A thread for #ItsOkayToNotBeOkay

๐Ÿฆ‹First impressions: It's like watching a dark fairy tale unfold where children's book author Ko Munyeong is now a character and not the writer (or so we think). Will Kangtae dare to turn the page?

๐Ÿฆ‹Her father tried to strangle her to death when she was a child. Her mother declared her fate: "No one can ever stay by your side because youโ€™re a monster." Who are the real monsters in this dark fairy tale?

๐Ÿฆ‹KT has constantly been shifting from place to place with his brother. In this melancholic scene, he tells good friend JS to settle down comfortably instead of following them. MY's words hit a nerve: has he been running away?

"To a person with autism, family members are like close strangers." It's heartening that this drama does not portray KT as a saintly caregiver, but as someone who struggles as much as he gives.

๐Ÿฆ‹Ep 3: The Sleeping Witch

The fairy tale in each episode depicts the inner demons that haunt her. If fairy tales are indeed darker than reality, I pray her story has a truly happy ending.

๐Ÿฆ‹Ep 4: The Zombie Kid

It's fitting how it is KT who opens the story, but MY who closes it. "What did the boy want? Satiating his hunger or his mother's warmth?" It takes one zombie kid to understand the anguish of another zombie kid...

๐Ÿฆ‹The Lighthouse Scene: The golden beam of light diffused by rods of rain and its dappled reflection on the wet ground recreate a Monet painting. The light shifts from MY to KT, then illuminates them both as she embraces him tightly. (con't)

(con't) The pelting rain turns into gentle raindrops as he wraps his arms around her. Two broken souls who found each other in the dark, guided by a unwavering beacon of light and warmth.

The title sequence for ep 2 & 4 was in b&w, but ep 3 was in colour...A cursed castle, dark woods, imagery from The Red Shoes, Snow White, Beauty & the Beast, & ubiquitous butterflies...

"Itโ€™s fine even if itโ€™s fake.
Putting on a smile isnโ€™t hard to do.โ€

When you realise that KT deliberately conceals his emotions because of his brotherโ€™s ASD. A mask worn by KT, but which he uses to shield ST...

โ€œYou ran to me instead of running away.โ€
This scene hits even harder when we learn KT already recognised MY as that girl who saved his life.

โ€œLet this scar be a reminder.โ€
When the scars in your heart go deeper.

(this is the version narrated by MY; the epilogue is likely to be ST's reimagined version ft. Esmeralda and Quasimodo from The Hunchback of Notre Dame)
