CAN WE PLEASE BRING BACK THE ORIGINAL???
It’s Okay It’s Love(2014)
This drama is tragically and beautifully written. We rarely see the deglamorized reality of Mental Illness and the stigmas that come with it. I would highly suggest this drama to everyone! You don’t even have to be a drama fan to appreciate this amazingly well written story.
In some east Asian countries, mental illness carries even more of a stigma then it does in the UK and the US, which makes this film so much more important.
Ok I cried this drama needs so much more attention
- The two male leads both suffer from mental illnesses
- The male lead has very severe schizophrenia
- He also has PTSD and can only sleep in his bathtub
- His friend (the second male) has Tourette’s which is consistently portrayed
- They DO NOT HOLD BACK on the ableist statements and remarks posed to the characters at all
- Nearing the end of the drama the male lead completely loses his grasp on reality with a severe relapse
- Neither character gets miraculously 100% cured (both are indicated to still take medication)
- They make peace with their illnesses and it’s a happy ending
The drama’s writers were also recently given a plaque for their efforts in raising awareness for this, and it breaks the stereotype of the conventional ‘perfect family’ K-drama. Seriously, go watch this.

Oh so many reasons.
1) it equates the anger of the oppressed to the hate of their oppressors.
2) it blames oppressed groups for their oppression. Bigotry doesn’t exist because people hate bigots. It exists because oppressed people oppose it. It exists because of bigots and because of privileged folks being complicit or tacitly condoning systems of oppression.
3) it’s fundamentally untrue. Hatred of oppression doesn’t lead to more hatred; it leads to progress.
4) it is used to attack any attempt by oppressed people to obtain liberation. Point out that something or someone is repulsively racist and all of a sudden you’re “breeding more hate”.
It’s a fundamental misrepresentation of reality that blames victims and excuses fucked up behavior.
EDIT *before my reply because it’s important* before reading this post I would have had a hard time articulating why “hate breeds more hate” is a weird thing to say to activists. Because, obviously, people hating each other causes lots of bad things. I would have thought it was a weird thing to say, but if someone had said it I would’ve been like “Yeah…I mean…I guess…”
Because the sentence subtly and dismissively shifts the action and opinion of the activist away from the oppression and on to the people they’re arguing with about the oppression. It’s a way of winning an argument by changing the argument..very clever. And I never would have picked up on it without this post.
So, to continue with what I originally wrote…
Hatred of a terrible thing is one of the most wonderful human emotions. Anger at inequality and oppression LITERALLY CREATED AMERICA…smh.
