Writing about Yumi’s Cells is hard because it doesn’t lend itself to any singular bucket of good, bad, weird, etc. Six episodes in it’s a layer cake, a beautifully constructed one with plenty of surprises but it’s not the full meal we may want for a balanced diet. Episodes 5-6 continue to move the Yumi-Woong romance light speed ahead, with the usual second female lead passive-aggressive intrusion and the classic poop moment K-dramas can’t help but insert (pun intended). The cells continue to be as entertaining as the central leads’ romance and each new cell arrival brings comedic fodder aplenty, though I’m sad travel cell died young. Kim Go Eun‘s chemistry with Ahn Bo Hyun is on fire, it’s the best I’ve ever seem from her since with Seo Kang Joon in Cheese in the Trap, and one of my biggest issues with her last two dramas was lack of opposite sex chemistry with her male leads and that’s not a problem here. The ending to episode 6 points to the leads and us viewers needing to take a cold shower. Okay, maybe for us but for them with manner cell and cranky cell out of the way they can just have as much fun before needing the glass shower later. I continue to enjoy this drama but can’t help with knowing that it’s really about Yumi’s love journey with multiple male leads and that puts a hamper on my innate desire to ship Yumi-Woong for a happily ever after.
