As Queen of Tears cements its status as the talk of the town, curiosity about its finale is surging. The tvN weekend drama has been making remarkable strides in popularity. The latest episode aired on the 24th marked an impressive viewership, scoring an average of 15.2% and peaking at 16.2% in the metropolitan area, while nationally, it averaged 14.1% and reached a high of 15.1%. Moreover, it dominated its time slot across all channels, including terrestrial networks.

With the character Hong Hae In (Kim Ji Won) facing a terminal diagnosis, speculation about a potentially sad ending had been rife. However, as these characters fall in love once again, hopes for a happy conclusion have been rekindled.

Yet, does the drama’s title hint at its inevitable conclusion? Brief moments of happiness are overshadowed by continuous tears. Traveling abroad in search of a cure proved futile, and Hong Hae In’s confrontation with divorce papers from Baek Hyun Woo (Kim Soo Hyun) drove them further apart, compounded by misunderstandings within their families.

Faced with divorce papers, Hong Hae In discards all of Baek Hyun Woo’s “lucky” four-leaf clovers. Despite initially dismissing the superstition, facing her mortality made her cling to hope. This act of throwing away the clovers, raises questions about its significance as foreshadowing in the storyline.

Speculation about the ending continues to swirl, with interpretations of the drama’s title ranging from representing the thawing of Hong Hae In’s icy heart, causing her to shed tears, to suggesting that the tears symbolize Baek Hyun Woo and the queen signifies Hong Hae In.

Furthermore, an image game conducted on tvN’s official account by Kim Soo Hyun and Kim Ji Won drew attention. When asked, “Who seems like they would make others cry?” both actors chose Kim Ji Won, hinting at parallels between the actors’ choices and their characters’ fates in the drama.

As Queen of Tears weaves a narrative that seems headed towards a tragic conclusion, viewers remain hopeful for a miraculous twist, keeping interest in the drama’s resolution alive.
