The press conference for upcoming MBC drama 'Shopping King Louie' took place on September 19, where actor Yoon Sang Hyun talked about having a love line with the much younger Nam Ji Hyun.

At the event, one audience member stated, "In real life, there's a 22-year age difference between you and Nam Ji Hyun.  The resolution to engage seems like it'd be different than normal."  Yoon Sang Hyun replied, "I don't think much about age differences when I act.  I don't think about that when acting, but if that were to happen in real life, I'd have a problem with it.  Liking a girl who came from the Gangwon-do rural area who makes [my character's] heart pitter-patter is such a fun development, which is why I had decided to take on the role."  He added that he played lacking or poor characters in past dramas, so he took this role to try a sort of Robert Downey Jr. vibe this time around!


You can watch on September 21!

    Yeah... It would be a bit weird if they have romantic scenes together... We can clearly see the age gap here.

    This is no big deal since he's just a speed bump for the main couple. I am more worried about suspension of disbelief since it's not even plausible for me to think that he'd end up with the girl.

    I am not liking this pedophile concept which is trending in Korean industry right now, its seriously getting on my nerves and I didn't watch 'doctors' because of it too.

    Do you even know what a pedophile is? A pedophile is someone who has sexual attraction to a UNDERAGE child. Nam Ji Hyun is 21 years old. She's legal to drink, drive, and smoke anywhere in the world. There's nothing pedophile about this. Maybe the age gap might be a little weird, but it's not a "pedophile concept."

    Fine not Pedophile, but this trend surely is disgusting.

    Why is it disgusting? Are people with age gaps not allowed to date and get married in real life or something? You can do whatever you want as an adult. Ashton Kutcher was 25 when he first met Demi Moore when she was 41. Hugh Jackman and his wife are 13 years apart and there's many more. If you think this is disgusting, I wonder what you're feelings are towards gays and lesbians.

    Actually if you think about it or from what i see in Kdramas most of them are noona/dongsaeng relationship. Yoo Ah In played a love interest of a much much older actress and no one complained so i dont see the problem here.

    Exactly. And plus, it's just a drama. Like who cares, you know? There's also plenty of people all over the world who date and get married with big age gaps in real life and no one seems to be complaining about that as well.

    I am not saying that age gaps are not allowed, my point is 'the trending' is not good for the young girls (and also for boys) minds. The relations like your father's friend or your Mother's friend or a distant relative who is older or a family friend or an older neighbor and SPECIALLY your teachers. These all relations are based on respect and clean minds.If they will encourage young minds like that who can't differentiate between attraction/infatuation or love, it really can ruin the society.I am not against age gap relationships but you have to admit that they are a little sensitive than normal relationships which I will again repeat difficult to understand for the hormonal teenagers. Believe me I am that kind of person who believes in fate and true love can come from anywhere but when age gap love happens in real life it brings its own destiny, if they are made for each other fate will definitely do it's part and you and me or any other person but God can stop it. but taking our young ones through the right path is also our responsibility. 1 or 2 dramas of age gap is ok in 10 dramas infact its healthy, so children learn to be broad minded about difference. I am sorry if my words were harsh but I don't agree with Kdrama industry for taking this topic easy. they are responsible for what they feed to the society.

    Yea and not to mention many of them are happily dating/married so age isnt what people should worry about. Personally i wouldn't go for a much much older man or younger but thats just me i shouldn't be concerned about people's desire, and you know how some people are so ridiculous
