K-Celebrities Turning 40 in 2023

With just over two months remaining in 2022, people have already begun preparations for the new year. A new year is always exciting, but what's even more exciting is that it's a new age, and it's even more special because some people will be hitting a new decade in their life! Last week, we were able to check out celebrities turning 30 in 2023, but this time -- we're going to take it one step further and check out stars hitting 40 next year!

This is just a reminder that Korean age works a little differently and that people automatically become one year older once the calendar hits January 1. However, the rule for this "Korean age" is set to be abolished soon due to too much confusion and inconsistency.

So, let's check out some stars who were born in 1984, and you'll find it surprising that some stars will be hitting the big 40 in Korean age!

Yoo In Young

Kim Joon

Gong Hyun Joo

Park Eun Seok

So Yi Hyun

Yoon Jong Hoon

Seo In Young

Simon Dominic

Han Ji Hye

Min Kyung Hoon

2NE1 Park Bom

Yoo Yeon Seok

Lee Je Hoon

Nam Sang Mi

Super Junior Yesung

Yoon Eun Hye

Kim Yong Joon

Goo Hye Sun


Lee Yoon Ji

Ji Hyun Woo

Seo Ji Hye


Park Han Byul

Kim Jimin

Examining this list, it looks like most of these stars are actors or OG idol stars. It's hard to believe that these stars are turning 40, but this also means that most of these stars have been in the industry for nearly twenty years... if not more! All we can say is they don't look a day over 30, and their careers are still shining bright like a diamond!

While aging is a bittersweet moment, it's an opportunity for them to show more mature sides of themselves, and we're excited to see what they will present to us in 2023! What are your thoughts on this list? Are you surprised that any of these stars are turning 40? Did we possibly miss one? Make sure to let us know in the comments below!

Oh wow... 😮 I've never looked up Simon Dominic's age before. Reading now that he's nearly 40 is kinda shocking. I always though that he's in his late 20s or very early 30s at best. Damn.

IT'S DAMNED UNBELIVEABLE that Yesung is 40! He looks 20, at best, and this is coming from a straight boy. Damn, this boy is beautiful
