JTBC’s “Bad Mom” (literal title) is a healing comedy drama about a woman who has no choice but to take on the role of a “bad mom” and her son who has become a child once again due to an incident. The drama will tell the story of how they try to find happiness once again and is said to have an emotionally moving storyline mixed with light, comedic scenes as well. The drama will be directed by directed by Shim Na Yeon, who worked on “Beyond Evil,” and written by Bae Se Young.
Ra Mi Ran will take on the role the tenacious “bad mom” Young Soon who does everything she can to protect her child. Completely alone, she manages a pig farm while raising her son, turning herself into a bad mom in order to shield her son from any pain she has had to go through. Viewers can anticipate a very moving performance from Ra Mi Ran as she portrays a woman who has built up her walls so high to shield herself and her child. Ra Mi Ran commented, “Some great actors and staff have come together and are working hard on this project. It’s a warm drama full of laughter and emotions.”
Lee Do Hyun will play Kang Ho, a cold prosecutor who suddenly becomes a child again due to an incident. Not wanting the life his mother Young Soon led, he ran away to chase after success as a prosecutor, turning his back on his mother. But after he becomes a child once again, he gets another chance to live a new life with Young Soon and find the happiness he had been missing before. Lee Do Hyun shared, “I’m so happy and excited to be able to make this great project with such great people. There are many difficult moments, but thanks to the other actors, directors, and writers I’m working with, this will be a challenge that is more exciting than scary.”
Lastly, Ahn Eun Jin will play Kang Ho’s long-time friend and sole support system Mi Joo. Mi Joo has a big heart and cannot stand injustice, and she gives her all when it comes to love and honor. She falls on hard times financially, returning to her hometown broke only to once again meet Kang Ho, who has now turned into a child. With this meeting comes big changes for Mi Joo. “The script was so interesting,” Ahn Eun Jin commented. “I really wanted to participate [in this project] as I watched Mi Joo live her life brightly and confidently even in the face of hardships and adversity. I’m so excited to meet you all in ‘Bad Mom.'” She then added, “I was really looking forward to working with director Shim Na Yeon. Thanks to the other actors, we are having fun filming in an enjoyable atmosphere. Please show lots of love and interest.”
