[HanCinema's News] "Mother of Mine" to Fill the Big Shoes of "My Only One"

2019/03/19 | 427 views | Permalink

On March 19th at the Imperial Palace Hotel, KBS2 began the official rollout for "Mother of Mine". The new weekend drama will start in the 8 PM KST timeslot previously occupied by "My Only One".

Literally titled in Korean as 'The Prettiest Daughter in the World', the drama concerns a mother, Seon-ja (played by Kim Hae-sook), and her three adult daughters, Mi-seon (played by Yoo Sun), Mi-ri (played by Kim So-yeon), and Mi-hye (played by Kim Ha-kyung). It's being tagged as a modern story intended to give comfort to both mothers and daughters.

Kim Hae-sook, who has a national reputation as a TV Mom, claims that Hae-sook is more realistic than her usual roles. She notes that Hae-sook both fights with her daughters as well as has fun with them. Hae-sook appears to be designed as a relatable character for viewers of all ages.

Director Kim Jong-chang, who is returning to drama directing after a long absence, also discussed the pressure of taking on the same timeslot occupied by "My Only One". He admitted that there was concern, but also hopefulness that "Mother of Mine" might hold on to some of "My Only One"'s viewers.

Director Kim Jong-chang noted that whatever pressure a director may feel, his focus is on making a thoughtful, realistic drama that doesn't rely on hackneyed tropes. "Mother of Mine" will start on March 23rd.
