Fortunes of romance and fate for Cheese in the Trap

Here are a couple more teasers to whet our appetites for tvN’s upcoming campus-set romance-thriller drama Cheese in the Trap, though I’m still trying to figure out where the mystery and thrills come from. So far it looks like a straightforward rom-com with a coolly perfect hero and a plucky everygirl, but every description makes it a point to include that there’s a “dangerous” element to our hero’s appeal. Whatever his secret is, I hope it’s a good one.

The teasers feature leads Park Hae-jin and Kim Go-eun on separate trips to the fortuneteller (played by ubiquitous funnywoman Hwang Seok-jung), wherein they’re informed of their impending fates. The fortuneteller starts out by admiring Park Hae-jin’s beautiful face, then adds, “Nobody knows that you’re black inside and totally rude, do they?” Then she exults that he’s going to meet his match soon: “The girl who’ll expose that you’re all black inside and rude is coming. It’s fate!”

In the next teaser, Kim Go-eun drops by the fortuneteller’s tent wanting to ask about her plans to return to school, only to have the fortuneteller fixate on her love life instead. Kim Go-eun practically rolls her eyes in boredom, until the fortuneteller says, “He’s sexy.” Suddenly she’s all ears and pink-cheeked as she leans in, hearing all about how she won’t be able to escape him even if she tried. But… who’d want to try? Oh right, I suppose there is that whole danger thing, where he’s the cheese in the metaphorical trap, luring our unsuspecting mouse toward doom. This is a love story, right?

Cheese in the Trap premieres on January 4 as tvN’s next Monday-Tuesday drama.

They changed Sul too much. Kind of have a bad feeling about the drama. Although will check it out due to my love of original manhwa and Park Hae Jin.

Yep. Sul is too girly. She didn't even care much about guys and romance.

I remember Sul being happier on the outside before she met Jung though, that's why when they first met he saw her as pathetic and noisy. It's only after a year of being beat down by many circumstances that she became more tired and serious.

I started reading the webtoon the other day and am really enjoying it! It's hard to describe but there is an uneasiness in everything... Seol is a very perceptive person and something seems off to her about Jung. At the point I'm at nothing is really revealed, but the beginning suggests that he's quite manipulative. Or, is it just that Seol is paranoid...? Who knows? Haha.

where are did you get at the webtoon? i don't want to spoil but there are some things that happened that indicate that he's not an innocent boy, at the contrary, he likes to control people and things and doesn't like it when something don't happen according to his plans. well that doesn't mean he's devil but maybe a sociopath? huh

No, this isn't it.

Sul seems him as manipulating, controling guy.

But the truth is yes his outside Image isn't the same as his inside image. He pretends to be nice to everyone even when he doesn't want to/doesn't care about the people just to keep his image, and skip problem/arguing

Or maybe I'm wrong??

Yes only Sul goes to fortune teller in prologue, but a flashback scene shows Jung has been told his fortune by Baek Inha [she reads it from newspaper] when he met Sul first time on the similar lines of this fortune.

I can't recollect which season or chapter it was but it for sure wasn't the first season and, I remember it mostly coz Inha says something along the lines of Hong will be important for him or something of that sort - which I found interesting as she was talking about the color but in the whole context it seemed like Sul's family name. :D

Seol is an awesome character sincere and quick on feet to find if somethings wrong.... Seol's charm is which holds the show together....
If they pull that off it will be a success (which I didn't see in the trailer) otherwise webtoon followers will not think twice before chewing their bones out..... That's the problem with adoption dramas because they have to justify the original ..

I personally can't see what's easier to use than a plain old name/email form which can be autofilled without any need for passwords etc.

Sorry if this comes across as harsh but db really doesn't need to become like other disqus-using blogs/websites. The crowd that seems to hang out on disqus is pretty much immature kpop children and trolls, which is the antithesis of everything db is about.

To be fair, I don't mind disqus either. It can calculate likes, arrange comments, get notifications, and I've never had to deal with trolls (if there are any, their comments just get buried anyway). That being said, I don't find anything wrong with the current commenting system on Dramabeans either; I just think the criticism was unusually harsh. I mean, it's not like we don't get trolls on Dramabeans either.

The disqus trolls (usually kpop idol fans) make the known db ones look like child's play tbqh. It's not worth attracting that crowd to dramabeans en masse just for the sake of a like button. And I find the disqus comment arrangement system weird since it doesn't seem to go in chronological order.

Basically, the current db system works just fine, if it ain't broke don't fix it.

I doubt Javabeans and Girlfriday are ever going to change things that drastically anyway, so the whole point is moot (even if I do disagree with you). Besides, even if they did switch and it didn't work out, all they'd have to do is change it back the way it was, so it's not a big deal either way.

And I have to say, I strongly disagree with the idea "if it's not broke, don't fix it". If Dramabeans never evolved, it'd still be run by Javabeans alone (hence, there'd be no Girlfriday, or any of the other recappers), and we wouldn't be getting nearly as many dramas covered on the site, or any of the fun non-recap threads. Not to mention, we wouldn't have the awesome episode rater either, which was a new addition, and any other cool ideas they have in store for the future (which, like the previous "like" button, can always be removed if broken). So really, what's the harm? There's no need to be rude or harsh to someone who's merely offering a suggestion or sharing their personal preference.

There's evolution (like allowing nested comment threads, which is something that happened after db had been up and running for a while) and then there's throwing the baby out with the bathwater. I can see how the star ratings or the new recappers are a positive change to the site, but a new commenting system to replace one that works perfectly fine? I don't think so.

And frankly, all I did was be honest to someone who doesn't know better, about why exactly disqus would be a disaster for the db community - moot or not, I'm not the only commenter who has problems with disqus and I don't think I'm wrong for speaking up against the possibility of adopting it.

Aww, I think this man is beautiful on the inside and out. You really have to check out his other dramas (and news) in order to appreciate him. Park Hae Jin is truly an amazing and talented actor and I for one can't wait to see his portrayal of Yoo Jung. I'm sure he'll pull it off quite nicely :)

I'm actually really looking for forward to this drama! There's been so much hype for this drama, and though I don't read websoons, so I have no idea what this drama could possibly be about. It's definately peaked my interest.
They've mentioned that the male lead will have a 'dark side'? I'm curious as to what exactly this will include. Will he be manipulative or have a violent temper?

Btw anyone know how many episodes this drama will have?

I like that the teasers are like this because it follows so heavily with the way the webtoon seems before you actually read it, lol.

And I think Kim Go Eun's Seol is on point so far. She's such a nervous wreck sometimes and such an awkward person who bottles stuff up inside; I think Kim did a good job in the short teaser. The paper crumpling was a nice touch.

I'm looking forward to watching it.

I really hope not... if that's the case, they've ruined the webtoon. Seriously, this needs to be really quite different from the normal rom-coms we see all the time.

(Holding off on watching the teasers myself... I'll try the first episode when it comes out.)

I think this drama little bit off tbh and the male lead it's hair is way off.. they should have used an iron on it and make it bangs with little bit fluffy but not straight and circle..

Sul's character is for me completely gone and she is to chubby to play Sul who was on the skinny side of things and had a youthful aura and I also want to note that the male lead is to old for the webtoon character

Oh wow!! We are going there now? Commenting on hair and weight?? Jesus some people are Overacting about a freaking teaser... They are both awesome actors and that's what matters to me.. Yoo Jung could be black and seol could be 150 kg for all i care, i just want them to act good and have chemistry!! Plus i think that the production team and the crew know what they are doing, it's their job so lay off with the negativity everyone.

I hope they will not change it into a rom-com.

It's more psychological than comedy... All the characters are kinda off in this story. Except the two friends of the heroine.

The heroine is sharp, but kinda over-sensitive, the hero has social problems, the hero-rival thinks that he's a victim (maybe it was really the hero fault for his hand, but he really seems a pain in the ass, living off the hero's dad, and stealing his love), and the gril who like the hero is just simply a PSYCHOPATH.

The others characters are so fucking twisted.

Since they're saying it's a "thriller" (and the webtoon is), I hope they will keep this atmosphere.
I don't want the heroine to appear like a "good and normal girl" (no, she's a little mentally... hum.), the hero like a "robot" (it's different, this characters is so complicated, I hope the actor will do well), the girl who like the hero like a "bad girl" (no, she soooooooo scary), and PLEASE! PLEASE! Don't go easy on your characters, Seo Kang Joon! Don't try to look good!!! Because he's not just a fuckin' eye candy : he's selfish, arrogant and a jerk. Do,'t make him just look like a stupid but nice yankee. PLEASE. He's someone perturbed by his injured hand (that was more important than his own life, 'cause he's a pianist), and a brat who don't even understand why the hero don't like him... He's sucking' money off his dad without doing serious efforts for his job, and he's also sucking' all the parents love...

All the characters are DISTURBED! It's A PSYCHOLOGICAL STORY! There's a lot of PSYCHOPATHS in here!

PLEASE DON'T MAKE IT IN A ROM-COM!

(sorry for my english)

I don't know what is with all the commotion about the teasers? I've read the webtoon and found them perfect? Yoo Hae Jin does seem a little old for the role but I've gotten over that. He's a good actor and I can see him balancing the sociopath side and a nice side well. And when he smiled in the teaser he looked ten years younger.
And I love Kim Go Eun here. It's my first time seeing her in a show, but I think I will really love her as Sul. The slight awkwardness, the glancing around in the tent at the end in doubt, seem to suit her character as one that is indeed sensitive but also slightly comical in the sense that we can see her thoughts quite clearly (well in the web toon she is the main character so we really see her thoughts). On the other hand Yoo Jung's teaser, you can't really tell what he's feeling or thinking, except guess with the luminous music.
I'm really excited for this. To me the cast is well done, the teasers are cute, and all that is left is the drama.

The original webtoon is definitely not a rom-com, It's more psychological, slice of life manhwa than a shoujo romance story (at least the heroine doesn't prioritize love and even in fact suspicious of the hero's motive to get close to her, she's too busy getting "trapped" in sticky social dilemmas and situations).

I wish you guys will at least read a few chap of Cheese in The Trap webtoon to at least know what it's about.

I really hope the drama version won't make people carelessly label the webtoon as rom-com webtoon, it's totally not and if that happens, as a huge fan of the original webtoon, I'll be pretty frustrated....

For those interested in reading the webtoon, go and read it using LINE Webtoon APP or oddsquad's site (they're already translating until season 3).

I don't see this as a rom-com AT all. I was so disturbed on so many different occasions while reading the webtoon which is what I feel the author/manhwaga intended. This is going to be a difficult one to do because (unless I'm very much mistaken) the story is not complete and for the sake of the drama, they're going to have to reach a satisfactory climax.

As other people have been saying, Seol is very perceptive and at many different occasions she has noted the violence in the dude which is not exactly explicit but unspoken and somehow always present. He is very callous as well and I wonder if he is somehow manipulating everything in order to get Seol. The change in his attitude toward her is abrupt and alarming and it'll be interesting to see how it all turns out.

(I for one expect an ending where she doesn't end up with the guy.)

I like the fact that the drama already informs the viewers from the get go that Jung is not your average perfect man (since he's 'black and rude' and I agree with that to some extent). Still, the fact that he voluntarily goes to the fortuneteller seems very wrong for me because it's not his thing at all. I know this is just a teaser and they probably only make it in order to balance Seol's teaser. But it contradicts Jung's personality and I don't want to think that they'll continue doing this.

Maybe it'll be better if the ahjumma meets Jung on her way home in the middle of the night and just, you know, abruptly 'reads' him (especially since she just met Seol who's his 'soulmate') and tells him all those things. We can see how Jung's face changes too and it'll be pretty creepy since it's already dark. I think it's a better way to give us a clue what he's like.

But anyways what's done is done! Now I'm waiting for Inho's, Inha's, Euntaek's and Bora's teasers! I hope they're going to make teasers for them too <3

Some people need to chill. I am a huge fan of the drama, and I didn't find anything wrong with the teaser. I am actually so glad that tvN is remaking it and everything looks promising.

Now that I say it, I wish Untouchable will also get a drama adaptation. That webtoon is the death of my life seriously. Best webtoon ever. (along with Winter Woods).

I'm so glad I don't know the webtoon.

Still, I'm glad that for webtoons turned into dramas I'm always free from any expectations since I don't read webtoons :D I can just enjoy Park Haejin on my screen haha
