Sidus Animation Studios is collaborating with Studio N, a subsidiary of Naver Webtoon, to co-produce an animated feature based on the popular webtoon “Yumi’s Cells” (written and illustrated by Donggun Lee).
“Yumi’s Cells” is the story of an average 31 year-old office worker named Yumi and her everyday work and love life told both emotionally and hilariously in one of Korea’s most famous and beloved comics.
The story is told both from Yumi’s perspective and within her mind as her thoughts are personified into characters called ‘cells.’ Cartoonist Donggun Lee brings a unique sensitivity to his writing and has received an enormous acclaim from audiences who have sympathized with Yumi and Lee’s other characters since the serial’s first release in 2015.
“Yumi’s Cells” has accumulated over 3,000,000,000 total views and remains the number one top viewed Saturday webtoon.
With its top tier production capacities, Sidus Animation Studios brings the popular webtoon to life as an animated feature for adult audiences.
Yumi’s Cells is slated for release in 2022.
