This is a simple yet a nothing close to realistic drama that easily makes you forget about reality. It is an adaptation that you'd originally expect to be bad and uncomparable to the webtoon however, it's nothing like that. It gives the same vibe as the webtoon and it is equally (or sometimes more) funny to it.
This drama will have you laughing (literally) non-stop.

The main cast is very good and read more the cameos are just as great (and countless), wit some of them beeing: Song Joong Ki, Jung Joon Young, Kim Jong Kook, Laboum and others..

Also, the music is unexpectedly good, I personally had no idea MFBTY participated, so I was pleasantly surprised. And aside from all the comedy, there's also romance and lots of character development!

This is a very sort webdrama even though it's 20 episodes long, so you can easily finish it in a day. If you watch this You definitely won't be disappointed.

I'm going to try my best not to rave about this comedy. If I fail, sorry. Let me state clearly that it's beyond rare that I give anything all 10s. I mean RARE as in haven't done it in years rare. Is Sound that good? You damn well better believe it. This show is funny. BUT you have to like stupid funny. What I mean is you have to like laughing at read more things that are so improbable they are hilarious. Liking some toilet or bawdy humor isn't bad either. Remember this was a 15 minute web series. It didn't run on SK tv so they pushed the Korean envelope a bit on things they could and couldn't do and (pretend to) show. As a struggling web artist Jo Seok (portrayed by Lee Kwang Soo) lives at home with his parents and younger brother. The show is about things that happen in his daily life (and to some extent his family's lives) as they all go about their daily routines.

Lee Kwang Soo stood out to me when I first saw him in City Hunter. I don't know why; he just did. He quickly became one of my favorite cast members on Running Man. Since then, I've seen almost all his series and a fair amount of his movies. His acting has gotten better and better. As the lead in Sound, he's perfect. The cast he leads which includes the phenomenal Kim Mi Kyung. (I swear she is the hardest working woman in South Korea) are equally as perfect. This is the odd case where the casting director got it right all the way around. Speaking of RM, ex-RM, Song Joon-Ki is in an episode for maybe 2 minutes. Current member Kim Jong Kook is in another episode for perhaps 10-15 minutes. That brings me to the episodes. The webtoons were 15 minutes. Luckily, I found 30 minute episodes (2 web eps put together of course).

The writing is fantastic. There are some crude scenes (remember that potty humor I mentioned), but don't let that deter you. Those couple of scenes are really setting up something bigger and funnier. WARNING: The funny may sneak up on you. I started watching Sound at work. A scene came out of left field and took me by surprise. I basically holler laughed and had my supervisor at my desk wondering what I was doing. There's very little character development as it's not that kind of a show. There is character familiarity. You get to know these characters quickly as you do if you were just starting to read a comic or watch an animation. Hopefully, there will be more seasons and we'll see them develop.

The music was good... I guess. LOL I remember there was music and it fit well. I didn't find it hokey or silly. Just appropriate.

Overall, I adored The Sound of Your Heart. For me it was the perfect 30 minute nugget to help get me through my days. I've actually watched it twice in less than 2 weeks. I guess the rewatch factor is kind of high, huh? ;-) Mind you, the type of slapsticky comedy might not be for everyone, but you never know until you try.

Also a short mini series with short episodes. Very funny due to physical humor and misunderstandings. Although the story and characters are different. The type of humor is very similar.

    This is the kdrama equivalent of the anime "Daily lives of high school boys" in a family setting. Most of the jokes are really funny.
    This is a fresh take on comedy with small skits that don't drag. Definitely need a second season.
    There are a lot of poop and fart jokes. Just when you think there are no more poop jokes, they serve you one more. Its just like when you have diarrhea and you have to do the honors once again, even though you squeezed out your intestines the last time.

      It's a half hour per episode, 20 episodes. Which means, 10 episodes for one hour each

    Wow i just found this show in the US on Netflix. This show is hilarious. I'm only 6 episodes in and it gets funnier and funnier. The cast and pacing is great and the music in this series is wonderful. I've fallen in love with the Just Right song from Lena Park. It fits this quirky comedy so good. It does have it's potty humor but the situations are funny but its the odd family bit that everyone can associate with. This is my first Korean comedy and i am so glad i found this.

    This show is gold, i watched this on Normal sub sites which has somewhat small size episodes and are messed up while Netflix has all the episodes arranged and in the correct order with 27-30 mins each episode

    By far, one of the best korean comedies ever produced! (so far).
    Great acting from awesome characters! hopefully there's a season 2 soon.
    the only place that it's available fully is on Netflix; so if you have an account, go check it out!
