It appears as though tvN’s most-awaited romantic fantasy drama It’s Okay to Not Be Okay is aiming to fire up the warm anticipation of its viewers, as it just released its third teaser!
Starring Kim Soo-hyun (The Producers) and Seo Ye-ji (Lawless Lawyer), It’s Okay to Not Be Okay tells the extraordinary love story between psychiatric ward health worker Moon Kang-tae (Kim Soo-hyun) and famous children’s book author Go Moon-young (Seo Ye-ji).
In the half-minute teaser, Go Moon-young tells an eerie story in the background. With a deep and mesmerizing voice, she says, “I hate flowers with petals that fall one by one.” While Moon Kang-tae is shown lying on a bed of red petals, she continues, “I like magnolias because all its petals fall off at once. I like the sight of that.”
A glimpse of her aggressive personality is then revealed when she grabs a woman by the hair out of anger. She also boldly reaches for Kang-tae’s half-naked body while uttering, “Wow!” followed by scenes where the two share an evident playful chemistry. She goes on to read, “Mom, I’m wish to be a pretty witch,” as if describing herself, while she is shown mysteriously walking alone on a snowy night, heading towards the dark woods. To Moon-young’s amusement, the child sitting on her lap starts wailing and runs away.
Her parting statement goes “This storybook explains the reality that one can never go against their fate.” She holds Kang-tae by the nape and pulls him closer to her while the caption flashes, “There is nothing complicated about fate. We are destined.” The video closes with the two standing face to face in a picturesque scene with petals falling from every direction.
Moon Kang-tae has lost interest in love after the harsh ways of life stripped him of any hope of finding personal happiness in an intimate relationship with another person. At a young age, he has already taken on the responsibility of fending for himself and his autistic brother Moon Sang-tae (Oh Jung-se, Hot Stove League) following their parents’ untimely death. His simple life gets shaken up, however, when the socially-inept Go Moon-young appears in the picture and sparks a strange but undeniable romantic bond with him.
It’s Okay to Not Be Okay, also credited as Psycho but It’s Okay, is directed by Park Shin-woo of Encounter (2018–2019) and penned by Jo Yong of Jugglers (2017–2018). It is roughly two weeks away from its premiere on June 20 and is scheduled as a Saturday-Sunday drama that will air at 9:00 p.m. KST.
