If there's one character that gets me so riled up whenever I watch It's Okay To Not Be Okay, it's, without a doubt, Nam Joo Ri. In the drama, Joo Ri is the soft-spoken nurse who has a major crush on Moon Gang Tae (Kim Soo Hyun). On the outside, she's mild and sweet but once she comes face-to-face with her childhood ~nemesis~ Ko Mun Yeong (Seo Ye Ji), damn does she get vicious!

With her ~good girl~ exterior, she makes an even more effective kontrabida, which is given justice by the talented rising actress Park Gyu Young.

So, we dug up a bit about Gyu Young and found some really interesting facts about her! Read on, below:
