The Glory director Ahn Gil Ho issues apology following school bullying allegations

The director 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.

As the Korean tabloid Soompi reports, the anonymous person (‘A’) alleged that while Ahn Gil Ho was studying abroad in the Philippines, Ahn Gil Ho threatened and assaulted A and their classmates after finding out that they teased his girlfriend at the time.

While Ahn Gil Ho denied the allegations saying that he has no memory of hitting anyone, The Glory’s production company said in response to the allegations that they will investigate the situation. On March 12, Ahn Gil Ho’s lawyer released an official statement writing “I am lawyer Kim Mun Hui of law firm JIPYONG who is representing director Ahn Gil Ho.”

“We ask for your understating in that there was a slight delay in time from the initial report to announcing our stance,” he added. “Director Ahn Gil Ho had a girlfriend whom he started dating at the time while studying abroad in the Philippines in 1996, and when he heard that his girlfriend became subject to teasing at school due to him, he momentarily got emotional and gave another person an unforgettable wound.”

The statement further goes on, “[Director Ahn Gil Ho] asks for forgiveness from deep within his heart to those who were hurt by this incident. If given the opportunity, he would like to meet in person, or at least contact through phone, to convey his apology. [Director Ahn Gil Ho] apologizes for causing controversy over an unfortunate incident.”

Soompi further notes that the director shared “it took time to check the facts as the incident happened 27 years ago and that the people involved recalled the exact details differently,” adding that “he was afraid of distorting the incident.”
