OKAY. THIS DRAMA IS CRAZY GOOD.

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.

AND THE MUSIC. *BREATHES DEEPLY* I DON'T KNOW HOW TO EXPLAIN TO Y'ALL HOW MUCH I LOVED THIS OST. LIKE... THESE SONGS. THEY'RE GREAT. THEY FIT IN SO WELL WITH THE SCENES AND I'VE DOWNLOADED A BUNCH OF THEM AND I NEVER GOT TIRED OF THEM (like I have with very many other songs in other dramas) AND WOW. A++++++++++++++++++ TO WHOEVER PICKED THESE SONGS. A FREAKING PLUS.

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)

One of the BEST dramas so far!
If you love watching emotional Heart touching dramas then you'll love this.
A medical drama with a strong female character and a cool i-know-im-hot iwantyouyouwantmetoo male character who has this emotional side to him that will make you cry.
One of the reasons why this couple fit. Other than these two.The drama itself has adorable, funny and sad moments. It has EVERYTHING. Great music. Romance. read more Cute korean moments XD Hilarious parts and Sad moments. Its so good to see a drama with everything. The story line is great. Keeps you entertained and im not a rewatcher kinda person but ill definitely watch this one again.
And its def worth it...Jo in sung <3

Jiy is in this as a conman about to play another con, until he falls in love with his con. One of my favorite dramas.

Gong HyoJin's amazing acting takes on a different, and slightly less 'intelligent' role in The Master's Sun - but pulls it off as flawlessly as she did her eccentric and complex character in It's OK, That's Love.
Both dramas have a lead character (Joong Won in The Master's Sun, Hae Soo in It's OK, That's Love) that sees themselves as a little bit superior and doesn't want to have much to do with the second lead initially, but turns into a comedic and cheeky relationship.
Both have psychological elements to them which can be very sad. Without giving too much away, a departing of a certain soul in TMS reminded me of a soul the metaphorically leaves in IOTL). They also deal with healing wounds and fixing problems of the past.
Both are funny and feel-good dramas.
TMS is a little more slow-paced but has a more complex plot; IOTL has more side-plots, a less complex main story but is more high-intensity and high-emotion.

    I waited on this one because I watched that winter wind, it blows and the masters son. Two dramas I love, but unprepared to see those actors play different roles. Glad I waited because I love this drama. Very unique and hilarious at times. I've never liked comedic dramas. Soundtrack is very unique. I love hate it. Love the techno, but because I'm American, I didn't care for the English music. Just me, personally. Watch this drama!

    This drama is quite overrated... the story is quite good, and become more interesting from episodes 12-13 to 15, but it can't be defined a medical drama, so lacking from this point of view. The couple was cute and strange at the same time.

    Only only only one complaint. This drama underestimates the field of psychology. Lack of information and effort to representate the reality of each of the illnesses on the show. I know maybe they didn't want it to be melodramatic but it would have been nice to see some reality on it. It does says at the beginning that is pure fictional, but still they touched serious matters and treated it so...lightly. :( That is my only complaint because the drama itself was perfect.

      I think the drama had a great mixture of lighthearted optimism and some heavy doses of reality - if you dive too much into melodrama you run the risk of being even more unrealistic. It's a drama - first and foremost it is meant to entertain, not to educate. I don't think they treated it too lightly, I would have been offended if they did.

      Being more realistic doesn't mean the purpose is to educate. They did treated it very lightly. Having a mental illness is not something to show off, nor it's something people so easily accept or overcome. Also the female lead had some serious obsessive/psycho problems that were left untouched. Anyways that's how I see it because for me it's a very delicate subject and indeed, I was offended by it.

    It had a different story, it was actually a really good story. Jo In Sung perfectly made the character derivable. All of the cast was REALLY great. However, for some reason I could not feel the chemistry between the two leads. Maybe I expected so much from the reviews... overall, I think it's a bit overrated.

    An interesting drama with a different twist. The male and female lead were good. It was my first time watching them it action and they did great. Actually the whole cast did great.
