Kim Go-eun gets ready for a date with Ahn Bo-hyun in Yumi’s Cells
TVING original drama Yumi’s Cells has released an adorable new teaser. Kim Go-eun (The King: Eternal Monarch) plays the titular character, an ordinary office worker stuck in a cycle of habit, without any excitement in her life. One day, Yumi gets the chance to stretch her romantic muscles when someone begins to express interest in her.
In the teaser, Yumi scrolls through a webtoon on a leisurely afternoon. The cut she lands on shows a lone pink cartoon labeled “Love Cell” who wonders: “What does it mean to be lovable?” Suddenly a message pops up from Gu-woong, played by Ahn Bo-hyun (Undercover, Kairos). He asks her, “Shall we meet?” Immediately, her bored expression turns into a shy smile.
Inside of her, Yumi’s literal cells watch as they are apprised of the news of her pending date through a huge screen TV. They exit through her iPad and follow her to aid her efforts and cheer her on. A total of six cute “cells” with their own personalities follow Yumi around as she gets ready for her date.
The leader in pink looks exactly like the “Love Cell” from Yumi’s webtoon from earlier and hurries the team along. One of Yumi’s other cells sounds excited, saying there’s a specific outfit they’ve picked out exactly for this occasion. Her hunger cell lags behind, munching on some chips as he ponders what type of good food they’ll get to enjoy on the date. In the last scene, the cells cheer on Yumi underneath a banner that says: “Yumi fighting!”
Yumi’s Cells is Korea’s first live action drama with 3D animation elements. Adding to the anticipation for this drama, famous voice actors Shim Kyu-hyuk, Park Ji-yoon, Ahn So-yi, Eom Sang-hyun, Lee Jang-won, Jung Jae-heon, Sa Moon-young, Kim Yeon-woo, and Yi Seul have joined Yumi’s Cells, which adds a new layer of quality.
Directed by Lee Sang-yeob and co-written by Kim Yoon-joo and Kim Kyung-ran, the rom-com drama series Yumi’s Cells will begin airing on September 17 on tvN and TVING.
