‘It’s Okay, It’s Love’ Rises But Does Not Surpass ‘The Joseon Gunman’

 "The Joseon Gunman," starring Lee Jun Ki and Nam Sang Mi aimed for first place and scored it again. Although "It's Okay, It's Love' is also rising in the ratings, it did not defeat the frontrunner.

According to Nielsen Korea "It's Okay, It's Love" was in second place this week, reaching the double digits with a rating of 10.1 percent. But the ranking is very close for all three contenders

"The Joseon Shooter" scored 11.7 percent placing it on top. But "Fated To Love You" is close behind "It's Okay, It's Love" with 9.7 percent in the ratings.

This week "The Joseon Gunman," had the separated lovers come close to a reunion but notLee Jun Ki's character has reasons for keeping his identity secret. Lee Jun Ki also gets a little closer to finding out the secret behind the attack on Park Jin Han. Or so he thinks. Secret plots are usually more complicated than they first appear. Nam Sang Mi's character gathers all the information she knows about Lee Jun Ki's character and realizes he is her lost love. But he insists on pushing her away to protect her.

"It's Okay It's Love" is also drawing viewers with its top-notch cast and quirky romance between a neurotic mystery writer and a commitment-phobic psychiatrist. The comedy stars Jo In Sung, last seen in "That Winter The Wind Blows" and Gong Hyo Jin, last seen in the hit "The Master's Sun" as the lovers with a lot of issues to resolve. Things have been tense between them but this week her character began to warm up to his. She tried to throw him out of the house. Then he tried to throw her-and her roommates-out of the house, which it turns out he owns. Eventually, they declared a truce, which gives them a chance to get to know each other's better attributes.

Last but not least is 'Fated To Love You," the comedy starring Jang Nara, Jang Hyuk and Choi Jin Hyuk.  Things were going too well for Jang Nara and Jang Hyuk, even though they married under the worst circumstances and then learned to love each other. His rivals for power in the family and the company made their previous divorce agreement public. The family was shocked and Jang Nara fled her happy domestic life into the comforting arms of Choi Jin Hyuk, her neighbor and possibly her brother.
