Netflix’s “The Glory” screenwriter, Kim Eun Sook, has donated 20 million won to help restore the village of Guryong following a recent fire.
According to the National Disaster Relief Association on March 7, Kim Eun Sook donated 20 million won to aid those affected by the fire in Guryong village. The writer urged others to contribute as well, stating “Please help our neighbors who were affected by the fire in Guryong village.” Yoon Ha-rim, CEO of production company Hwa&Dam Pictures, also donated 20 million won.
Kim Eun Sook is a member of the “Hope Bridge Honors Club,” a group of donors who have contributed over 100 million won to various disaster relief efforts since 2014, including the Sewol ferry disaster, the Pohang earthquake, flooding, and several fires. Yoon has also contributed the same amount since 2017.
Meanwhile, Kim set to release part two of “The Glory” on Netflix on March 10. This is the writer’s first venture into the genre, and the series follows the story of a woman who seeks revenge after a lifetime of soul-crushing violence, and the individuals who become swept up in the aftermath of her plans. Part one of the series quickly gained popularity, reaching third place on the global top 10 TV shows list for non-English programs on Netflix within three days of its release.
