The end of the third episode has everyone talking and in shock! Netizens have been debating the age difference between Oh Soo Jae (37), an accomplished lawyer, and law school student Gong Chan, 31 (Hwang In Yeop The Sound Of Magic 2022). Of course, these are their real ages although no one really knows the age of their characters. This type of taboo subject, especially in South Korea, has left everyone scratching their heads if this is socially acceptable.
