The reboot or continuation of K-drama Cheese in the Trap has kicked off as the movie cast gathered for their first production meeting. The only returnee from the drama is male lead Park Hae Jin, while the rest of the well-cast drama leads Kim Go Eun, Seo Kang Joon, and Lee Sung Kyung are all out. I don’t have a problem with recasting for the drama but it feels like these three were thrown under the bus for the wacky second half of the drama that threw Park Hae Jin’s character under the bus. I hope the movie hews true to what made the first half of the drama work by staying true to the webtoon narrative, and newly cast leads Oh Yeon Seo, Park Ki Woong, and Yoo In Young are surprisingly great potential matches to the original characters. Directing is the PD of Wonderful Radio and Queen of the Night.
Also attending the first cast meeting with the earlier cast leads are recently cast supporting leads Sandara Park and Kim Hyun Jin.
