Unraveling the truth 

With a plan in execution and allies, Dong Eun is finally on her way to achieve her ultimate dream, and make those who hurt her and many other people pay for their crimes.

However, she also finds out about his issues and own revenge plans, but decides to keep quiet until he is able to share his own issues with her. 

With Dong Eun making the last moves in the game, all her focus is to make everyone pay for their crimes. The game turns violent and difficult as she and Ji Yeon play the last cards, the former for justice, and the latter for survival. 

Justice is served

The Glory’ for its second part gets even bolder and bloodier, in this second part we get to know  a lot more about the characters and their thoughts, and as it develops it gets more psychological and fascinating to follow. 

As expected from its first part, this series isn’t afraid to touch on current sensitive topics, and cover the social class inequality, corruption, and even sects disguised as churches. The sub-plots in this drama don’t hold back and become an important factor for Dong eun and her revenge. 

When it comes to the acting and performance, this drama provides one of the finest and most flawless performances on TV. Everything about these characters was believable, and really made viewers either hate them, feel pity for them or love them.
