'Queen of Tears' side "Kim Soo-hyun's appearance fee is 800 million NO per episode"
The production company of tvN's 'Queen of Tears' denied reports that Kim Soo-hyun received 800 million won per episode as an appearance fee.

On the 26th, Studio Dragon, the production company of 'Queen of Tears', emphasized to Ten Asia, "The 800 million won per episode appearance fee is not true at all," and "It is far from the truth."

On this day, a media outlet reported that Kim Soo-hyun was known to have received 800 million won per episode in 'Queen of Tears'. If 800 million is correct, this is equivalent to one-third of the production cost of approximately 40 billion.

'Queen of Tears', with a production cost of about 40 billion won, is about the dizzying crisis and miracle of Hong Hae-in (played by Kim Ji-won), the third generation of the Queen's Group conglomerate and queen of department stores, and Baek Hyun-woo (played by Kim Soo-hyun), the son of the head of Yongduri and the king of supermarkets, a married couple for three years. It is a drama about a love story that begins again.

It is a new work by writer Park Ji-eun, who has been a hit with each of his works such as 'My Love from the Star' (2013), 'The Producers' (2015), and 'Crash Landing on You' (2019), and is Kim Soo-hyun's first work in about 4 years, and has been attracting attention even before the broadcast. It attracted a lot of attention. This is Kim Soo-hyun's third time working with writer Park Ji-eun, following 'My Love from the Star' and 'The Producers'.

‘Queen of Tears’ has surpassed the highest viewership rating of 14% in just 6 episodes and is sweeping both viewership ratings and topicality.
