEN BECAUSE IT WOULD BE SO. GODDAMN. CUTE.

#ahem

Anyway, this seems like an appropriate time to link YOU TO A BONA/YOUNG-DO FIC THAT ZOE FREAKING WROTE ME BECAUSE SHE IS MY SUN AND STARS AND GREATLY INDULGES ME IN RANDOM CRACK SHIPS I COME UP WITH read it here. (no srsly this was like the highlight of my week. *raises glass* TO MUCH HEIRS FIC IN THE FUTURE rarrr rarrr amen) I prompted this just after their brief arm-grab/eye!sex moment in Episode 7 THAT LITERALLY CONTAINED MORE CHEMISTRY IN A FEW SECONDS THAN THE REST OF THE SHOW HAS PROVIDED IN EIGHT EPISODES AND I WAS LIKE 'YEP YEP THIS IS IT, IT'S HAPPENING, I AM FULLY ON BOARD MY IMAGINARY SHIP.'

+ Erm after their scene in Episode 8 I also totally ship Tan/Bona (or at least in the sense that I would love to see some flashbacks of their past relationship) which is truly incredible because I never thought I'd be able to muster up enough interest to ship him with anyone. Krystal just working her wonders, man. Actually this episode made me think about just how much I'd like to see some flashbacks, I think it could do some truly wonderful things for the characters to see their past friendship group where they're dating and the bromance is strong with Young-do/Tan and (one I might like to see most-) Rachel and Tan are friends.

+ None of this is to say that Bona/Chan-young are not ADORBS. AND PRECIOUS. SUNSHINE. OF. LIFE. Because they totes are and I die a little inside after he smiles gently after her for being ridiculous. Just kinda sucks that the only character I ship with everyone is the only person ever to be in a happy teenage relationship ;__;

+ I've decided she needs a scene with Won because if anyone can spark some life into him, it's Bona's radiance. i could ship that

+ I also liked the Rachel/Bona scene because it was one of the few times that Rachel showed exactly what she is - a bratty teenage girl, not a souless automoton. And there was much beautiful hair-tossing and bitchy comments to be had.

BASICALLY I LIVE A LEE BONA APPRECIATION LIFE OK.

Other ships:

+ Won/Rachel, I'm totes into it, their one scene together was the only scene ever that Won wasn't a massive dick in and Rachel's first scene that she seemed mildly happy in.

+ Rachel/Hyo-shin. HE MADE HER SMILE YOU GUYS. IT WAS GLORIOUS. THE CLOUDS PARTED. AND I FIND HIM ATTRACTIVE. AND HER ATTRACTIVE. THEY SHOULD KISS.

+ Hyun-joo/Hyo-shin or Hyun-joo/Manager Yoon tbh, anything that does not involve Won because he is starting to become a major creeper and it's pissing me off. I actually like Hyun-joo but I'd like to see her in a larger context than her various romantic plots. (and Hyo-shin actually but that's just because of face appreciation.)

+ Rachel/Young-do are surprisingly not doing it for me? I sort of enjoy their Cruel Intentions-esque relationship, but lbr, this is a KDrama and it's never going to get sexy enough for me to ship it and as I basically live my fandom life by the words 'I Just Want Everyone To Be Happy' I can't ship them in a KDrama-soulmate way either because I completely believe that they are far too similar to ever be happy together and would spend their days trying to make the other more miserable .

+ Tan/Eun-sang are....fine? Ok? Have their moments? Their moments are their playful ones btw - when everything is very "where did you come from?!" "a fairy tale *flutters eyelashes*" but for some reason Tan is becoming more of an asshole and ....more like Young-do, basically, with every episode. I always think I could really get behind this couple when something unexpected happens - like he just straight up asks her to like him then seems to leave her to make a choice, or when Eun-sang buys him and Young-do a sassy cup of coffee because she is so 3000% done with their shit. But then the KDrama cliche Gods have to storm in with the physical abuse and the bullying-as-love and Eun-sang suddenly unable to jUST STAND UP FOR. HER. SELF. and my poor soul simply grows weary of it all.

OH WAIT, THERE IS A PLOT, APPARENTLY.

+ Eun-sang has the best Mother, and even though she's an awful woman, I kinda love Mum's relationship with Madam Han because lol you guys their weird relationship just gets better with every episode.

+ Drama has pretty good cinematography, you go drama.

+ Could not possibly care less about the adult affairs/relationships, it's almost impossible how little I care.

+ Young-do has one of the worst KDrama parents of all time and that's saying something. He seems to hate his son and the actor is very good because he has such an unassuming look about him? It's really startling when he suddenly becomes a vicious monster.

+ Won is so deeply unsympathetic to me, I keep waiting for something to happen for him but I'm almost feeling like the Drama thinks they have such a handsome man playing him that he doesn't need any character growth, women love assholes!!1! I find his behaviour towards Tan fairly confusing tbh because jesus, what's a much simpler and effective way to not let your brother take your company? MAKE HIM ADORE YOU. WHY WOULD YOU TRY TO MAKE HIM HATE YOU? WHAT COULD POSSIBLY BE MORE UNHELPFUL THEN THAT? Men. Lawd. He doesn't even have the buckets of charisma that Young-do has to make him seem charming or yano.....interesting. Could try harder.

+  Eun-sang is....ok. I really wasn't a fan of her at first because she just seemed like Park Shin Hye playing every Park Shin Hye character ever and frankly she cried a baffling amount and I was never entirely sure over what. But, sometimes, she shows me a spark of something new..... buying those sassy cups of coffee, walking away from an argument because she doesn't have a fuck to give, telling people straight why the shit they're trying to pull on her is stupid....then I like her. Then I could love her. But frankly it's not nearly consistent enough and I remain generally uninterested in her.

+ Rachel is also fairly flat to me, I can see why people would like her because she has the potential to be very interesting, but right now she is just the most basic trope of Poor Little Rich Girl with no actual characteristics to fill in the blanks. But I have seen her moments and wish they would get a bit more frequent (and her actress has the most lovely doll-like face, it makes me hate life.)

+ Joon-young the poor baby :( this was somewhere the show surprised me - I thought for sure he was going to try and blackmail/threaten Eun-sang with the knowledge of her Mother but.....he protected her instead? And then bowed out without ever saying a word to anyone about her? TOP GUY TBH. I never hated Young-do more then when he was being wretched to him.

Okay I'm becoming self-conscious about how long this is getting, especially because I didn't even particularly enjoy the show until around Episode 5/6. SO WE'LL CUT IT OFF HERE.


PS - I'm shipping Mary/Branson in Downton Abbey more than I have ever shipped anything on that show, as I mentioned earlier - lol my life.

PPS - My babies won Video of the Year at the YouTube awards, much ridiculous and gross racism ensued but lol @ SNSD skipping off into the sunset with their award and 500,000 more views on the video with people coming to be gross and racist all over it. THE WORLD DOES NOT SEE THAT IT CANNOT ESCAPE THE HALLYU WAVE TBH, IT IS COMING FOR YOU.

PPPS - Gonna go watch those SHINee videos now Eleonore and Alex, so pls save your inevitable harrassment.

PPPPS - I read The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo books and I finished and on one hand I was insanely happy because fuck that man was a genius and also devestated because THERE SHOULD HAVE BEEN SEVEN MORE BOOKS AND WE COULD HAVE HAD IT ALLLLLLLLLLLL AND THE OTP AND THE TWIN SISTER AND UGHHH THERE IS ABSOLUTELY NOTHING ANYONE CAN DO ABOUT IT, IT'S SO FRUSTRATING.

BO NA/YOUNG DO IS THE TRUE OTP OF THIS SHOW. BYE.

I prompted this just after their brief arm-grab/eye!sex moment in Episode 7 THAT LITERALLY CONTAINED MORE CHEMISTRY IN A FEW SECONDS THAN THE REST OF THE SHOW HAS PROVIDED IN EIGHT EPISODES AND I WAS LIKE 'YEP YEP THIS IS IT, IT'S HAPPENING, I AM FULLY ON BOARD MY IMAGINARY SHIP.'
I love everything this post chooses to be.

I'M ENJOYING BO NA/TAN TOO WTF?? I can enjoy Tan 90000x more sans LOVE IIIIIS THE MOOOOMEEEEEEENT smh.

Bo Na/Chan Young can stay. And u know how I feel about people happily in love.

Won is so boring, I've started tuning out during his scenes tbh.

as I basically live my fandom life by the words 'I Just Want Everyone To Be Happy'
LOL WHAT? SINCE WHEN?

Their moments are their playful ones btw - when everything is very "where did you come from?!" "a fairy tale *flutters eyelashes*"
O M G OUR BRAINS NEED TO STOP. I LITERALLY SAID THIS EXACT SAME THING USING THIS EXACT EXAMPLE TO ELEONORE NOT HALF AN HOUR BEFORE.

+1000000 to Tan so not being that different from Young Do. Except I don't think he's BECOMING like him, I think he's always been a huge douche (e.g. "did I used to bully you", etc. IT'S A JOKE but lbr no). And his behaviour towards Eun Sang is exactly as privileged and entitled as Young Do's, only the former's comes with a heavy ladle of LOVE IIIIIS THE MOOOOOMEEEEEENT.

Young Do's father is the literal worst. I don't want to sympathise with Young Do but D U D E.

JOON YOUNG :__________________________; Seriously ngl I love Young Do (idk) but his abuse of Joon Young was so upsetting and triggery and I'm impressed the show recognises that.

PPS. THE EAST ASIANS ARE IN YOUR COUNTRY STEALIN' UR AWARDS. WHITE PEOPLE SHOULD BE VVV AFRAID.
PPPS. L O L @ your life but the link I gave you wasn't really something TO WATCH??? Also, just finalising this epic playlist, prepare yourself accordingly.
PPPPS. You've reminded me I never finished the last one. Should get on that I suppose.\
PPPPPS. No comment @ you and Zoe.

BO NA/YOUNG DO IS THE TRUE OTP OF THIS SHOW. BYE.

I'M ENJOYING BO NA/TAN TOO WTF?? I can enjoy Tan 90000x more sans LOVE IIIIIS THE MOOOOMEEEEEEENT smh.

YOU KNOW THAT YOU ARE MY SPIRIT ANIMAL IN LIFE RIGHT? LIKE, IF I HAD A DAEMON, IT WOULD PROBABLY BE YOU.

LOL WHAT? SINCE WHEN?

omg dude have you not noticed that over like the last year, I tend to end every sentence with 'BUT I JUST WANT EVERYONE TO BE HAPPY YANO.' IT MAKES ME SUPER BORING BECAUSE I GET REALLY TIRED OF ALL TEH DRAMA ALL THE TIME AND JUST WANT EVERYONE TO BE HAVING FUNNY AND FAB TIMES. I think it stems from the fact that these days, I can only ship couples if I think they'll be happy together in the long run. Idek. Chuck/Blair did this to me, girl.

+1000000 to Tan so not being that different from Young Do. Except I don't think he's BECOMING like him, I think he's always been a huge douche (e.g. "did I used to bully you", etc. IT'S A JOKE but lbr no).

Yeah tbf I didn't really bring up is obvious past douche-ness, I think it's more 'reverting to his past self' (aka Gu Jun Pyo probs and has snuck back into high school 10 years later because Lee Min Ho IS TOO OLD FOR THIS SHIT.) In fact I'm tempted to believe at this point that alot of Young-do's douche-ness was learnt from Tan and has become a sort of pupil surpassing the master type business.

Young Do's father is the literal worst. I don't want to sympathise with Young Do but D U D E.

JOON YOUNG :__________________________; Seriously ngl I love Young Do (idk) but his abuse of Joon Young was so upsetting and triggery and I'm impressed the show recognises that.


HE ACTUALLY STARTED CHOKING HIM THOUGH? I MEAN. LORDY. But yah (sadly) +10000 on loving Young-do though, I CAN'T EVEN FULLY EXPLAIN IT? I MEAN HIS FACE AND ABSURD LEVELS OF CHARISMA DEFINITELY HAVE SOMETHING TO DO WITH IT, but I do think he's kind of a sad character at the end of the day. Plus, he's obviously going to redeem himself with teh love by the end.

PPPS. L O L @ your life but the link I gave you wasn't really something TO WATCH??? Also, just finalising this epic playlist, prepare yourself accordingly.

Yeah but I've taken to watching their 'Everybody' video numerous times because I have a great artistic apprecation for that guy in the black fur coat. (also the choreo is pretty cewl) (i don't even like dubstep lol)

I love how Chuck/Blair has ruined all of us, what a good joke.

aka Gu Jun Pyo probs and has snuck back into high school 10 years later because Lee Min Ho IS TOO OLD FOR THIS SHIT.
LITERAL UGLY CACKLING.

+100 to Young-do surpassing master Tan, there must be a reason Tan is perceived as top dog blah blah~~~

Also, yeah, it's the Woo-bin effect, there can be no resistance. ;| ;| ;|

Yeah but I've taken to watching their 'Everybody' video numerous times because I have a great artistic apprecation for that guy in the black fur coat.

S C R E A M I N G

Bro, this is true proof if ever that we are daemon sisters because fur coat guy is no joke my FAVE DEMON CHILD. fyi his name is Lee Taemin and he is Shinee's lead-dancer/-vocal/dark brat prince rising and also Satan's wayward son, WELCOME.



(and yes the choreo is insane, as usual for them)
(i have a secret obsession with dubstep ngl although it is prob the least best song on that mini overall)

OH GOOD YES GIF THANK YOU.

no but srsly i'm glad you love him and he should be super proud of his DNA
