Cheese in the Trap (2018)
The persons who can receive comfort is the one who needs it. – Hong Seol
Cheese in the Trap Synopsis: Hong Seol (Oh Yeon Seo) never thought of herself as anything special. A young university student, she never stood out as exceptional or even extraordinary. She went to class, worked part-time to pay her tuition fees and living expenses, and spent time with her friends. As average as average could be, Hong Seol never thought she’d catch the eye of someone as out of the ordinary as Yoo Jung (Park Hae Jin).
A senior at the same university, Yoo Jung has never been one to blend in. The handsome son of a wealthy family, he’s never had to work his way through school, but that hasn’t kept him from thinking himself above his peers. On the contrary, he’s always been kind towards others, helping out where he can. With so much going for him, he’s always been one to attract the attention of others, but very few have been able to catch his eye. Until now.
Intrigued by Hong Seol, Yoo Jung begins to take an interest in his underclassman. When he finally decides to ask her out, the two begin an unexpected and awkward relationship that will cause more than a few heads to turn. (Source: Viki)

- Cheese in the Trap is a 2018 South Korean romance film based on the Korean webtoon of the same name.
- It was released on March 14, 2018.
- The production was first announced in March 2016, and confirmed Park Hae-jin’s return to reprise his role as Yoo Jung.
- It was announced that Kim Go-eun, the lead actress of the television adaptation, was not offered a role and a new actress would be sought.
The movie is still very anticipated among fans and movie goers in general. Mostly of course expecting a better adaptation than the drama, especially in term of ending.
I disliked all the new actors. I don’t dislike the actors themselves, but they did not fit for the roles.
I can’t say that Oh Yeon Seo suited the role of Hong Seol. I still want Kim Go Eun for that role.
Just as the characters felt bland, the plot felt way too rushed. Story wise, this movie was kind of a mess.
The movie lacked everything I loved about the series except for Park Hae Jin, the only reason why this one is watchable for me. There is no better actor who could play the dark and mysterious Yoo Jung than Park Hae Jin.
My Overall Rating – 7.5/10 (Cheese in the Trap Movie is not good enough, especially when it actually expected to exceed the drama version.)
