Lee Jong Suk Becomes a Psychopath in a Parody of “I Can Hear Your Voice”
On June 24, actor Lee Jong Suk transformed into a psychopathic serial killer in the suspense-thriller parody of the SBS Wednesday-Thursday drama “I Can Hear Your Voice.“
Viewers will hear echoes of “I’ll be there” playing in the background of this new version of “I Can Hear Your Voice,” as Lee Jong Suk becomes the cold-blooded killer responsible for a series of high school murders. This edited version creates a powerful story dynamic that strays far from the original drama series.
The thriller version of “I Can Hear Your Voice” begins with the suspicious murders of several high school girls. The central suspect is shown to be Lee Jong Suk, who soon decides his next victim: Lee Bo Young. Lee Jong Suk chases after her, pushing and pursuing her until his fingers finally tightens its grip around her throat. Or so the producers claim, as they create this monstrous version of Lee Jong Suk the Psychopath.
Under his echoing repetitions of “I’ll be there,” Lee Bo Young grows increasingly panicked with each subsequent text message. Her face-acting, coupled with the shaking camera lens, will suck the audience into an unbreakable suspense until the end–and viewers will then let go of the breath they didn’t know they were holding in.
The Netizens were quick to comment on the parody, exclaiming that “it was like watching an actual horror-thriller flick,” and, “Was this horror-atmosphere always there when they originally filmed ‘I Can Hear Your Voice’?” Their heated response showed the success of the parody in garnering audience response.
SBS Contents Hub is awaiting the SBS airing of the drama before releasing the parody. They plan to release the parody simultaneously with the TV Jobs Open event.
