Netflix Korea has unveiled nine character posters for the drama ‘The Glory.’ It features the drama leads including Song Hye Kyo, Lee Do Hyun, Lim Ji Yeon, Yeom Hye Ran, Park Sung Hoon, Kim Hieora, Cha Joo Young, Kim Gun Woo, and Jung Sung II. 

The Glory

'The Glory' is a moving and emotionally packed drama about a young woman who wants to be an architect but is forced to drop out of high school due to bullying. She stays strong in spite of the challenging circumstances, and eventually becomes a teacher. However, when the perpetrator of the bullying has a child and the child enters elementary school, the former victim transfers to become the child's homeroom teacher and begins a plan of revenge against the bullies and those who witnessed the abuse. This tragic story of revenge is written by the highly acclaimed writer Kim Eun Sook, the creator of popular dramas such as ‘The Heirs,’ ‘Descendants of the Sun,’ and ‘Guardian,’ and directed by the talented Ahn Gil Ho.

In the posters, morning glory, which is a symbol of rebellion against the gods, can be seen in the background. It represents the struggles and hardships that each character has endured.

In her pursuit of revenge, Dong Eun is joined by Joo Yeo Jung and Kang Hyun Nam, played by Lee Do Hyun and Yeom Hye Ran, respectively. Joo Yeo Jung's poster reads, 'I'll be your executioner. Among them, who do you want me to kill first?' Kang Hyun Nam, on the other hand, offers her unwavering support to Dong Eun, saying, 'I want to be on your side. Please kill them.' Together, these characters work to bring justice and take down those who have wronged them.

The remaining posters depict the cold and heartless behaviour of bullies and abusers.

Lim Ji Yeon portrays the character of Park Yeon Jin, a former classmate of Moon Dong Eun who bullied her in the past. On Park Yeon Jin's poster, there is a quote that reads, "You're not doing this to get something like a sincere apology, right?" The poster effectively captures the arrogant and dismissive attitude of Park Yeon Jin towards Moon Dong Eun, and her lack of remorse or understanding for the harm she caused.

Park Sung Hoon

Actor Park Sung Hoon portrays Jeon Jae Joon in the upcoming drama. In the character poster, he looks angry and unhappy. The caption reads, "It's too late to stop the harm, it can't be undone. Will the suffering end once everyone is affected?" This suggests that Jeon Jae Joon may be feeling regret or helplessness as he deals with a situation that has gotten out of control.

Park Yeon Jin's husband, Ha Do Young, is portrayed by Jung Sung Il.
