Upcoming romance series Psycho but It’s Okay on May 8 has shared photos taken during its first script reading session led by Kim Soo-hyun and Seo Ye-ji.
Also known as It’s Okay to Not Be Okay, the new series tells the story of a psychiatric ward employee (Kim Soo-hyun), who has lost interest in romantic love due to his childhood trauma, and a popular children’s book writer (Seo Ye-ji) who has never been in a relationship as a result of her antisocial personality disorder. They meet by chance and end up healing each other’s wounded heart.
Director Park Shin-woo kicked off the script reading by stating that he will do his best in helping the actors bring their characters to life freely and creatively. Additionally, he expressed that he wants everyone to collaborate in making the drama.
According to the audience, Kim Soo-hyun earned praise from the crowd for his earnest portrayal of the lonely protagonist Moon Kang-tae. The actor became fully immersed in the character who had to become the breadwinner of his family after he and his brother lost their parents at a very young age. This will be Kim’s comeback drama after the 2015 series The Producers. Many fans await his return to the small screen since he got discharged from the military in 2019.
Meanwhile, lead actress Seo Ye-ji also delightfully surprised the attendees with her convincing transformation into Go Moon-young, an antisocial person but a successful children’s book writer. Seo previously captivated viewers for her role in the 2018 legal thriller Lawless Lawyer.
Actors Oh Jung-se (Stove League) and Park Gyu-young (Nokdu Flower) also attended the table read. Oh will take on the role of Moon Sang-tae, Kang-tae’s autistic older brother who is a huge fan of Moon-young’s books while Park will play a nurse named Nam Joo-ri.
Other supporting actors who were present at the event include Kim Joo-heon, Kim Mi-kyung, Kim Chang-wan, Jang Young-nam, Kang Ki-doong, Lee Eol, Park Jin-joo, and Jang Gyu-ri.
The producers of the drama described the script reading as a period filled with laughter and heart-warming romantic tension as the cast showed charming synergy and held nothing back in portraying their characters.
Psycho but It’s Okay is set to air on tvN every Saturday and Sunday beginning this June, replacing Yoo Ji-tae and Lee Bo-young’s When My Love Blooms. It will also become available for streaming on Netflix.
