I bet everyone was excited to see Kim Soo-hyun comeback after his military discharge. Kim Soo-Hyun was well-known for his act in My Love from The Stars and ever since then i'm rooting to see more of him in K-Drama.

It's Okay To Not Be Okay was released soon after Mystic Pop-Up Bar was ended. If you're only watching its trailer, you'll probably be thinking it's a fairy-tale movie or a fantasy just like Mystic Pop-Up Bar but it actually more than that. It's a story was about a storybook writer, Go Moon Young who is suffering from an antisocial personality disorder and she met a health worker at a psychiatric ward named Moon Gang Tae that was played by Kim Soo-Hyun. Gang Tae have an autistic brother whom suffered from post-traumatic disorder after seeing their mother being killed whom he claimed 'the butterfly'.

The story was very different from any other typical drama you'll see and all the character was well-developed and unique in their own ways. Not only that it also brings the topic of mental health to the fore front. The chemistry portrayed between the two lead actors is heart stopping and I love how blunt-spoken the character played by Seo Ye Ji whom not afraid of anything except for her mom's shadow and not to mention, her unique alluring voice is perfect for her role.

Its a wonderful concept that brings laughter and tears to the audience. The production did a brilliant job with the script and dialogues; with a great fairy tale concept and perfect performance by the leads - great cinematography. As always Kim Soo-hyun never disappoint people with his talent and I love that he could portray more emotions in this drama comparing to his other dramas that he ever been in.

In the nutshell, It's Okay To Not Be Okay is a spectacular korean drama and it will definitely got you hooked until the end of its episodes.
