On a recent episode of Taxi
, a show where celebrities ride around in a taxi while being interviewed, Kim Dong Wan talked about why it's common for older male celebrities to marry younger women. Now hold on, and don't get mad before you hear Kim Dong Wan's
reasoning behind his thinking.
Remember when Tony Ahn was reported
to be dating Girls Day member Hyeri -- who is 16 years younger than him -- a few months ago? Well Kim Dong Wan explained that when they were younger they had tons of opportunities to meet women their own age. Now that they're older their dating pool has gotten smaller since those women are now married. When they go out the women around them are now more than 8 years younger than them. So in other words, it just happens to be that the girl is younger than the guy, not that the guy is actually seeking a younger girl.
I totally understand where he's coming from and believe that's what happens in some cases. However, I'm sure there are those guys who are seeking someone younger and that's ok, because at the end of this whole story Kim Dong Wan is still available! ^_^
