Queen of Tears Ending Explained

What Happened to Hong Hae In and Baek Hyun Woo?

Hong Hae In and Baek Hyun Woo went to Germany. Hong Hae In didn’t know that the surgery would cost her memories. Baek Hyun Woo couldn’t lie to her and told her about the aftereffects. Hong Hae In decided not to have the surgery. She didn’t want to lose herself and forget Baek Hyun Woo. Despite his pleading, she was firm about the decision.

After the car accident, Hong Hae In realized how sad and broken Baek Hyun Woo would be if she died. She decided to undergo surgery, and before it, wrote a diary about herself and her feelings for Baek Hyun Woo. She told Baek Hyun Woo to keep it and give it to her after the surgery.

But alas! After the surgery started, the Interpol arrested Baek Hyun Woo. He was suspected of killing Pyeon Seong Uk. When he saw Yoon Eun Seong, Baek Hyun Woo realized that he had fallen into his scheme.
Hong Hae In woke up confused, but the first thing she remembered was Baek Hyun Woo’s name.

Unfortunately, the one who was present was the villain Yoon Eun Seong. He introduced himself as her college boyfriend who parted ways but still loved each other. While Baek Hyun Woo is her ex-husband, a murder suspect, and her stalker.

Hong Hae In’s memories started to flood her dream and she often woke up with tears. She started to get curious about Baek Hyun Woo’s personality and went to investigate him. She went to the prison and was shocked to see how Baek Hyun Woo truly cared for her.

Hong Hae In returned to the company and met Secretary Na. She asked Secretary Na about how she used to be. Secretary Na only told Hong Hae In the good things. She hid the fact that Hong Hae In used to be a devil boss. 😂

Baek Hyun Woo was freed from prison after his lawyer friends and the Hongs helped him. Hong Hae In and Secretary Na spied on him. She was confused by how the Baek siblings treated each other and how amicable the Baek family was. Everything she saw was different from what Yoon Eun Seong told her.

Baek Hyun Woo returned to Queens. Hong Hae In felt awkward and tried to avoid him at the office. Later, they met again at the aquarium. Hong Hae In had arranged the date a month before her surgery. The aquarium employee had prepared a video of their wedding day and flowers for Baek Hyun Woo. There was a letter in the flowers.

It said that Hong Hae In wanted to have another wedding after she lost her memories.

Hong Hae In started to question why she would prepare all this for someone who cheated on her. Hong Hae In also noticed that there were scars on Baek Hyun Woo’s hand. She had a thought and had to confirm it. So, Hong Hae In went to see Yoon Eun Seong. She accidentally saw a video from Hong Man Dae’s spycam on Yoon Eun Seong’s tablet.

Hong Hae In’s doubt was confirmed when she noticed that there was no scar on Yoon Eung Seong’s hand. This proved that Yoon Eun Seong’s story about him becoming the hero in the car accident was a lie.

After returning to her room, Hong Hae In called Baek Hyun Woo and asked him to meet her. Then she saw a package on her table. It was the diary she wrote in Germany. The book miraculously survived the fire.

Hong Hae In read all the notes. She cried when she learned that Baek Hyun Woo was kind, easy to fool (😂), cute when he was drunk and tugged at her heartstrings when he cried. She wrote that Baek Hyun Woo is the reason why she did not want to lose her memories and why she wanted to live.

Hong Hae In left the house with her car and the tracker notified Yoon Eun Seong. Hong Hae In saw Baek Hyun Woo on the other side of the road. Baek Hyun Woo told her to stay and he would come to her. But when a bus passed, Hong Hae In disappeared. Baek Hyun Woo panicked and crossed the road, but then a car ran him over. He was taken to the hospital. At the same time, Hong Hae In woke up in a bedroom of the Hong family’s hunting ground villa.

Hong Hae In saw Yoon Eun Seong holding a rifle. He said he had to take her because he wanted to protect Hong Hae In from Baek Hyun Woo. Yoon Eun Seong was relieved to hear that Hong Hae In still did not believe in Baek Hyun Woo. Yoon Eun Seong asked Hong Hae In to leave together and get married. To please him, Hong Hae In said yes.

Despite his injuries, Baek Hyun Woo left the hospital quickly. He called Grace Ko and told her to tell Moh Seul Hee about Hong Hae In’s disappearance. Just like his prediction, Moh Seul Hee was upset and left. All Baek Hyun Woo needs to do just to follow her.

Baek Hyun Woo went to the Hong family’s hunting ground. He told Kim Yang Gi to call the police while he sneaked into the villa. Hong Hae In overheard Yoon Eun Seong and Moh Seul Hee talking about an accident 25 years ago. Hong Hae In left the villa with Baek Hyun Woo’s help. They ran, but Yoon Eun Seong found them. The fight ended with Baek Hyun Woo injured and Yoon Eun Seong dead.

After a long wait at the hospital, Baek Hyun Woo woke up and saw Hong Hae In at his side. They finally got back together in a touching scene.

Yoon Eun Seong was anxious when Hong Hae In went to see Baek Hyun Woo at the prison. He put a tracker in her car to prevent it from happening again. Meanwhile, Yoon Eun Seong faced another challenge. Baek Hyun Woo’s return and his mother’s ambition to be the chairman of Queens.

Yoon Eun Seong asked Hong Hae In to go with him to the US. He said they were abandoned by their family. But Hong Hae In didn’t believe that. Yoon Eun Seong found out that Hong Hae In left the house that night. He followed her and found out that she was going to meet Baek Hyun Woo. Jealousy kicked in. And later, Baek Hyun Woo was lying in the street, covered in blood.

Yoon Eun Seong took Hong Hae In to the villa at the hunting ground. He didn’t expect his mother would come too. Moh Seul Hee said he could leave, but Yoon Eun Seong had to leave the money and the file. Yoon Eun Seong sneered that he was good at keeping secrets.

Yoon Eun Seong talked about the boat incident that happened 25 years ago. It was Moh Seul Hee who arranged the boat accident that killed Hong Hae In’s older brother.

However, the truck incident incites Yoon Eun Sung’s fury. He threatened Moh Seul Hee with evidence of her drugging Hong Man Dae. Yoon Eun Seong told her that if she ever touched Hong Hae In again, he would put her in jail. To return the threat, Moh Seul Hee tried to get Yoon Eun Seong removed from his position as chairman.

When Hong Hae In disappeared, Moh Seul Hee felt anxious. She ordered her subordinates to move the secret money from the safe. But someone said that Yoon Eun Seong had it all converted to dollars and taken away. Moh Seul Hee went to the hunting ground to find her son. Yoon Eun Seong gave her the file of evidence but refused to hand over the money.

Moh Seul Hee took her men and looked for the money herself. They found the money and loaded it into cars. A police officer came and told her that Yoon Eun Seong died. There wasn’t much feeling left for her to grieve. Moh Seul Hee only remembered the little boy who ran to chase her taxi while shouting that he would wait for her.

Out of the morgue, Moh Seul Hee asked her lawyer to transfer Yoon Eun Seong’s share to her. She calculated how much share she could buy using the secret money. For Moh Seul Hee, becoming the Queens chairman is more important than her dead son.

The Hongs sued Moh Seul Hee for illegally acquiring her share. Moh Seul Hee blamed Yoon Eun Seong and tried to gain sympathy. But it was all for nothing when Cheo Da Hye testified against her and Hong Hae In told the judges about the accident 25 years ago and how she killed her grandfather.

Moh Seul Hee’s lawyer was shocked when Baek Hyun Woo showed the evidence, which was a copy of Yoon Eun Seong’s spycam videos. Grace Ko took the file from Yoon Eun Seong’s desk to help the Hong family.

With solid evidence, which was ironically provided by her son, Moh Seul Hee was thrown into prison. She screamed she was innocent while the police dragged her there. Moh Seul Hee lost her grandeur when her inmates beat her.
Serves you right, Miss Witch!

Hong Beom Ja finally got the love of her life after Young Song came to her and confessed his love. Now the lovebirds stay together in Yongduri.

My Two Cents

I had a bit of a sad moment when I realized that there weren’t enough kissing scenes, but I’m happy that Hong Hae In and Baek Hyun Woo finally got theirs happily ever after after overcoming so many challenges together. I bet their subordinates were the first to celebrate. They are no longer trapped in the cold war between Hong Hae In and Baek Hyun Woo. But now they have to get used to Hong Hae In and Baek Hyun Woo’s lovey-dovey encounters.

In any case, it’s time to wrap up and move on to the next show. Thank you all so much for stopping by. I truly hope this post brought as much joy to your hearts as I enjoyed writing it.
