It seems like Son Ye Jin will be joined by a more impressive cast for the upcoming Kdrama Thirty, Nine.
Just recently, actresses Jeon Mi Do and Kim Ji Hyun confirmed their participation in the new JTBC Kdrama Thirty, Nine alongside Crash Landing On You actress Son Ye Jin.
The new Kdrama Thirty, Nine will tell heartwarming stories of friendship between second-year high school girls who are now on their way to turning 40. As the girls create a precious connection, they altogether experience the wonders of life as they try to enjoy their lives as 39 year-olds.
Specifically, the Kdrama will portray the beautiful and emotional stories of three 39-year-old women who encounter such circumstances that will make their lives more interesting.
The cast of JTBC Kdrama Thirty, Nine
Son Ye Jin will play the role of Cha Mi-jo, the head of a dermatology clinic in Gangnam. Cha Mi-jo is a 39-year-old woman who is warm yet sometimes gives off a cool vibe as someone who grew up in a wealthy neighborhood between a caring father, a generous mother, and a well-natured sibling.
On the other hand, Jeon Mi Do will showcase her acting skills as Jung Chan-young. Her character dreams of becoming an actress. But as not everything goes well to plan, she ended up becoming an acting teacher, instead. The viewers should bear in mind that although Jung Chan-young spits out spiteful and harsh words, her sincerity makes her a character that everyone cannot hate.
Lastly, Kim Ji Hyun will take on the role of Jang Joo-hee, a Cosmetics Manager at a department store. Jang Joo-hee has a timid personality and has never had a proper experience in a romantic relationship.
