As “Queen of Tears” is still one of the hottest topics on multiple media platforms, a Korean fan researched and found out that the “Queen of Tears” title was registered for copyright as early as 2010.

Netizens speculated that the script must have been in the works for over a decade already, that’s why it feels like an older K-drama that viewers enjoyed.

However, others did not believe that the “Queen of Tears” registered for copyright in 2010 was the same title viewers watched this 2024.

A fan decoded the information found online, according to the source, the 2010 K-drama “Queen of Reversals,” starring Kim Nam Joo, Jung Joon Ho, Park Si Hoo, and Chae Jung An, was initially titled “Queen of Tears,” which was also penned by Park Ji Eun.

Amazon described “Queen of Reversals” as the sequel to the series “Queen of Housewives,” which starred Kim Nam Joo as the careerwoman who once had everything, and Jung Joon Ho as her unlucky husband.

The year before, 2009, Park Ji Eun and veteran actress Kim Nam Joo worked in the series “Queen of Housewives.” It is a rom-com drama that follows the life of housewives who devote their entire lives to their husbands’ successes but with a more comedic twist.

Hence, after the fans’ research, the speculated registered copyright for the drama titled “Queen of Tears,” was different from the drama of the same title that just aired this 2024.

Some claimed that Park Ji Eun likely had copyrighted a multiple of K-dramas with “Queen of” titles.
