Meaning Behind Title

Writer Kim Eun Sook revealed the meaning of the show’s title at its recently held press conference. She shared, “I read a lot of posts written by the victims of violence while thinking of the show’s title. All they wanted was a sincere apology from the perpetrators. I had to think about what a sincere apology could do and why it is so important as I have never been in that place,” she stated.

“Then I realized that it’s not about achieving something. It’s about recouping what has been lost, like one’s dignity, honor and glory. An apology makes things even, and when things get even, that’s when one can move on,” she added

Things to Look for in Season 2

1. Wealthy and powerful men Ha Do Young and Jeon Jae Joon will clash over things that are precious to them.
2. Will the perpetrators be able to keep their secrets from others? The truth behind the death of another school bullying victim Yoon So Hee (played by Lee So Yi) remains to be revealed.
3. Dong Eun meticulously plots her revenge in Season 1, and her revenge has just begun. Will she be able to deliver it successfully to the end?
