Premiere Watch: Green Mothers’ Club
Time slot: Wednesday-Thursday
Genre: Drama, friendship
Episode count: 16
There are a bunch more dramas coming this weekend, but in JTBC’s mid-week slot (taking Thirty-Nine’s place) is Green Mothers’ Club. Led by a cast of five women — Lee Yo-won, Chu Ja-hyun, Kim Gyu-ri, Jang Hye-jin, and Joo Min-kyung — the drama explores the ups and downs (and school politics) of motherhood. I feel like we’ve had one too many dramas about mothers, whether scary or wonderful, and their place in their child’s education, but Green Mothers’ Club does look like it will lean on the friendship angle. Regardless, I’ll be checking it out for Chu Ja-hyun alone — she wowed me in My Unfamiliar Family.
