Suzy up to headline tvN’s Cheese in the Trap

Huh, so Cheese in the Trap, the highly anticipated webtoon-adapted drama starring Park Hae-jin (Dr. Stranger, You From Another Star), is considering adding Suzy (Gu Family Book) in the leading lady role. Everyone, buckle up for a bumpy ride on the media play train — already reaction is vocal and loud and pretty conflicted.

According to Suzy’s representation at JYP Entertainment, she received the offer for the lead role of Hong-seol and is considering the drama. The production company confirmed sending Suzy the script, but added that “there was no further discussion.” No decisions have been made on either side.

The character is described as an ordinary and thoughtful college student with an occasional tough side. Park Hae-jin signed on to the project early on, and plays the heroine’s sunbae and later boyfriend. He’s the perfect type of guy, boasting good looks, background, education, and style, though he’s also got a mysterious streak and a “dark inner side” behind his kindly face. From what I’ve read of the webtoon, it’s not a dark or shady story so I don’t suppose that he’s quite as sinister as that wording suggests, though maybe webtoon-readers can fill us in on the details.

Already I’m seeing a ton of fan reactions to the casting, with some excited over Suzy’s casting (she IS pretty much the It Girl of her generation, in terms of popularity and starpower) amidst a pretty sizable wave of discontent. It kind of reminds me of the uproar when Yoon-ah was almost cast in Cantabile Tomorrow, which was so negative that everyone quickly backtracked. Like Nodame Cantabile, Cheese in the Trap has a fervent and protective fanbase, and it seems that more people feel Suzy’s not a good image fit than the opposite.

And while I do really like Suzy on a personal level (in that she seems sweet and I have general warm feelings about her as a person), let’s just say her acting ability is perhaps the least of her charms. She can work in cutely funny roles that poke fun at herself, as in Dream High (where they made a whole plot point out of her inability to emote) or even Big, but I always find myself frustrated that she doesn’t connect emotionally with her characters or make me feel for them. I want a heroine who makes me care!

We’ll have to see which way the production team takes this fan response as they continue the casting process. The drama, directed by Coffee Prince and Heart to Heart PD Lee Yoon-jung, will air as a Monday-Tuesday drama on tvN later this year.

NO I LOVE CHEESE IN THE TRAP AND AS MUCH I LIKE SUZY I DON'T THINK SHE WOULD BE A GOOD FIT FOR HONG SEOL. HONG SEOL HAS GOT A LOT OF DEPTH TO HER CHARACTER AND SHE'S MORE THAN JUST AN ORDINARY THOUGHTFUL COLLEGE STUDENT. A LOT OF SHIT GOES DOWN IN THIS MANHWA AND THEY NEED TO CAST AN ACTRESS WHO CAN CONNECT ON A DEEP EMOTIONAL LEVEL WITH THIS CHARACTER AND I DON'T THINK SUZY CAN DO THAT. But Park Hae Jin is perfect for the roll.

My eyes just went wide reading the headline. I don't know what to think at this point but hong seol is a very complicated character to play. From reading the webtoon, serious acting chops are needed for this role. Besides that, chemistry needs to work for both leads. Suzy is just a blank to me. She can be cute, she can cry but no other depth to her roles like you mentioned. In my opinion, I don't think this is for her just yet.

No, just No! While Park Hae-jin seems to be relatively new, he has a lot of screen presence. Just look at him in Bad Guys - he blew me away. And he was sweet and charming in You From Another Star. So he can play both dark and sweet and he would just eat her alive. The acting would be so uneven. Please don't let this happen. I don't actively hate her acting, she is just not in PHJ's league. Pick someone else. PLEASE!

Just FYI, Park Hae Jin is definitely not a new actor. He was in Famous Chil Princesses about 10 years ago, and his acting has improved a Lot. I've been a fan since then, so I'm so happy he's getting the recognition now :)

So, if folks are hell bent on casting a popular idol with the pull to draw in viewers, then they should be heavily investing in training them to act. At some point, they get better as most of us do with practice.

I feel for the idols who are singers who then are cast and expected to act. There are some that really do quite well. I just wish they'd let those that need more practice have the time to do just that. Seems that they are running to/from concerts, appearances, model shoots, CFs and whatever else can be jammed in.

I don't think I'd survive being a stage mom in Korea.

OH PLEASE NO. No offence to Suzy--she's sweet and I've liked her in a lot of her projects but just PLEASE NO. First of all, she's WAY too young--12 years younger than Park Hae-Jin! I was anticipating a potential gap when they cast him, but I thought it would be max like six years. They're supposed to be like 2 years apart, holy crap.

Man, I just can't imagine Suzy being convincing as Sul. She's too... idk... cutesy. The roles that she's taken so far have all been that sort of type. Which isn't necessarily a bad thing, but it's just so far from Sul's character. And it amplifies her young-ness. Sigh.

when I heard PHJ would be the lead, I started reading Cheese in the Trap online. He could fit the bill, but I really don't see Hong Seol being played by Suzy. I'm not a Suzy hater, but Hong Seol is someone who periodically embarrasses herself or blushes out of stupidity because of what she does/imagines, and I don't ever think I've seen Suzy play such a role. So far, mind you I haven't seen everything, yet Suzy always plays the confident, in control person, with weaknesses that everyone knows about, but herself. Not the inner weaker person who becomes strong and aware over time. Thus I don't see the fit.

Every other day you read that an idol is staring in a webtoon. As far as I can tell, webtoon fans are pretty loyal to their characters, and you might have a slaughter fest if she doesn't match up. So far what the web eps I've read, Suzy wouldn't be my Seol. I would hope she doesn't take the role and I can still watch PHJ and drool. Sorry...

The comments in this section are a mess. I'm not going to accuse anyone of being jeallous, but it seems to me that people are taking a drama casting way too seriously. To be honest, I haven't really ever thought Suzy is a bad actress compared to the rest of K-actresses, and I think the hate on her is largely bandwagon. She was great in Architecture 101, too.

This has nothing to do with Suzy or hating on Suzy. This has to do with Cheese in the Trap and Sul. Sul is such a complex and contradictory character there's just no way she could pull it off. Even an experienced and good actress might need a couple months to study her properly, THAT is how detailed and exact Sul's personality, actions, and aura are known.

Obviously we're fans of the webtoon and are excited for the drama, so we hope it will do will. Suzy just doesn't fit the bill, so we're against it. Her Arch. 101 role was simple as hell btw, nowhere near Sul.

0
reply

Required fields are marked *

It's not bandwagon. Suzy wouldn't be able to do this role justice. Sul is a character with a lot of inner turmoil. You would really have to act out those emotions from the inside and push them out because there are a lot of things she does not say out loud. Suzy is not at the level to be able to do that. Even experienced actors/actresses may have trouble doing that.

Required fields are marked *

I really like Suzy (she's actually has an offbeat personality based on her reality appearances) and thought she did a pretty good job in "Architecture 101" (as did Han Ga-in, another who has roundly gotten criticized for her acting).

Now, with the right project (writing/directing) - actresses who have been maligned for their acting have been able to break thru (YEH in "Coffee Prince", KTH in "My Princess", Lee Yeon-gee in "Miss Korea", etc.), so maybe the writer and PD may be able to draw out a god performance from Suzy.

But at the same time, I can see fans of the web-toon/prospective viewers for the series wanting an actress who has already shown to be able to regularly give good performances.

LYH seems like she has really broken thru w/ regard to her acting abilities whereas YEH hasn't been able to match her performance in CP. Along those lines, Suzy's acting, if anything, has gone backwards from Arch 101.

If Suzy is cast, I'm not going to summarily dismiss it and will give it a try, but an actress with a better track record would increase the chance of the series being a success.

At least LYH can deliver the goods when the writer and PD are on the right track.

Suzy had writers in practically all her projects bending over backwards to adjust the writing so it wouldn't require more than the very little she can do, and even then she looks like she's just mouthing lines in front of a camera instead of playing a character.

Would you consider Ha Ji-wo to be a talented actress, b/c I have yet to see her in anything where I took notice of her (good) acting?

Maybe LYH is not at the level of the very top actresses (like a Jeon Do-yeon, which only a few are), but given a decent script, she can do well.

I've seen upper tier actresses struggle w/ their performances when what they have to work w/ sucked.

And whether a character is "boring" has more to do w/ the script/dialogue than the acting.

Case in point, YYS and KSR couldn't make their characters in W&C memorable, much less interesting despite their efforts.

That was due to the piss-poor script/dialogue that they had to work with.

Also, wouldn't say that their acting was good (much less great) - they just managed to not embarrass themselves w/ the crap that they had to work with (which was pretty heroic).

well..so so many opinionated wise people are here..
When the article was published about her considering the role..
the comment section explode..
I'm a big fan of suzy and for surely I can tell many don't want her to take this role..
Many complaint when she's not yet the lead actress.
I'd rather not suzy take the role ...than her being you know..?
People criticized based solely on what they've seen and heard ..
if you compare it to a house or a book .. You thought, I know it all ...but you haven't explored it yet or understand it..Just by thinking I KNOW IT ALL...You forget to perceive the other half of it just like a person.
What if The thought I KNOW IT ALL is just 50% of 100% or maybe even less..??

I'm very hard pressed to name more than two actresses who are as bad as Suzy (and one of them is her older counterpart in Architecture 101, Han Ga-in), so the claim about her not being bad compared to "the rest of" K-actresses is hard to understand.

Several other actresses and even idol actresses who are her age are already miles ahead in terms of accomplishment. Praising her while dissing them is like praising the slow child in class for finally learning a few letters of the alphabet, while the rest of the class is reading entire books.

I liked her in Gu Family Book. I felt for her character there, so I really cannot agree with anyone who says she's incapable of making anyone feel anything for her character.

I don't understand this Suzy hate. I thought she did way better in GFB than, for example, Jung So-Min did in Mischievous Kiss, and the hate for Jung So-Min doesn't go to these levels. Heck, I've never seen hate for Jung So-Min, ever. The double standards are ridiculous.

Honestly, I have never had the instance where fan hate actually led to something positive. I just hope the producers are sincere with their casting and that they'll follow it through IF they believe in it.

Jung So-Min compared to Suzy? o_0 Oh my, she is never hated because she isn't bad. XD. Just because you enjoy her performance doesn't mean she is perceived bad by everyone else. Same as how we think Suzy is bad doesn't has to cloud your judgment, we all have our opinion. I know Jung So Min wasn't really great in MK but compared to the lead actor? She saved the series. And if you bothered to watch anything else by her, you would get that she is a versatile actress, who is at least better than Suzy.

In GFB Suzy literally was speaking in modern Seoul accent, I know CITT doesn't need her speaking Joseon but that accent really bothered me in GFB while a newbie actress like Lee Yoo Bi was kick ass in there, acting and dialogue delivery were all on point, acting wise Suzy definitely improved compared to her DH days but she is still nowhere near playing a complex character like Sul.

Also, I think Yoona's siutation can show us a great deal. Everyone hated on Yoona and paraded Shim Eun-Kyung as an amazing actress who deserved the role, but Shim Eun-Kyung's portrayal ended up being so crappy and idiotic. Here's to hoping people can see through idol bias because the reality is that moy K-actors suck and the ones that people claim are good are largely just average actors who are actually just doing their job correctly. Only a few K-actors in reality are actually good - much less great.

Crappy and idiotic? Rather harsh there. She struggled a bit at the beginning, but I still do not think another actress fitted the role better than SEK for the Korean version. Yes, she may not have been a natural like Ueno Juri at first, but she gradually got accustomed to her role. Also, her character was very silly to begin with.

There's a reason why people did not want Yoona to take on the role. She wasn't right for the character and a mass majority of people realized this. I wouldn't call it idol bias since even though Suzy may have improved throughout the years, many people (with good reason) still regard her acting as mediocre.

People criticized choice of Yoona cause she was wrong choice for the role not necessarily cause she is an idol actress. I think after PMAI a lot of people wormed up to Yoona and her acting as she showed genuine improvement , just like Go Ara and Lee Yeon Hee.

When it comes to Suzy , not only she is wrong choice for this role but she also can't emote on screen, she is very flat in her performance. She is pretty and likeable but that's the nicest thing i can say about her. She hasn't improved since Dram High and she can hardly make a jump from that level to the one necessary to portray Sol.

Bobee ~

Cantabile Tomorrow was crappy, but it's a bit much laying all of that on Shim Eun-Kyung alone. Agreed, casting was a problem, she didn't fit. The terrible writing and directing set the course for that steaming pile.

It is difficult to watch a favorite work that is about to butchered though. An adaptation that could be looked forward to becomes something that you want to avoid and wish had never happened.

I have read some the webtoon. I'm not familiar enough with Suzy to offer an opinion one way or the other.

Who knows, lots of folks were trashing IU's casting in Producers and **ahem ** they were dead wrong.

Perhaps Suzy can surprise everyone. If not and it's crap, folks won't tune in.

Some folks have mentioned Go Ara, can't say if she's a good actress or not, but she does have beautiful eyes.

I'd be happy in Han Groo were to get this role.

Idol bias? I would be happy if IU takes the role. SEK wasn't crappy, in the beginning she wasn't really comfortable but later half she adjusted pretty well.
I don't know why you would be comparing that though because seriously if you have watched the original CT or read it you would know in one glance that Yoona is not the right choice for that role.
For Sul though if you haven't read the manhwa in its entirety you wouldn't understand why people are disappointed in the possible casting.

This is a complex drama, with complex – very three-dimensional – characters.

Honestly, the fact that TvN is even thinking about casting someone like Suzy makes me seriously worried about how they going about producing the whole drama.

wow, the negativity is strong! people improve (Go Ah Ra wasn't all that great in earlier dramas but then did Reply 1994 and showed she improved).

people should stop condemning Suzy and other actors, imo.

i'm fine if she takes the role, just as i'm fine if she doesn't.

the amount of hate in these comments, though, practically gave me whiplash. wow!!

I don't hate her. I actually like her and in a lighter project like a rom-com, I would actually be pretty happy with her casting.

But I'm a huge fan of this character & webtoon and unfortunately I really really don't think she's the right fit nor does she have the acting chops for a project like this.

I'm not condemning her, but if she's going to choose to be an actress on my screen I do have the right to have an opinion on her skills.

That said, yeah, she could have improved. But the fact is there are so many actresses out there who I think deserve this role much more...

Totally agree with you. I think a lot of viewers are already familiar with the female lead character so its just so difficult to accept an actress like Suzy for the role.

Suzy is pretty & good in lighter roles. Sul is a complex character, the actress must not only have acting chops but good chemistry with Park hae jin.

There are a couple of actresses more suitable for the role. Like Chun Woo Hee, Kang Sora, Go Ara, Oh Yeon Seo.....

Go Ara isnt a good example. She could play her character in Reply 1994 whatever way she wanted/understood since no one knew about the character before.

Sul is already very popular and fans have had their ideas about Sul. Thus, the actress who plays Sul needs to be really good at acting to accommodate the general feeling the mass have about Sul. She cant act "whatever way" she wants Sul to be.

It's an adaptation, though. We don't know if it'll stick entirely to the source material.

Look at Orange Marmalade. Everyone was hating on Seolhyun, but she's doing just fine. Mostly, because the TV show isn't a direct adaptation of the webtoon, so the actress can make the character all her own.

Sorry but it s hard to think Orange Marmalade the drama is an adaptation of Orange Marmalade the webtoon. The drama just happens to have the same title and characters' names. If CitT's adaptation will follow the same path like OM, then no comment. Whoever plays Sul will be ok since the character will be another typical kdrama candy

Suzy has improved a lot in her last drama. And her acting in the movie is superb. I hope she take this.

Sorry but in Architecture 101 the two male leads rowed the boat, by all means! The ladies just made a very beautiful frame for the audiences. Nothing more, nothing less. Unless you've not watched the movie, of course!

About the It Girl remark, I always thought Krystal was the ultimate It Girl not only for her looks (she's pretty with a non-standard beauty, in my opinion) but also for her personal style and group musical style (since f(x) has many amazing and different music). Wish she had more interesting projects. About Suzy, she is really pretty. Can't say anything about her acting because I have never seen anything she has done. There's only one thing I can say: There are idols who are great actors and keep improving, after all.

I slighty gave suzy a chance when I heard she was offered the role Oh Cho Rim in GWSS but in the end Shink Se Kyung got it (thank God!). But as Heong Sol....No please. I like her and I don't want to ruin her reputation by taking this risk.

Park Shin Hye as Han Seol? I felt her acting improved since I last saw her (Pinocchio).

She can do embarrassing pretty well (Flower Boy Next Door) .....

Just a thought..

NOOO!!!!
1. her image is different than what I think of Hong Sul to be
2. based on what people said about her acting skills, I doubt she'll be able to pull off the complexity of Hong Sul well. Hong Sul may seem ordinary, but she's no ordinary. She has pretty complex emotions and it needs a good actress to act it out especially because the whole story is told from Hong Sul's pov. I'll be so angry if they ruin Hong Sul character because of lacking acting skill because Hong Sul is my favorite female lead of all time and plays a crucial role in this story

I agree with all your points and must add this one crucial note:

Hong Sul brings out the best and worst in both Jung and In-ho. Her personality must jive well with both male characters. Since Park Hae Jin is already a force to reckon with, I can't see Suzy bringing the fierceness of Jung to surface. She's good in Gu Family Book, but I found her reacting to Seung-Gi's character, not the other way around.

Here, Hong Sul has to be the catalyst for both men to reveal who they really are. Therefore she has to be a force to reckon with also. Suzy cannot do this, not now at least. Give her a few more romantic comedies and I'll be willing to believe in her abilities.

If Suzy is coming up as a contender for this role, I'm scared for who will act In-Ho. Really scared.
