Why would a woman return to her sleepy hometown after 18 years?
Yang Baek Hee (Kang Ye Won) was quite popular in her small hometown of Sumwol Island but left 18 years ago under a shroud of scandal when she became pregnant. In the intervening years, Baek Hee has married a doctor and become a polished, top salesperson for a home shopping network. When she moves back to Sumwol Island, Baek Hee brings her 18-year-old daughter, Shin Ok Hee (Jin Ji Hee).
The rebellious Ok Hee thinks her mother is the pinnacle of uncool. But she begins to see her mother in a new light as she learns about Baek Hee’s past on the island.
“Baek Hee Has Returned” is a 2016 four-episode South Korean drama series directed by Cha Young Hoon.
