Kim Go Eun Has A Crush On SHINee’s Minho In Upcoming Drama “Yumi’s Cells”
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, while Ahn Bo Hyun will star as the straightforwardly honest game developer Goo Woong. Minho will be playing the role of Chae Woo Gi, a junior colleague of Yumi’s who is handsome, talented, and caring to boot.
In the newly released stills, Yumi gets shy when Woo Gi—her crush and the most popular guy at work—stops by her cubicle to talk to her. As she gazes up at her dashing younger co-worker, she is unable to hide the dreamy look on her face. Meanwhile, Woo Gi sweetly smiles back at her with his signature good-guy charm.
Describing his eagerness to join the drama, Minho remarked, “I really wanted to be a part of this famous webtoon being brought to life.” As for his character, he shared, “Woo Gi is a colleague who is always a source of strength for Yumi, and he’s an upstanding, innocent character who works hard at everything he does.”
Minho went on to express confidence in the drama, teasing, “I think that if you keep an eye on the combination of the cute cells and the cast’s passionate acting, you’ll be able to enjoy the drama more vividly. I hope that this fall, you’ll be able to find healing through ‘Yumi’s Cells.'”
“Yumi’s Cells” premieres on September 17 at 10:50 p.m. KST and will be available with subtitles on Viki.
