Lately, The Glory is one of the trending shows on Netflix, thanks to its well-written revenge story paired with the superb acting from the cast. Not to mention, the cliffhanger ending that the show left us is something that fans will be eager to look forward to.

One of the things many are interested to know in the ending of The Glory is what happened to Yoon So Hee's body. Here's what we know and some speculations.

Yoon So Hee is portrayed by Lee So-e who was in Single's Inferno 2. So Yi also appeared in The First Responders.

Before entering the industry, So-e changed her name from Lee Jang Hee. She graduated from Hanyang University's Department of Theater and Film.

Throughout the duration of the show, we learn that Moon Dong Eun (played by Song Hye Kyo) is not the only victim of school violence. When she was a teenager, Dong Eun (played by Jung Ji So) witnessed So Hee falling from a building because of Park Yeon Jin (played by Shin Ye Eun). After that incident, she was targeted by Yeon Jin as her next victim.

Little did Yeon Jin know that Dong Eun actually witnessed the murder, which was ruled out as a suicide by the coroner. Dong Eun kept this a secret and used it as leverage when she got acted out her revenge plan on Yeon Jin.

In the final episode of the show, however, we learned that the cold cabinet that contains So Hee's body is empty. Joo Yeo Jeong (played by Lee Do Hyun) opened the cabinet in the morgue and discovers that the body is no longer there, which makes us wonder what happened to it.

Right now, there are two possible things that could have happened to Yoon So Hee's body. The first theory is that Yeon Jin has paid off her thugs to dispose of So Hee's body so that there will be no crime to link with her.

After all, it's possible that Yeon Jin could be behind Son Myeong O's (played by Kim Gun Woo) disappearance. There are some speculations that Myeong O threatened to blackmail Yeon Jin after what Dong Eun told him. So it's possible that Yeon Jin had her thugs dispose of the body.

Another possible explanation is that Dong Eun could have been bluffing from the beginning and So Hee is actually alive. The two could be working together in conspiring how they could act out their revenge against their high school bullies.

But then again, the coroner was able to notice So Hee's body since it has been in the morgue for several years. It's likely that So Hee is still alive at this point, unless he is part of the plan.

If the first scenario is true, it's interesting to know how Dong Eun will react and if she has any moves planned in this case. We'll have to know what happens when The Glory Season 2 returns to Netflix in March 2023.

We finally know what happened to So Hee and where she is all this time. As it turns out, the owner of Seoul Joo General Hospital, Dr. Joo Sung-Hak (played by Choi Kwang-Il) decided to put her body in the freezer instead of the morgue.

Since So Hee's mother (played by Kim Nam-Jin) did not since the waiver, the hospital cannot release the body and had to store it in the morgue until one of the remaining family members will do so. But Dr. Sung-Hak decided to keep So Hee's body in the freezer instead of the morgue in order to preserve it since he suspected foul play. All this time, the body has been preserved in the freezer in the event that the case will be reopened and an autopsy should be needed.

When it was time for Dong Eun to pay the bill for So Hee's body storage, she was told that the bill had been settled by Jaepyeong Construction, which is owned by Ha Do Young (played by Jung Sung Il), Yeon Jin's estranged husband, after learning of his wife's mistake in the past.

The Glory 2 is now streaming on Netflix.
