With popular 2020 K-dramas like The King: Eternal Monarch and The World of The Married already aired its series finale, fans are now anticipating the next series to watch this year. As for June 2020, we have two very exciting K-dramas coming up with It's Okay to Not Be Okay and Backstreet Rookie.

Kim Soo-hyun and Seo Ye-ji star in the tvN drama while Ji Chang-wook and Kim Yoo-jung star in the SBS drama.

When it comes to It's Okay to Not Be Okay, the makers have termed the show as a weird romantic comedy about love. Soo-hyun plays Moon Kang-tae, a community health worker at a psychiatric ward while Ye-ji is seen as Go Moon-young, a popular children's book author who suffers from antisocial personality disorder. Both characters are immune to the idea of love but eventually get closer to heal each other's emotional past wounds. Along with Soo-hyun and Ye-ji, It's Okay to Not Be Okay also stars Oh Jung-se as Moon Sang-tae, Kang-tae's older brother who suffered from Autism spectrum disorder and Park Kyu-young as Nam Joo-ri, a nurse who has a crush on Sang-tae.

On the other hand, Backstreet Rookie promises to make us laugh out loud as a cheesy romantic comedy using the enemies turned lovers trope. Chang-wook plays Choi Dae-hyun, a convenience store manager while Yoo-jung will be seen as Jung Saet-byul, a part-time employee at the same convenience store. Several disagreements occur between the pair before they eventually fall in love. Moreover, Backstreet Rookie also stars Han Sun-hwa as Yoo Yeon-joo, Dae-hyun's girlfriend and Do Sang-woo as Jo Seung-joon, son of the convenience store's owner.

I must commend the producers of Its not okay not to be okay. Moon gang te's Autistic older brother made the movie worthwhile. I was moved to tears at the tail end of episode 16. I love the movie. Congratulations to the producers. Oh Jung Se the autistic guy put up a great act.

I love Ji Chang Wook and watched all his drama. On the other hand, I am not a fan of Kim Soo Hyun but it recently changed because of the drama. I must say that It's Okay To Not Be Okay appeal to emotion very well and keep you hookek even with a completely different setting rather than the ordinary romantic dramas. This show is not your regular kdrama. Every character has a different story to tell and they have done a beautiful job in bringing out those emotions. Their acting are so perfect that you start to feel their emotion too. A journey to find love between people that used to lack love (this include patients). I am sure we all feel like this atleast once in our life time. I highly recommend this drama. :)

It’s okay to not be okay! backstreet rookie was, not to be offensive, bland. I found myself distracted from my screen in both the episodes. Also, the fact that a high school girl, and a guy in his 30s shared a kiss, made me uncomfortable. Whereas, IOTNBO was so aesthetically pleasing to watch too, and don’t forget the chemistry between the leads, the acting and the animations were on point too!

I was more excited for Backstreet rookie because the main cast are my favorite.But after I watched 2 eps of that I found that the drama genre is not my taste.But I will continue to watch, I can't miss my favorite actor's drama right ? For It's okay not to be okay,I was not that excited,but after 1 ep , I'm looking forward to see what will happen next.

I love both the Actors and actresses. due to extreme work pressure I will not fry my brain for Its ok to be ... I will watch it after a few days. now I wil watch Backstreet Rookie. moreover, I am a die hard fan of Ji Chang Wook . He is such a versatile actor with beautiful face. Action to emotion he glides smoothly from one to another.

I started It's ok 2 b not ok . but didn't enjoy. but Backstreet Rookie hooked me up. can't wait to see more.

I stopped watching The King after a few episode. and for the same reason, I stopped watching halfway in 1st episode of It's Ok. may be when there will be nothing to watch in kdrama world I will brainstorm for these two. I hope Its Ok will gear up. But, as for now, its ONLY .... BACKSTREET ROOKIE ....

Saw Backstret Rookie and desperately waiting to see next episodes. Started to watch 'Its ok' because I am a vivid kdrama fan. But just couldn't connect with the story yet. so stopped halfway in 1st episode. so at present I will go for BACKSTREET ROOKIE.

Definitely both! I love Its Okay not to be Okay because theh tackled mental health alot which is very timely and relevant. While, Backstreet Rookie is light and funny which I see as a balance to Its Okay not to be Okay. For the chemistry, I like the chemistry of both loveteams but is leaning more for Kim Soohyun's and Seo Yeji's gaze intensities. Support both dramas! ;)
