JTBC has shared a new sneak peek of its upcoming drama “39” (literal title)!
“39” is about three friends who met in their second year of high school and are now on the verge of turning 40. The drama will tell the beautiful and emotional everyday stories of three 39-year-old women who encounter unforeseen circumstances in their lives.
Son Ye Jin plays Cha Mi Jo, the head dermatologist of a clinic in Gangnam. Jeon Mi Do takes the role of Jung Chan Young, an acting teacher who previously dreamed of becoming an actress, and Kim Ji Hyun stars as Jang Joo Hee, a department store cosmetics manager.
The newly released teaser shares a glimpse of their sweet and steadfast friendship. The caption reads, “They’re always romantic and happy to be together,” hinting how the three women can get through anything as long as they have each other.
Cha Mi Jo, Jung Chan Young, and Jang Joo Hee do everything together including going to the massage parlor, clubbing, and eating delicious food. The three have very different personalities though. First off, Cha Mi Jo exudes grace and beauty, and she randomly declares, “I’m going to study abroad. To study golf.”
Jung Chan Young has a fiery personality, and she blurts out sharp words whenever she’s irritated. She tells Kim Jin Seok (Lee Moo Saeng), her love interest, “I quit smoking. I’m going to quit you too.”
Jang Joo Hee is interested in Park Hyun Joon (Lee Tae Hwan), the owner and chef of China Town. Being the nosy friends they are, Cha Mi Jo and Jung Chan Young go check out the restaurant with Jang Joo Hee and take a peek at her crush.
The teaser ends with Cha Mi Jo holding out her first. Even though she doesn’t say anything, Jung Chan Young and Jang Joo Hee know exactly what she means. Excitedly, they get ready to play rock, paper, scissors, and Jung Chan Young asks, “Are we making a bet on who has to buy pork trotters?”
“39” will premiere on February 16 at 10:30 p.m. KST. In the meantime, check out the new teaser below!
