A new Sohn Ye-jin and Jeon Mi-do drama on the horizon

Crash Landing on You star Sohn Ye-jin is preparing to make her comeback in upcoming JTBC drama Thirty, Nine. It’s all about a trio of women who are best friends. The drama delves into the deeper story about their friendship, romances, and lives as they approach the age of forty.

Sohn Ye-jin has been cast in the main role of Cha Mi-jo, the chief director of a dermatology clinic in Gangnam, who grew up in a well-to-do family. Previously, Jeon Mi-do (Hospital Playlist) confirmed that she will be playing one of Cha Mi-jo’s best friends: Jung Chan-young.

A drama about strong women with great careers sharing friendship? I’m totally in! Plus, Sohn Ye-jin and Jeon Mi-do are both amazingly talented actresses who are on the forefront of the Hallyu wave now. I can’t wait to see who they cast as the third in the trio (*crosses fingers* Ha Ji-won please).

Written by Yoo Young-ah (Boyfriend) and directed by Kim Sang-ho (Run On), realistic romance drama Thirty, Nine will be a 12-episode series. Filming is expected to begin in August after casting finishes.

I love this. Women lead dramas have not disappointed me for the most part, especially when it is about a group of women who are friends.

Happy for a female-centric drama, especially with these actresses. I'm a fan of the director too after Run On. I'd rather it focus more on friendships and careers than romance but hopefully there is a good balance.

What about Gong Hyo-Jin for the third character?? Was her casting ever confirmed for Queen of the Scene?

SYJ said she took her Something in the Rain role because it was about a career woman in her 30s (just like herself) having to make real life choices. It seems 39 is a continuation of that type of role for her. I look forward to the series and the fact that it is only 12 episodes.

Han Ye-ri would be an amazing round-off to the troika, but she's got a drama coming out in the later part of the year, I think? I do like Ha Ji-won, but what about Choo Ja-hyun or Yoo In-na? Regardless, a trio of women friends being awesome is totally my cuppa!

I was wondering while reading the comments why people were throwing out names... until I read the article. I thought the third lady is confirmed to be a musical actress (can't remember the name)? They are going with an all-82-er cast so exactly 39 in international age.

Yep she is! but from what I know, she and Mido haven't confirmed yet. They only confirmed that they got the scripts and positively considering. so far, only Yejin is confirmed 100% to appear in the drama. I think tineybeanie is confused because I never saw any news reporting Mido's confirmed appearance in the drama or maybe I'm wrong hmm.

I would add Lee Min Jung to the mix! She's also an 82', and she's besties with Son Ye Jin in real life too! Plus, she's a talented actress who deserves a big break like this again! How come no one has offered the role to her yet?
