Kim Go-eun (The King: Eternal Monarch) has been confirmed to lead the drama adaptation of the hit webtoon “Yumi’s Cells” (literal translation).
Based on the hit webtoon of the same name, “Yumi’s Cells” is about the life of Yu-mi (to be played by Kim Go-eun), an average office employee, but told from the point of view of her brain cells controlling every emotion and action. In reality, Yu-mi finds it hard to express her own feelings, but she will eventually find happiness in the mundane things through her relationships both in her career and love life.
The upcoming drama adaptation will be directed by Lee Sang-yeob (Familiar Wife, Shopping King Louie). The script will be written by the group of Song Jae-jung (Memories of the Alhambra), Kim Yoon-joo (Find Me in Your Memory), and rookie writer Kim Kyung-ran.
No network and release date have been announced as of writing, but the drama will begin filming at the first half of 2021.
