“It’s Okay to Not Be Okay” is more than just a statement about mental health or a snappy slogan for mental health awareness month. It’s also the title of an exceptionally popular South Korean romantic drama that skillfully and sincerely tackles the topic of mental health through its two leads.
One of whom is believed to have antisocial personality disorder while the other works in a psychiatric ward and cares for his older brother, who is on the autism spectrum.
The tale is deeper and darker than what we commonly see in romance K-dramas, but that is part of what makes it valuable.
Since its debut in 2020, the show — which is known as “Psycho, but It’s Okay” in South Korea — has become increasingly popular among fans of K-dramas in the U.S., where it streams on Netflix (and by the way, pro tip: Netflix has a lot of excellent Korean shows if you’re interested, and not just Squid Game).
If you’ve binged the series’ 16 episodes and are eager for additional information regarding whether or not it will return for a second season, you’re absolutely not alone.
So we’ve gathered together whatever conceivable intel we could discover about the prospect of future episodes. Here’s all we know so far about “It’s Okay to Not Be Okay” Season 2.
Ko Moon-young and two orphaned brothers Moon Gang-tae and Moon Sang-the were featured in the first season of “It’s Okay to Not Be Okay.” Moon-young and Sang-the fall in love, while Moon-young and Sang-the have a genuine relationship.
A tragic event does, however, unite the lives of the three individuals. The murderer of the brothers’ mother, Moon-mother Young, is finally brought to justice. She gets sentenced to a prison near the end of the series.
While the overall story of the characters and the complexities of their relationships is concluded by the finale, there are some prospects for a second season.
Their well-being could be kept in mind if the show pays a visit to see how they are doing. If the show is going to explore the mother-daughter bond, it would make sense to include Moon-mother Young in this plot.
This season, it’s acceptable if you’re not okay. It’s common knowledge that what happens after the happily ever after may not elicit the same emotional response as what came before.
As a result, a second season may have a difficult time re-creating that plot point. In spite of this, there are a lot of people who are interested in seeing what the characters are up to now, so a second season will no doubt have a large audience.
Fans are hoping to see familiar faces from the last film when it comes to the cast. Kim Soo Hyun is most likely to stay on as Moon Gang Tae in the future. She’ll also reprise her role as Ko Moon Young, Seo Ye Ji. Oh, Jung Se will play Moon Sang Tae, too, if rumors are to be believed.
Even said, the actors portraying Nam Joo Ri and Lee Sang In haven’t yet been decided upon. For these two roles, the show’s producers have yet to find the right performers. Cameo parts will also be used for some of the cast members. Fans are eagerly awaiting the release of the characters’ names.
No word yet on whether or not this popular Korean drama will be renewed. The return of the whole cast and crew for a second season has been confirmed. There is a possibility that the film could be released on the Last of 4 December-2022 if the filming and production go on this year.
Many fans are clamoring for the show to be brought back after it was canceled in August 2020. A revival announcement could be made this year if all goes according to plan.
As for the release date, we don’t have any official information at this time. For the time being, the only option is to hold out for the supporters.
