Hi, I am Jass k. I discuss some of the hottest currently airing kdramas on this site in form of reviews an/or recaps, join me in the discussion~


  1. As somebody who has read the webtoon, “Yumi’s cells” (ending included) has followed the webtoon to a tee. So if you like the webtoon, you like the ending in the drama, but I was actually supersurprised that they did not change anything, unlike other dramas based on the webtoons, like, say The True Beauty. We’ll see if the Season 2 will continue following the webtoon as well. Btw, I saw somewhere that the season 2 starts on 31 of December 2021, but maybe it is still unconfirmed.

  2. Yes i like this drama very much. I like the ending so it has to come up with season 2 and i hope there could be season 3. I like their chemistry their both versatile as an actors respectively. I hope we’ll see you on the big screen as well. Love you both. Love, francy from Philippines.

  3. I like the drama. It’s funny and at the same time heart warming. Anybody can relate to it. Kim Go Eun is very natural. She’s always consistent in her good acting. I also enjoy watching the cells. They’re so cute. I hope Season 2 will be released earlier.

  4. I still don’t get why Woong broke up with Yumi. It didn’t explain why, since Woong made Yumi first, and didn’t think marriage was such a horrible idea. Too left field for me.

    1. Have you watched the whole episodes of the drama? I think the cells have dropped a few infos here and there. There were some scenes depicting the predicaments of both Yumi and Woong. We also need to understand it is a ‘slice of life’ story of everyday’s lives. Each of them have different POV in life as do us✌✌✌

    2. It will he explained in the Season 2..No spoiler, but he did it for a reason (typical “Woong’s reason” let’s say:)). I know why he did it because I read the webtoon. They left it unclear on purpose. Patience, Season 2 is coming soon…

  5. This drama is so good. I hope that they continue to create the 2nd season even it receives low ratings in Korea. They should consider the international fans who loved this drama. The actors done well with their characters, the animation is so fun to watch, and the story follows the original webtoon story.

    1. There is going to be a Second Season definitely as reported prior to the commencement of the drama. It was even stated at the end of the finale scene.

  6. Enjoyed the series. Somehow you can relate to behavioural patterns. Both makes an excellent match but communication failed here with pride being the ‘culprit’. Same in true life. If Woong could open up, she would support him in his career path then your relationship will be based on trust, hope n love.

  7. I love Romantic Comedies and this sure had the humorous side to it especially with the animation and the cells reactions. Then it turned into a Melodrama with some sad emotions. You lite up my day and I was always excited for the next episode. Yumi’s Cell brought happiness and the way YUMI and Woong loved each other was so romantic, even when they disagreed they always had happy endings. I love the Chemistry and their acting was outstanding. Then came episode 12. 13 and 14, you lost me why couldn’t they communicate or show more of emotions to each other. Generally people who have as much love as they did would fight to keep their relation. I just saw pure pride and even through you did highlight using the cells some of Woongs feelings I could not understand it. I look to Korean Dramas because they feel my heart with enjoyment and our not as depressing as some of US Romantic dramas. I never read the webtoon so did not expect this type of ending. I will only watch Season 2 to hopefully get more understanding on Woongs feelings and want a happy ending for YUMI and Woong.

  8. Loved it and so excited for Season 2! I’m just going with the flow on this one and trusting the creators. Kdrama are such good escapism. Love them.

  9. I really love the drama and I am really excited for season 2. Although can someone enlighten me why Woong is Yumi’s third serious relationship when she only had one ex and the next one is Woong already?

  10. I rarely watch romance drama, but I get interested in this one because my mom watched it. I like the message that they show, try to love yourself before you love others. And I like how Yumi change from a girl who gave everything to someone she loved to making her own self the number one priority. I was feed up with over the top cheezy romance, but this one, is closer to reality. Not all story end in a good way, and I cannot wait for season 2. Would like to hear what you think about the show though, cause in My Name review you said you didn’t watch this one

  11. I don’t think Woong’s business took off and got an investment contract. I think it was just an excuse so that Yumi won’t cling to him out of pity. He doesn’t want to drag Yumi. His stupid pride decided to lie.
