With its latest ratings breakthrough of 32.6% "Mother of Mine" is attracting a lot of attention. So for viewers not caught up with the drama, a basic rundown of its characters and story may be in order.
The title character, Seon-ja, who is played by Kim Hae-sook, is a woman in her early sixties. She runs a beef bone stew restaurant, and had to struggle to raise her three daughters alone.
Mi-ri (played by Kim So-yeon) is the second daughter. She's a high-powered career woman who is primarily motivated by success on her strength, having seen her mother struggle to take of her children. Tae-joo (played by Hong Jong-hyun) is a new employee at her company with whom she keeps getting intertwined.
Mi-hye (played by Kim Ha-kyung) is the last daughter. In her early twenties she received recognition for her performing talent, but has been stuck in a rut career wise ever since then. Woo-jin (played by Ki Tae-young) is the CEO of a publishing company with whom she keeps getting intertwined. Jae-beom (played by Nam Tae-boo) is her ex-boyfriend.
