Oh Jung Se gave It’s Okay Not To Be Okayfans another reason to love him and his character, Moon Sang Tae.
It’s Okay Not To Be Okay scored people’s love and attention upon its release that it eventually became the most popular romance genre show on Netflix in 2020. The New York Times also recognized it as one of the Best International Shows of 2020.
The K-drama tells the story of a psych ward caretaker who lives with his autistic older brother. They frequently leave a town and relocate to another since the older brother witnessed the murder of their mother.

In the series, Oh Jung Se plays the role of Moon Sang Tae, the older brother of Kim Soo Hyun’s Moon Gang Tae. Through his role, he inspired one fan who he recently spent his time with as part of his promise.
