The Cheese in the Trap movie is one huge step towards reality today with news that K-actress Oh Yeon Seo has been cast as the female lead. It’s long been known that drama Cheese in the Trap female lead Kim Go Eun would not be reprising her role opposite male lead Park Hae Jin, who is back for the movie and really makes the whole thing feel like an attempt to do him and his character justice after the drama version botched the entire second half. The casting of Oh Yeon Seo feels like a smart coup move, she’s been a steady success in dramas and her last role in SBS drama Please Come Back Ahjusshi was tour de force awesome, far and away the single best thing in that production. K-netizens are positive towards her these days and the Cheese movie could use starting off on the right foot. I approve and good luck to making this movie worthwhile to watch.
I don’t think Kim Go Eun is off crying in her bed over not being back for the Cheese movie – she’s got boyfriend Shin Ha Kyun to snuggle with and the female lead role in Kim Eun Sook‘s upcoming tvN fantasy drama Goblin opposite Gong Yoo. I thought Kim Go Eun did a fantastic job as the female lead Hong Seol but not so iconic that Oh Yeon Seo has nothing to work with, and Oh Yeon Seo’s comedic timing is impeccable so I think this will work out acting wise.
