Kim Soo-hyun and Seo Ye-ji to star in the new “healing romance” show
SEOUL, March 23, 2020 - Netflix Inc., the world’s leading streaming entertainment service, confirms that It’s Okay to Not Be Okay, starring Kim Soo-hyun and Seo Ye-ji, will premiere in June, exclusively on Netflix outside Korea.
The show depicts an unusual romance between two people who end up healing each other’s emotional and psychological wounds. Moon Gang-tae, played by Kim Soo-hyun (My Love from the Star, The Moon Embracing the Sun), is a caretaker working at a psychiatric ward who does not even bother to believe in love. He seems to be carrying all the weight and pain in life, and devotes himself only to looking after his disabled older brother. Go Moon-young, played by Seo Ye-ji (Save Me, Lawless Lawyer), is a children’s book writer who is clueless about love. She is popular among all age groups, yet very antisocial and indifferent to others.
It’s Okay to Not Be Okay is produced by Studio Dragon, written by Jo Yong (Jugglers), and directed by Park Shin-woo (Encounter, Don’t Dare to Dream).
