The Subcommittee to Broadcast Deliberation of the Korea Communications Standards Commission submitted the tvN drama It’s Okay To Not Be Okay to the plenary session with the opinion of judicial sanctions.
They said, “Drama It’s Okay to Not Be Okay comically depicted the certain body part of a man and used explicit verbal abuse and the justification of sexual harassment. Even after considering that they were expressions to highlight the individuality of the drama characters, such content clearly revealed the lack of gender sensitivity of the production team.”
Then they added, “The excessive verbal abuse that is used in the drama that is aired during the youth viewing protection time has inevitably led to court sanctions.”
Meanwhile, It’s Okay to Not Be Okay gained unrivaled popularity, topping the popularity chart for the drama category for 8 consecutive weeks. It depicts a fantasy fairytale-like love story of a psych ward community worker who refuses to love under the weight of heavy life and a fairytale writer who doesn’t understand love.
