Actress Kim Tae Ri commented on her 20-year age difference with her co-star Lee Byung Hun for their upcoming drama “Mr. Sunshine.”
On December 18, Kim Tae Ri discussed the issue, saying, “I do think about the concerns. However, there’s nothing I can do about [the age difference], so I will try my best in what has been given to me.”
The actress also added, “There’s a big gap in my acting experience compared to [Lee Byung Hun], so I have to put forth my best effort. I haven’t filmed with Lee Byung Hun yet.” She made others laugh when she continued, “I only saw him at the script reading. He seems a bit taciturn.”
Kim Tae Ri will take on the lead role for tvN’s drama “Mr. Sunshine,” which is slated to air next year. There was a lot of talk regarding the casting and the 20-year age difference between 27-year old Kim Tae Ri and 47-year old Lee Byung Hun. Recently, Gong Yoo and Kim Go Eun also had a 11-year age difference as the main characters of tvN’s “Goblin,” while Lee Sun Gyun and IU will have a 18-year age difference for upcoming tvN drama “My Ahjusshi” (working title).
