‘Yumi’s Cells’ Kim Go Eun and Ahn Bo Hyun showed off their extraordinary chemistry in their October pictorial for ELLE.
In the interview that followed, the two of them talked about their recently premiered series Yumi’s Cells. The series tells the story of an ordinary office worker named Yumi and her brain cells.
When asked about playing roles of similar ages, Kim shared, “Just being the same age as the characters naturally creates similarities. As an actor, it’s a benefit. I asked my friends working at an office this and that, such as what’s on an office desk and what the existence of bosses means to them.”
Ahn commented, “It is unusual for cells produced with 3D animation to appear, but honestly, Yumi and Woong’s story itself is realistic everyday life. When listening to the stories of people around me who liked the original webtoon, they shared that they felt like they grew up together with Yumi.” The actor then stressed how anyone could relate to the story.
When asked if there is a “cell” they want, Kim answered, “I admire people who work hard every day, whether it’s exercising or studying. Even if I’m full of enthusiasm, it tends to cool down quickly, so I need ‘Diligent Cells.’” Ahn chose “Humor Cell” because he’s not “amusing on an ordinary basis.”
The two also talked about when they begin to feel closer to someone. Kim said, “When something happy or sad happens to the other person, there are times when my heart is completely immersed in that situation and emotions. This is the moment I realize that I really like this person.”
Ahn shared, “The older I get, the more difficult it is to tell someone about my worries. Still, some people tell me about their difficulties and personal stories. That’s when I feel like I’ve gotten close to them.”
