It's Okay to Not Be Okay

Well-loved K-Drama series "It's Okay To Not Be Okay" has once again brought pride to the country and the rest of the world after being hailed one of the "Best International Shows of 2020" on the New York Times

The New York Times has recently listed down the best television shows of this year, ranging from Hollywood TV series to K-Dramas. Making it on the list are "Mrs. America" on Hulu, "P-Valley" on Starz, "The Bureau" on Sundance Now, "Mystery Road" on Acorn TV, and so much more. 

Among those that landed on the newspaper's "Best International Shows of 2020" is the award-winning and one of the highest-rated K-Dramas, "It's Okay To Not Be Okay." 

New York Times' James Poniewozik, Mike Hale, and Margaret Lyons indicated, "The wizards of South Korean TV drama can play countless variations on the romantic comedy. This archly clever series about an imperious, emotionally challenged children's book author and the impossibly noble health care worker she falls for mixes the rhythms of a sex farce with the ambience of a dark fairy tale. (Among other things, it's a tart commentary on cancel culture.)"

Starring Kim Soo-hyun, Seo Ye-ji, Oh Jung-se, and Park Kyu-young, Netflix series "It's Okay To Not Be Okay" is a story of care, romance, and comedy with the journey of Moon Gang-tae's character with his autistic older brother Moon Sang-tae, who frequently moves from town to town since the latter witnessed their mother's murder. Gang-tae works as a caretaker in a psychiatric ward in each place they reside, and meets popular children's book writer Ko Moon-young, reprised by Seo Ye-ji. In the story, Moon-young has antisocial personality disorder. 

"Making it work is a mesmerizing performance by Seo Ye-ji as the writer, who's both Cinderella and evil stepmother," the New York Times writers added.
