So……… a few years ago there was this little webtoon adaptation of a drama called Cheese in The Trap. During the first half of the drama I was 100% hooked and all was right in the Dramaverse. But then things such as behind the scene turmoil, diva actors, and nutty netizens got involved. Not to mention, all of the crazyiness surrounding the script and what the Webtoon writer wanted vs what the screenwriter wanted. It pretty much turned into a giant mess and the second half of the drama was a disaster.
So imagine my shock when they announced that they were going to create a movie adaptation right as the drama was ending. Personally, it just didn’t make sense. Especially since they recast the whole thing with the exception of the leading man. What is the point? Will any of the issues with the plot be fixed? Am I willing to sit through two hours of possible torture, simply to find out if it is better than the disaster it is based on? Turns out I will. The trailer makes it look a lot less muddled and as far as I can tell Park Hae Jin and Oh Yeon Seo might have chemistry. I guess what it comes down to is that since it is only two hours I am willing to sacrifice the time to see if there can be any closure for my feelings in regards to this piece of work. What about you? Are you willing to give this project a second chance? Let me know in the comments and be tuned for my review when it becomes available with subs.
