She has been cast as the female lead in a new JTBC drama titled 'Pretty Noona Who Buys Me Food' (literal translation), a romance genre about a man and a woman who used to just 'know each other' but eventually fall in love. Son Ye Jin plays the role of Yoon Jin Ah, a coffee company supervisor in her thirties who believes she has achieved nothing in her career nor her love life.
Shortly after Son Ye Jin's casting news, it was revealed that rising actor Jung Hae In is considering the male lead role of Seo Jun Hee, the younger brother of Yoon Jin Ah's close friend. Seo Jun Hee used to seem just like a younger brother to Jin Ah until her view of him changes gradually.
'Pretty Noona Who Buys Me Food' is scheduled to air sometime this March. Do you want to see Son Ye Jin and Jung Hae In working together?
