I was pleasantly surprised and enjoyed the first chapters of webtoon Yumi’s Cells, which I checked out when I heard it was getting a K-drama adaptation. There are so many webtoons out there that I don’t have time to wade through the detritus but the ones that get drama versions are usually pretty good. The unfortunate shades to the concept behind Pixar’s movie Inside Out aside, it does present things creatively enough to be different and also has very strong South Korean culturally unique elements including the workplace and relationship dynamics. The first stills are out of female lead Kim Go Eun and she’s…..not the live-action image of the female lead the same way she was exactly the live-action image of the female lead in Cheese in the Trap. The Yumi hairstyle in the webtoon is already 99% impossible to pull off in a live-action but Kim Go Eun especially doesn’t suit it because she’s tall and lively whereas Yumi is this tiny petite thing who avoids conflict. With that said, she can absolutely overcome with acting and especially for those who have not watched the webtoon and have a preconceived image of Yumi. I’m rooting for Kim Go Eun but this is an uphill climb for sure.
