However, Lee Do Hyun’s role remains a mystery since it is not stated whether he will be the love interest of Song Hye Kyo’s character.

Song Hye Kyo, who previously worked together with “The Glory” writer Kim Eun Sook on the hit drama “Descendants of the Sun, ” will be starring as the vengeful protagonist Moon Dong Eun, while Lee Do Hyun will be playing the complicated male lead Joo Yeo Jeong.
The new character posters feature Song Hye Kyo, Lee Do Hyun, Yeom Hye Ran, Lim Ji Yeon, Park Sung Hoon, Kim Hieora, Cha Joo Young, Kim Gun Woo, and Jung Sung Il. In the background of each poster is the devil’s flower morning glory, which symbolizes each character’s desire to protest with god. While some characters have endured dark, polar nights, others have lived their entire lives in riot.
Song Hye Kyo, Lee Do Hyun, and Yeom Hye Ran play victims Moon Dong Eun, Joo Yeo Jeong, and Kang Hyeon Nam respectively, and their expressions all appear cold yet fiery. The phrase on Moon Dong Eun’s poster reads, “For you who will fall, for me who will be ruined, ” which is a line she uses in a letter to her bully Park Yeon Jin (Lim Ji Yeon).

Helping Dong Eun to successfully get her revenge are Joo Yeo Jeong and Kang Hyeon Nam. Joo Yeo Jeong’s poster states, “I’ll be your executioner. Among them, who do you want me to kill first?” Kang Hyeon Nam earnestly tells Moon Dong Eun, “I want to be on your side. Please kill them.”
The remaining posters capture the coldhearted nature of bullies and abusers, who have no remorse for their sins. Lim Ji Yeon plays Park Yeon Jin, who bullied Moon Dong Eun when they were students. On her poster it condescendingly states, “You’re not doing this to get something like a sincere apology, right?”
Park Sung Hoon portrays Jeon Jae Joon, who looks angry and displeased in his character poster. It’s captioned, “It’s too late to block, it’s not unavoidable, so does it end once everyone’s been harmed?” Kim Hieora takes on the role of Lee Sa Ra, who looks up with tearful eyes and states, “I’ve repented and been saved for everything I did to you.”

Lastly, there’s Jung Sung Il who takes on the role of Park Yeon Jin’s husband Ha Do Yeong. When faced with the reality of his wife’s history as a perpetrator of school violence, he falls into a deep dilemma. In his poster, he asks curiously, “Did you approach me on purpose?”

Watch a teaser here!In her protracted acting career, Song Hye-kyo has collaborated with the top stars in Korean entertainment, portraying a specific kind of allure, whether as a damsel in distress, a blind socialite, a dogged cardiothoracic surgeon, an elite fashion designer or now as a devious teacher out for vengeance! Her latest offering,
Song Hye Kyo Is All The Rage In ‘the Glory’
, is an intense revenge K-drama, in which Song’s performance adds a great deal of dynamism, making it difficult to take your gaze away from her. For the first time in a long time, we see her in a role that is a far cry from the characters we are accustomed to seeing her play.
Features Moon Dong-eun (Song), an elementary school homeroom teacher. In high school, Moon was routinely bullied and violently assaulted by Park Yeon-jin (Im Ji-yeon) and her gang. She drops out of school as a result, only to return years later with a fully fleshed-out plan of retribution against the bullies and the bystanders. Released just a couple of days before the start of the new year, the series struck me as a morbidly gorgeous narrative that had me on the edge of my seat thanks to the painstaking plotline, directing, and stellar performances, with Song delivering her best.
Many of you may feel that Song especially excels in the romantic genre. She best fits the style because of the way she exudes feminine beauty in her face, body language, speech and temperament. But it’s essential to recognize how intricately Song has managed to embodyMoon’s characterin all of its distinctiveness while steadfastly retaining her own individuality. She emanates the rage that has built up in her heart over time as part of persistent abuse that has surpassed emotional frontiers, making her appear to be a femme fatale in all her glory.
Song Hye Kyo To Star In ‘the Glory,’ K Drama About Revenge And Bullying
The scenes of Moon being bullied mercilessly are quite upsetting, and her being failed by those who ought to have been by her side touches a nerve. In that sense,
Is truly a strong and emotive piece of work. The actress, seamlessly gliding into her skin, injects life into the victim. I believe Song must have been deeply touched while enacting the horrors that Moon encounters, since exerting that sort of effort both mentally and emotionally is an experience that really resonates with you.
, a character like Song’s works the best for me. The big draw is how authentic she appears to be in her vengeful spirit. She never tries to be realistic; instead, she has an unmatched capacity to elicit sympathy from the audience. And even though the plot takes a bit to get going, it’s worth it when Moon finally pushes things to the point where justice must be served. I’m excited for season two to see how she finally gets it.
