Heirs: The Moody Gazing of Lee Min Ho

I’ve long ago abandoned any pretense about this blog being remotely classy. So be warned: an unabashed squee fest of Lee Min Ho and his soulful staring on Heirs follows.

I used to pride myself as being immune to the charms of heartthrobs such as Lee Min Ho. I was so above all the fangirling. I eye-rolled at the sight of a billboard to promote his concert in Kuala Lumpur earlier this year and shrugged when my other half asked what the big deal was. I’d never watched a drama of his in its entirety–I dropped Boys Over Flowers and City Hunter rather quickly–so I was ambivalent about his acting ability. Plus, his mainstream look was just not to my taste. You know, I’m a sophisticated woman. I don’t do teenybopper fantasies *sips champagne*.

Now I see the error of my ways. While Lee Min Ho isn’t about to topple Gong Yoo’s place at the top of my K-crush list, in Heirs he has the uncanny ability to turn my insides into goo whenever he does the look. You know, what I’m talking about right? It’s this:  HeirsEp2_05

After watching 6 episodes of Heirs, it occurred to me that writer Kim Eun Sook must have decided to construct the entire drama around the exchange of moody and meaningful glances and sought out the best young leading man who could melt hearts or drop panties with a single fixed stare. Enter, Lee Min Ho.

If the drama is going to hinge on one man’s arsenal of swoon, then he’d better be able to bring it. And Kim Tan, as Lee Min Ho plays him, is a sensitive soul who telegraphs his deep longing through his eyes. Like this: HeirsEp6_02This is the gaze of loving admiration, and you sense that he’s thinking how lovely she must look in the mornings when she wakes up and that he’d like to be there one day to see her when she does.

But not like, post-coitally. This is teenage love K-drama style after all.

Here’s a sexier version: HeirsEp3_18 Well, he is driving a blood red Maserati with the top down so it’s only right that he dials down the sweet in favour of the cool. The look needs to fit the style of the ride, isn’t it? He’s got a few tricks up his sleeve too, and wondering which one will work best on her.

Then there’s the wistful version. The gaze that registers the longing of someone who fears never being able to attain his object of desire, but dreams of it anyway because he’s an incurable romantic.  HeirsEp5_02HeirsEp5_01

Then there’s one of my favourites, the gaze of bemused fixation. He’s tickled pink, wondering who is this girl? Why does she constantly surprise me? Why can’t I stop looking at her?  Why does she have such perfect skin? HeirsEp3_08

However, Lee Min Ho’s piece de resistance is the Gaze of Sorrow, unleashed in Episode 5 at the Big Reveal. This is the gaze that’s brimming with tenderness and empathy. It hurts him to see her in pain, but it kills him that he can’t make this untenable situation any better for her. Of all the households in the world, she had to end up in his.

HeirsEp5_06

He says less than 10 words to her but it’s his eyes that do the real talking. As a performance, it’s beautifully restrained. It’s the gentle anguish of an open, defenseless heart on display here that I suspect sent hearts aflutter across the globe. Including mine.

His restraint makes the swelling bombast of the accompanying soundtrack all the more effective. I love this song because it’s so sweetly overwrought. It’s spot-on for this scene, and for the drama’s numerous moments of adolescent pining. It’s basically a classic 80s ballad, complete with that key-change punch-up near the end that’s so so awesome. This song is made for montage perfection, and it compels me to faux-sing along with abandon, clutching my chest with one hand, the other hand outstretched, mouthing ‘Love iiis the momeeent.

None of this would strike a chord if these moments weren’t genuinely moving. And for that, I thank the bottomless well of vulnerability that Lee Min Ho seems to be able to tap into at will. Now I see what the fuss is about.

  1. HAHA. And why can’t there by such a thing as classy fangirling, pray tell? ;D Giggle. Yes, LMH does a whole lotta gazing in Heirs, and you captured the various gazes perfectly!! I thought he was great in City Hunter, so I’m not surprised that he’s able to give nuances to those gazes. Of course, I’m pre-wired to favor Woobie, despite the unsavory characterization of Young Do thus far. A fangirl’s got her priorities, y’know ^.~

    Like

    • Well, you are quite the classy fangirl I must say 😉

      You know, I was thinking of doing a post on Woobie alone when we start to see more of him. Because he’s killing it as Young Do. Every time LMH & Woobie share the frame you can see the stark difference in energies. I wonder if it’s a deliberate choice by LMH to play apathy like sleep-walking. Because the little I saw of CH, he wasn’t like this. It’s also the script too, which hasn’t really given LMH anything to do accept dream about Eun Sang.

      Like

      • Pshaw.. You sweet thang.. though I do love the feeling of being called a classy fangirl 😉 *preens and relishes the moment*

        Woobie’s definitely killing it as Young Do – perhaps a little too well, ha. Coz I’ve seen hate comments on Young Do and some people are confusing my lovely adorable Woobie with mildly psychotic Young Do. I concede they are both magnetic & hawt, so I can understand the confusion, heh.

        I do blame the script for LMH & the sleep-walking. He’s doing well with the gazes & all, but man, I am SO ready for STUFF to start happening. I feel like we’ve been in set-up for 6 whole episodes, and that’s way longer than necessary for such a short drama. Heck, long family dramas in excess of 50 eps are done with set-up by E8. Hurry, Heirs. Before WE start sleep-walking! ie, fall asleep and walk away from you. Oh alright. I won’t, for Woobie, but you know what I mean ^.~

      • I wonder how they both would perform if the roles where switched? KWB as the sweet love sick puppy and LMH as the bully. Would that change anything?

        I haven’t been bothered by the pace at all, I’ve drank too much LMH kool-aid (as betsy said) see. Ep 6 was the first time I started to get antsy, with the repeat set-ups and all. But I can’t walk away at this point though. There’s the promise of good stuff to come–could be the Kool-Aid talking.

      • Intriguing question! I am completely biased, of course, and I think Woobie would be able to kill it as a forlorn rejected lovesick puppy struggling to reconcile his very existence with the distant father, brother, and love interest who are all holding him at arm’s length. He’d bring nuanced gazes to the table too. LMH as Young Do.. He’d be fierce.. though I think he’d come off less psychotic and perhaps less arresting as a result? Haha, don’t mind me.. I’m clearly biased in Woobie’s favor. Go back to basking in your Kool-Aid 😉

You might not want to watch it out of context because now that I rewatched it I realized that “technically” it is not a great kiss. We got her with eyes open at the beginning (hate that!) but eventually she closes them and we at least see some lips touching 😜 So yeah! my standards are pretty low when it comes to kdrama kissing. But in context, once you “love” or at least care for the couple it kinda works 😉

But that’s really really rare. As you well know. Sometimes the good ones really sneak up on you out of nowhere. Like A Wife’s Credentials (if you haven’t seen that, I highly recommend it), I was totally blown away coz first, it’s an ahjumma/ahjusshi kiss (like older people in dramaland kiss? REALLY?!) and second, it was so sudden that I was as surprised as the characters were when it happened. So it felt immersive in that sense, and third, it was passionate! It’s one of my fave kiss scenes because of these reasons.

    For some reason I have this idea that Kim Eun-sook wrote Heirs specifically for Lee Min-ho… Which I probably got from Dramabeans because that’s where I get all my drama news. And if it’s true — your theory is more accurate than you knew! 😀

  3. I could definitely use a swoony post about Lee Min Ho! Anytime. I think it would be a good use of time between waiting for Heirs episodes to catch up with City Hunter.

    • Oh I can’t tell you how glad I am that he has good hair in Heirs (somewhere in there is a pun made in heaven, but it escapes me at the moment). Many a pretty man has been ruined by bad hair by drama stylists! His outfits however… Notice how his wardrobe has been Seoul-ified? I’m guessing he wouldn’t have been caught dead in bright green pants and parrot jumpers in LA.

      • Gosh, I wouldn’t know what Seoul fashion is like, not for real anyway. (On a side note, would love to visit Seoul and do a proper Korean fangirl lol) There was this silver, shimmery jumper that he was wearing when Eun Sang saw him outside his house – ugh, and that horrible jacket he was wearing when he arrived at the airport. That’s in addition to what you just said.

        I actually watched City Hunter because I knew from the promo stills that he’d have good hair, and for the same reason, I didn’t watch Faith. Haha. So yeah, good short hair is a plus for me, I don’t know why some people miss his so-called mane-of-glory.

But yes the hair in CH was good, but not good enough to get me thru the first two episodes. But now I’ve been told it gets better, I’ll put it back on my watch-list 😉

  4. OMG……I LOVE this post….

    it made my day as I stumbled upon a blog where there was this post that suggested names of many actors who could have done so much better in place of LMH and he is the reason why Kim Tan is not appealing!! And I was like grrrrrrrrr….LOL 😀 (never going to visit that place again….haha)

    Anyway,in my initial days, I had heard about LMH being the most popular star and when I started BBF, his role was that of the bully (like young do) which I was happy to dislike, and by the time the show ended, I didn’t realise when I became his fan….he single handedly made that show so much fun 🙂
    After that I tried Personal Taste and wow, he looked so much handsome in it and quite low key….but I couldn’t get past 3 or 4 episodes as the show wasn’t interesting enough to me….

    I started City Hunter but put it on hold after 2 episodes and picked it up recently after one whole year (!!) and that was one of the best decisions….he is awesome in it….and the drama is great as well…

    Faith was a sageuk and no way I was going to watch it…

    And Heirs finally gave me what I wanted for LMH: a normal character who is completely romantic and head over heels in love….you perfectly summarised everything I feel for Kim Tan and LMH 🙂

    I read an interview where LMH mentioned that he took this role even when knowing that he is too old for a high schooler bcoz he wanted to do one boyish role before going into his 30s….isn’t that adorable….and now I never feel bothered about why he is playing a teenager!! also, he has successfully brought the innocence and vulnerability of a teenager through his expressions…

    P.S. I have never written such a long comment before 😛

      I’ve never been bothered about the age thing, I think mostly because I’ve never seen him in anything else. It’s not something I had to struggle with. I was quite happy to just go with it. I guess I should give City Hunter another go, right? I must say though, although I’m happy to watch LMH’s starring sweetly forever, I hope the drama does give him an opportunity to do more than just be wrapped with with Eun Sang. Although I must say, it’s quite refreshing for the male lead to be totally besotted with the gal for once.

I know, I’m nuts at 44 to be doing this, but what can I say? I never obsessed as a teenager or anyone, so I guess I was due at least one in my lifetime and he was it 😛

    • Heeee! What is it about LMH that brings out the rabid fangirl from out of the woodworks? Before you there was Snow_white who I swear wrote the longest comment in her blogging life on this post. She usually writes one-liners, here she wrote an essay! I’ve only seen snippets of Faith and I must agree that he did have great mane of glory in that one, one of the best manes I’ve seen so far. Wow you sent him a gift? See now that’s the mark of a true fan. I’m just a poseur compared to the likes of you! It’s true, everyone’s allowed to obsess at least once, or twice, or whatever. At any age. I’ll probably still be lusting after Gong Yoo when I’m sixty!
