Interviews with Cheese in the Trap’s cast (Part 1)
by | February 9, 2016 | 107 Comments
Given that the Lunar New Year holiday took away our two new episodes of Cheese in the Trap this week (graaaaar!), I suppose it’s only fitting that the cast would at least embark on a massive interview circuit and give us pretty hanbok-clad New Year’s photos. It doesn’t ease the pain of not getting new... More »

Cheese in the Trap: Episode 10

So cute today. I mean, this show is always cute (with a side of crazies), but this episode had some really sweet character beats that made me giddy. It also had some triumphant moments for our heroine, who confronts her tormenters in a major way and doesn’t hold back or silently endure like she’s so... More »

It’s an important day for our couple, who make big strides in their relationship that needed making. Of course, they’re not all super-adorable happy strides, but sometimes we have to weather a rough patch to get to more adorableness, right? I do really enjoy that this drama features our couple’s relationship as a work in... More »

The more I watch this drama, the more I like the characters, and the more confused and turned around I get because I like them. It’s a weird experience to wonder if it’s safe to like your drama hero, but that’s just the strange mix of romance laced with danger and intrigue that Cheese in... More »

I do enjoy this couple so—they’re awkward and halting and sometimes make me cringe so hard in secondhand embarrassment, but they’re endearing as all get-out. In most dramaland trendies, I fall for the romances because they’re sweet, or chemistry-packed, or bolstered by heaps of funny, witty cuteness. In this case, however, I actually find the... More »

It’s a great episode for cuteness, and growth in understanding, and poignant character beats, and just everything, really. There are nice moments for several characters, but it’s our main couple who shines as they draw closer, start growing out of their awkwardness a bit (though I’ll always welcome a little comical flailing), and find common...

Yay, now I can join the Cheese party! This show is a nice gust of fresh air, and I’ve really been enjoying its contemplative, slice-of-life feel, especially the way it handles heavy themes and light romance with equal skill, without ever having to veer into melodramatic territory or stray from its thoughtful, slightly off-kilter tone....

Time for the pendulum to swing, and the thing about being in an overthinker’s brain is, there’s no end to the number of ways a thing can be read, analyzed, and interpreted. I’d say misinterpreted, but to be fair, our resident overthinker isn’t so far off-base when she’s trying to get a handle on someone... More »

Cheese in the Trap: Episode 3

Cheese in the Trap has all the makings of a crack drama and pop-culture sensation, which the ever-climbing ratings only serve to confirm. But more than a sweet, potentially giddifying romance with appealing characters, I’m really responding to the thread of thoughtfulness running through the show, and the development of the characters beyond the romantic....

Cheese in the Trap: Episode 2

Another strong episode continues the positive momentum from yesterday’s premiere, and we get much more of a lot of things: a deepening of the relationships, an intriguing glimpse of the hero’s backstory, cuteness, and a heavier undercurrent of angst. And now that we see more of the developing plotline, I start to see a little... More »
