Writer Kim Eun Sook, who wrote Netflix’s “The Glory,” is drawing admiration by revealing her message that ran through 16 episodes.
On Jan 6th, a video titled “Writer Kim Eun Sook, director Ahn Gil Ho, and the actors’ behind-the-scenes commentary | The Glory | Netflix” was posted on Netflix Korea’s official YouTube channel.
In the video, writer Kim Eun Sook revealed the message she wanted to convey to viewers through Moon Dong Eun (Song Hye Kyo) throughout 16 episodes of “The Glory.” It is reportedly what Kim wanted to say to all the Moon Dong Eun in the world.
Writer Kim Eun Sook talked about the scene when Park Yeon Jin (Lim Ji Yeon) came to the school where Moon Dong Eun works and threatened her at the beginning of the drama, saying, “The words that the victims hear a lot are ‘So you didn’t do anything wrong? There should be some kind of excuses anyways’,” he said, “I heard that the wound from hearing those words was the biggest.”
She added, “I wrote all 16 episodes while keeping in mind that I should strengthen the story that they (the victims) were not at fault through Dong Eun.”
In response, Song Hye Kyo said, “In the drama, I kept getting angry and sad because of the line ‘How hard did I make her suffer, what did I do to her thou? Was I that serious?'”
Netizens are pleased to hear this. They commented, “It’s the best work by Kim Eun Sook so far. The actors’ ability to interpret and express the characters seems to be limitless,” “I feel the power of the writer. the story recognizes that the victims are stronger than anyone else by showing themselves boldly moving forward with reality rather than just seeing them as weak beings,” “I’m a 28-year-old victim of school violence. I really wanted to thank the writer Kim Eun Sook, the production team, and the actors for writing this story,” “It’s really like a dream for such great people to tell such a story to me, who has a lot of memories of being shunned as a child…”
“The Glory” is a Netflix series about a woman whose soul was broken by school violence during her childhood, as she carefully prepared her whole life for a revenge plan and the story of those who fall into the vortex.
