On January 6th, a video titled ‘Behind the scenes commentary by writer Kim Eun Sook, director Ahn Gil Ho, and actors’ was released on Netflix Korea’s official account.
“The Glory” director Ahn Gil Ho, writer Kim Eun Sook, actors Song Hye Kyo, Lim Ji Yeon, Lee Do Hyun, and Yum Hye Ran had a conversation.
In the video, Do Hyun revealed his concerns while filming “The Glory”.
Lee Do Hyun said, “At first, I asked the director, ‘Director, I’m filming The Glory, right?’ It’s because the previous scenes were all about hitting, swearing, and having an affair, and the scene with Song Hye Kyo is soft, isn’t it? “I felt like I was the only one filming a melodrama.”
“I asked a lot of questions, ‘Is it right to go in this direction?’ (The director) said, “It’s good to be so pretty and lovely”, but he felt like he wanted something to feel sorry for me,” and added, “I tried to catch those points because he said he wanted me to feel sorry for him.”
In response, writer Kim Eun Sook said, “If the real director didn’t stop me, the ending of the fourth part would be a kiss scene. It’s a national rule,” she said, drawing laughter. She added, “I think that really resulted in one of the coolest couples I’ve ever written.”
“The Glory” is a work that depicts the story of a woman whose soul was shattered by violence in her childhood and the desperate revenge she has prepared meticulously throughout her life and those who fall into the vortex.
