Do you see the pattern? Korea is not the only country with unhappy Inheritors. We have an heiress right here!
Return of the Heiress (千金归来) is the upcoming Cdrama with a recycled plot. The drama is based on a novel, so hopefully the writer has a solid writing to shoot its lovable OTP into stardom. They are uber cute in the stills below. And then I saw the trailer and a long train of nononono came out! The plot in a nutshell: Mother’s mysterious death is not an accident. Stepfather and mistress + step sister (I know! It runs in the gene!) work together to swallow the company, kicking the poor heiress out. Betrayed by those she once loved, our girl promises to get them back. One thing to note about the trailer: Slapping is a common method of greeting. Who wants to count the number of painful greetings? By the end of the drama, all has given and received kabang to their faces. Though most of the slaps look silly and terribly fake. Do we need a Slapping 101 here? But it’s comforting to know that our heroine also dishes out the five fingers. *thumbs-up*
The leading lady played by Li Qin. She’s here with her stepfather (Winston Chao) + step sister (Shin Min Hee). This girl looks like Zhang Zi Yi’s daughter! NO?
Li Yi Feng plays the childhood sweetheart, always by her side, through thick and thin, and some heartbreak. On the right is Lee Wei, to play a business man without clear intentions in his assistance to her return.
Stills of our cute OTP:
Put them in animal costumes and you have me giggling. This looks like the aftermath of being kicked out of her mansion. He’s also rich, I believe, so it’s cute that he’s doing all the Candy jobs with her. heh.
When you gotta go, you gotta go!
They’re even baking together! GAHHH!
Oy, the classic I-sprained-my-ankle scene. Too many cliches now writer!
And then of course it rains…. Cue piggyback! I swear we have some romantic gods always watching. XD
Back to their rich selves. I like that he isn’t the conventional handsome guy. This actor has a genuine, earnest aura about him in the stills.
OH GOSH! Don’t go breaking the puppy’s heart now, heiress!
Return of the Heiress premieres on October 30th.
