“Before part 1 was released, I was full of worries,” the actress shared on this day. “All I could see was what I lacked in, so when I received all the praises after the show got released, I couldn’t even think straight. It’s been a while since my drama became a hit.” She went on, “I was thrilled. It was my first revenge/thriller genre, so everything was difficult and tough. So every scene, I was worried if I’d done it right.”
When asked about how she’s been spending her time before the release of part 2, Song Hye Kyo replied, “At first, I was the same as the viewers. I wanted it to come out quickly, but as the wait got longer, I got scared that people might forget about (The Glory).” Then she raised expectations, commenting, “I’m thinking, ‘Won’t all the traps Dong Eun set up in part 1 explode (in part 2)?’ That’ll be a lot of fun.”
For Song Hye Kyo, the most memorable moment on the set was her scar makeup which took about 4 to 5 hours. She then mentioned the scene where she showed her body to Lee Do Hyun, “I went on a diet for that scene. I only ate bananas for three days, and the day before, I didn’t even drink water. After putting on makeup in that state, I thought I just might die before the filming even started. My body was exhausted, and I think that perfected the scene.”
Lastly, she thanked the fans, saying, “It was a great honor to be able to sympathize with everyone, to be in pain together, and to be able to share these feelings.” She continued, “I’m grateful and delighted that I was given the role of Moon Dong Eun. Portraying her was tough and excruciating, but it was also meaningful in that I got to show that even someone like Moon Dong Eun can do something and have hopes.”
Meanwhile, The Glory Part 2 will be released on the 10th on Netflix.
