The Glory season 1&2
The Glory is literally a masterpiece. It is about school bullying. Song Hye-Kyu and other actors too, in the drama slayed their roles. Song Hye-Kyu was bullied horribly in her high-school. They burnt her using hair curler rode, even beat crap out of her. She was tortured so badly that she even had to drop out from school. Her mother also left her and fled after taking money from mother of bullies.
Song Hye-Kyu worked in a factory and and studied by herself. She became a teacher and now she wants to avenge for herself from the bullies who are now among powerful, rich and prominent people of Korea.
Both seasons of the drama are equally interesting and thrilling. Once you start watching this drama, there is no going back. I recommend you to watch this, if you are a big fan of thriller Korean dramas. Watch to know how one Song Hye-Kyu avenges for herself and gets her glory back.
Flower Of Evil
The best thing which will entice you into watching this thriller Kdrama is the fatherly love of Lee Joon-gi as Baek Hee Sung towards her daughter in the drama.
In the crime thriller Flower of Evil, Lee Joon Gi plays an emotionless psychopath who attempts to move past his troubled past by changing his identity and gets married to a homicide detective (Moon Chae Won) who later gets incharged in handling the case of a serial murder in which Baek Hee Sung, her husband is involved and supposed to be the major suspect.
Baek Hee Sung was a perfect father and husband. They were so much in love with each other. Will she uncover the truth about him? What is the truth Baek Hee Sung is hiding from her wife.
I don’t think so that there is anyone who have not heard of this drama.
Vincenzo Cassano (Song Joong Ki) is a Korean who immigrated to Italy after being taken in by a mafia boss. However, Vincenzo is pursued by his brother after the death of his adoptive father. Running away from Italy, he heads back to his native South Korea in order to recover a gold treasure hidden in a retail building’s hidden basement. He arrives to discover that Babel Corporation, which intends to use the land to construct a skyscraper for the business, has scheduled the building’s demolition. Vincenzo has teamed up with the Geumga Plaza store owners in the hopes of stopping the demolition—at least for the duration needed to extract the gold.
Fortunately, he finds Hong Cha Young, a lawyer with an office in the same building, to be a trustworthy partner. Vincenzo discovers that safeguarding the people you care about is more crucial than seeking retribution as he grows to care about the lives of those at Geumga Plaza.
