“‘The Glory’ tells the story of a woman with a broken soul due to childhood violence, who dedicates her life to a meticulous web of vengeance to all the accomplices who brought her childhood nightmare,” Netflix shared in a recent press release.
Screenwriter Kim Eun-sook, who has previously worked on K-dramas such as “Descendants of the Sun,” “Goblin” and “Secret Garden,” said she wants the upcoming Netflix series “to be remembered as a grim drama, like a breathtaking sword dance.”
Director Ahn Gil-ho collaborated with Song to illustrate her character’s “clear sense of purpose in her vengeance” by “smoothing out the tone and speed of [her] narration lines.”
Song, best known for her roles in K-dramas such as “Descendants of the Sun” and “Full House,” stars as the series’ protagonist, Moon Dong-eun. She is joined by Lee Do-hyun of “Sweet Home” fame in addition to several other cast members, including Lim Ji-yeon, Yeom Hye-ran, Park Sung-hoon and Jung Sung-ill.
“The Glory” will be available for streaming on Dec. 30.
