My Personal Thoughts
5% isn’t bad at all especially for a cable series but I definitely think “It’s Okay To Not Be Okay” is not getting the attention it deserves ratings wise. Maybe because it’s a healing drama with a slower pace… but, I still fail to see how it continuously scores in that range.
I think Soo Hyun, Oh Jung Se and Ye Ji will probably get a lot of nominations because of this, I’ve seen netizens praise this drama a lot, the ones who are watching it are enjoying it thus far. Oh Jung Se is amazing thus far, I can’t wait to see him win so many awards because he deserves it.
Ratings aren’t the biggest indication of a good kdrama but when you love a drama you want it to do well, I think this will become a classic as time goes on if it continues to be this good.
OCN’s “Train” also deserves more credit, it’s like OCN is going back to its suspenseful origins. The premise of the drama is promising thus far. 1% is far too little for this one as well.
