What is the plot of Thirty-Nine?

Three women, who each met other during their second year in high school, have remained friends for years and are now all on the verge of turning 40. With such a landmark birthday on the horizon, there are still lots the trio wishes to achieve such as lessons in love, careers, and family matters.

Who are the cast members of Thirty-Nine?

Son Ye Jin previously starred in the incredibly popular tvN drama Crash Landing on You and was praised heavily for her performance as Yoon Se Ri. Surprisingly, Son Ye Jin hasn’t starred in any other drama for almost two years, so the premiere of Thirty-Nine will have many happy fans seeing her in action once more.

Jeon Mi Do’s musical background was showcased on her time in Hospital Playlist, but Thirty-Nine is only the actress’s third k-drama to date, or fourth if you include both seasons of Hospital Playlist.

Since making her k-drama debut in 2008, actress Kim Ji Hyun hasn’t been able to get hold of a lead role in a drama but has starred in some very popular titles such as Hometown Cha-Cha-Cha, Romance is a Bonus Book, and Prison Playbook.
