Kim Soo Hyun fans, buckle up because your favorite leading man's fated return is much closer than you think!
ICYMI, last February, tvN announced the production of It's Okay to Not Be Okay. Described by the network as a “healing romance that resembles a storybook fantasy,” the romantic drama follows Soo Hyun as the lonely Moon Kang Tae, a community health worker at a psychiatric ward who prefers to keep to himself. He eventually crosses paths with Go Moon Young (Seo Ye Ji) a successful children's story book writer suffering from antisocial personality disorder. To add to this constant hurdle, she also knows nothing about love. Throughout the course of the series, they help each other heal from their respective emotional wounds.
It's Okay to Not Be Okay is set to be Soo Hyun's first major role on the silver screen after being discharged from the military. It's also been five whole years since the My Love from the Star actor helmed a K-drama after starring in The Producers back in 2015. Most recently, he also made headlines for his buzz-worthy cameo appearances in Hotel del Luna and Crash Landing on You.
Pegged for a June 2020 release, it first teaser was finally unveiled as the much-awaited series draws near. As translated by an article on Soompi.com, the 15-second clip features a piece of paper with the caption “a little strange romantic comedy about love.” In time with the teaser's haunting music box tune, the word "love" is scratched out as the same hand cuts out a few characters to spell the word "psycho."
