It took him 5 years to come back on the screen because he served his military service for 2 years. While Seo Ye-ji‘s last drama was in 2018, the Lawless Lawyer.


Psycho But It’s Okay (사이코지만 괜찮아) or It’s Okay to Not Be Okay is a new romantic Korean drama that revolves around Kim Soo Hyun who plays as Moon Kang Tae, a caregiver who works in a psychiatric ward. While Seo Ye-ji as Ko Moon Young is a famous writer of children’s books.

Kdrama Review: 5 Reasons to Watch  Psycho But It’s Okay

1. The story and genre are interesting

Psycho But Its Okay story shows Mental Health awareness especially for those who are suffering from trauma-related disorders, substance abuse disorders, mood disorders, ASD (Autism Spectrum Disorder), and others.  This drama is an eye-opener to everyone that not all who are suffering from these disorders can’t have a normal life. They are also human and it’s not there fault to be that way. So we need to give them extra care and understanding. It’s tiring but everything will be fine in the end.
The genre of this drama is a mix of romance, drama, comedy, and humor.

2.  The cinematography and OST’s are excellent

I love how this drama created their visual effects and how they use books to visualize the content of the drama. Have you seen the house of Ko Moon Young? It’s just actually the front door and the other exterior parts of her house where a visual effect.
I also love the filming locations that they used in this drama though they’re too far.  It’s really compatible with its genre and story since they’re featuring relaxing views and beautiful landscapes.  I also got the chance to visit one of the main filming locations which are the Psychiatric Hospital in Gangwondo. You may check the details here, Secret Blue Cafe | Psycho But It’s Okay Filming Location.
I also love the drama’s OST which leads me to have my own copy to listen everyday. Even the drama ends I will still be in the Last Song Syndrome mood.

3.  The casts are extraordinary

Psycho But It’s Okay’s casts are very extraordinary. From the protagonists Kim Soo Hyun and Seo Yeji plus the unexceptional character of Oh Jung-se. Adding to the list of characters the ‘Pambansang Omma’ Kim Mi-Kyung, Kim Chang Wan ( the Director of the Psychiatric Hospital), Kim Joo-hun ( the CEO of Sangsangyisang Publishing Company), Jang Young-nam (the head nurse at the hospital), Park Jin-joo (the art director but most of the times assistant of the CEO), and Kang Ki-dong as the friend that we wish to have.

4.  The chemistry of the main characters

It’s the first time that we Kim Soo Hyun and Seo Yeji together and their chemistry on the screen gave us so much ‘kilig’.  Some of the fans are shipping them because they really look alike.  Beyond doubt, these two are perfectly beautiful.

Pscyho But It’s Okay taught me that it’s okay to not be okay. That it’s okay to take a break, that’s fine to cry when things get heavy.
This drama made me realize that no matter how we push other people to leave us and go away if they love us they’ll never leave.
Also, the family is not just about blood. It’s about the people who are there for you in good and bad times.
