It has been almost a year and a half since Crash Landing On You allowed us to fall in love with one of our favourite K-drama couples, Son Ye-jin and Hyun Bin. And just recently, the two have announced their wedding plans, leaving fans a real happy ending for the couple.
If you have been waiting for either of them to make a comeback, the wait is finally over because Son will soon be starring in a new Korean drama called Thirty-Nine which is set to air on Netflix on February 16.
Son will be joined by a star-studded cast with a plot that’s set to make you laugh, cry and inspired. Here, we break down everything we know so far about the upcoming K-drama.
1. An incredible cast
Besides Son Ye-jin, Thirty-Nine cast members include Jeon Mi-do from Hospital Playlist. The show was so well-loved and well-received that it picked up for a second season. It’s hard to imagine that Thirty-Nine is the actress’ only third K-drama to date.
Kim Ji-hyun is also starring in the drama—her first lead role to date. But the actress has appeared in many popular titles such as Hometown Cha Cha Cha, Romance is a Bonus Book and Prison Playbook.
