tvN Drops First Teaser Sneak Peak at Kim Soo Hyun and Seo Ye Ji in K-drama It’s Okay to Not be Okay

I love Kim Soo Hyun and just realized upon seeing the sneak peek at his upcoming drama that he mainly has like two looks onscreen. Super dorky (Dream High, Producers, Secretly Greatly) or super suave (You From Another Star, Miss Granny, Hotel Del Luna). For upcoming tvN drama It’s Ok to Not Be Okay (Psycho, But It’s Okay) the look is super dorky with the mussed bowl cut, which once again tells us that his character is earnest and boyish. But add to that super depressed at his situation in life, with a mentally challenged older brother he has to take care of and working as an orderly at a mental hospital. I get the angst and the he definitely gives off that mood in the preview teaser which also showcases Seo Ye Ji looking like a children’s book writer holding a book with a whimsical garden backdrop behind her.

  1. It’s a brave decision to work with an unknown writer nim. But i hope this one works for him. He needs a good comeback drama after doing cameo in other popular dramas. I wish there would be 2nd season of hotel del luna with him as the male lead lols.

    Even tho i love him, but story is everything. I dont mind the low rating as long as the story is good. But it’s better getting high rating.

    Goodluck KSH. Fighting!!!

  2. I have a feeling this drama will have a strong start but will get lost trying to balance comedy with deep themes. I am hopeful though and will give it a shot.

  3. Looking forward to this. Come quick June!
    I wonder if we’ll get the compulsory post military shirtless scene? ?
    I know it’s been a while since he’s been out but this IS his first drama in a leading role since army right. ??

  4. Doesn’t look like a high profile, or big budget drama and i’m so looking forwards to it. I like the new title, not to mention the cast, love love both actors. It many not have huge hype or rating later but i hope it’ll be a meaningful and healing drama ^^

  5. I’ve enjoyed most of KSH’s work so i’ll trust his choice. Plus i love Seo Ye Ji and the other cast. Dramagod, pls be good to our seo hyunnie.

  6. In looks maybe but not in character. He may have similar dorky hair style in Dream High, Producer, and his cover-up character in Secretly, Greatly, but that is how far its similarities go. Character wise they are totally different dorkiness. Samdong is the dreamer, Baekseongchan is innocently love struck, and Dongu is disguised as a fool. The same thing goes with the swave. They mabe Similar in looks but the highly intellectual with super power Do Min Joon is very much different from the playboy vibe of Mr. Park and the mysterious Bluemoon. You may add the different kind of suave of the street smart gangster Jang Tae Yong and skillful superspy Won Ryoo-wan. His Dorky look in his upcoming drama, I think will be that of a beaten yet fighting life kind of man.

  7. We’ve waited long enough? Im sure “It’s Ok To Not Be Ok” (Psycho But It’a Ok) will be a good drama. Again, you’ve chosen this vehicle instead of formula, run of the will romcoms. You’re one brave actor. But please, treat us, your fans to some romcoms ala MLFTS. And yes, pls do more dramas/movies!!!
