The stunning conclusion

Centred around Moon Dong-Eun, portrayed by the talented Song Hye-Kyo … The series delves into the psyche of a former high school bullying victim hell-bent on retribution. The first part meticulously outlines Dong-Eun’s calculated schemes to bring her tormentors to justice. Her relentless pursuit, evoking shades of John Wick, sees her confronting each bully with a cunning plan for their comeuppance.

The sequel sees Dong-Eun joined by Joo Yeo-Jung (Lee Do-Hyun) and Hyun-Nam (Yeon Hye-Ran) as she continues her quest for justice. The narrative also peels back layers on Yeo-Jung’s character, adding a new dimension of complexity and suspense to the storyline.

While the first instalment focused on Dong-Eun’s harrowing experiences, The Glory Part 2 adopted a more nuanced approach, spotlighting another victim of bullying. The cast’s stellar performances amplify the emotional stakes, leaving audiences deeply moved by the unfolding drama.

An exceptional cast

The series shines not just through its compelling narrative but also through its exceptional ensemble cast. Each actor brings a unique depth to their roles, making the characters both relatable and memorable. Song Hye-Kyo’s portrayal of Dong-Eun is particularly noteworthy, adding intricate layers to an already complex character. Lim Ji-Yeon’s role as the chief bully, Yeon-Jin, is equally unforgettable and loathsome.
