GREAT ENDING!

I’ve never been pleased more with the ending of a korean drama. I Hear Your Voice is one of the few dramas that has been blessed with good writing. The episodes consistently stayed entertaining and exciting. I can’t tell you how many dramas I have watched that started out being amazing but after episode 8 it all went downhill *cough* Cheese In The Trap *cough*. The love story between the two main leads was amazingly well done. I remember desperately wishing to find a guy who loves me as much as the male lead loved the female lead.

EVERYTHING ABOUT THIS DRAMA WAS PERFECT.

The characters were unique. I even ended up feeling pity for the bad guy who I used to despise when I started watching. I wasn’t expecting much from a mind-reading guy who tries to win over his One True Love for 18 episodes but lOOK AT ME NOW LOVING EVERY GODDAMN THING ABOUT THIS DRAMA.

Oh, and I think it’s also worth mentioning what a great job the writers did when it came to building up different relationships and destroying your heart in every possible way (ノ◕ヮ◕)ノ*:・゚✧

If you’re a romantic like me, then this drama is definitely for you (even if you are not a romance fan, you will be… trust me!!).

WHAT A DISAPPOINTMENT.

I feel like the producers of this drama all sat down and one of them said “Okay, to get the most money out of this drama, let’s choose some idols everyone loves, eye-candy actors and a basic predictable plot to draw in young viewers!” and everyone else nodded in agreement.

God, honestly, The Heirs had so much more potential. Great example for bad writing and horrible choices. Yes, the cast was great, don’t get me wrong! I loved the actors and actresses but cliché characters and little to no character development or whatsoever basically ruined it for me as well as the plot.

I hate love-triangles because I always end up suffering from what people call “Second-Male-Lead-Syndrome”. This drama wasn’t an exception. Everything was just incredibly frustrating and annoying and don’t even get me started on the always occuring family drama. Ridiculous.

A round of applause for the cliff-hangers at the end of each episode which kept me going! I kind of always ended up wanting to know how everything will turn out which is why I gave this drama 3 Stars for keeping my attention. Usually I would’ve stopped torturing myself around episode 5.

The ending was also extremely unsatisfying and abrupt. I won’t go into detail though, since I don’t want to ruin it for anyone (if I haven’t already haha). If you enjoy being frustrated and/or are a hardcore fan of one of the actors, go ahead and watch this drama. If you’re not, don’t waste your time.
