Kim Soo Hyun will star as community health worker Moon Kang Tae, who had a traumatic childhood losing his parents as a child; he had to become the family breadwinner at a young age. He spent his entire life looking after his older brother who is on the autism spectrum. He is always concerned about making enough money to put food on the table and keep a roof over their heads. He doesn’t believe his future will ever improve.
Here is what we also know about “Psycho But It’s Okay”:
“Psycho But It’s Okay” will be directed by Park Shin Woo, the director behind the hit dramas “Encounter” and “Don’t Dare to Dream (Jealousy Incarnate).”
