My favorite show right now is It’s Okay, It’s Love - yes, it’s love, but it’s also sex and spite and denial and brutality and the most painful sort of comedy. It’s a show that has tossed the usual kdrama rom-com rulebook out the window, and I really don’t know where it is going to take us.
Some people worry that this show is going to trivialize the many mental health issues at work here by tying up everything in a neat little bow at the end. But I actually trust Jo In Sung as an actor on this one. He is so good at portraying people with inner vulnerabilities and flaws, even if the show in the end gives him Hae Soo and children and flowers and unicorns barfing rainbows, all he has to do is look at the camera with those slightly shifty, wounded eyes and I’ll know that the reality is, it’s all still in there.
