In the video, Yang Tae Bin said, “The scenes in the drama are quite similar to the real-life situation. Still, there are several differences”.

In Netflix’s original series “The Glory”, Park Yeon Jin (Lim Ji Yeon) argued with a junior weathercaster, saying “This broadcasting station pays me only 2.2 million won a month, but my husband spends 220 million won for this place”.

Regarding this, Yang Tae Bin said, “Considering every company, every piece of news, every annual leave and every person on a case-by-case basis, you will still earn more than this weathercaster”, adding, “The number mentioned in the drama is actually the salary I earned when I was a college student. Our company SBS pays a lot to weathercasters.”

She explained, “I can’t tell the specific number but I’m earning more than twice the salary in ‘The Glory’. It also depends on my individual jobs since I’m a freelancer and can work outside the broadcasting station”.

Lastly, Yang Tae Bin said, “Drama is just a drama. I hope viewers don’t have a bad impression of weathercasters.”
