STORY: Bum-soo is an aspiring and struggling musician who becomes really close with his biggest fan, Hyun-woo. A friendship develops and eventually more.

ACTING/CAST: All of the actors did a great job. It was nice that the actors had good voices and could play an instrument without needing a hand double.

MUSIC: By far the best part of this production. The song, "As If You Whisper," is great. I really like the simplicity of the lyrics.

REWATCH VALUE: I will watch it again. The visuals showing off the beauty of Korea and the nice music makes it worth it.

Overall: Would have been nice for more focus on the "romance" part of the plot . The ending was happy!

I really loved this. After obsessing endlessly lover Where Your Eyes Linger, I really wanted some more queer Korean dramas/films to watch. This definitely satisfied the craving (though now I'm going to fall down a Strongberry hole because they have so many other queer films that look well-done.

As If You Whisper tells the story of Bom Soo, an aspiring singer that is stuck doing vocal guides despite his talents as a musician. Then he meets Hyun Woo, a man that's been watching him for awhile. Though the story doesn't focus solely on the romance, I think the happy ending combined with Bom Soo's self realizations is such a wholesome completion. It'd be easy to make this a sad ending, but they didn't.

The music is also great, and the actor worked hard to record it himself. All together it's just a really solid, inspiring production.

I bought this on Vimeo for $6.99USD and I really recommend you do the same if you can. Please try to avoid watching this on YouTube. It's a small production company specializing in queer Korean films (which is a country already lacking in high-quality LGBTQ content). I really think they deserve the support so that they can make more amazing films and dramas like this one. I'm so glad I watched it, and I'll definitely rewatch it.
