About the title

The direct translation of the title '엄마 친구 아들' / '엄친아' (Umchina) would be <Mother's Friend's Son>, but it also has another meaning.

In Korea, 'Umchina' can also be used as a slang word. '엄마 친구 아들' or '엄친아' refers to a person who is perfect in everything: abilities, appearances, and backgrounds. It's usually used by a mother to motivate her son to do better by comparing him to an obscurely perfect character. (Source )
