Well, I guess this might only fit for the elderidols/actors since nowadays rookies start when barely out of preschool. Sad for them because they don´t get the chance to make "normal" experiences. Having the chance to be an Idol is fantastic, no doubt, but still they miss a lot and have to give up  lot. I have slightly mixed feelings if it´s really a good thing to grow up under the eyes of a whole nation / fandom. My two cents for today ;-)

That's how I feel about our Olympic athletes. Like the gymnasts and such. They start tumbling when they're like 2. Old enough to walk? You're old enough to train. Then by their late teens, they've got gold medals, national recognition, but their joints are shot.

Compared to girl groups where some of the members are only 17, you can call especially all those actors over 35 of course elder, since they are double their age. The youngest in this list is Soyu with 25, and Leo with 26. Then there are Kim Min Suk and Janghyun with 27. The rest on this list is 30 and elder, up to 46 ( Lee Young Ae and Ma Dong Seok). Vernon from Seventeen appeared in Hello Venus´MV when he was only 14. So he never had a chance to have a job or a normal life. This is what I wanted to say. Ma Dong Seok on the other hand started filming when he was already 33. Maybe now you see the difference between "back then" and "nowadays".

Honey, a 5, 10 or even 15 year age difference from a 17 year old does NOT make said person 'elderly'. You really fail to understand the meaning of the word. What you want is 'older' as in older generation etc. YOU are misusing the language LOL NONE of these people are anywhere close to elderly :D

Naruta teleri Thursday, April 13, 2017

The only one using "elderly" was you. I wrote "elder" which only means that they are Seniors to the new Idols. Nothing more, nothing less. I might not be perfect in using the language, but you have severe reading difficulties, kiddo.

teleri Naruta Friday, April 14, 2017

Uh, NOOOOO. Go back up there to read - I REACTED to YOUR comment, dear. If the word 'elderly' hadn't been in the post, I would not have said a thing.

Mehrvigne teleri Friday, April 14, 2017

Elderly is the adverb form of "elder" meaning anyone older than you. It could be one year, it could be 50+ years. So the use of elder is in the correct form. It's all good.

Naruta teleri Friday, April 14, 2017

At l now I know for sure that you HAVE reading difficulties. Maybe you should follow your own advice and go back up there to read. "... only fit for the elderidols/actors ..." I made a typo by writing "elder" and "idol" in one word (which happened accidentally due to my silly phone sometimes hanging). Obviously this confused you. But I'll forgive you anyway *lol*

Naruta Mehrvigne Friday, April 14, 2017

Thank you for your explanation. But still, the word "elderly" doesn't appear in my comments.....

teleri Mehrvigne Friday, April 14, 2017

Okay, girls. My reading comprehension is far and away better than most people (have the credentials to prove it). I see your explanation but 'elder' still has connotations of being aged, and the correct word here would have been 'senior'.

I love how everyone gets a sentence or two of explanations but then there's "Kim Nam Joo - Seoul Village Office Employee".
