An expert explains the popularity of these 2 actresses in their 40s, who continue to enjoy challenges.
In the case of Song Hye Kyo, the actress started to trend after posting a photo of cupcakes on her personal SNS. The cupcakes, which seem to have been a gift, are designed after Song Hye Kyo’s dog, Ruby, and took inspiration from her face and name.
With just the simple caption “Cute”, the photo became a hot topic among fans.
Song Hye Kyo, currently filming Kim Eun Sook’s new drama “The Glory”, has not been active in terms of official activities except for a trip to Europe for several fashion events last month. As a result, the actress’ fans rejoice when it comes to news related to her daily life, clicking on to every news of Song Hye Kyo and pressing the like button.
When Son Ye Jin posted a photo of a rainbow and a four-leaf clover on her Instagram, fellow actress Lee Min Jung commented jokingly, “Isn’t this counterfeit?”
The comment of Lee Min Jung, who has always been known for having a clever sense of humor, and is even called a “comment craftsman”, did not fail to crack up her audience.
Soon enough, news titled “Son Ye Jin’s counterfeit theory” garnered a lot of attention from fans. After her “wedding of the century” with actor Hyun Bin, Son Ye Jin is about to give birth at the end of this year, so there’s also little to be reported about the actress’ current situation. Therefore, even a daily trivia of hers can go viral across the net.
Regarding such a trend, an industry official explained: “In the past, actresses in their mid 30s peaked the most during their 20s. After that, their popularity tends to suffer from a downward trend. However, this is now reversed, as super star actresses with acting skills like Kim Hye Soo, Son Ye Jin, Song Hye Kyo, and more, saw their fame broadening over time. They all share one thing in common: the willingness to take on new challenges and lack of hesitation when it comes to trying out new characters. Since they have shown themselves as role models for their juniors, their star and topical qualities can also be maintained for a long time.”
