IHYV is such a well-rounded drama, there’s so much I would love to point into that I can’t think of something to concentrate for a catchy intro, lol. Anyway, as a drama of the hour, I don’t think anyone isn’t at least curious enough; it has high ratings, very popular throughout its run, with an interesting fantasy/law/rom-com premise and what else? It has very good responses from its viewers.

It is definitely read more well-deserved in my opinion.Therefore, my review is not for the purpose of persuasion, but I would like to discuss, why I LOVE this drama.

Story: First of all, I love that the general premise of the story was the perspective of a public defender and not the elite prosecution side. Many may not want the court proceedings but it has a lot of heart that I felt it’s not the cases the writer wants us to understand, but something beyond it and she wants is to understand the other side of the coin, “the voice” not only victim but the accused. It felt more humane, conscientious and will make one think the other side of a person. What something viewed as a good thing cannot be necessarily feel the right thing. I gave the story a 10 not because it’s a perfect story, it has some issues on legal aspects, however, it does a brilliant way of grasping and playing my emotions on different levels while maintaining an excellent pace that every minute counts as every character’s story unfolds. For a while I saw myself giggling, then a moment after, I’m holding my breath because of the suspense and before I knew it, I found that I cried before the credits roll. I love how the writer made little things significant and how will it matter as the story progresses. I think the fantasy element of the drama was interesting enough, but what I love most here was the message the writer would like to deliver – the spirit of forgiveness as an attribute of the strong people, and revenge will only make one weak and pitiful. She delivered it well, it made me felt good, best, sad, and worst of the characters.

Taking side on the characters, again, the writer did a great job of putting not only the leads but almost everyone of equal importance that make the story more engaging and for the viewers to love most of them. I love all the characters here perhaps the right word was I became attached to them., even the villain, I feel bad for him in the end. Majority of the characters are flawed- which is realistic, the good thing is, they eventually develop and grow as mature person that made the story even better.

For the romance, woooahhh.. Let’s all squeal for I’m sold for the noona-dongsaeng pairing the moment I had seen the first episode. I don’t have any indifference on age-gap because the leads carried on their acting well, chemistry was very evident, it’s very easy to root for them as a couple. The ending, – one of the best out there.

Acting/Cast: Lee Bo Young was excellent, Lee Jong Suk too and Yoon Sang Hyun of course, this drama made me a fan of them. The couple looked so great and comfortable with each other on screen. As I said, I love all of the characters, not only they are written well, they are convincing too, how I wish every side characters I will see the next drama after this will be the as adorable as them. Oh well.

Music: Echo by Every Sing Day was very fitting on the ending credits, it’s may favorite soundtrack as well as Why Did You Just Came Now by Jung Yup. When it’s time for suspense there’s a good instrumental played that can increase the tension of the scene.

Rewatch Value: I rarely rewatch and the more that it a suspense-drama, the more I like it, everything was fresh and clear in my memory so far, therefore, not likely soon.

Overall: I loved this drama, it has a compelling story with an unusual fantasy element, great characters, excellent acting, will grip your heart like no other, has very good ending and most of all, it delivered an inspiring message for its viewers.

To simply put it, this drama is on my all time favourite list. The story was unique, had me acting like Sherlock Holmes.
The story was...captivating; it had AMAZING moments of romance, comedy, action, thriller, drama. Everything was well balanced, and well though out (WELL DONE SCREENPLAY WRITERS!!).
The cast, my oh my...need I say more. They all had amazing chemistry and made it seem realistic. I even found the anti-hero compelling! read more Everything worked really well together. I thoroughly enjoyed it, I really did.
If you're seeking something that is not easily predictable, with a good plot, and adorable/cute/fantastic actors then this show is for you!

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.

    i've just finished this drama and it was awesome!! at first i was hesitant whether to watch it or not, because of the age difference between main leads, but it's really not a problem. So if you're thinking about watching it, do it, it's really worth it :)

    Watching this for the 4th time. I love "Lee Bo Young". This is the K-drama that I've re-watched the most.
