Surprised to see so many negative comments. It's not award winning material for sure, but I think it's at least decent. I can see where some of the criticism comes from and some of the episodes were a bit on the boring side, but it has picked up a lot lately and I find it rather enjoyable to watch.

To be honest, I am a bit conflicted about it. Some aspects are treated rather poorly
For example, how each woman conveniently disappears after she served her purpose in the story, with a half-assed reason at that. It's rather cartoonish and nonsensical at times (it's more than a bit contrived how Ma Te seduces each woman) and the one note acting of Han Chae Yeong is a bit annoying.

But on the other hand, it does some very good things as well. I like how they focus on other aspects of the story instead of giving the romance center stage, all the MG group story was a bit boring at first, but now I'm hooked on it as the mystery thickened. Also I was never too inclined to like the second male lead in all the dramas I've ever seen & this is the first time I really like him, they actually gave him a personality here and I find him quite endearing. Now about Bo Tong, I find it refreshing that although she's a complete fangirl, yet she still has a spine and she's not the same old pure innocent Candy girl. On paper, her character seems like something I'd hate, but I actually find her funny and some of her actions surprised me in a good way (going against usual drama cliches). She has definitely started to change in the last few episodes. Bo Tong and David are certainly the best things this drama has to offer, their relationship is awesome. Ma Te is an interesting character, I hope we'll see some great character growth and development by the end of the series. He is far from being among the most obnoxious/insufferable male leads dramaland has offered.

So as flawed and ridiculous as this show is, it is not without its merits and good points I think. Sorry for the rant, just wanted to balance things out a bit. I've seen up to episode 11 by the way.

I am at Episode 3 right now and even though it's not the usual exciting love-story, I don't dislike it. I already feel my heart hurt, because I want Bo Tong to end up with David instead of Ma Te, but well, I think I will get to like Ma Te at some point. So far I don't like his arrogant behaviour, but that's always how the jerk-male-leads start off. *haha*

I have seen too many dramas, and this isn't bad, at all. In fact, this is a great show. I think there is a bit too much focus on the MG company stuff, but other than that it's great. I think IU is doing great and her chemistry with both male leads is amazing. Just because a drama isn't pure fan service and lovey-dovey moments, that doesn't make it any less enjoyable. I love how it's a slow, quiet, love story. Bo Tong and Ma Te's relationship feels natural, unlike how we are told in other dramas that the OTP should be together, in this drama we feel it. I think this is one of the better love triangles written lately. How can so many people love Heirs but hate this? I don't get it... especially after episode 14, it was lovely.

I can only agree with all that was written here: it's a very boring & really bad drama. THe characters are very stupid, the plot is silly, nothing happens. All the quests are ridiculous.
I guess, this drama is about money & being too good-looking.
What's the idea???
But the most stupid thing is that we keep saying smth about it.
I'm totally disappointed with everything.
I used to love Keun Suk & to say he was good in dramas (he was awesome playing In Ha!!), I really liked IU in Dream High..... but this drama has already ruined everything even haven't finished yet. What else to expect from it?? Nothing.
But since I started it, I'm going to finish...

Really bad, and all the characters act so stupid. The girls Ma Te must date are ridiculous, the choices they have to make are ridiculous. The love triangle could be good but it's not. I wonder for whom this drama is. I'm sorry.. but seriously, it hurts my brain when i'm watching this.

I kinda have something against idols being in dramas especially if they're a main xD and so.. not that I don't like IU, but the main cast looks amazing besides her D': tried to watch it, and even worse I don't really like IU's character xD~
