Will There Be 'It's Okay to Not Be Okay' Season 2?

While we are used to American shows getting multiple seasons, that is not usually the case for Korean drama series. Most Kdrama shows have a one-and-done setup. They would plan stories for only one season and would no longer renew them no matter how popular they get. Creators and cast will be thankful to fans for the support, but they wouldn't sacrifice the story for monetary gains. We won't be surprised if 'It's Okay to Not Be Okay' will follow the same principle.

The first season tied the plot pretty nicely. We doubt that the second season would live up to fans' expectations if it ever gets renewed.

What Is The Plot Of "It's Okay to Not Be Okay" Season 2?

'It's Okay to Not Be Okay' chronicled the relationship between Ko Moon-young, a female children's book author, and two orphaned brothers Moon Sang-tae and Moon Gang-tae. The three developed a meaningful relationship and found comfort in each other.

However, their bond gets tested after it gets revealed that Moon-young's mother killed the orphaned brother's mother. The brothers eventually get justice as she goes to prison before the series ended.

Much of the first season's narrative wrapped nicely by the end of the first season. In an unlikely event that the Kdrama series gets renewed for another season, the show could explore the character's healing process. We might see Moon-young reconnect with her mother in prison.
