Based on the film Mother directed by Korean director Bong Joon-ho, the study critically analyzes the extreme and paranoid characteristics of the leading role Hye-ja, who is willing to commit crimes to save her mentally handicapped son from prison; this has sparked an intense discussion and public examination of the social underclass suffering from the hardships of life. Under the backdrop of the lack of patriarchal patriarchy in Korea, the study also aims to reflect the perverse symbiotic relationship between the mother, Hye-ja, and her son, Do-joon.
