Netizens’ hearts are warmed as they recall Oh Jung Se’s wholesome fan service. 

Recently, photos of It’s Okay to Not Be Okay actor Oh Jung Se spending an entire day creating fun memories with a special fan at Korea’s famous theme park Lotte World in 2020 resurfaced and drew keen attention. Oh Jung Se’s heartfelt gestures toward his fan received many compliments from netizens. 

Specifically, the fan’s name is Bae Boum Joon. He became a fan of Oh Jung Se after watching his character in the hit drama “It’s Okay to Not Be Okay”, especially the scene where Moon Sang Tae bursts into tears during the fansign of author Go Moon Young (Seo Ye Ji). Bae Boum Joon‘s sister said that her brother got upset after watching the scene as he felt sympathy for Oh Jung Se’s character.

Bae Boum Joon is diagnosed with a developmental disability, so his situation is similar to Oh Jung Se‘s character Moon Sang Tae, who struggles with an autism spectrum disorder in the drama. Therefore, Bae Boum Joon repeatedly expressed to his sister his wish to meet Oh Jung Se in person. After his sister reached out to Oh Jung Se, he happily agreed to meet up, putting aside his busy schedule to spend a day with his special fan.
