Ahn Gil-ho, the director of the Netflix original series "The Glory," has admitted to allegations of past school violence. According to Kim Moon-hee, a lawyer at Jipyeong and Ahn Gil-ho's legal representative, the director had a girlfriend while studying in the Philippines in 1996. When he heard that his girlfriend was being teased at school, he became emotional and hurt others.
Ahn Gil-ho has apologized to those who were hurt by his actions, stating, "I deeply ask for forgiveness from those who have been hurt by this incident. If I have a chance, I would like to apologize to you in person or through a wire." He also acknowledged that his past behavior was wrong, saying, "I'm sorry for causing a stir over something bad."
On the 10th, an individual known as A claimed that Ahn Gil-ho was a perpetrator of school violence. According to A, Ahn Gil-ho was a high school senior attending a local school in the Philippines in 1996, while A was taking a second-year middle school course at an international school. The incident began when Ahn Gil-ho dated B, a middle school girl at the time, and A and other classmates teased her. Ahn Gil-ho then ordered A and his friend to be brought to him through another student attending an international school, and the assault began.
A stated that there were about five older brothers, including Ahn Gil-ho, who participated in the assault. They beat A and his friend and threatened them, asking them to reveal the identities of those who teased their girlfriend. The assault continued for close to two hours.
Ahn Gil-ho's past behavior has been criticized, especially since he directed a warning program about school violence such as "The Glory." A stated that while he does not want to take issue with Ahn Gil-ho's success, it is absurd and unforgivable for a perpetrator of school violence to produce a program like "The Glory."
