You can only get progress and catharsis from what is stagnant and seemingly hopeless, and episode 11 of It’s Okay to Not be Okay delivered tons of incredibly satisfying forward momentum without any of the usual K-drama tropes. Kang Tae and Moon Young’s breakup was as short as it should be considering how it solved no problems and allowed Sang Tae to stay in his comfort zone without thinking of the feelings of those around him. I love that the totally unexpected and way smexy OTP kissing in this episode didn’t come in the usual episode ender with a sudden smooth, it arrived like a flame and really let Kang Tae and Moon Young be the young, expectant, lovers they should be rather than two people walking around with emotional armor around them. The focus of this episode was on Sang Tae and he got a lot of chances to change his mind and try something different and it’s really sweet that he came around on his own pace and in own his way of understanding. When he saw Kang Tae’s dream smile of genuine happiness, when Kang Tae was dreaming of his normal life of a high school student with a normal older brother, ugh my heart just expanded with so much feels.
