Sign was a drama that I watched a while ago and I just finished re-watching it.

I absolutely adore this drama because it goes over darker subjects such as disability, death, and family problems. It really shows you how hard reality can be and I wish it had more episodes. The saying "short and sweet" isn't what I would use to describe this drama because it is by no means "sweet" in terms of gumdrops and rainbows after a storm. You will cry and even though problems are solved you may still not be completely satisfied.

The acting overall is okay but this drama was filmed with a lot of newbie actors so I was able to tolerate it and actually warmed up to almost all of them. The music was extremely repetitive for a music/dance drama and it almost made me drop the drama but don't let that discourage you from watching it.

I do still re-watch my favorite parts every now and then because the fact that the main character is deaf really intrigued me, I wish more dramas could expand on the idea of disability for the main characters. The trouble and difficulties he faced being deaf, overcoming those difficulties and finding joy in something he can do even if he is deaf.

This drama is extremely short and is a perfect filler drama if you have to wait for an episode for a "currently airing" drama to come out. I'm happy I watched this because it was something I happened to stumble upon and something I happen to really enjoy. It was a great surprise and you won't regret watching it. Thanks and enjoy!!

The reason I wanted to watch this was because the premise seemed very interesting since it wasn't mainly about love. Up until episode 6, if you asked me I would have said it was really good and exceeded expectations, but after that it went downhill. This drama touches on some dark themes, I liked how they dealt with one of those themes, disability, but everything else was very mish mash and I feel they could have done way better. It was not satisfying in the end and it strayed off the path I wish it would have gone on until the end. I'd still say you should try and watch it if you're interested, but don't expect to be satisfied. Even though I like the friendship and acceptance parts in the first half, the messy second half erased the significance of them. Overall, an okay drama. It's short so regardless of whether you loved it or not in the end, you won't have wasted much time.
