Kim Go Eun Confirmed To Star In New Drama Adaptation Of Hit Webtoon
Kim Go Eun will be starring in a new drama adaptation of a popular webtoon!
On December 31, Kim Go Eun was confirmed to be playing the lead in the upcoming drama “Yumi’s Cells” (literal translation). Based on the hit webtoon of the same name, “Yumi’s Cells” will tell the story of an ordinary office worker named Yumi—from the point of view of the many brain cells in her head controlling her every thought, feeling, and action.
Kim Go Eun will be playing the titular role of Yumi, an ordinary woman who struggles with expressing her feelings. As she experiences growth in both her love life and her career, she learns to find happiness in the small joys of everyday life.
Reflecting on the popularity of the original webtoon, the actress commented, “I think the reason that the love story of the ordinary woman Yumi was able to make so many people laugh and cry over such a long period of time was because of how relatable it was. I’m looking forward to her future journey.”
The upcoming drama adaptation will be helmed by Lee Sang Yeob, the director of “Familiar Wife” and “Shopping King Louie,” and co-written by “Memories of the Alhambra” writer Song Jae Jung, “Find Me in Your Memory” writer Kim Yoon Joo, and newcomer Kim Kyung Ran.
“Yumi’s Cells” is currently scheduled to begin filming sometime in the first half of 2021.
