On July 18, a media outlet reported that there was a high possibility that Kim Go Eun would appear in tvN’s upcoming Monday-Tuesday drama “Cheese in the Trap” as the female lead. At this, tvN responded, “The auditions are currently in progress,” and added that “Kim Go Eun and a number of other actresses have been suggested for the female lead and we will be making a decision soon.” They also said, “Nothing has been decided as of yet.”
On July 18, however, Kim Go Eun’s agency said, “It is true that she was offered a role in ‘Cheese in the Trap,’ and it was one of the works that we were examining.” However, they relayed, “It was a good original work so we gave it a lot of thought, but in the end, we decided to decline the offer.”
Meanwhile, the male lead, Yoo Jeong, is confirmed to be Park Hae Jin. The work tells a love story between Hong Seol, the female lead, and her boyfriend and university senior Yoo Jeong.
The drama is set to air around the middle of October.
