Queen of Tears Plot

Queen of Tears Comedy Highlights 

Hong Hae-in is a chaebol heiress, known as the ‘queen’ of Queens Group Department Stores while Baek Hyun-woo, her husband, is the legal director of the conglomerate and known as the ‘supermarket prince’. Hong Hae-in is described as a cold and calculated woman while Baek Hyun-woo is warm-hearted and emotional. 

A marriage between an influential woman and an entry-level employee is dubbed the ‘wedding of the century’ and is nothing but a facade. Belonging to two different worlds, the couple could not overcome their differences but a big crisis brings these two together. Soon, they realise that maybe being different from one another is not so bad after all.

Hyun-woo’s ‘I was born like this’ scene

In episode 1, Hyun-woo gets drunk at the local convenience store with his friend Yang-gi. He tells Yang-gi that Hae-in told him he is extremely cute when he is drunk. Seeing it as the reason why his life is in shambles, he cries his eyes out and does the famous line ‘I was born like this’ – which is a homage to Kim Ji-won’s popular character Choi Ae-ra from the drama Fight for My Way. This scene alone became popular amongst Korean and international fans! 

Hae-in tries on the ring

After rejecting Hyun-woo due to her progressing illness, she enters his room to look at the ring and try it on. Feeling all the emotions, she stares at it when Hyun-woo enters the room. She panics as he tells her that he will be giving the ring back. In that instant, she embarrassingly puts the ring back in the box in front of Hyun-woo and coolly walks away, saying she is just interested in the design of the ring – that’s all. 

He laughs at the situation and teases her, saying that he will not be giving it back and she can look at it for ‘fashion’ whenever she wants. Reliving the situation, she screams into the pillow. Seeing the scene, we love their chemistry – especially their comedic timing.

After beating up the land broker, he comes in front of Hae-in with scratches and bruises. She immediately takes him to the room for inspection. The way she confidently unbuttons his shirt to check while Hyun-woo worries overexposing his body – kept us laughing throughout the whole scene. 

Even while he was trying to convince her that he was a great boxer, she only cared about his health and told him to run away if he was outnumbered. This scene had the perfect amount of romance and hilarity. 

Hyun-woo’s jealousy

In the initial episodes when Eun-sung would get closer to Hae-in, Hyun-woo would not admit that he was feeling jealous. But one scene in particular that stands out is when Eun-sung ended up at their house and he just followed them around with stupid excuses – trying to overhear their conversation. The comedic timing of that scene just goes to show Kim Soo-hyun can portray any emotions he wants. 

Hae-in’s jealousy

After a heartbreaking scene, the Baekhong couple were back to make us laugh as well. The scene where Hyun-woo deliberately irks Hae-in by looking ‘sexy’ is hilarious. Hae-in’s jealousy over the women staring at him as well as telling him to roll down his sleeves made us laugh hard. Even Eun-sung’s appearance did not dampen the atmosphere as the couple continued to be in their world.

As the Hong family gather at Hyun-woo’s parents’ house, they reel in their disappointment over the events and try to enjoy the dinner made by Hyun-woo’s family. Soo-cheol is the most heartbroken as he lost his place as well as Da-hye and Geon-u. 

Hyun-woo’s parents try to get him to eat and drink but he shows his snobby self instead – causing Hae-in to lose her patience and slap him across the head. The cherry on the top is when Hyun-woo confirms that she does not treat him like that! 

Hyun-woo being the ‘bus guy’ 

When Hae-in and Hyun-woo began their love story again, he would always get jealous over her first love – the ‘bus guy’ not knowing that he was that guy. On many occasions, he would express his anger over Hae-in talking about her first love – which is why she decided to tell him. 

Initially, she put it subtly, which went over his head and then she tried to tell him right out that he was her first love but to no avail, Hyun-woo did not understand her. After walking away from him, he realised the truth and chased her around. This scene also signifies how they were young at heart as well.
