First still cuts from ‘Psycho but It’s Okay’ unveil lead actor Kim Soo-hyun’s noble transformation

Psycho but It’s Okay, the comeback project of actor Kim Soo-hyun, has shared still cuts from the drama, showing the lead star’s evolution into a virtuous psychiatric ward health worker.

The romantic fantasy series revolves around the lives of Moon Kang-tae (Kim Soo-hyun), employee at a mental care institution 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. Fate destined them to meet and soon, the two begin healing each other’s emotional wounds.

In the first photo, Moon Kang-tae is shown fixated at something from afar, with a concerned expression on his face. He is all dressed up in his uniform, complete with a pen and an ID card hanging down from his breast pocket.


The second snap reveals Kang-tae tending to his patient, who is on a wheelchair. Even if he is enduring a lot in life, he still exudes a contented and fulfilled aura while doing his duties. This could be because he is someone who chooses not to engage in a romantic relationship with anyone for fear that it may only add troubles to his already tough situation.


In the last still cut, Kang-tae’s perseverance is evident. He appears not to mind wheeling a seemingly heavy wagon of boxes as part of his daily tasks. This can be considered nothing though, compared to the weight put upon his shoulders when he started working for himself and his autistic older brother at a young age, following the death of their parents.


Kim Soo-hyun has left a lasting impression for his critically-praised portrayals in dramas such as The Moon Embracing the Sun (2012), My Love From the Star (2013–2014), and The Producers (2015). The actor has recently appeared in cameo roles for Hotel del Luna (2019) and Crash Landing on You (2019–2020) after getting discharged from the military in July 2019, but this current project marks his highly awaited official comeback to the small screen since 2015. His leading lady, Seo Ye-ji, is a popular actress herself, renowned for her performances in the series Save Me (2017) and Lawless Lawyer (2018).

Described as an odd fantasy story of love and healing, Psycho but It’s Okay is helmed by director Park Shin-woo (Encounter) and written by Jo Yong (Jugglers). It is set to air every Saturday and Sunday at 9:00 p.m. KST beginning June 20, after the final episode of When My Love Blooms.
