“Yumi’s Cells 2” has dropped a look from filming of Episodes 7 and 8!
Based on the popular webtoon of the same name, “Yumi’s Cells” tells the story of an ordinary office worker named Yumi – from the point of view of the many brain cells in her head controlling her every thought, feeling, and action. Kim Go Eun plays the titular role of Yumi, an ordinary woman who struggles with expressing her feelings, while GOT7’s Jinyoung stars as her charming co-worker-turned-boyfriend Yoo Babi.
The new making video starts with the two leads kicking off filming on Jeju Island. At night, Kim Go Eun and Jinyoung film an adorable scene by the water where they play with sand and engage in deep discussions with their director. During the scene, Yoo Babi gifts Yumi a couple ring for their one year anniversary and the two romantically end off their late-night walk with fireworks and lots of kisses.
The couple is then joined by Shin Ye Eun, Jinyoung’s former “He is Psychometric” co-star. She portrays Da Eun, a cute, young, and friendly intern working with Yoo Babi. Since her character’s charm is that she’s constantly smiling and giggling, Jinyoung tells her before filming, “It must be really hard for you [to keep laughing]. Stay strong, Shin Ye Eun!”
After filming, Shin Ye Eun introduces herself and shares, “Da Eun falls in love very quickly. Since she’s so kind and innocent, she appears as someone who may cause misunderstandings.”
Feeling threatened by Da Eun, Yumi takes the next opportunity to ask Babi when he started developing feelings for her. Ahead of filming, Jinyoung explains to the director, “Since she’s so serious, I’m thinking about it really seriously too, but [it’s like Babi] seriously can’t remember.” The director responds, “You have to really show that you’re trying to remember.”
When Jinyoung expresses his understanding of the situation, Kim Go Eun jokingly adds, “That is the point. Do you know now? How women feel?”
Later, new cast members join the set including Jeon Suk Ho, who plays Yumi’s publisher and former college classmate who had a one-sided crush on her. Kim Go Eun also gets to meet Shim Gyu Hyuk, the voice actor for Yumi’s reason cell who plays the owner of the bookstore where Yumi works, and Park Ji Yoon, who voices many different cells including Yumi’s emotion cell, and plays Yumi’s writing professor.
