I haven’t read Cheese in the Trap webtoon so I can’t say whether the lead characters are less interesting than the second leads the way things played out in the live-action K-drama version that aired in 2016 on tvN. I do have a feeling that the second leads for the upcoming movie version may steal the show, for the drama it was Seo Kang Joon‘s Baek In Ho and for the movie I’m dying over the perfect bitch face that Yoo In Young is projecting as Baek In Ha.
The movie premieres in theaters in two weeks just in time for White Day and I love how it’s trying hard to tie it back to the original webtoon by releasing real person v. illustrated character side-by-side stills. Leads Park Hae Jin is reprising his character while Oh Yeon Seo will recreate the female lead that Kim Go Eun portrayed in the drama. Throw in the underrated Park Ki Woong as the movie Baek In Ho and I think the movie at two hours may be a relatively entertaining watch.
