Need More Of “The Glory”? 7 K-Drama Revenge Thrillers To Watch While You Wait For Part 2
Revenge is a dish best served immediately, but The Glory fans will have to wait until March 10th for Part 2 of this thrilling Netflix series. Until then, here are 7 more K-Dramas to slake your thirst for vengeance.
1. Reborn Rich
This highly-rated series stars Song Joong Ki as Yoon Hyun Woo, a loyal employee who served his chaebol employers well–until they murdered him. Little does his killer know that death is just the beginning. Instead of passing through the pearly gates, Yoon Hyun Woo is reborn in 1987 as part of the Soonyang family. He’ll use his new identity to find out which family member killed him and exact revenge.
2. Revenge of Others
Ok Chan Mi’s twin brother died by suicide–or did he? This shooting champ isn’t about to let the police close the case while a killer is still on the loose. To find out the truth, Ok Chan Mi (Shin Ye Eun) transfers to her twin’s school, where she meets the perfect partner in crime: a boy who’s seeking his own revenge.
Like The Glory‘s heroine, Lee Ra El (Seo Ye Ji) has hatred festering within her. After witnessing her family’s destruction and her father’s death, she spends 13 years plotting revenge against those responsible. While living under a false identity as a ballet teacher, Lee Ra El infiltrates the lives of the people who destroyed hers.
4. My Name
Some revenge thrillers are psychological, but if gritty, fast-paced action is more your thing, check out My Name. Yoon Ji Woo (Han So Hee) enters the perilous criminal underworld to avenge her father’s death. With the head of a drug cartel as her mentor, she’ll give up her future, her name, and even her life if it means putting a bullet in her father’s killer.
5. Remarriage & Desires
Seo Hye Seung (Kim Hee Sun) went from living the perfect posh life to watching it crumble before her eyes. Her cheating husband ends his life after his mistress outs him for stashing illegal funds in her name. Through an upper-class matchmaking service, Seo Hye Seung encounters the woman who brought ruin to her family. And guess what? She’s not letting it go…
6. World of the Married
World of the Married is a domestic revenge thriller starring Kim Hee Ae as Ji Sun Woo, a happily married woman who makes a shocking discovery. Her husband has been cheating on her for years with an unapologetic, young mistress–but it gets worse. Everyone in Ji Sun Woo’s life has been keeping her husband’s secrets. Like The Glory‘s heroine, Ji Sun Woo is as methodical as she is vengeful…and that doesn’t bode well for anyone who’s crossed her.
7. The Penthouse: War in Life
If you want revenge, class divides, melodrama, soap opera theatrics, and a villain who will strangle your last nerve, The Penthouse: War in Life is for you. This 3-season series gets wilder with each episode, and its characters are as insane as its plot twists. The Penthouse follows the residents of the elite Hera Palace residents, including a poor mother who rises through the ranks to cut down her archnemesis.
