6 romantic dramas where the protagonists have a big age difference
Romance novels are always appreciated in kdramas in general, and couples are usually praised for their visuals and chemistry.
However, more and more kdramas deal with adult storylines, especially with age differences between the main characters.
If you’d like to see some more of that type of relationship, we’ve got you covered!
Here are six romantic K-dramas where the main actors had an age difference of more than ten years!
- A witch’s love
Ban Ji Yeon is a 39-year-old single woman. She works as a journalist and is very enthusiastic about her job. So much so that she is often referred to as a “witch” at work.
She doesn’t believe in true love because her boyfriend disappeared before their wedding.
Yoon Dong Ha is a 25-year-old young man who runs a small shopping mall with his boyfriend. He seems like a happy guy, but he lost his girlfriend in an accident.
Sparks fly when Ji Yeon and Dong Ha meet, and despite the age difference, they find many things in common, including their broken hearts.
- marriage contract
After being diagnosed with a potentially fatal brain tumor, Kang Hye Soo, a desperate single mother, agrees to donate a liver to her new boss’s mother.
In return, she receives a large sum of money that she intends to leave to her daughter. To pass the selection process, they must marry legally and convince the hospital that they are in a long-term relationship.
What they foolishly thought was a silent transaction between the two quickly becomes more complicated as more people get involved, including his seven-year-old daughter. Money isn’t the only thing needed to be happy, and love makes life worth living.
The kdrama aired in 2016 when Seo Jin was 45 and Uee was 28. So, the age difference between the main actors was 17 years.
- My secret Terrius
This kdrama tells the story of a widow who, with the help of her neighbor, who is also a former NIS agent, uncovers the conspiracy behind her husband’s death.
While So Ji Sub is from 1977, In Sun was born in 1991, so their age difference is 14 years. When the KDrama aired in 2018, Seo was 41 years old while In Sun was 27 years old.
- i can hear your voice
Hye Sung becomes a lawyer and becomes aware of society and justice after meeting Park Soo Ha, a boy who reads other people’s minds, and Cha Kwan Woo, an innocent lawyer who lives a disciplined life. Together they solve the most difficult cases.
There is a ten-year age difference between the two leads, with Lee Jong Suk dating from 1989 and Bo Young from 1979. When the series aired, they were 24 and 34 years old respectively.
- my beautiful girl
Lee Hyun Wook is an entertainment company producer. After losing his girlfriend in an accident, he meets and falls in love with his girlfriend’s younger sister, Yoon Se Na. She dreams of becoming a music producer.
In real life, the two actors are 12 years apart: Rain is from 1982 and Krystal is from 1994.
- Guardian: The Lonely and Great God (Goblin)
Guardian: The Lonely and Great God, also known as Goblin, tells the love story of an immortal being (Gong Yoo) who is willing to overcome his curse by falling in love with a student (Kim Go Eun).
Gong Yoo and Kim Go Eun have a 12-year age difference, with the former turning 43 this year and Kim Go Eun turning 31. But in KDrama, Kim Shin and Ji Eun Tak had an age difference of 920 years!
