My Personal Thoughts
I am surprised the drama isn’t doing better as well honestly. Personally speaking, I found episode 3 and 4 way better than the premiere. If you had high high expectations going in, seeing the premiere might’ve left you disappointed.
As someone who’s been watching kdramas for a long time now, I know the first episodes aren’t any kdrama best episodes (in most cases), many of them get better as time goes by and this seems to be the case for “It’s Okay To Not Be Okay.”
The 3rd and 4th episodes were amazing. Kwak Dong Yeon’s cameo made the 3rd episode epic, he was so great, he’s a terrific actor.
There is still a lot to unpack with “It’s Okay To Not Be Okay,” but will 16 episodes be suitable or not? I hope they have enough material for 16 episodes.
So far, I am enjoying it and I can’t wait for next week’s episodes.
