Netflix THE GLORY Season 2 Nude Scene Controversy
Netflix The Glory has gained skyrocketing worldwide reputation due to its genius revenge plots against school bullying perpetrators. However, a part in Netflix The Glory Season 2 gained massive controversy: Choi Hye Jeong’s nude scene in episode 13.
During episode 13 of Netflix The Glory Season 2, Cha Joo Young’s character, Choi Hye Jeong, took off her clothes twice. The first time was during a scene where she entered the bathtub, approaching Jeon Jae Joon. And the second one was when she removed her shirt in front of Park Yeon Jin.
This nude scene in Netflix The Glory Season 2 shocked everyone as nobody had expected such a level of nudity in a well-plotted revenge genre of the series. That is why the nude scene in Netflix The Glory Season 2 immediately became a controversy in various online communities. While some viewers think that Choi Hye Jeong’s nude scene in Netflix The Glory Season 2 was understandable, others believe it was unnecessary to show nudity to such an extent.
- The nude scene was unnecessary.
- That scene was really unnecessary.
- They could’ve shown the actress’ back as she took off the clothes. I don’t like that they unnecessarily showed the nude scene.
- They seriously and unnecessarily asked for nudity…
- The Season 2 nude scene was really unnecessary, to be honest. I was so surprised! Do directors always need women’s bodies to perform art?
- I’m pretty sure the script only stated the shirt to be taken off and thrown. It would’ve been sufficient to show a silhouette. I really hate that they showed the explicit scene.
What Does the Scene REALLY Mean?
While South Korean netizens responded with mixed reactions against Netflix The Glory Season 2 nude scene, cast Cha Joo Young, who played Choi Hye Jeong, explained the meaning behind the scene.
According to Cha Joo Young, such nudity was necessary for her character. She believed Choi Hye Jeong had always felt inferior to her friends Lee Sa Ra and Park Yeon Jin. That is why she would do anything in her efforts to elevate her pride and status in front of her friends, including conducting plastic surgery on parts of her face and body.
Cha Joo Young explained she didn’t feel anxious and had no worries about the nude scene. She believed the nude scene ultimately expressed her character, Choi Hye Jeong. In the scene, Hye Jeong didn’t have anything to fear. She was confident to face Park Yeon Jin to the extent that she felt secure enough to reveal her body.
“I didn’t feel anxious or worried at all. I believe the scene completely expresses Hye Jeong.
Hye Jeong had never defeated her friends in anything. All she had was her body. So at least for that moment, Hye Jeong had nothing to feel envious about.
At the time, we shot the scene with pride that Hye Jeong was really cool. And the production team was also very considerate.
So yes, we did what was necessary in a necessary scene for a necessary role.”Cha Joo Young.
Netflix THE GLORY Season 2 Cast Cha Joo Young Explained the Truth Behind Her Nude Scene
As the controversy regarding Netflix The Glory nude scene circulated on the internet and social media, actress Cha Joo Young eventually revealed the truth.
OSEN reported an interview with The Glory Season 2 cast Cha Joo Young on March 15 at a cafe in Sogyeok-dong, Jongno District, Seoul.
During the interview, Cha Joo Young revealed that the nude scene in Neflix The Glory Season 2 was actually done using body double and CG.
Partial Use of Body Double and CG
According to Cha Joo Young, she acted in the first scene in which she entered the bathtub with Jeon Jae Joon, up to the point where she took off her shirt, revealing her underwear. When the drama showed Hye Jeong entering the tub shirtless, they used a body double for the scene.
As for the second scene with Park Yeon Jin, Cha Joo Young stated that it was originally her whole body. However, in the drama, Choi Hye Jeong is a character who has performed breast augmented surgery. And since Cha Joo Young doesn’t have augmented breasts, they had to use CG or computer-generated imagery to replace her breasts with a body double with augmented breast surgery.
“From the moment I took on Hye Jeong’s role, I knew I had to perform the scene. I had talked about it a lot with the writer and director.
Hye Jeong herself made it clear that she had breast augmented surgery. However, I didn’t have that.
The part that many people were curious about was whether we used CG for the scene.
It’s hard to say that I didn’t take off my clothes. I know it sounds vague, but I wanted to accurately point out that, yes, it was my body.
However, we also prepared a body double and CG. We put a lot of effort into the second part of The Glory, so I didn’t just take off my clothes for no reason.
So, in the scene with Jae Joon, where it showed my back, we used a body double. However, for the scene where I took off my shirt, it was truly my body. So, yes, it was part of my body, and we used CG only for the necessary parts.”Cha Joo Young.
A Model was Furious After Facing Accusations of Being the Body Double in Netflix THE GLORY Nude Scene
After Cha Joo Young confirmed the use of a body double in Netflix The Glory Season 2 nude scene, many viewers suspected that model, A, was the one performing as the body double.
Model A became furious about the accusations. She then uploaded a statement on Instagram, denying her involvement in The Glory Korean drama.
“It’s not me. I have nothing to do with The Glory at all.
I went to the department store to buy snacks for my kids when I received a call from my friend. So I rushed home immediately.
To all the reporters and bloggers who wrote those rumors as facts without verification procedures, please take down your articles and posts.
I am writing this because I am embarrassed and don’t know what to do. So I will delete all DMs without reading them.”Model A.
As of today, no further information is available about who performed Cha Joo Young’s body double in Netflix The Glory Season 2 nude scene.
