Park Si Hoo apparently wasn′t as young as everyone thought he was.

Though the age listed in his profile says he was born on April 3, 1978, his birthday is actually registered as February 15, 1977.

His real age first drew interest as he appeared impossibly to be the same age as his little brother, athlete Park Woo Ho.

Park Woo Ho was a former professional baseball player and golf player, and is currently active as Park Si Hoo′s manager. While he was an athlete, Park Woo Ho was known to have been born on May 15, 1978, leading netizens to become baffled when Park Si Hoo debuted with a birthday that said he was born in the same year as his little brother.

Park Si Hoo showed he knows of the debates, but never opened up on the issue. He merely gave hints on SBS′ Healing Camp, which he appeared in on December 2012.

When asked how old he is, he mumbled that he is in his "mid-30s," and showed he wasn′t inclined to announce his exact age when he said, "I want to live young."

One acquaintance of Park Si Hoo said, "He doesn′t look like he was born in the year 1976 because he has a baby-face. He attended school with fellow 38-year-olds, but he looks like he′s in his early 30s. I know for a fact that he took some years off in case his age became a hindrance in his career with his late debut."

Park Si Hoo attended school with 1976-born peers, thanks to his early birthday.

It became that Park Si Hoo was recently sued for rape by an aspiring celebrity on February 18. Park Si Hoo has denied all charges.
