Son Ye Jin may be returning to the small screen with Thirty-Nine (literal title).
According to media outlets, Son Ye Jin was offered to lead the upcoming JTBC series Thirty-Nine.
Thirty-Nine is a real-life human romance about the love and life of three 39-years-old friends. And it will be a 12-part series by Lotte Culture works. Encounter screenwriter Yoo Young Ah pens the script, while Run On co-director Kim Sang Ho helms the production.
The role that Son Ye Jin will be playing is 39-years-old Cha Mi Jo. She was born with a silver spoon in her mouth and now owns her dermatology clinic in Gangnam. If she joins the project, she will be working with Hospital Playlist actress Jeon Mi Do.
Earlier, Son Ye Jin had been preparing for her Hollywood film Cross. But when the production indefinitely postponed the series due to coronavirus, the actress started reviewing Korean projects. If she stars in Thirty-Nine, it will be her comeback in about a year since Crash Landing On You.
In response, MSTeam Entertainment shared, “Son Ye Jin was offered the lead role and is positively reviewing it.”
Thirty-Nine will begin filming in the latter half of this year.
