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

Recommended Posts

I also noted that in both instances, the sleep paralysis happened as Moon Young was sleeping on her back. I checked online and found that sleeping on your back increases the chances of having a sleep paralysis incident. It also involves hallucinations that cause fear, so I think the "Mother" hovering over her bed and throughout this entire scene is a hallucination. I love this attention to detail.

Thanks for noting the sleep paralysis, it's just one of the many, many layers in this drama.

 

Interesting observation about sleeping on your back & having hallucinations, didn't know that. I sleep almost always on my chest. :D 

However, since you mention it, it's a super important detail that yes, KMY was seeing her mother hovering over her but once MKT entered the room, he leaned over KMY too. Honestly, since her mother was threatening that she'd kill the "prince" too, I expected the ghost to do something to MKT or at least be present next to him. But the ghost seemed to completely disappear once he came closer to KMY and hugged her. Which makes me think that MKT will not only psychologically save KMY but, in some way, physically too - he will be the one having the mental and physical strength to stand against the ghosts and demons in KMY's head and life.

 

Yet, the ghost kinda "appeared" around MST - the room's door opened and closed when he was passing by. And he followed it, so it might have been some kind of invitation.

 

Or another possible theory... only those with some psychological conditions "see" or "feel" the ghost - hence KMY's hallucinations or what MST noticed. Which makes me go back to the fact that MKT will be the only one capable to fight those.

p/s: there’s one thing I was wondering, in the interview where KSH was asked to draw what's inside KT's brain, they mentioned his “future bride” (the engsub said so idk), meaning KT’s wish of finding the love of his life right?

 

AH THIS INTERVIEW. It was really hard to comprehend this  because I don't know if it's Moon-young or Seo Yeji OR Kang-tae or Kim Soohyun speaking. I don't know if they're being themselves or their respective characters. 

 

Anyway, back to "future bride". I did see an interview with that translation, but KSH also puts "director". I think SYJ also pointed it out. And as a biased viewer, I had to think about whose brain it really represents: Soo-hyun or Kang-tae??? (I'll save my thoughts for the other thread. Thank goodness, we have two, or this will be a huge mess of shipping characters/actors and the actual plot discussion.)

 

Either way, I'm just glad that this is a drama where we don't have to spend time trying to figure out if the attraction is present OR to whom that attraction is directed. We're just watching how their relationship would progress while unraveling what on the earth happened all those years ago.

 

P.S. There's a fan who saw the drama being shot and Seo Yeji was wearing a school uniform. I'm guessing we're going to get a flashback when she was in HS :D

Speaking of sleep paralysis, I used to get it frequently and some years back my therapist at the time gave me a great tip for breaking out of it fast. When it happens, close your eyes really tight (to avoid seeing a disturbing image) and focus on wiggling your toes until your muscles wake up.  It works like a charm!

So good to learn such tips. Thanks a lot, @softestfairy!

 

Something I just noted on twitter but didn't pay attention to in the episodes:

If she was a psychopath, she would have no problems hurting others but she doesn't.  

Well of course not all psychopaths will turn up as murderers anyway. Some survive well like normal people with good family support.  

 

I believe that the core of Mun Yeong is good. In the most critical moments, her actions have shown that she does have a conscience. In both instances where she used the “should I or should I not” method to determine if she should help the Moon brothers, they landed on “not”. Despite that, she still saved them which makes me think that she can differentiate what is right or wrong or at least understand what a good human being should do. She also saved the little girl from her mentally ill father so it seems like she is capable of helping people other than the Moon brothers. It is her mother who has planted in her mind that she is a “monster” and conditioned her to believe it. In the preview for the next episode, we hear Gang Tae tell Mun Yeong that she did well. I think these words will be one of the pivotal moments in kick-starting her healing process - she is capable of good. So, I agree that when patients are provided access to resources and support, mental health issues may be managed.

Very insightful post @africandramalover

Did the writer want us to contrast the two sleep scenes? I don't know. I also don't remember the specifics of the circumstances that set off the first sleep paralysis episode, so if someone would be so kind as to make a comparison, I would be happy.

 

 

I checked episode 3 which is the last time we saw her have sleep paralysis.  That was the first night she returned to her home after KT rejects her offer go out together after work.  In the car on her drive to the castle she hallucinates images of her mother and almost crashes into a deer.  Later on in the castle whilst she is asleep someone (her mother?)  narrates the story of sleeping beauty whilst making their way to MY's bedroom...then we see MY wake up suffering sleep paralysis with her mother hovering over her.

The fact that ST continues to repeat "he (KT) is a coward" demonstrates just how insightful and self-aware ST is - seems to me that he very likely recognizes KT's "cowardice" when it comes to addressing his needs and desires head on, whether it is living a life he actually wants to live, pursuing MY, etc. We've seen time and time again that ST is actually very observant, especially when it comes to KT. His laser focused goal to buy an RV / camping van for KT further reflects his observant nature towards KT - in this case, KT's fatigue of moving.

 

I think KT's ability to put on a show / seem happy does not actually fool either MY or ST - only himself.

One question I keep wanting to ask but forget - Though MY was not encouraged to have friends why did her parents send her to school? Why not just homeschooling?

I keep wondering if she hasnt been back to the cursed castle in 20 years then when did her mom pass away and when was the father hospitalised. How was she brought up? She obviously did not stay in the small town for much longer than GT as her mom passed away when she was young?

 

@bebebisous33 i do not know who you were answering to but head nurse met MY when MY was interviewed and asked to give classes by the director. I dont think head nurse is the mum.

 

The thing about plastic surgery was intriguing. 

 

Still catching up with the posts but at times i am enjoying the show so much that I just want to go where it wants to take me :)

 

I hope they continue creating the magic that keeps us entertained :)

Yes, there is a long gap there that we do not know yet.    We only know that MY left her elementary school from the conversation  she had with JR in the earlier episode.  So something must have happened at that time to her parents.  If both were unavailable to bring her up and she doesn't have any other family then maybe she ended up in an orphanage or something similar (this is just an assumption) ... This leads to other questions that I have to patiently wait for the answers in future episodes.

.  While I was searching, I have found that in AsianWiki under the  additional cast the name of  Do Hee Jae ( Moon Young’s mother) under that was mentioned the names if actress Woo Jung Won. I don’t know how to post the actress picture but I guess they have the same smile. What do you think? 

 

You're smart.  They put it as additional cast. They have to find someone who looks similar to MY if they're going to use that card as for the reason why her father wanted to harm her.  So we're going to see her later.  Thanks for the info.

I think MY’s mom is dead. Died in the cellar.  My theory is that MY’s mother killed GT’s mom (either by accident or intentionally).  Her father found out about it.  Locked her up in the cellar.  Either he killed her (ala BlueBeard) or she killed herself (ala Madame Butterfly). MY found the body.  That’s why everyone else thinks MY’s mother just disappeared but MY says she’s dead.  Her dad thinks MY is her mom which is why he tried to strangle her.  These pics were interesting.

Rose motif on hairbrush.  Like the rose in the glass cloche in opening credits.  Beauty and the Beast? Little Prince?

Then this shot.  Beautifully framed.  As he embraces her. She grips the edge of his shirt.  As their hands entwine, it forms a heart.

Her mom has a penchant to dress in vintage dresses with ornate sleeves.  I would imagine in ST’s eyes, she looks for all intensive purposes very much like a butterfly?

------------------

Some of the mysteries were unfolded but the much bigger suspense is still yet to be revealed, which continues to draw the curiosity of the viewers.Furthermore, the revelations of the past has given of some valid reasoning on why these people are the way they are. Asides from the storyline, the cinematography and direction is consistent in this drama. It is a great visual delight and I like every bit of it and I am sure that other drama lovers do too. In this intense narrative, I also like  some of the comedic relief that comes from the supporting cast members

Seo Yeji is SO GOOD in this role. She combined the cold, leering sociopath, the alluring mature woman, and the vulnerable little girl all together into this unforgettable and irresistible character.

One thing I realize is that at the end of ep.2 after MY's assistant sent her Gang Tae's information & learning he is her "prince" from childhood, she was fully determined to run after GT knowing that their childhood romance was a fail. So now that they met as adults, she strongly believes that they can be together again & nothing can separate them. I just LOVE this childhood trope & how it's being used in the drama. It's uniquely different & refreshing. Makes their romance even more beautiful & intriguing. 

 

I really can't wait for the next chapter as GT & MY's feelings for each other will grow more deeper. GT will not become a coward that he was back then. He'll stay & fight to be with MY at all cost. He's been resistant with his feelings since childhood & now that they live together, we'll see more sweet moments of them. Can't wait to see them become truly happy. Of course, I'm anticipating the healing process as well. 

 

What breaks & warms my heart is that all this time, MY has been protecting GT from being killed or hurt by her delusional mother. And yet, her mom still haunts her in her nightmares even after death. Notice how her mom always appears to remind MY about her "prince" & that he'll be killed by her mom if he comes to save her. Knowing MY, she needs to be saved from this hell hole. She won't ever let go of her prince. Her mind says "let him go" (to protect him) but her heart says "hold onto him" (she needs him). I wonder if she's been waiting for him all this time since 20 years ago?

Good questions and theories you guys brought up here. there seems to have many mysteries of MY past, like when she mentioned about her mom being in a car(?) accident, the details she gave were so real, make me think her mom is really dead but MY trauma being so deep, her mom is practically still 'alive' in her. I also wonder how did she live all these years and with whom. Hopefully the show will shed light more on that. I don't think the highschool uniform int they met that time, bc it'd be too coincidental and a bit illogical ^^, If not i wonder again how MY makes GT wear that lol anyone watched 'my sassy girl' the movie? there was similar scene. I already saw some comments saying to be uncomfortable with it, well personally to me it's like cosplay, and we don't know the context yet so maybe better make it sth it's not ^^ 

 

About the head nurse, she's growing more and more suspicious to me, i hope i'm wrong cause i like her character at 1st. But the scene with MY's dad and her reactions to him talking about 'MY's mom' were very odd to me. and how she didn't talk about it to the director after. From the few scenes we see the mysterious figure stalking MY and GT, it looks like her too. She has acknowledge on mental disorders and if she's revealed to be the real 'psycho' here wow it's gonna shock more than one o_o

Others that are still questions to me: 

1) We never knew if the murderer got caught after KT &ST ran away to another city.

2) There was a picture of MY's mum and dad in ep 1.That women in the OK Psychiatric Hospital claiming to be her mum, doesn't look like the woman in the picture. 

3) MY's mum was a crime novel writer, and maybe some of the stories were based on true stories which we may be able to find some relevance and evidence through her stories. She maybe the killer or either had split personality as a writer and killer, or she maybe a person who was forced and locked up to write stories if not she be murdered as well. 

 

Gosh, the new theme makes bolding the text kind of pointless.

 

I like your tie-in to MY's mom's occupation. I'm gonna make a wild guess and say maybe mom went so far as to commit real life crimes as basis for her crime novels?

this is such a rapunzel reference! in most versions of rapunzel iirc the prince who comes to save her is hurt by the witch who drops him on the thorns at the bottom of the tower (and in the disney version mother gothel stabs? flynn rider) BUT then rapunzel heals the prince with her tears, right?

 

so here the witch (moon yeong's mother) wants to hurt the prince (gangtae) who would come to save rapunzel (moon yeong), who in turn heals him at the end. which i think (if my theories are correct) is a beautiful summary/overview of the whole series. :heart:

 

((((and if moon yeong's mother is really the one who killed gangtae's mother (as many have speculated) then that takes the witch hurting the prince to a whole new level omg.)))))

 

ALSO tears are such an iconic way of healing somebody. the image of being able to heal someone's hurts through your own pain is such an absolutely and heartrendingly compelling idea.
