A clearer image of our main characters' backstory is starting to form in the second teaser for "Secret Mother", as the previously teased kidnapping of the heroine's daughter is featured. Meanwhile, the increasing unease of the neighborhood mothers with the admissions caretaker may be leading them to criminal acts of their own.
I've been going through all sorts of scenarios in my mind as to what happens in the series and what may have happened in the characters' past, but my main one is that the like-a-sister of heroine Eun-yeong (Kim So-yeon) may have kidnapped Yoon-jin's (Song Yoon-ah) daughter, which may even be her own. We see Yoon-jin gathering ransom and begging someone being resuscitated to wake up and tell her something. Min-joon, Yoon-jin's son, is also in danger, although that could possibly be when he meets Eun-young.
Aside from the main mystery, I'm just very intrigued by the neighborhood mothers. They sound confused by Eun-yeong's job, but also curious. Myung Hwa-sook (Kim Jae-hwa) even asks her how much she is paid, potentially showing interest in her services. On the other hand, someone tries to run her over, and Kang Hye-kyung (Seo Young-hee) expresses her unease. Do these women have things to hide that a third party could so easily find? I'm sure they have staff in their home, so why the paranoia over another service person?
The teaser also gives us our first glimpse of detective Ha Jeong-wan (Song Jae-rim). He is wondering about whether a woman is still holding on, while looking at a card belonging to Yoon-jin. He is also the one wondering if a woman, probably Eun-yeong, is a suspect. I hope you're as perceptive as we need you to be, Jeong-wan, because I want answers.
We still have no information on or a look at husband-dearest, which is only making me all manner of suspicious, but I just need to remember that we're only two weeks from the premiere and be patient. "Secret Mother" will be airing starting May 12th on SBS.
