“The Glory” writer Kim Eun Sook explained why Ha Do Young did not leave Park Yeon Jin and his feelings for Moon Dong Eun
Kim Eun Sook directly talked about the complicated feelings of “The Glory” character Ha Do Young.
On March 26th, Netflix Korea uploaded a commentary video for “The Glory” Part 2 on its official Youtube channel. Actors Jung Sung Il, Kim Hieora, Cha Joo Young, Kim Gun Woo, Park Sung Hoon, writer Kim Eun Sook, and director Ahn Gil Ho appeared in the video and shared various stories about their work.
In particular, Kim Eun Sook drew attention when she mentioned the feelings of Ha Do Young (Jung Sung Il), which gained divided reactions among netizens. Since “The Glory” was released, viewers have raised discussions on the real reason why Ha Do Young did not abandon Park Yeon Jin (Lim Ji Yeon).
When asked “How about Do Young’s feelings for Dong Eun?”, Kim Eun Sook said, “He says that he doesn’t know although he hates saying that. I think that line conveys his feelings pretty well.”
In the drama, there is a scene where Ha Do Young meets Moon Dong Eun (Song Hye Kyo) and said, “I hate to say I don’t know, but I don’t know yet. I just realized that I’ll never leave her. So let’s meet again”.
Regarding the scene, Kim Eun Sook explained, “He’s only useful to Dong Eun if he’s still Yeon Jin’s husband. If he leaves Yeon Jin, he has no reason to meet Dong Eun. He wasn’t sure how he felt about her back then. I think it’s when he was having triangle gimbap that he realized that he liked her. He’s nice enough to leave quietly but he’s a jerk who pushed Jae Joon”.
In response to Kim Eun Sook’s explanation, netizens commented, “I thought the same thing”, “That’s exactly what I think”, “That’s why he said ‘Let’s meet again’”, “Now I understand it”, “I never thought it would be like that”, etc.
