Yumi’s Cells is an ongoing South Korean television series that releases two episodes every Friday. The show revolves around Kim Yumi, who is just a regular and average office worker, and we see her life and her regular typical day happenings through the point of view of the cells in her brain. These cells are responsible for making her everyday life happen. The show is a lot like the Pixar movie, Inside Out. We see how the various cells like the Reason cell, love cell, sensitivity cell, and various hobby cells as well work together to make Kim Yumi’s life possible. The show employs a unique perception, and the animation is very magnificent as well. The show is very relatable in the portrayal of its daily life struggle with emotions.
For now, we have a total of eight episodes out for the second season that started on the 10th of June.

Her good mood is ruined by paranoia and worry. When Da Eun-Yi walks away, Bobby responds honestly, telling Yumi that she’s cute but that Yumi is the one who’s actually adorable.
