tvN's new Saturday-Sunday drama 'Queen of Tears' heralded the birth of an all-time romance that will make the world buzz.

'Queen of Tears' is the story of a dizzying crisis and a miraculous restart of love between Hong Hae-in (played by Kim Ji-won), a third-generation Queen's group conglomerate and the queen of department stores, and Baek Hyun-woo (played by Kim Soo-hyun), the son of the head of Yongduri and a supermarket prince, a married couple of three years.

'Queen of Tears' predicts a variety of fun, from the combination of the writer, director, and actors to the unique characters and the miraculous romance they will create. Ahead of the first broadcast, we have pointed out the key points to watch for 'Queen of Tears' that you must know.

Writer-director-actor, a thrilling combination of the century

'Queen of Tears' is a collaboration between writer Park Ji-eun, whose drama 'Crash Landing on You' recorded the highest ratings among tvN dramas of all time, director Jang Young-woo of 'Bulgasal', and director Kim Hee-won of 'Vincenzo' and 'Little Women'. In addition, it is raising expectations by building a solid lineup of actors just by name, including actors Kim Soo-hyun (as Baek Hyun-woo), Kim Ji-won (as Hong Hae-in), Park Seong-hoon (as Yoon Eun-seong), Kwak Dong-yeon (as Hong Soo-cheol), and Joo-bin Lee (as Cheon Da-hye).

In particular, Kim Soo-hyun and Kim Ji-won, nicknamed 'rom-com king' and 'rom-com queen' respectively, are expected to demonstrate fantastic synergy by working together as a married couple for three years. Accordingly, expectations are even greater for ‘Queen of Tears’, which will be created through the chemistry between the writer, director, and actors.

Rushing waves of emotion, heightened immersion

In the play, Baek Hyun-woo (played by Kim Soo-hyun) moves up from Yongdu-ri in the countryside, joins Queens Group, and falls in love with Hong Hae-in (played by Kim Ji-won), whom he met when he was a new employee. The news that Hong Hae-in, the daughter of Korea's top conglomerate, chose Baek Hyun-woo, a new employee out of numerous husband candidates, and got married for love shook the world, and the two have been married for three years, being called the 'marriage of the century'.

However, there is a huge difference between the married life that I had only imagined and the reality. After getting married, Baek Hyun-woo sheds tears every day due to the cruel life of his in-laws in a chaebol family and his wife's harsh treatment. It has been a long time since he became disappointed with his husband, who contradicts everything Hong Hae-in says.

Finally, Baek Hyun-woo tries to declare divorce to Hong Hae-in, but due to his wife's bombshell announcement, the couple's relationship begins to take an unexpected direction. The longer we spend together, the more we discover new charms that we didn't know about before, and our emotions change. Attention is focused on whether Baek Hyun-woo and Hong Hae-in will be able to regain their feelings for each other through these changes.

The greatest conglomerate, Queens - the rural Yongduri village head's family, the meeting of the century between two polar opposite families.

The meeting of the two families who became connected through the marriage of Baek Hyun-woo and Hong Hae-in is also attracting attention. The Yongduri village chief's family, who dominate a rural village, and the Queen's family, the largest conglomerate in Korea, become in-laws through the marriage of the century. While Baek Hyun-woo continues to live with his wife's family regardless of time and place, Hong Hae-in feels awkward because he has not seen his in-laws even once since his marriage. I am curious about the meeting of two extremely opposite families, whether Baek Hyun-woo, the supermarket prince who fell into the Queen's group, and Hong Hae-in, the Queen's group queen who fell into the Yongduri, will be able to adapt safely to each other's environment.

‘Queen of Tears’ will premiere on the 9th.
