Han Hye Jin is eight years older to husband Ki Sung Yueng Facebook

South Korean actress Han Hye Jin has opened up about the age gap between her and husband Ki Sung Yueng. The 35-year-old artist revealed how the 27-year-old professional footballer's parents reacted to their relationship.

During an episode of My Ugly Ducklings, the host asked Hye Jin about being being 8 years older than Sung Yueng. She responded: "My mom felt a little nervous about it at first. My family has three daughters. Because there was a big age gap, she frequently asked what my husband's parents thought about me."

She added: "My mother-in-law is very happy and positive. She laughed and said, 'It's so fun. I am for you guys. I am happy.' I was very surprised. She was so welcoming... My father-in-law said, 'Prove them wrong by living a happy life together."

Hye Jin added: "He was a bit concerned, though, because one day he said, 'It's not an 8-year-difference; it's actually 7 years and 3 months when I counted."

Adding on, she gushed about her husband's family. She said: "My dad passed away a year before my wedding, so my father-in-law walked me down the aisle."

The couple tied the knot in 2013. The two welcomed their first child together in 2015.
