The director of the TVING series “Yumi’s Cells” discussed season two of the drama, revealing what viewers can expect. He also discussed his filming experiences with the two main cast members, Kim Go-Eun and Park Jin-Young.
“The keywords of season 2 are ‘excitement‘ and ‘growth,'” said the director of “Yumi’s Cells 2.” “Yumi’s challenge of overcoming sadness from her previous relationship and moving on to a new phase of life begins,” he continues. “Babi approaches Yumi, who has a completely different charm than Woong. Yumi is excited by Babi’s honest and outspoken personality,” he added.
According to the director, if Yumi’s relationship with Woong was like a friendship, her relationship with Babi is like a romance between youths. “Rather than being conscious of others, it is a romance that includes the process of focusing on one’s feelings more honestly, making each other excited, and having a new dream,” he explained.
The director said of the lead actors’ chemistry, “The two actors communicated a lot with each other while filming on the spot.” “When I looked at the two actors closely monitoring each other’s actions and exchanging opinions in a low voice, I felt like I was looking at Yumi and Babi,” he added
“Actor Park Jin-Young’s eyes were deep and attractive,” he went on to say. “When he looked at actress Kim Go-Eun, I felt he was in love with her,” he said. “There were many processes of filming with new stimulation through the opponent’s actions,” the director explained. “Those processes brought a much deeper flow in the relationship between the two characters.”
Finally, the director revealed what fans can look forward to most in “Yumi’s Cells 2.” “I think you might fall in love with Babi,” he said, adding, “The activities of Babi’s adorable cells are a bonus.” “The slightly different story from the original webtoon will bring new tension and fun,” he added.
