Questions about example sentences with, and the definition and usage of "Okay"

The meaning of "Okay" in various phrases and sentences

Q: What does Oh okay, so are those good things about Busan because the sea seems good but the dialect seems like it might be bad? 🤣

I can't understand at all😭
Is he asking if busan is good because there is the sea and people use dialect? mean?
A: it might be that he is asking a question. By the looks of the question he’s replying to someone who said something about Busan. He’s asking for clarification on something. Truthfully it’s not super clear, I’m just basing this on what I think he’s trying to say. You know sometimes when you talk you stutter a bit? This question is sort of like that. It’s not a grammatically correct question, just someone who is confused and asking for clarification
Q: What does I’ts okay for now. mean?
A: it means that person is comfortable with the way things are and they don't need anything to change for a while.
Q: What does I’m okay with it mean?

Q: What does okay then mean?
A: Alright. OK. I agree. That kind of thing.

OK let's do it.

A: Okay is very similar to 「いい」. For example:

However, if you're describing something, いい does not mean "okay". For example:

"Okay" can also mean 「大丈夫」.

You can also say "Okay" instead of 「そうです」to let people know that you are listening.

"Safe" is similar to 「安全」, but it's an adjective.

Example:
"Are guns safe?"
「銃は安全ですか?」
