Netflix's The Glory is the K-drama of the moment and fans have been praising it on social media. Currently, it's at number three on Netflix's global charts and number one on the streaming service's top 10 shows in the PH—further proving that *everyone* has been watching it (in one seating. Yes, that's us). While the plot itself is enough to have you in a chokehold, there's another reason why it's worth the applause!
The Glory is a revenge-driven series that tells the story of an elementary teacher named Moon Dong Eun. Back in high school, she was bullied by her schoolmates and this caused not only a deep scar in her life but also the will to get back at her perpetrators. With the help of people who have their own share of tragedies, Dong Eun plans her vengeance in detail and puts it into action.
All the actors in the K-drama have nailed their roles, but we have to say that the casting for the past characters is just *chef's kiss*! Did you know that two of them marks The Glory as their first acting project? This means that the team behind the show really searched for people who look like the main cast! The striking resemblance totally gave us goosebumps so it's just right to share that ~feeling~ with you.
