Sharp-eyed viewers spotted an inconsistency error in Jo In Sung’s age and birthday in SBS’s “That Winter, The Wind Blows,” which premiered earlier this week.
On yesterday’s episode of the new series, Secretary Wang (Bae jong Oak) went through Oh Soo’s (Jo In Sung) belongings while he was out of his room. While searching his room, she found his passport, driver’s license, and registration card. However, unlike Secretary Wang, several viewers were able to spot the inconsistent birthdays on the IDs. His passport and registration card listed his birthday as February 18, 1984, while his driver’s license listed it as September 12, 1979.
In the series, Jo In Sung plays Oh Soo, a playboy and a gambler who lives a meaningless life. In order to pay off a huge debt, he pretends to be Oh Young’s (Song Hye Gyo) lost brother, who coincidentally shares the same name as him. As such, viewers were confused as to whether this inconsistency was a mistake made by the production team or an intended detail.
Meanwhile, “That Winter, The Wind Blows” tied for first in ratings with KBS’s “IRIS 2,” recording 12.4% (AGB Nielsen).
