With The Glory's meticulously written storyline and its star-studded cast members, the K-drama being at the number one spot on Netflix PH's Top 10 TV Shows is no surprise at all! The series did not only serve as an eye-opener to the viewers. It also made us familiar with great actors and actresses that we have not watched before.
In my case, it introduced me to Cha Joo Young, who plays Choi Hye Jeong on the small screen. I recently found out that outside the world of The Glory, she also did a TikTok challenge with SEVENTEEN's BSS unit! Joo Young is now set to lead KBS2's upcoming weekend series The Real Has Come which will premiere this March 25. As we wait to see a different side of her in this new show, we have prepared a list of dramas she was cast in for you to binge-watch!
