Bong Woo-Ri (Kim Sae-Ron/Hwang Jung-Eum) was a bright 9-year-old girl, but she didn't have a name or a father. Her mother was also deaf. Nevertheless, there were good people around her like Bong Young-Gyu (Jung Bo-Suk) - a man who loved her mother and was also mentally deficient. The Young-Gyu lived with his elderly mother and his son Bong Ma-Roo (later played by Nam Gung-Min).

Bong Ma-Roo was an honor student who was insecure about his foul-mouthed grandmother and his mentally deficient father. To make matters worse, his father married a woman who was deaf. Meanwhile, 9-year-old Bong Woo-Ri was elated that she finally had a family and a name. Tragedy soon struck when a fire occurred in a factory where their deaf mother worked. Their mother died in the fire and their father was taken into police custody because of a frame-up . Ma-Roo left his sister and said he would come back. Now, Bong Woo-Ri, her grandmother and father awaited his return.

Meanwhile, Dong-Joo (Kang Chan-Hee/Kim Jae-Won) lived with his grandfather, mother and stepfather. His grandfather owned the company "Yoo-Kyung," but the company was run by the step-father due to the grandfather's bad health. By chance, Dong-Joo met Woo-Ri. He promised to teach her how to play the piano. To keep his promise, Dong-Joo attempted to sneak out at night once. During this time, he saw his step-father allow his grandfather to die. An accident then occurred that resulted in Dong-Joo permanently losing his hearing. At the funeral for his grandfather, Dong-Joo's mother learned that her husband cheated on her and even fathered another child. Dong-Joo's mother also learned that the other child was Bong Ma-Roo. The mother then hid Dong-Joo's loss of hearing and took him to live overseas. For revenge, Dong-Joo's mother also took Bong Ma-Roo with them. While living overseas, Bong Ma-Roo changed his name to Jang Joon-Ha. Dong-Joo also learned how to read lips and, because of this, could act as someone with normal hearing. Everything was set. The three of them returned to South Korea and Dong-Joo now attempts to return the company to his mother and exact revenge upon his stepfather ....

Aj It's okay, but predictable. Having seen so many KDramas and Korean films, I'm more demanding than this one rises to.

Max P A rather silly drama, a love drama turn into typical corporate family fight, a love is lost in the story. the love between dong and woo is lost as woo cannot stand by dong when joon is involved, hence dong fights the battle along. this is sad story, loss of trust and loss of stand by me. this contradict the drama, can you hear my heart not in sense of love, but yelling at woo can you not hear my heart crying for you, but you cannot hear you stupid woo haha woo is this drama is annoying, she is the one that makes joon worst, as a man has to fight for a love one.

Joanna Does anyone know which episode Bong Woo Ri burns her hand in?

Irene Really good heart warming drama <33

Cindy I don't know why but for a moment I thought that was Yonghwa O_O

briget It a nice romantic movie,this movie make me cry a lot,and it end happly kim jae won,oppa good work,sarayam

debi this drama so great ,really love it.but i think its a romance between dong joo and jun ha..really gay..but they i love it lol... But the drama really amazing and fascinating, I suggest everyone to see.

Victoria R Gadiano What is with Bong Uri and her backpack?

Nina I absolutely LOVED this drama. Amazing cast, and story line; I cried a couple times, just sooo good. Great job!

el MaRoo Oppa, I LOve You... He's also my favorite actor after seeing this Drama :D I Love Your Acting and Character Maroo oppa :D

Cindy Talenta Cha Dong Favorite Actor....:)

Cindy Talenta Cha Dong Joo....You verry handsome.I Like It.Very like it...

meme1 LOVE IT (so far at least, I don't know if I will dislike it when I continue watching) WISH ME LUCK!!! i'm up to episode 6

lisa111 im up to episode 4 right now, I know, I'm just a newbie, BUT I LOVE IT (so far at least) I have to say that the child actors really resemble their older selves in the drama! And honestly.......I love the drama how it is now. I DONT want romance!!! (don't get me wrong, I like romance) but I just don't want any hard-core romance in this, maybe just some soft and unimportant romance will do for me. WELL, GOING ONTO EPISODE 5 (wish me luck)

Jglosfjdskl Dude this is probably one of the best dramas I've seen in a while and Kim Jae Won is freaking gorgeous. I love all the bromance in this drama too. This drama made me cry so much and I literally couldn't even feel it coming like... tears just came out. I recommend everyone to watch this drama! & This drama is not boring at the person who said so... it just depends on everyone's preference but if you're a type of person who likes love triangle like relations and bromance a lot you should really watch this one... ~ Pretty happy ending as well :)

Gyinaaa This drama touched my heart. I rl like this drama.ts my favorite it was so funny Woo ri 9years old with no name how she speak faster I like Cha doong joo the most.

samieEXO don't listen to Kate, its a great drama i watched from episode 1 to 30 and i enjoyed every minute of it.

Gunn Haha Kate is funny . I guess I am not watching this one

Minn Wong This is really a good drama and i would say the most heart touching drama i have ever watched... I love jeong bo soek the most...he acted very very well.. i cried whenever see he crying... thumps up for him and all casts...

Kate SOOOO BORRRINGGG, do not watch. I warn you

sibae the main actors are very good and even the kids. just want special mention to jong bu sok who played dad of bong woo ri ssi. excellent acting. you deserve the award.

Bonnie Lynn Katzell Muench I have seen many great dramas but I am adding this to my top list as one of the best.... All the actors and actresses did a great job...Bravo and applause...

Amanda Writed The thing I do NOT like about this drama is the family with the grandmother. When they had scenes with that family even the imbecile father , I wanted to slip it. By the time episode 22 comes along this whole story " jumps the shark" as we call it. It means that the story becomes ridiculous and non sensual and that the writer has lost it

Laura Dern Bong Jung Hyundai and his daughter make me tired when I watch them with all these shenanigans. They never quit moving. I don't think I could live with someone like that. They would age me in a minute.

herbmom I loved this drama. Just finished and wishing it went on a bit longer. Would love to see Woo-Ri and Dong-Joo as a couple more, and Joon-Ha find some happiness. Tender moments....grandma was great, young-gyu was amazing, loved the brother relationship. I cried more than once over 30 episodes. Good story, great acting, botanical garden beautiful.

sporean LOVED this show. LOVED Dongjoo and Woori. I'm a big believer in destiny - that Woori was destined to be with Dongjoo and had been "prepared" for her role as the companion of deaf Dongjoo since young by her deaf mother. They were just meant to be. The only reason I voted 98% out of 100% here was that I wanted even more Dongjoo-Woori scenes and MORE kissing and didn't get that!!

Didn't anyone find Ma Roo/Jung Ha creepy in the way he looked at his sister Woori? I was SO worried he was going to force himself on her when he asked her to sleep over at his apartment. Seung Chul was spot-on in saying that Ma Roo/Jung Ha saw her as a woman and not a sister. So creepy!

Jocylin 조술란 As most people who know me would say, I'm not much of a crier. . But this drama took all my reserves away and had me bawling like a little girl by the 4th episode. No drama has touched my heart the way that this has. And upon finishing it yesterday I'm having extreme withdrawals and a strong urge to watch it all over again. I love the way cha dong joo's deafness was portrayed and although as an asl signer I knew his talking was too good the drama didn't lack because of it. I was so happy that i could learn some Korean sign language as well because online ksl resources are extremely limited. :) I highly recommend this drama because truly it moves you and it just made me feel so enlightened. . Plus it gave me a glimpse of how deafness is portrayed in Korea. I usually don't have a lot to say about a drama but I'm holding back as i could talk for like ever about this fantastic drama ... honestly though WATCH THIS DRAMA if you have not. Lastly (as I'm struggling to not write a novel here) 차동주 사랑해요!

Wendilynn I started watching this drama for the love story because it sounded intriguing. Ended up watching it for Jang Joon-Ha character who is the glue that keeps this drama in check. His story steals every scene and is amazing. Min Namgung gave a very powerful performance. The love story ended up not moving me much, which surprised me because I love the two lead actors, but I don't think the writers were as brave as they could have been with the challenges these characters could have had. MNG is the true lead in this story.

Patricia What is the song that Bong Young-Gyu sing for his mother?

Anyone knows the name of it?

jaglaine This is a really good drama. A bit longish, considering that it's 30 episodes. But if you gear yourself up to the fact that it is 30 episodes, hence, some scenes will be extended (as expected), you'll be okay. It has a good, solid storyline. Each episode building up to a satisfying ending. The family dynamics are quite interesting. It had well-defined characters. The characters, the changes that some of them have undergone, drew me in and got me hooked. I loved the brotherhood between Cha Dong Joo and Jang Joon Ha, they were such a joy to watch. Min Soo summed up their relationship very well! LOL! Dong Joo, born wealthy but, nonetheless, very unasssuming both as a child and as a man. I loved this character! The love between Dong Joo and Woo Ri will satisfy those who are suckers for romance. And Kim Jae Won played him to a tee! Nam Gung Min was also perfect as Joon Ha. Lee Hye-Young, beautiful, great actor. Jeong Bo Seok made Bong Young Gyu as real as can be. Overall, great story, great acting. I fully recommend this as a must-watch drama.

Yohanna Veshanya I love this drama! This drama really touched my heart. Thank you, producer, writer and director of this drama.

nona first when read the title not interesting.., after watching,,,like so much this drama.. especially the kids acting, best..__^

Min.Sung Kim Sae Ron! She was in the movie The Man From Nowhere with hottest actor of Korea, WON BIN! She's a cute actress. I prefer her over Kim Yoo Jung. :P

Neiba Jung I've never seen such type beautiful drama. "Kim Sae Ron, this drama attracts me because of you." I really appreciate by her action.

Nyeiba Jung I've never seen such type of beautiful drama, it makes my blood hot and emotion. Kim Sae Ron you're my model, I jst fall in love with you.... :D ;) :*

Gasenadi Jang Joon Ha's character was the reason I stayed with this drama. He was brilliantly portrayed by young Seo Young-Joo and adult Nam Goong Min, who I've never seen before but will search for starting NOW. Compelling series depicting family and what it REALLY means. No one does abandonment/betrayal like kdrama. Forgiveness, here, is not cheap, either. YAY! I started watching for Mr. Lee (Lee Seong-Min) and Woo-Ri (Hwang Jung-Eun) while their latest drama, "Golden Time", is complete. Agree with other reviewers that Grandma, Young-Gyu and Dong Joo were awesome. The MUSIC is almost operatic; everytime those violins started, I cried.

Ary i love this drama, & of course the lead actor Kim Jae-Won and also Nam Gung-Min . they r the best. nice story line, perfect acting, its really worth watching, its highly recommended!

jb the kid that plays Bong Woo-Ri is so cute

NewKDramaAddict This was a wonderful drama; did not care the ending as much but overall, it flowed and had a story to tell. There were no love triangles, per se, which I hate. Even though Dong-Joo's mother had an ulterior motive for taking Ma-ru; she never mistreated him. Not saying what she did was right/wrong but it was understandable! The acting by all was phenomenal!

boo One of the best and heartwarming Korean drama series I have ever seen. It truly touches human hearts as well as difficulties and struggles in life that Love cannot surpass... in any relationship. I congratulate all that is behind this drama... a must see of families because it gives us a picture of the real meaning of family.. that it is not confined in blood relations but on how one accepts the other and opens himself/herself up to that person to be part of his/her life. Forgiveness, unconditional love, acceptance, and what is more touching is the drama's perception and sensitivity to people who are physically challenged. I love the treatment and process of acceptance of someone who is shut off from sounds and voices for all his life and someone who is branded as "foolish" but, these two people represents in their character portrayal that what seemed to be lacking in them are not "lacking" at all because they are so capable of what it takes to be truly human, that is, someone who can love and forgive... unconditionally... God bless... i hope that more dramas like these will be produced.

me Cha dong joo looks very surprised when i saw his old. Jang Joon Ha! once again im falling in love with the bad ones lol.

rosy i really like this story because the story teach me lot of lesson about how deaf people how there feeling. i think that we are very luck that we can hear :)

MonikaB Excellent drama! The well written script held my attention for the 30 episodes. The actors all did a very good job. Kudos to all three of the young actors (Kang Chan-Hee, Kim Sae-Ron, & Seo Young-Joo) for their strong performances.

vca4109 a veryvery very nice drama, i cried a lot! ....really good actors and actresses... excellent directors' and writers'....a must watch!!! .... love them all!!!!

KJW forever It's a must to watch it... sadness,happiness,family..everything is mixed very well you'll cry,you'll laugh.. as far as the episode goes,it has been a heart-touching series. Hopefully it won't be a too long series to watch as people will get bored.

Violeta Super interesting drama, and I thought that dramas with a lot of episodes are boring. I watched 6 episodes already and I'm really satisfied. But I guess we'll have to wait for more episodes to see if this is going to be as good as it's start. Fingers crossed. Well, as for now, I really recommend everyone to watch it...♥

esther is it just me or hwang jung eum and cheong bo suk is in EVERY drama together? hahha in high kick through the roof, giant, and now this :D

i love them both though! i'm going to watch this now

miyu can't wait!!!!! kim jae won...comeback drama after military service
