Park Hae Jin & Cast At The “Cheese In The Trap” Script Reading


While Cheese in the Trap won’t be airing until December, some publicity for it has been slowly building up.

Recently, photos of the cast filming have been making the rounds online, and now, CJ E&M (and Park Hae Jin‘s agency) released photos of the actors at the script reading, which took place not too long ago.

Here’s the plot, per AsianWiki:

Drama depicts the delicate relationship between female university student Hong Seol (Kim Go Eun) and her senior Yoo Jung (Park Hae Jin). Hong Seol works part-time due to her family’s poor background. Yoo Jung is good looking, gets good grades, athletic and has a kind personality, but he has a dark side.

I know nothing about the webtoon from which the show is adapted and my curiosity for the drama is tempered, but I do trust tvN, which has a solid repertoire. That means I’m expecting it will pull off another critical hit. Let’s hope so, especially as it seems like the show is being pre-taped, much less live filming schedule errors to derail the pace of the story.

While there are a few who have expressed some misgivings and worry about Kim Go Eun playing Hong Seol, overall response from netizens, particularly from loyal fans of the webtoon, has been pretty positive—especially towards the male cast. Heh.

As mentioned, Cheese in the Trap will have its first broadcast later in the year.

    I started reading the webtoon a while back and can honestly say I couldn’t be happier with how everyone looks in that top picture!

    However I have watched too many k-dramas that have seemingly perfect castings and have gone by the way-side but I’m hoping TvN will come through once again.

    Hong Seol is such a great, real and earthy character that I’m hoping the show does her justice. And ofc I’m curious as to how they’ll end the show.

    Man I hope they style her weave better for the show cause right now that is not a good look when I can clearly see her short bob over the long waves (I”m sure they’ll get it right for the drama). I have read the webtoon (well what has been translated) and think Kim Go Eun and Park Hae Jin (especially him) are perfect for the role (although my fancast for Seol has always been Jung So Min). I hope the writing is good because the webtoon is very slice of life and it’s the characters more than the situations that give it life. They better get the dark/manipulative/almost pathological side of Yoo Jung right and they better not turn Seol into a candy because candy she is not. I particularly enjoy how she doesn’t accept Jung’s b.s and when need be tells him to f-off as necessary.

      Yeah I’m so curious how well Hae Jin is going to pull off Yoo Jung. His character in the webtoon is such a subtle kind of darkness that makes you question at least from the start whether he is a good guy or not. I’m afraid if the directing or post production (like bg music and such) overplays it it might come off really cartoony. I really want to experience that same feeling in the drama that I got from the comic, like this hysterical “haha omg this guy fucked up” but it’s so cleverly written that you still love him.

      I’m also not loving the hair on Sul but luckily this is just a script reading. If they don’t get it right in the drama I’ll be a bit disappoint. Go Eun doesn’t exactly have the kind of face I was imagining for Sul, though I’m sure she was picked for her acting, but they should at the very least do the styling well.
