WARNING: *Major* spoilers ahead for Episodes 1 and 2 of It's Okay To Not Be Okay! Don't read if you haven't seen the latest episodes yet.
It's Okay To Not Be Okay, our new favorite K-drama, will be airing its third and fourth episodes this weekend! IOTNBO—because, seriously, that title is a mouthful—tells the story of a selfless health worker at a psychiatric ward named Gang Tae (Kim Soo Hyun) and a children's book author with an antisocial personality disorder named Mun Yeong (Seo Ye Ji). Gang Tae's older brother Sang Tae (Oh Jung Se), who has ASD or Autism Spectrum Disorder, is a huge fan of Mun Young's work.
As it turns out, Gang Tae and Mun Yeong already met each other as kids, when she saved him from drowning many years ago. They even have this dreamy scene in a meadow (let's forget about those poor butterflies for a bit), and we see hopeful Gang Tae following expressionless Mun Yeong around in various flashbacks.
We're sure you're curious about the child actors who portrayed these roles so well, so here, meet Kim Soo In and Moon Woo Jin!
Young Mun Young: Kim Soo In
Born in 2009, Soo In is a child actress and model. She had small roles in Weightlifting Fairy (2016) and While You Were Sleeping (2017) and got her big break as the younger version of Shin Ye Eun in He Is Psychometric (2019). Before IOTNBO, she also appeared in A Piece Of Your Mind (2020)!
Young Gang Tae: Moon Woo Jin
