2022 was another jam-packed year of stellar K-dramas from Netflix, with two of the biggest such releases from the streaming giant including All Of Us Are Dead and Extraordinary Attorney Woo. Now that 2023 is underway, meanwhile, Netflix is wasting no time in keeping that same trend going, with one of its newest such releases — the 8-episode drama The Glory — already a Top 10 Netflix series in the US.
Netflix K-drama The Glory
to the genre, by the way, has some impressive qualities to make it worth checking out for almost any K-drama fan. For example, its screenwriter is Kim Eun-sook, whose credits include Descendants of the Sun and Guardian: The Lonely and Great God.
The Glory is also a reunion of sorts between Descendents of the Sun actress Song Hye-kyo and the writer of that earlier K-drama classic. In this new tale, a woman lives for absolute revenge against the school bullies who made her childhood miserable. Per Netflix:
Song Hye-kyo, one of Korea’s top female leads, plays Moon Dong-eun, who is seeking revenge on the bullies who destroyed her childhood. Taking on a very different character from her previous outings in Now, We Are Breaking Up, and , Song portrays a rage-filled woman keen to inflict the ultimate comeuppance on those who tormented her — as well as those who didn’t lift a finger to help.
While Moon Dong-eun carefully plots her revenge, though, she’s thrown a curveball when she becomes the homeroom teacher to the child of one of her bullies from school.
