Starring South Korean actors Kim Go Eun and Park Jinyoung “Yumi’s Cells 2” is back on track. It’s almost been about a month since the k-drama premiered. Streaming two episodes every Friday the show has now reached up to six episodes being released.
The show starts from where it left off in season 1 where Yumi (Kim Go Eun) and Woong (Ahn Bo Hyun) have now parted ways. Yumi and her cells try to get over her broken heart and are seen moving on from her past of Woong. And now we can see Yoo Babi (Park Jinyoung) who was regarded as the second lead taking over the show and him being his new love interest of Yumi.
Episode 1 however deals with the post heartbreaking phase, episode 2 takes the smooth pace with Babi confessing his love and desire to date Yumi but is being turned down. But it doesn’t take her that long to warm up to him and start feeling something for him. Kim Go Eun gives her perfect shot while playing Yumi and the way she fits the traits of Yumi are commendable.
Just like every working woman who deals with life and emotions at the same time. Trying to move on from a terrible heartbreak her emotions are currently all over the place. The specific trait of her character that makes it relatable is that the makers of the show have not shown anything special happening in her life.
It is all about the stages a person has to go through in life be it from eating a lot of junk food to getting drunk and crying all over what went wrong Yumi does all of it. And when the moment comes when Babi asks her out and confesses his feelings it doesn’t take her a while to reject him but then she starts to get to know more about him.
The Adorable Chemistry
The on-screen chemistry shared by Park Jinyoung and Kim Go Eun is remarkable and highly adorable. The Got7 singer has quite made his space from his first drama till now and has now become quite grown as an actor. His charming personality catches all the attention at Babi be it in season 1 and now in season 2.
The situation Babi and Yumi are currently dealing with kind of brings a feeling of angst. There is also a feeling of heartfelt potential romance building up on the other hand but at the same time, there’s Yumi who’s trying to overcome her recent breakup.
But, Why ‘Cells’?
The drama titled ‘cells’ refers to animated cells that discuss Yumi’s cells which are a bunch of dramatic ones and that’s what connects the show to the audience. Every emotion depicts a cell and it’s often that they come together as a common interest which now is Yoo Babi.
Every cell has a comical expression and way of expression. The cells who disliked Babi end up liking him and which flutters Yumi’s heart when she sees him crying in the rain. All of such scenes are a treat to watch. The K-drama is of complete interest and comedy that goes hand in hand.
