K-Drama Review: It’s Okay, That’s Love // My first Hiatus announcement!

I’ll be going on a (short) Hiatus!

Heeeeey guys! I hope your January is treating you well in every way. ❤

I’ve never gone so long without posting anything on my blog. This will be my first hiatus in almost 3 years. I’ll just take a moment to sink that in… I still can’t believe I’ll complete 3 years of blogging this March! Yooohooo!

Anyway, I’ll just be taking a short break for this month due to my exams. I have only 2-3 scheduled posts for January and hopefully, they’ll go up in time. I’ll be in back in February with my usual posting and stuff. Also, I won’t be able to hop onto other blogs and comment as much as I would love to, I know when I’ll open my email, there will definitely will be more than 5k bookish emails/notifications to check. But I wiiiiiill! So… uh, don’t think I just forgot you guys.

Exams suck!

You guys rock!

So unless then adios! ❤

Take care and stay safe. And as always stay bookish. (And don’t forget to miss moi!)

Blurb:

Jang Jae Yeol is a famous mystery novelist and popular radio DJ with a prickly personality. After meeting psychiatrist Ji Hae Soo when they both serve on a talk show panel delving into the criminal mind, they instantly rub each other the wrong way. But when Jae Yeol’s girlfriend plagiarizes his work, forcing him to lie low until the media storm blows over and he can prove his innocence, he unexpectedly becomes Hae Soo’s roommate. Jae Yeol moves into a home that he owns that is being rented by Hae Soo; Jo Dong Min, another psychiatrist and Hae Soo’s senior colleague; and Park Soo Kwang, a young man with Tourette syndrome. As Jae Yeol and Hae Soo’s personalities clash, they help each other heal from their own deep-rooted emotional scars.

I just started this drama on a whim and I didn’t expect it to be this good. Jang Jae-Yeol (Zo In-Sung) is a mystery writer who meets Ji Hae-Soo (Kong Hyo-Jin), a psychiatrist on a talk show and they don’t kick off with a good start. Jang Jae-Yeol tries to talk to her but Ji Hae-Soo avoids him at all cost but when he unexpectedly becomes her roommate (who she shares with two other people), they are both forced to face each other. Slowly and steadily they start to fall for each other but when Jang Jae-Yeol’s past comes back to haunt him, their lives turn upside down.

First of all, dude that was one holy hell of a twist!!! The plot slowly eases us into the twist but it’s set up in a way that the audience can realise it first before the characters! Although I could see it coming, the anticipation killed me! And when it finally happened! Gosh!! My goodness! You have to see it for yourself to see what I am talking about. The whole game changed. I thought it’s was just a hate to love kind of drama but nooooope, it just went totally in other direction and blew my mind. Though I wish the pace was a little faster, it would have made things more compact.

Yeah, I know. I straight dived into the plot twist with discussing the plot first but I had to let it out!

So, the plot is pretty interesting. Both the characters are mature (well most of the time) but they both challenged each other and both of them couldn’t deny the chemistry between them, so it was quite a surprise when they decided to give their relationship a try. I enjoyed both the dynamics of the character. I can’t divulge more about the characters because it’s linked to the plot twist. But they were both stubborn and perfect for each other. I loved the romance between them, it was sooo sweet. And they both helped each other to heal the scars of the past they had been carrying their whole life.

Jang Jae-Beom (Yang Ik-June) who is Jang Jae-Yeol’s brother is rotting in jail due to killing his father which he pleads not guilty to. His character brought a different side to the drama which nicely wrapped up with the plot but his scenes were a bit boring. But Jang Jae-Yeol’s relationship with Han Gang-Woo (Do Kyung-Soo) was the most interesting one!

I definitely enjoyed how things were executed and there were some parts that surprised me other than the plot twist. Overall, I really enjoyed the acting and everything seemed so real, I couldn’t help but root for them!

Recommend it?

Yes.
