The scripts for all sixteen episodes of tvN’s new drama “Cheese in the Trap” are now completed and ready to be filmed!
The drama is based on the popular webtoon of the same name written by Soonkki. The webtoon began its run in 2010 and is a huge hit, with over 1 million views on each of its episodes and totaling about 1.1 billion views for all episodes combined. Fans of the webtoon were naturally both excited and nervous to hear that it would be turned into a drama.
Thankfully, fan reactions to the first three episodes of the show that have now aired have largely been positive. Many fans are commenting that the show manages to keep the flow of the original while adding more things to enjoy, and many are happy with the story development and actors’ performances as well.
It was announced on January 11 that all sixteen scripts have been finalized. A representative from the show has also previously confirmed that they will not be extending beyond sixteen episodes. As the scripts have been completed at such an early stage, it seems like we can look forward to solid story development from this drama.
Since the original webtoon is still ongoing, there has also been a lot of attention paid to the fact that the endings of the two works will most likely be different. Director Lee Yoon Jung previously responded to this by commenting, “We met with the original webtoon writer Soonkki. She wanted an ending that was just our own.” She adds, “It’s planned that while the flow will be similar, the ending will be slightly different. It’s similar but it will end with a different event.”
“Cheese in the Trap” stars Park Hae Jin and Kim Go Eun, and airs every Monday and Tuesday on tvN.
