Get ready for Son Ye Jin and Yeon Woo Jin to grow even closer on JTBC’s “Thirty-Nine”!
“Thirty-Nine” is a drama about three friends who met in their second year of high school and are now on the verge of turning 40. Son Ye Jin stars as Cha Mi Jo, the head dermatologist at a clinic in Gangnam; Jeon Mi Do stars as Jung Chan Young, an acting teacher who once dreamed of becoming an actress; and Kim Ji Hyun stars as Jang Joo Hee, a department store cosmetics manager.
On the previous episode of “Thirty-Nine,” Kim Sun Woo (played by Yeon Woo Jin) fought with his dad over his younger sister Kim So Won (played by Ahn So Hee). Although Kim Sun Woo insisted that his dad apologize to So Won, he stubbornly refused, leading him to become deeply disappointed in his father.
As the incident forced him to look ahead towards the future, Kim Sun Woo shocked Cha Mi Jo by unexpectedly revealing out of the blue that he wanted to marry her. Although Cha Mi Jo was unprepared for his casual proposal, their love became deeper and stronger in the aftermath.
In newly released stills from the drama’s next episode, the couple spends some quality time together on a romantic date on the beach. After receiving comfort from Kim Sun Woo while struggling with the news of her friend’s terminal illness, Cha Mi Jo is now paying him back by returning that comfort in Kim Sun Woo’s own time of need.
Notably, while sitting together in a cafe, Cha Mi Jo also extends her hand to Kim Sun Woo in a pose that evokes a proposal. The gesture—and the emotional look in the couple’s eyes as they gaze at one another—raises the question of what Cha Mi Jo is offering as she reaches out for Kim Sun Woo.
The next episode of “Thirty-Nine” will air on March 23 at 10:30 p.m. KST.
