During their confrontation, she suddenly removes her blouse, exposing her breasts. Many viewers were taken aback by the provocative scene, labeling it as “unnecessary.”
One viewer commented, “Not only was it uncomfortable to watch, the nudity also felt out of place. It added no value to the show’s plot.”

In the end credits of “The Glory,” a talent named Lee Do Yeon was mentioned as “Choi Hye Jeong’s body double,” leading fans to conclusion.
Speculations stated that the production unit used computer graphics and advanced technology to replace the actress’ body with the one of her body double.
In “The Glory,” Cha Joo Young’s character had breast enhancement surgery which further strengthened fans’ hunches that the body double was used for the provocative scenes.
Even more so, viewers believe that the actress may not actually expose her own breasts as she refused to wear a body-hugging dress that was requested by the director.
