Okay, this is NOT what I was expecting especially since the first poster for tvN drama It’s Okay to Not be Okay had butterflies all over it. The first substantive preview is out and things are looking mighty sad and intense in It’s Okay land, complete with Kim Soo Hyun running away, more running away, talking about running away, and then Seo Ye Ji getting choked and living in a massive out of a gothic movie type baroque mansion complete with trailing long dress. I don’t quite get what I’m supposed to take away from this but it’s not the impression of a “healing” drama that I see in K-drama land (cue the perfect amazing It’s Okay, It’s Love as exemplar). I don’t think it’s bad that the tonal bent of this drama is more serious than I thought, mindset adjusted and still waiting happily for its arrival next month.
