Drama Review: I Hear Your Voice

A young girl is a witness to a brutal murder and helps convict the criminal in court. The son of the murder victim is forever grateful to this girl. He uses his supernatural power of being able to read people's thoughts to help this girl who is now a public defense attorney. During this time, the murderer is released from prison and is out for revenge.

I don't know any of the actors in this drama - and wasn't really interested in it until I was told it was the #1 drama in Korea at this time. It's receiving over 20% viewer rating. I agree with the people, this is a surprisingly good drama and worth the watch.

Drama Review: Runaway

Rain before going to the army and before he started dating Kim Tae Hee. How he ended up landing Kim Tae Hee is beyond me - and i'm jealous. That's an entirely different topic though. In this drama he is actually charismatic and plays his role very well.

The story is about a private detective that is hired to find the man that killed the heroine's family. Rain plays the private detective and Lee Na Young plays the traumatized victim. There are lots of plot twists and turns in this drama - but it feels very overdone. Many of the scenes were predictable and the dialogue between the characters starting after episode 10 starts to put you to sleep. The action and fighting sequences were done well during the first 3 episodes - then it kinda gets boring. Boring in the sense that it's the same guy chasing Rain down a street.

I would recommend watching at least the first 3 episodes because they are jammed packed with expensive action scenes and explosions. I'm not a big Rain fan, but did come across this drama because Lee Na Young is dating Won Bin.. I didn't know who she was so I googled her and this drama popped up and sparked my curiosity.

Drama Review: Love Rain

Oh Yoona.. so pretty. I have to rank her in the top 10 natural beauties in Korea. From all the pictures I've seen of her - there is no evidence that she had any plastic surgery done to her face. Didn't she originally debut as a child actress? My memory deceives me, and I can't be sure.

Love Rain is a story about young love. There are typical Korean drama: triangle love connections, parents objecting to their kids relationships, someone gets sick, and of course break up and make up. The setting in episode 1 is in Korea during the 1960's and Yoona and her friends are College students. Guy falls in love, girl falls in love, friend falls in love with the same girl, and the girl gets sick. That's just the beginning - as the story progresses into the future. What happens after? Go check it out. It's only 20 hours of your life. And about 15 of those hours you get to see Yoona. Oh, and there is lots of kissing... haha. :)
