On March 24th, JTBC’s new Wednesday-Thursday drama “Bad Mother”, released its main poster with Ra Mi Ran and Lee Do Hyun.
“Bad Mother”, directed by Shim Na Yeon, and written by Bae Se Young is about an unexpected accident with a mother, Young Soon (Ra Mi Ran), who had no choice but to be a bad mother to her children. It is a touching healing comedy in which a son, Kang Ho (played by Lee Do Hyun) searches for lost happiness. The story of the mother and child who set out to find true happiness only after everything is reset gives a touching feeling with a pleasant laugh.
Director Shim Na Yeon, who directed “The Host”, who was honored with the Best Drama Award in the TV category at the 57th Baeksang Arts Awards, and writer Bae Se Young, who was recognized for their sensuous writing skills through the films “Life is Beautiful”, “Extreme Job” and “Perfect Others”, collaborated on this project. It will also feature Yoo In Soo, Jung Woong In, Choi Moo Seong, Seo Yi Suk, Kim Won Hae, Jang Won Young, Kang Mal Geum, Baek Hyun Jin, and Hong Bira. Cho Jin Woong, who will work on the small screen for the first time in 7 years adds to the anticipation.
In the poster, the two contrasting faces of Young Soon and Kang Ho with sad smiles draw attention. A pure and bright smile that contrasts with a cold and cynical expression makes us guess the change that has come to Kang Ho. Above all, the phrase ‘I’ll be a bad mother just once’ added to Young Soon’s complex and subtle face, which is bound to become more bitter to protect her child. Young Soon decides to be a bad mother again for her son, who has gone back to being a child.
Ra Mi Ran plays Young Soon, a bad mother who has lived a tenacious life to protect her children. Young Soon, who raised her son alone while running a pig farm, took on the role of a bad mother in order not to pass on her pain.
Lee Do Hyun transforms into Kang Ho, the son of a prosecutor who became a child in an unexpected accident. Kang Ho, whose mother’s plan could not help but become his own life, harbored his own secrets and became a cold-blooded prosecutor. Turning away from his mother and running for success, he becomes a child in an unexpected accident and lives a new life with a bad mother.
The production team of “Bad Mother” said, “Please look forward to the decisive event that changed the lives of Young Soon and Kang Ho, and the passionate acting of Ra Mi Ran and Lee Do Hyun,” adding, “The special journey of the two to face the beginning of happiness at the end of misfortune will add a touching emotion to a pleasant smile.”
“Bad Mother” will premiere on April 26th and will have 14 episodes.
