The Glory season 1 finale demonstrated that some secrets should be revealed even if they have been kept too long. The perpetrator Yeon Jin stands in front of Dong Eun’s presented proof of their crimes after part 1, and her spouse Do Yeong enters. The discovery that another victim Sohee’s body is gone from the mortuary by Dong Eun’s future “partner in crime,” Yeo Jeong, as well as the concluding scene, shocked viewers more.

If Sohee’s body is missing, it could indicate that Dong Eun has played Myeong or that Yeon Jin has already used her influence to make the body disappear since Myeong intended to use Yeon Jin’s death as leverage in a blackmail scheme.

They also selected the company of those who could assist them in achieving their goals because they were either wealthy or desired to be rich folks.

The Glory Season 1 Review

Song Hye Kyo’s performance in this episode is impressive; it is better than her work on her previous endeavor, Now We Are Breaking Up. I’m hoping that this will continue for the duration of the program. The bullying moments in K-dramas are the worst of all time, and this program takes it a step further.

Dong-desire eun’s for vengeance is understandable, but I don’t think she should involve Yeon-daughter jin’s in this. The fact that the adults were neglecting Dong-struggle eun’s for their selfish motives was likewise tragic and highly irritating. The instructor who hit her had better prepare for what Dong-eun had planned for him.

This program may be upsetting to people who have experienced bullying. Before beginning, ensure your mind is ready because this will be a theatrical experience.

When is The Glory Season 2 Airing?

Season 2 of The Glory will be available on Netflix in March 2023, so fans of season 1 won’t have to wait too long. Watch this space for additional drama developments.

What Can We Expect in the Glory Part Two?

The second installment of the series will premiere in March 2023. The narrative in this instance ends abruptly. After Do-Yeong discovers Yeon-secrets, Jin’s the two of them cross paths. On the other hand, Jae-Jun wants a place in the lives of Yeon-Jin and his biological daughter. Now that Hye-Jeong has completed her first task, Dong-Eun has chosen her as her next group ally.

Reporting Myeong-O missing to the police. We may anticipate that Dong-route Eun’s retribution will become much more difficult in part two. Of course, she now stands by the side of her executioner. Yeo-Jeong, her well-wisher and current doctor, is the person whom Dong-Eun confides.

It would be interesting to see what part Yeo-Jeong plays, especially given the background storyline of his father’s murder and the serial killer who wrote a letter to him from prison. Yeo-assistance Jeong’s would likely be very helpful for Dong-quest, Eun’s as she has only been able to exact revenge on her former homeroom teacher and Myeong-o thus far (indirectly).
