Son Ye-jin’s phenomenal 2021 so far: after that Hyun Bin relationship reveal, the Crash Landing on You star nabbed a Valentino deal and possible role in K-drama 39, but what about a Hollywood debut?
Sadly for us, Son hasn’t taken on any big roles since Crash Landing, but that doesn’t mean her 2021 hasn’t been eventful. Here’s what she’s been up to.
Things are going very well with boyfriend Hyun Bin
The world might have fallen hard for Crash Landing, but a cute relationship between celebs definitely seems to help too, when it comes to ads.
Upcoming projects to look forward to
If you’ve been missing Son’s beauty gracing your screens since Crash Landing on You, you’re definitely not alone. But the wait might soon be over: according to sources like Soompi, Son is currently in talks to star in JTBC’s new drama, 39, a 12-episode series about the everyday lives of three female friends about to turn 40. (Appropriate, since Son is 39 years old herself, too – on the Western calendar anyway.)
Son has been offered the role of Cha Mi-jo, the head dermatologist at a Gangnam clinic with a wealthy background. The drama is expected to begin filming in the second half of the year.
More new brand endorsement deals
Son is also working on other newly signed deals, like the one with Crocodile Ladies this year.
- Filming for her Hollywood debut movie The Cross, directed by Andrew Niccol and starring Sam Worthington, may be delayed due to Covid-19
- Louis Vuitton signed BTS, Fendi got Song Hye-kyo – and Crocodile Ladies has Son Ye-jin; fans should scope the BinJin moments in Smart Communications’ ad too
