Angry Mom: Episode 14
by | April 30, 2015 | 168 Comments
I… I… I’m still a little emotionally traumatized by this episode. I hope I can get it together to write some comments, because I feel gutted and wrecked. In a good way, I swear, though this one really is a doozy. Every victory that was won yesterday causes a series of blowbacks that take their... More »

Angry Mom: Episode 13
by | April 29, 2015 | 75 Comments
What a supremely satisfying episode. It’s still early enough that things aren’t yet wrapped up and there’s still lots of fight left in store for us, but this episode is chock-full of important developments and major character progressions. I love the way this drama finds human touches in (almost) everybody, so that even when a... More »

Angry Mom: Episode 12

The thing about a secret identity is, you kinda have to try and keep it secret to use it to your advantage. As the group of people in the know grows larger by the second, Kang-ja’s situation becomes even more precarious with every move she makes. Thankfully there’s also an upside to having more people...

Angry Mom: Episode 11

I love it when a team comes together. We’ve already had a lot of solid teamwork in play, but with more people cottoning on, the bigger the inner circle gets. And while Kang-ja has been a fine solo crusader all this while, it’s gratifying to see her acknowledge that she could use some help, and... More »

Angry Mom: Episode 10

There is so much awesome in this episode. And by awesome, I mean Bok-dong, who has totally earned his chance to shine. I’m considering it a nice reward since I’ve been holding my breath since the cliffhanger at the end of the last episode. Today we’re done dancing around the secrets and the confrontations, and...

Angry Mom: Episode 9
by | April 15, 2015 | 94 Comments
What a funny, warm, and touching episode, all rolled into one. While keeping Kang-ja’s identity under wraps is a huge component to the entire premise, it’s hilarious to watch more and more people getting in on the secret, and reacting to it in different—sometimes conflicting—ways. It’s a juggling game that’s rife with comic opportunities, but... More »

Angry Mom: Episode 8

We focus almost entirely on the students and Kang-ja’s quest to right wrongs from the inside, and it makes for a great episode. It isn’t anything new to point out that the world is corrupt, but watching children accept that as fact is another thing entirely, and the wave of disillusionment just makes Kang-ja more... More »

Angry Mom: Episode 7

One step forward, one step back? Or maybe it’s one step sideways—Kang-ja makes impressive headway in her crusade to right this series of wrongs, but she’s about to find out that there’s much more than one bad egg spoiling this bunch. There’s a whole network of selfishness, corruption, and intrigue, and she’s only scratched the... More »

Woohoo, now that a certain split personality love triangle is off my plate, I get to join in on the Angry Mom party. I really love Kim Hee-sun in this role, not to mention the hilarity of watching her mix it up with a whole new generation of young actors and blend right in among... More »

Angry Mom: Episode 5

Mother-daughter hijinks! Angry Mom has set up the cover story and forced the daughter into going with it, true, but nobody said the daughter couldn’t throw a few wrenches into the works or make Mom’s job harder. It’s a hoot to see that while Kang-ja rules the school and has even the bullies’ bullies trembling... More »

Angry Mom: Episode 4
by | March 26, 2015 | 99 Comments
With every episode, this show gets darker, more emotionally charged, and harder-hitting. It’s not without its funny moments, but the humor feels more like a necessary interlude between intense scenes, like a chance to take a breath before diving back into the grimness of reality. I’m a bit amazed to realize we’re only two weeks... More »
