I can’t complain that It’s Okay, It’s Love is pretty much love at first sight for me, other than wishing it was a Mon-Tues drama so I could spread out the watching enjoyment. There’s still a long ways to go for this drama and the last work of the PD-writer combo in That Winter, The Wind Blows was also a immediate winner for me that sputtered to a drawn out tedium. It’s such a pleasure watching the cinematography, the colors and the energy all lending to the vibrancy of the oddball world of characters. It’s probably a psychiatrist’s nightmare to watch the drama turn the medical field into eccentric quirks and even made-for-TV debate not to mention doctors really skewering their ethical boundaries all over the place. At the same time I cut this drama a lot of slack because it’s daring and confident so I’ll wait and see where it ultimately leads me.
The super kissy drama still above with Jo In Sung and Gong Hyo Jin is really less spoilery than the typical kiss still which usually heralds some monumental shift in the OTP’s relationship. Here I can say it probably means nothing other than Jae Yeol being his usual boundary-crossing self while Hae Soo gets some unwanted skinship from an even more unwanted source. This drama has been pretty adult in tackling relationship boundaries and hashing out emotional commitment issues so an early kiss isn’t going to manipulate emotions out of me. The second OST has been released featuring Davichi singing the title track along with an official MV that’s worth watching because it contains lots of scenes from upcoming episodes. I’m most excited about the overseas scenes in Okinawa which won’t be shown until the middle episodes but the snippets already look breathtakingly beautiful. It’s a can’t miss if you’re watching IOIL and are enjoying it so far.
