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

I would love to see a scene in which we see the resentment/anger that Kang Tae has towards the burden of caring for his brother. It is realistic for a carer to feel that way, though it may not fit in a romantic drama, but I think it would work to show the other side of the coin of caring for loved ones. 

 

 

Me tooooo omg, I would love to see his strog facade crumble at least for one impactful emotional scene. He is being too selfless here (okay I know we're only at ep2 lol) But no matter how selfless and pure he is...there must be times where he just looses it right ? otherwise he is not human. From @stroppyse beautiful translations of the character descriptions (and thank you from the bottom of my heat for them @stroppyse , they are beautifully written and I bet your translation gave them justice.) You can feel that KT indeed has a bit of a dark side ( and rightfully so.. I even think that he rather turned out very well for someone with his circumstances...) KSH also abused of the word "tired" when descriing his character in an interview for Netflix, so basically KT is very tired of his cirvumstances (that why Jae Su tells him that his smile lookes like the Joker, not genuine enough since his eyes remain sad....) and that is heartbreaking actually. KT is tired of everything yet he keeps it to himself for the sake of his brother, who only gets to see his patiente side and smiling face. Now, I wonder how MY is going to contribute in getting that anger resentment and tiredness out of his system and hopefully heal him in her own unconventional ways ;))) I can't wait !

The dry spell has finally ended. I always started a drama with a lot of hope. But recently, nothing has been working for me. It seemed the same old story. I am sure they had a lovely story to tell but somehow it lacked the comfort I was looking for. You want to enjoy a beautiful craftsmanship! The art of story telling. Not just beautiful places/ faces! What a lovely 'story-telling' !

 

Just caught the first episode and loved it! I love the way it is shot, the warm colours despite the bleakness, the emptiness in the hearts of the characters. More please!

 

Oh and can we talk about KSH's calm presence and that serene smile? The abs did not go unnoticed in any way. Time to look up his previous dramas. 

I completely agree with you. And am a bit disgusted (ahem, as they said in the first episode :D ) by the reaction of some people in my country who watch kdramas, who say that this is the "typical Korean drama." I cannot see anything typical about it. The storyline, the visuals, the OST, the acting, the beautiful leads, the ideas (with the cartoons, for instance), the humour, etc, etc.

 

As for KSH, absolutely recommending that you take a look at his previous work. Won't disappoint. He never disappoints. :wub:

- I wonder what this Scent of the Soul MY is looking for could be? Empathy? Love?

 

Perhaps I should have put a note on this. Not having the "scent" of a soul means that she's lacking a soul, or perhaps an awareness of her soul. In order to convey a depth or a realness to something, make it more concrete, they'll sometimes say that it has the smell or the scent of something.

 

So in this case, it's a way of saying that even though she looks utterly perfect, that she's lacking a little something that makes her completely human, and since people are the ones who have souls, it's saying she's missing her soul. In non-poetic terms, its her inability to feel empathy for people and therefore treat everything amorally. That also ties into her clinical diagnoses, which a number of people seem to have an opinion on as to whether her diagnosis is correct or not, but that's not what I'm focusing on right now. Rather, it's the description that she comes across as souless/heartless/inhuman because of her psychological condition.

 

What I thought was interesting about her character description is that she does have a vulnerable side to her that she keeps hidden behind the outlandish styling. So, she may not be a true psychopath then.

 

The interaction that I"m really looking forward to is seeing ST interact with MY. ST idolizes MY, but he's also a gifted artist who has been doodling MY's fairy tales on his own. I'm curious to see how their relationship plays out, since I do think that MY and ST will have a relationship of some kind, even if it's not the romance that will develop between MY and KT. Still, I think both brothers are going to enter MY's life and change it, as she will change their lives.

Same here.

I think that precisely ST will play the vital role in MY showing her vulnerability even more. She has already started acting - during her book presentation. Of course, her actions were driven by her fascination with MT (or it seemed so), but still, she defended both brothers.

And yet, she did it her way - again my favourite contrasts. How MT faces injustice & how MY faces it.

 

In that sense, not sure whether we've mentioned it expressly in the thread but important point in the second episode was when MT instinctively grabbed MY's hand to "defend" her from the creepy journalist/critic. This is his way of "fighting" - first thinks of the person who is "attacked" & could be "the vulnerable victim". He grabbed her hand without a second thought, to keep her safe, to defend her; he did not start attacking the man first.

On the other hand, from what we have seen so far, MY does the complete opposite - she attacks directly, without a second thought. She attacked the father, the family at the presentation, the journalist. This also makes her expose herself - both directly & figurately speaking.

 

Interesting to see how this would develop. Would they change each other's perceptions and reactions?

There is nothing typical about this. The cinematography is stunning! Also, the way the story is being 'narrated' is such a delight! It's like slowly unwrapping a gift, the anticipation of unraveling something worth our time. This isn't going to be one of those feel-good dramas that you enjoy thoroughly and then forget. This ones going to comfort the soul. The theme of love and healing, acceptance is like chicken soup for the battered soul. There's time and space for such stories. I think it is not everybody's cup of tea. The topic of mental health itself is still a very 'hush hush' subject in society.  It will have it's own niche of followers who would give it the love that it deserves.

Exactly! Unlike other dramas where the plot is pretty much set from the get-go (e.g. CLOY with how SK and NK romance will resolve, TKEM with how Lee Lim can be defeated, HDL with Man-wol settling her own grudge so she can finally move on to afterlife), even if two episodes have already passed, it's still difficult to predict how this drama will go. We know that it's a healing drama, but because ASPD, PTSD, ASD, and other mental illnesses are in the play (along with a potential murder mystery), there's no way to clearly predict what will happen next.

 

It's Okay That's Love also tackles mental illnesses, but the main difference between IOTL and IOTNBO is the potential threat the the female protagonists poses against all the other characters in the universe. In a way, she is her own anti-hero, and because she explicitly does disturbing things (e.g. pushing a man down the stairs, pulling someone's hair, playing around with a knife) the viewers are torn between loving her character and disliking her actions. 

 

The fact that they chose to tread on dangerous waters already places this drama on a league of its own. With the appropriate story telling and character handling, I have no doubts that this will be one of those memorable dramas you can't help but rewatch. 

 

Kim Soo-hyun's chemistry with Seo Ye-jin is explosive, and it works so well. Contrary to other dramas, I think the romance in this one will be secondary. It only seems like it is the main focus because of the sexual tension from the two leads, but considering Kang-tae's character, even if he would fall for Mun-yeong's beauty, he doesn't strike me as the type to delve in a relationship with her -- not when he knows she is unstable and Sang-tae will come first.

 

These next seven weeks are going to be so stressful! I want to know how the story goes but at the same time, I don't want it to end because I just can't get enough of SYJ and KSH's visuals and chemistry.

Since this is a healing drama, I would definitely hope so. I'm really looking forward to MY, KT, and ST forming a family. JS will be close to them as well, but I really also want him to go find his own dreams once he sees his friends have finally found a safe home.

Agreed that society in general still has issues with mental illnesses and conditions. I think that's why there have been more dramas that tackle this subject, either explicitly or implicitly. And, it helps that these kinds of dramas need well established actors in the roles to draw viewers to them even if the viewers may not be comfortable with the subject matter.

Oooh. Nice observation. I liked IOTL as well, but the heroine in that drama was relatively "normal" despite having issues of her own, though she was the caretaker figure in that drama. It was really the male lead who has a number of psychiatric issues.

 

In this drama, the heroine herself is dealing with a number of clinical issues which cause her to do disturbing things as you've said. Additionally, other characters also have clinical issues including ASR, and they all have to figure out how to live and interact with society. The male lead also has issues, not only with caretaking, but the burden of having to literally become the man/caretaker/breadwinner of the family at a very young age with all the psychological trauma that can induce, not to mention the murder of their mother.

 

Really, if you take away all the pretty elements, e.g. cinematography, the visuals of the leads, etc., this is a pretty grim story that they're tackling. But already they have introduced some healing elements, as in the steadfast friendship shown by JS, the absolute love between ST and KT, while acknowledging the difficulties, as in KT's conflicted feelings of not having a life and resignation over it, MY's defense mechanisms.

 

This isn't a perfect drama, by any means, even if there could be such a thing. It's not necessarily meant to reflect the conflicts and issues that people go through every day in real life, especially if they are dealing with mental issues, either having them or caring for someone who does, but at least it brings the conversation to the foreground. And, so far, it's been a thoroughly fascinating and engaging story. Can't wait for the next episodes.

I am loving this drama! Finally had a chance to watch the first 2 episodes! Can’t help but feel a Tim Burton/Brothers Grimm vibe to this whole drama! 

This is my next party stop! :P

Seo Yeji and Kim Soohyun’s face and voice combination is crazy!! Seriously, everything about this drama is just crazy. I actually was amazed by Seo Yeji’s face, her makeup was so pretty too

[+230][-18]

 

[+87,-4]Seriously…. Isn’t it f***ing intersting how the male and female characters’ personalities -that are almost like a national rule- are reversed in this drama? I like how she’s flirting slyly with the male lead but he’s embarrassed about itㅜㅜ

 

[+31,-5]Seo Yeji’s face and voice are crazy. My mom doesn’t usually go like “pretty” or something like this when we watch dramas together, but this time, we both were just in awe of Seo Yeji’s beauty

 

[+35,-3]Where can I watch it?

 

[+25,-0]It’s so much fun! The leads chemistry is just insane!!ㅋㅋㅋㅋ

 

[+13,-0]I like the cast, I was just waiting for the story to see whether I should watch it or not, and I decided to watch it after seeing the 1st episode. It was just like a movie and I really liked Kim Soohyun and Seo Yeji’s combination. I recommend it for those who haven’t seen it yet!

 

[+8,-0]Kim Soohyun, aren’t you getting old? I don’t think there will be any awkwardness if he wears a school uniform

 

[+7,-0]Seo Yeji looks so pretty every time she smiles, Oh Jung Se is cute and Kim Soohyun looks f***ing coolㅠㅠㅠㅠㅠㅠ

 

[+6,-0]No but seriously, aren’t those visuals legendary?ㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋ Both of them reached God’s level of beauty!

 

[+5,-1]Woah, Oh Jung Se’s acting was really good ㅠㅠㅠguys, make sure to watch it! The leads are really amazing and the BGM was on point too!
