On January 9, a representative of Jo In Sung’s agency disclosed to a Korean media outlet, “Jo In Sung was offered a role in ‘It’s Okay, It’s Love (working title).’ We’ve only received the synopsis.”
A representative of Gong Hyo Jin’s agency also stated, “It is true she has been offered a role and is looking over it.”
“It’s Okay, It’s Love” will be the first Korean psychiatric drama. It will portray the reality of the lives and love of modern day people who live with psychological burdens. It will attempt to give an honest and serious answer to the question, “What do you do when your heart gets a cold, or gets cancer, or gets diabetes?”
Jo In Sung is looking over the male lead role of Jang Jae Yeol, a mystery writer and a radio DJ who suffers from obsessive-compulsive neurosis. If he confirms the role, he will be working once again with Noh Hee Kyung, the writer and Kim Kyu Tae, the director behind “That Winter, The Wind Blows.” This is also one of the reasons why he is looking over the role optimistically.
Gong Hyo Jin is looking over the character of Ji Hye Soo, a first year fellow in the psychiatric department at a university hospital. She chooses psychiatry for the appeal of not having to work overtime at night and not having to conduct any surgeries. However, her life changes after she meets Jang Jae Yeol.
The drama is already receiving much interest and anticipation for the fact that writer Noh Hee Kyung will be in charge of the script. Industry insiders describe her as “an alchemist of language.” Details of when the drama will premiere have not been decided yet. Stay tuned for more updates!
