Yumi’s Cells Challenges Yumi to New Behaviors and Revives Old Dreams in Episodes 9-10 as the Relationship with Woong Balances Between Sweet and Precarious

When I watch Yumi’s Cells I enjoy nearly all of it, but when there are no new episodes I’m not anxiously waiting. I guess it mirrors Yumi’s overall mentality, she puts her all into her life (work, love) but with the things not there she’s not fretting about it. Episodes 9-10 were this past weekend and it wasn’t the relationship imploding bomb with Woong I feared it might be. The two got stronger after dispatching passive-aggressive Sae Yi and Yumi actually flexed new romance muscles in what is best described as a Kim Go Eun acting performance perfection as she attempted to learn various forms of aegyo. I cringed, laughed, and was so impressed with Kim Go Eun, this role absolutely puts her back on my good list after two acting/chemistry misfires with Goblin and The King: Eternal Monarch. These two episodes cement that the story is about Yumi, her thoughts, feelings, dreams, insecurities, and convictions. The men are there to complement but the romance no longer feels like it’s an end goal (for me as the viewer), and I still like Woong when he’s being caring and considerate and new dude Babi for being so thoughtfully supportive and encouraging to Yumi (even if he has ulterior romantic motives). I loved seeing the new cells – writer cell, endorphin cell, etc. – and learning that cells grow big when that motivation becomes important to Yumi at a given time. There’s only 4 more episodes until the end and the drama was slated to have a second season and I hope it does despite the mid 2% ratings.

    • It’s still gain alot of audience. all video on Tving and Iqiyi channel has intense follower with alot of viewers watching. I think it gain alot of follower in Korea. rather than international. the rating doesnt matter

  1. I love this drama so much! KGE really shines here and I love her chemistry with ABH. I really do want them to end up together.

    The subpar ratings don’t matter too much. It’s doing really well on streaming sites like TVING and IQYI. It’s also released earlier on streaming sites so I doubt most of the younger crowd is itching to watch this live.

  2. I am enjoying Yumi’s Cell so much! The ratings are not great but I believe it has receive positive reviews so far. KGE’s acting here is so on point, natural and just plain brilliant! Her chemistry with ABH is amazing (his acting is great too). And the cells are too cute and are characters on their own. I really hope there is Season 2.

    SPOILER :
    I am guessing Season 1 will end with Yumi and Woong breaking up, and the start of her romance with Babi.
