Korean Fans Discuss Possible Explanations For “Noona Love” K-Drama Trend

After seeing the main cast of current and upcoming dramas, netizens noticed that there seems to be a very apparent trend in the industry. 

As seen in hit drama Descendants of the Sun, as well as upcoming series Lucky Romance and W, popular dramas are casting female leads who are older than the male leads. And while media outlets questioned the unusual trend, many netizens have attributed the popularity of older female leads to the lack of decent young actresses and the proliferation of skilled veterans.
