[Current Drama 2020] It's Okay not to be Okay, 사이코지만 괜찮아 - Sat & Sun @ 21:00 KST

Recommended Posts

Episode 9 written preview. Credits to instagram account @_ayachk! I wasn't able to attach the screenshot as i have no idea how! haha

 

"KT is going on a trip with MY. After having a good time on his first trip, KT gets a phone call from an unexpected person. Meanwhile, ST's dream of KT leaving him behind makes him feel uneasy" 

 

Curious as to who this unexpected person is! Also my heart is aching for ST but we saw this obstacle coming from ep 7/8. Hope it doesn't get dragged past ep 10 though and ST is comforted and starts accepting MY as part of their life!

So the random singing and the head nurse being good to Hyung would probably be used as a hint while all arrows are pointing at Ok Ran as MY’s mom. I’m pretty sure now that I’ve read your thoughts, that Ok Ran is just a mysterious character who’s curious about the novels. Maybe she used to be a journalist. 


Ok Ran’s character brief

Quote

She used to be an unknown theater actor. She was not given the chance to recite a line, so she repeated plastic surgery several times. The more that happened, the lower the self-esteem and the higher the sense of inferiority. She continued to hurt herself, trying to show 'I' (the real me?).  She is a huge fan of Do Hee-jae's "The Murder of the Western Witch" series.


Given the fact that she’s had multiple plastic surgeries, she may well have been someone in MY’s dad’s past but is now not recognizable to either MY or the dad.    Potentially she could be someone who is seeking to torment MY’s dad for his past treatment of his wife?

Hii I've been lurking here for a while now. And it's such a delight reading your analysis.

 

But I think I just need to get it out of my chest cause it's bothering me for a while.

 

Disclaimer: I think I'm being shallow here since I shouldnt really pay attention to ratings and such..

 

I watched something and saw that KSH's goal for this drama is 15%. And I think IOTNBO is doing great otherwise! It's #1 in Netflix KR and a lot of people are watching it via TVing.

 

But I cant help but feel bad when I saw the ratings every other episode which is stagnant... I dont know what I really should do.. 

 

I know that everyone knows that KSH is an A lister. Hence, he has various hit dramas. For SYJ, I really really really want more people or the general public to be aware of her..... 

 

I know I shouldnt dwell on things like this haha but I'm feeling sad otherwise. 

 

Do you guys also quite feel the same thing?

Hi, also almost the first time posting here.

Regarding the 15%, I watched the press conference, and KSH was obviously joking. And that was actually referring to the rating for the first episode, in which case 15% was almost impossible. My limited knowledge of KSH (I am trying to know him as much as I can) also suggests that he probably does not have a goal for rating (otherwise, he would not have chosen IOTNBO. After all, he has broken all kinds of records with ratings in the past already.

 

I was wondering/worrying about the rating, but then again, why should we let other people's preferences influence how we  enjoy this drama? I think the main reason behind the rating being what it is now is that the main target group of this drama is not the same group who would watch (paid) TV. I'd like to think that the production team does not really expect or care too much about the  high ratings to begin with. Because if they do, they would have inserted a kiss scene already, given that this is the type of scene that will create buzzes. Instead, they are moving the drama in a pace that suits the healing process and the story telling itself. 

 

So I am not sure if I make you feel better. But I think IOTNBO will stay with us for a long time... and that I am grateful for.

His Trauma made him convulate and merge the 2 concepts which Led ST to believe that BUtterflies are what chasing Him because they killed their Mum

 

Thanks @madmad min because this made me think of something. In the earlier episodes, we actually saw ST passing by murals of dinosaurs and he would actually see them "coming alive". I am not sure if it is trauma or related to his developmental disorder causing some kind of overstimulation leading him to see static graphics as moving and alive. I am not sure if this means much as we did suspect the butterfly to be an ornate object or pattern the murderer was wearing but I guess from ST's eyes, this butterfly object might have appeared as some large, moving and alive butterfly overwhelming his actual vision of the murderer's appearance. So when the police questioned him on what he saw, he was indeed describing what he saw and very likely his developmental disorder caused him to be unable to see the real identity of the murderer. I think it would be helpful if he saw the object/pattern once again. That might trigger the same visuals in his mind.

I simply love the drama too much. 

 

I don't really have high expectation for Kim So Huyn's acting in this drama. Personally I have never noticed his acting before; probably because his roles weren't what I was interested in while watching his drama.

In this drama, however, for the first time I truly notice him. In the beginning, the character of MY attracted me because it was such a breath of fresh air. I couldn't help but be drawn to her character that I didn't really pay attention to Kim So Huyn's acting. But as the drama progress, I found what I always look for in acting: subtlety. Small changes in facial expression that can speak volume way more than words and the eyes that can act like windows to the show. 

 

The character of KT is someone who suppresses his desire; so far he basically has lived for other people, not himself. Even his smiles are not for himself. He even has to control his expressions for the sake of his brother. Without subtle acting, this character cannot be brought to life like this. How I love KT's smile towards MY, so genuine. MY is someone who is frank to tell her mind and do what she wants (and really loud in making herself heard); Seo ye ji does it very very well and has a commanding presence on screen but it takes a good companion who can help her shine and still make himself shine in his role.

 

Because KT suppresses his feeling so much, when he finally lets it out, he is like an exploding bomb. Strangely, as much as I love Kim So Huyn's subtle acting, I love the scene where he basically screams at the manager equally the same. So natural in pouring out his emotion without going overboard (overacting). Kim So Huyn really balances it well here. Episode 7 and 8 actually seals the deal for me: I like Kim So Huyn's acting in this drama a lot.

First, I'm not good in English so I tried my best to give comment

 

The first time I heard Kim Soo Hyun's new drama is healing drama, I knew the rating won't high like his old dramas. I think healing drama, this kind of genre is not too popular for Korean audience. They like family drama, romcom, or saeguk.

Healing drama It's Okay That's Love, I heard people like and praised it a lot but the highest rating only 13% on SBS.  My Mister by IU received critical acclaim and praised by Korean audience but the highest rating only about 7% on TVN,  so IOTNBO has 5-6% actually it's quite good.

And IOTNBO popular in Korea and some countries so don't worry about rating. It's not that bad for healing drama.

The fight scene was hilarious.. if i was GT i dont think i can coped with ST and MY behaviour.. GT is extremely patience with both of them. But for the first time in beauty and the beast episode I can see GT rage!! It makes me wonder again who is beauty and who is the beast! Even the jealous part when GT scolded CEO its funny coz we can see GT rage of frustration

KimSooHyunShi PH and Int FC send coffee truck support to the actor on set of “It’s Okay to Not Be Okay”

 

What used to be just a wish finally came true!

This project has been made possible with the joint efforts of KimSooHyunShi Philippines and KimSooHyunshi International FC.

Planned in March 2020, the project only took 1 month to be materialized.

 

Eventually, after 4 months of dedicated hard work, the efforts exerted by the teams behind the project paid off as the coffee truck finally reached its intended destination on July 11, 2020.

 

The coffee truck support project included a special message for our dear Kim Soohyun which says:

 

We love and support you our King Soo Hyun!

 

We take pride in this accomplishment and may our dear Soo Hyun-shii and the entire production team feel our love and support for the show through this project.

I'm working backwards here and guessing wildly. I have not thought as much about the head nurse as y'all have but.... what if she is Moon Young's mum?? She's near enough to her husband to haunt him with the Clementine song or punish him if he had tried to kill her. Of course plastic surgery can always change her looks, but..... her voice would be a give away, and she would have shown more concern for MY and not left her laying on the ground.... hmmmm!!

 

Does anyone know what this sculpture is? ( to me it looks like it's from the Benin Kingdom.) It was in the opening scene of ep 8. It must have a meaning.

  Hide contents

Everyone has offered such good theories about MY's mom, I find myself torn as to whether the mom's dead or alive! If the nurse is the mom, it would explain her behavior towards MY. It comes off as cold, but maybe she wants to keep MY away from her dad by keeping her away from OK Hospital.

 

But, kdramas follow certain conventions/patterns, right? Is there an episode number where if the mom hasn't shown up by then, we'd feel confident saying, yeah, she's dead. I can't imagine this show would wait until the last episode to do the reveal.

 

I don't recognize the statute, but it reminds of the three wise monkeys embodying "see no evil, hear no evil, speak no evil." Was that in the director's office? If so, it could symbolize doctor/patient confidentiality?

Ooh. If it's unexpected, it must be someone we haven't already seen or hasn't appeared in the last few episodes. Someone from childhood? Could it be the police calling with updates/questions about his mom's death? Someone from a previous facility he worked at?

I understand tvN is a paid subscription channel so a rating over 5%, which IOTNBO is hitting, is considered quite good. Also, look at how robust the discussion is on here. That's proof enough the show and the actors are well-loved. This is my first time watching SYJ, and I'm super impressed. I will definitely check out her next project. :) I think there are also a lot of Netflix viewers outside of Korea and those don't count towards the ratings.

Thanks to most of the viewers that already given their expert views in this thread.  I really admired the writer using traditional fairy tale as an analogy to share the moral of the story.

 

Each story symbolizes a key hidden meaning which all started with "HOPE" - means everyone is longing to find one:

1.  Zombie kid - warmth love

2.  Cheerful dog -  set free

3.  Beauty and the beast - true love

 

The three simple stories are relatable and applied to everyone who is longing to achieve those in this modern society. What i like about this three stories, they have something in common : It is a journey that CROSSING OVER FROM PAIN TO PEACE. This journey requires psychological healing and self-growth. Conflict becomes unavoidable. I hope the healing for KT & MY & ST is the result of feeling safe, empowered and supported, and i hope the writer will allow them eventually find their own peace.

 

I am not sure the writer will continue giving us another profound tale in the upcoming EP,  but one thing for sure,  I am enjoying each of the traditional fairy tale that carries a meaningful message.

I don't watch a lot of healing movies or dramas. But this one really lives up to its description as healing.

 

As the drama progresses, I take a look back at the poster where KT rests his head on MY's shoulder. In the beginning, it's MY who tags along KT and demands having him as her safety pin - but more like an object. Gradually, it's KT who needs her as well as he need someone to constantly push him out of comfort zone, make he acknowledge things he doesn't want to admit himself and help him open up what is penned up inside. He protects and comforts her with his back hug but he also seeks solace in her presence.

 

MY's impulsive and volatile but she can see through people well. She has a way of helping people release their emotions without trying to be nice. Instead, she acts like a coldhearted psycho all the time. She helps the senator's son have what he called the best day of his life because he can now say what he truly wants to say. It's notlike she acts without a selfish motive but she does help ST realize his dream of becoming an illustrator by acknowledge his as the best one. She takes away the shawl to help the lady relieve of her burden and finally learn to let go. She is ready to fight even with just a rock in front of the abusive ex-husband. And she constantly makes KT realize what a suppressing life he has been living, wanting to break free and getting loved. I like how her character progress without losing its original color. She changes to the better without losing what makes her special to KT. She becomes more attentive of his feeling and finally admits to him that she is hurt, showing her vulnerable side to him without hiding anymore.

 

I don't like the way she talks and behaves towards other, honestly. Her tone is harsh and impolite; her actions can be very rude. It can be interpreted as a defence mechanism, a mask that hide her vulnerable self or a product of her upbringing. Still, really out of norm. SJJ's voice really suits the character in this case. It is such a relief that KT sees through that and becomes more and more considerate of her. Honestly, he really puts up with her behaviour a lot and starts to think for her, from her POV much more. I am impressed with MY character but I am really looking forward to see the days she can soften her behavior towards other. So far, she kinda acts normal and sweet in front of KT only.  It is ok even if she will not become completely normal because she is special in her own weird way but it doesn't hurt that she at least talks more polite to people who truly supports KT so far, right? (his "chicken friend" or his "landlord", for example).

Hello Guys!

 

How are you doing?

 

Anyway, watched this weeks episodes - I'm just really happy on how things are progressing with the story and characters. 

 

I can tell KT is beginning to loosen up a bit. When he....punched AR's ex hubby in defense of MY,  OH MY GOD! I screamed! 

 

MY does have sticky hands. If KT doesn't punch that guy, AR's ex might have serious head injury....

 

For me, they seem to be each other's safety pins. KT can calm MY and MY does understand KT in a way that sometimes even KT is surprise MY knows. He lost it when he sees someone hurt MY. I mean thats how relationship works sometimes,  I got mad and frustrated and my bf is the one that makes me calm down and talk sense with me lol :D

 

I love how they portray MY's "caged" life with her long hair.  MY looks really happy and refresh :D

 

About the preview

Spoiler

- I think Ms Park has something to do with MY's mom maybe a fan ...

-  Who will KT choose - Family or love?

Daebak! The stylist must have altered the length of the skirt to suit KMY's character. :D

BTW, did anyone notice that MY's nail colour has changed to a pastel shade of green? Glad that they toned down her nail colour to suit her new look!

Wow. It keeps amazed me in every way! This is what I feel every time I've done an episode of IONTO. 

 

Oh the jealousy! I feel like this episode is perfectly plot so well in reverse. You see that some characters are doing a parallel scenes one after another here. First it is MY who imitate to cut the leash which held her tight all these years. She starts daring herself to fight her fear, her usual pattern that being nurtured by her mom since she was young. It's not an easy job to do but she did take the first step to escape from her past trauma. KT always felt less loved but thanks to MY he got all the love extremely overflowing. MY only looks at him and he can't even hide his true feeling anymore. What MY said is right. They're well matched. She's a ticking bomb and he's the safety pin. They complete each other. He knows that MY is more precious to him even more now. Unlike last time, he just yelled to stop her fight with ST, I love how he comes to check on her and asked her if she was okay. 

 

MY is like a trigger for him. What KT did might not just a spur of moment or a mistake like JR blamed. If he didn't step in to hit AR's ex husband, MY is all gear up with her big stone to hit him on his head. Even it ended him up with a suspense. But it means like a freedom for him. He free himself by cutting her leash, KT leash is him being suppressed with his own feelings. 

 

I feel a bit sad for ST in some ways. He feels like he will lose KT's love. He feels like he is less loved, he sense that KT is falling for MY so hard each day. You see how good this drama making such a beautiful parallel here. It's what KT always feel toward him and mom and now he feels it too.

 

"If I give all I have to others then what left for me" "she can have MT not KT" 

 

ahh... look how little ST inside is afraid that KT won't love him as much as before. He was ever asked who he loves more, KT or MY. And it's clear what is the answer now here. He loves him more. Seeing the fight is making me laugh at the moment. Whoah. Reminds me of fight siblings of SYJ with GKP in Potato Star. Lol.  Next it's reversed, we got preview episode that ST ask KT with the same question he ever get. Whether it is him, his hyung or MY the one he likes more. I wonder will he tell the truth or lie again to try to calm his insecurity. He shouldn't cuddle him anymore. Treat him more to be an adult cuz ST seems more sensitive than he thought. Like he can read KT's feeling even his face expression tells him the other way. 

 

Oh, I see JS is much cooler in this episode! Did he have a crush with that female art director??? Hahaha. I like how quick he stops the CEO from hurting her. And fill a water to her glass. All I can say he's cool!

 

JR's mom is such a nice human being ever! I love how realistic and wise she is in dealing with her daughter's matter. She's the most okay person among all those not okay people.

 

We always got MY inspired us with her reality perspective but it's interesting this episode it's her who learn from the fairy tale persoective, a love of hope. A love that slowly change her. A love that moves her coldness inside. And a love which will make her to be much okay. It's also beautiful seeing how the hospital romance helps KT to realize his feeling over her. Ah.. what an epic parallel. Love this part.

 

Ok, I ended it here. It becomes pretty long. Waiting for next weekend excitedly.
