There is a chance that The Glory could become mega-successful screenwriter Kim Eun Sook‘s “best” drama when all is said and done, and that’s a epic feat to pull off. To her fans and detractors alike, she delivers hits with plenty of complaints but viewers tune in. For Netflix drama The Glory, there will never be a ratings number to measure against her previous works but I can say that other than City Hall (which I am biased towards) none of her dramas can be considered perfect from beginning to end. But The Glory is currently perfect through midway and I genuinely want the the second half to hit it out of the park. The new posters for part 2 are too mesmerizing to parse other than to soak in as the audience watching an epic revenge opera unfold.
I agree that if she can pull off a satisfying ending this could be a Kdrama for the record books. But, dang, a great ending to a Kdrama happens about 0.001% of the time. Still, my fingers and toes are crossed!
