Psycho but It’s Okay, also known as It’s Okay to Not Be Okay, centers on the lives of psychiatric ward employee Moon Kang-tae (Kim Soo-hyun) who has lost interest in romantic love due to his childhood trauma and famous children’s book writer Go Moon-young (Seo Ye-ji) who has never been in an intimate relationship as a result of her antisocial personality disorder. They meet by chance and begin healing each other’s emotional bruises.
Posted on the official tvN Drama YouTube channel, the 15-second video opens with the clicking sound of a mechanical typewriter while a mystical music-box melody is playing in the background. Characters start to surface on a piece of paper and assemble into the phrase “a little strange romantic comedy about love.” At the same time, a person’s hand is scribbling out characters from the word “love” using a purple-inked fountain pen. They then cut out some of the letters from the original phrase using a small craft knife and put them together to form the word “psycho.”
The last seconds of the clip unveil the captivating beauty of Go Moon-young, who appears to be in a dreamy garden, her gaze transfixed on the mysterious red book that she is holding. Then, the final moment features a serious Moon Kang-tae who seem to be lost in deep thought.
The drama aims to make the hearts of its audience flutter as they come to witness how a man who denies love and a woman who does not know love defy their fears by choosing to give it a shot, finding their souls and identities in the process.
Psycho But It’s Okay is directed by Park Shin-woo of Encounter (2018–2019) and written by Jo Yong, who penned the drama Jugglers (2017–2018). It is set to air every Saturday and Sunday at 9:00 p.m. KST beginning June 20, replacing When My Love Blooms.
