The Glory Pt.2:
Episode 9 begins where Episode 8 ended- Park Yeon Jin and Ha Do Yeong confront each other at Moon Dong Eun’s apartment. The new part goes back into the dark story of revenge with one new addition- So Hee. The story focuses back on So Hee and Dong Eun taking revenge for her. The four friends- Park Yeon Jin, Choi Hye Jeong, Jeon Jae Joon and Lee Sa Ra are confronted over Son Myeong Oh’s missing case which turns into a drug case, sending Lee Sa Ra into a spin.
Moon Dong Eun vs Park Yeon Jin:
Episode 9 focuses on Park Yeon Jin finally understanding how much trouble she is in over Moon Dong Eun and So Hee. One sees that the true culprit for So Hee’s death was Park Yeon Jin and while the rest of her ‘friends’ had taken her side earlier, they were now out for their own goals and considered putting the blame where it belonged- on Yeon Jin.
Joo Yeo Jeong and Ha Do Young:
Lee Do Hyun as Joo Yeo Jeong was a relief to the dark storyline. While he also had his struggles, he played an important role in Moon Dong Eun’s life as the light in her dark-as-night world. Their back and forths bring a smile to the viewers’ face. On the other hand, Ha Do Young seems like the only rich person to have some ‘empathy’ towards Moon Dong Eun and the whole situation but the part that irked him the most was when he came to know that Ha Ye Sol is biologically not his but rather Jae Joon’s.
The first episode in Part 2 was just a taste of the twisted and menacing story that will take place in the rest of the episodes, keeping us ready to binge the entire drama.
Part 1 of ‘The Glory’, which was released on December 30 last year, is the story of Mun Dong Eun (Song Hye Kyo), who was severely bullied by Park Yeon Jin (Im Ji Yeon) during her school days, and takes her whole life to exact revenge.In Part 1, after Dong Eun dropped out of school, she became a teacher and took over as the homeroom teacher for Yeon Jin’s daughter Ha Ye Sol (Oh Ji Yul). Dong Eun prepared her revenge little by little in part 1. The drama became popular, becoming the #1 non-English TV series on Netflix. It also raised awareness about school violence in Korea and abroad.
