Writing An Ending
Episode 14 of Yumi’s Cells Season 2 starts with her despairing over the number of malicious comments regarding her novel. Yumi is worried that there are way too many now, as it would appear Woong has stopped writing his encouraging notes.
Does Yumi thwart her writer’s block?
As for Yumi, she’s struggling with getting an ending nailed down for her book. The real incident though occurs the night before Yi-Da’s wedding. Yumi loses her laptop.
Despite frantically looking for it, she’s unable to find it – meaning there’s no way she can submit her manuscript. And as a result, Writer Cell abandons her Prime Cell position and runs away. That decision comes back to haunt Yumi, especially as some of the other writers and editors are at the wedding. As for Yi-Da-s groom? Well, it’s none other than Ahn Dae-Young!
What happens with Bobby?
Bobby isn’t at the wedding either, given he has an overseas trip. In fact, he’s been assigned to the branch in Singapore. However, on the way he’s stopped by a call from the coffee shop. They’ve found Yumi’s laptop!
He’s not able to make it because of the traffic so instead, he leaves her laptop in a locker at the airport and reminds her that despite them breaking up, he’s still rooting for writer Yumi.
At the airport, the pair run into one another and chat. There, Yumi admits she doesn’t have a boyfriend, with a big smile crossing Bobby’s face. As for Yumi’s ex? Well apparently he’s seeing someone. The truth is, he’s not. He’s still single and not dating, as we find out when he reveals this on the plane.
As for Yumi, Love Cell doesn’t return and despite there being several different occasions where Love could have shown up, she doesn’t. Instead, Yumi’s Fat Cells decide to move right in. Unfortunately, Yumi has writer’s block too and she’s been putting off writing an ending to her book… until Christmas Eve.
Ruby decides they should meet and have a big party, but her words give our writer some big inspiration, encouraging Yumi to finish her manuscript.
How does Yumi react to Bobby?
Yumi is shocked when Woong gets her a new laptop. He’s stubborn and refuses to take it back so Yumi shows up at his office to personally hand it over. Funnily enough, on the desk happens to be all the names of those readers who commented on her novel. Yumi suddenly realizes that he never missed a single upload.
Woong comes bounding in, tripping over, and eventually succumbs to Yumi’s wishes. She agrees to have dinner with him as she’s thankful but not right now. For now, she has her big party, and the gang join together to celebrate.
How does Yumi’s Cells Season 2 end?
After, Yumi struggles to fall asleep. A beaten Love Cell is back after a year’s absence. But why? Is it Woong? Bobby? Or someone new? Whoever it is, it seems Yumi is on the way to being happier again.
The next day, an unknown contact messages Yumi making sure she gets home safely. And their name? Sin Sun Rok.
The Episode Review
So Yumi’s Cells bows out with a conclusive final chapter that sees closure for both Bobby and Woong, while also teasing the potential of these plotlines being carried over to a third season as well.
The idea of Yumi deciding to go it alone and try to find happiness by herself is a great message and something that’s reflective of life too. After all, if you’re not happy with yourself then it’s unlikely you’ll find happiness with someone else.
The idea that love just finds you when you’re least expecting it appears to be something Yumi’s Cells is leaning into, and there’s definitely potential for season 3 to explore that further through Sun-Rok, whom I believe is a part of the webtoon.
Either way though, Yumi’s Cells has been a turbulent ride in this follow-up season but these last few episodes have been pretty good. It’s not perfect, and those shipping Yumi and Bobby or Yumi and Woong will undoubtedly be disappointed. For everyone else though, there’s certainly potential here for Yumi to move into a new chapter of her life and continue this entertaining K-drama.
