It’s Okay That’s Love turned out to be one of my favorite dramas of the season. The characters were cute, warm, and relatable even though the cases were extreme. The setting was a sanitarium and all the characters had mental and emotional problems. But honestly, I like to see abusive people get what they deserve and I never once felt that the imprisoned brother didn’t deserve it, even though he wasn’t the one who killed his abusive stepfather.
JaeBeom was just as abusive as his stepfather. But 14 years in prison is rather extreme and JB spent the entire time plotting revenge on JY who pointed him out as the murderer to protect his mom. JB probably would have gotten out sooner if he didn’t keep attacking JayYeol. One of the attacks resulted in JY becoming schizophrenic. But both brothers got treatment and the family was reunited.
JaeYeol finally accepted the fact that GangWoo wasn’t real. The contradiction was in the wounds on his feet. No matter where or when GW appeared his feet never changed. So JY washed GW’s feet and gave him the shoes that HaeSoo bought. He thanked GW for helping him through a very difficult time in his life and confessed that he was always afraid of his stepfather and brother even though he didn’t show it. But it broke JY’s heart to let go of his illusion.
Her mom insisted that HaeSoo go away for a year while JaeYeol got treatment but their love never diminished. JaeYeol and HaeSoo got married when she returned. Soon she was pregnant and not so happy about that because of her career. But JaeYeol was overjoyed and couldn’t wait to brag about it.
KwangSoo was adorable with his new girlfriend and JaeYeol got back to writing and broadcasting. No matter how bad things get there is always hope. Viki
