The first scene between the two was filmed August 22 in the city of Paju, and the stills show the two lead characters looking very close and already on the road to producing some major sparks in their relationship.
Lee Min Ho plays Kim Tan, heir to a conglomerate, who is given everything in this world, even some scars in his heart. Park Shin Hye plays Cha Eun Sang, heir to poverty, who bears that weight with great fortitude.
Lee Min Ho commented, “I am happy to be working with a writer, director, actors, and staff that I resepct. Just like the title ‘The One Trying to Wear the Crown, Bear Its Weight,’ I will engage in the filming with a sense of responsibility and constant exertions to deliver a good drama to viewers.”
Park Shin Hye commented, “I am giving it my all to become Cha Eun Sang by reading the script multiple times and completing her character with detailed style and props. I will work my hardest to get closer to the audience via Eun Sang, and work closely with the director to portray my character with more detail. Please give a lot of love to ‘The Heirs.'”
“The Heirs” airs Wednesday-Thursday on SBS starting October 9. Readers, do you think Lee Min Ho and Park Shin Hye will have good chemistry in the drama?
