'Yumi's Cells' is a drama adaption of a popular webtoon of the same name that was serialized on Naver, and was penned by Song Jae Jung, who also wrote 'Memories of the Alhambra'.
'Yumi's Cells' expresses the story of Yumi, an ordinary office worker in her 30s, from the perspective of the cells in her head, and the webtoon has received favorable reviews for its fresh production and setting. In particular, the story of the three men Yumi meets will convey sympathy. Among them, Park Jin Young is aimed for the role of Yumi's second boyfriend, Yoo Babi.
'Yumi's Cells' will be created as a pleasant and realistic drama, utilizing the charm of the original webtoon. Actress Kim Go Eun has confirmed her appearance as the main character, office worker Yumi.
