For the past few days, my husband and I had K-drama marathon from Astro VOD. I painstakingly scrolled through the huge collections to find one seemingly interesting drama to watch. And landed at Tunnel – the story of a detective trying to catch a serial killer. It is not a typical lovey-dovey Korean drama, the romance part is at a very minimum level, so we both got hooked.
I won’t be reviewing about this drama, you better watch it yourself, but there is something that caught me: how important a mother is. It isn’t the first story where I see Korean portraying the importance of a mother’s role to a child’s psychology. In this drama it showed (spoiler alert!) both serial killers were not treated well by their mothers when they were young. On the other hand, I have yet to see a story where the antagonist went to the dark side because of a bad relationship with his/her father.
I don’t know if it is in our culture; that a mother is majorly responsible of how a child turn out; or in reality it is really so. When Winter was not yet born, my husband and I made sure we both play an equally important role in Heartbeat’s life. Playtime with daddy. Sleeptime with mummy. But once Winter arrives, Heartbeat does spend more time with daddy because Winter is such a mummy boy, he cannot last 2 minutes with daddy if mummy is in the same room.
Anyway, I would like to know what do you think. Did your mother really affect your growing up phase more than your father?
