I Hear Your Voice – My Personal Review ^^

Finally I can drag my lazy a** to write again! Annyeongggg my long abandoned blog 😀

I watched this drama simply because I saw the trailer and it seemed so promising. Solving legal cases with super power ability sounds interesting and new in kdramaland.
Also Yoon Sang Hyun (he acted in Secret Garden as Oska) and Lee Jong Suk (his acting in School 2013 gained lots of praise) as the main casts, yum.

And yes, the trailer didn’t disappoint me at all. The first episode was so strong and left a very deep impact. I know I must watch this drama, as it got me hooked right away, plus it’s another masterpiece by Dream High’s screenwriter. (I love Dream High!)

 
This is a courtroom legal drama, mixed with romantic comedy, seasoned with fantasy “super hero” theme and his full-of-hatred-and-revenge villain. It might be too much for some people, but complicated is my thing (^^,)
Expect some thrills along the way, but it blends very well with the comical elements, so no need to worry about “heavy and tense” atmosphere at all.

 
First scene opens in Park Soo Ha’s school, so one can think it’s another usual high school drama.

But as we ride throughout the journey, the story starts to unfold.
I love how it rolls seamlessly from present to past, describing the main casts’ history/relationship and their current states/jobs/lives.
Beautifully woven story, nicely executed. And I promise it will be as enjoyable as it is, until the final episode.
One of the strongest and satisfying finale in kdramaland nowadays.

 
Also, I find it impossible not to falling in love with the main characters.
Either for the heroine Jang Hye Sung, a thick-face, comical, sharp-tongued lawyer.
Or Park Soo Ha himself, our hero with super power ability (he can hear other people’s thoughts) who grew up without parents, but he made a sincere promise to protect the woman he love as a child (awwww… sweet puppy love T.T).
Or Cha Kwan Woo, a former detective who turns into lawyer because he has noble idealistic point of view.
Or even Min Joon Gook (Jung Woong In, acted in Queen Seon Duk as MiSaeng), our ruthless villain and his possible history that turned him into his current “beast” state.

All of the characters have realistic traits/flaws, it feels like they’re “real” people. The actors and actresses did very great job in expressing them. Their acting levels are superb, and the chemistry are sooo great as well. Smartly written and casted!

What I love about this drama is, it delivers earnest messages about sincere love and trust, also how to be honest and brave and stick on to what you believe. It gives me warm and fuzzy feelings inside, without being too overly preachy. The nuna – dongsaeng love relationship (as well as the classic triangle love) is also cute, without being too corny or delusional. Something I can relate to in my personal life.

The musics are also great, really suit the drama mood. I’m currently listening to the OST while writing this. One of my favorite is by Jung Yeob (of Brown Eyed Soul) – Why Did You Just Came Now.

Nevertheless, this drama is not THAT perfect. Sometimes it feels too draggy in some episodes, especially after the extensions were announced. There is also one boring theme that goes over and over again, but it’s all worth the wait because the ending is nearly perfect.
And I don’t understand why almost in every case on this show seem to revolve around the same lawyers, prosecutors and judges LOL

Overall, I can say this is a pretty great watch and fully entertaining. IT IS THAT GOOD.
As for the re-watch value, all detective and legal dramas aren’t fun to re-watch, are they?
But I have my personal favorite scenes and I might watch again later in the future 🙂

“I know why you’re anxious, and I know why you’re always preparing for a time without me. But even if that time comes, I won’t worry. Even when ten years had passed, I recognized you. When I lost my memories, when I had erased you, I came to love you again. Even if ten more years pass, if I lose my memories again, if that time you’re worried about comes… I’ll find you… and I’ll love you again.”

– Park Soo Ha
