Korean actors Lee Min-ho and Choi Jin-hyuk gave notice of a fierce showdown in upcoming drama “The Inheritors.”

The two actors filmed the first encounter scene of their characters at an almond farm in Los Angeles, the U.S., last month, the show’s promoter 3HW COM said in a press release Tuesday.

Each taking on Empire Group’s inheritor Kim Tan and the group’s president Kim Won, Lee and Choi portrayed the twisted fate of the brother with outstanding facial expressions in beautiful scenery, the promoter explained.

“It was somewhat tiring due to the time difference and long travel between filming sets, but I feel happy that we filmed nice scenes enough to repay those hard works,” Choi was quoted as saying.

Co-starring popular actors Park Shin-hye, CNBLUE’s Kang Min-hyuk, Kim Woo-bin, f(x) Krystal and ZE:A’s Hyungsik, the series centers on love and friendship among upper-class high school students.

Written by acclaimed scriptwriter Kim Eun-sook of “Gentleman’s Dignity” and “Secret Garden,” the upcoming drama is set to premiere on SBS on October 9, taking over the baton from current series “Master’s Sun.”
