Kim Soo-Hyun is finally back! The South Korean actor is making his TV series comeback via ‘It’s Okay to Not Be Okay’. It is set to premiere on tvN on June 20, 2020 and will be streamed worldwide on Netflix, every Saturday and Sunday, 22:30 KST / 21:30 SGT.
Moreover, the 16-episode romantic comedy series is directed by Park Shin-woo, and written by Jo Yong. It also features Seo Yea-ji, and Oh Jung-se.
Moon Gang-tae (Kim Soo-hyun) works as a caregiver in a psychiatric ward. Gang-tae is blessed with everything including a great body, smarts, ability to sympathize with others, patience, ability to react quickly, and more. He kindly takes care of his brother, Sang-tae (Oh Jung-se), who is eight years older than him and on the autism spectrum. Fate leads Gang-tae to meet a special woman. Meanwhile, the woman, Ko Mun-yeong (Seo Yea-ji), is a popular author of children’s books, but she is extremely selfish, arrogant, and rude.
It’s Okay to Not Be Okay features an unusual romance between two people who end up healing each other’s emotional and psychological wounds.
In one of his interviews, Soo-Hyun talked about his character, “It’s a character that hovers over it. Like everyone else, there is no stronger and better than anyone outside or in front of others, but when you are alone, do you disarm and collapse? Kang Tae looks fine, but in fact, he is always tired of the things he carries. I thought that there would be someone like Kang Tae somewhere.”
