On January 18, a press conference was held inside Seoul's Imperial Palace for tvN's 'Mother'. Lee Bo Young commented, "I played the role of a mother in 'God's Gift', and I selected the particular project because it had an interesting plot, not necessarily because I was drawn to the maternal aspect of the story."
She continued, "As for 'Mother' I chose to act in it after I had my child. And during that 1-year span, I read numerous reports of child abuse, which caught my attention. After hearing about such cases or news about a child being neglected, I decided to work on this project."
"And I thought people should become more aware of such societal issues. Ultimately, I didn't decide on this drama for the viewer's ratings but because I felt responsible as a mother of a child myself," said Lee Bo Young boldly. With that, the actress shed tears, suddenly moved by her own emotions and passion.
The first episode of 'Mother' will be premiering on January 24.
