The remaining episodes of The Glory have just been released on Netflix. And if you're like the many avid fans, you may have already started binge-watching the show. Unlike the first part, The Glory 2 is packed with action, suspense, and a lot of surprises.
Although it was anticipated that Moon Dong-Eun (played by Song Hye Kyo) would get her revenge by the end of the show, the big question was how she would achieve it. Would she have to kill anyone, considering Dr. Joo Yeo-Jeong (played by Lee Do-Hyun) agreed to be her executioner? How does her main enemy, Park Yeon-Jin (played by Lim Ji-Yeon), meet her match in the end of the show? Here's what you need to know.
Does Yeo-Jeong Kill Anyone in The Glory 2?
In the first part of The Glory, Yeo-Jeong promises that he'll be Dong-Eun's executioner after seeing her scars inflicted by Yeon-Jin. We then see glimpses of Dong-Eun's past, especially his connection with his father's killer, who continues to torment him even while he is in prison. In addition to this, Yeo-Jeong has a collection of knives and blades of different sizes. This suggests that Yeo-Jeong might have to be crazy enough to do the killing for Dong-Eun.
Thankfully, now that The Glory 2 has been released, we realize that Yeo-Jeong doesn't really need to kill anyone to help Dong-Eun. All he has to do is to be there for her and help him coax Yeon-Jin's secret from her.
How Does Dong-Eun Get Her Revenge?
Although Dong-Eun has been planning to get her revenge for 18 long years, things don't really go as planned. For starters, Son Myeong-O (played by Kim Gun-Woo) started to go missing in the middle of the first part of The Glory. Everyone started looking for Myeong-O, especially since he tried to blackmail his friends.
When Dong-Eun gets the police involved via Choi Hye-Jeong (played by Cha Joo-Young), things take a different turn. The bullies start to panic and look for ways they can blackmail Yeon-Jin when things turn for the worst.
In a way, Dong-Eun simply had to stir the pot and everyone acted without thinking about the repercussions. And because of that, it was their own doing that got them what they deserved in the end of the story.
Who Betrays Yeon-Jin in the End of The Glory 2?
So let's get to the nitty gritty of who betrayed Yeon-Jin in The Glory 2. As it turns out, Dong-Eun's 18-year-old revenge plot against her enemy worked even better than she planned. Her original plan was to expose Yeon-Jin so that her family and friends would isolate her. Once she is left on her own, Dong-Eun planned to take care of her by herself. But when Yeon-Jin unexpectedly killed Myeong-O, her fate was sealed for another direction.
Who betrays Yeon-Jin? Everyone does. For starters, her own husband, Ha Do-Young (played by Jung Sung-Il), gave Yeon-Jin a chance to right her mistake in a mature manner, especially since it was so long ago. But because Yeon-Jin was very egotistic in pretending she is the victim, her husband decided to divorce her. Apart from not showing any remorse or regret for what she did in the past, Yeon-Jin also cheated on Do-Young and even kept the truth on who Ha Ye-Sol's (played by Oh Ji-Yul) biological father was.
When it was revealed that Yeon-Jin killed and bullied in the past, Ye-Sol also lost her admiration for her mother. She told Yeon-Jin she no longer wants to be a weather reporter like her when she grows up.
As for her friends, Yeon-Jin's friends all waited for the perfect opportunity to take her down by securing their own evidence to use against her. Believing that it was Yeon-Jin's doing that her tax evasion actions were brought to the public, Lee Sa-Ra (played by Kim Hieora) published old videos showing Yeon-Jin harrassing Yoon So-Hee (played by Lee So-E) for no reason.
Choi Hye-Jeong (played by Cha Joo-Young) also sides with Dong-Eun for fear that she would reveal her secrets to her rich future mother-in-law, which would put an end to her engagement. Hye-Jeong also comes into possession of Myeong-O's tablet, which has a voice recording of his last conversation with Yeon-Jin saved to the cloud and synced to the device.
Meanwhile, the betrayal of Yeon-Jin's secret lover, Jeon Jae-Jun (played by Park Sung-Hoon), was a huge surprise. He has since agreed to be Yeon-Jin's alibi for the death of So-Hee. But now that the evidences against Yeon-Jin has piled up, Jae-Jun turns his back on her and prepares Hye-Jeong to take care of their daughter.
Yeon-Jin's own employees are eager to take down their boss, especially since she has been torturing and embarrassing them too. Even though Yeon-Jin assaulted Myeong-O, it was Kim Gyeong-Ran's (played by Ahn So-Yo) final blow that killed him that night. But Gyeong-Ran chose to get help from Dong-Eun, knowing she can help her out.

Why Did Yeon-Jin’s Mother Betray Her?
Another surprise in the show was that Yeon-Jin's own mother, Hong Yeong-Ae (played by Yoon Da-Kyung), betrayed her too. Dong-Eun set up Yeon-Jin by telling her to meet with her at a specific time. When she got there, however, she sees her mother handing her name tag to Dong-Eun. This name tag is important in the show since it was the evidence used in So-Hee's death that shows Yeon-Jin was at the crime scene. Upon seeing this, Yeon-Jin bursts into tears and is unable to believe her own mother would betray her to her worst enemy.
Dong-Eun, however, explains she doesn't really need the name tag at all. But she just this as a way to check if Yeon-Jin's mother was like her own mother, who would give up her daughter for money or reputation. Yeon-Jin is in disbelief at what happened.
When she gets imprisoned later in the show, she passes by her mother, who is also in jail for manslaughter. Her mother pretends not to know her and just continues walking silently.
Does Yeon-Jin Die in The Glory 2 Ending?
No, but she wishes she did.
Dong-Eun sends an anonymous tip to the police that the crime scene for Myeong-O's death is at the fitting lounge of Siesta. At the same time, she sends Yeon-Jin a video showing the champagne bottle (that she used to kill Myeong-O) on the counter. Yeon-Jin hurries to the store but is shocked to see that police officers are already there conducting a forensic investigation. She is arrested for the murder of So-Hee and Myeong-O.
The last we see of Yeon-Jin is that she is serving life in prison. At her cellmate's teasing, she scrambles to stand and give the weather report in a cheerful tone. Despite this tone, a teardrop falls from her eyes, seemingly hinting that her cellmates are bullying her to do what they want.
Do you think this is enough punishment for Yeon-Jin?
The Glory 2 is now available to stream on Netflix.
