One needs to watch the episode to know if past experiences are worrying him or the problems he is facing in the present made him choose the psychiatric consultation. Is Kim Soo Hyun trying to reveal another mystery?

Revealing The Other Side of The Story

The drama had many instances where the other side of the story was communicated through the characters. Be it the story of Cinderella or the Boy Who Cried Wolf, the interpretations were completely different from what is being told in the mainstream.

Instead of victimizing Cinderella, protagonist Seo Ye Ji interpreted it as the failure on the part of Cinderella's father for leaving her alone and making her miserable. Moreover, according to Seo Ye Ji, Cinderella does not need the prince to save herself but all that she needs is to have faith in herself and work toward not being miserable.

So far the Boy Who Cried Wolf was interpreted as a story with a moral that you cannot fool someone all the time. But according to Seo Ye Ji, the boy in the mountain was crying wolf as he was alone and lonely. He thought that was the only way to get people to his side of the world.

Is it really okay to not be okay?

In the same way, Kim Soo Hyun looked strong and looked after those in the need, but in reality he might be keeping all his frustrations inside. Thus the drama might be trying to put across the message that even people who look perfectly fine might be in need of care and healing.

It's Okay To Not Be Okay is not a drama where two perfect people meet each other and lead a perfect life, nor about a perfect person helping the other to be perfect. Instead it is about two people with differences and imperfections understanding each other and making each other happy while being on each other's side while overcoming the hurdles. So, It's really Okay To Not Be Okay.

Do Hui Jae Not Seo Ye Ji's Mother?

Meanwhile, there is another theory doing rounds and that is about Do Hui Jae played by Jang Young Nam (who plays Seo Ye Ji's mother). Torn apart by evil intentions of Do Hui Jae and the fact that she killed Kim Soo Hyun's mother, the couple struggle to find their way back. Can Soo Hyun love Ye Ji even when he knows his mother was killed by hers?

The new theory is that Doe Hui Jae is not Seo Ye Ji's biological mother. Probably this would solve the problem and bring the couple back together. Whether this theory holds any truth will be revealed in the final episode of It's Okay To Not be Okay.
