Yu-Mi Kim, as she appears in the anime
金 由美 (Hanja)
|First Appearance||Manga: Chapter 2|
(5 feet 4.5 inches)
|Favourite Food||Kimchi jjigae|
|Affiliations||West Genetics (Physics teacher, training instructor)|
Numbers (former member) Chevalier (Captain)
Yu-Mi Kim is an instructor at West Genetics and a former member of the Numbers.
Born in Korea, Yu-Mi was Student Council President during her student days at West Genetics. She is also a veteran of the 8th Nova Clash, when she fought alongside Elize Schmitz and the late Kazuha Aoi as part of the elite Numbers unit. In the present day, she serves as a physics teacher and training instructor at West Genetics. She holds the rank of Captain in the Chevalier.
Yu-Mi is a very buxom woman in her 20's, with short dark brown hair that extends down to her neck, while the rest comes further down into her face in several bangs as well as leaving her ears viewable at the sides and brown eyes. She is known for her buxom figure and large breasts which have been recorded as the largest throughout the entire series thus far. Ironically, she has a weakness when touched there.
Her outfit consists of a pale blue, long-sleeved shirt with a navy blue tie and matching skirt, accompanied with long brown stockings and a pair of black, high-heeled shoes.
Yu-Mi Kim is a very proud, strong-minded and dedicated woman, as evidenced in the opening chapter of Freezing: Zero, which sometimes put her at odds with her then roommate, Elize Schmitz. She's also very honest about her feelings, though it sometimes gets her into trouble, as it did with Kazuha, whose carefree personality starkly contrasted with Yu-Mi's own. She's also very proud of her Korean heritage, and became good friends with Mi-Ryung Baek, another Korean Pandora, during her student years.
Her personality didn't change much after the 8th Nova Clash, when she retired as a Numbers and became a teacher at West Genetics, her Alma mater. She and Elize seem to get along better as teachers than they did as students.

Yu-mi is seen greeting the Valkyries, Satella, Rana, and Kazuya saying she purposely came late to allow them to greet each other. She then shows them the rest of team 13, Cassie, Roxanne, and Charles with Su-Na being the leader of the group. She later meets Su-Na at a bar and congratulates her on being appointed as Platoon 13 commander. Yu-Mi comments that Su-Na is perfect for the job, but was surprised that she accepted since Chevalier's strongest soldier is usually lazy. Su-Na laughs at her senpai, and says she wishes to train some juniors while she's still young, which makes Yu-Mi somewhat uncomfortable. Su-Na reveals that the other reason she accepted the position was because the "Professor" wanted to come to Japan, surprising Yu-Mi. She and Su-Na are later seen greeting Atsuko Seiga. Atsuko comments on Yu-Mi's past as a member of Numbers, and shows the two Korean Pandora the Felyan Generators that are to be used for the joint-training exercise.

She is then explained to by Elize about the Valkyries and how Gengo had created a fourth state of matter. She is later seen enraged at the fact that there is multiple N1 on the screen. She is then seen watching a burst of energy on the screen asking if those people were really Pandora.
- Main article: Busters Arc
Yu-Mi and Elize attend Sister Margaret's debriefing of West Genetics students concerning the 12th Nova Clash. They display doubt that the students will be fooled by Margaret's obvious attempts to conceal information. Afterwards, they watch over the students as they express doubt about what they had been told. Elize comments that she can't believe all survivors of the recent clash were quarantined. Yu-Mi explains that it was necessary, as any information leaks could cause a panic. Elize says that a solid course of action must be decided and Yu-Mi laments that they don't have anyone who can do that.
Although not entirely clear yet, during her tuition years in Freezing: Zero she has been observed, being able to deploy Pandora-Mode. She's renowned for her immense strength in combat, and coupled with her imposing figure, earned her the somewhat derogatory nickname "Yu-Mi the Gorilla." Her Volt Weapon, "Getsurō" (月浪, Moon Wave), is a lance.
Elize and Yu-Mi fought together in the 8th Nova Clash along with Kazuha as part of the elite Numbers unit. They are very close colleagues and are often seen talking together.
In 'Freezing: Zero' they also shared a room together during their senior/third year, Elize would often mock Yu-Mi and her breast size, and sometimes grope her. She also called her a "Titty Monster Gorilla" after first encountering Kazuha Aoi.
Kazuha, Elize, and Yu-Mi all fought together in the 8th Nova Clash as part of the elite Numbers unit. Yu-Mi deeply respects Kazuha and seems to worry about Kazuya Aoi's brother's' safety, to the point of threatening Satellizer after the latter's fight with Miyabi that she would kill her should Satellizer cause any harm to Kazuya.
Yu-Mi and Su-Na seem to have met some time before the creation of Team 13. They shared a drink together to celebrate Su-Na's promotion to platoon leader, and Yu-Mi teases Su-Na about her normally lazy behaviour.
- Yu-Mi possesses the largest bust size of all the Pandora's in the series. Ironically, she also shares the same weak point as Satellizer L. Bridget, who is also big-breasted.
- In Korean, her name is rendered as "김＝유미"
- In the sixth OVA, Yu-Mi has been shown to get orgasmic effects when under a strong Ereinbar Set, more specifically, Kazuya's.
