As an avid fan of Korean dramas, besides the cast and the plot itself, we really appreciate the setting and the establishments used in a certain drama. Others became remarkable and had a place in our hearts because that place was something.
Even if we saw it at a glance, we can easily remember that particular place and suddenly reminisce about the drama that came to mind first. Made with unique exterior and interior designs and surroundings, it really made the viewers have a good impression throughout and would make them fall in love in that place even more.
Currently, the new tvN drama It’s Okay To Not Be Okay is making a buzz through some social media sites (eg. Facebook, Twitter), and is the talk of the down after airing its first two episodes. The drama was flooded with praises for its unique storytelling about mental patients and one’s own dark secrets, its top-notch cinematography that was captivating, the creative use of animations and transitions, and of course, the overflowing chemistry of the whole cast. The first two episodes really gave a good impression to the viewers and made them anticipate more of it these upcoming weeks.
Except for the things mentioned above, another thing that made the viewers talked a lot about it was the familiar setting of the hospital used in the drama known as “OK Psychiatric Hospital” which is giving a vibe of “Doldam Hospital” of the famous medical drama Doctor Romantic.
The scenes where the hospital was seen left the viewers in shock and can’t stop themselves to say that it has a huge resemblance to “Doldam Hospital”.
Even though there’s no confirmation yet that the set was the same, the interior design of the psychiatric hospital caught the attention of the viewers and mostly, the Doctor Romantic fans out there!
Truly, the resemblance is uncanny and it gives a nostalgic feeling of “Doldam Hospital”.
The only thing that was true is that we really missed “Doldam Hospital” so much and thanks to this drama, we will see this remarkable place more often these upcoming weeks and enjoy the place as a “rebranded” psychiatric hospital.
Have you watched the first two episodes of It’s Okay To Not Be Okay already? If not, what are you waiting for? See it for yourself and share if we have the same thoughts about this one!
