Gong Hyo Jin and Jo In Sung pair up for summer drama ‘It’s Okay, It’s Love’

Gong Hyo Jin is back! She has confirmed to star in upcoming drama It’s Okay, It’s Love along with Jo In Sung as her hero. The drama is penned by acclaimed writer Noh Hee Kyung who is working again with both the actors: she wrote That Winter, The Wind Blows that starred the latter while Gong Hyo Jin acted in her 2001 written drama Splendid Days. Well, I would have been all bright-eyed and bushy-tailed by this news, and the only thing that’s preventing me for going cent percent in that state is the genre—I’m not exactly sure but judging from the scriptwriter’s previous shows, it’s possibly a melodrama. Anyway, It’s Okay, It’s Love is a romantic medical drama about the life and love of modern people with psychiatric field playing a major role. Jo In Sung plays a mystery writer as well as a radio jockey who is suffering from obsessive-compulsive neurosis. Gong Hyo Jin stars as a first year fellow in the psychiatric department at a university hospital. She took this field as she could avoid late night work shifts and surgeries. Her life changes after she meets the hero. I think the two would make a great pair as both are brilliant actors, although I do think their acting style is very different, with her being very natural and low-key, while him being quite energetic.

The supporting cast includes Sung Dong Il who is steering away from his usual roles this time as he plays Gong Hyo Jin’s senior and her first love! Lee Kwang Soo (Nice Guy) will be playing a man who has Tourette syndrome while Kpop group EXO‘s D.O. takes on the role of a high school student who aspires to become a best-selling writer, who is understandably a fan of Jo In Sung’s writer character.

I’m just glad that we are not having any off-putting melo-elements in the plot. It’s Okay, It’s Love is another inclusion in the highly successful Wednesday-Thursday SBS slot as it follows You’re All Surrounded which starts after Three Days wraps up. That puts its premiere sometime in July. I don’t know about how the drama will turn out but it is always a pleasure to watch Gong Hyo Jin who simply sweetens the whole experience!

    The actor pairing is really intriguing. I’m a bit worried about the writer. She burned me with TWTB’s ending — but at the same time, I could see her potential. So all in all… I’m conflicted! 😀

      Yes…a fresh pairing indeed 🙂
      Lee Kwang Soo can be really funny….but as you know, I’m so much ignorant about Kpop….and I think EXO is the current hot favorite…right evez 😉
