High expectations for epic romance: Previewing TvN’s “Queen of Tears” starring Kim Soo-hyun and Kim Ji-won

High expectations for epic romance: Previewing TvN’s “Queen of Tears” starring Kim Soo-hyun and Kim Ji-won.

This spring, viewers can expect an epic romance that will make their hearts flutter. It’s the highly anticipated cable channel tvN’s new weekend drama “Queen of Tears,” which marks the return of writer Park Ji-eun and features the meeting of actors Kim Soo-hyun and Kim Ji-won. The combination of these two alone is already raising expectations for a legendary romance.

Scheduled to premiere on the 9th at 9:10 PM (KST), “Queen of Tears” tells the story of Hong Hae-in (played by Kim Ji-won), the heiress of a conglomerate and queen of the department store, and Baek Hyun-woo (played by Kim Soo-hyun), the son of a local market’s leader and the heir to the supermarket throne.

It’s a story of the tantalizing crisis and miraculous rekindling of love between a couple in their third year of marriage. From Park Ji-eun’s return work to the romance chemistry between Kim Soo-hyun and Kim Ji-won, tuning in to the broadcast is considered a must.

“Queen of Tears” marks Park Ji-eun’s return to drama after four years, following her previous successes with “Second to Last Love,” “My Love from the Star,” “The Producers,” and “Crash Landing on You.”

Especially after portraying the tender and lovely romance between Hyun Bin and Son Ye-jin in her previous work “Crash Landing on You,” there are high expectations for Park Ji-eun to once again showcase her talent in “Queen of Tears.”

Park Ji-eun is considered a “trusted” writer among viewers, known for her solid storytelling skills. She is praised for her ability to delicately balance humor and seriousness, tenderness and sweetness, and sometimes even childishness in her romantic dramas.

Having demonstrated the essence of romance in blockbuster works like “My Love from the Star” and “Crash Landing on You,” it is anticipated that “Queen of Tears” will once again satisfy viewers’ desires through Park Ji-eun’s writing.

The directing team, who collaborates with Park Ji-eun, is also solid. Director Jang Young-woo, who depicted a sad yet affectionate romance in the drama “Bulgalsal: Immortal Souls,” and Director Kim Hee-won, who contributed to the success of “The Crowned Clown,” “Vincenzo,” and “Little Women,” have joined forces. Given their history of eliciting a strong response with their emotionally charged direction, their collaboration is highly anticipated.

Furthermore, there is great anticipation for the third collaboration between Park Ji-eun and Kim Soo-hyun. Kim Soo-hyun rose to stardom in 2013 through his first collaboration with Park Ji-eun in “My Love from the Star.” The drama achieved a record-breaking viewership of over 28% and became immensely popular at the time. Kim Soo-hyun received widespread acclaim, leading to him winning the Grand Prize at the KBS Drama Awards that year.

With “Queen of Tears” being their third reunion, after “My Love from the Star” and “Producer,” they are expected to surpass the glory of their previous works. As Park Ji-eun knows Kim Soo-hyun’s charms better than anyone else after working together multiple times, it is expected that she will bring out his maximum appeal.

Moreover, the chemistry between Kim Soo-hyun and Kim Ji-won, especially in the romantic comedy genre, is one of the elements that viewers are eagerly anticipating even before the first broadcast. They have already teased a perfect rom-com chemistry through teaser videos and other promotional materials.

Along with the stable acting skills of Kim Soo-hyun and Kim Ji-won, the transformation of their characters’ visuals will also heighten expectations for their synergy. Furthermore, as they portray a couple who have lived together for three years, viewers can anticipate seeing new sides of them.

With the powerful combination of Kim Soo-hyun, Kim Ji-won, and Park Ji-eun, “Queen of Tears” is expected to meet the heightened expectations of viewers who trust the actors and production team.
