The Heirs (Huntington Beach)

Looks like Lee Min Ho is having a blast playing volleyball in between takes of shooting The Heirs.

Doesn’t this remind you of Jun Pyo during his awkward volleyball scene in Boys Over Flowers?

So many questions! Why are there two white girls playing with them? Were they really cast so they could be shown wearing bikinis while Jan Di and Ga Eul stay modestly covered?

Are Woo Bin and Yi Jung actually hooking up with these girls??

And what is with this awkward hug?

But seriously, I heart Boys Over Flowers, and I can’t wait for The Heirs!  I just hope the writers are able to incorporate the non-Korean (white) characters more naturally into the storyline.

The Heirs (casting)

Super excited (okay kind of hyperventilating) that The Heirs is filming in Malibu. Super sad that there is an anorexically slim chance of getting any background work on this project since I’m Asian. And they probably want to show that the main characters have non-Asian friends in the U.S  But goddammit, I am holding onto that slim chance right now.

Here’s the casting notice I got:
