Tuesday’s Teaser: It’s Okay to Not Be Okay

Korean drama It’s Okay to Not Be Okay (2020) stars Kim Soo Hyun and Seo Ye Ji as the main couple, with other main leads Park Kyu Young and Oh Jung Se starts airing on June 20, 2020. Most of the romantic drama seems to revolve around the inmates and workers around and in a psychiatric ward. This is the type of drama I would like to see from Thailand, with characters who have mental illness (and yes, I realize most screaming nangrai’s and parents could qualify as such). They’re getting there, there was one lakorn I remember about Wai Sab Saraek Kad (2016) involving a female psychologist, but it’s not subbed unfortunately.

It’s Okay to Not Be Okay (2020) Synopsis: The story of a community health worker at a psychiatric ward who lives on 1.8 million won (approximately $1,520) a month and a storybook writer suffering from an antisocial personality disorder. A man who denies love and a woman who doesn’t know love defy fate and fall in love, finding their souls and identities in the process. Moon Kang Tae is a community health worker at a psychiatric ward. Moon Kang Tae is a man who was blessed with everything including a great body, smarts, ability to sympathize with others, patience, ability to react quickly, stamina, and more. Meanwhile, Ko Moon Young is a popular writer of children’s literature, but she is extremely selfish, arrogant, and rude. (Source: Soompi koreandrama.org)
