Now that the festive season is behind us, you may well be wondering how to beat the January blues.

Well, if you fancy a good old-fashioned Netflix binge, it looks like The Glory should be your show of choice, as it's being praised by viewers as 'disturbing but absolutely brilliant'. Check out the trailer below:

The K-drama hit the streaming service on 30 December, and it centres around a young woman's single-minded desire for revenge on her school bullies.

Namely, by becoming a teacher herself and taking a job at the school of one of her bully's children - eighteen years after being tormented at high school.

The show's official synopsis reads: "Years after surviving horrific abuse in high school, a woman puts an elaborate revenge scheme in motion to make the perpetrators pay for their crimes."

Originally produced in Korean, the show is available to watch with English subtitles, and has become a top 10 hit in the US.

It stars Song Hye-kyo as Moon Dong-eun, the relentlessly bullied woman, and she's joined alongside an all-star cast.

Despite having been released just a week, TV fans have been taking to social media to praise the drama, which is being released in two parts.

Reacting to the show in the Facebook group Netflix Bangers, one emotional fan wrote: "I'm currently watching The Glory on Netflix [UK].

"I'm on episode one and I've had to pause half way through as it's really upsetting me."

This prompted another user to add: "I'm on episode 2 it's brilliant I can't wait for her to get her revenge [sic]."

A third agreed, adding: "[It] is absolutely brilliant. Disturbing and risky."

Meanwhile, on Twitter, one fan praised: "I watched The Glory in one sitting yesterday 10/10. It was SO GOOD and loved everything about it. The storylines are just amazing! I LOVE IT!

"[Song Hye-Kyo]'s performance in this is [fire]. She's so magnetic in this role. Can't wait for part 2!"

A second added: "You know a show is doing its job when you cant stop hitting next episode."

"If you want to watch something dark and disturbing to kick off 2023, look no further than #TheGlory on Netflix," recommended a third.

"Compelling, and it should be compulsory viewing for all high school kids. Particularly the rich, popular ones."

Reacting to the teaser for part two, another viewer gushed: "Revenge hasn't even started

"No matter what you imagine, season 2 is more than that. I'm so much more excited now [sic]."

Part two of the series, which promises to ramp up the action even more, is set to be released in March 2023.
