When we mention ‘romcoms,’ some automatic thoughts come to mind that makes us, the more adult audience, cringe. There are too many happy fairytale endings, too much fluff, and too much cheesiness in this film. Several shows in the “rom-com” genre, on the other hand, manage to stay grounded and organic.
So, if you’re still in the mood for romance and want to feast on a more rational yet sweet rendition, try ‘I Hear You.’ This Chinese drama, which was added to Netflix’s roster as part of the company’s effort to incorporate more Asian shows, premiered on May 15, 2019. In late January, the series premiered on Youku and Monago TV in China, and it consists of 24 episodes.
‘I Hear You,’ directed by Sunny Hsu and based on Shi Xiao Zha’s renowned web book ‘The Most Pleasant Thing to Hear,’ tells the story of a young, adorable aspiring voice actor and her relationship with a severe, disdainful violinmaker. They start an unlikely romance when their paths intersect on a reality show. Zhou Mo and Huang Jin Ming are the show’s producers.
Who’s in the I Hear You Cast?
The series’ main characters are Riley Wang and Zhao Lu Si. Wang, a member of the Taiwanese boy band ‘Spexial,’ has been in TV dramas such as ‘Long for You’ and ‘Attention, Love!’ Lu Si, who took part in the 2016 campaign for the singing talent show “Super Girls,” has acted in the films “Untouchable Lovers” and “Oh! “My Majesty, Your Majesty.”
What is the plot, I hear you?
‘I Hear You’ introduces us to Bei Er Duo, a typical young girl with aspirations to be a professional voice actor. Her mother, on the other hand, who is notorious for being difficult to please, forces her to go on several blind dates in order for her to settle down with a wealthy man.
Duo, on the other hand, is tenacious and, despite her financial difficulties, she does not complain or stress. Instead, she participates in a dating reality show to raise money for her international education. This is when she meets Ye Shu Wei, a brilliant violinmaker who is aloof, stiff, and mysterious. He’s forced to participate in the show after losing a bet to his nephew Yu Sheng. They begin cohabiting with each other as a result of their chance meeting, which quickly develops into a charming, loving relationship.
‘I Hear You,’ with one of the best on-screen chemistry, reveals how these two have a beneficial impact on each other’s life. Shu Wei Yet, for example, is strict at first. However, when Duo introduces him to fresh perspectives, he is eager to learn and see things in new ways. For the first time in his life, he recognizes he is impacted by another person’s feelings.
However, when it comes to dealing with his growing feelings, he is mature and balanced. Duo’s character, on the other hand, is incredibly well-written. She quickly brings in a new breath of air with her ever-joyous disposition. Each episode of the series is naturally paced and thoughtful, highlighting their unique dreams and peculiarities. We must say, it was a very enjoyable and nice presentation!
When will the second season of I Hear You premiere?
Season 1 of ‘I Hear You’ aired on Netflix on May 15, 2019. The show has 24 episodes and was distributed for an international audience of over 190 nations and regions via the platform.

The channel previously released a basketball reality show on Fox called ‘Dunk of China,’ which received 50 million views in just four days. As a result of the growing demand for Asian material, worldwide distributors are becoming more interested in the Chinese entertainment business.

We expect a sequel to ‘I Hear You’ to follow a similar pattern. However, no formal confirmation has been received as of yet.
