Lim Soo-hyang who plays Dan Sa Ran in The New Tales of Gisaeng appeared on an SBS entertainment show on the 16th June and she brought her high school graduation album with her! Apparently there have been rumours that she is quite a bit older than she claims to be. She is (Korean age) 22 and graduated from high school in 2009 but it seems some netizens have suggested that she is more like 29! Some have commented on internet forums things like “there’s no way she’s younger than me.”
So to clear up the issue she revealed her high school pictures in the interview. She says that in the graduation photo she is actually wearing a wig so the hairstyle is a bit weird. (wow I would never have thought of wearing a wig for a school photo! Actually I’ve never worn a wig, but I’m starting to think about it now…) The comment on the bottom of the group picture (above) 포즈도 조숙한 ~ ( pose do cho-suk han ~) means that she looks more grown up than her friends in the picture. (cho-suk ha da = precocious / early maturity).Lim Soo-hyang also added that this is her first appearance in a drama and she got the role by auditioning – not through the back door with connections.
I suppose she does look more grown up than the others in the picture but I hadn’t really thought about her age while I was watching the drama.. I wonder if this will now clear up the rumours.
