“Thirty-Nine” stars Son Ye Jin, Jeon Mi Do, and Kim Ji Hyun as three friends who met in their second year of high school and are now on the verge of turning 40.
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 next photo depicts Cha Mi Jo gazing at her depressed friends as if she’s making up her mind about something. Then things take an unexpected turn when each of them appear with a brick in hand. They seem fearful and hesitant, but they are united with firm resolve. The final still shows that they have caused a major accident. After throwing the bricks at the store, they hug each other tightly. Viewers explode with curiosity as they wonder what happened to Jung Chan Young and why the trio caused such a huge mess.
In episode 9, Jung Chan Young, who was diagnosed with stage 4 pancreatic cancer, will experience a difficult time as her conditions worsen. Therefore, the three friend, who vowed to spend the rest of their time together in an exciting and happy way, will face a sad reality.
