Honestly, when I read the synopsis of a mother that goes to high school, I thought this was going to be ridiculous and the story would be a comedy. I was absolutely wrong. Angry Mom is intense and takes a look at the darker side of human kind. It brings to light truths of school bullying and corruption under the exaggeration of a drama. The writer did a great job intertwining the lives of the characters and their individual stories while making each character necessary and building excellent character development. One angry mother starts a sequence of events to shine a light on the problems that every one else tries to ignore and/or cover up until she has rallied the help of teachers and other mothers alike. The best part is that the lead female character is strong while being emotional and conflicted on how to help her child. I absolutely love strong female leads. Kim Hee Sun is perfect as loving and protective mom Jo Kang Ja as well as teenage friend Jo Bang Wool. I can't say enough about her acting. All of the actors were great from the young to the veteran actors. Regardless of Ji Soo's good looks, that boy can act. His emotional versatility as Go Bok Dong will take him a long way in the future. I look forward to seeing more of him. Kim Tae Hoon makes it easy and strangely sad to hate Do Jeong Woo. The person I felt the most conflict for was Kim Hee Won as Ahn Dong Chil. I wasn't sure what to think of him until the very end. I'm so glad the writer clears every thing up with him. His character was the link that held the story together. Besides the female lead, my favorite character is Go Su Hee as the quirky and totally lovable and ultimate best friend, Han Gong Joo. I adore her!!! I think the weak link is surprisingly Ji Hyun Woo as Park Noh Ah although I will say as the drama went on he got better. It may have been his character being that he seemed naive and weak that became stronger while remaining nice. The music is really good. I will probably rewatch this at some point. I recommend this drama to everyone. It is really well written and acted,
