Three women, nearing 40, talk in 'Thirty, Nine'
Actor Son Ye-jin is to star in JTBC drama series, "Thirty, Nine" (translated), MSTeam Entertainment said Wednesday. Son's last drama was "Crash Landing on You" (2019-2020).
"Thirty, Nine" is a "12-episode romance-human-drama miniseries," according to JTBC. It revolves around three women who are friends, all on the verge of turning 40. The drama will be co-produced with Lotte Culture Works.
Son will be playing the role of Cha Mi-jo, who has no tragic family background and no mystery childhood secrets. She has had everything she could ask for. But she still feels an emptiness, and the three friends talk about their lives and empathize with each other.
Jeong Chan-young, one of the three friends, will be played by actor Jeon Mi-do, who is currently starring in the second season of tvN's "Hospital Playlist."
The drama will be written by Yoo Young-ah, who was the scriptwriter on a number of hits, including "Kim Ji Young, Born In 1982" (2019) and "Miracle in Cell No. 7"(2012). It will be directed by Kim Sang-ho.
