‘Yumi’s Cells’ Season 2 takes the female lead character on a journey of finding new love

Set to premiere on June 10, the second season of the hit K-drama will pick up where the first season ended. Yu-mi has a breakup that defies the rules of a K-drama romance. But fans already saw the small hints of Yu-mi developing a relationship with Babi. In the first season, Babi goes through his breakup but starts to crush on Yu-mi but does not explicitly say so to keep a boundary until she is ready.

In the new season’s trailers, fans see Babi putting the moves on Yu-mi and making his affection for her clear. Fans see it all from the “falling down the stairs” trope and Yu-mi’s cells going into hyper drive rooting for Babi. The trailers also hint at Yu-mi rediscovering her passion for writing, but the new main trailer for Yumi’s Cells Season 2 reveals new characters that are vital to her future love story.
