Jun’s last project was the special episode of Kingdom: Ashin Of The North. The 40-year-old will act opposite Ju Ji-hoon, her Kingdom co-star in the action thriller Cliffhanger due to air in Oct. Before this, her last project was Legend Of The Blue Sea (2016).

Jun plays a senior forest ranger in Mount Jiri National Park in Cliffhanger. 

Jun is partnered with Ju Ji-hoon, who is a rookie. They have to team up to help locate lost trekkers.

The series was filmed during a nine-month period at Mudeungsan Mountain in Gwangju, which is part of Mudeungsan National Park in South Korea.

Goblin and Mr. Sunshine director Lee Eung-bok helm the show while screenwriter Kim Eun-hee, who created the historical zombie series Kingdom, penned this series.

Song Hye Kyo

The upcoming rom-com Now, We Are Breaking Up is the actress’s latest project since Encounter (2018).

Scheduled to air in Nov, Song stars as a manager of a design team at a fashion house. The 40-year-old will be wearing beautiful outfits in the series.

Speaking to Vogue Korea – the former wife of Song Joong Ki shared that she is used to being asked if she is doing another romance drama.

She said: “I think that in the romance dramas I acted in during my 20s, 30s, and now, I’m changing externally and internally. And I believe there are small differences in the feelings I portray as I act.

“I think that as time passes and I build myself through various experiences, the aspects I express while acting, even if it’s of the same situation, will definitely be different from the past.”

Son Ye Jin was last seen in Crash Landing On You.
