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 9 Recap 

The episode starts with the Hong family heading to their house when they find multiple people protesting. Scared to enter their home, they go via the back entrance, as suggested by Grace Goh. Setting a trap for them with the hidden photographers, Grace Goh lures them and takes away their cars and house. She behaves rudely with them and before the photographers can take any pictures, Hyun-woo rushes in a van to rescue them. 

The family heads to Hyun-woo’s hometown with a little protest but Hyun-woo’s priority remains with protecting Hae-in and her family. We move back to the scene where both families meet. The fathers awkwardly greet each other while Hae-in’s mother protests to go back but steps into cow dung. Surprised at the situation, she almost falls but Hyun-woo’s mother saves her. Feeling embarrassed at the situation, they thank Hyun-woo’s family for opening their doors to them.

Hyun-woo and Hae-in talk about their situation and the latter feels uncomfortable about being indebted to her ex-husband. Feeling hurt by her statement, Hyun-woo shakes it off and tells her that he will be selfish till she is better and can handle things on her own. Their conversation feels cold but one can see the immense love they have for each other. 

The families’ interaction is humorous as Hae-in’s family feels out of place in Hyun-woo’s quiet, rustic home. Tensions rise during a meal, leading to Hae-in hitting Soo-cheol for acting like a brat. Soo-cheol expresses frustration to Hyun-woo over Da-hye and Eun-sung’s betrayal. Meanwhile, Sol-hee and Eun-sung argue about their future in the Hong house, with Eun-sung announcing a similar choice to what Sol-hee made in the past.

Hae-in listens to the songs on the pink MP3 player when she notices that the songs are all her favourites. Right then, Hyun-woo texts her and they share a short but sweet conversation. She asks about the MP3 player and he tells her how he found it. She soon understands that the MP3 player is hers and she feels giddy at the thought of them being fated to love. 

She asks about the owner of the MP3 and Hyun-woo mistakes it as a question laced with jealousy so he feigns that he does not remember the person or the incident well. Feeling sad that he does not remember her, she goes to sleep without replying to him. In the morning, he enters the room to shut the drapes when he notices her sleeping. They share a sweet moment before he leaves for work.

Hae-in wakes up and asks Hyun-woo’s mother if she needs help. His mother tells her to cut the carrot but she is unable to so she shows her. Impressed with her skills, she compliments her ex-mother-in-law, eliciting laughter. Hae-in’s mother enters then and sees the scene unfold. Feeling jealous and unable to accept it, she walks out. 

Hyun-woo meets Eun-sung at the Queens Group building and tries to act nice, but Eun-sung sees through it. Hyun-woo needs a month before leaving, and Eun-sung allows it. Grace Goh tries to share her future plans with Sol-hee, but Sol-hee dismisses her. Eun-sung tells Grace to leave the country, crushing her dreams.

Hyun-woo finds the person with the hunting incident video and gets a copy of it. It turns out Da-hye caused the incident. Soo-cheol reads Da-hye’s letter and learns about her lies and the fact that Geon-u is not his son. Heartbroken, Soo-cheol cries, and Hae-in tries to comfort him but decides not to.

The fathers get together to drink and Hae-in’s father gets drunk. Hyun-woo’s father takes him back when the latter talks about his worries and how he feels like he has wronged his family. In another scene, Hae-in talks to Hyun-woo’s nephew and once he leaves, she finds herself in yet another illusion. She wakes up in Hyun-woo’s house with everyone surrounding her. 

Beom-ja shows concern by asking about medication when the family inquires about her medical condition. She advises Hae-in’s mother to take care of herself, but she remains stubborn. Hyun-woo shares his findings with Hae-in and supports her decision to handle things on her own.
