Waking to Yeon Woo-jin’s switchblade and song in Let Me Hear Your Song

Compared to the cutesy first teaser, the second one for Let Me Hear Your Song is drastically more spooky. Advertised as a rom-com mystery-thriller, this drama is about a timpanist who loses her memory after the day a murder occurred. She meets a tone-deaf man, and together they begin investigating the circumstances of the crime to recover the truth behind her lost memory.

In the teaser, Kim Se-jung (School 2017) is lost within the grips of a terrifying nightmare. It’s filled with glimpses of her lost memory—a forgotten shoe, a girl in a hospital bed, and staring at a bright light. She wakes up in a cold sweat to the ringing of her cell phone. On the other line, Yeon Woo-jin (Priest, Seven Day Queen) opens up a razor-sharp switchblade, and asks her if she wants to hear his song.

Kim Se-jung is the timpanist who is afflicted with amnesia/insomnia, and Yeon Woo-jin is the man who ends up helping her sleep in the evenings. Other cast members include Song Jae-rim (Secret Mother) who plays the quirky conductor, and Park Ji-yeon (Triangle) who plays the haughty violinist.

To be honest, I’m not sure which ambiance this drama is going for, but Yeon Woo-jin is one of those actors who can play ambitious-evil or dorky-good really well, so I’m excited either way.

KBS Monday-Tuesday drama Let Me Hear Your Song will begin airing on August 5.

Wait. So is the switchblade man her leading man? Like our main lead? I'm confused.

Yup. No one knows why he has the switchblade but he is the main lead.

@cozybooks,
As long as LET ME HEAR YOUR SONG doesn't turn into TRAP. I had to bail on that one.

So is the tympanist going to become involved in a love triangle?! Heh heh heh.

I didn't watch Trap! Was it good? Terrible ending? He is Psychometric style? Kill It style? Thousand Millions Stars From the Sky style? Why are there so many sad kdramas lately??!

Lolololol love triangle. You speak my language. ^^

@cozybooks,
I bailed from TRAP because it was becoming too violent and dark for me -- although I recall that other viewers got a kick out of it. I was watching ITEM at the same time, and had to pull the plug on that one, too, when the plot started to go south. I wasn't that keen on the female lead after enduring her in GRAND PRINCE, plus Kim Kang-woo's villain was just plain psycho. I love Ju Ji-hoon, but couldn't inflict that much nonsense on myself.

You may be onto something re: dramas with sad endings. I did watch KILL IT, but ended up feeling that it missed the boat in many ways. Still, I stuck around for Jang Ki-yong til the bitter end, after having live-watched him in the bleak COME HERE AND HUG ME.

I watched THOUSAND MILLION STARS FROM THE SKY, and that was another downer that had some infuriatingly dumb aspects. Seo In-guk did a great job, so I don't entirely regret watching it.

In an effort to offset all that darkness, I've live-watched ANGEL'S LAST MISSION: LOVE and MY ABSOLUTE BOYFRIEND. There was some sweetness and light, but both of them had plots that were frustrating and failed to live up to their potential, especially where logic was involved.

HER PRIVATE LIFE was somewhat better, mainly because I needed an antidote to Kim Jae-wook's magnificently malevolent turn in VOICE, and his powerhouse performance as an exorcist in GUEST. The latter also features Kim Dong-wook's gripping role as a psychic helping to pursue the malevolent spirit Park Il-do -- with the assistance of ajusshi fortuneteller Lee Won-jong, and lady detective Jung Eun-chae. They comprised a memorable team.

This drama is going to be like a box of chocolate, you’ll never know what you’re going to get.
Watch it become a melodrama at the end. Or it’ll exceed my expectations and become a fantasy. That’ll definitely keep me watching.

Thanks for the upcoming drama news, @tineybeanie!

As long as there are no exorcisms. I've exceeded my quota of exorcisms for the next 3 years. ;-)

@niall Niall Craig,
Yeon Woo-jin is one of my faves, too. He caught my eye in ARANG AND THE MAGISTRATE in a role that might mislead one into thinking that he wasn't a very good actor -- until the reveal. Wham! Right between the eyes.

I started out as a sageuk fan, and it's still my preferred genre. I loved YWJ in SEVEN DAY QUEEN, which had one of the most heartbreakingly gorgeous finales I've ever seen. I knew from history that it was going to shred me, but it did so in a beautiful way. With memorable, compelling performances by Park Min-young in the title role, and Lee Dong-gun as hyung Yeonsangun.

Totally agree with you! 7 Day Queen, Lee Pan/Sa Pan (Judge vs. Judge), these are the 2 I watched and I fell in love with his side-eye expressions and steady gaze. He is my absolute favorite!!

Amnesia + tone deafness. Now all we need is face-blindness and we can have "see no evil, hear no evil, remember no evil".

@lordcobol,
LOL! I guess we can't have "speak no evil" because then the party in question wouldn't be able to sing either. Unless Writer-nim is going to temporarily afflict him with a tracheotomy. -- What are the odds of his also having absolutely no sense of rhythm and terrible taste in fashion, but the ability to see smells?

The plot is confusing me so at this point I'm just here for Sejeong, Yeon Woo-jin, and Song Jae-rim. Please be good show.

Yoo hoo, Real Mrs. Song Jae-rim... Mark thy calendar for August 5! Show has been pushed back from July 29. AsianWiki has it listed as I WANNA HEAR YOUR SONG. ;-)

@sensationalfantasy liar song,
I hope SJR's role is a good one, too. I enjoyed his turn as the shrink in CLEAN WITH PASSION FOR NOW, which had some delightfully loopy bromantic interludes with Yoon Kyun-sang.

I started to like him in The Moon That Embraces The Sun, adored him in Clean With Passion For Now, and I am only watching Surplus Princess now and he is so amazing there!

I read the AsianWiki title with the melody of The Beatles' I WANNA HOLD YOUR HAND.

I don't think I can handle "rom-com mystery thrillers". I was scared stiff of Namgoong Min in THE GIRL WHO SEES SMELLS and was afraid he'd pop up and ruin the rom-com moments. I'd watch it for the music (if they play any, c'mon show, they're in an orchestra!) but this trailer is positively creepy.

@wishfultoki,

I didn't see your comment when I replied to LordC. I love Namgoong Min, but don't think I could handle being scared stiff through the whole show. I'm such a wuss. ;-)

I'm a bigger wimp when it comes to crime... I was young and naive when I watched GWSM and had no idea there would be a killer. I've avoided thrillers ever since. But seriously, Namgoon Min gives a great performance.

I really hope they do a lot of orchestral/piano music. As a singer, sometimes I get so distracted with the vocal music.
The creepy feel is making this more appealing.

As soon as I saw "tympanist," all I could think of was the Bonzo Dog Band's classic "The Intro and the Outro" -- with John Wayne on xylophone... Adolf Hitler on vibes... Roy Rogers on Trigger... and the Count Basie Orchestra on triangle.

Ok, so the switchblade situation was kind of unexpected.

But so is the part about only being able to fall asleep if you hear a song from a tone-deaf person, which apparently is supposed to happen in this show.

I'm ready for anything with this drama at this point.
