EXO‘s Sehun, one of the members of the popular K-pop boy group, has returned to the small screen through the OTT K-drama “All That We Loved”.
However, some netizens are expressing their dissatisfaction over Sehun‘s appearance in the show, specifically his age.
In the drama, Sehun portrays an 18-year-old high school student named Go Yoo, who is a basketball genius but is forced to confront the consequences of his decision to donate his kidney to his best friend.
While the theme of the show has received praise, some viewers have criticized Sehun‘s casting, arguing that he looks too old for the role.
There are contrasting views on this matter. Some people have come to Sehun‘s defense, highlighting that it is not uncommon for actors to play student roles even in their 30s.
They also believe that the criticisms are due to Sehun‘s status as an idol. On the other hand, some argue that the age gap between Sehun and his co-stars is too noticeable, making the casting feel awkward.
Comments from netizens on various forums and social media platforms further highlight the divided opinions on Sehun‘s appearance in the show.
Some netizens believe that Sehun is too old to play a high school student, while others argue that his age is not a hindrance to his acting skills.
Here are some of the comments from netizens:
“I love Sehun, but I agree that he looks too old for the role. They could have cast someone younger and more fitting for the character’s age.”
“It’s not Sehun’s fault that he looks mature for his age. He’s still a great actor, and I’m excited to see him in this drama.”
“Sehun is not the only actor who has played a student role despite being in their late 20s or early 30s. People should stop criticizing him just because he’s an idol.”
“I don’t think Sehun is suitable for this role. He looks too old and it makes the age gap between him and his co-stars more apparent.”
“I don’t care about Sehun’s age as long as he can act well. I’m looking forward to watching him in this drama.”
“It’s unfair to criticize Sehun for his age when other actors have played similar roles. He deserves a chance to show his acting skills.”
