It was another two dramas for me in month of for August. One was just an okay watch, but the other was that special kind of drama that we all long for that completely sweeps us away and leaves us changed afterwards:
It’s Okay to Not Be Okay
Wow! It’s Okay to Not Be Okay is a masterpiece! It hooked me right from the start, and then I was glued to my seat all the way through. This is one of those special shows that captures your heart and takes you on an emotional journey that leaves you changed when you are through.
The drama is like a dark, modern fairy tale with a magical quality to it in the way the story is told. The script was so incredibly well-written with every line of dialogue having meaning. A lot of thought also went into the production with so much attention to detail in constructing the sets as well as how the scenes were shot. All of these elements blended together beautifully to carry us away into this slightly disturbing yet very healing fairy tale.
We had a powerhouse trio at the center of this story with Kim Soo Hyun, Seo Ye Ji, and Oh Jung Se. I can’t praise their acting enough. The romance, the brotherly relationship, and so many other wonderful relationships were explored.
This is a heart-wrenching yet beautiful story of growth and healing. The characters are flawed, but we come to understand them and root for their personal growth and happiness. They don’t have to be perfect to achieve that either. Love and acceptance can be found in imperfection. This is a truly special drama that is not to be missed. (It’s Okay to Not Be Okay Review)
Meow, the Secret Boy
Meow, the Secret Boy was an okay watch that I ended up having mixed feelings towards. It’s a cute show overall with a side of angst to round things out. The story is decent but quite basic being centered around a cat who can transform into a human and what ensues as he lives a double life trying to be with her.
There’s a bit of fun with the cat having to adjust to human life, some emotional baggage the characters have to deal with, and a complicated romance. The drama is on the slow side and kind of moseys along. The story progresses, but it just wasn’t the kind of show that had me itching to go onto the next episode right away. It was a decent watch for the most part though. (Meow, the Secret Boy Review)
