A netizen recently posted on an online community forum about Song Hye Kyo and Lee Do Hyun‘s age difference, using photos of Song Hye Kyo from her appearance in the drama ‘Soonpoong Clinic‘ from 1998-2000.
The netizen pointed out that even as a young actress, Song Hye Kyo already looked like an adult while her co-star Kim Sung Eun, who was born in 1990, was visibly a young child. Lee Do Hyun, who was born in 1995, is even younger than Kim Sung Eun by five years.
Netizens commented on the post, with some acknowledging that there are many instances where the man is much older in a relationship, while others said that Song Hye Kyo and Lee Do Hyun still look good together.
Some also pointed out that the criticism towards their age gap is unfair, especially since male actors have been paired with much younger actresses in the past without receiving the same level of scrutiny.
Others felt that it was more their image or visuals that didn’t match rather than their age difference.
Comments from netizens:
“I don’t think their age gap is that big of a deal. It’s not like they’re 20 years apart or something.”
“I think people are just making a big deal out of nothing. They’re both adults, so what’s the problem?”
“I don’t see why their age gap matters. They’re both great actors and they have good chemistry on screen.”
“It’s unfair that Song Hye Kyo is getting criticized for this when male actors have been paired with much younger actresses without any backlash.”
“Their age difference is not a big deal. It’s more about their image or how they look together that’s the issue.”
“I think they still look good together, regardless of their age gap.”
“It’s ridiculous that people are so obsessed with their age difference. Can’t we just focus on their talent and the drama itself?”
