Angry Mom is a 2015 South Korean television series starring Kim Hee-sun, Kim Yoo-jung, and Ji Hyun-woo. I was skeptical when I was reading its plot, I find it unrealistic in this generation for a mother ( Jo Kang Ja played by Kim Hee Seon) to go back to school in disguise as a student just to find out the culprit who harm her daughter Oh Ah Ran (played by Kim Yoo Jeong). And what argue me to watch it, is the fact that the story line is original (correct me if I'm wrong but I haven't seen any similar or related synopsis with this drama). And this drama tackle the very sensitive yet very common case in South Korea which is School Bullying. Jo Kang Ja was force to do this initiative due to lack of trust to the government justice. She felt like no one is listening and interested to help her out.
She confronted the school management for the matter, the police, and the society in general. And still no one cared. And because of her love she then becomes determined to save her daughter in her own means, and stop the bullies. Thanks to her youthful appearance, she managed to enroll in her daughter's elite high school to investigate the bullying happening in school with the help by her best friend Han Gong Joo who acted as her mother. Later on she will be getting help from her freshly hired teacher Park No Ah (Ji Hyun Woo), and her new friends at school.
As they reveal how deep they will have to dig to uproot the evil and lies the school has keep for a long time. Because beyond bullying, Jo Kang Ja will uncover some deep rooted corruption and dark secrets, running all the way to the higher-ups of Korean society. It takes things a little bit extreme, but I wouldn’t say it’s a depressing or scary drama because there are enough elements of comedy to lighten your mood and some romance which makes you enjoy too, but unfortunately it is not the focus of this drama so don't get your hopes too high okay? So there you go this drama somehow balance their synopsis really well. Which makes this drama so interesting to watch in each episodes!
|Jo Kang Ja bff Han Gong Joo. She makes me laugh out loud. Shes the comedy Queen.|
|Jo Kang Ja, Hong Sang Tae and Go Bok Dong (Jo Kang Ja beat this two guys).|
|Mother and daughter.|
Spoiler Alert! Read at your own risk!!!
|Hong Sang Tae and Oh Ah Ran at Sang Tae room one of my fave scene!|
Hong Sang-tae played by BARO of idole group B1A4 and Oh Ah Ran will developed a mutual feelings towards each other. And Oh Ah Ran is not Ahn Dong Chil (played by Kim Hee-Won) daughter rather than he is her niece. Gosh, you have no idea how disturb I am during those episodes where Oh Ah Ran tries to ask Ahn Dong Chil if he is her father. I'm like please NO WAY!!!, and I glad he isn't. And oh the saddest part is when Jo Kang Ja husband died due to bad constructions at the school annex where in he was the head engineer of the said construction. He died trying to save Oh Ah Ran. He was such a good guy and his role was a total waste (I think). I wonder why the writer think to have his role end that way. Anyway, to there you go my Spoiler Alert!
MY RATINGS: 7/10
