This casting news feels like a great female-centric drama is being assembled with smart casting. K-actress Son Ye Jin is in talks for the K-drama Thirty Nine, where she’s playing the female lead who is actually 39 years old so the title refers to age, I think the premise is female friends on the cusp of 40 and their love and professional lives. Son Ye Jin is a successful Gangnam skincare medical clinic director who has grown up with no worries in life. Jeon Mi Do is already cast and she’ll play a 39 year old as well but an acting teacher. The drama is from the screenwriter of Entertainer and Boyfriend (Encounter) and is slated to be a 12-episode series.
