After the disaster that was 2012's "Tone Deaf Cinic", I highly anticiapted this drama with Yoon Sang Hyun in a supporting role and I was not disappointed. All of the main characters were really well played. Jang Hye Sung (played by Lee Bo Young) was a refreshing female lead as an attorney who was good at her job, when she wanted to be. So many other k-dramas portray the female lead as read more totally inept in her job. Yoon Joo Sang as Attorney Shin comes off at first as the office curmudgeon but as the story unfolds, he is revealed to be so much more than a cranky old man. Additional eye candy in the PD's office, Choi Yoo Chang, is portrayed by Choi Sung Joon.

The big star of this drama was of course Lee Jung Suk, who went from being Oska's musical rival in "Secret Garden" to the main contender for Attorney Jang's affections, with Sang Hyun's character Attorney Cha as his rival. From this drama, it seems like Lee Jung Suk will continue on in more meaty roles as he matures both as a man and an actor.

And what would a drama be without a good bad guy? Jung Woong In as Min Joon Kook was the blast from the past that brought all the characters together and the catalyst for the plot and it's backstory.

This drama was originally slated for 16 episodes, and two more were added early on, most likely due to phenomenal ratings that were in the low to mid 20 percents. Fortunately, the additional episodes did not result in adding crazy plot twists nor a sloppy ending just for the sake of extending the drama's run. The story remains cohesive throughout, with the usual quantity of kdrama flashbacks, brooding, and reminiscing. Still, a great story with a great cast.

Firstly I thought this drama wasn't THAT good. I was sure it would be something kinda funny,cause of the fantasy in it, and the posters were not that impressive.
I changed my mind since the first episode. It was the kind of drama that I wasn't looking for, but you can't do anything, because once you see the first ep it takes you into the characters world.
I saw this while airing, read more from the second episode till the last, and I was waiting like a crazy for it every week. If a drama has this effect on me, it is good indeed.

The storyline is simple but well done: a story of revenge, and justice with the saddest moments, the sweetest one and action at their right place.
Even the romance is well balanced, and it never gets you annoyed. The love story between the characters is beautiful and makes your heart beats everytime. I loved the main couple, a pure love but also a strong one.
I loved the characters because they are kinda smart in their mistakes.
The cast was just perfect. Jong Suk and Bo Young are in their roles, you can see their differences very well. Sang Hyun too is very good as always making a role different from the one I knew him for. Woong In was just perfect in his role, I really could feel the tension while he was on screen.

Also the music was awesome, I loved the sad/deep/funny/relaxing songs.
What more can I say? The perfect drama. From the first the last episode.
Everyone should see it!

Both dramas have the same writer and PD, and also star Lee Jong Suk who can be considered to have the same kind of character : both have been hurt in the past, and are trying to get over it in a way...
Recommended by Clemi-chan
Both involves an older female lead who had cynical rough attitudes brought about their experiences as they grew older. Both dramas have younger male leads who loved and cherished the female leads in their hearts since they were kids.
Both dramas involve cohabitation and the sweet interaction brought about by this and how eventually the female leads realized how they can't live without the male leads because they are so used to it that they have taken it for granted before.
The love between the leads eventually changes the female leads character for the the better whether it be on her outlook in life and love.
both male leads are adorable with their pupply love and wearing their hearts on their sleeves. Swoon worthy if you like noona romance.

    Saw the first episode and only the first episode. I won't be continuing the drama because in my opinion, I found it to be absolutely tasteless and unappealing, nor did the initial/first impression leave me wanting to see more. The whole accident-thing was so ridiculously unrealistic that I couldn't even bear it. Although surely those are things to overlook in dramas and such, I really couldn't because I'm one of those people who watch things and think, "why the hell would you ever even do that? why?"

    Not a drama for me. However my friends reallyyyyyyyyyyyy enjoy it.

    This is really good for a Korean drama. Though the advertising in every episode was very pushy.

    I'm so glad i watched this drama, it was overwhelming from the very beginning to the very end. I cherished most of the time i spent with I Hear Your Voice and the main cast really poured themselves into their roles, it felt like a soulful testimony dare i say. Not only them, but the supporting roles as well, the scriptwriter offered them space to breathe and in their very own way they completed the great puzzle named I Hear Your Voice. I'm pretty sure this drama has a lot of messages to deliver; and they were reflected pretty well. Of course it's a matter of taste whether one is going to love this series or not, as for myself, my personal taste became richer, henceforth i' m really glad. I even like the title, it wasn't only about Soo Ha's special ability to hear people's thoughts, it' s also about a deeper understanding of the people in your surrounding environment, whether it was about Soo Ha's charisma/personal-hell (it was always loud) or not. A matter of understanding and cherishing or the loss of understanding and getting trapped in your own self's torment. Had i the power to get back in time, i' d let myself get devoured by I Hear Your Voice as gently as it already happened.

    I put this drama off for awhile but I'm glad i picked it back up. It was excellent! I was just a tad bit skeptic for the Noona romance but man none of that stuff even matters!!! The OST, the acting, the storyline...it was just so well executed, the synopsis doesn't do it justice. So many emotions of sadness, fear, hate, love, happiness blended so well. I'm so happy i finished it. Just great great great. Every single episode.

    I'm not really a fan of noona romance but the unique premise shown from the first episode sold me on this romance and their entwined fate right away. Lee Bo Young's Hye Sung has to be my favorite kdrama heroine so far. I was also wondering what was the hype all about for Lee Jong Suk, but I can see it now, he showed a wide range of acting here, and is just adorable as Soo Ha. Supporting cast is also amazing both in acting and their characterization, you will feel as you've grown with all the characters. I want my own Atty Cha and Soo Ha! This drama certainly has a message to convey to its viewers and I hear its voice loud and clear. The drama also balances the cute and suspense really well. As I also love Dream High dearly which came from the same writer and production, I'm avidly looking forward to their next drama.

    I was not a fan of korean dramas until I encountered IHYV. The story is very well written and the way it was told was smooth and perfectly executed, no dull moments. The development of characters are also shown effectively. It has all sorts of genre; there's a little bit of everything - and that makes it one hell of an amazing drama :))
