“He’s Young Enough To Be Her Son”: Cha Eun Woo, 26, Set To Have “Delicate Relationship” With Kim Nam Joo, 52, In Upcoming K-Drama
Netizens are not feeling this pairing, with one noting that Eun Woo's real life mum is 50 this year.
Korean media outlets are reporting that Korean actor Cha Eun Woo, 26, is in talks to star in upcoming revenge drama, Wonderful World.
The drama will also feature Korean actress Kim Nam Joo, 52, who plays a woman seeking vengeance on the criminals who got off scot-free after killing her son.
If you think that Eun Woo is playing said son, well, you're wrong. Eun Woo, who’s also a member of K-pop boyband ASTRO, will play a guy who is determined to be a doctor after suffering from an illness as a child.
According to the drama’s synopsis, Nam Joo and Eun Woo’s characters will eventually meet and develop a “delicate relationship”.
It is not clear if their relationship will be kept platonic, or progress into a romance.
Netizens, however, are not looking forward to this pairing at all because of the massive 26 year age gap between Nam Joo and Eun Woo.
“This is gross. Even if I like all of the cast members, this is too gross,” one netizen wrote.
Another netizen noted that Eun Woo’s real mum is only 50 this year, making her two years younger than Nam Joo.
“Eun Woo’s young enough to be Nam Joo’s son,” said one netizen.
Others wondered if working with Nam Joo would mean that Eun Woo will have an opportunity to brush up his acting skills, since Nam Joo is regarded as a “goddess of acting”.
