Couple stills from Do You Hear My Heart?

After giving us a peek at the poster shoot for Do You Hear My Heart?, the new MBC weekend drama, we have couple stills for the lead pair, played by Hwang Jung-eum and Kim Jae-won, the latter of whom is in his first role back from military service.

Let’s start with the obvious: Yes, that is a horrible haircut on Hwang Jung-eum, who is generally a very attractive woman who must have been saddled with that mushroom cap to make her character somehow more approachable, like that mythical girl-next-door. (Though, really? My neighbors have fabulous hair.) The bowl cut was unfortunate on Lee Young-ah in Baker King, and it’s just as unfortunate here. Except, it may even be worse for Hwang, because it also makes her look…oddly…like Kim Jae-won’s twin. Not his lover-to-be. And no, we’re not in one of THOSE dramas!

The two characters have interesting descriptions: He’s deaf but pretends he’s not, while she’s bright but pretends she’s dumb. (It’s for the sake of her father, who’s mentally handicapped and played by Jung Bo-seok.)

Namgoong Min (Birth of the Rich), on the other hand, plays a guy who ditches his poor, burdensome father and sister to pursue his own life. And that right there? Is why he will not get the girl.

Lee Kyu-han (Smile You, Que Sera Sera) is the immature, unemployed neighborhood friend to Hwang Jung-eum, but becomes her enemy when he’s the reason for losing the hard-earned cash her father has painstakingly saved. He’d never thought of her in a romantic sense until she rails at him in tears, and he has the wayward thought, “I want to take care of this woman.” Ha! And aw. It’s both aggravating and endearing.

I can see this drama tugging the heartstrings, but also buffering the teary moments with plenty of humor, as it comes from the writer of both Smile, You and Last Scandal of My Life. I may even commit to a 30-episode run if it turns out good… just as long as no extensions are involved! (I think Smile, You would’ve been much better had it stayed at 30.) Do You Hear My Heart? premieres April 2.

Could never take KJW seriously after the horrendous "100 Days with Mr. Arrogant", esp. due to the part where the ladies were drooling/fainting at KJW's character as he walked around the pool in his bathing trunk, despite having a build of a 12 year old, and a slighty chubby one at that.

The actress in the 1st shot kinda looks like a female version of Hyun Bin.

It doesn't help that Nam Goong-min looks eerily like Kim Jae-won. Are they triplets seperated at birth?

No, she's cute. She just needs more of a "pixie" cut so we can see her eyebrows.

I think it doesnt look THAT bad on her cause she pulled it off with her pretty face.

Besides, we all know a cheerful heroine needs to have short hair..the shorter the more optimistic, apparently.

I can see how someone with hearing could pretend to be deaf.

A deaf person who has mastered lip reading could pretend to hear when he is facing who is speaking, but, if they are behind him, or leave the room, or call on the phone, etc.

Look how long (short) Sam Dong took to be discovered.

So he texts a lot?

She looks cute with the bowl cut but I'm not really that fond of the bowl cut overall.

"It’s both aggravating and endearing."--> perfect for Lee Kyu han!

I read 'writer of Smile, You' and I think 'Hell yeah'. That's the only drama, I've ever (half) rewatched. Lovely~

The bowl cut look really looks like a bowl =O and in that second pic it looks like a wig.

I think the haircut looks good on her. Although I don't have an idea how pretty she was before they chopped almost all of ther hair off.

Sadly, I can't say the same for the girl in Baker King. She looked so bad that I had a hard time taking her seriously throughout the drama. Lols!

Finally, I can look forward to a project by KJW. The guy hasn't aged a bit. He's just as cute as ever.

Hmm...I'm not in 49 days yet but this one might DL the first ep, like the premise deaf vs clever/stupid, may commit even if 30 eps. I found sometime longer run drama give you a better thorough storyline. Let's see.

First drama after DH that I want to see from ep1^^

I'm deaf and yes, I did pass myself off as hearing or hard of hearing before I got a cochlear implant. I'm an excellent lipreader and my friends often used me to "spy" on other people like conversations at restaurants, sports, and etc.

I've had people get very angry at me when they call out my name or yell "Hey, lady! I'm talkin' to you!" behind me so they run up to me and cuss me out for "ignoring" them. I often responded with a bored look, an insolent shrug of my shoulders, and a "So what?!" before walking away because I was too embarrassed to tell them that I'm deaf.

I'll be watching this drama with more of a personal perspective because I tend to be very critical of hearing actors playing deaf characters.

I was actually not interested in this drama because Hwang Jung-eums character seemed off putting. I can't explain it without complaining about Gloria, so I'll rest my case until I see the first episode.

I'll be looking forward to your comments. Have you ever watched any Japanese dramas? There's a couple with deaf characters.

Also Jung Bo-seok...the "father in law" who didn't want her (Giant) is now playing her dad.. ha, ha, ha.

I watched one of the Japanese drama called "Orange Days" and that one was pretty cool because I learned to play the piano before I lost all of my hearing which was very similar to the deaf character in Orange Days and I sympathized with her and her frustration in dealing with that loss.

Since I got my cochlear implant, I've been playing the piano nonstop and am starting to talk on the phone again. It doesn't happen overnight like most people think and takes time and therapy to adjust to the world of sounds.

It'll be awfully interesting to see how that deaf character develops and I hope that they don't make it so one dimensional like kdramas tend to do with characters with disabilities.

Just my opinion.

I was actually going to ask if you saw Orange Days! I liked that Sae was her own person (and at times was kind of bitchy). I'd stay away from Hoshi no Kinka, but then again that show is so old you probably have no idea what I'm talking about.

Yes, I definitely don't want to see a one-dimensional character either, especially since this is a plot point...I guess... for a 30 episode show. D:

Wow! When i usually watch jdramas, I ask people if they've seen Orange Days and about 90% of the time no one's even heard of it. One of the best japanese dramas period. Loved all the characters and relationships.

Kudos to you!

I was actually aware of "Hoshi no Kinka" and watched it. It was so-so and some scenes were very cringe-worthy. "Orange Days" was a delight just like "Children of A Lesser God."

Now, I've used "I was actually.." in my post too so I'm just as bad as you so don't you worry about it.

Here's to 30 episodes of fleshing out the naunces and quirks of the deaf character without making him pathetic or stupid because if that doesn't happen, I'm going to be very, very cranky.

Cranky me is not good.

Another Orange Days super fan here :) It is one of my favorite jdramas, along with Nobuta Wo Produce.

Ooh, I like all of the males on board! Pretty good-looking cast. I like the story as well, it'll be interesting to see Kim Jae-won acting "deaf".

I absolutely fell in love with her in GAINT as while as the entire cast...I will differently follow her careers she a great Newbie has the potential to be a A Lister with TALENT not just looks....The hair style probably would have bother me if I didn't see her before with a different style. I know how beautiful she is so I will watch her with rose cover glasses. I just hope her wardrobe isn't ugly because no matter what glasses I'm wearing it going to be hard to see.

Not feeling it from the stills - I'm not feeling any chemistry/attraction at all, but I think it might be lighting/styling issues. I'll keep my fingers crossed, as I do like the writer.
