The first weekend of January in the new year 2016 is almost at an end, which means new tvN Mon-Tues drama Cheese in the Trap will have its long awaited premiere on January 4th. I’ve only recently ratcheted my excitement up from curiosity to anticipation thanks to a very interesting long five minute preview. All the leads are showcased in Park Hae Jin, Kim Go Eun, Seo Kang Joon, Lee Sung Kyung, Nam Joo Hyuk, and Park Min Ji, and everyone is delivering nicely in performance chemistry from what I can see. It’s a college campus setting drama but seems more about interpersonal relationships than overcoming set adversities, and will feature supposedly nuanced interactions that will showcase very different personalities sparking in diverse ways. Count me in for a first taste of the cheese in the trap, with hopefully no ouchies from getting snapped by a seemingly promising drama that turns out to be a dud.
