Actress Kang Ye-won corrected her actual age.
An official from J WIDE Company, Kang Ye-won‘s agency, told The Daily on January 27th, “Kang Ye-won’s profile said she was born in 1980, but she was actually born in 1979.”
According to the agency, Kang Ye-won was said to have been born in 1980 when she debuted under her first agency, and she maintained this information even after moving to another agency. Kang Ye-won is an actress who has been active in the entertainment industry for more than 20 years. As she plays various roles in a wide range of genres of works, she is not greatly affected by her age in her acting activities. Since the actress rarely mentions her age during her activities, she did not correct the age announced at the beginning of her debut.
Earlier, Kang Ye-won said she was a university friend of actor Cho Seung-woo, who was born in 1980. Some raised suspicions over these remarks, saying, “Didn’t she lie to deceive us about her age?” but her agency explained, “she is truly a university friend of Cho Seung-woo.”
