'It's Okay It's Love' Holds First Place Against New Dramas

The 15th episode of  "It's Okay, It's Love" rated higher than the two new dramas that it competed with.

Nielsen Korea said that the episode rated 11.4 percent, which is 2.0 percent higher than last week's last episode. In this episode, Jang Jae Yeol, played by Jo In Sung, is finally forced to admit that his friend Han Kang Woo was not real. Psychiatrist Hae Soo uses logic to convince him that his young friend, played by EXO's Do Kyung Soo, is the delusional result of his mental problems. It's a hard realization to make but it's a hopeful one as it is the first step toward his possible recovery. And that's a good thing. For a man with as many problems as Jang Jae Yeol, he could not have found a better person to fall for than a caring psychiatrist.

But that doesn't mean it's easy for her.

The two new dramas in the running are "Blade Man" and "My Spring Days."

"My Spring Days" starring Girls Generation's Sooyoung and actor Kam Woo Sung, took second place with ratings of 8.1 percent for its first episode. In a story similar to the American film "Return To Me," Kam Woo Sung is a widower. Unlike the American film, in this drama the main male character has children to rear. His wife's heart was donated for a transplant and Sooyoung plays the young woman who gets that heart. Some say that transplanted organs bring with them the emotions of the person who dies and this may be what ultimately draws Sooyoung's and Kam Woo Sung's characters together. She gets a second chance at life. He gets a second chance at love.

"Blade Man," starring Lee Dong Wook and Shin Se Kyung, received 6.6 percent of the viewer ratings. The drama started out with Lee Dong Wook playing possibly the world's most unlikable boss. He physically abuses his employees only to lure them back with financial rewards. He's so irritable it's a miracle he can stand to get out of bed in the morning. He's also become hypersensitive to smells, hating most of them. The one smell he really likes seems to be associated with Shin Se Kyung. He finds out that his company bought hers without her permission and seeks to find a way for them to have more contact. Although the drama is billed as a fantasy about a man who sprouts knives, most of the injury he inflicts in the first episode, he did with his fists and his words.
