"Isn't Kim Soo-hyun just the best?"... Park Ji-eun's pick with solid reason, the 'Queen of Tears' [Oh! Strong Letter]

Queen of Tears

[OSEN=Reporter Sun Mi-kyung] Once again, Kim Soo-hyun has us all amazed.

Kim Soo-hyun has once again taken flight in the world of romantic comedy. Partnering up with writer Park Ji-eun for the third time, he's been delighting weekend viewers with his charm week after week. Not only has he grabbed attention with rising ratings and buzz, but his presence is also shining brighter than ever.

These days, Kim Soo-hyun is captivating audiences in tvN's weekend drama "Queen of Tears" (written by Park Ji-eun, directed by Jang Young-woo and Kim Hee-won). Playing the role of Baek Hyun-woo, the son of a wealthy family who manages a supermarket, Kim Soo-hyun effortlessly showcases all his charms.

In the drama, Kim Soo-hyun's character, Baek Hyun-woo, is a lawyer who graduated from Seoul National University Law School. With his sharp wit and a visual appeal even more dazzling than that of a typical heir, he works as the legal advisor for the Queens Group. Falling in love with the daughter of the Queens Group, Hong Hae-in (played by Kim Ji-won), he enters the world of the conglomerate through marriage. However, after three years of marriage, he finds himself seeking a divorce. But when his wife, Hong Hae-in, receives a terminal diagnosis, he realizes the love he had been neglecting.

Kim Soo-hyun absolutely nailed the character of Baek Hyun-woo. He swoops in just at the right time to save Hong Hae-in when she's in trouble, bickers with her while shielding her from the rain instead of his wife. He gets all jealous and tense with the secretive appearance of Yoon Eun-seong (played by Park Seong-hoon), but also struggles to save the failing Queens Group. He's like the typical prince charming who appears at the right moment to save the heroine from every crisis. And Kim Soo-hyun fits perfectly into Baek Hyun-woo like he's tailor-made for the role.

But being just a cool prince wasn't all. Just like Cheon Song-yi (played by Jun Ji-hyun) in "My Love from the Star," in "Queen of Tears," Baek Hyun-woo also takes on comedic roles. From drunken crying scenes in the first episode to childish jealousy and rediscovering love for Hong Hae-in, he adds cuteness and loveliness. Kim Soo-hyun is cool when he needs to be, and convincingly broken when the character falls apart, completing Baek Hyun-woo's story with captivating performance.

Kim Soo-hyun faced some awkward situations recently, like rumors of high appearance fees or dating rumors sparked by actor Kim Saeron's late-night "two-shot" selfie, but he's dispelling all those rumors with his acting prowess.

The chemistry between Kim Ji-won, portraying the counterpart character Hong Hae-in, and Kim Soo-hyun is undeniable, naturally driving an upward trend. While the debut episode aired on the 9th of last month recorded a rating of 5.9% (according to Nielsen Korea), it steadily climbed with each subsequent episode, peaking at 19%. With the romantic storyline gaining momentum, it seems only a matter of time before "Queen of Tears" claims the top spot among tvN's historical dramas.

"Queen of Tears," marking the third collaboration between writer Park Ji-eun, known for her work on "My Love from the Star" and "Producer," and Kim Soo-hyun, attracted significant attention even before its premiere. Kim Soo-hyun's popularity among global fans, earned through "My Love from the Star," catapulted him to the top tier of actors, with accolades for his performance in "Producer." Having shared the limelight with writer Park Ji-eun on two previous occasions and considering the success of her prior work "Crash Landing on You," which topped tvN's historical drama ratings, expectations for "Queen of Tears" were higher than any other production.

Once again, Kim Soo-hyun shows that Park Ji-eun, the writer who's picked him three times, really knows talent when she sees it. Park Ji-eun gave him a role that fits him like a glove, and Kim Soo-hyun brought the character to life with his amazing acting skills. He's showing his gratitude to Park Ji-eun, who once said, "Isn't Kim Soo-hyun the best?" by delivering a stellar performance.
