I was skeptical at first to watch this drama because of the MANY episodes it has. I easily get bored at most of the Korean dramas and I thought they're kinda draggy. There are only few dramas that I finished till end just because I was bored and no other choice but to watch it to fast my time. So this drama kinda belong to the rare dramas I actually finished but read more I really enjoy.

Adding up to my disinterest to watch this was the poor synopsis available on-line. "A deaf man who pretends he can hear and an intelligent girl who pretends to be dumb" How can anyone be interest in that kind of synopsis? So I actually REALLY have no intention to ever watch this until I came across to a certain reviewer who happened to have the same interest/kind w/ mine. So I decided to give it a try on one fine day when I was bored. And just the episode one. It totally won me over.

And the mere fact that I like a beautiful cinematography, I stayed for this drama. The scenes are beautiful and relaxing. This actually convinced me to visit Korea someday! Just by the sceneary, I can say that this is a masterpiece!

About the acting aspects... I'm not very familiar with most of the actors in here. I knew the two actors (Kim Jae Won and his mother) in faces but not w/ their names. So everyone is new to me. All of them delivers perfectly! I feel for them. The guy who act as a mentally handicap was such a good actor. He played it well. And the granny, she is so realistic! Cha Dong Joo's portrayal of a deaf man (though it was not 100% realistic since I was really waiting for him to fail w/ all the lip reading, it never happened)pretending he can hear is so brilliant! He acted it so well and beautifully! Bong Ma Ru, at first his appearance doesn't appeal to me coz he seems not charismatic but as I see him interact w/ his bro CDJ, I'm seeing him in a different light! He is a true talent! How can he do those almost tearing acting? So brilliant! Their mother, Taek Su, she's so effective! Though she is crazy I actually understand why she's doing all those. Then, Bong Woo Ri, I actually find her character loud and annoying at the beginning. I even wished that the main OTP should have been CDJ and BMR but eversince she appears w/ CDJ. I like her more and more. I think CDJ and BWR has the most chemistry I have seen onscreen. Their just too cute for words! Let's not forget the bromance coz this scenario rarely happen in kdramaworld! I just have to say, the two brothers have an endearing chemistry! At first, I was rooting for them to be together LOL. And it breaks my heart when BMR turned dark coz it means no more bromance!

The music.... kinda corny... But the song "GOOD PERSON" won me over. And can the song be any sweeter when it was sung by our CDJ?

On being re watchable.. I had watched it twice! And glad I did coz there are few scenes I missed. And it didn't hurt it all coz I trully love everything about this drama..

My first drama over 24 episodes became one of the best dramas I'd ever seen for 2011! I've lost count how many times I've watched this since the first time watching it! The acting was superb by both the child actors as well as the adults! I became a fan for life to the principal actors, Nam Goong Min, Kim Jae Won, and Hwang Jung Eum; couldn't wait to watch other dramas/movies read more with them as characters. Everything about this drama is wonderful! You watch a romance that started as children continue to grow as adults with little conflict in relations to how they feel about each other. The stories about each of the characters is amazing. The supporting actors Lee Hye Young, Jung Bo Suk and Yoon Yeo Jeong is amazing! There are so many aspects of this drama which are very good. From the acting, cinematography and music; no stone was left unturned and the writers made sure that the story flowed! What else can I say without giving details except, this is a must-see!

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.

    Once again the writer's just had to be despicable and bring in not just a ludicrous love triangle, but much worse, a quad, just had to ruin a really great story... How shallow and stupid can you be? F'in despicable, stupid, and ludicrous writers, and that's putting it very lightly... AISH!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
