I’m glad people aren’t more concerned about their mental health than they used to be. After years of hearing about such a disease in the news, I am glad that people are finally taking a step forward to understand what it really is. But besides all these things, I personally feel that TV shows are the most prominent ways to make this an achievement and help people realize it. While talking about such a series, I got stuck on “It’s okay to Not be Okay”, a Korean TV drama officially released last year with huge success because of its storyline that marks a true statement. After the show officially ended, fans started waiting for “It’s okay to Not be Okay season 2”.
It’s okay to Not be Okay is one of the masterpieces released by Korean dramas. Lately, K-dramas have become more statement than just romantic shows. We used to emphasize this drama as the romantic, but after the release of Squid Games, Home Sweet and The Uncanny, we realized there’s a lot more to it than sticking to one genre. The superiority of k-drama is no longer a hidden gem after the release of a huge diversity of series that perfectly suit everyone’s interests.
Talk about It’s Okay to Not be Okay, a series that deals with mental health, anxiety, love, friendship, childhood asphalt and fear. The story is interesting and leaves a lot of suspense. Through the episodes, we will get to the deeper and darker aspects of the character’s life that further destroyed their mental health.
Focusing on these issues, I believe the series stands out from the rest of the k-dramas in every way. After the series finally ended, the fans started to know about the future possibility of the show. We managed to get all the little information about this article. Keep reading to the end to find out all about it.
It’s Okay Not To Be Okay: A Popular K-Drama
Before we start reading about the possible season 2 of the series, let’s see everything that has happened so far. If you’re someone who hasn’t seen the first season yet, this section is for you.
It’s Okay to Not be Okay is one of the most popular k-drama series ever released. The show brings back the intriguing storyline that was missing from the audience’s lives. Following the story of the fictional cartoon characters like fairy tales and the monsters and dictating each episode through the medium of the story is something out of the imagination of the people. This is the first thing that makes the series completely unique from the rest of the k-drama. Anyone who will see the show will be sure to see how creativity and visuals can really work together to bring out something amazing.
Written by Jo Yong and directed by Park Shin-woo, the series stars Kim Soo-hyun, Seo Yea-ji, Oh Jung-se and Park Gyu-young in the lead. Through the storm, we’ll see each character’s mental health and how they’ve affected these things in their lives. Personally I feel bad for any character and this is the true beauty of the show. No one is the real criminal and everyone is a victim of their own situation.
The first series has 16 episodes and each show is broadcast on tvN and later handled by Netflix. The audience loved the show and it got a huge success from the audience. Critics critically acclaimed the show and average ratings were high, audience response was mixed and they were critical of the second half of the series. But in general, the critics gave a positive response and the majority liked it.

It’s Okay Not To Be Okay Season 2: Who’s Coming Back On The Show?
Starring Kim Soo Hyun and Seo Ye-ji as a protagonist. Both actors were already popular idols in the k-pop drama and their performance is the reason why they are so valued. The cast selection was really great and the fans loved the duo on screen.
If there’s a second season, we’ll definitely be seeing these two on the show again. The show won’t be the same without Oh Jung-se cast as Moon Sang Tae. His performance as a mentally ill person really shaped the show. The show won’t feel the same without these three, so obviously they’ll be back on the show.
If the series is officially renewed, it will be possible to see Kim Soo-Hyun is coming back as Moon Gang-tae and will pursue his job as an employee of the Ok psychiatrist hospital. Along with him, her love interest, Ko Moon-young will return and follow her work as a writer.

It’s Okay Not To Be Okay Season 2: What Will The Storyline Be?
The first season follows the life of Moon Gang-tae, an employee at the OK Psychiatrist Hospital who works for the mentally ill. V is the older brother of Gang-tae, but actually an autistic person who develops trauma and behaves childishly as his mental illness.
Ko Moon-young accidentally ran into a gang-tae and loved his masculine personality. This behavior of his generates the sense of obsession in Moon-Young and he optimistically follows him in every season. After a while, they both fell in love, but there is one who fell in love with Moon-young and that is Moon Sang-tae.
The series gets more after the revelation of their family’s personal history. As it turned out, Moon-young’s mother was actually behind the brothers’ mother’s death. The ending wrapped up perfectly, but the crowd still wanted one more season. The main thing that makes the ending great is that both the protagonists come together happily.
Moreover, the story comes to a romantic end and after that there was nothing to attract. Still, there are many people who feel that there are many things to consider in the coming seasons.

It’s Okay Not To Be Okay Season 2: Will There Be Another Season?
There is no official confirmation about the future of the series. Undoubtedly, It’s Okay to Not be Okay was a masterpiece. The story was intriguing and left the audience speechless by its storytelling and aesthetic screenplay. The show even got Recognition “The Best International Shows of 2020” from The New York Times. Tons of achievements were made under the k-drama.
However, none of them really make sense for the other reason for returning to the show. At the time of writing, there is no official confirmation for this. The officials seem to be busy with their upcoming schedule and it feels like there is nothing to tell.
Even the stars are working on their upcoming project. The future of the series can only be judged by the officials who are not yet ready for another season. On the other hand, the massive success of the series really defines why the series is another popular anticipation for its second season. The online reviews are enough for the show to determine its popularity.
Personally, I don’t think the series will take place in the future. The reason behind this can be understood by the show ending. The English shows often cross borders and the huge fans from abroad can imagine something similar with Korean shows. But Korean dramas are known for their single and exit storyline. Most series are single seasons and therefore Season 2 of It’s Okay to Not be Okay is unlikely to take place.
