However one day, Cha Eun Sang learns that her sister is about to get married, and realizes she'll never return to Korea, so she'll forever have to wash dishes. She resolves to go to America as well, and get better life. However, what she finds in America is far worse than she could ever imagine.

User Reviews

Sweet, predictable and heart warming
5 November 2017 | by Rita_RoySee all my reviews

So if you are watching a KDrama and expect it to be mind bending, without cliche's and tropes, you shouldn't be watching this. If you do like your KDramas, you should be used to tropes and clichés and enjoy the sheer beauty of watching old fashioned, sweet melodrama with familiar characters. Heirs is no different. Beautifully shot, with fantastic actors, a detailed story and characters, it is a satisfying drama that made me really enjoy my time getting to know their story. And yes, would love to see Choi Young Du get his own story!
