In general I have favorites, but I never pick A favorite. Whether it's books, movies, colors, shows, or dramas. Yet as I kept getting farther and farther into I Hear Your Voice I knew it was knocking every dramas I had have watched out. Knock out! Before IHYV even ended I had put it in my number one spot for favorite dramas. And to be honest it's going to take one heck read more of a dramas to out do IHYV. Which amazes me.

Up front I am going to say I have no problem with an older woman having romance with a younger guy. True he's younger, in high school, but that doesn't even become a factor as there's a love triangle. Our leading lady is in fact in love with someone else. There's time jumps. So people calm down. (Plus, I've seen dramas TV and movies with the younger GIRL still being in high school. Heck one was in Junior High.) Oh, and what a love triangle indeed. It's one that shows you why it's used so heavily. Because when done right it's pure emotional torture. And you love every second of it. Especially when you've picked a team, you're still torn as to who the lead should end up with!

The writing and story of IHYV is exceptional. Many things that could have been too much for the drama weren't an issue. With Soo Ha actually being a leading man, the young one, and being able to read minds I was nervous. However, it felt so natural and realistic. True there were a few inconstancies, but it was never a real problem. Mixed in with the love story, the court cases, and so forth it was a well utilized and realized fantasy element. Don't worry about it feeling like a fantasy though, because IHYV is a genre fusion blend. The kind only great writing like this can pull off!

Great writing. I said that a lot in my episode reviews, and I meant it. Every aspect of the story is thought out. Everything ties in, nothing is wasted. Which means there are NO fillers. Amnesia, perfect fit for the story. Only enhanced things. That's how you use it other dramas! Time jumps, flawless. In fact the second to last episode does some fancy and adrenaline inducing time jumps/flashbacks that will leave viewers in awe. The cases and law used IHYV is clearly looked into. Sometimes I thought they had slipped, but after looking it up and waiting for the next episode I was just jumping the gun. (So even though it IS a drama, there is a very solid foundation for it.)

The acting here is impeccable! Especially when accompanied by such solid writing. Every character develops throughout the show. Ones that viewers may have expected to loath become human. The ice queen Prosecutor Seo actually became a favorite of mine. The writers even make one of the most chilling villains into a human. Understanding his motives after being scared, and hating him, for so long is well done. All of the actors have earned my respect here. The emotions I felt where so intense.

Jang Hye Sung is one of the most well developed female characters that I've had the pleasure of watching in a drama. Sure at times it bothered me how she wouldn't learn her lessons. That it would take many repeated times before she would see the light! I got frustrated many a time. However, she was real. I could relate and when she did develop it was amazing to watch. As she realized that she should chose to make herself how she wanted. That life is too precious to be hung up on dark emotions and regret.

Both male leads are amazing. Soo Ha and Cha have both earned top places in my heart. Both are fantastic people. And like with all the characters watching them develop is a treat. Even more so since they both have amazing chemistry with Hye Sung. What a lucky girl!

The music is fantastic! Probably one of my all time favorite OST! It's so different and unique and I love that they went there for it. Because it fits IHYV perfectly. It was so much a part of the show that without it a lot of the moments and feelings may have been lost.

Forget what you've heard about I Hear Your Voice. Forget that synopsis!! Everyone should try this out. There's a reason why there was so much buzz around it. Go in with positive thoughts. It's a wonderful genre fusion. Don't worry about people calling it a fantasy. The mind reading aspect of Soo Ha is very realistic and so well done that it never hinders the story. (If you don't like fantasy.) The courtroom triumphs and struggles are amazing. Not only does it show the negative side of the law, but the positive. How laws that save a murderer can also be turned around and used to save the innocent. The acting here is a amazing! Not to mention how well the characters are realized and developed. Some might start out as stereotypes, but they quickly develop into actual people!! I Hear Your Voice will probably be cemented as a fan favorite . . . forever. I know it will always be one of mine. The message(s) is beautiful. The emotions are intense. But this is a dramas that despite the darkness, you will always feel warm and fuzzy. Best of all the ending is perfection. And yeah, I ended it feeling warm and fuzzy. Here's hoping this great team behind I Hear Your Voice will make more amazing shows.

Thank you. I know my review can't do this show justice.

As I'm sure anyone reading the reviews for this drama can tell, many people are incredibly passionate about I Hear Your Voice... and with very good reason. Not only is the story really unique and well written, but the actors (ALL of them) have done such an amazing job that you don't see the actor anymore, just the character.

Nearly every episode flows perfectly and most left me in denial that I read more had to wait a week for the next set. However, that's the genius of the writer and, to her, I give props. This is the third drama/movie of hers that I've watched and I loved them all.

I have to put an entire paragraph here on the acting. I expected to see good acting from many of the cast members, most are very respected and experienced. What surprised me the most was the acting ability of Lee Jong Suk. I've recently watched School 2013 and knew the kid had talent, but I never would have guessed he was this good. He made me laugh at his goofiness, smile when he was happy, and just cry my eyes out when he hurt. No matter how well written a story may be, if you don't get the right actors, it will never work. This choice, for this role, could not have been any better. As much as his acting ability left me breathless, he wasn't the only standout. Several episodes I had to give the best acting award to Jung Woong In, Yoon Sang Hyun and Lee Da Hee. Both very experienced actors that pulled even more out of their bag of tricks in this drama. The versatility of all the main and supporting cast was excellent. FYI, Jung Woong In was made for evil roles! That man can be downright scary as hell.

I can tell you I will be watching this again and not only for the feel good moments. Just like owning your favorite books to re-read over and over, I'll be enjoying this drama for years to come.

If you like mystery/thriller.... Balanced with a bickering romance and comedy.... The plot is amazing....

Great music as well.. You will enjoy it for sure, if you just focus watching it....
Recommended by jinja b
They are both Amazing Revenge drama, (Remember) is more melodramatic and sad story than (I Hear Your Voice) .
The both are oriented about law and wrongful murder case, with memory loss in them .
They both feature awesome Villain .
Both are good Drama worth watching

    I just finished it and I essentially watched in 1 sitting because I started Monday night, slept, watched up to ep17 on Tuesday, slept and watched the finale on Wednesday morning (today).

    I really loved it and I can see why it's rated so highly at MDL. I wasn't sure completely before watching it as it was labelled as a noona romance, I do like the genre in manga, anime and I think I've seen a few dramas depicting one such as I Remember You aka Hello Monster where the noona-ish romance, I don't know if it was made clear that the female detective was older than the main lead, she certainly is in real life much like in I Hear Your Voice but the pairing in "I Remember You" didn't seem to have that great chemistry compared to IHYV. Another thing why I thought was because the female lead in I Remember You wasn't as attractive as Lee Bo Young was in IHYV. However, the story for I Remember You and the other characters were brilliant.

    I really liked this show and that's why I gave it a 10/10 without hesitation.

    I don't know what to watch next now.

      FOR THE FOURTH TIME?!! Girl, how do you do it. I almost want to rewatch this just to see if perhaps I watched a different drama from everyone else because I could really barely make it past episode 6. I swear, I almost need to seek out someone who's critical of dramas so they can sit me down like a child and explain to me why everyone likes this.

    I want to start watching it but it looks like too much romance. People compare it to Liar Game and Cruel City which i liked both, but they were dark while this one looks light that doesnt focus on crime. So, question. Can i expect lots of suspense and thrill and what is the main focus of the show?

      I saw the overall message being something like, "Love conquers all," (kind of like Harry Potter). It doesn't necessarily focus entirely on romance love, although that is there. There was plenty of suspense and thrill, (coming from a big fan of the mystery and crime genre) and it is an excellent show with a satisfying ending (which is hard to say for a lot of popular Korean dramas). And if you liked watching this, seeing Lee Boyoung in her next drama God's Gift 14 Days also matched the mystery and crime genre well :)
