A scene from SBS drama "I'm Okay! Daddy" (tentative title) [SBS]
But a typical and easy-to-relate-to story line does not necessarily guarantee it sympathy and understanding from its viewers. Chae-ryeong, the heroine that Moon will play, seems to be a mix of the two main characters from 2009 SBS drama “Brilliant Legacy”: the bright, innocent girl Goh Eun-seong (Han Hyo-joo) and the arrogant rich boy Sun-woo Hwan (Lee Seung-ki). Other characters in the drama were portrayed as overly materialistic or brazen, as if to increase the burden for Gi-hwan. Jong-seok’s (Jun Tae-su) weird obsession over Chae-ryeong which then led to an almost-abduction of her did not make much sense except that it was aimed at getting Gi-hwan get involved in the messy situation. Overall, the start to "I'm Okay! Daddy" leaves a lot to be desired for compared to its predecessors “Coffee House” which had a unique story line and “Dr. Champ” that developed its story convincingly. But then again, the real story is yet to begin as this drama is really about how “daddy’s little girl” Chae-ryeong matures along with her friends and they have yet to show on screen so we will just have to be a little more patient.
