I’ll say it again. The kisses on Heirs fall flat, but I’m a sucker for all other forms of intimacy on this show, like the one we’ll be treated to on episode 14!
So, it appears that Eun Sang’s status as a charity student will be revealed to the whole class during Chan Young and Bo Na’s party. It all comes to light when she, dressed in her apron, makes a coffee delivery to the event, and what should follow? Well, probably a very awkward and humiliating moment for Eun Sang while Rachel dabbles in schadenfreude. Of course, Tan will be there for his lady and he might even make a violent scene.
However, what should be a nightmare of an evening turns out to be romantic when in front of everyone, Tan wraps his arms around Eun Sang to undo her apron. A bit symbolic! The burden of her secret is being shed off, but she’s not going through it alone. And later, when she’s all dolled up for the party, she’s given a corsage and the soft touch of his lips on her forehead—3 times!
I’m satisfied even if the show doesn’t have another kiss … as long as we get more hugs and loving forehead kisses. They’ve been better than the “shut up” pecks because Eun Sang isn’t recoiling in dumb terror, and instead, she’s reciprocating with genuine affection.
See, despite the writing being flawed, it’s a scene like this that makes Heirs so hard to quit!
