Queen of Tears Plot 

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.

Queen of Tears Episode 10 Recap 

We move back to the ending scene of the previous episode where Hae-in comes across Eun-sung. He tells her that he knows about her condition but to know how to help her live, he needs to be her guardian. He threatens her to come back to Queens Group and live with him or he will tell her parents about her condition. He gives her two days to make her decision when Soo-cheol sees him and goes to fight him but he falls to the floor instead.

He asks him about Da-hye but Eun-sung just smirks at him and walks away. Hae-in, Soo-cheol and Hyun-woo’s brother walk back home and Hae-in tells Soo-cheol not to talk about the interaction. While Soo-cheol protests, her scary gaze shuts him up.

Hyun-woo finally reaches home and Hae-in sees his beat-up state. She takes him to the room and demands to see all his injuries. She hilariously takes off his shirt while Hyun-woo gets nervous. She asks him about his injured state and he tells her about the broker. She asks him to promise that he will run away next time but he does not make that promise. She threatens him that if he gets beaten up again, she will be the one to kill him. 

The next day, Soo-cheol tries to tell Hyun-woo about Eun-sung but Hae-in walks in to stop him. Hyun-woo and Hae-in spend some together and talk about the ‘what ifs’ like what if they worked on the wounds they received during the marriage and would it change them? To that, Hae-in tells him that it would have been better if they never got married and broke off earlier. That way, Hyun-woo would be able to meet someone better. Hyun-woo immediately disagreed with that and told her that he would always look out for her and live in regret. He also expresses his regrets about how he handled their marriage, leaving them feeling intense emotions. 

In the next scene, Hyun-woo finds out that he has been reassigned due to malpractice. Eun-sung meets him and tells him about his meeting with Hae-in, making Hyun-woo feel jealous. But Hyun-woo hits back with his encounter with the broker – cracking Eun-sung’s cool facade. 

Grace Goh meets with Sol-hee when the latter tells her that she will fulfil all her demands if she can find the Chairman without Eunsung knowing. Lured by the money, she gets to it immediately but gets caught by Hyun-woo, his friend and Beom-ja. They threaten her with her illegal activities, bucking Grace Goh to her place. They begin looking for the Chairman, making sure Grace Goh keeps her mouth shut. 

In the night, the fathers bond over losing their kingdoms – Hyun-woo’s father as a village head and Hae-in’s father with the Queens Group. They drink and watch a drama that has chaebols. Hyun-woo’s father learns about the rich person’s life and how they have many people around them to remain in their top condition. Hae-in finds out about Hyun-woo’s condition at work and calls Eun-sung. He snarkily tells her that he will go to any lengths to get what he wants. She seemingly decides at that moment.

The estranged couple meet in the night and Hyun-woo expresses his frustration over Eun-sung’s demands as well as Hae-in’s compliance. He tries to make her understand but she coldly draws a line between them – making him feel bad. The next day, Hyun-woo’s mother overhears Hae-in’s conversation regarding her treatment and immediately asks Hyun-woo. 

He emotionally explains everything to her and requests her to take care of Hae-in even when he is not around. He also tells her his initial reaction, making her mad at his behaviour. Regretting his actions, he cries in front of her while she feels bad for Hae-in. She cooks up a feast for Hae-in and makes sure Hae-in eats. Later, Hae-in leaves for Seoul when her mother stops her and accuses her of looking out for herself. Feeling hurt, she resigns to indifference but Hyun-woo’s mother comes in time and drops her off to get a taxi in her tractor. 

Hyun-woo finds out about Hae-in’s decision through her assistant and runs to find her. Hae-in dresses up for a press conference and she tells Eun-sung that she is doing what she needs to do so he must keep his promise. 

Hyun-woo catches up to them and Hae-in keeps a stoic expression, telling him coldly that she is making her own decisions and she no longer needs his help. Frustrated at Hae-in’s demands and Eun-sung’s smug expression, Hyun-woo is rendered speechless. Before the conference, an individual briefs them about the announcements – Hae-in’s return and their marriage announcement.

They come in front of a dozen reporters and Eun-sung begins with a cocky speech about being long-time friends with Hae-in as well as his plan for Queens Group. Hyun-woo listens on with tears in his eyes as Hae-in agrees with Eun-sung. Just as Hyun-woo leaves dejectedly, Hae-in changes her posture and reveals the threats made to her and Hyun-woo by Eun-sung. 

Shocked at her move, Eun-sung tries to stop her but she continues. She also reveals her medical condition, sighting as a reason for her not to return as Queens Department Stores’ CEO. Eun-sung remains slack-jawed as Hyun-woo and Hae-in share a silent emotional moment.
