Could Lee ByungHun and Kim TaeRi overcome the huge age gap in drama “Mr. Sunshine“?
Korean drama’s the best Midas’s touch, Kim EunSook, revealed her new drama couple, Lee ByungHun and Kim TaeRi. After her announcement, lots of netizens felt confusing and some of them express their furious opinions on this. The point there was ‘Age gap’ between Lee ByungHun and Kim TaeRi. Someone was being sarcastic, pointing out they look like ‘uncle and niece’. Of course, there’s no fixed rule that defines proper age gap between main characters in drama or movie. However, there are rising controversies that are arguing it’s too big gap enough to imagine them to be uncle and niece. Kim TaeRi is 20 years younger than Lee ByungHun. Besides, Kim TaeRi has a baby face, so netizens are concerned about that their age gap will look much bigger.
Nevertheless, there are some supporting voices saying, both of two actors are skillful actors and also Kim EunSook writer has proven her amazing writing skill in lots of dramas. They are believing that those synergy could overcome the age gap. What do you think about this? I bet, all those arguing on age gap will be silent, watching the drama, soon. Because it’s Kim EunSook, who has created “The Descendant of the Sun”, “The Heirs”, “Secret Garden”, “A Gentleman’s Dignity” and recently, “The Lonely, Shinning Goblin”!
