I’m not sure who the target audience is for the Cheese in the Trap movie but if there are any then the film has been confirmed to hit the theaters on Valentine’s Day weekend of 2018. That’s less than a month away and there hasn’t been any promos yet so that’s not going to bring in the audience by stealth. It’s been exactly two years since the K-drama adaptation of the popular webtoon hit the small screens with male lead Park Hae Jin, Kim Go Eun, Lee Sung Kyung, and Seo Kang Joon.
It was frustratingly imperfect but still an intriguing watch for the first half until it all went to pot. The movie appears an attempt to deliver a more satisfying wrap up of the story but does away with three out of the four original leads, only bringing back Park Hae Jin and this time he’s paired with Oh Yeon Seo along with new supporting leads Park Ki Woong and Yoo In Young. I like the new cast but then I also liked the old cast, and ultimately this movie doesn’t scream blockbuster potential but if its a way to give the fans of the K-drama a cohesive conclusion then that’s fine by me.
