"Boys Over Flowers" was originally a film adapted from the original Japanese story, but then the cast was too shoulder-length, the scene was spectacular and the love stories were "Prince-Cinderella" stretching from the time The character was a high school student until they matured and planted it to the audience at that time, dreaming, bringing "Boys Over Flower" to become an Asian phenomenon. The reputation of the cast also came up at that time.

She was actively pursued by both rich daughters Kim Tan (Lee Min Ho) and Choi Young Do (Kim Woo Bin) and after all the challenges, there was a perfect ending with Kim Tan.

The story of The Heirs is not entirely new, not to mention Lee Min Ho also incarnated into the image very similar to Goo Jun Pyo's "Boys Over Flowers". Along with the character image, the script also has many similarities, The Heirs will theoretically be a "spray" in Lee Min Ho's career in particular. However, the drama made a big sound, extending the achievement for Lee Min Ho, Park Shin Hye and becoming the perfect launch pad for Kim Woo Bin, Krystal or Kim Ji Won.
