The Glory follows Moon Dong-eun (played by Song Hye-kyo), described as a broken woman after falling victim to violence as a child, which led to her being forced to drop out of school and give up on her dreams of becoming an engineer. Dong-eun dedicates her adulthood to plotting cold-blooded revenge against the perpetrators. Lee Do-hyun stars opposite Song as Joo Yeo-jung, vaguely described as a man with a hidden past.
Netflix shared the new visual for the forthcoming series earlier today (December 8), previewing the extreme lengths Dong-eun is willing to go to exact her revenge. She sets her plan in motion step by step, unraveling the string of individuals involved in Dong-eun’s mistreatment all those years ago, who she will subsequently target. The Glory is slated for a global premiere on the streaming service on December 30.
The K-drama was helmed by filmmaker Ahn Gil-ho, who previously worked on productions such as Memories of the Alhambra and Record of Youth, among others. Working alongside Ahn as a screenwriter is the acclaimed Kim Eun-sook, known for her work on hit K-dramas including Descendants of the Sun and Goblin.
