Yumi’s Emotion Cell is the catalyst for many of the events in this episode. After Yumi and Woong come back from their first couples trip, things are perfect. She makes him lunch, and they go to the movies and kiss freely. All is well. Then the Love Cell decides to travel through one of the kiss wormholes into Woong’s heart to see if he puts Yumi first like she puts him first. This reveals something unexpected that might rock the stable relationship down the line.
Yumi also runs into the ex boyfriend that we saw dump her at the beginning of the drama, and feels pressure to prove that she’s got a new man once she finds out they’re both invited to a classmate’s wedding.
Yes to Yumi’s Love Cell pulling a Mission: Impossible
Yumi’s Love Cell is my favorite, because it always has the best ideas. It sneaks into Woong’s heart when a kiss triggered wormhole opens up in order to figure out if Yumi is his #1 priority. After some Mission: Impossible inspired hijinks and security breaches within Woong, it discovers Sae-yi is #11 on his internal list of priorities— right after meat dumplings (bahaha!) and Yumi is #2. #1 is Woong himself, and has always been.
This came as a bit of a surprise to me (as well as Yumi’s cells), because of how considerate Woong is especially at the beginning of the show. I guess never putting anyone before himself is another kind of defense mechanism, so I can’t wait to learn more about Woong’s backstory. We really don’t know that much about him yet. It’s especially interesting that the Love Cell found a desire to get married, but it’s all the way at the bottom of a shark-infested sea in his heart. What’s that all about?
Yes (kind of) to Yumi dating a hobo?
She’s at the age where all her friends are getting married, and she just ran into her ex, so it’s understandable why she’d want Woong at her classmate’s wedding. Unfortunately, things don’t quite go as planned. Even though Woong kindly makes time in his busy schedule to attend the wedding, he doesn’t have a chance to wash up or change into a suit like Yumi wanted. So to keep her friend’s expectations low, she tells them she’s dating someone who doesn’t care about fashion. Someone who’s busy. Someone who doesn’t shave. Someone like a…hobo? While I don’t think she should’ve said all that, the drama is realistic so the character’s aren’t perfect.
And…it was pretty funny watching Yumi trying to downplay what is very obviously a handsome man.
Yes to Woong showing up
Again, it was very nice of Woong to take time out of his busy schedule to come to Yumi’s friend’s wedding, but when he arrives he overhears Yumi telling her ex that she and him are getting married next year. And right before that, Sae-yi was spewing more poison about how women their age want to get married, and making it seem like Yumi’s a Venus Fly Trap who wants nothing more than to trap Woong. So, Yumi getting flustered and lying to her ex boyfriend about her and Woong getting married doesn’t look good. I hope she gets to explain properly later, because her Emotion Cell got carried away after learning her ex is marrying the woman he cheated on her with.
No to Yumi’s Emotion Cell
It was certainly acting up this episode, and even though it’s realistic with everything going on in Yumi’s life, I hope her relationship with Woong won’t suffer because of it. (It probably will). He might get hurt if he keeps hearing she told everyone he was a hobo, and he’s certainly already rattled that Yumi is lying to people about them getting married.
Oh, Emotion Cell! If only Reason had caught you in time!
All in all, this was a very entertaining episode filled with lots of…emotion. I’m dreading it, but Yumi and Woong’s relationship is probably going to get a little bumpy after this. Especially since the preview for episode 7 shows Yoo Ba-bi aka Bobby (played by Park Jin-young) finally being introduced. Just when I thought I’d gotten a break from love triangles, one appears on the horizon.
