One netizen puts into perspective 'The Glory' costars Song Hye Kyo & Lee Do Hyun's age gap


One netizen put into perspective 'The Glory' costars Song Hye Kyo and Lee Do Hyun's age gap.

On March 12 KST, one netizen took to an online community forum to create a post titled, "Putting Song Hye Kyo and Lee Do Hyun's couple age gap into perspective". Here, the netizen included photos of Song Hyo Kyo from her appearance in the drama 'Soonpoong Clinic' from back in 1998-2000. In the photos, Song Hye Kyo was seen side by side the then-child actress Kim Sung Eun, who played the iconic role of Mi Dal. The netizen pointed out that Song Hye Kyo already looked like an adult during this time while Kim Sung Eun, who was born in 1990, was visibly a very young child. 

Lee Do Hyun, who stars in the Netflix original series 'The Glory' alongside Song Hye Kyo, is even younger than actress Kim Sung Eun by five years, as he was born in 1995. The fact that Kim Sung Eun, who is five years older than Lee Do Hyun, had looked like a baby next to a much older looking Song Hye Kyo, the age gap between Lee Do Hyun and Song Hye Kyo was made more obvious.

Netizens commented:

"But there are so many more instances where the man is so much older Loll."

"I think they still look good together."

"Ha Jung Woo starred in the film 'Ashfall' as a couple with Suzy, but why doesn’t anyone say negative things about him? Leave Song Hye Kyo alone."

"Instead of their age gap, I feel like it's more their image or visuals that were just different."

"I think it's just their image that looks too different."

"They're supposed to be two years apart in the drama TT It's kind of too much that Song Hye Kyo is the hoobae."

"I think it's just their visuals that didn't match. I don't think it's their age gap.”

tbh I agree with the second comment they don't have a problem when male lead is older 🙄 but always has a problem when female is older is this misogyny?and they romanticised when gonyoo was 36 and Kim goeun was 25 they had 11 years age gap but they called it ahjushi romance be fr ?🤔 stop being hypocrite if you age hate gaps hate them equally not just older females 😤 you should hate older male leads too no but you swoon over them and them ahjushiii.🙄🌚

Lee Seo Jin was 17 years older than Uee in Marriage Contract, and Lee Sun Kyun was 18 years older than IU in My Mister. Ideally, large age differences (regardless of gender) would become rarer as time passes, but, as long as it's socially acceptable for men to be paired with way younger women, it's hypocritical to make a fuss about drama couples like this.
