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~ Ku 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. Yes, we all have to remember that Joo Ri is a fictional character and that the actress who plays her is a totally different (read: REAL) person from the woman we see on-screen. So, we dug up a bit about Gyu Young and found some really interesting facts about her! Read on, below:

1. Gyu Young was born on July 27, 1993, which means she's turning 27 in a few weeks!

2. She actually graduated from the prestigious Yonsei University and studied under the Department of Clothing and Environment. How cool is that?!
