Yumi's Cells is a webtoon originally published on the Korean comic site Naver. It's written and illustrated by Dong-Gun Lee (Hangul: 이동건). An official English translation is provided on LINE Webtoon.

Synopsis Edit

Inside Yumi, a 32 year old office worker, lives thousands of tiny blue-hooded cells that control her every mood, thought, and action.

Summary Edit

Yumi likes her younger colleague, Wook. A lot of things prevent her from pursuing him like being insecure about her age and her love rival, Rubi. Though, Yumi's cells are willing to do anything for Yumi's happiness.

Wook seems to be interested in her too; wanting to talk to her and go out with her. Yumi becomes overjoyed at the thought that he would confess his love. But it's all a setup for him to ask her if she wanted to go on a blind date with his friend. Yumi also finds out that he is homosexual -- so she didn't even have a chance.

Yumi becomes depressed over this, and her blind date with Wook's friend, Woong, seems to be a total bust.

As Yumi becomes more and more stressed, she faints, and Woong carries her and runs to a nearby hospital. He buys her a hoodie and when Yumi wakes up, she starts to take more interest in Woong.
