Fans finally get to see Son Ye Jin in a white coat for her doctor role in Thirty Nine.
In the upcoming drama Thirty Nine that is currently filming, Son Ye Jin plays Cha Mi Jo, a 39-year-old woman who grew up in a rich family and is now a head dermatologist of a clinic in Gangnam. This is the rare time in her acting career Son Ye Jin takes on the role of a doctor, so the viewers are extremely looking forward to seeing her wearing a lab coat on screen. After some photos were revealed of Son Ye Jin on set of Thirty Nine wearing fancy clothes that remind the audience of her chaebol character in Crash Landing On You, finally there is a photo of the actress in a doctor outfit, unfortunately only her back can be seen.
In particular, in this behind-the-scenes photo, a male character also appears. This seems to be Yeon Woo Jin – Son Ye Jin’s co-star in the drama. Yeon Woo Jin plays Kim Sun Woo, a 39-year-old dermatologist who returns to Korea after a long time in America. He is a forward-thinker with a good heart. While working at the new hospital, he is attracted to Cha Mi Jo. In this scene, it seems that Sun Woo comes to Mi Jo‘s office to bring her a gift. The two seem to be quite close.
Some comments from netizens:
- I want to see Son Ye Jin’s face, can the production crew tell her to turn around?
- Doctor Cha Mi Jo, my heart is beating fast because of you.
- Even her back looks pretty
- The previous set photo makes me think she is playing some kind of chaebol character, luckily she’s still a doctor
- I can’t wait to see the drama!
