“It’s Okay, It’s Love” Premiere – First Impressions

This drama is a crazy warm mix of surprisingly refreshing themes, immersing itself in mental illnesses, adult romance and complicated relationships. It touches on the border of taboo discussions present in Korean culture and has an emphasis on psychiatry which explores the brain’s various states and the enormous capabilities of the human mind.

The concept of the drama is wonderful. In addition, the scripting, editing, pacing and directing are all almost flawless. Some may criticize the convolution in the premiere episode as being quite unbalancing but that confusion was probably intended and also part of the drama’s theme as well.

The main leads simply meet each other without any strings of fate attached or the typical drama encounter based on a big misunderstanding. The drama also features a playlist of various types of music
