I watched this drama simply because I saw the trailer and it seemed so promising. Solving legal cases with super power ability sounds interesting and new in kdramaland.
Also Yoon Sang Hyun (he acted in Secret Garden as Oska) and Lee Jong Suk (his acting in School 2013 gained lots of praise) as the main casts, yum.

And yes, the trailer didn't disappoint me at all. The first episode was so strong read more and left a very deep impact. I know I must watch this drama, as it got me hooked right away, plus it's another masterpiece by Dream High's screenwriter. (I love Dream High!)

This is a courtroom legal drama, mixed with romantic comedy, seasoned with fantasy "super hero" theme and his full-of-hatred-and-revenge villain. It might be too much for some people, but complicated is my thing (^^,)
Expect some thrills along the way, but it blends very well with the comical elements, so no need to worry about "heavy and tense" atmosphere at all.

First scene opens in Park Soo Ha's school, so one can think it's another usual high school drama. But as we ride throughout the journey, the story starts to unfold.
I love how it rolls seamlessly from present to past, describing the main casts' history/relationship and their current states/jobs/lives.
Beautifully woven story, nicely executed. And I promise it will be as enjoyable as it is, until the final episode.
One of the strongest and satisfying finale in kdramaland nowadays.

Also, I find it impossible not to falling in love with the main characters.
Either for the heroine Jang Hye Sung, a thick-face, comical, sharp-tongued lawyer.
Or Park Soo Ha himself, our hero with super power ability (he can hear other people's thoughts) who grew up without parents, but he made a sincere promise to protect the woman he love as a child (awwww... sweet puppy love T.T).
Or Cha Kwan Woo, a former detective who turns into lawyer because he has noble idealistic point of view.
Or even Min Joon Gook (Jung Woong In, acted in Queen Seon Duk as MiSaeng), our ruthless villain and his possible history that turned him into his current "beast" state.

All of the characters have realistic traits/flaws, it feels like they're "real" people. The actors and actresses did very great job in expressing them. Their acting levels are superb, and the chemistry are sooo great as well. Smartly written and casted!

What I love about this drama is, it delivers earnest messages about sincere love and trust, also how to be honest and brave and stick on to what you believe. It gives me warm and fuzzy feelings inside, without being too overly preachy. The nuna - dongsaeng love relationship (as well as the classic triangle love) is also cute, without being too corny or delusional. Something I can relate to in my personal life.

The musics are also great, really suit the drama mood. I'm currently listening to the OST while writing this. One of my favorite is by Jung Yeob (of Brown Eyed Soul) - Why Did You Just Came Now.

Nevertheless, this drama is not THAT perfect. Sometimes it feels too draggy in some episodes, especially after the extensions were announced. There is also one boring theme that goes over and over again, but it's all worth the wait because the ending is nearly perfect.
And I don't understand why almost in every case on this show seem to revolve around the same lawyers, prosecutors and judges LOL

Overall, I can say this is a pretty great watch and fully entertaining. IT IS THAT GOOD.
As for the re-watch value, all detective and legal dramas aren't fun to re-watch, are they?
But I have my personal favorite scenes and I might watch again later in the future :)

n all honesty, I had my doubts about watching it as, as far as I had seen and heard, I imagined as a sappy romantic drama and that is definitely not the type of drama I enjoy watching as they all end up being either lame or boring or both. Gladly, this one was neither lame nor boring and was absolutely captivating. I did start to watch it solely because of Lee read more JongSuk, but I kept on watching not only because of him, but also of pure interest of how things will develop.

I thoroughly enjoyed the supernatural twist as well as the romance between the main characters. Also the investigation details and the 'law' side of it all was fascinating to watch. This is definitely not one of those typical romantic dramas.

I would suggest to watch this drama to those who are interested in a good mix of everything – romance, action and supernatural – as this drama has everything in good dozes and it’s indeed captivating and interesting.

Both drama have mature female leads who are sassy, charismatic, humorous and beautiful. The male leads have super powers but they don't show off and be 'heroes'. The romance feels similar with both having a desperate tone as though they are about to lose each other and must treasure each moment they have. Although the story is very different in each drama, the same gut wrenching feeling of falling in love is present while watching both drama. All in all both are masterpieces of the romance/melodrama genre.

both of drama production with same witer and directer.. both of drama with genre melodramatic with romantic comedi.. they are not just like other drama just about romance, but we can learn something slice of life like family, friendship, etc.. especially about reporter for pinocchio, and lawyer for i hear your voice. if you like pinocchio, i am sure you will like i hear your voice too.

    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.

      I watched this a year and a half ago and I loved it. I thought it was great..well written and the leads had incredible chemistry. However, this is not everyone's cup of tea so you may not like it but I would still say try it. :)

    Up to now I don't get why it's so popular. o.O
    Didn't like the lead girl, didn't like the romance, didn't see the comical side...only the thriller aspect was good.

    I'm a law student so unfortunately I found far too many errors in this drama. Jang Hye Sung was just a terrible lawyer who overacted immensely. A lot of things she did would amount to contempt of court. The prosecutor was okay. Lack of law. No one gets selected on the basis of a sad tale, but that aside, given that this is a drama I will let that pass.
    Lee Jong Suk was wonderful as usual. The lead was okay. The story is fine. I honestly think that this drama's ratings are too high. But that could be because of the fact that I am a law student and it's hard to ignore glaring errors.
    I loved it's okay that's love, which misrepresented having a mental illness though, so that shows that it's a matter of opinion.

    Edit: At about episode 10 the law part improved slightly which made the drama bearable. I also started loving the drama at around this stage. :)
    Non-lawyers and even kdrama lawyers can watch this. The former will love it a lot more than the latter but it is still a drama that will invoke strong feelings and evoke the familiar longing for love that I assume all kdrama watchers have. :P

      Ha, I totally get how you feel about law parts. I cannot watch anything about doctors, I even cringe when someone performs CPR in a drama. Pity it is such a frequent setting lately. :-)

      Sort of can't believe that I typed this some 26 days ago. I've watched a fourth LJS drama since then. :)

      Haha, yes, when in mood it can go pretty smoothly. When I started with dramas I watched four Lee Jun Ki`s dramas in a row in three weeks. Yeah, that was .... intense :-D

    Saw the rating here and had to comment: This drama is in now way as good as its current rating shows (second overall). It was solid, 7-8/10, although, like most k-dramas, it dragged on some parts. As long as you don't go in expecting the masterpiece the rating here suggests, it will be enjoyable.

    Watchable drama but too cliche in many aspect.This is the highest rating korean drama here. Given this "mediocre" drama rating so highly, I guess It will be the last drama that i watch. I can say the best pairing is Hye Sung Do Yeon, Lawyer Cha He Syun coming in second. Park Soo Ha is the weakest part of this drama.

    This drama is perfection!!! One of my all-time favourites! This is the drama that made completely fall in love with Lee Jong Suk and his acting!
    The casting, the plot, the music, the ending, everything was superb, so it's a 10/10 for me!
    The age-difference thing didn't matter to me at all, I thought the main couple had great chemistry and looked good together!
    Please watch it if you haven't already! <3 <3
