Queen of Tears Episode 4 Recap

Episode 4 continues with their kiss from episode 3 and while Hyun-woo remains surprised at Hae-in’s actions, the latter feels embarrassed later on. Hyun-woo tries to get her phone by conversing with her but she goes into her room. As she takes a shower, he enters her room and takes her phone. He is unable to use the right password but the number ‘1031’ gets him access. Shocked at the revelation, he shakes it off and deletes the message. 

Hyun-woo is seen reminiscing the memory attached to ‘1031’. Turns out, a couple of years ago, they were expecting a baby and the delivery date was October 31st. They were excited to welcome the baby and went all out for it. But cut to the present, the room is now occupied by Hyun-woo and the only remnant of the memory is the one glow-in-the-dark star sticker in the room. This also shows that they lost the child and it is one of the reasons behind their cold behaviour towards each other. 

The next day, Hyun-woo begins feeling differently about Hae-in and even gets his heart racing while being close to her or seeing her dressed up but he remains in denial. Yoon Eun-sung comes into the picture, creating a green monster inside Hyun-woo as the former spends time with Hae-in. While Hae-in is unbeknownst to his intentions, Hyun-woo feels that he is creepy and that something isn’t right about him.  

Later, Hyun-woo’s father gets to know that he may be losing the village elections because of his rival. Saddened by his odds, Hyun-woo’s sister texts Hae-in about the situation, hoping she will arrive to help and she does! Like a star, she enters the village centre with rows of trucks, loaded with gifts. Stunned at her beauty, grace and ability, the Baek family feel happy at her gesture. 

Hyun-woo is told by his mother about Hae-in’s grand gesture and he goes to his hometown to see what she is up to. She ends up getting lost in the village and Hyun-woo looks for her. Upon finding her, they have an emotional conversation and share a warm embrace.
