In a quick update, the massively popular Korean drama Queen of Tears is still ranking high up the Netflix Top 10 Non-English TV Shows chart this week.

It is the 6th week the Korean rom-com has been on the chart.

A chart it climbed on just a couple of days after its first episode premiered on the streaming platform, and one it hasn’t left since.

This week, Queen of Tears is ranking #3 on the chart, behind the new German crime drama Crooks at #2, and the still at #1 Korean sci-fi horror series Parasyte: The Grey.

The K-drama has fallen one place since it placed at #2 last week, but that’s to be expected as new shows release and Netflix subscribers become curious about what they’re like.

Queen of Tears made it to #3 on the chart, by the way, as it was still watched 4.4 million times last week, for a total number of hours viewed worldwide of 64.8 million.

Other accolades for Queen of Tears

Meanwhile, the Korean rom-com, which stars Kim Soo Hyun, Kim Ji Won, and Park Sung Hoon, has also recently become the 5th highest-rated cable TV drama of all-time in South Korea.

It is also the second most-watched tvN drama of all-time, behind Crash Landing on You.

And, if that wasn’t enough, the drama’s male lead Kim Soo Hyu was just named #1 on the Brand Reputation Rankings for Drama Actors for April, 2024, while his co-star Kim Ji Won was at #4.

Watch the hit Korean drama Queen of Tears on Netflix now to see what all the fuss is about as, let’s face it, its audience share is only growing by the week, and with the K-drama likely surpassing Crash Landing on You by the time its done.
