Song Hye Kyo’s The Glory became the fifth most popular non-English series on Netflix two days after its release.

Flix Patrol reported on January 2nd that The Glory ranked fifth on the list of the most-watched Netflix series globally, according to the data accumulated until January 1st.

The show reached No.1 in ten different countries, including South Korea, Indonesia, Malaysia, the Philippines, Qatar, Saudi Arabia, Singapore, Taiwan, Thailand and Venezuela. It also took the No.6 spot in the US.

Forbes highly praised the series by writing an article titled A Scarred Song Hye Kyo Exacts K-Drama Revenge in ‘The Glory.’ 

The article said, “The first episode of The Glory is not easy to watch, but then bullying is brutal, leaving physical and psychological scars that may never heal.”

It also praised the actress for her outstanding performance and stated, “In her nuanced portrayal of Dong Eun, Song delivers a fractured fixated character, so hell-bent on destroying her tormenters that she derives little happiness from her own existence. Even if she achieves the justice she longs for, it will not erase the scars she acquired.” 

The Glory is the first-ever revenge series written by Kim Eun Sook, who previously worked on Mr. Sunshine and Descendants of the Sun. The show’s first part, episodes 1 to 8, was released on December 30th, 2022, and the latter part, episodes 9 to 16, will be released in March.

  • I think it’s one of the best script and a fantastic acting of all the actors and actresses .. and a touch of humor from the ahjuma gives a little respite from a very intense suspenseful drama ! Kudos to the writer who had a fantastic idea and with the work of all the people who made it into a drama to watch !
