The Heirs: Episode 13

After outing himself as an illegitimate child to honorary guests, Kim Tan runs over to Eun Sang’s workplace to see her (even though he literally told her to go away earlier that night).

They stand there looking at each other. And then…he starts crying.

Hypocrites don't get to cry.
Kim Tan, hypocrites don’t get to cry.

Which also makes her cry.

Not surprised, considering being sad is her specialty.

He asks her if that promise she made in ‘Murica (that she would take his hand and run with him) is still valid in Korea, to which she shakes her head. They proceed to hugging in the most awkward fashion.

No point in reading their dialogue anymore if their actions always state otherwise.

Post-dinner fiasco, Rachel and her mom discusses what to do now that Kim Tan is a fake. Her mom says to not break up the engagement yet. Instead, they’ll wait until Kim Tan and his brother fight over management of the company, which will force them to buy more shares, which will raise Jeguk’s stock prices, which is when Rachel’s mom will sell her shares of the company for a good profit.

Cheer up, Rachel. You'll be even more rich.
Rachel is so excited about this plan.

Because Eun Sang got kicked out of the house, Kim Tan lets her stay at one of their classmate’s studios.

Not at all trespassing.
Not at all trespassing.

They talk about who held the other’s hand first (oh my god) and why he cried, to which he says it’s because the penguins are dying from global warming.

Would be more convincing if he said it's because Vlad left M-Band.

The next morning, they see their classmate, whose studio  they took, outside. Apparently, he slept there that night.

Why didn't you just get a hotel?
I literally don’t know his name.

I think the point of dramatic-ness here is that he’s seeing them together.

At school, they decide to finally hold hands.

Kim Tan's creepiness has culminated to this moment.

Everybody’s staring, including Young Do.

You'd think this is the moment he decides to give up.

Young Do threatens to reveal his illegitimacy to the whole school, but Kim Tan says he’s not afraid of it anymore.

"Because I've subscribed to a new motto: love yourself."
“Because I love myself no matter what.”

Rachel comes into the TV studio (where Eun Sang works now) to see the fiance-stealer herself. She’s about to confront Eun Sang when Kim Tan conveniently walks in.

It's not an accident. We all know he's following her.
It’s not an accident. We all know he’s following her.

Kim Tan tells Rachel to stop picking on Eun Sang and that she has to go through him from now on. Rachel slaps him and calls him an illegitimate child. She then tells Eun Sang how much bloodlines matter in their world, but that new money like her wouldn’t understand.

Which is double the insult because she's not even new money to begin with.

Eun Sang runs out crying. Kim Tan tells Rachel to stop worrying about Eun Sang and his family.

Rachel is shocked because she has no concept of such thing.

We later see Ye Sol and Bo Na talking. Bo Na is the girl dating Chan-Young, Eun Sang’s best guy friend. Ye Sol is telling Bo Na to break up with him because he’s just the son of the secretary and that Eun Sang is going to take him away anyway. After all, she says, she’s already taking Kim Tan from Rachel.

Which is when Rachel walks by and hears her. You can feel the wrath that is about to come.

Shit happens to people who can't keep their mouths shut.
Shit happens to people who can’t keep their classist mouths shut.

Rachel asks Ye Sol for clarifications of what she’s saying. Ye Sol then proceeds to explain what she’s hearing: that Kim Tan’s breaking off the engagement because Rachel’s family is a joke and her mom is just using people for power.

This girl should probably take a lesson in watching what she's saying.
This girl should probably take a lesson in thinking before speaking.

Rachel then drops a bombshell and reveals that Ye Sol’s mom used to work at hostess bars. Gasp! This shocks everyone in the hallway, including Bo Na, who was like “And you looked down on my boyfriend for being a secretary’s son?”

55
Rachel, once again, shows you how it’s done.

We move to a scene of Kim Tan, who suddenly sees that everyone’s rushing to the cafeteria. He stops a random girl in the hallway to ask what’s going on. She tells him that, “Rachel and Bo Na are making Ye Sol sit at the Social Care Seat.”

Oh my god, he's touching her arm.
Oh my god, he’s touching her arm.

The Social Care Seat is where those rich kids make the poor kids sit to get tortured. I’m not going to even comment on the ridiculousness of this and how that seat is just a social construct made up by bored students.

And she's playing a part in giving it legitimacy.
And she’s playing a part in giving it legitimacy.

Because, next, we see Kim Tan being tired of the stupidity and takes a seat in that Social Care Seat.

See? He understands.
See? He understands.

He eats as everyone gasps in horror/amazement. Young Do walks by and sees Kim Tan in this seat, so he decides to spill lunch on him, saying that it’s what the seat is for.

Oh yeah, because every other seat in the room has the magical ability to stop Young Do from pulling crap like that.

And she's still crying. For what? Kim Tan's suffering?

Eun Sang comes in and grabs Kim Tan out of it, and everyone disperses.

Bo Na and Chan Young talks. He asks her why she joined Rachel in doing this, and she explains it’s because Ye Sol calls him a secretary son. He says that it’s true anyway, and she’s only upset because she’s embarrassed. He’s disappointed that she stooped down to that level.

Buddy, did you just realize now how insecure and jealous she's been?

Kim Tan comes home from school, only to be kicked out by his dad for dishonoring the family and not appreciating what they’ve given him.

Being rich sure is hard.
Being rich sure is hard.

He’s also forced to give back his jacket, wallet, and cell phone–all given to him by his dad. He goes to see Eun Sang and shares that he’s going to work hard and make a fortune himself. Eun Sang replies by saying that he might as well become a K-pop star instead.

Do you not realize how well-connected this guy is?
Do you not realize how well-connected this guy is?

Kim Tan calls up the only “friends” to tell them that he got kicked out for unknown reasons. Now, he has to figure out who will give him a ride to school, food to eat, and a place to stay.

You can see how excited they are about this.

The guy on the far left is senior Hyo Shin. He has a crush on his tutor, Hyeon Ju–the orphan who got outed by Jeguk. His mom wants him to go to college, but he doesn’t want to. He purposefully missed his college interview, which did not go over well with his mom. So she pulled some strings and set up another interview for him. When he found out, he was so disappointed.

Disappointed that his mom has so much connections and can pull this kind of thing for her son.
Disappointed that his mom has so much connections and can give her son so many opportunities.

Madam Han, Kim Tan’s mom, comes to Eun Sang’s workplace and yells at her…for leaving just because she said so.

"Did I stutter?"
“Did I stutter?”

She says some things about how hard it is to sleep at night knowing that Eun Sang has no place to go. Whatever. We realize that she only wants her back to convince Kim Tan to come back and beg his father to let him stay, which he refuses to do.

He decides to go to his brother’s (Kim Won) hotel and asks to stay the night.

These rich kids. When they get kicked out, they don't go homeless. They just stay at an even nicer place with someone else.

Kim Won has a discussion with the secretary about Kim Tan’s shares of the company, and we see that this is the first time Kim Tan is hearing about this.

It's amazing how vulnerable he looks in his brother's presence.

The next day, Kim Won drives Kim Tan to school. There, he sees his former lover, Hyeon Ju. His instinct is to get out of the car and talk to her, but he decides against it.

This love story is slightly more interesting than Kim Tan and Eun Sang's. Slightly.
This love story is slightly more interesting than Kim Tan and Eun Sang’s. Slightly.

We see Hyeon Ju teaching a class, in which she decides to discriminate them based on their grades. First, she asks them to identify the smartest student in class, and everyone points to Chan Young. We see Eun Sang smiling because, finally, someone doesn’t care about money.

And that was literally it.
And that was literally it. That’s it.

We see a meeting happening between Kim Tan’s dad, his fake Chairwoman mom, and the Secretary. Monsieur Kim instructs the Secretary to not let Rachel’s mom buy any of the company’s shares. And he tells them to prepare Eun Sang to study abroad, because the people at Jeguk High are too immature for her, I think.

What does he see in her?
What does he see in that girl?

Next, we see Hyo Shin unwillingly attending the college interview that his mom set up.

I just want to show him in a suit.

At Eun Sang’s workplace, she’s told that someone has reserved the cafe for 2 hours. We finds out that it was Young Do who reserved it, and he did it to be alone with her (since she refuses to answer his calls or talk to him).

I want to be on his side but he's just so pathetic.

Eun Sang sits down and tells him that she knows he likes her, but she has to reject him.

I can't even comment on how long it took them to get here.
I can’t even begin to comment on how long it took them to get here.

Trying to be tough, Young Do tells her that he will now picks on everyone except her.

Here, we see Young Do at school feeling sorry for himself:

And what do YOU see in that girl anyway?
And what do YOU see in that girl anyway?

He goes to the intercom and tries to reveal Kim Tan’s secret.

But being in a Korean drama, we know he's actually not going to.

Eun Sang comes in and stops him before he can reveal it. Seeing that they’re alone in the room, he locks the door to not let Kim Tan come in. He says he’s been waiting for this moment to be with her.

He manages to hit Kim Tan's level of creepiness in just two scenes.
He manages to hit Kim Tan’s level of creepiness in just two scenes.

And we end with Kim Tan trying to get into the room and Young Do not letting him.

Sighs.
