Son Ye-jin will be taking on the role of Cha Mi-jo, who’s the Head of Dermatology of a clinic in Gangnam. Jeon Mi-do, who’s known for her role as Chae Song-hwa in Hospital Playlist, is in talks to star as one of Mi-jo’s 2 friends, Jung Chan-young.

This 12-episode drama will be helmed by Kim Sang-ho, the co-director of Run On, and it’ll be written by the writer of the popular romance drama Encounter.

A more detailed synopsis of Thirty-Nine has yet to be released, but from what we’ve got so far, this show gives off Age of Youth vibes. As the drama is scheduled to start filming later this year, it won’t be long till we get to watch it.
