The director of The Glory, Ahn Gil Ho, has admitted to allegations of school violence and issued a formal apology to the victim.


On March 12th, Ahn stated, “When I was studying in the Philippines in 1996, my emotions got the best of me, and I left someone with an indelible scar.”

Several days ago, allegations of school violence were raised online against Ahn. A victim claimed that in 1996, when Ahn was a high school senior and the victim was only in their second year of middle school, Ahn beat them for two hours because the victim had teased Ahn’s girlfriend.

Ahn has admitted to the allegations, stating, “When I heard that my girlfriend at the time was being made fun of at school because of me, I got riled up. I ask for forgiveness from the bottom of my heart to those who suffered because of me. If given the opportunity, I would like to express my apology either in person or through a call.”

Meanwhile, the second part of The Glory was released on March 10th. According to FlixPatrol, the show ranked second globally in the Netflix TV show category as of March 12th. It ranked first in 35 countries, including Japan and Hong Kong, second in Australia and France, and third in the United States and the United Kingdom.
