Watch: Uhm Ji Won Enters The World Of Motherhood In Comedic “Birthcare Center” Teaser
tvN has given a new look at the upcoming drama “Birthcare Center”!
“Birthcare Center” is an eight-part noir series following Oh Hyun Jin (Uhm Ji Won) as she adapts to life as a new mom. Although she is the youngest executive at her company, she is the oldest mom at the postpartum care center where she’s staying. She went through a rough time giving birth and must now grow into her new role as a mom while interacting with the fellow mothers at the center. During her stay there, she meets Jo Eun Jung (Park Ha Sun), another mother at the center who is known as the “queen bee.”
In the highlight video, Oh Hyun Jin and her husband Kim Do Woon (Yoon Park) enter the grand postpartum care center, which is described as “a heaven for mothers and their newborn children.” Although everything looks luxurious at first glance, the video soon reveals that a vicious class system exists within the world of postpartum care. Introducing a long train that the new mothers ride, a character explains, “The moms who are in the first car have all the power. They’re the queens of motherhood.”
Jo Eun Jung smiles with confidence as the clip describes her accomplishments as a mother. She’s said to have finished nursing her children within the first two years, given birth to twins naturally, and has been a single parent for six years. Oh Hyun Jin then asks, “What about the end of the train?” These moms are described as people no one cares about, and they don’t receive help from anyone. Dejected, Oh Hyun Jin says, “Hey, that’s me.”
The video goes on to show all the trouble the mothers go through to ensure that their newborns are healthy, and the clip ends with Oh Hyun Jin dancing as the voiceover says, “A glorious past only makes the woman who has become a mother look shabby.”

“Birthcare Center” premieres on November 2 at 9 p.m. KST and will be available on Viki.
