Understanding K-Drama: Bullying In Schools

By Julie Jones | April 15, 2015 12:04 PM EDT

In the drama "Angry Mom" Kim Hee Sun plays a mom so desperate to protect her child from bullying that she enrolls at her school pretending to be a student. Her character Jo Kang Ja is the mom every timid kid wants. She's tough enough to protect her own or at least bloody some noses while trying to. But that's because she was a bully when she went to school. She demanded respect.

But when Jo Kang Ja tries to protect her daughter, she comes up against a terrifying network of power and influence that prevents her from achieving justice, at least right away.

"Angry Mom" is only the latest k-drama or k-film to focus on bullying.
