Lee Min Ho marks his return on Philippine television via the much-awaited Korean drama “The Heirs” premiering this Monday (May 26) on ABS-CBN.
Dubbed as “The Best in Asia,” “The Heirs” stars Philippines’ King of Asinovelas Min Ho, who was loved by Filipinos in “Boys Over Flowers” and “City Hunter,” together with one of Korea’s hottest leading ladies, Park Shin-Hye, who also endeared viewers for her portrayals in “He’s Beautiful” and “Heartstrings.”
It became the talk-of-the-town especially among netizens when they learned about the airing and hashtags such as #KingMinHo and other related topics trended nationwide on micro-blogging site Twitter.
Watch the story of Ryan (Min Ho), a high school student and heir to a large Korean conglomerate, who is sent to study in the U.S. He may already have it all, but deep inside, he yearns for a complete family as he was born as an illegitimate child to his father.
Ryan then bumps into Julia (Shin Hye), who has arrived from Korea in search of her older sister. Due to unfortunate turnout of events, Julia finds herself penniless in a foreign country with no one to run to. This is where Ryan comes for her rescue.
Julia temporarily lives with Ryan in his mansion that will pave way for the two to get to know each other and fall in love. Their whirlwind romance gets cut short when Ryan’s fiancée Rachel arrives and kicks Julia out of the house.
Time passes by and the two see each other again in Korea. In his return, Ryan’s heart is torn between love and duty. Will Ryan’s family accept Ryan’s decision to call off the wedding to be with their househelp’s daughter? Which crown will he choose to wear— love or power?
