In every K-drama, it’s impossible not to have at least one mom as a character. If you’ve made your rounds in the K-drama world, you’ll notice that many of the popular shows feature one particular actress as the lead’s mother—none other than Kim Mi Kyung! The 56-year-old actress has played all sorts of roles through the years, but many will surely recognize her endearing face as that mom in that K-drama. 

If you think there’s nothing special about playing a mom in every existing drama, you’ll be glad to know Kim Mi Kyung has taken on all sorts of motherly roles—from a kind and mute mother to one that had a life-altering love affair.

The Heirs (2013)

In The Heirs, Kim Mi Kyung plays Park Hui Nam—the mother of Park Shin Hye’s character—a mute housekeeper of a rich family (aka the family of chaebol heir Kim Tan, played by Lee Min Ho). While she may not be able to speak up for her daughter, viewers will find it endearing to see her stand up for her daughter in other ways.

20th Century Boy and Girl (2017)

Also called Children of the 20th Century, this drama sees Kim Mi Kyung as the mother of a thirty-something singer-actress trying to juggle career, love, and friendship. 

Her Private Life (2019)

Kim Mi Kyung reunites with Park Min Young, this time as her on-screen, knitting-fanatic mom. In the drama, Kim Mi Kyung’s character is adamantly against the fangirling tendency of Park Min Young’s character. Little do they know that the mother and daughter have a lot in common that they’d like to believe.

Hi Bye, Mama! (2020) 

Hi Bye, Mama! is a drama that illustrates the many faces of motherhood. Kim Mi Kyung plays the mother of lead character Yu Ri (who dies after giving birth and becomes a ghost).
