Actress Cha Joo Young from “The Glory” said that the cast was confirmed after checking into their past.

Cha Joo Young met with My Daily at a cafe in Sogyeok-dong, Jongno-gu, Seoul on the morning of March 15th for an interview. She played the role of stewardess Choi Hye Jung in Part 1 and Part 2 of the Netflix original series “The Glory” and performed passionately.

“The Glory” is a Netflix original series that depicts the story of a victim of school violence Moon Dong Eun (Song Hye Kyo) who risked her whole life to prepare for desperate revenge and the perpetrators who fall into the vortex. Earlier, on March 10th, Part 2 was released, and in just 3 days, it took first place in the Netflix TV show category and is gaining worldwide popularity.

On this day, Cha Joo Young said, “I think it’s a healthy response. I’m glad that “The Glory” has brought about social changes that should have been conveyed clearly through the drama.”

In response to the question, “Was there a verification process for school violence during the casting stage of ‘The Glory’?” she replied, “I don’t know exactly how the verification was conducted, but the production team did confirm the cast after making sure that there was no school violence issue.”

At the same time, Cha Joo Young emphasized, “I am a person who cannot stand injustice.”

She said, “There will be moments in life when everyone becomes a perpetrator and victim, not only in friendship but also in family and male and female relationships, regardless of whether they are intended or not.” She also said, “If you caused damage, I think it is necessary to ask for forgiveness, and if you do something wrong, you should be punished.”

“Hye Jung must have been scared at the beginning. It was the same as Dong Eun. However, the fear of being bullied by friends went the wrong way with vanity, bravado, and greed. It started by mistake and hardened,” she pointed out.

Regarding Hye Jung’s end, she said, “Because the only thing I can trust is external things, I see it as a cruel ending. Losing her weapon, she might have extreme thoughts, ‘I don’t want to live like this’, but that’s for a while. In the end, I think she finds a way to survive and somehow raise her voice. I hope that Hye Jng will live as a good influence, even if it’s just a little bit,” she said.

In addition, Cha Joo Young said, “There were many points where I was moved to sympathize with the message of “The Glory.” In my case, it reminded me of the experience of living abroad and living as a stranger before becoming an actor,” she said. “But I want to tell you that there are many good people and good moments come along. As you live, good days will definitely come.”
