It’s Okay to Not Be Okay Ep 3 & 4

5/5

Our main girl Moon Young has just the right amount of assertiveness!  I don’t know how she’s able to declare that she saw Gang Tae in her dreams. Such a boss! Love how she just speaks her mind that way. She’s even more hilarious when she asks Gang Tae if he wants to sleep with her loudly so that the rest of hospital could make assumptions about their convo. She has a way to keep him on his toes and I love the chemistry between the two!!!

Episode 3 was filled with action. I appreciate the diagnosis on why the patients act up the way they do whether their illness comes from the constraints come from parents, friends or society. It really touches on the point of why society believes mental illness is something to hide. I particularly like how this episode is able to touch on Gi-Do’s illness. Him showing up at his father’s campaign really drove it home with him wanting to be acknowledged vs. being hidden or fixed in a psychiatric hospital.

Episode 4 was emotional after Moon Young’s dad chokes her again and the whole story about Zombie Kid. Slightly depressing and gory. Again, the idea what the parents think the child needs vs what a child really wants. Moon Young and Gang Tae exchange some harsh words with one another. Even so, I really can’t wait as we are left Gang Tae looking for Moon Young in the rain (such a K-dramatic moment).

OST of the Week: Sam Kim’s Breath is soooooo good! Definitely on repeat and added to my next yoga playlist for July.
