Kim Eun Sook’s new drama, starring Song Hye Kyo, will be a desperate revenge drama.
On Jan 8, the production company Hwa & Dam Pictures shared, “Kim Eun Sook’s new drama is titled ‘The Glory.'”
The Glory tells a wicked yet sad story of a woman who plotted her revenge for a long time. When she was a high school girl, she dreamed of becoming an architect, but she had to drop out of school when she became the target of brutal school violence. Since then, she waited until the bully got married, had kids, and that child entered elementary school. After years of plotting, she begins her thorough and desperate revenge on the perpetrators and bystanders after being appointed as the child’s homeroom teacher.
The drama will be produced as a multi-season series, and the first part will be released as an 8-part drama. The network and the timing are still unconfirmed. However, as the production crew and main actors have been confirmed, the filming will officially begin in the second half of this year.
Hwa & Dam Pictures raised the expectations by adding, “The Glory will become a new kind of revenge drama with screenwriter Kim Eun Sook’s captivating storyline, Song Hye Kyo’s perfect acting transformation and director Ahn Gil Ho’s sensuous directing.”
