I can't believe how much I love this drama...

The characters feel like real people that actually have impacts on everyone around them. This is awesome because many times writers of dramas tend to forget characters that aren't in the main couple/triangle. I love that this drama shows actions and reactions of so many people, all while being able to keep the viewers absolutely in love with the main characters. No one read more felt overshadowed or forgotten, and you can feel how everyone involved really cared about telling this story.

The cast is filled with some of my favorite actors of all time, so of course the acting is superb. The mark of a great actor is that you completely forget that they aren't their characters while onscreen, and the entire cast pulls this off perfectly.

As for the OST...probably the best I've ever heard. This is the first time I've purchased music from an OST, and I bought not one, but two songs from this drama. One particular song is used to drive the plot further emotionally, and in the two biggest scenes it's used, it works perfectly to really capture the viewers' entire being into that scene. Those scenes hurt so much, yet I found myself watching them over and over because of how heartbreaking they were and beautifully they were put together.

I already want to watch it again, and I've just finished! This has definitely become one of my favorite shows (not just kdramas!) of all time.

The characters, the story, and the relationships were all so well thought out! I loved all of the characters, and they all have really wonderful relationships with each other- that are REAL. They fight, bicker, annoy the hell out of each other, get seriously frustrated with each other, and they realize that they all have their own flaws. And the story stays realistic, (funnily enough to read more say about a drama based on mental disorders) showing the true struggles people in relationships (wife, mother, girlfriend, brother, daughter, etc.) with people with mental disorders have to face. It's really wonderful. The cast acted out everything brilliantly- the emotions were conveyed very well and wow, some of the best acting I've ever seen.


Anyways, I totally recommend this drama! It's probably one of my all time favorites now and I loved this drama from start to finish!

For a country still dealing with its own discrimination towards mental disorders, I thought this drama was just plain- WOW. Wonderful. Seriously, good job!!! (I'm in awe)

Make a Recommendation More recs (14)Recommendations

There are similar recommendations already but I shall include mine anyway. Both dramas have damaged male leads, females trying to heal them and lot of psychological stuff. There's comedy and romance in both too. Watch one if you liked the other/

Pinocchio is not a very cliched love story, which reminds me of It's Okay, That's Love. They both have great themes/lessons to learn and take part of. Not to mention how phenomenal the two drama's actors are! Please watch!

    I am watching Episode 7 but I don't particularly like it. I don't hate it either. I feel like dropping it. Seriously, will it get any better?

      Oh, sorry about that. Tagged spoiler now. I think I am going to officially drop it since the twist would be not much of a surprise to me. I honestly don't like In Sung's acting. I guess he's quite feminine for my liking. :)

      aha thankyou!, and I suppose it's all down to personal taste for this drama, In Sung is my favourite actor so maybe I'm a little biased haha:)

    I must admit that this was the best acting I've ever seen in a drama, even though I didn't shed a single tear while watching it =p . But for me the second half of the drama was more enjoyable, as the first half involved tiring, unnecessary pickering.
