Drama review: 괜찮아 사랑이야 (It's Okay It's Love)

It's the last episode yesterday and this morning I directly watched it. Some people refer to this drama as It's Okay That's Love. It is too good to be true! I admit at first this wasnt at my drama list, mostly because I saw the promotional poster and I felt both main leads didnt have the chemistry at all. There's also another poster with them sleeping in a bathtub. Not only me who thought this way, but also most of the netizens. Gong Hyo Jin and Jo In Sung are both my favorite actor and actress, but their chemistry are more into bestfriend type. But yeah they have proved that Im wrong; I totally love this drama! The actors portray themselves really well and this GongJo couple's chemistry is just incredible. They dont make like they are acting; they just let it flow naturally and you will find that you really enjoy it. Jo In Sung is Jang Jae Yeol, a bestselling author with emotional childhood scar and Gong Hyo Jin is Ji Hae Soo, a psychiatrist who is not affectionate. He has the face of player; handsome and charming. He met Haesoo accidentally and both are not fond of each other since the first time they met. Jaeyeol has Obsessive Compulsive Disorder and a sleeping disorder where he can only sleep in the bathtub. One day Jaeyeol moves to a house where surprisingly Haesoo also lives there with a fellow sunbae Joo Dong Min and Park Soo Kwang, a guy with Tourette Syndrome. How they can be dating is also very awkward because they start dating not after falling in love with each other but before it. I find it weird since typically kdrama couples always start dating after they fall in love. There are also Jaeyeol's older brother, Jaebum, who has been in jail for 14 years because of murdering his stepdad and Han Kangwoo, played by EXO D.O., a boy who will take an important part till the end of the story. The twist will come afterwards where Jaeyeol's childhood emotional scars had actually made him developed a mental disorder (not only OCD). I like this drama not only because Im interested in psychiatry, but also because the premise is unique and they dont make the story easily guessed by the audience. Following the episodes you can feel that GongJo has irresistable chemistry making everybody loves them. Not to mention they had a lot of kisses and hugs in this drama. I thought they kissed more than 10 times. I would like to give a little spoiler here but this will reduce the interest in the story so I decide not to tell you guys xD This is indeed one of my favorite drama this year where actually I have watched Angel Eyes and Joseon Gunman till half of the whole episodes but I didnt manage to finish it because I felt they were too boring and draggy after the mid parts. Some kdramas are just ended that way; it was awesome from the beginning till half way but then they change the storyline to what I think is the dumbest one and I stop watching right away. I know everybody has their own preference in kdrama genres but you can start watching this one first and then decide whether you want to continue watching it. Very recommended and happy watching!

 Jang Jae-yeol is a writer of bestselling mystery novels and a radio DJ. Playful and a bit arrogant, he also suffers from obsessive–compulsive disorder. Ji Hae-soo is a psychiatrist on her first year of fellowship. Driven and ambitious with her career yet compassionate towards her patients, Hae-soo has a negative attitude towards love and relationships in her personal life. Once Jae-yeol and Hae-soo meet, there is much contention between them caused by their strong personalities and refusal to give in to each other. But slowly their bickering turns into love and they begin to learn how compatible they are. Jae-yeol and Hae-soo attempt to heal each other's deep-seated wounds, but their fledgling relationship takes a blow when they learn that Jae-yeol's mental health issues are more serious than they initially suspected.
