Korean TV show features “little mom”

Park Mi-so, ‘Beautiful little mom’ pregnant at 16, gave birth at 17, “thought about adoption, but through a mother’s instinctive love…”

Beautiful 18 year old little mom “Park Mi-so,” who will appear on SBSE!TV’s show “Splat House,” (a women’s talk show) has caught the eye of netizens. (A “little mom” is a young unwed mother and Koreans say it in Konglish as “리틀맘.”)

Park Mi-so was pregnant at 16, gave birth at 17, and is now raising her 11-month-old son.

Park Mi-so was not amicable in her junior high years, and after she ran away from home with friends, she was shocked to find out that she was actually 7 months pregnant.

Before the day of birth, her parents were shocked to find out the truth. After the birth, Mi-so thought about sending the baby for adoption, but her heart was broken so she couldn’t do it.

The story of little mom Park Mi-so will air March 25 at 12:00. You can watch it through the internet at http://tv.sbs.co.kr/house/

Meanwhile, netizens who heard about the storyline reacted by saying things such as “It’s good to see the image of strong living,” etc.

Note: It seems that Koreans watch a ton of TV and that TV programs are very important for helping to both shape and reflect the culture. I hope this program helps to erase some prejudice against unwed moms. Translation by me.
