During the interview, Song Hye-kyo contemplated the future of her character in “The Glory” after achieving her revenge. She pondered, “[She] would be doing just fine, but she wouldn’t forgive herself for the lives she ruined in her quest for vengeance.” The complexity of her character was evident in her enduring guilt and remorse for the pain she had inflicted upon innocent individuals. She envisioned her character living a life of perpetual self-redemption, offering her own form of apologies, and bracing herself for any consequences that might come her way.
