Jeon Mi Do and Kim Ji Hyun expressed their respect and affection for Son Ye Jin.
On the afternoon of February 16th, a production presentation for JTBC‘s new Wednesday-Thursday drama “Thirty Nine” (written by Yoo Young Ah, directed by Kim Sang Ho) was held online. Actors Son Ye Jin, Jeon Mi Do, Kim Ji Hyun, Yeon Woo Jin, Lee Moo Saeng, Lee Tae Hwan and Kim Sang Ho attended the event.
“Thirty Nine” is a real human romance drama that deals with the in-depth story of friendship, love, and life of three friends who are just around the corner. Through the three friends, the stable happiness of ordinary daily life and the romance that blooms in the harsh reality herald healing beyond empathy.
Kim Ji Hyun took on the role of Jang Joo Hee, a department store cosmetics manager and mother-in-law, while Jeon Mi Do took on the role of Jeong Chan Yeong, who dreamed of becoming an actress, but now has an acting teacher as her job.
On that day, Jeon Mi Do said, “We are actually friends with Kim Ji Hyun for more than a decade“. She said, “We were both fans of Son Ye Jin. Since we don’t have much experience, there were many shortcomings. Whenever that happened, we asked her to teach us a lot by calling her ‘Sunbaenim’ and ‘Son Pro’”.
Kim Ji Hyun said, “The fact that I was acting with Son Ye Jin felt unrealistic“, adding, “Son Ye Jin, who I actually met, was so beautiful and I didn’t know she was such a fun person while filming together“.
The real-life human romance “Thirty Nine“, which deals with the friendship and love of the three women, will air at 10:30 p.m. on February 16th.
