DRAMA CLUB: I Hear Your Voice Episodes 17-18 (3/4)
Drama club fans, the popular drama, “I Hear Your Voice,” is finished! First of all, I want to express that it has been a pleasure posting weekly reviews for Dramafever. I would like to give special thanks to Aileen at Dramafever for her support and also to my awesome partners, Jhon and June for a successful collaboration. I had a lot of fun and I gained a lot of experience as a writer. Please check out our special Q&A remarks coming soon for our last post.
While June’s review was enthusiastic, and Jhon analyzed the story and characters nicely, I was disappointed with the last two episodes of the drama. I assume you already watched the ending and if you didn’t, what are you waiting for? There’s a Dramafever marathon alert on this drama right now. Now, I don’t want to end on a sour note, but I expected more from the ending.
Episode 17 felt like a filler episode to me. Recapping the day from another perspective didn’t add to the storyline and I was upset that Soo Ha bought a present for Hye Sung using money that he didn’t earn himself.
Min Joon Gook (Jung Woong In) spent two episodes plotting on how he was going bring Jang Hye Sung (Lee Bo Young) and Park Soo Ha (Lee Jong Suk) down with him, but his plan was so sloppy. Joon Gook started off well, pulling Hye Sung into his trap, but he created a disadvantageous situation with Park Soo Ha. First of all, Joon Gook is definitely capable of being a killer, but he basically had little desire to kill either Park Soo Ha or Jang Hye Sung. What’s the point? I’m not convinced of the idea that Joon Gook turns Soo Ha into the second Joon Gook. Why does Joon Gook want to impress Soo Ha so much? Ever since their fuzzy meeting at the fishing spot in Yeonju, I was already suspicious of Joon Gook’s intentions. He obviously knew where Soo Ha was after Soo Ha’s car accident, but doesn’t kill Soo Ha and spends a whole year watching Soo Ha live a clueless life before taking action. I thought he had a good plan up his sleeve.
In the end, there is nothing to stop Soo Ha from calling the police. How would Joon Gook know anyway? He doesn’t have the technology to know who Soo Ha called. I’m amused that the police set up an inflatable air cushion, which probably created a lot of noise, and Joon Gook didn’t even notice. They knew exactly where Joon Gook would jump off too. Min Joon Gook was foolish until the end by trying to die with Park Soo Ha. Why is he so obsessed with Park Soo Ha when his original intent was to kill Hye Sung? At least Joon Gook is willing to be a better person in the end and admit his crimes.
I thought that Soo Ha lost his mind-reading ability when he fell on the air mattress, because his head was bleeding. I’m upset that Cha Kwan Woo (Yoon Sang Hyun) never knew about Soo Ha’s ability. It always puts Kwan Woo at a disadvantage.
The plot line of indicting Soo Ha for stabbing Hye Sung was really unnecessary in my opinion, but only serves as an excuse for Kwan Woo to meet Seo Do Yeon (Lee Da Hee). I hoped that Kwan Woo would start liking Do Yeon, but Kwan Woo’s handshake with Hye Sung made me think otherwise. I hope that Kwan Woo finds a girlfriend fast because he’s too good for Hye Sung.
Soo Ha’s reaction on the way to the hospital was so exaggerated. I understand that he is upset but he went overboard when he thought Hye Sung died. I thought he was the incredible Hulk when he barged into the hospital.
Since episode 11, we understand that Hye Sung had fallen in love with Soo Ha, yet there are still hints of uncertainty. Even the ending to the “What’s Up Fox” drama on Dramafever didn't make me doubt myself about the main couple’s noona-dongsaeng romance. I think the writer was aiming toward an open ending, but that annoys me because it toys with my emotions. Since Soo Ha is so confident, maybe the relationship will work out as long as he is beside Hye Sung, though I still think of him as a kid and not a man even though he is wiser now.
Go Sung Bin tried to pursue Soo Ha up until the official rejection. I respect her for taking charge of her emotions. I’m disappointed that Choong Ki never made any real moves on her though, creating another open ending.
Ultimately, I watched how Hye Sung fell in love with Kwan Woo, but I felt awkward watching Hye Sung already fallen for Soo Ha. I love the cast, the funny scenes, and the never-ending cameos. Yoon Sang Hyun and Lee Da Hee impressed me with their roles in this drama and I am officially their fan! Negativity aside, this is still a show worthy to watch because it was so entertaining. When I re-watch previous episodes, I notice more and more about how the story connects like when Hye Sung wrote notes on her hand just like her mother did when her mother burned Seo Dae Suk’s books and told him off.
At least we have a somewhat happy ending, right? I didn’t even mention Do Yeon’s sad father problems.
Once again, I had a lot of fun in the Drama Club. My name is Powerz and thank you for reading our reviews. If you want to follow my Dramafever adventures, I’ll be reviewing the drama, “Good Doctor,” starring Joo Won as a genius, autistic savant doctor and Moon Chae Won as a pediatric surgeon for the DramaFever Drama Club next.
