One of the dilemmas a Kdrama fan goes through is choosing the next drama to watch. A lot of factors goes into that final choice. Personally, current mood is my main basis of choosing what to watch next.So finally I decided to watch It’s Okay It’s Love. It has been on my “to watch list” for sometime now.
This drama is about a bestselling writer named Jang Jae-yeol played by the dashing Jo In Sung. He is obsessive compulsive. Behind his cheery exterior is a dark past. He meets Ji Hae Soo (Gong Hyo Jin) who is a psychiatrist. She is career driven and suffers from anxiety when it comes to intimacy.
The drama is about these two finding love while battling their inner demons. A great ensemble cast who also suffers from different mental health issues.
I felt that the drama tried to cover a lot of the disorders under DSM (Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders). If there is one thing that the drama successfully conveyed to viewers is the reality that those who suffer from metal illness should not be shunned. We should be able to put ourselves in their shoes. We are all the same.We all crave for love and understanding. The issues the drama tackled is indeed quite serious but it was able to achieve balance with the fun banters among the characters. It was a good play of light and heavy which I definitely like.
The chemistry between Gong Hyo Jin and Jo In Sung was pretty amazing!!!!And their love story sends a message of hope for everyone. Lee Gwang Soo’s and Sung Dong-il’s character made the drama work. Having these four under one roof was something I enjoyed watching. This is a definite must watch.
This drama reminded me of a line from the movie Girl Interrupted. The line goes, “Crazy isn’t broken, it’s you and me, amplified.”
