tving has shared a behind-the-scenes look at the teaser and poster filming for the upcoming drama “Yumi’s Cells”!
Based on a popular webtoon, “Yumi’s Cells” is about an ordinary office worker named Yumi—from the point of view of the many brain cells in her head controlling her every thought, feeling, and action. Kim Go Eun stars as the titular Yumi, an ordinary woman who struggles with expressing her feelings, and Ahn Bo Hyun co-stars as Goo Woong, a warmhearted but straightforwardly honest game developer.
The behind-the-scenes video kicks off with Kim Go Eun showing her bright smile for the camera as the crew shoots the poster for the drama. In an interview, she introduces her character as, “Someone who works really hard at the job she’s been given.” Next, Ahn Bo Hyun shows his character’s shy, scruffy, but charming appeal for his own poster and describes Goo Woong as, “He’s very unique and is clear about his own perspective. Right now, he has a big crush on Yumi.”
The video moves on to the two leading actors filming their poster and teaser together. Kim Go Eun says, “Our drama combines live-action and animation, so we have to be even more careful while acting.” (Yumi’s brain cells will appear as animated figures in the drama.) Ahn Bo Hyun said, “The atmosphere on set is really good. I feel like I’m the only one who looks like he’s in a sageuk [historical drama], but they said that this is how he looked in the webtoon.” (This refers to his character’s facial hair.)
Ahn Bo Hyun and Kim Go Eun film their heart-fluttering “couple” teaser together, only to burst out laughing as soon as they look at each other. Their characters get shy and awkward as soon as they inch a tiny bit closer on the sofa, and Kim Go Eun says, “It feels like we’re in the Joseon Dynasty!” They burst out laughing again on the next take and Ahn Bo Hyun jokes, “Why are you acting like an amateur?” and Kim Go Eun retorts, “I am an amateur!” She then playfully complains, “Why are you turning your head so slowly?” Even after they get the take right, they can’t stop laughing when the director shouts, “Cut.”
