According to a statement released by Mountain Movement Story on March 24, former 2NE1 member Sandara Park has been cast in the film adaptation of the popular webtoon “Cheese In The Trap.”
Sandara Park has been consistently acting in various projects like “The Return of Iljimae,” “Dr. Ian,” “Missing Korea,” and “One More Happy Ending.” She will also be making her big screen debut through the film “One Step” this April.
The actress will be taking on the role of Jang Bora, who is the energetic and honest best friend of main character Hong Seol. A source from the production staff stated, “We were very surprised by how well Sandara Park was able to pull of the blunt, refreshingly straightforward character of Jang Bora and decided she was very well-qualified for the role.”
Acting opposite Sandara Park in the role of Kwon Eun Taek will be actor Kim Hyun Jin. Kwon Eun Taek is a handsome and lovable character who has a one-sided crush on Jang Bora and tries to protect and take care of her. Kim Hyun Jin first debuted as a fashion model and will be making his debut as an actor through JTBC’s upcoming drama “Man To Man.” This means that Kim Hyun Jin will be working alongside Park Hae Jin in both “Man to Man” and the film adaptation of “Cheese In The Trap,” as the actor is in a lead role for both projects.
The cast and crew will have their first official meeting together on March 25 and will begin filming in April.
Meanwhile, the main cast for the film adaptation of “Cheese In The Trap” was announced in February; however, some fans of the original webtoon and drama adaptation have expressed disappointment as they believe the casting is not realistic.
