tvN’s weekend drama “It’s Okay to Not Be Okay” is coming to an end soon.

 

“It’s Okay to Not Be Okay” tells the story of Moon Kang Tae (Kim Soo Hyun), a community health worker at a psychiatric ward, and Go Moon Young (Seo Ye Ji), a children’s storybook writer with antisocial personality disorder.

 

With just the final episode remaining, “It’s Okay to Not Be Okay” revealed three main points to look out for in the finale.

Spoilers

Spoiler

Moon Kang Tae and Go Moon Young’s sweet romance

Moon Kang Tae and Go Moon Young’s relationship has gone through numerous ups and downs throughout the drama. The conflict between them reached a climax due to the reappearance of Go Moon Young’s mother Do Hee Jae (Jang Young Nam), who was revealed to be the murderer of Moon Kang Tae’s mother. Viewers are curious about how the couple’s relationship will change after Do Hee Jae’s arrest.

In the end, Moon Kang Tae and Go Moon Young take off their masks and let go of the weight on their shoulders, each seeing the other for who they truly are. Their romance is set to escalate from the moment they face each other with sincerity. The sweetness of their relationship will be an important part of the final episode.

Go Moon Young and Moon Sang Tae’s fairy tale

Go Moon Young had been working on a fairy tale together with Moon Sang Tae (Oh Jung Se) about a boy who wears a smiling mask, a princess with no capacity for emotions, and a man who lives inside a box. However, in order to apologize for what her mother did to Moon Kang Tae and Moon Sang Tae’s mother, Go Moon Young decided to stop writing and push the two men away. However, when Go Moon Young asked the brothers to leave her castle, Moon Sang Tae replied, “Over my dead body,” revealing his desire to stay by her side and help her finish her book.

Moon Sang Tae had also been working on drawing facial expressions, something that was difficult for him. He practiced by observing and drawing other people’s faces in order to complete the homework that Go Moon Young had given him and draw illustrations that suited her story. Go Moon Young recognizes his hard work, but also can’t bring herself to finish her fairy tale due to her guilt and regret. With the two brothers doing their best to comfort her, whether or not she will be able to finish her fairy tale is a key question that will be answered in the final episode.

The trio’s first trip together

Go Moon Young travels all over with Moon Kang Tae and Moon Sang Tae, who have never been on a proper vacation before. Although they aren’t going anywhere as far away as the Serengeti, the trio’s very first trip together will nonetheless bring them happiness and solace. They also bring a special gift with them on their trip, which is given to them by someone unexpected. The gift is expected to help create a perfect end to the drama. The trip will also create space for the trio’s emotional growth as they become even closer to one another.

 

The final episode of “It’s Okay to Not Be Okay” airs on August 9 at 9 p.m. KST.

I’m happy to have received a lot of love as Go Moon Young.” Seo Ye Ji also expressed her gratitude as she said, “I want to thank everyone who participated in ‘It’s Okay to Not Be Okay,’ as well as all the viewers.”

Our Favorite Korean Drama Actors Who Played As Military Men in K-Dramas and Films

 

We have seen different types of men in Korean dramas like a dashing CEO, a handsome and rich chaebol, a king or prince from another era or parallel universe, a heartthrob lawyer or prosecutor, and the smart and good-looking doctor.

 

However, every Korean drama lover would agree that there is a certain appeal with actors who portray a neat and fierce military character onscreen, especially when they get dressed up in attention-grabbing military uniforms.

 

The most recent example of this is Hallyu star Hyun Bin who played the North Korean military captain Ri Jeon Hyeok in "Crash Landing on You," and Lee Min Ho as Emperor Lee Gon in the "The King: Eternal Monarch."

 

And yes! We do love watching them wearing their military uniforms!

7 Memorable OSTs From "It's Okay To Not Be Okay" — Which One is Your Favorite?

 

7-memorable-osts-from-its-okay-to-not-be

 

One of the most unforgettable dramas this year, "It's Okay To Not Be Okay," sadly comes to an end. Apart from its amazing plot and superb cast lineup, we'll certainly miss the memorable OSTs that evoked and moved our hearts.

 

From the start of the series, talented singers with their unique voices and charming melodies that suited the drama fueled our sadness, the butterflies in our tummy, and all the emotions we felt all throughout.

 

And if you're one of us who miss the show, let's reminisce as we listen to these seven musical masterpieces from "It's Okay To Not Be Okay".

Spoiler

"Breath" by Sam Kim

This is one of the memorable OST songs that gave us goosebumps every time the intro is played. It definitely lingers in our heart and mind, with Kim Soo Hyun and Seo Ye Ji's face flashing in our memory showcasing their great chemistry.

"In Your Time" by AKMU's Lee SuHyun

 

With its enigmatic piano melody and Lee SuHyun's cold, beautiful voice carrying the sad emotions of Kim So Hyun and Seo Ye Ji's past life, this song will make your heart long for someone be by your side as well. It's one of the best OSTs of the drama where Seo Ye Ji finds healing and transforms into a better person with Kim Soo Hyun.

"Hallelujah" by Kim Feel's

The song depicts the sad life experience of Kwak Dong Yeon's speech as he expresses how lonely he felt being neglected by his family. It means rejoicing of finding one's happiness and releasing from the pain that holds oneself.

"Puzzle" by Yongzoo

"Puzzle" depicts the progress of Kim Soo Hyun and Seo Ye Ji's romantic relationship. The brighter melody and lyrics about life is never complete without inspiration from the one you love, and it surely fluttered the heart of the viewers as the wonderful memories of the couple during the beginning of their romance replays in their mind.

"Little by Little" by CHEEZE

CHEEZE's song carries the magical vibe that brings both sadness and joy. It gives a shuddering feeling that little by little, memories transform the heart and heals the person within.

"In Silence" by Janeh Suhh

The intro song brings a flashback of the painful stories of our stars in the drama. Remember the unforgettable scene where Kim Soo Hyun found Seo Ye Ji was walking late at night under the profusely pouring rain on the bridge? Though the song brings a tinge of hurt, it is one of the best OSTs of the drama as well.

"Cold" by Heize

Heize really never fails to deliver! "Cold" lingers in your mind about each scene while listening to it, and that, of course, includes Kim Soo Hyun and Seo Ye Ji's irresistible moments together.

Cold by Heize is one of the best I think when I heard it 1st time.. Idk why.. but the lyrics hits me so much.. 2nd is Breathe by Sam Kim; I firmly understood the lyrics when it pops up. It fills the gap with the sense of longing/needing and that borderline of empty can/bottomless stomach 

 

:rubchin:

to think OTT streaming service and VOD will hurt public television show like KBS, MBC and SBS.. More younger people opts to watch dramas with no ads intervene..plus they have more freedom with lesser "commentary by parents" who sat in front of tv

 

 

Stay true to your words, Kim Soo Hyun!! Be an all rounder actor like Lee Jung Jae, Ha Jung Woo, Choi Min Sik and Jung Woo Sung.
