The Heirs also known as The Inheritors is one of the timeless Korean dramas that make us realize how powerful love is and that it has no status to begin with.
You may differ in some aspect, living both in different worlds, and seems like it is against all odds, but what matters the most is your feelings for each other. Whether you are willing to beat the odds and climb to the top of the pyramid or rather descend.
Moreover, it’s been years since this 2013 romantic Korean drama starring Lee Min Ho, Park Shin Hye, and Kim Woo Bin welled up our young hearts and influence us in many forms.
It tells the story of a diligent high school girl who does different part-time jobs to help her mute mother and supports her older sister’s studies in America.
She unexpectedly steps in the world that is way different from her’s. The world of the rich people who do not worry anything up until the future. But would she still manage to cross that thin line separating the two worlds? Or would the people on the other side dare to cross it and treat the world fairly?
The Heirs also teaches us lessons and makes us open to the facticity yet stony reality. Here are 6 heartwarming messages in the said drama:
1. Love has no status.
Loving someone doesn’t require any qualifications. We all have the right to love and to be loved whoever we are — poor or rich, fat or thin, sick or not.
2. Do not be coward, be brave.
In order to win any battles, you need to be brave and face even the most dangerous and fearful thing in the world. Your braveness can win any battle, it’s either be in war or love.
3. Fight for what is right.
Fight your own living will as a person. It doesn’t mean they have the money and all means, they have the right to intimidate and command you. However, if you haven’t done anything bad, face them and use your liberty. Just like how brave Eun Sang to fight her love for Kim Tan.
4. Family comes first.
We can’t deny the fact that not all families understand each other. Some are fighting over a lot of things that lead to cutting ties their bloodline. But if you are going to understand each other more, everything will be well. The family still comes first in every situation. After all, you have your family first before anything else in this world.
5. Disabled people are still people.
If we are all fed up living in a hard life, remember those individuals with disabilities. And even them, they deserve to get what the world can offers — having jobs, attends school, and reaching their dreams in life.
They may not be fit for a certain job, but still don’t forget to show respect and humane character. We all deserve to be respected.
6. Richness doesn’t guarantee an easy life.
Let us stop the stigma of rich people having no worries in life because no one in this world doesn’t experience suffering. Even if you are sleeping with money, you will still be facing challenges and bumpy roads on your way. In simpler words, we all have stories to tell.
Life is like wearing a crown and you need to endure its weight of responsibilities.
