I usually have to watch at least 2 or 3 episodes of any drama to get into it. Same goes for my all time favorite Secret Garden. The show didn't capture me until the first three episodes. But CYHMH is the first drama that only took fifteen minutes to get me in. The plot is so simple yet so intricate. The characters are conflicted and the actors do a fabulous job in read more portraying them perfectly.
CYHMH has everything a melodrama should have. The love story, which is so cute, the family problems, revenge-that's a big one, sibling fights, humor, and loads of drama that'll just blow your mind! The show does get serious at some point and make you think of a simple situation in several ways. But that's the beauty of it. JunHa/Ma Roo did scare me at times, he looked so freaking mad, but I guess he has a good reason for it.
I love the Cha DongJu and Jang Junha pair. They are so adorable together! And I just can't get enough if Kim Jae Wons smile. As I mentioned before, the actors were amazing depicting the characters lives. I wouldn't say it's very realistic cause I'm pretty sure things like that don't really happen in the real world, but it accurately shows the struggles and pain people of different status go through, whether they're chaebols or middle class people.
This is definately a drama people should watch. You won't regret it. It's got a good message too.

I wasn't really looking forward to watching Can You Hear My Heart just because the summary made it sound like it was going to be really weird/boring. But I love Hwang Jung Eum & Nam Goong Min and read positive reviews for it so decided I would try the first episode out...

Story- the first few episodes told the child stories. Normally I’ll fast forward through these because I don’t have the read more patience but I found the story compelling already. By the time the time the adult characters come on you are already immersed into the story and wanting to see how these damaged characters grew up and how they come together. This drama made me laugh and cry. The ending was just perfect=)

Acting/Cast- The acting was perfect by everyone. I am a new fan of Kim Jae Won! He portrayed his deaf character so well. Really spectacular acting by NGM. His character had so many layers and he was able to portray his complex character so well that I was able to feel Maru’s pain.

Music- Lovely score.

Rewatch- I’d watch this again in 2 years. That will give me enough time to forget a lot that happened. I loved the cast so i would want to see this again sooner than later.

Overall for a drama that is 30 eps, it is worth the watch because it’s so well written and acted.

Both are heart warming drama, TWTWB has female lead with blind while CYHMH has male lead with deaf.

Both are very good dramas that teaches you what's important in life. Both dramas have really good acting. Even though the plots aren't similar at all the feel in the dramas is similar and gives you this warm feeling.

    Out of all the actors, I felt connected with Nam Goong Min's character the most. Every time he cried, I cried as well. Ma Roo Oppa, Sarang Haeyo <3
