The hellbent on revenge Netflix thriller The Glory Part 2 just released a riviting trailer that has us reeling in our seats! The story of a physically and mentally abused high school girl who vows revenge on her bullies 20 years later is just getting started! The Part 2 trailer explains why things are just starting to heat up! Take a look!
Part 1 of The Glory shares the story of Moon Dong Eun (Song Hye Kyo), a traumatized high school student, who has been physically and mentally tormented by a group of classmates headed by the popular and beautiful Park Yeon Jin (Lim Ji Yeon). It shows the hardships and tribulations Dong Eun had to endure because of the result of her being bullied and dropping out of high school. She had to study hard to earn her GED while working part-time jobs to make ends meet. Meanwhile, her bully classmates are having fun in college and having the time of their lives.
Depicting several uncut bullying scenes in Part 1, Netflix has chosen to leave nothing to the imagination as the bullies decide to use a hair curling iron as the wepon of choice to inflict pain upon the helpless Dong Eun. Many Koreans have taken to the internet cafes to express their opinions on why Netflix decided to show such heart breaking imagery.
A story by Korean JoongAng Daily wrote that the scene depicted similarities between a real case that happened in Cheongju back in 2006. One post on an internet forum stated that there were many similarites between The Glory school uniforms and the uniforms worn by the actual school.
The incident in Cheongju took place in a middle school where a young girl was assaulted by her classmates with hair irons, hair pins, and books for a month.
Part 2 continues to be just as, if not, more intense as Moon Dong Eun exacts her revenge by getting closer to her tormentors; using what she has learned about them against themselves. She has also recruited some pretty important people to help her, including Joo Yeo Jeong (Lee Do Hyun) a plastic surgeon, and her evil arch nemesis Park Yeon Jin's husband, Ha Do Yeong.
Part 2 of The Glory is scheduled to be released in March 2023! Meanwhile, watch Part 1 again to make sure you haven't missed anything!
What do you think about Netflix not censoring any of the bullying scenes? Are they right in doing so? If the scenes were censored, would it not give the audience enough emotional ammunition and satisfaction once Dong Eun gets her revenge? Let us know what you think!
