In Photos: "It's Okay To Not Be Okay" Cast Members Take Us Behind The Scenes
These BTS snaps prove the cast members have such good chemistry even off-cam!
We'll be saying goodbye to It's Okay to Not be Okay (IOTNBO) this weekend (insert sad emojis). With only two episodes left, we're already feeling major sepanx, and we're surely going to miss this awesome cast.
IOTNBO is a psychological/romance drama that stars Korea's highest-paid actor Kim Soo-hyun and everyone's latest girl crush/fashion and beauty peg Seo Ye-ji. The compelling and gripping series, which centers on the healing of emotional and psychological wounds, respectively features the two stars as Moon Gang-tae, a caregiver whose world revolves around his brother who has the autism spectrum disorder, and Ko Mun-yeong, a bestselling children's book author with an antisocial personality disorder. Moon Gang-tae's brother is Moon Sang-tae, portrayed by 56th Baeksang Arts Awards Best Supporting Actor Oh Jung-se.
With each episode, the viewers get to see the lead characters go through changes within themselves and in the way they deal with people around them. With each other's company, Moon Gang-tae and Ko Mun-yeong slowly begin to open up and experience healing from their traumatic childhood, which is interestingly connected in more ways than one.
There's no question about how thought-provoking the plot is and how well produced it is overall. But it wouldn't have been as loved and appreciated as it is today if not for the chemistry between the cast members. It's important to feel and get engrossed in that connection, something evident in IOTNBO on different levels: in Moon Gang-tae and Ko Mun-yeong's relationship; in Moon Gang-tae and Moon Sang-tae's brotherhood; in the friendships between Moon Gang-tae & Jo Jae-soo (Kang Ki-doong), Ko Mun-yeong & Nam Ju-ri (Park Kyu-young), and Moon Sang-tae & Jo Jae-soo; in the brewing romance between Nam Ju-ri and Lee Sang-in (Kim Joo-hun); and even in the boss-employee relationships of Lee Sang-in with Ko Mun-yeong and Yoo Seung-jae (Park Jin-joo). IOTNBO was so well-loved some fans are even wishing (or petitioning!) for another series with the same leads!
IOTNBO wrapped up filming last July 31. Now that we're so close to finding out how this K-Drama will end, we take a look back at the fun, candid, and even scenic moments of the cast members behind the scenes. Off-cam, the friendship that bloomed between them is very apparent in the photos below.
