“The Glory” Season 2 Dominates Netflix’s Charts

South Korean drama The Glory has had a successful run and propels actress Song Hye Go to new heights. After topping Netflix global list for three consecutive weeks with a cumulative viewing time of nearly 300 million hours, fans couldn’t get enough of the drama and eyeing for any hints of a sequel.

[Spoilers Ahead]

In the finale, Moon Dong Eun (Song Hye Go) finally gets her revenge with the help of plastic surgeon Joo Yeo Jeong (Lee Do Hyun). As the two confess their love for each other, they accept new jobs at the prison for the purpose of carrying out their next revenge plans.

The finale was well received, and fans commended screenwriter Kim Eun Sook for delivering a non-stereotypical ending. In response, Kim Eun Sook shared that the ending was deliberately planned. Kim Eun Sook explained that while the two protagonists fulfilled their revenge, they also have blood on their hands and the prison is only a fitting place for the couple.

Kim Eun Sook also recognized that there is a lot of interest for a sequel and revealed that she had discussed a sequel with the cast. To fans’ delight, Kim Eun Sook shared that actor Kim Gun Woo, who played one of the bullies, had asked to reprise his character in any capacity and Kim Eun Sook could not imagine a third season without including the actor.

With the release of the finale, Kim Eun Sook also wrote a letter of encouragement to victims of bullying. Penning the letter as if writing to Moon Dong Eun, Kim Eun Sook wrote, “Dear Don Eun, you are in pain, you cried many times and you wanted to die many times. Still, you stumbled to this point. Thank you very much. It’s difficult but you know that all your travelled roads have now become someone’s map. I hope you will be set free this spring.”

  1. Is Glory more popular the Reborn based on viewing rating? Not pitting the stars against each other, just wondering which is better. I enjoyed Reborn but have not started on Glory.

    1. Couldn’t get into Reborn but I only watched 1 episode. Loved The Glory tho

      1. I watched eps 1, stopped for afew weeks, it was not gripping enough for me to continue…
        But I decided to continue whilst on a very long haul flight. I have 2 dramas downloaded on my hard drive for the long, long, long, long, long, long flight. I dislike flight entertainment systems…so I bring my laptop instead. I finished Reborn on flight. It really go better as I went on watching… So I am glad I watched.
        I might do the same for Glory…

      2. I heard good things about Reborn but not sure how many episodes to give it to gauge if I’d like the rest. My flights often have a lot of movies/TV shows I haven’t seen so I’m not too fussed but I do like the idea of downloading shows before flying

  2. Didn’t really enjoy the show but the acting is good. SWG is very beautiful that was why I watched half but the story isn’t my cup of tea.
