Angry Mom: Episode 4
by | March 26, 2015 | 91 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 »

Angry Mom: Episode 3
by | March 25, 2015 | 59 Comments
Well, nobody ever said being a thirtysomething posing as a high schooler wouldn’t be exasperating—especially when you’ve got a wide-eyed authority figure determined to save you from yourself, and you can’t convince him that you don’t need saving, thank you very much. Our angry mom makes good headway into her investigation, but the trick is... More »

Angry Mom: Episode 2
by | March 19, 2015 | 62 Comments
Kim Hee-sun is such a badass, I don’t even know how she’s kept it under control all these years playing nice girly heroine types. She’s not the type of badass who begs you to admire her badassery from every angle; she’s the kind who just is, and you admire from afar while she just couldn’t... More »

Angry Mom: Episode 1
by | March 18, 2015 | 66 Comments
Angry Mom is darker than I’d expected it to be, but in a totally welcome way—it’s stark at times and tinged with the harshness of reality, yet has a lot of promise for cuteness and warmth as well. I say promise because there wasn’t a whole lotta comedy in the first episode, which was spent... More »

Even cuter than the actors behind housewife-goes-back-to-high-school drama Angry Mom is the cartoon avatar for the lead, played by Kim Hee-sun, wielding a knife in one hand and a frying pan in the other. Don’t mess with angry ajumma! Kim Yoo-jung is mostly smiles behind the scenes of the poster shoot, though I expect to... More »

by | March 13, 2015 | 39 Comments
Going back to high school is bad enough as it is; if teachers pinched my cheeks I’d be perpetually angry too.

by | March 11, 2015 | 55 Comments
I just can’t get over how young Kim Hee-sun looks. I mean, I know she looks exactly the same as she did in the nineties, but she actually looks like a high-schooler standing next to these kids! It’s preposterous. I want whatever she’s having. Here’s a look at MBC’s new Wednesday-Thursday drama Angry Mom, about... More »

Baro turns bad boy for Angry Mom
by | January 28, 2015 | 43 Comments
Aw, but Baro is so sweet! How will he play a bad boy? I guess after playing a sweet wallflower in Answer Me 1994 and a sweet kid with a learning disability in God’s Gift–14 Days, it’s time for him to switch it up as an actor? Whether he can pull it off remains to... More »

2014 SBS Drama Awards
by | December 31, 2014 | 149 Comments
And now for SBS’s awards! I thought yesterday’s ceremony over at MBC was a bit lackluster, but maybe that was more about not really loving MBC’s dramas of the past year and not having seen very many of their winners. It’s a different story over at SBS, which had a bunch of shows (and more... More »
