Yumi’s love-cell has fallen into a coma following the shock of a failed relationship, and the drama will depict Yumi’s growth and transformation as her cells work hard to wake up the love cell.
The game developer Goo Woong, who thinks with the simple algorithm of “yes or no.” He’s an engineer to the core, and although he doesn’t speak emotionally, he’ll wake up Yumi’s love-cell with his simple and honest personality.
Ruby is an adorable fool. Although she’s a fox when it comes to love and possesses various relationship skills, she’s an energetic and affectionate young woman who knows how to take care of her people. Sae Yi, who has perfect visuals and skills and is full of ambition.
Sae Yi dreams of becoming the best game art director, and she’s a figure everyone is jealous of. With her ambiguous friendship with Goo Woong, she appears as Yumi’s love rival.

Tuning in here because of Kim Go Eun casting new :p 

 

I peek through the webtoon, hmmm, interesting but gonna be a challenge to translate it to drama. Remind me of inside out movie by Pixar. 

 

I wonder if Kim Go Eun herself is gonna act our all of her brain cells (emotional, detective, naughty, etc) It won't be an easy feat, but knowing KGE duality, she enjoys these kind of works when she have to portray multiple characters in one series.

I was reading they gonna do live action and animation. So I guess they gonna have animated brain cells. :)

@partyonand @Jillia Hoping this time the writer comes through. Hopefully they can adapt the webtoon in to a drama effectively without loosing its essence and considering its so popular I will not want any backlashes from its fans. I don't know how they're going to cram up the whole 500 odd episodes into a 16 ep drama though. I hope and pray it will become a successful one. Anyone here know, on which channel its going to broadcasted? I know its been produced by Studio Dragons, but will it be on Netflix?

I heard it's either tvn or jtbc. If it's on jtbc, there's a chance she'll do promotion in knowing brothers which I would love to happen. I'm okay with either, as long as it's not public broadcasting channel (yes, sbs I'm still glaring at you :angry:). I also read that great chance it will be on netflix since studio dragon has some partnership with netflix involving kdrama productions.

 

Edit: Found the source for the said partnership between netflix and sd:

Can't wait for Yumi's Cells. :fullofhearts:

Its produced by Studio Dragon so hopefully it will be broadcast on Netflix too (and aired in tvn/jtbc not public broadcasting especially the S one<_<)

 

I'm quite nervous for KGE, its really highly anticipate cause the webtoon its so popular, there's even exhibition for it. I read the early chapters (and still reading it), its really interesting and like you guys, I'm really curious on how they gonna depict all the cells.

 

Speaking of writer, going to be honest here didn't fully enjoy the writer previous work esp the last one... hmm:huh:. Anyway, really hope the writer will do well this time and give justice to the webtoon. 

 

More importantly, I hope the drama become massive hit & success esp in SK for Kim Go Eun's sake. 

 

KIM GO EUN HWAITING!!:heartxoxo:

Hi! 

 

KGE's drama The King: Eternal Monarch screened on SBS in 2020, it's with Lee Min Ho ;) 

 

To be honest, once I started reading the webtoon, I had the same concerns. There is much more brain activity than to the story. I think the cells shouldn't be too prominent, otherwise it will get boring in a drama format. For webtoon it's very entertaining, but think about all the animations on screen...

Judging by your username I bet you did :D:D:D. I guess we'll be camping here too while waiting for news. 

 

My concern is also the execution. I'm still at chapter 112 and from what I see, most scenes involve the cells so I'm not sure how they'll divide the screen time and show the transition. I heard there's also an animated feature film to be released on 2022 so I guess the drama will have more yumi and the animated film will be more on the cells? I know the writers got mixed reactions but how about the director? I think the director will play larger part here since the story is pretty set already they just have to nail the execution and maintain the entertainment value of webtoon. I know there are 4 love interests but will there be some love triangle ala CITT or start up in later chapters? I hope not and if there's none I hope they don't add. I don't want the focus to shift to the love triangle instead of yumi.

@gutterlandoh I will be very happy if that is true. I read the same in some tweets, but couldn't find the info about netflix and tvn in any of the official articles.

@Miss PizzaYes I want it to be huge success in SK and internationally. 

@agenth @gutterlandI also hope they pay more attention to Yumi's life than the animation part, but they can't vary much from the original story, right?  Will all those cells be shown as mini 'ggone'?Curious to see how they will execute it without looking so much cartoonish.

@MineunGoalsMe too waiting for the leads to be announced. Considering it to be centered around her, I guess there's high chances that it won't be any popular MLs. I am fine with anyone who can act and compatible to KGE, popular or not.

The thought that I will get to see her normal clothes itself is making me happy, no more 2size large outfits plz. I hope she get a good hairstylist and they style her similar to Yumi in the webtoon with long bangs and straight hair. 

Will there be a separate stylist for the drama or will she use her own?

@Ms.sunshine

You have read my mind

I am also thinking any populer celebrity will not do a role centered around a female protagonist

Iam dying to see her in normal clothes..

She wore cute dresses in CITT after that all movies/dramas she acted wearing oversized baggy clothes

I am currently reading 250+ number episodes of Yumi's cells and yumi's outfit is getting better day by day
