Korean actor Song Seung Heon has ageing on his mind, perhaps due to his recent time-travel medical drama Dr Jin, which he was promoting in Singapore last week.

He is feeling his advancing years because his co-stars are younger than him, his fans are mothers who were once schoolgirls, and he misses his youth.

Song plays time-travelling neurosurgeon Jin Hyuk in Dr Jin, which premieres on Channel U on April 1, which he is here to promote, and in it, he stars with Park Min Young, 26, and K-pop idol Kim Jaejoong, 27.

He says: "When I see these young ones, I envy them. But they do tell me that they want to learn from me as well, and I also think there are lessons to be learnt from them."
