It’s hard to keep track of so many production teams and I didn’t fully connect the visuals of just premiered tvN drama It’s Okay to Not Be Okay with the PD until I double checked and confirmed that it’s the same PD as Encounter (Boyfriend). I love love love Encounter and have written countless posts as the drama unfurled but I also noted that the drama had a lovely whimsical and soothing opening credits that were animated and changed with each episodes. It was basically a walled off princess finding her freedom and exploring the world around her and really fitting for the theme of the drama.
It’s Okay takes that to a new level as the entire drama is interspersed with illustrations, animations, cool graphics, and fun live action mixed with drawing visuals. Female lead Go Moon Young is a critically acclaimed and successful children’s book writer of many macabre but quite insightful tales and seems to live in her own world, one where she can pluck male lead Kang Tae up like a toy in her world to collect. It’s telling that older brother Sang Tae loves Moon Young’s work, showing us that her heart is pure from the eyes of someone that has no filter corrupted by the world’s teachings of good, bad, right, and wrong.
