The Glory Part 2 Ending Explained

When we first met Moon Dong-Eun, she wore a cold expression and was hiding her angry red scars. She was out there to exert revenge on her high-school bullies–Lee Sa-Ra, Son Myeong-O, Hye-Jeong, Park Yeon-Jin and Jeon Jae-Jun. If these people weren’t wealthy and influential, Dong-Eun wouldn’t have had to wait for years and search for an accomplice to exert her revenge. In the first part of The Glory, we witnessed how Dong-Eun got closer to Joo Yeo-Jeong, a surgeon and the heir to Joo General Hospital.

He taught her to play Go so that she could beat Do-Yeong, offered to be her executioner and somewhere along the line fell for Dong-Eun. Do-Yeong is Yeon-Jin’s husband and a multimillionaire business mogul. Dong-Eun wants Do-Yeong to help her in her pursuit, but reaching him isn’t easy. She becomes a teacher at Yeon-Jin’s daughter’s school and inserts herself into every aspect of her life.

As the series progresses, Do-Yeong learns several things about his corrupted wife. She isn’t just a bully, she has also cheated on him with her high-school sweetheart and another member of Dong-Eun’s target list, Jae-Jun. Both Do-Yeong and Jae-Jun slowly discover that Ye-Sol is Jae-Jun’s daughter and that Yeon-Jin has been hiding it from them purposefully. Meanwhile, Yeo-Jeong is trying to instil colours in Dong-Eun’s monochromatic life. But there is So-He’s death lurking on the threshold and of course, there is Dong-Eun’s revenge awaiting her.

Who Is Responsible For So-He’s Death?

The Glory Part 2 Ending Explained

So-He is another target of this bully gang, specifically of Yeon-Jin. Just like Dong-Eun, she was tortured and bullied by Yeon-Jin. Jae-Jun made her life hell but Yeon-Jin took it to another level, always belittling her and throwing random abusive comments at her. One day, So-He was found dead and everyone thought she jumped from the school building. Why would anyone who was planning to move away and secure a better future do that?

So-He’s mother has been begging everyone to help her ever since, claiming that she needs to see her late daughter once. But since she is in a morgue at Yeo-Jeong’s hospital, she is helpless. Dong-Eun isn’t though, she has sworn to avenge her and So-He. 

So, she pursues Yeo-Jeong, so that she could get the evidence she needs against Yeon-Jin. She thinks Yeon-Jin killed So-He but she just slipped from the building when Yeon-Jin was bullying her. Even though Yeon-Jin didn’t actively push her down, she is why it all happened. And she will be punished for it.

Why Does Dong-Eun Leave Yeo-Jeong?

“If you leave me again, it should be for love not revenge, Dong-Eun.”

As the series keeps progresses, Dong-Eun’s vengeance is getting deeper and so are her feelings towards Yeo-Jeong. We all know how abusive Dong-Eun’s mother has been, and how this drinking junkie has never cared for her. This woman has hurt Dong-Eun as much Yeon-Jin, physically and emotionally. We thought Dong-Eun had been troubled by these bullies, we would have never thought her backstory would be as dark. For someone to heal these scars, it would take a lot of effort, love and patience.

Yeo-Jeong has a substantial amount of love and patience for her and it has started to affect Dong-Eun as well. Of course, he has his own dark past and is still affected by his father’s death. But Yeo-Jeong hasn’t let it affect Dong-Eun, he is ready to wait for her until she has got her revenge. It is his love towards Dong-Eun that makes her run away from him. And as he said, the next time Dong-Eun leaves him it is because of love, nothing else.

Does Dong-Eun Finally Get Her Revenge?

Coming to the juiciest part of the series, the ending part, it is quite chaotic. Do-Yeong’s mother has discovered about Ye-Sol’s father, Jae-Jun, and starts running after Yeon-Jin with a stick. Dong-Eun has posted about Sa-Ra’s drug addiction and has exposed Yeon-Jin publicly, too. Kang Heyon-Nam, Yeon-Jin’s former maid, has helped her take down her enemies.

De-Yeong has left Yeon-Jin as well. Her friends are also paying for their sins and she is all alone in a prison cell. Dong-Eun has exerted her revenge and got what she wanted–Yeon-Jin rotting alone, away from money, glamour and her so-called friends. And while she has got her revenge, Yeo-Jeong isn’t left behind. He gets his revenge for his father’s murder, Kang Yeong-Cheon, too. While The Glory has always been about Dong-Eun’s revenge, it has improved, too. Not only Dong-Eun gets revenge, but she also has someone who wouldn’t leave her side under any circumstances.
