[Upcoming Drama 2022] Yumi's Cells Season 2 유미의 세포들 - Kim Go Eun, Ahn Bo Hyun, Park Jin Young - premieres June 10th


Recommended Posts

Agreed. It’s so true because I haven’t ever seen anyone from JHIs fandom bash her and they did so much press and cute couple shots together.  Now I only see Choi Minho as Soonrook. He has the cute curly hair and cuteness.  Plus, they didn’t get much time in canola together and they seem to be friendly and look great together. I’d like her to do a drama with her friend Suho too but he’s in the army.

GOT 7 is the only K-pop band that I have listened to 'cos of Jackson and their group dynamics. The only drama I saw of Jin Yoing was LOTBS, as a teenage version of LMH. I think 'cos he joined BH there's a possibility of he getting casted.

I think he can pull of Soonrok.

I binged read this webtoon because of this casting news. And boy I was hooked. I was so invested in the character, rootings for ships and sad when ships failed. 

I am really hoping they do it right. It's quite a challenging project - it could be a meaningful witty slice-of-life style of drama or it could ended up being veryyyy childlish and over the top, or it could turn out to be like a typical harem series...lol.


I'm happy KGE got casted as the lead. I wonder if they will follow the original story or re-invent it to the 2 guys 1 girl typical triangle format for K-romance. 

Is it worrying that I don't know the assigned writers well to trust them for Yumi's cells? 

Ran to this little fan-made video. SO CUTE 


I totally forgot about Ryu Jun Yeol, he would fantastic for Woong!

@YoyoyoI can see you're really rooting for Choi Minho to be Soonrok:joy: Where did your post with with Minho's YT song go?:blink:

Like @kaqueskisaid I would like Ryu Jun Yeol to be Woong especially considering the fact that he and Ggone are real life friends and they look good together. 

So we have Choi Minho/PJY as Soonrok

LJS/Ryu Jun Yeol/Kim Ji hoon as Woong

Who was recommended for Babi?

Why is it taking so long to announce the MLs? GGone's casting news was a month ago.

From the web to your TV screen — a look at adaptations to come


February 3, 2021

Netflix’s “Sweet Home,” OCN’s “The Uncanny Counter” and tvN’s “True Beauty” is just some of the content receiving worldwide recognition for gripping narratives and universes that derive from original webtoons. 
"Yumi’s Cells," a webtoon which was published for more than five years and ended with 512 episodes, is the next in line for a remake and fans are anticipating how their favorite two-dimensional characters will come alive through screens.  
According to an online research company Research First, which surveyed 1,000 participants aged between 20 to 50 for two days from Jan. 25, the most anticipated series this year is “Yumi’s Cells” with 11.3 percent singling out the series as the television adaption of an original webtoon that they are most looking forward to. In joint second place were Naver webtoons' “The Dexluxe Taxi” and “The Remarried Empress” with 10.8 percent, followed by “Frightening Cohabitation” (8.7%), “All of Us Are Dead” (7.8%) and “D.P” (7.1%).  
Below is a wrap-up of some of the most popular webtoon-turned-television series which are scheduled to air this year.  



1. Yumi’s Cells

Actor Kim Go-eun was cast for the role of Yumi in the TV adaptation of the Naver webtoon which garnered more than 3.2 billion views on the platform, written and drawn by cartoonist Lee Dong-geun.  
The story itself revolves around Kim Yumi, an office worker in her 30s, whose body is controlled by some 200 cells who are busy controlling her flow of thoughts and ultimately her behavior. Although she’s clumsy about expressing her own feelings she makes the little things matter in her life through her relationships and work, and the variety of emotions and worries that spring from her efforts can be related to anyone who wants to love and feel a sense of achievement in their life.  
To accurately portray the tiny cells in Yumi, the television series will be a fusion of animation and live-action.  
The screenwriters are Song Jae-jung, who was behind MBC sitcom series “High Kick!” (2006-2007) and tvN drama series “Memories of the Alhambra” (2018-2019), Kim Yoon-ju, behind MBC series “Find Me in Your Memory” (2020), and rookie writer Kim Kyung-ran. Producer Lee Sang-yeop of tvN series “Familiar Wife” (2018), MBC series “Shopaholic Louis” (2016) and “King’s Daughter Soo Baek-hyang” (2013) will take the helm of production.  
The filming is to begin in the first half of this year.

Webtoons transform into Korean dramas


By Avery Alexander — Staff Writer

Published: February 18, 2021


Webtoons, a form of fun and nifty virtual comics designed to be read on the go, have become a fairly regular part of Western pop culture. Today, this medium, which was originally popular in Korea and other East Asian countries, continues to evolve. As the webtoon industry changes, it has the potential to help bring Asian entertainment further into the foreground for the rest of the world.


As with other aspects of Korean popular culture —  like skin care, K-pop, food and makeup — once the market for webtoons became known in the United States, Americans quickly grew interested in the industry...


In December 2020 alone, WEBTOON released two major K-drama adaptations — “True Beauty,” released on the streaming service Viki, and Netflix original “Sweet Home.” WEBTOON doesn’t show signs of slowing down, with other adaptations already planned for the coming year. One highly anticipated show is an adaptation of “Yumi’s Cells,” a comic that has over 500 thousand readers...




Yumi's cells will come out in
aired in 2021






Achieved only 3.2 billion views. One of the typical Naver webtoon works, <Yumi's Cells> is a webtoon that empathizes with reality that happily mirrors the story of Yumi, an average worker in her 30s, through the eyes of the cells in her head. Kim Go Eun, who showed a high level of sync with the webtoon character with acting only as Hong Seol in "Cheese in Trap," was cast as Yumi. "It will be a joyful, reality-sympathetic drama that takes advantage of the beauty of the original work, which distinguishes the real world in which Yumi lives and Yumi's head in which her cells live." Production begins airing in 2021.
