Kim Soo Hyun 김수현 - Current Drama: "It's Okay To Not Be Okay"

Recommended Posts

[HanCinema's News] "It's Okay to Not Be Okay" Blurs Boundaries Between Practical and Computer Effects




Recent comparative stills released by tvN have helped shed some light on the mystery of how exactly "It's Okay to Not Be Okay" is being filmed. The drama has won much interest and acclaim for its unique visual style. Many have wondered if even the more mundane effects, like shots of a mansion in the countryside, were real places or just computer images.


The answer is a bit of both. For the mansion at least, the countryside is real but the mansion is largely simulated, with only the part needing to be seen in close-up shots actually physically present. Similar patterns appear in the drama's other noteworthy visuals. A balcony, for example, is real alongside its shadows, with the backdrop being added in digitally. A real chandelier is used for a gothic interior even if other less central details are only inserted post-production.


In more dangerous pieces, such as a scene involving a crashing car, computer modeling is used to establish all the fundamentals of the scene with everything after that point needing to be manually altered. Over twenty artists working over a period of two months were necessary in order to get that scene just right. This is part of why the hybrid approach is emphasized. In addition to looking nice, hybrid scenes also tend to be much cheaper to film.


But far beyond penny-pinching creative design is the main point being emphasized in these decisions. The VFX director for "It's Okay to Not Be Okay" has spoken highly of director Park Shin-woo, describing him as an inquisitive visual designer with many excellent ideas for how to combine location shooting with computer imaging software to create something uniquely stylish.

Choi Daniel’s Appearance Sparks Change In Kim Soo Hyun And Seo Ye Ji’s Relationship In “It’s Okay To Not Be Okay”




tvN’s weekend drama “It’s Okay to Not Be Okay” has released new stills from the upcoming episode!


The drama tells the story of Moon Kang Tae (Kim Soo Hyun), a community health worker at a psychiatric ward who doesn’t have time for love, and Go Moon Young (Seo Ye Ji), a successful children’s book author who suffers from antisocial personality disorder and has never known love. After meeting one another, the two slowly begin to heal each other’s emotional wounds.



In the previous episode, Go Moon Young began to rid herself of the trauma her mother had caused her by cutting her hair, spending the moment together with Moon Kang Tae.


As Go Moon Young and Moon Kang Tae slowly begin the process of healing their emotional scars, viewers are excited to see how the pair unknowingly grow closer to each other.


In the newly released stills, Moon Kang Tae and Go Moon Young are joined by an unfamiliar man (Choi Daniel). Moon Kang Tae seems unsettled by the appearance of the man as he looks at him and Go Moon Young in displeasure.




Choi Daniel starred in writer Jo Yong’s previous drama “Jugglers,” leading to his special appearance in “It’s Okay to Not Be Okay.” Choi Daniel took on the role of Go Moon Young’s fan as well as the CEO of an advertisement company. He will have an active part in creating tension between Moon Kang Tae and Go Moon Young, and even the viewers will find themselves being drawn in by his role.


Choi Daniel commented, “It was fun acting alongside the two main actors and the director. I made a lot of memories and had an enjoyable time filming in such a harmonious atmosphere.”


Meanwhile, in a different set of stills, Moon Kang Tae and Go Moon Young are holding hands as they look into each other’s eyes.




The drama’s production team shared, “In episode 8, Moon Kang Tae will reach a turning point in which he forgets about the heavy burden of his life thanks to Go Moon Young.


The bittersweet romance that blooms as Moon Kang Tae and Go Moon Young begin to gradually face their troubles as well as the moments in which they save each other from their childhood traumas will leave a deep impression on viewers, so please look forward to it.”


The next episode of “It’s Okay to Not Be Okay” airs July 12 at 9 p.m. KST.

Not everyone does whatever they want to do like you." However, Seo Ye Ji advised Kim Soo Hyun to stop holding himself back and shook his heart as she said, "Let me pull your safety catch?"

5 K-dramas that will make you long for an unrealistic boyfriend


Romantic Korean dramas, or K-dramas, are known for their portrayals of the nearly perfect male protagonist.


Popular shows such as Boys of Flowers (2009) and Secret Garden (2010) present heroic male characters that are attractive, smart, rich and slightly arrogant – traits that apparently aim to appeal to viewers.


More recent K-dramas have modified the formula, making their characters more relatable while still having the ability to charm and plant butterflies in viewers' stomachs.


Some characters, however, appear to be a little too perfect, having unbelievably good genes and every possible good trait known to mankind.


These unrealistic characters may be products of the imagination, but the K-dramas that feature them sure know how to make you long for their real-life counterparts, if they even exist.


If you're up for the ride, dream away with the gentlemen listed below.



It’s Okay to not be Okay


It’s Okay to not be Okay is slightly different compared to other romantic K-dramas. Kim Soo-hyun plays the role of Moon Kang-tae, a handsome caregiver who works in a psychiatric hospital. Destiny brings him to meet antisocial children’s book author Ko Moon-young (Seo Ye-ji).


The two characters develop an instant attraction, but past events and their emotional baggage challenge the relationship.


Kang-tae is portrayed as very dependable and desirable. His background as a caregiver also shows his ability to provide comfort, allowing for moving scenes in the series.


Although there has been controversy surrounding the series for content that is considered to promote sexual harassment , It's Okay to not be Okay is one of those rare South Korean dramas that puts a spotlight on mental health. Moreover, the show's interpretation of fairytales is interesting given its gloomy and melancholic atmosphere.

It’s Okay To Not Be Okay Episode 7 not only made us laugh, cry, and laugh again, but gave us several life lessons. (by Reiane Garcia)

Hours before Episode 8 let’s reflect on some of these lessons and see how it applies to our own personal lives.
1. Your body is honest, when you’re in physical pain, you cry, but the heart is a liar, it stays quiet when it’s hurting. 
- Moon Sang Tae, Its Okay To Not Be Okay Episode 7

2. Mother’s love is powerful despite them being sinners. At some point in our lives, it’s difficult to understand their reasons, but in the end, their motives and actions are always for the benefit and welfare of their children.


3. I realize that what he needs is not another brother but a friend. 
- Jaesu, Its Okay To Not Be Okay Episode 7

4. When you’re tired, get some rest. When you’re sad, go ahead and cry. It’s ok to take a break. There will surely come a day when you will be able to run again. 
- Dr. Oh Ji Wang, Its Okay To Not Be Okay Episode 7

5. Don’t be deceived by people who always smile and laugh. They may be happy on the outside but their hearts are tied with heavy burdens that surface when their guard is down. Most of us have kept our pains for so long that we tend to forget how to free ourselves from them.
