We are currently more than halfway through Netflix’s K-drama “It’s Okay To Not Be Okay” (사이코지만 괜찮아). As the series approaches its conclusion, the plot is getting enticing with a lot of mind-triggering conflicts surrounding our favourite characters.
With the recent episodes aired, we have no doubt that a lot of fans are curious to know more. While we are patiently waiting for the finale, check out this list of 7 burning questions that viewers are dying to know the answers to.
1. What’s the deal with Mun-yeong’s mother?
We already know Mun-yeong (Seo Ye-ji)’s mother is supposedly dead with her death being officially registered years ago. However, she often haunts Mun-yeong in her nightmares. Then her father Go Dae-hwan (Lee Eol) hears a ghost singing which is further corroborated by other witnesses.
Most recently, the hospital director finds out that patient Park Ok-ran (Kang Ji-eun) sang the song that led to his seizure. These questions have been lingering; Is Mun-yeong’s mother alive? Is she the real Park Ok-ran or someone else?
2. Why did Go Dae-hwan try to kill Mun-yeong?
Go Dae-hwan attempted to choke his own daughter Mun-yeong twice; once when she was a child and another time at the hospital. Are his reasons for killing her the same for both instances? Did he kill his wife?
Additionally, Mun-yeong tells Sang-tae (Oh Jung-se) about Bluebeard when the brothers
start living at her home. Is Go Dae-hwan similar to Bluebeard or does he have a different story? We know he loved his wife and built her a mansion so she could write comfortably. There’s definitely a lot more to know about him as the series unravel!
3. What’s in store for Mun-yeong and Gang-tae?
Mun-yeong has been expressing her interest in Kim Soo-hyun’s character Gang-tae since day one. And now, Gang-tae is showing his growing feelings towards her as well (Aww!) They care about each other and understand that they complement each other as the series go.
With a memorable childhood history between them, can the pair maintain a healthy, loving relationship? Unfortunately, some hurdles may be coming for the couple but still, we’ll be rooting for them. ;)
4. Why does Mun-yeong enjoy stealing other people’s items?
If you’ve watched the K-drama, Mun-yeong has sneakily stolen a variety of items including a knife, a figurine, and a pen. Being a wealthy author, she could easily afford such items on her own. But instead, she sneakily steals from others.
In this case, could this penchant for theft be tied to her trauma? Will she be able to drop this habit some day? Interestingly enough, she hasn’t stolen anything from Gang-tae or Sang-tae yet. So, it looks like her thievery comes with its own moral code.
5. Who killed Sang-tae and Gang-tae’s mother?
Speaking of Sang-tae, he’s working hard on the mural the hospital director tasked him with. He’s not ready to add the butterflies yet, or talk about his mother’s murder but that could change soon.
Binge-watchers have been curious about this; How are the butterflies related to his mother’s passing and who is responsible for her death? Could either of Mun-yeong’s parents be involved in her death? Or is someone else culpable?
6. Is love in store for Ju-ri and Sang-in?
Sang-in (Kim Ju-hun) fell for Ju-ri (Park Gyu-young) at first sight when they didn’t realise who each other was at Jae-su’s pizza place. Following Ju-ri’s drunk rant, Sang-in ends up moving into her home and even shares Jae-su (Kang Ki-doong)’s room together.
Ju-ri is still hung up on Gang-tae, but will she be swayed by Sang-in? And will there be any love lines for Jae-su and Seung-jae (Park Jin-joo)?
7. Is there more to Nurse Park?
Does anyone else think Nurse Park (Jang Young-nam) looks a bit suspicious sometimes? Obviously, she’s great at her job but she can be kind of scary at times. There are some theories that either Park Ok-ran or Nurse Park is Mun-yeong’s mother.
While it seems somewhat unlikely for a novelist to become a nurse, anything is possible at this point. Also, Nurse Park didn’t seem particularly keen on keeping Mun-yeong and Gang-tae at the hospital either. Only time will tell if she is indeed a key player in all the drama!
