‘The Glory’ Part 2: Cha Joo Young reveals the story of the infamous white dress

January 20, 2023

All eyes are now on the sequel to Song Hye Kyo’s hit Netflix series The Glory Part 2. While the series is on hiatus after the release of the first few episodes, Cha Joo Young, who portrays one of the bullies, revealed the story behind the series’ famous white dress in an interview with Allure Korea on Thursday, January 19.

Cha Joo spoke about her role as Choi Hye Jeong in The Glory. Among the many eye-catching scenes she did is wearing the white dress of her character’s friend, Lee Sa Ra (Kim Hieora). How did she pull off this look?

The actress described her role as a woman struggling to copy and emulate her rich friends. Hence, she has shared some thoughts to portray her role as best as possible.

Luckily she got a go signal. Besides the infamous white dress, she’s also put a lot of thought into the different outfits she’s wearing on the show, as well as her hairstyle and makeup.

She also wanted to portray her role as a flight attendant as a rather reserved woman, but who portrays the opposite when she’s not working. Also, Cha Joo gained a little weight for her role in The Glory as her figure is very voluptuous and she underwent breast augmentation.

That’s why she didn’t go on a diet and maintained her weight during the filming of the series. On the subject of the white dress, the 32-year-old revealed it was supposed to be a different outfit, but the styling team had prepared a different dress.

The first dress was tweed, a little bit cuter, but the director wanted the white dress more. At first, the Again My Life star didn’t want to wear it, fearing it would look too big on the small screen. But after choosing this outfit, she was surprised by the attention this scene received.

In the meantime, in a few months, fans will see the release of The Glory Part 2. Netflix has finally released the first photos from the series, which show Moon Dong Eun (Song Hye Kyo) almost crying while Joo Yeo Jeong (Lee Do Hyun) gives her an intense gaze.

Park Yeon Jin (Lim Ji Yeon) also looks serious when she makes a phone call. Also, Ha Do Yeong (Jung Sung II) plays Go with Joo Yeo Jeong, while Jeon Jae Joon (Park Sung Hoon) is seen with a bloody face near a police station.

The Glory Part 2 will hit theaters on March 10th.
