Upcoming South Korean revenge drama The Glory will see actress Song Hye Kyo reunite with Descendants of the Sun writer Kim Eun Sook. With filming underway, we hope to see the drama on Netflix before the end of 2022.

The Glory is an upcoming Netflix Original South Korean revenge-drama series, written by Kim Eun Sook, the writer of Descendants of the Sun. Directing the series is Ahn Gil Ho, who previously directed the dramas Happiness, Stranger, and Memories of the Alhambra.

When is The Glory Netflix release date?

A Netflix release date hasn’t been confirmed yet for The Glory. But, given the filming dates, we would expect to see the arrival of the k-drama before the end of 2022.

It has been reported by MyDramaList that the series will have a total of eight episodes. This leads us to believe the drama may arrive with all of the episodes at once, but we’re still waiting for Netflix to confirm this.


What is the plot of The Glory?

In her high-school days, Moon Dong Eun had dreams of becoming an architect. However, thanks to suffering from a brutally violent attack from her bullies, Moon Dong Eun is forced to drop out of school. Years later, the bully gets married, has a child, and attends the same elementary school where Moon Dong Eun now works as the homeroom teacher. After years of plotting, Moon Don Eun begins her plan of revenge against her former bullies and the students who stood by and let it happen.


Who are the cast members of The Glory?

Song Hye Kyo’s casting is a reunion for her and writer Kim Eun-sook, who previously worked on the massive South Korean hit series Descendants of the Sun.
