When thinking of a traditional married couple, certain pairs of people probably come to mind. The man and woman you view in your mind are probably around the same age. The man may even be older than the woman. Society has shown that these are relationship normalities. Just like any relationship, there are advantages and disadvantages to this situation. Women have not always had as much power in the working world.
Age is nothing but a number and there are K-drama romances out there proving just that. Their romance is sweet but secretive, and they fight against familial and societal prejudices regarding their age difference throughout. It's the perfect combination of cute, romantic and angsty. A real trope-fest of a drama, the age gap isn't so obvious given the personalities at play: while Kim So Yeon 's older woman is playful and a little immature, Sung Joon is the charismatic rich boy with a lot of confidence. Adding onto the noona romance here is a love triangle and the rich-man-meets-poor-girl story.
In interviews this week, Kate Winslet, 40, expressed surprise at the publicity being given to the age of her on-screen lover in her latest film, The Dressmaker , which features a still rare pairing: an older woman and a much younger man. Her year-old co-star, Liam Hemsworth, may not have helped, however, by admitting that he initially worried about whether their scenes together might seem weird. Increasing sensitivity to the concept of the dirty old man was perhaps the reason that, in Lost in Translation, the connection between Murray and Johansson remained at the level of ambiguous flirtation , and it may also be significant that the director was a woman, Sofia Coppola.
While generally men seem to mature more slowly than women, there are plenty of successful marriages between younger men and older women—I personally know a number of them. Of course, the wider the age gap, the more both individuals need to be aware of factors that could impact and challenge their relationship. The first and most obvious one involves fertility.
