Kim Soo Hyun’s direct participation in singing an OST is the first time in 10 years since the release of the OST “If I..” of SBS’s drama “My Love from the Star” on February 29th, 2014, followed by “Promise” released on March 13th of the same year.

Therefore, there is anticipation for the new voice and emotion that Kim Soo Hyun will bring through the OST of “Queen of Tears”.

Meanwhile, “Queen of Tears” depicts the dizzying crisis and miraculous rekindling of love between Hong Hae In (Kim Ji Won), a third-generation chaebol heiress of Queens Group, and Baek Hyun Woo (Kim Soo Hyun), the son of farmers from Yongdu-ri, and their three years of marriage.
