'It's Okay to Not be Okay' Episode 13: Can Kang-tae and Mun-yeong overcome the past hatred for love?
'It's Okay to Not be Okay' Episode 12 put Kang-tae (Kim Soo-hyun) at the edge of a dangerous cliff. If he lost balance, he would lose not just Mun-yeong (Seo Ye-ji) but also his brother Sang-tae (Oh Jung-se). The fact that Sang-tae's trauma is connected to Mun-yeong's mother is at this point just a suspicion in Kang-tae's mind. So what happens when his worst fears come true? The promo of the upcoming episode hints at the crux of the episode being the answer to this question.
We see Kang-tae ask Mun-yeong after taking the family portrait if she would move away from OK Psychiatric Hospital and the town they live in right now. However, we do not get the answer in the promo. Then we also see how Mun-yeong wonders how her life would be if she were to be the daughter of someone like Ju-ri's mother who is loving and understanding. She even asked the same to Ju-ri as the two of them seem a lot friendlier than before. To this, Ju-ri responds that Mun-yeong's feet would have been broken (a figure of expression) for being a rude child.
Then, we also hear Kang-tae tell someone that he will not let anyone who disturbs or tries to hurt his family alone. He sounds determined and this is what could possibly push both Kang-tae and Mun-yeong to resolve the current conflict that the two of them are in. The promo also hints at the possibility of Mun-yeong losing her father and trying to run away from this loss but Kang-tae stops her and we see her in tears. Despite telling her manager Sang-in that her father is already dead and all that is left of him is his body, she might not feel the same when her father is actually so close to death.
Then, there is a scene also of Mun-yeong asking Kang-tae if she really does belong in his family. Why she is unsure of Kang-tae's feelings is something that we would only know as we watch the episode because even at the end of episode 12, the family picture that the three of them had taken was a symbol of how they have now come together.
