WARNING: *Major* spoilers ahead for It's Okay To Not Be Okay! Don't read if you haven't seen the latest episodes yet.
In the latest episodes of It's Okay To Not Be Okay, we were able to see the mansion Mun Yeong grew up in, also known as the "cursed castle" that her father built in the middle of a forest! Despite her dark past—which is connected to the mansion—Mun Yeong (Seo Ye Ji) stays there because she wants to be close to Gang Tae (Kim Soo Hyun). The mansion is huge, imposing, a little run-down, and is honestly scary—especially at night!
Here's a fun fact: The house's exterior doesn't *actually* exist. Like a lot of Korean drama sets, it was built by an amazing production crew on the Sanida Cafe grounds, which is located at 109-128 Chilbong-ro, Hojeo-myeon, Wonju-si, Gangwon-do, South Korea.
According to the Sanida Cafe website, a gate was installed at the grounds' entrance and the doorway of the "mansion" was built on the premises. The huge mansion we see in the series? That's all CGI!

It's Okay To Not Be Okay tells the story of selfless health worker Gang Tae (Kim Soo Hyun) and a children's storybook writer with an antisocial personality disorder named Mun Yeong (Seo Ye Ji). The show also stars Oh Jung Se as Gang Tae's older brother Sang Tae, who has autism spectrum disorder (ASD).
