Campus drama Cheese in the Trap completes cast
Lee Sung-kyung, Park Min-ji, Yoon Ye-joo
I didn’t think we’d ever see the end of the casting drama for this drama, but it looks like we’ve finally secured all the major characters for tvN’s adaptation of the hit webtoon Cheese in the Trap. The campus drama stars Park Hae-jin (Bad Guys) as the cold, perfect leading man and Kim Go-eun (Eungyo) as the everywoman heroine in a college romance that’s characterized by delicate emotional interplay, strife, and love.
The latest addition to the cast is rising model-turned-actress Lee Sung-kyung, who debuted in It’s Okay It’s Love (she played Lee Kwang-soo’s pink-haired girlfriend) and followed it up with a major role in the weekend drama Queen’s Flower. She’s been cast as Baek In-ha, the noona to main romantic rival Baek In-ho, played by Seo Kang-joon (Hwajeong).
She and her brother have known Park Hae-jin for a long time, and her character is described as an eye-catching beauty. She uses that beauty to date two, sometimes three guys at a time, and has a temper on top of being selfish. She seems like a wild card, but she’ll probably be good for stirring the pot?
Park Min-ji (When a Man Loves, Great Seer) will play Kim Go-eun’s best friend Jang Bora, as part of the heroine’s loyal trio of friends along with Nam Joo-hyuk (Who Are You—School 2015). Her character is refreshingly frank and loyal, bright, and easygoing, and the three friends go everywhere together. Aw, they sound sweet.
Newbie Yoon Ye-joo, who played Kim Yoo-jung’s best friend in Angry Mom, has been cast as Kang Ah-young — she’s a cute little sister type to the heroine, who grew up with Kim Go-eun and her brother (Kim Hee-chan, The Producers). She’ll join the gang as a freshman in the art department at their school.
Cheese in the Trap will be directed by PD Lee Yoon-jung (Heart to Heart, Coffee Prince) and written by Kim Nam-hee (Little Mom Scandal, Tree of Heaven). It’s scheduled to follow Bubblegum on Mondays and Tuesdays beginning in December.
