"I Hear Your Voice" is a really hard drama for me to review, since it's one of those dramas you really can't describe. So I'm just going to go right on ahead.
Story: The writer also wrote "Dream High", which was definitely well written but the actors weren't all that great. A few episodes in, it was really obvious that the writer was the same because- while the plot was completely different- read more the story was told with a ton of heart. The writer very obviously loved each and every character here and really fleshed them all out. I also feel like the writer has improved from her "Dream High" days, because the character arcs weren't so drastic here like they were in DH. The characters here moved along their little paths in subtle ways, becoming better people but still retaining their original selves. I especially loved Do Yeon's character arc because it really hit you in the heart. She started out a bitchy, arrogant girl and finally became a character you could love and respect. To be completely honest, by the end of the drama there really weren't any characters you actively hated. There were some you found pitiful, but everyone had their reasons for doing with they did and they all suffered the consequences of their actions. I kind of wish that Kwan Woo and Soo Ha had more scenes together, because they could have had an awesome bromance, but I did love the relationship they already had with each other. Another thing that I loved about this drama was the relationship between Kwan Woo and Hye Sung. Kwan Woo inspired Hye Sung to become a better lawyer and start trusting in her defendants, and they're the textbook example of a "what could have been" couple. As far as shortcomings go, they're all pretty much related to the courtroom stuff. For instance, there's only three lawyers, one judge and two prosecutors throughout this entire drama. The courtroom scenes were unrealistic and if I were a lawyer/ someone in the field, I would probably hate how that world is portrayed in this drama.
Acting: Lee Bo Young was really good and had cute chemistry with Lee Jong Suk despite their huge age gap. Yoon Sang Hyun was great and I adored Choi Sung Joon. Everyone worked well within their roles.
Music: 2013 seems to be the year of great drama OSTs for me. I loved "Echo" to bits and pieces. All the other songs were used well and really fit the overall themes of this drama.
Rewatch Value: Of course, the second time you watch it won't be the same, but there are some parts that are worth the rewatch.
Overall: I know this is a bit last-minute, but I really have to commend "I Hear Your Voice" for coming up with such a clever title. The titular "voice" is different for each and every character. For Soo Ha, it's people's thoughts, for Hye Sung it's hearing and believing in her defendant's words and I don't want to give away Kwon Woo's because it's such a spoiler. Unlike other dramas, the title isn't just there on a surface level, but it really touches each and every facet of the drama, which just shows how much thought was put into it.

I will confess to watching quite a few kdramas and the fact that very few of them make my list of re-watchables or ultimate all-time favorites. And I'm happy to admit that I hear your voice makes that special list comprising very few names.
It has everything -
i)a recurring theme of justice, notions of culpability, a moving discourse on the thin line of difference between fair and unfair and the human read more desire for connection
ii)A solid ensemble cast who put up stellar performances (Lee Bo Young is outstanding as the prickly, smartass, intelligent, independent modern woman and so is Yoon Sang Hyun as the goofy but upright defense attorney. Lee Jong Suk is quite convincing in his difficult role as well)
iii)A well plotted story that makes sense and doesn't frustrate us with its lack of rationale.
iv)great music which goes with the overall tone of the story and adds to the many tender or suspenseful moments that the characters share with each other
AND last but not the least.....
v)a heart-melting noona-dongseng romance. If Soo Ha and Hye Seong's romance didn't move you or you are still cringing at the age difference thing then I'm sorry to say you're not a very sensitive human being.

So if you're still hesitating and wondering whether it's worth a shot to invest 18+ hours in this specific drama, do not worry and JUST GO RIGHT AHEAD AND WATCH IT. This drama gifts you with an amazing, amazing experience, teaches you lots about human empathy, nitty gritties of the law and the ultimate need to hear and respond to someone's voice (be it a stranger or someone you've known for ages) (Yeah sorry couldn't help but use that cliche)

There are definitely some similarities between these two dramas. In IHYV it's a guy who gains special abilities after an accident and then helps a lawyer, in TGWSS it's a girl who gains special abilities after an accident and then helps a police officer. There is also revenge in both dramas.

    Finished watching this and don't understand why its so popular. The drama is ok but I fast forwarded through most of it. Seeing how crazy Min Joon Kook can get made me keep watching. But for the most part I didn't care about the court scenes,biological fathers and the relationship crap was boring.They never explained what happened to Hye Sung father.

    I thought he could only read thoughts when he looked into the eyes. But there were plenty of instances of him reading thoughts without that. Like in the courthouse when he heard Min Joon voice.

    Is this a love triangle romance?

      Yeah, a little, but almost nothing. The other guy likes the female lead, but in a funny way, and nothing happen between them at any point of the drama.

    this show made me fall in love with Lee Jong Suk's acting. The main girl is true to her character and is pretty realistic, but she annoyed me on multiple occasions. I liked pretty much the whole cast by the last episode, and even felt a slight pity for the main villain--but i still hate him.

    I love Lee Jong Suk and this drama, but Hye Sung can really be frustrating, even though it does makes her character more relatable. I just feel bad for Su Ha, because everyone's all worried about her with the whole danger/revenge thing, and feels bad for her, but he had the same thing happen, but he was younger and saw it in person. Plus he's been alone all this time, and she's had so many people. But I'm biased.
