Tell Me That You Love Me stars Jung Woo Sung as deaf artist Cha Jin Woo and Shin Hyun Been as aspiring actress Jung Mo Eun.
Both actors are utterly superb in their roles, but with Jung Woo Sung being the absolute standout as, three episodes in, and he has yet to utter a single line of dialogue but has still burrowed his way into everyone’s heart.
The Korean drama streams every Monday and Tuesday night on Genie TV in South Korea, with ENA also airing it for its audience.
Outside Korea, the drama is extremely difficult to find legally, with only Disney + streaming it so far and for very limited audiences.
Fingers crossed it will get a wider audience going forward.
