As the final episodes of the immensely popular drama “Queen of Tears” concluded, fans were left with a bitter aftertaste when the production team unveiled previously hidden kiss scenes between lead actors Kim Soo-hyun and Kim Ji-won.

What was meant to be a joyous celebration of the series’ success turned into a controversy as viewers expressed their frustration over the delayed revelation.

The special episodes, aired on May 4th and 5th following the drama’s finale on April 28th, served as a platform for the production team to showcase additional footage.

However, it was the inclusion of intimate moments between Baek Hyun-woo and Hong Hae-in, portrayed by Kim Soo-hyun and Kim Ji-won respectively, that ignited a firestorm of criticism.

Throughout the series, fans had eagerly anticipated deeper displays of affection between the main characters, particularly as their romance reached pivotal moments.

Yet, the absence of passionate kiss scenes became a sore point for many viewers, leading to disappointment even as the drama wrapped up with a happy ending featuring the birth of Baek Hyun-woo and Hong Hae-in’s daughter.

In a surprising turn of events, the production team chose to unveil these previously concealed moments in the special episodes, labeling them as “exclusively” available for viewing.

Scenes depicting the couple’s honeymoon in Germany showcased tender and passionate exchanges that had been conspicuously absent from the original broadcast.

This belated revelation left fans feeling betrayed and questioning the motives behind withholding such integral moments until after the drama’s conclusion.

Many took to social media to express their frustration, stating that had these scenes been revealed earlier, they could have sparked more discussion and potentially boosted the drama’s ratings even further.

Here’s what fans are saying:

  • ‘They have tons of kissing scene but they only lasted less than 5 second”
  • ‘They have robbed us so many good scene what will tvn do with the kissing scenes just give us’
  • ‘hahaha!!! were robbed’
  • ‘i can’t believe they delete this scene from the whole series, they really have been scamming us at this rate’
  • ‘That car scene I want to see….. there is even a kiss in there….. get it back pleaseeeeee’
  • ‘SO WHAT WAS THE REASON DOING  ALL THESE KISSING SCENES, TO ONLY SHOW 0.001 SECOND OF IT????’
  • ‘Really robbed!’
  • ‘its the way i love love love their fits here and wdym they actually kissed?!!!! TVN’
  • ‘WHY TVN JUST WHY’

While “Queen of Tears” enjoyed a successful 390-day run, the controversy surrounding the hidden kiss scenes threatens to overshadow its achievements.

The production team now faces the daunting task of addressing fans’ disappointment and rebuilding trust within the dedicated audience who had invested their time and emotions into the series.
