At a press conference for the much-anticipated film adaptation of “Cheese in the Trap” on March 7, actress Oh Yeon Seo talked about taking on the famous character of Hong Seol.
“I had heard before that I looked like Hong Seol in the original webtoon,” said Oh Yeon Seo. “I worked hard on my expressions and tone so that I could make my own unique ‘Hong Seol.’”
She added, “The webtoon and drama both received a lot of love, so it’s true that there was some pressure.” She also said, “There was a lot of narration, so I worried about that. I talked a lot with the director [about the role].”
Oh Yeon Seo also said she had a good time filming the movie over the year-long period thanks to her co-stars. In particular, she mentioned that she had been glad to be able to work together with Sandara Park, who plays Hong Seol’s friend Jang Bo Ra in the story.
