Those who want to wear the crown, must bear its weight
“Do I like you?”
To feel refresh herself; Eun-Sang goes to an old and shabby movie theater which she used to go alone. Kim Tan follows her and he also has a sit next to her. And he says, “Do I like you?”
It’s not quite a love confession, but this line shows Tan likes her a lot.
It is a love story drama between rich heirs Kim Tan and just ordinary girl Cha Eun-Sang, both are high school students. While broadcasting this drama, it had made lots of viewers’ hearts leave a vacant hole. Even though it’s just love story between high school students, a lot of drama viewers couldn’t pass this kind of beautiful love story.
‘The Heirs’ describes the friendships, rivalries and love story of young, rich heirs led by Kim Tan (Lee Min-Ho) and a girl named Cha Eun-Sang (Park Shin-Hye). Unlike the others, Cha Eun-Sang is considered ordinary and comes from a poor background. Eun-Sang first meets Tan, who is a high school student in California, while traveling in there. Eun-Sang falls out ziplock bag with a powdery which looks like drugs, but not drugs. For that reason, Eun-Sang’s passport is temporarily confiscated by police station. Eun-Sang has nowhere to stay, so Tan offers her to stay in his house. Tan had felt lonely for a long time while staying alone in California. While Tan is having a time with Eun-Sang, he steadily falls in love with her. Eventually, Eun-Sang returns to South Korea.
After she left, he feels his empty. He decided to go back to Korea for her. When Tan arrives in his luxurious mansion, he meets Eun-Sang again as a housekeeper’s daughter in his house. Now, Tan and Eun-Sang live in the same house.
In the drama, there is a café where Eun-Sang is working as a part-time job. In there, lots of important story plays out.
Today, I’d like to introduce you the café ‘Mango Six’, Kim Tan (Lee Min-Ho) and Choi Young-Do (Kim Woo-Bin) had a drinks bickering each other to gain favor with Eun-Sang.
Those who want to gain favor with Eun-Sang, must visit this Mango Six!
 Mango Six in Posco branch in Gangnam
In the drama, Tan and Young-Do usually visit this café to see Eun-Sang, while she’s working. The two guys always spar with each other. This scene made them cuter and the drama more fun. In the last part of the drama, Tan and Eun-Sang’s love story turned to tragic scene. In front of Mango Six, they hug and share their sorrow with each other. On the day Tan comes out he’s a child of a concubine, he visit the café, where Eun-Sang is working. And he just has a talk with her through only with their eyes without any speaking.
The location, where the drama <The Heirs> was broadcasted, is ‘Mango Six Posco branch’. When I visited this café, I reminded of scenes in the drama such as where Tan and Eun-Sang hugged each other, Tan and Young-Do spared with each other, and Eun-Sang used to make the Mango drinks, etc. It’s not far from Gangnam area. When you visit Gangnam, if you have free time, try to stop by there. Become Eun-Sang like in the drama.

Until Now, I introduced two cafés ‘Mango Six in Posco branch in Gangnam’ and ‘Forest Hill Studio in Cheongdam-dong’. I think you must be interested in this posting.
