I Hear Your Voice ep 9: Dramatic Review
This episode was crazy! Talk about intense and being on the edge of your seat!
So, this week being Independence Day, the family and I went up north to pine country with some friends to escape the brutal summer heat. We had a great time and I even managed to watch at least this episode while hanging in the hotel room late that night. Boy oh boy, was The Husband ever annoyed though! I kept screaming and freaking out at the most intense moments. At one point I tossed down the iPad and had to look away. He hates when I do that. Too bad. It's what makes drama watching fun, so ppbbblllltttt! -- I'll scream if I want to. ;)
Anyway, sorry this is a bit later than normal. I actually tried doing a review while on vacation. I tried something new and different - a video review since I couldn't type it out without the computer. Yeah....that didn't go so well. First, it was over 17 minutes long. And sounded painfully awkward. I am so totally not an on-camera kind of gal. You'll just have to take my word for it. I tried. I even tried to do another format while sitting poolside, but that also flopped. Instead, I had to wait until returning home. Maybe someday I'll get the whole video thing figured out because I don't know about you, but I'd love to have a mixed media format. What do you think? You're opinions matter the most. Read it, watch it or a mix of both? Leave any opinions in the comment section if you so desire because I really am curious to know your feedback.
All that aside for now, let's chat drama!

1. Forward and Back and Around We Go
2. The Verdict and the Fallout
Right after the trial ends, Attorney Cha finally gets the records from the murder trial 10 years ago and is shocked to learn of the threats and violent attack made by Psycho against Hye Sung. May I just ask the obvious question here? WHY IN THE BLUE BLAZES DID THIS NOT COME UP IN THE TRIAL??????? Sure, Attorney Cha may not have had the information, but why not have the prosecutor bring it up? They were desperate enough that they tried to get the former cell mate to lie - why not tell the court the truth of what really happened that day 10 years ago???? Why is it never mentioned??? He threatened to kill her in the courtroom while physically attacking her in front of tons of witnesses. Seems like more of a legit argument then something supposedly told to a cell mate while in prison. I suppose it's just one of those things we have to learn to let go of, but seriously....! SMH
We have two "bombs" that go off here. One is figurative and I'll just mention it briefly because it will most certainly become important later on. There is some bad blood between the Prosecutor's father and the former cell mate of Psycho. What we know is that Do Yun's dad is the one responsible for putting this man in jail and he gets all angry when Seo Dae Suk's name is mentioned. Furthermore, when Do Yun mentions the name of the cellmate/witness, he suddenly changes his tune and emphatically tells her to stay away from it and leave it alone. Hmmm...bad blood, yes? Yes. I'm sure there's more to come on that front.
4. The Fight
5. Where Are They Now?
Not long after Soo Ha disappears, a severed hand appears floating up out of the water. It belongs to Min Joon Gook and he is assumed dead, and Soo Ha is the suspect. Soo Ha is now a wanted man for the murder of Min Joon Gook. Now, let me just go on record as saying that I for one do not buy for one moment that Joon Gook is dead. Neither do I believe Soo Ha to be responsible for the dismemberment. Why? Well, for one, that would be too easy and we're just barely past the halfway mark of this drama. And secondly, I don't believe it because Hye Sung doesn't believe it. We finally get to learn what Soo Ha had whispered to her before he took off. He promised her that he wouldn't do what she was afraid of him doing and that she should trust him. I think that Hye Sung getting caught in the crossfire (or rather, cross blade in this case I suppose) was a huge shock to him and cured him of any desire to go against her wish that he not kill Joon Gook. She obviously meant business if she was willing to step in front of the knife in order to keep him from becoming a murderer. So yeah, I don't believe he killed Psycho and I'm glad I'm not alone. My theory at this point is that Joon Gook cut his own hand off in order to frame Soo Ha because he's a freaky, creeptastic psycho through-and-through.
6. *Sigh* My Least Favorite Drama Plot Device
Wowzers. Wasn't that a crazy episode? Intense and emotional. And needed a longer-than-normal review. I'm just excited that I can now finally watch episode 10. I've been dying! The suspense! Ack! Don't tell me what happens yet, but do come back once I have seen it and let's chat!
Until then, have a wonderful day and we'll see you soon!
