Kim Soo-hyun found the only way to save Kim Ji-won, but Kim Ji-won refused the surgery due to the side effect of losing her gear.

In the 13th episode of tvN's Saturday-Sunday drama 'Queen of Tears', which aired on the 20th, Baek Hyun-woo (played by Kim Soo-hyun) and Hong Hae-in (played by Kim Ji-won) faced off at the crossroads of a cruel choice in which they had to lose their precious memories in order to gain life. On this day, the viewer ratings recorded an average of 22.3% and a maximum of 24.2% for households in the metropolitan area, and an average of 20.2% and a maximum of 21.9% for households nationwide.

In viewership ratings for men and women in 2049, which is tvN's target, it soared to an average of 10.1% and a maximum of 11.1% in the metropolitan area, and an average of 9.8% and a maximum of 10.7% nationwide, breaking its own record once again.

During the funeral of Hong Man-dae (played by Kim Gap-su), the eldest member of the family, Hong Hae-in silently watched the entire process and was overcome with strange emotions. Hong Hae-in, who was confiding her complicated feelings to her husband, blushed and expressed her sincerity, saying, “I want to live.” Baek Hyun-woo also couldn't say anything to his wife and swallowed his tears alone, creating a bitter feeling.

In response to the Red Sea people's words that they want to live in this situation, good news came that Germany had found a way to treat the Red Sea people's illness. It is the only way to save Hong Hae-in, but the surgery has the side effect of losing all memories, so we cannot just like it. However, since there was no other way to cure Hong Hae-in, Baek Hyun-woo and Hong Hae-in's father Hong Beom-jun (played by Jeong Jin-young) decided to keep it a secret for now.

Hong Hae-in, who heard from Baek Hyun-woo that a cure had been found, was stunned by the sudden good news, but was filled with joy at being able to live. Then, dreaming of a future with Baek Hyun-woo, she accepted her husband's request to cancel the divorce, and filled happy memories with her husband one by one before undergoing surgery. There was a sad look in Baek Hyun-woo's eyes as he looked at his wife who was so happy.

Accordingly, Baek Hyun-woo prepared a special event with Hong Hae-in to promise a ‘future’ daily life. To fulfill the wish of Hong Hae-in, who wanted to see the first snow as soon as possible, which he thought he would never see again, he gave his wife a romantic gift by falling artificial snow at the Queens Department Store, which was in full swing for Christmas. Baek Hyun-woo's mood was heightened after not only making the event a success but also hearing from Hong Hae-in that he was his wife's first love.

Finally, as the surgery date approached, Baek Hyun-woo and Hong Hae-in headed to Germany. Before entering the lab, Baek Hyun-woo confessed to Hong Hae-in about the side effects of the surgery that he had not been able to tell. Hong Hae-in, who was in shock after hearing the news of unexpected side effects, shook off Baek Hyun-woo's hand and eventually declared that he would not undergo surgery, making Baek Hyun-woo's heart even heavier.

However, since this surgery is the only way to save the Red Sea Man, Baek Hyun-woo said, “Don’t choose, don’t even think about it. “Just listen to me,” he earnestly asked. Episode 13 of 'Queen of Tears' came to an end as Baek Hyun-woo's sorrowful gaze, trying to endure this situation with all his might, and Hong Hae-in's despair-filled eyes clashed. Attention is being paid to what decision Hong Hae-in, who must choose between life and memory, will make, and whether Baek Hyun-woo will be able to persuade his beloved wife, Hong Hae-in.
