A Quick Recap on the First Part of ‘The Glory’
Since its release last December, fans have been raving about the remarkable performance of Song Hye-kyo as Dong-eun. The hit revenge saga quickly captured the interest of the viewers in just a few minutes, as the plot seemed to continuously thicken with every episode.
The Glory exemplary narrates the story of Dong-eun, a woman whose soul has been tremendously devastated because of the abuse of power and violence caused by her classmates in high school. Taking all the pain to heart, she meticulously plots a vengeance plan for all the people who ruined her childhood.
Now, if you think this is your ordinary revenge-against-the-bully type of story, then you’re up for many surprises. With high-caliber creators weaving the story, you’ll always be left in awe as the story unfolds. The Glory is built on the experience of the dazzling trinity of K-drama hitmakers: writer Kim Eun-sook (The Lonely and Great God, Descendants of the Sun and Mr. Sunshine), director An Gil-ho (Stranger, Memories of Alhambra, Record of Youth), and, of course, the casts of Song Hye-kyo, Lee Do-hyun, Lim Ji-yeon, Yeom Hye-ran, Park Sung-hoon, and Jung Sung-ill.
During the press conference made last December, writer Kim Eun-sook shared, “I am a parent myself, and my daughter is going to be sophomore in high school next year. So, school violence is a topic that I’m not new to. And it’s something I want to delve into. We were talking about the topic of school violence, and my concern is that my daughter, because of my fame, would be bullied in school.”
True enough, the writer was able to convincingly convey the heart of the story—along with the repercussions that could happen with such an act in the future. Within the five weeks since its release, The Glory dominated Netflix’s Global Top 10 TV (Non-English) and continues to rise to fame with several parodies and memes going viral on social media.
Fans are already counting down the days until March 10, when The Glory Part 2 will be released. As the story continues, the viewers are having a hard time figuring out whether Dong-eun will be successful with her revenge and finally put a stop to her misery or whether she falls prey to the hands of her aggressors once again.Are you as thirsty to see the nerve-wracking ending of The Glory Part 2?
