A curious example of an un-melo melodrama. It's Okay, It's Love manages to find a pleasing balance between humor and tragedy, delivering the emotional weight in a way that resonates with the viewers while not completely drowning them in sorrow. For it also deals with a topic that's rarely discussed in K-drama, the series proves to be an engaging experience, albeit not a perfect one.
Jang Jae Yeol (Jo In Sung) is a charming and witty mystery novelist and a radio DJ who also suffers from obsessive-compulsive disorder.
When ongoing construction near home disturbs his writing, Jae Yeol decides to share housing alongside Ji Hae Soo (Gong Hyo Jin), a first-year psychiatry fellow, Jo Dong Min (Sung Dong Il), Hae Soo's work sunbae and first love, and Park Soo Kwang (Lee Kwang Soo), Dong Min's patient with the Tourette syndrome.
Although Jae Yeol and always opinionated Hae Soo have a rocky start to their acquaintance, they soon become attracted to each other and begin a relationship, yet things take a turn for the worse when Jae Yeol's friendship with the mysterious Kang Woo (EXO's D.O.) awakens tragic memories of the past, revealing deep unhealed wounds and leading to a crushing revelation.
