Rather than a train journey of steady speed, tvN drama It’s Okay to Not be Okay is looking more like a car drive down the coast. At times electrifying with the astounding view and now we see a slow down of quiet contemplation. Episode 5 was a lovely interlude of sorts, bringing Kang Tae and Moon Young into each other’s personal home space, she intruding into his and him entering hers at episode in. They are the least OTP of OTPs, their childhood connection less a fated to be together but more of children not able to handle any of the heavy weight of the world tossed at them. I’m glad to see Ju Ri lose her cool and show her catty side, and of course Sang Tae continues to be the raw emotional heart of the show where everyone can try to work on their own problems but he’s limited by actual mental limitations from being autistic so we see truth through the lens of his honesty. What a wonderful drama still, so warm and jagged simulataneously.
