Son Ye Jin, Jeon Mi Do, And Kim Ji Hyun Are Close-Knit Friends Living Ordinary Lives In “Thirty-Nine”
“Thirty-Nine” is about three friends who met in their second year of high school and are now on the verge of turning 40. The drama will tell the beautiful and emotional everyday stories of three 39-year-old women who encounter unforeseen circumstances in their lives.
Son Ye Jin plays Cha Mi Jo, the head dermatologist of a clinic in Gangnam. Jeon Mi Do takes the role of Jung Chan Young, an acting teacher who previously dreamed of becoming an actress, and Kim Ji Hyun stars as Jang Joo Hee, a department store cosmetics manager.
The newly released stills capture the daily lives of Cha Mi Jo, Jung Chan Young, and Jang Joo Hee. Although they try to go hiking together on a morning weekend for the sake of their health, they find toasting to makgeolli (Korean rice wine) more enjoyable than climbing to the summit. After getting off work, the three friends eat tteokbokki (spicy rice cakes) together while relieving the day’s stress with chatter, living normal and peaceful lives like most other people.
Since they first met when they were 18 years old, Cha Mi Jo, Jung Chan Young, and Jang Joo Hee have built a tremendous amount of history together. Although the trio is now at an age in which they can enjoy soju with tteokbokki, their friendship is still as fresh and vivid as when they were young teenagers.
In the upcoming drama, Cha Mi Jo, Jung Chan Young, and Jang Joo Hee will spend a very special and exciting time as 39-year-olds together. As friends who sacrifice their own time and throw their pride away in front of strangers for each other, their relationship will become even tighter as time passes. Viewers are looking forward to finding out how the three have come to be so close and what events will unfold for them in the future.
Finally, one of the most interesting points to look forward to in the upcoming drama will be the synergy between the three actors. With global K-drama sensation Son Ye Jin, rising star Jeon Mi Do, and talented actress Kim Ji Hyun, “Thirty-Nine” will tell a touching story about friendship and love that viewers can highly anticipate.
“Thirty-Nine” will premiere on February 16 at 10:30 p.m. KST. Check out a teaser for the drama here!
