This Mother’s Day, we list out some Korean dramas that feature powerful mothers and maternal figures—from a mother posing as a high schooler to save her daughter from bullies to a mother fighting back against the stigma of being a single parent.
1. Hi Bye, Mama!
Hi Bye, Mama! centres around Cha Yu-ri (Kim Tae-hee) who died five years ago in a car accident while still pregnant with her daughter.
She remains a ghost because she simply can’t leave behind her husband and child. She’s given a chance to become human again. But she must—as a ghost—undergo a series of trials in 49 days to win back her place in the family or she will never be human again.
