Jang Hye Sung is actually Soo Ha’s first love after she gave a decisive testimony on his father’s murder case 10 years ago and Soo Ha promised to protect her from the killer’s threats.
Until now, I still can’t move-on. The first up to the last episode got me hooked. I like how it started with not-so gentle story line. Actually, its quite heart breaking. The storyline is captivating and thrilling. I would say it was nothing typical about this drama. Each episode is full of twist and turn.
The beginning of the drama was exciting as the past was revealed little by little. The only question you are left with is “Why did Min Joon Gook killed Su-ha’s father?
The first episode served as an introduction to what kind of characters they are.
»Everyone fits their role perfectly.
❝ All this time your mouth has been telling lies, but your eyes have been telling the truth. Your eyes were telling words that I have longed to hear for 11 years. But, in order to protect you, I need to pretend that I don’t hear those words. ❞
❝ Telling the truth is always painful. That’s why, sometimes, I close my eyes in front of the truth. ❞
– Park Soo Ha, I Hear Your Voice
Park Soo Ha, his world is noisier than other people. Why? Because this 19 year old boy an hear two different sounds. Aside from the sounds that everybody can hear, he also can hear the sounds that people can’t hear, thoughts. Park Soo Ha is definitely my favorite of all. I have fallen in love with his character or should I say I love him for real? He’s such a cutie! I didn’t know he was that a good actor. Ommona! Lee Jong Suk! Who wouldn’t fall for him?
There’s only one woman in his heart who is linked to his painful past. 10 years ago, one girl helped him to find out the person who murdered his father. That girl who bravely testified in the court, stole his heart. He swore that he would protect and guard her if he can meet her again.10 years later, he meets that girl again but that girl has changed. The love story and the love lines are perfect for their roles.
The still-figuring-it-out public defender, Jang Hye Sung is in her late 20’s. Smart, confident and sassy. She learned it from her mom between mother and daughter’s affection. She’s growing in front of viewers eyes from her first step as a public defender to her actions in the face of a murder trial.
Every character has a unique identity. Min Joon Gook, ‘The Bad Guy’ who I hated at first from the inner of my heart and soul. His confession was a bit touching for me but of course I still hated him. (hahaha)
Aside from the main cast, I also admire Seo Do Yeon .I can see that she has a good heart. Actually I knew it before also when she said she regretted not testifying against Min Jong Gook 10 years ago.
Seo Do Yeon and Jang Hye Sung’s relationship as frenemies was good to watch. It is not the typical story which revolve on the same guy or any romance related story.
When she found out that his dad’s mistake 26 years ago wherein he puts an innocent man to jail, she was flustered. Worse that the innocent man was her biological father. I was teary eyed when she openly accepted her father.
It is true, it takes so much courage to admit one’s mistake.
“Isn’t it lonely to say you’re right when you know you’re not?
Just because you say its right, doesn’t make it right.
And doing so won’t change it either.
Knowing that you’re wrong yet still insisting that you’re not, that’s self abuse-
Living like that, one becomes alone without anyone being on your side.”
Cha Gwan Woo. He’s a total freak. He looks dumb crazy with her nerdy glasses but how he has so much trust with his defendants is amazing. He’s an ideal lawyer for me. The one who firmly believes in his clients.
Who would ever forget Hye Sung’s mom? Her scenes really breaks my heart.
“An eye for an eye, a tooth for a tooth—if we lived by that law, then all the people in the world would be blind.”
“Promise me—that you won’t waste your life on hating other people.”
“She won’t live that way. I didn’t raise her to be like you.”
Simply, a mother’s love.
