It's Okay, That's Love

Given Synopsis (
Jang Jae Yeol is a mystery writer and radio DJ. He suffers from a obsession. Ji Hae Soo is going through her first year fellowship in psychiatry at a University Hospital. She chose psychiatry because she doesn't want to perform surgeries. After she meets Jang Jae Yeol, her life goes through big changes.

I can't put into words the amount of love I have for this drama. I loved it. It was just one of those dramas that made you feel like laughing, crying, and also bubbly inside. The characters were so real. All had their flaws and their good sides. You can see the real representation of interactions between normal friends/family. The acting was spot on. As always, Gong Hyo Jin and Jo In Sung never fail to impress me. D.O's acting was quite surprising to me because usually idols do a pretty shitty job at acting.
       The whole story line was amazing to me. It was such a psychological twist when you realize that Kang Woo is a representation of Jang Jae Yeol and that Kang Woo was imagined due to guilt-caused schizophrenia. And unlike a lot of amazing dramas, the ending left me warm and satisfied. I loved it for how realistic and how much I can relate to everything. Not to mention, the chemistry between the two main leads wasn't just loving and passionate. They were like a real couple where their love doesn't fade. Again, I appreciated that there was no second lead trying to ruin the relationship. Glad to see appearances of dramas where a second lead and a love triangle is NOT necessary.
        Also, the way they dealt with mental illness and portrayed it was well done. Mental illness is often stigmatized (especially in Asian countries). People tend to view it negatively and don't understand how easy one can have/get mental illness. This drama showed that and it probably enlightened many viewers that mental illness shouldn't be stigmatized because it can happen to anyone. It shows that lives can continue to go on with or without the illness and that they are just people. That was why this drama was touching and enlightening.
Absolutely 100% pleased with this drama.
