Jo Soo Hyang who was born in 1991, has appeared in many projects over the years with her most recent appearance being in JTBC hit drama “Pretty Noona Who Buys Me Food.”

What do you personally think of this?
My Personal thoughts
I have seen lots of netizens comment on this subject and man some of them were extremely harsh.
I get it; the 20 year gap is A LOT. But they’re two adults and they can do whatever they want, so everybody need to chill.
Its not personally my style to date someone way older than me but I know people who don’t mind that. Besides, the two have been reportedly dating for two years, so it seems to be going fine for them.
I also like the agency’s response, so cool!
