If you want to look at the perfect example of ‘you reap what you sow’ then Netflix’s ‘The Glory‘ is what you need to be bingeing!
Hands down, the show lives up to its hype and if you have not yet watched it, you are missing out on some glorious content! Not that we promote the idea of taking revenge on anyone, but the way Dong-eun Moon (Song Hye-kyo) planned her revenge like a game of chess will win you over.
The Glory – Story Throwback
The story starts with a girl who starts getting harassed and bullied by a group of students, mainly by Park Yeon-jin (Lim Ji-yeon) who we are sure has already sold her soul to the devil as you can tell by her cold black eyes.
Yeon-jin not only pushes Dong-eun around but also tortures her physically by scarring her body with burns using a hair curler. The bullies also beat her up, burn her with cigarette buds, and even sexually harass her throughout.
Despite complaining multiple times, Dong-eun continues to be the punching bag until she has enough and drops out of school. But, instead of curling up and crying, she decided that one day she will carry out her revenge.
After years of hard labour work, countless hours of tuition and schooling, she manages to work her way to become Yeon-jin’s daughter’s teacher.
Now happily married and a mother of one Yeon-jin starts to find herself in a tough position after she learns that Ms Moon is the new teacher.
However, The Glory has many interesting moments in between which include how Dong-eun approaches her bullies and their loved ones and slowly reveals their reality in front of them, and happens to successfully turn all of them against one another.
The Glory – Precious Learnings
There were several moments in the K-drama that was just ‘perfect’, one of those elements includes how each and every character got what they deserved. Every bully met with their own consequences.
The other perfect element was how Dong-eun was not the only character we saw suffering, her friend slash helper slash boyfriend is also living in his own hell, so now it’s her turn to help him as he did her. This shows how everyone is dealing with their own baggage and how they can come together to help one another.
The glory highlights that every scar tells a story, while some are nasty, some are extremely beautiful and there should be no shame in accepting them.
Last but not the least, one of our favourites part about the script is that from the beginning to the end, Dong-eun had the puppets dancing to her tune.
