Song Hye Kyo starrer The Glory’s director Ahn Gil Ho recently saw himself embroiled in school bullying allegations ahead of the drama’s premiere. The allegations became a hot topic as the hit Netflix drama follows the revenge story of a character who suffered severe bullying in high school.
The Glory director Ahn Gil Ho denies school bullying allegations made ahead of season 2 premiere
According to the Korean tabloid Soompi, ahead of the drama’s season 2 premiere, school bullying allegations against Ahn Gil Ho began circulating online communities as a victim (‘A’) explained that they were unaware of Ahn Gil Ho’s work as a director.
The victim shared, “To be honest, if Ahn Gil Ho is living well, I don’t care to make an issue out of that. However, I’ve come to reveal this as it’s absurd and unforgivable for a school bully to direct a program like ‘The Glory’ that is meant to raise awareness about school violence.”
‘A’ alleged they were a victim of Ahn Gil Ho's bullying during their middle school years around 1996 when the director was their high school senior in the Philippines. The director was allegedly dating a middle schooler at the time. A and their friends alleged that when they poked fun at Ahn Gil Ho’s girlfriend, he asked his friends to bring ‘A’ and their friends to him and assaulted them.
‘A’ continued, "At the time, I was too scared to count, but there were 10 of them, including Director Ahn. We were assaulted and interrogated, and when we didn't respond, he threatened to stab us. The assault went on for about 2 hours," adding, "After assaulting us first, Director Ahn ordered our school seniors to assault my classmates. Before that, we were close because we grew up together.”
“However, we were hit after what happened for not showing respect or for not bowing to our seniors properly," the victim continued before concluding, "If Director Ahn denies it, I'll provide you with testimonies from my friends who were assaulted with me. If he denies it and takes legal action, I'll also respond actively. He's shameless."
The Glory’s production company Studio Dragon responded to the allegations by stating that they will investigate the veracity of the situation. Additionally, as the outlet shares, Ahn Gil Ho personally denied the allegations saying that while it’s true he studied abroad in the Philippines for a year, he has no memory of hitting anyone.
Meanwhile, Netflix’s The Glory premiered worldwide on March 10 at 5 p.m. KST.
