Watch: Kim Soo Hyun + Seo Ye Ji See Past Each Other’s Tough Acts In New Preview Of “It’s Okay To Not Be Okay”
tvN’s upcoming drama “It’s Okay to Not Be Okay” has shared a new sneak peek of its first two episodes!
Described as a “healing romance that resembles a storybook fantasy,” the new drama will tell the story of Moon Kang Tae, a community health worker at a psychiatric ward who doesn’t have time for love (played by Kim Soo Hyun), and Go Moon Young, a successful children’s book author who suffers from antisocial personality disorder and has never known love (played by Seo Ye Ji).
In the newly released preview for the upcoming drama, the two polar opposites see through each other’s hardened exteriors. Moon Kang Tae says of Go Moon Young, “She’s not crazy. She was just born like that,” while Go Moon Young mysteriously asks him, “So which one am I?” Watching him walk away from afar, Go Moon Young says dreamily in voice-over, “He’s pretty. I want him.”
The preview goes on to show brief flashes of the emotional hardships faced by both characters, as well as a glimpse of the loving relationship between Moon Kang Tae and his autistic older brother Moon Sang Tae (played by Oh Jung Se). Moon Kang Tae gets emotional as he tells his brother, “Hyung, I don’t need this house or a car or money.”
Meanwhile, Go Moon Young sees past Moon Kang Tae’s shell, shrewdly observing, “It’s not that you’re avoiding it. You’re probably just running away,” adding, “I can see that you want to be adored.” She then boldly tells him, “Moon Kang Tae, give yourself to me.”
“It’s Okay to Not Be Okay” will premiere on June 20 at 9 p.m. KST. In the meantime, check out the new preview below!
