[Drama 2020] It's Okay not to be Okay, 사이코지만 괜찮아

Recommended Posts

I really really love how seamless this drama is.  Episode 2 the lady in red shoes.  The scene changes are effortlessly blended with clever story telling.  The way the bus ride moved from the past recounted in the mind of KT (his mother’s death) and then back to the present with him sending JuRi off at the bus terminal.  It’s just beautifully done.

 

The world in the mind of a person with mental issues is just as real as that of a “normal” person.  It’s just a different perspective.  Someone with autism would find all the sounds and other sensory stimuli which a normal person can just block out, totally overwhelming.  They don’t have the ability to shut it out.  Everything is louder, bigger, more dangerous.  But on the flip side, it is also beautifully simple.  When ST was moving through the real world and he sees umbrellas, balloons, raindrops.  All real and visible to him but not us.  Similarly MY, she just wanted to pick KT up like an object to keep in her pocket.  It was a possibility her mind could conceivably entertain.

 

MY made choices with total objectivity.  Do I save him?  Do I not?  Twice she did this.  Once when KT was in the water as a child.  And again at the book signing (she stepped in).  Loved the Parasite references when the parents and child did the interview.  Were they the parasite?  Leeching off the popularity of MY for their shot in the limelight?

 

KT is like an obsession to MY.  Like the story about the girl and the red shoes.  She was so obsessed with it that nothing else mattered.  Even when her legs were chopped off, they continued to dance with the shoes.

 

I am looking forward to Ep3 and more reveals about the butterfly... is it a tattoo of the murderer that ST remembers?

Very interesting so far, it is keeping intrigued and its slightly odd twists and turns.

Lots of tantrums and yelling and screaming by everyone it seems. haha

 

I will have to say, Ep2, this is such a hot outfit or ensemble that she is wearing. It kills me. :love:

Hello all!

 

I've already watched first two eps & I think i just found a drama to watch after a long time! I really love both the leads & Oh Jung Se, specially! Kim Soo Hyun is so handsome & fresh! Seo Ye Ji is something special I've seen in a K-drama lately! I love the fact that she is not naive & weak & all that! She has a strong personality to begin with! :) So I am looking forward to see how she falls for him & vise versa!

 

And adding some love to this thread.. Our new stress reliever! :wub:

I was confused with the title as it was similar to the Gong Hyo Jin's It's Okay, That's Love.:lol: 

 

I guess this is the drama that Soo Hyun did to appease Hotel Del Luna fans?! The vibe's similar.. I read how most felt it was like a Tim Burton movie. For me it was very much like the movie The Shape of Water. And even the TV series Pushing Daisies. Anyway all have this dark humor as a common thread.

 

I live for Ye Ji's sass and wardrobe. Man Wol has competition.:P LoL at his friend who told him he looked like the Joker when he smiled!

After watching episode 2 and thinking back, so wait is Mun Yeong’s mother alive or dead?
 

When the nurse went to get her signature for the father’s surgery, they had a conversation and she said, “but your mother is alive” and MY goes to declare that she is an orphan (more like they are dead to me) but I think she could still be alive but not able to move physically? 

 

Maybe ... since she described her mother as 

 

"physically died a long time ago, however her soul is still alive" --> could also be in a coma?

 

"I registered her death a long time ago" --> She might also be hospitalised somewhere..

 

We're still in the first week .... a lot more backstory need to be told ....  

 

p.s I need to find a longer version of characters' description. @stroppyse could you please translate this info about MY's mother. Thank you.

I love MYs outfits so far especially the one when she in the book signing. Both of these drama have very good wardrobes. Man Wol definitely have competition. I kinda want IU to have a cameo in the drama too.

I would say Seo Ye Ji has a womanly, sexy vixen aura....IU had a Confessions of a shopaholic aura...but I still don't see how this compares to Del Luna...the setting, subject matter all very different and this is a risk. It may not pay off in ratings.

First Impression: It's Okay Not To Be Okay

It's Okay Not Be Okay premiered this week! It's Kim Soo-hyun's comeback drama after his military discharge. And after teasing us with some memorable cameos in recent dramas, it's time for him to reclaim the limelight as one of the top Hallyu stars of his generation. The hype is real with this one, especially after the news broke that he will share this spotlight with the ever gorgeous Seo Ye-ji! Who wouldn't get stoked, right?

What a very interesting first two episodes! I knew from the teasers that it promises a dark romance between the main leads, but I wasn't expecting it to be THIS dark. It was borderline disturbing! The first episode was meant to introduce very vividly how famous children's book author Ko Moon-yeong (Seo Ye-ji) has anti-social personality. Her books feature dark fairy tales with nightmare-eating witches as heroines, and betrayal as the main theme. She was presented as the monster who draws people away. The opening was laid out as fantasy, so the audience might expect it to be one, but the watching experience was essentially the same with Moon-yeong's children's books. The drama was parallel to her own book which was supposed to be light but a bit grotesque for the taste apparently.

With hints of Tim Burton-style graphics and a slight touch of romantic comedy in the first two episodes, this new series is made to make us feel intrigued and disturbed. It presents a thin line between the rational mind and hysteria. It's meant to challenge the viewers about morals and mental stability. I don't know if it's a good thing or something to be worried about, but I think if you're bothered by just watching the little Moon-yeong tear that live butterfly apart, you're still normal. Albeit too dark for some people, this drama is still refreshing to watch because it's different.

My favorite part of the drama would have to be our heroine (or anti-hero as it seems), Ko Moon-yeong. She is a no non-sense femme fatale who doesn't hesitate to do whatever she wants to do without worrying about other people's judgment. I know this could be a double-edged sword as this attitude could also be her downfall, her anti-social behavior opens the eyes of the audience to the mindset of people who screams of darkness and chaos. Her aura is very appealing and her presence is so extra. Moon-yeong's childhood background was super depressing, it totally makes sense she ended up that way.

The hero, Moon Kang-tae (Kim Soo-hyun) is a mysterious one. One of the most striking lines he made in the first two episodes was his description of Moon-young's anti-social personality. He doesn't recognize it as a disorder,  and tells her that's she was just born with it. We also got to know his backstory early on in the series. He and his brother Moon Sang-tae (Oh Jung-se) were orphaned after their mother was apparently killed by a still unidentified person. Sang-tae, the only witness to the killing, has autism. He was certain that their mom was killed by the "butterflies" which also prompted the brothers not to stay in the same place for a long time. They keep relocating every now and then. What's more interesting is that Sang-tae's favorite author is Ko Moon-yeong. What's with her books that draw him? Does he sense that the writer is an outcast, too? Moon-yeong and Sang-tae are yet to meet each other properly, so their inevitable interaction is something worth anticipating.

Hello chingu,

 

Finally I have a drama to get me back here to discuss since Hospital Playlist. I am truly into this drama after its first two episodes. The acting is amazing with attractive cast, but I have to mention that the story is telling in a truly clever way.

 

Awaiting for new episode :D

Thanks, @hwonhwon_stv:phew:

No but he really is dashing in his regular clothes. :wub:

Again the contrasts. She was dressed in a multi-coloured & ecscentric dress; he was dressed in jeans and plain shirt. And still, he looked effortlessly beautiful. *sigh*

Did I expect to watch this? No.

Did I ignore it for some days? Yes.

Did I watch it? Yes.

Repeatedly? Y e s.

Did I love it? HELL YES.

 

And no, I did NOT definitely expect to love this. This took me by surprise, not just because I’m not a big fan of KSH. But good lord, the twists and turns and the very unexpectance of everything that’s happening in one episode. It’s blowing off every kdrama trope and I’m here for it.

 

Im serious, I never expected to love it and wait for it. I’m really blown away. Two episodes down, fourteen more to go. I get butterflies (heh) just by imagining the best sex they would have—

 

I mean-

 

Its blatantly obvious that the leads have super thick chemistry that you could cut with a knife (heh). I could watch them eye-bang each other every episode for days. But when it really happens. Maaaaan. Just imagine.

By the way, I've been rewatching some parts of the two episodes, and this quote stuck in my mind:

 

"Hurtful, painful memories. Memories of deep regrets. Memories of hurting others and being hurt. Memories of being abandoned. Only those with such memories buried in their hearts can become stronger, more passionate, and emotionally flexible. And only those can attain happiness."

 

That's it. That's what this drama is all about.

And I really hope that sums it up - all of characters have their drama. Hurting others, being hurt, being abandoned, running from something/someone, being "cowards," etc. KMY said it to MKT - because the memory was not positive, it would stay in his heart longer. Yes, it will; it will outgrow it, especially when he realises that those eyes do not only remind him of a girl he used to know & like, but are her eyes. And he'll become stronger, more passionate, and emotionally flexible - will not run any more. And she will really get her "safety pin," in the same terms - her heart will overcome the hurt & will reveal the not-so-villainy side of hers.

And then they will get their happy ending. Fingers crossed! :w00t:
