We have a new fake relationship Chinese drama airing and I just had to check it out. Come discover if this is a perfect summer binging drama as I share my first impressions of I Hear You.
Synopsis: A matchmaking game brings together a bubbly voice actor and a taciturn violin maker. Will they turn their fake romance into a real one?
Some of you may know that my absolute favorite drama trope is fake relationship/forced cohabitation. I love when the couple is forced by fate to live together. Bei Er Duo and Ye Shu Wei don’t have the best first meeting, but they are thrown together as contestants on a matchmaking program. In order to prove they are a “real
Bei Er Duo – I like that she’s bubbly but not dumb. She’s working hard to make her place in the acting industry as a voice actress. Instead of being a total ditz, she’s trying to improve skills by taking Japanese classes. While she still has a lot of childlike qualities, it’s more because she lives her life to the fullest.
Ye Shu Wei-His character is more complex. He’s quieter and reserved, but he’s loyal and I like that. At first, I had a hard time with this actor because he never smiled. Then I saw him smile and his dimple came out and oh my goodness! Now I know why they made him look so serious, his whole face transforms when he smiles.
Should You Watch?
I’m still in the early part of the show, at episode 6, but I find it charming. I’m curious how many shenanigans these two can get into. The actors have good chemistry and I’m enjoying the storyline. The honesty of the characters is refreshing and I’m also enjoying the relationship between Bei Er Duo’s friend and her coworker.
Let me know in the comments if you have this show on your list or if you’ve watched it.
Until the next new find,
