The drama Queen of Tears, starring Kim Soo Hyun and Kim Ji Won, continues to captivate audiences even after its finale.

On May 27th, Gallup Korea announced the rankings for this month’s most-loved TV programs among Koreans. From May 21st to 23rd, 1,001 Koreans aged 18 and over were asked to name up to two of their current favorite shows. Topping the list was tvN’s Queen of Tears.

First airing in March and concluding on April 28th, the 16-episode series has now held the number one spot for three consecutive months—a first in the rankings. In April, Queen of Tears achieved a preference rating of 13.1%, one of only 11 dramas to surpass the 10% mark since Gallup Korea began the survey in January 2013.

Queen of Tears concluded with a peak rating of 24.9% nationwide, according to Nielsen Korea, setting a record as the highest-rated drama in tvN’s history. The show also maintained the top spot in drama buzz for eight consecutive weeks, set records for TVING’s viewing time and daily user count, and achieved the highest viewership among simultaneously aired Netflix dramas.

Following in second place was KBS2’s Beauty and Mr. Romantic, which climbed from eighth place in April. MBC’s I Live Alone secured third place, while tvN’s Lovely Runner landed fourth, particularly popular among women aged 18 to 29. Other shows making the top ten included KBS1’s Suji & Uri, tvN’s You Quiz on the Block, SBS’s Running Man, MBC’s Cheif Detective 1958, JTBC’s A Clean Sweep, and SBS’s My Little Old Boy.
