Oh, Jung-Sae as Moon, Sang-Tae (ST)
Spring comes again to Moon, Kang-Tae who has acquiesced to becoming the keeper of his brother. But this spring brings the girl from his buried memories back to his life and she starts to prod and pierce him, demanding him to reclaim his heart. In It Is Okay to Not Be Okay, we are treated with the Theatre of Cruelty, romantic comedy, Gothic-comic horror, murder mystery, and psychotherapy. In sum, this drama is a hefty knife that slices layers of tissues so swiftly that only after it is lodged next to your rib cage you would know what has happened.
A children's story writer, Ko, Moon-Yung insists on exposing the cruel, painful reality that, according to her, makes fairy tales a true vehicle of life lessons. Even though poignant and resounding, her gruesome characters and enigmatic moral invite sensationalism and scandal that complicate her career. Yet, it is her lack of empathy that helps others come to terms with their own desires. How would she open Kang-Tae's heart and in turn let it heal her own wounds?
