It’s finale weekend for weekend drama It’s Okay to Not be Okay, and it’s been a fantastic ride even with the rather unorthodox turn in last weekend’s episodes. Since it’s live streamed on Netflix I watch it on TV rather than my computer and oftentimes Mr. Koala and the Koala Teens wander by and watch a few minutes and ask questions about what the heck is going on, lol, and I yell at them to go away because I’m engrossed and have no time to explain!
It’s not your average crack drama with fun trendy scenes, it’s a slow build and not terribly happy to watch, it’s like we’re all waiting for the happiness payoff still and we’re 14-episodes in. What it is is meaningful, watch amazing acting from leads Kim Soo Hyun, Seo Ye Ji, and Oh Jung Se, week after week, and seeing their characters grow, blossom, and find courage in having each other. As a mental health drama it’s less precise and medical than It’s Okay, It’s Love, focusing more on the situational abuse that created the leads starting points and letting us join their journey to get better. I really love this drama and can’t wait for this weekend to see how it all ends.
