Yoo Da-Eun appears as an intern at the same company as Babi in the drama “Yumi’s Cells 2.” She lives on Jeju Island, where Babi has relocated for work, and this makes Yumi nervous. What was Da-Eun like in the original webtoon, “Yumi’s Cells,” and how did she develop feelings for Babi?
In the original story, Babi quits his job and takes over his father’s business, “Babi Street Food.” Babi is looking for a part-time employee for his snack bar, and Da-Eun shows up for an interview. Babi asks when she can start working, and she responds that she can start next week. During the interview, Da-Eun feels as if she has seen Babi before and is very familiar with him.
Da-Eun has never met Babi, but she feels familiar with Babi because she has a crush on him. She is the type of person who easily falls in love, and she recognizes Babi as an attractive man from the moment she meets him. She even believes Babi has a girlfriend, which turns out to be correct.
As Da-Eun begins to work in Babi’s store, Babi’s girlfriend, Yumi, also gets to see her. Da-Eun is in her early twenties and has a sweet face with a bright smile.
Yumi wants to know what Babi thinks of Da-Eun, so she asks Babi, “Isn’t Da-Eun very cute?” “Yes, Da-Eun is cute,” Babi responds. “And Yumi, you’re adorable.”
Yumi feels relieved after hearing what Babi said about her. However, Babi is consistently nice to Da-Eun, which makes Da-Eun like him even more. On a cold day, for example, Babi notices Da-Eun isn’t dressed warmly and lends her the extra jacket he has in the store.
Yumi notices Da-Eun wearing Babi’s clothes as she walks down the street. Yumi asks why Babi lent the jacket to Da-Eun, to which Babi responds, “Well, she’s my only part-time worker, and it’s not good for the store if she catches a cold.”
Although Babi claims he did it for business reasons, Da-Eun appears to be of a different mind. Da-Eun’s heart begins to flutter as he takes Babi’s jacket and puts it on. She starts to wonder if Babi is interested in her, too.
