Song Hye Kyo is officially back in the spotlight with the continuous arrival of new projects in her career.
After playing the role of Cha Soo-Hyun on tvN's Encounter, Song Hye Kyo waited for years until she finally landed on the new series, Now, We Are Breaking Up. The series marks her comeback to the small screen and her co-star Jang Ki-Young's last role before starting his military duties.
Although the series is yet to end its romantic story, the actress garnered another role which she would work on starting next year.

The Glory tells the story of Song Hye Kyo's character, who suffered from bullying. The woman takes revenge on the bully by becoming the homeroom teacher of the tyrant's child. Other details about the actress' role remain unknown.

Meanwhile, multiple news outlets claimed Lee Do Hyun is currently being considered to take on the role of the male lead. His character helps Song Hye Kyo take revenge against her bully.
Since both Song Hye Kyo and Lee Do Hyun are currently tied with their current dramas Now, We Are Breaking Up and Melancholia, respectively, it is expected that the filming for The Glory would start once they finish their projects.
