In the tenth episode of the drama “Yumi’s Cells 2,” Woong learns from his colleague Louis that his ex-girlfriend Yumi has become a writer and has published a book. He goes to the bookstore to look for Yumi’s book, “Muse, My Love,” and he is excited to see Yumi’s picture as the author of the book. He buys every copy available to support Yumi.
The audience is interested in knowing the content of “Muse, My Love,” which Yumi and her colleague Control Z have worked hard on. Since the drama only shows the cover page, we looked to the original webtoon “Yumi’s Cells” for a hint.
Yumi has been working on her book for over a year since she became a writer. Julie Literature’s editor-in-chief, Ahn Dae-Young, is in charge of publishing Yumi’s book. He wants to get another writer’s take on Yumi’s draft, so he shows it to Isabelle.
Isabelle is a best-selling author who has been having difficulty coming up with new ideas. Yumi’s draft impresses her, and she decides to write a similar story about it.
When Isabelle publishes “Isabelle’s Short Stories,” Ahn Dae-Young discovers that the new book is based on Yumi’s ideas. He runs into Yumi and apologizes.
When Yumi discovers that Isabelle’s novel is based on her draft, she thinks of her ex-boyfriend, Babi, because he serves as the basis for the book’s plot. Yumi recalls that when she first met Babi, she had the impression that he would not be the person she would eventually be with.
What’s ironic is that Yumi finds Isabelle’s writings superior to hers, even when they’re based on the same idea. She learns from it, and it helps her write better in her new story, “Muse, My Love.”
Her third boyfriend in the webtoon, Soon-Rok, inspires her to create a new character for her new story. Soon-Rok enjoys playing situational games with Yumi. Yumi figures she can create good characters again after watching him play different people each time.
“You are going to be the new main character of my book from now on,” she tells Soon-Rok.
This episode with Soon-Rok was titled “Muse, My Love” in the original story, implying that Yumi wrote the story based on her relationship with Soon-Rok in her book “Muse, My Love.” Yumi marries Soon-Rok because he is her muse.
In the drama “Yumi’s Cells,” Yumi’s book “Muse, My Love” is published before Soon-Rok appears. So, if her previous relationships with Woong or Babi inspired her to write the novel, she may end up with either of them. Who will serve as Yumi’s muse? We’ll find out in the remaining episodes of “Yumi’s Cells 2.”
