Queen of Tears maintains consistent television ratings

Queen of Tears has previously surpassed iconic K-drama series like Ryu Jun Yeol and Hyeri’s Reply 1988 and Gong Yoo starrer Goblin in terms of television ratings as recorded by Nielsen Korea. Furthermore, with the release of their latest episode on April 21, 2024, they were approximately 0.2 points short of reaching the same ratings as the smash hit, Crash Landing On You. 



The show has been achieving major milestones ever since its premiere and also maintained a two-digit rating for the past few episodes being released. It is expected that the series will record the highest rating in tvN’s history for the finale episodes. Furthermore, it has consistently topped the list on Netflix for the most-watched non-English TV show category.
