  • Some reports note that Kim’s performance in “Queen of Tears” appeared to be a subtle homage and reference to his co-star, Kim Ji-won, and her cute scenes in the 2017 series “Fight for My Way.” In “Queen of Tears,” Kim Ji-won plays Hyun-woo’s wife, Hong Hae-in.
  • Kim, who was nominated at the awards show for Best Leading TV Actor for his role, took home the PRIZM Popularity Award. IVE member Ahn Yujin also received the award, which is given to celebrities receiving the most votes from fans.

The 2024 TV show earned a 24.85% rating across South Korea, compared to the 2019 TV series’ 21.7% rating on tvN.
