‘Thirty-Nine’ Update: Son Ye Jin, Jeon Mi Do, Kim Ji Hyun Reveal Their On-Screen Romance

February 17, 2022

Fans have finally seen the first episode of Thirty-Nine and are now even more excited for more episodes. After watching Son Ye Jin, Jeon Mi Do and Kim Ji Hyun’s hilarious pranks, the three main actors talk about their upcoming romances.

Thirty-Nine will not only tell the story of the friendship between the characters Son Ye Jin, Jeon Mi Do and Kim Ji Hyun. It will also tell their love stories as they meet their lovers Yeon Woo Jin, Lee Moo Saeng and Lee Tae Hwan on screen.

Kim Ji Hyun (Jang Joo Hee) will have an unremarkable love life among the three. Her romance with Lee Tae Hwan (Park Hyun Joo) is about to blossom and they will have a very healthy relationship, according to Soompi.

As someone who has never dated anyone, your character will be very cautious when it comes to dating – especially someone much younger than you. Alternatively, Jeon Mi Do (Jeong Chan Young) revealed that her role and Lee Moo Saeng’s (Kim Jin Seok) love story have a story to tell.

They’ve been through a lot, so it’s hard for her to summarize their romance. That’s why she asks fans to see more of their relationship as Thirty-Nine progresses and see their story unfold and come to an end.

Finally, Son Ye Jin (Cha Mi Jo) described her co-star Yeon Woo Jin (Kim Sun Woo) as so perfect it seems there is no man like him. It’s so incredibly romantic that it seems straight out of a fairy tale.

He’s considerate and forgiving, so she’s 100 percent sure fans will love their romance on the show. But Thirty-Nine isn’t all about fun and games.

As director Kim Sang Ho puts it, the three friends will soon realize that everything must come to an end after Jeong Chan Young is diagnosed with a terminal illness. From here they learn the meaning of the moment after learning the truth about death.

Although the filmmaker emphasizes that the series is not a drama about death, he makes it clear how important it is to live life to the fullest while being aware of dying. I want it to be drama about the importance of living righteously through three friends living life to the fullest while facing the death of a friend, he said.

Thirty-Nine will air every Wednesday and Thursday at 10:30pm KST.
