Jo Gang Ja grew up in an environment where she developed a lot of bad habits and due to her lack of manners became a troublemaker at school. Years later, she is a mother of a teenage daughter and is working in gastronomy, yet her behaviour didn't significantly change over the years and even her customers notice her short temper.

One day, Gang Ja discovers that her daughter became the target bullying and decides to help her. For that purpose, she sneaks into school in school uniform and pretends to be a student.

Angry Mom manages to successfully do what very few shows can achieve: blending comedy with grim reality, all while keeping the characters and story rooted.

The premise of the show is inherently funny. You have a 30 something mother who goes back to play a high school, to her teenage daughter's mortification. And there's plenty of hijinks associated with the premise.

But the show also goes grim and dark, tackling bullying. No punches are pulled here, the reality of what harsh bullying and power abuse can result in is never held back. But the show expertly walks a fine line that keeps it from sinking too deep into the darkness but without shrinking how harsh reality is.

A definite recommend for any drama fan.

Those Korean drama are about middle-aged women who return to school/college for different reasons. Both women are confronted with the real lives of their children in the progress.

Jo Gang Ja and O A Ran were the only characters I liked in this drama... They were awesome even though Gang Ja is an absurd character. All the others were annoying AF and although the story wasn't bad, all the other characters ruined it for me...

Bok Dong really was the best thing in this drama!!!
Once again a heavy high school concept butI liked how showed appreciation towards the mothers.
The final episode though... so much happened yet they left us hanging and it felt a bit rushed.
What's with the guy with white shoes? He's related to the new president that we know.
The book from 2005, what was so important about it?
Also... they mentioned a case related to a certain Mr. Choi? Same family name as the prosecutor.
It feels like they should've explained those things.
Also, Tae Se's mother - didn't like her! If you're so worried about your child, bring him with you!
Don't leave him in the hands of the monster...

I'm pretty sure the guy in white shoes is working for the new prime minister. Sang Bok helped him get elected in exchange for getting out of prison but he was a liability so it's implied that he had him killed at the end.

I really liked that show but not to the point that I would want to watch it again in the future. I didn't think the acting was all that good, especially Ji Hyun-woo. I really liked Jisoo though and I'm looking forward of seeing more of his work.

This was a really good drama with a strong subject but something was missing for me to rate it with a 5. The acting was more than amazing. Really interesting plot. 4/5.

I was watching it, hoping it will get more fun and lighthearted. It's good, if you like depressing school and adult stuff. If you are looking for light fun drama, this isn't for you.

@jihye então eu pensei o mesmo. Mas quem exatamente é ele? Fiquei com uma duvida enorme. Eu adorei esse drama e espero mesmo que tenha uma nova temporada.

Great drama, I really like school drama and this one is very good and I'm glad that romance wasn't the main theme of the drama but the relationship of mother and daughter, between friends like School 2013

@lekapontes para mim ele é o cara que foi falar com o Presidente Hong assim que ele saiu da prisão mas quem ele é e o que faz fico em incógnita. Acho que talvez eles façam um segunda temporada para explorar isso.
