Queen family did not get into a fight with the grandfather's mistress. Instead, they set a trap for the lady and her son. Under the guidelines of Hyun Woo, Hae In, and her aunt increased Yoon Eun Sung's anxiety about the return of Hong Beom Seok to take over the company. Unknowingly, Eun Sung started spending his money on buying small stocks to strengthen his presence in the Queen Group.

The Funeral Rehearsal

Hae In keenly observed the procedures while she attended Mr. Hyun's funeral. The female lead considered it as a rehearsal because the three-month time given to her was already over.

Reviews and Reactions

While watching this episode, I realized how much Soo Hyun grew as an actor. He showed such exceptional acting in this scene. He is already a master of this restrained way of expressing sadness, but this is another level.

Hands down to Kim Soo Hyun's incredible acting in this whole epilogue. It made us all cry again. No one could play Baek Hyun Woo better than the way he did.

One of the character developments that we have been waiting for was featured in episode 13. They learned each other's feelings. Hyun Woo knew something was wrong and followed Hae In to find her crying. He listened and comforted her while she expressed herself to him.

I love how they defined and expressed all forms of love in the utmost way possible through Strong communication, valuing time to express oneself, and learning to give and understand each other. Queen of Tears is just THAT drama.
