Zoom into characters: Soo Ha is a high school boy who searches high and low for Hye Sung who he wants to protect and finally finds her. However, she is not what he thinks she is. She has become a sloppy, petty and irresponsible public defender and defend the defendants for the sake of defending them. Hye Sung does not believe in the defendants and only work with evidence. Soo Ha who can read the defendants’ mind helps her change and win cases. Hye Sung becomes dependent on Soo Ha until Soo Ha gets into trouble and she has to stand up on her own feet to prove Soo Ha’s innocence. Do Yeon is a prosecutor who is Hye Sung’s friend+enemy and is actually adopted into a rich family after her adoptive father made a grave mistake as the judge for her father’s case. Although once a police officer, Kwan Woo makes a capable and enthusiastic public defender who believes completely in the defendants and has to learn a painful lesson when his defendant, Joon Gook, (after killing Hye Sung’s mother) lied to him which led to his acquittal.

Is there justice? Even if your family is the evil, will you defend them or fight for justice? If you are interested in law and cases, you can try this drama. Became a fan of Lee Dong Wook after watching this drama. Haha. Not only is it about law and justice, it includes a twist when Tae Jo’s lawyer family is involved in preventing the real criminals from being punished for deadly contamination of water. This case leads to the death of Eun Ho’s husband (Tae Jo’s friend as well) and many others. While Tae Jo knows that his family is in the wrong, he experiences the power struggle, helplessness, sorrow and even dilemma. On the other hand, it is not easy for Eun Ho to bring up a son as a single parent. Her goal to become a lawyer leads her to becoming Tae Jo’s assistant and eventually partner in upholding justice.

Korean Drama Review IHYV

I hear your voice (2013) 听见你的声音

Genre: Romance, Fantasy, Comedy, Thriller, Crime, Mystery

Enjoyment: 10/10  Pace: 10/10  No. of times I watched it: 2

starring Lee Jong Suk as Park Soo Ha and Lee Bo Young as Jang Hye Sung.
Kim So Hyun as Jang Hye Sung (young)
Goo Seung Hyun as Soo Ha (child)
Yoon Sang Hyun as Cha Kwan Woo
Lee Da Hee as Seo Do Yeon
Jung Min Ah as Do Yeon (young)
Jung Woong In as Min Joon Gook

Plot: Park Soo Ha played by Lee Jongsuk is a character to look forward to. He can read people’s mind due to a car accident which is useful at the same time cruel to him. Some treats him as a monster. To make things worse, the murderer actually uses Soo Ha’s ability to his advantage and is constantly finding chance to hurt them after he is released from jail. As Hye Sung bravely stood up as a witness when he was young and helped catch the murderer of Soo Ha’s father, Soo Ha is grateful and promised her that he will protect her from the killer when he is released from jail in the future. He will help Hye Sung become a good public defender and has an overly enthusiastic public defender, Kwan Woo, as a love rival.

A lawyer/public defender should not trust a defendant completely (what Kwan Woo did), yet cannot assume what the defendant said is a lie due to evidence just aiming to make the sentence lighter (what Hye Sung did). People will leave a person who did bad things yet do not repent (Do Yeon’s adoptive father). Once a person murders someone, even if the person is the victim, he will turn into a murderer. It is not worth having a crime record for revenge. I would not want to hear people’s thoughts. Ignorance is indeed a blessing at times. Thoughts may not be always good and may be unintentional when one is angry. It would be bad if people are hurt by these unintentional thoughts. The evil guy, Joon Gook, in this drama keeps it going too. While he tries to harm them many times to seek revenge, their relationship improves. I feel a bit sorry for the evil guy as he lost his mother, wife and child. However, he should have treasured his remaining loved ones when he can and not let hatred blind his eyes
