TL;DR? Why aren't you watching this already? :p

I debated for a while about whether or not I was going to write a review for this drama, since anything that could be said about it has probably been said by one of the multitude of other reviews, and probably said better than my bungling attempts to commit feelings to paper. But this drama is one of the few dramas I have watched read more that completely bewitched me from the get-go and never lets up! If you haven't watched this drama, you're making a mistake!

OK, so "mistake" is a little harsh. I watched most of the episodes as they were airing, which was absolute torture. Waiting each week to find out what was happening to these people I had grown to love so much was more than I could take, so I ended up stopping and catching up after it finished. It took me almost a month to actually find the courage to watch the last episode. Not because I was worried it would be bad, but because I was not ready to let go, and I still don't think I am.

The reasons to watch this drama are staggering. The cast is so amazingly well suited and have such great chemistry together. It was just such a fun ride to watch the characters grow and change together. And this drama is certainly not lacking in personal growth. There isn't a single character that does not undergo some kind of change in the way they behave or think, and it's really nice to watch how they navigate situations they are unsure of.

The storyline is compelling, I never once felt bored throughout all 18 episodes, which is definitely a praise-worthy feat. The romance is prevalent almost throughout, so it's important to like romance as a prominent feature of your dramas. It's not just the romance, though. There is a dash of mystery, quite a bit of action, revenge, romance, a little bit of a supernatural element. It's a pretty complete package.

Honestly, I have no complaints where this drama is concerned. I don't give out 10s very often, I usually can be pretty pragmatic when rating dramas. But I Hear Your Voice is such a winning combination of all of my favorite things, I am hard pressed to find fault with it.

Plot: Fantastic plot that always leave you wanting for more. The characters, the storyline, the relationships and chemistry everyone has with each other really hits hard on the feels. Found myself crying, laughing, awing so many times. Perfect from beginning middle and end.

Cast: freaking loved lee jong suk and lee Bo young. This is the couple of the year for me. Really likeable cast, and hateful villains. Acting was perfection. Character read more development for all the cast members were great.

Music: great ost, but I couldn't remember any significant songs I really loved.

Overall: this is definately the drama of the year for me, and one of my favourite dramas of all time. It incorporates everything, sweet romantic scenes, revenge and vengeance, action, betrayal, trust and loyalty, and teaches one how to forgive and make amends.

Both involve the relationship between a career woman and a high school student. High School King of Savvy is more lighthearted than I Hear Your Voice.
Recommended by tashe_12
They are both about a young boy who is wronged by the law. In both cases the boys have super-abilities (one is more ..fantastical than the other). Both stories also contain an older noona through whom the boy's goal of bringing the criminal to court is accomplished. This noona also serves as the love interest.

There are even parallel scenes.

In other words, they are pretty much the same, except for casting, music, and circumstantial differences. Soo Ha and Dae Gu would find they have waayyy tooo much in common, if they met.

Oh, but there is one notable difference: Hye Sun is bold and sassy throughout the show, Soo Soon only manages to be bold and sassy while she's still a teenager. That side of Soo Soon dies out once she becomes an adult.

    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 :))

    the plot story is REALLY good... though I have a problem with the chemistry of the official couple. They have a great love story but as I said they lack chemistry..

    Love this drama... the main leads do have a great chemistry despite the age gap. Plus very great acting especially for the villain... he got me very angry but at the same time I pity him..

    This is at best 8 star drama. Sometime i wonder why people hype this drama. Every thing is so bland. romance bland , acting bland...too much court scene...waste of time.

      Here is my answer--->If you sooo feel that way,definitely obviously this drama is NOT for you then.Just stay away from this drama as much as you don't like it. Anddd 3,339 ppl that rated it 10 or 2,282 ppl that rated it 9 also have reasons why they hyped up about this drama just like you have reasons why you dislike this though >.< Sorry to say this but its kind of annoying for me to see someone who does'nt like a certain drama and posted only negative things about it not only once (once is still ok) BUT thrice on the page, like he want to force his opinion on somebody.For me if you really2 don't like the drama,just DON'T watch it.Simple! And it doest hurt you to do that -.-"
