4 ways Heirs is basically just like Gossip Girl
The much anticipated drama, The Heirs, finally premiered and it did not disappoint. However, I couldn't help but notice some similarities between the characters and those of Gossip Girl. Of course, I am not saying they are the same, but these 4 characters take me back to those perfect beginning days of Gossip Girl.
1. Choi Young Do and Chuck Bass (the inspiration for this article)
From their dashing good looks, to their snarky attitudes it is clear that both of these characters possess a very similar charisma. From what we've seen so far, their actions are similar as well! For example, they are both flirty and they both go looking for trouble. They are twisted and have definitely mastered their gorgeous brooding looks. Both characters also have complicated relationships with their rich fathers.
2. Rachel Yoo and Blair Waldorf
Blair Waldorf will forever be one of my favorite tv characters, and so far Rachel Yoo is reminding me of her! Blair is never afraid to call anyone out on their crap, and Rachel is the same so far. Both also have mothers who have gotten divorces and then get remarried (or are about to). I am wondering if she will be any good at scheming like our Queen B though, maybe even with Choi Young Do.
3. Cha Eun Sang and Dan Humphrey
These last two are a little more of a stretch, but there are still some pretty big similarities. First off, both are "poor" compared to the wealthy people they know. They both also get involved romantically (I'm assuming with Heirs) with people who have more money than they do. They are both innocent of the corruption that the world of money brings, at least at first with Dan.
4. Kim Tan and Serena van der Woodsen
Both Heirs and Gossip Girl start off with these two M.I.A. from their homes. Kim Tan is in exile because of his brother, and Serena also exiled herself to run away from her past. They are both wealthy but they manage to also have friendly personalities. Also, they both get involved romantically (again I'm assuming) with people who have less money than they do.
These are just based on Episode 1, so who knows if these similarities will continue. But I don't think I would mind if they did! All I know is that I can't wait for more Heirs!
