During a recent interview, Lee Byung Hun talked about his upcoming role in the drama “Mr. Sunshine” and addressed the wide age gap between him and his co-star Kim Tae Ri.
Lee Byung Hun (born in 1970) turned 47 in july, while Kim Taeri (born in 1990) is 27.
When asked how he feels about acting alongside Kim Tae Ri, Lee Byung Hun said, “I’m not sure what our dynamics will be like because I haven’t received a script yet. However, I met Kim Tae Ri pretty often last year because she was receiving awards for ‘The Handmaiden’ while I was getting them for ‘Inside Men.’ I met her, Son Ye Jin, and Park Jung Min as fellow award-recipients at almost half of the awards ceremonies, and there were over 10 of them in total. It almost felt like we had worked on a project together, and we ended up feeling like we’d known each other for a long time.”
This isn't the first time Kim Eun Sook features a couple with a large age gap in one of her dramas, as seen in "Goblin" with Gong Yoo (born in 1979) and Kim Go Eun (born in 1991).
"Mr. Sunshine" will be a weekend drama that airs in 2018 starring: Lee Byung Hun, Kim Tae Ri, Yoo Yeon Seok, Byun Yo Han and Jo Woo Jin.
