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.
It comes from writer Kim Eun Sook, who wrote Secret Garden, The Heirs, Descendants of the Sun, and Goblin. And this time, she chose a revenge story instead of a love story.
From early on, Song Hye Kyo was cast to play the female lead. She had joined the project even before she started filming Now, We Are Breaking Up, now broadcasting on SBS. In the meantime, Lee Do Hyun was confirmed as the male lead.
Hwa & Dam Pictures, The Glory‘s production company, already confirmed that they’d finish filming before the premiere for better quality. After thorough preparation, the filming will officially begin in January next year. Song Hye Kyo, who had finished shooting for Now, We Are Breaking Up, will get a rest until The Glory begins its journey. cLee Do Hyun will join the filming as soon as he finishes tvN’s Melancholia.
