The Axis of Evil Mothers

with 4 comments

Mothers. Sometimes they are down right rotten. Sometimes it is for the young, sometimes it is for themselves. Here is a look at some notables evils from dramas I have watched, they earned this nomination into the axis of evil mothers.

The number one most evil mother I can think of from an Asian drama is Tae Mira from Stairway to Heaven. She starts off seemingly nice as she begins dating Jung-suh’s father, but once she is granted entrance into their household through the power of marriage, she begins to sweep everything away. Using her own daughter, Yuri, to try and win Jung-suh’s childhood soulmate Song-joo, Tae Mira does everything in her power to put blocks between Jung-suh and Song-joo. She is the worst of the evil mothers because she actually beats Jung-suh (the first time I saw it on camera I almost had to look away from how brutally she abused her). She even goes as far as to have her own son imprisoned to keep everything on her agenda. A snake in disguise, there is no mother I know of more evil than this one.

Greedy and power hungry, Baek Sung Hee presents the evil step-mother in the drama Brilliant Legacy. She has all the features of Tae Mira, but she has yet to move to physical torture, so she can’t quite pass her despite all the evil things she does. This woman is literally nuts and stays up all night thinking about her evil plots and what lie to tell next. Although she says the only person she cares for is her daughter, she is the one who corrupts Seung-Mi and helps her become a shadow of Sung Hee. Time will tell how much more evil she can get in the episodes to come.

The de-throned former queen-to-be, Lady Hwa-Yong, has lost all sense of humanity and only wants greed and control in the drama Goong. She uses her son, Yul, as the lever to help her reach back into the castle that she has been ousted from. She manipulates as many people as she can to fulfill her quest, using lovers like toys and the friendly grandmother of the family, while also using contacts in Multimedia/News to filter scandals and cause mayhem in the palace. As she assumes the position she feels she deserves she turns more and more members of the castle into her minions.

Domyoji Kaede is a feared successful woman in the Hana Yori Dango drama. She is not looking to use her kid for power, for she already has it, but she does like to control everything with an iron fist and has her own devious plots for Domyoji Tsukasa and Makino Tsukushi. Although not quite as evil as the other mothers, she still has a sense of eerie evil about her

  1. That lady who plays Tae Mira in Stairway tends to have evil roles, lol. She’s also an evil mom in Happiness, manipulative and controlling toward her 3 kids. I was actually hoping she was going to be cast as Goo Junpyo’s evil Mom in BOF, but in the end Lee Hyeyoung worked out well.

  3. In the case of Doumyoji Kaede, I prefer her Taiwanese version’s actress Zhen Xiu Zhen who really makes the character come to life and makes us scared every time she appears!
