It's Okay, That's Love (Hangul: 괜찮아, 사랑이야; RR: Gwaenchanha, Sarangiya) is a 2014 South Korean television series starring Jo In-sung, Gong Hyo-jin, Sung Dong-il, Lee Kwang-soo and Do Kyung-soo. It aired on SBS from July 23 to September 11, 2014 on Wednesdays and Thursdays at 21:55 for 16 episodes.
Jang Jae-yeol is a writer of bestselling mystery novels and a radio DJ. Playful and a bit arrogant, he also suffers from obsessive–compulsive disorder. Ji Hae-soo is a psychiatrist on her first year of fellowship. Driven and ambitious with her career yet compassionate towards her patients, Hae-soo has a negative attitude towards love and relationships in her personal life. Once Jae-yeol and Hae-soo meet, there is much contention between them caused by their strong personalities and refusal to give in to each other. But slowly their bickering turns into love and they begin to learn how compatible they are. Jae-yeol and Hae-soo attempt to heal each other's deep-seated wounds, but their fledgling relationship takes a blow when they learn that Jae-yeol's mental health issues are more serious than they initially suspected.
- Jo In-sung as Jang Jae-yeol
- A bestselling mystery fiction novelist and radio DJ. Because of his troubled past and obsessive–compulsive disorder, Jae-yeol can only sleep in his own bathtub. From his first meeting with psychiatrist Ji Hae-soo on a talk show, they have had a combative relationship. When noise from ongoing construction beside his house interrupts his writing, and he learns that Hae-soo is currently a tenant living in a building he owns in Hongdae, Jae-yeol temporarily moves in with her and her housemates because of his fascination with her. As the two fall in love, they must later come to grips with Jae-yeol's undiagnosed schizophrenia.
- Gong Hyo-jin as Ji Hae-soo
- A first-year fellow in the psychiatry department at a university hospital. A smart and compassionate doctor but not very affectionate, Hae-soo self-diagnoses herself as having insecurity/anxiety issues, a fear of commitment and sex phobia.
- Sung Dong-il as Jo Dong-min
- Hae-soo's senior colleague at the hospital, who also happens to be her first love. His wife and children are based in the United States, and he has an amicable relationship with his ex-wife and colleague, Young-jin. After he becomes the court-appointed psychiatrist to a convict, Jang Jae-beom, whom he later finds out is Jae-yeol's brother, Dong-min sets out to find the truth behind the crime.
- Lee Kwang-soo as Park Soo-kwang
- A cafe waiter with Tourette syndrome. Soo-kwang and Dong-min are Hae-soo's housemates, and Dong-min in particular is a good friend to Soo-kwang, often calming him down during his panic attacks. Soo-kwang is unlucky in love and keeps getting dumped by girls, but the one he can't quite get over is So-nyeo, who is not only a minor but who openly has several boyfriends at the same time.
- Do Kyung-soo (D.O.) as Han Kang-woo
- A high school student who's a big fan of Jae-yeol's and keeps bugging his idol to read the manuscripts he's writing, since Kang-woo aspires to become a famous author like him someday. He and his mother are frequently beaten by his alcoholic father. Kang-woo is later revealed to be Jae-yeol's younger self, a manifestation of his schizophrenic break due to trauma and guilt. Jae-yeol has been seeing Kang-woo for the past three years, ever since Jae-beom stabbed him.
- Jin Kyung as Lee Young-jin
- Another psychiatrist and Hae-soo's immediate boss at the hospital. Young-jin still has unresolved feelings towards her ex-husband Dong-min, since the breakdown of their marriage was partially caused by her decision to focus on her career and not have children.
- Lee Sung-kyung as Oh So-nyeo
- A troubled girl who got expelled from high school and was abandoned by her mother. So-nyeo works at a cafe alongside Soo-kwang; she takes advantage of his feelings for her and uses him to give her money and buy her things, even though he knows she's seeing someone else. So-nyeo eventually falls for Soo-kwang and begins dating him exclusively, then decides she wants to become a psychiatrist like Hae-soo.
- Yang Ik-june as Jang Jae-beom
- Jae-yeol's older brother who served eleven years in prison after being found guilty of killing their abusive stepfather. His defense attorney at the time found the verdict and sentence needlessly harsh, which came about due to a tough-on-juveniles judge and an ambitious prosecutor. Jae-beom has maintained his innocence through the years, but after being released, he repeatedly stabs his brother, and gets sentenced to another 30 months in jail. Violent and unstable, Jae-beom can't wait to get out of prison and get his revenge on Jae-yeol, whom he believes is the real murderer.
- Cha Hwa-yeon as Ok-ja
- Jae-yeol and Jae-beom's mother. She and Jae-yeol have a close, affectionate relationship. Her older son Jae-beom believes that Ok-ja gave false testimony against him at his trial in order to save Jae-yeol. But as Dong-min later learns from Jae-beom's defense attorney, Ok-ja was the true culprit, setting fire to her unconscious husband after one of her sons non-fatally stabbed him (the man's cause of death was asphyxia). The psychologist who examined her at the time diagnosed Ok-ja as suffering from dissociative disorder, a defense mechanism which made her forget what happened and what she'd done.
- Tae Hang-ho as Tae-yong
- Jae-yeol's best friend from childhood and an employee at his publishing house. Tae-yong betrays Jae-yeol by giving Pul-ip a galley proof of his latest book, but Jae-yeol forgives him.
- Kim Mi-kyung as Hae-soo's mother
- She takes good care of her severely handicapped husband, but is also having a decades-long affair with another man, Mr. Kim. Hae-soo's aversion to physical intimacy stems from her knowledge of her mother's affair.
- Choi Moon-kyung as Ji Yoon-soo
- Hae-soo's older sister. She is Soo-kwang's coworker at the cafe.
- Choi Seung-kyung as Oh Do-deuk
- Yoon-soo's husband.

- The director (PD) of a TV talk show, and Hae-soo's boyfriend of almost a year. They break up when she learns that he's been unfaithful to her.

Screenwriter Noh Hee-kyung and director Kim Kyu-tae said that by realistically exploring characters from a romantic comedy standpoint, their drama also aimed to address the discrimination and social stigma attached to people with mental health issues and other minorities. This was Noh and Kim's fourth collaboration; actor Jo In-sung had previously worked with them on That Winter, The Wind Blows (2013), while actress Gong Hyo-jin had starred in Noh's Wonderful Days (2001).
At 1:00 a.m. on June 19, 2014, the van Gong Hyo-jin was riding became involved in a three-vehicle rear-end collision with two trucks; she was on her way back to Seoul after filming in Yongin, Gyeonggi Province. This resulted in a left arm fracture, a knee injury, and scratches on Gong's face. After recuperating, she and costar Jo In-sung later left for a shoot in Okinawa, Japan where their characters go on a romantic trip. Gong's fractured arm was incorporated into the story.

When the 30-second teaser trailer for the drama was released online on June 25, 2014, netizens pointed out that it had been plagiarized from the short film Olive Juice by New York-based video artist Celia Rowlson-Hall. On June 26, production company GT Entertainment admitted the charge and apologized through a press release, and the teaser trailer was deleted from the official website.
Alongside its original broadcast on SBS, the drama aired simultaneously on Chinese online video platforms Youku and Tudou. By July 24, 2014, it had 1.2 million hits on Youku and 1 million hits on Tudou; it topped the Korean drama charts on Youku and was the 12th most popular among all content uploaded on that site, and had 5 times more hits on Tudou than other recently aired Korean dramas.
In the Philippines, the program is one of the Korean dramas slated to air on ABS-CBN's Primetime Bida evening block in 2015.
