Who Killed Myeong-O?

Myeong-O is probably the most hyper character in this series. He used to be Jae-Jun’s errand boy, doing his dirty work without questioning everything. He didn’t even go to college so that he could serve his boss and work for him. Myeong-O considered himself Jae-Jun’s best friend and followed him everywhere. Jae-Jun wasn’t Myeong-O’s fan though, he couldn’t care less about Myeong-O. When Dong-Eun approached Myeong-O and asked him to help her go against his friends, things did seem a bit complicated and unbelievable.

The first part of this engrossing thriller K-drama ended on an intriguing cliffhanger. Myeong-O, the former assailant of the bully gang and then an ally of Dong-Eun has been found dead. He was found lying in a pool of blood, with shards of a champagne bottle transfixed in his skull. Everyone from Jae-Jun and Yeon-Jin to Dong-Eun was on the suspects’ list. But The Glory wouldn’t be such a popular series if it wasn’t full of surprises, right? Gyeong-Ran is the one who ended Myeong-O’s life!

Why Did Gyeong-Ran Kill Myeong-O?

Who Killed Myeong-O?

We all know how Myeong-O has been helping Dong-Eun who assigned him the task of getting Yeon-Jin to confess her sins. And while Myeong-O is an arrogant idiot, he does try his best to do so. He calls her and asks Yeon-Jin to come to meet him. Setting his phone on the voice recording mode, Myeong-O has laid out the perfect trap for Yeon-Jin. But here comes another twist!

Yeon-Jin finds out about his plan before he could get her confession. In a fit of rage, Yeon-Jin ends up pouring a whole bottle of champagne on Myeong-O’s phone. Like the angry hulk he is, Myeong-O starts throwing accusations and utters a string of curses. Being the self-centred woman she is, Yeon-Jin, cannot care about Myeong-O’s little that is until the other shoe drops.

When Myeong-O claims that he knows who is the father of Yeon-Jin’s daughter, she loses her composure. They fight verbally at first but then, Yeon-Jin ends up bursting a champagne bottle on Myeong-O’s death and leaves the place. But it isn’t Yeon-Jin who killed him though, he was still alive when she left the place. It was Gyeong-Ran who ended what Yeon-Jin started. She could have saved him but who would want to help their tormentor?

What Happens To Gyeong-Ran at The End Of The Glory Part 2?

We all know Myeong-O had a few screws loose, he just couldn’t fathom anyone else’s emotions. You could even call him heartless and it would be a smaller term. Gyeong-Ran, the manager of the boutique store frequented by the entire bully gang, was another victim. Aside from torturing Dong-Eun and So-He, Gyeong-Ran has suffered through Myeong-O’s hands as well. Although she didn’t know them from high school, she wished she didn’t know them at all.

When Yeon-Jin was throwing a fit, Gyeong-Ran was hiding in the secret passageway used by these cruel bullies. She did hear them fight and Yeon-Jin stomps away from her so-called friend. As she steps out of her hiding and founds Myeong-O gasping for air, Gyeong-Ran is thrown aback. She is reminded about the times Myeong-O abused her.

When Myeong-O asks–or more like orders–her to help, she panics and ends up bursting his skill. Of course, it wasn’t on purpose and Gyeong-Ran is not a killer like them but she did end Myeong-O’s life. Dong-Eun finds out about her involvement in the end and while she could have framed her, Dong-Eun knows Gyeong-Ran isn’t a murderer. So, Gyeong-Ran is left to pursue her career in peace with all these bullies out of her life. The Glory part 2’s end is indeed a blend of revenge, compassion, love and secrets!
