“The Good Bad Mother” is a heartwarming new comedy about a woman who must return to her motherly duties after her adult son unexpectedly becomes like a young child again. It was confirmed in January that Ra Mi Ran will be playing the role of the “bad mother” Young Soon, with Lee Do Hyun playing her son Kang Ho. Ahn Eun Jin will also star in the drama as Lee Mi Joo, Kang Ho’s longtime friend and sole support system, who moves back to her hometown due to financial struggles.
The drama will be helmed by director Shim Na Yeon of “Beyond Evil” and written by scriptwriter Bae Se Young of “Life Is Beautiful,” “Extreme Job,” and “Intimate Strangers.” In addition to the leads, the drama will also star Yoo In Soo, Jung Woong In, Choi Moo Sung, Seo Yi Sook, Jang Won Young, Kang Mal Geum, and more.
The newly released poster captivates with the stark contrast between the mother-son duo. Young Soon and Kang Ho take a commemorative photo in front of a bright pig barn. Kang Ho is dressed in a clean-cut suit, looking tidy from head to toe, and in his hands are a certificate and a bouquet of flowers. Meanwhile, Young Soon is smiling brightly as she holds tightly on to Kang Ho who has returned with great news. However, Kang Ho does not even have a trace of a smile on his face, raising questions about their relationship. Furthermore, the text, “Every mom in the world is bad,” adds to the intrigue.
Young Soon raised her son on her own while running a pig farm, and she became a “bad mom” in order to not pass on her hardships to her son. Ra Mi Ran will resonate with viewers as she depicts Young Soon’s transformation into a mother who becomes more strict the more sorry she is.
Kang Ho had no choice to base his life on his mother’s plans, and he eventually become a cold-hearted prosecutor. He turned away from even his mom in order to chase after success, but he becomes a child once again due to an unexpected accident and starts life anew with his mom.
The production team shared that the story of the mother-son duo will touch viewers with refreshing warmth, asking viewers to tune in to their special journey of finding their lost happiness.
“The Good Bad Mother” will have a total of 14 episodes and premiere on April 26 at 10:30 p.m. KST.
