Seo Kang Joon Opens Up About “Cheese in the Trap” Controversy
Viewers had previously showed their dissatisfaction with the decreasing film time for Yoo Jung and the lack of storyline between Yoo Jung and Hong Seol’s relationship. The original comic writer Soonkki had complained about the production process as well.
Seo Kang Joon, who plays the role of Baek In Ho, soon became the target of viewers, as he was seen as the “new male lead.” He first became unpopular among viewers when some speculated he changed the script to his preferences with Producer Lee Yoon Jung. The rumors first started during an event he attended with his actor group 5urprise. During the event, he spoke to the press along the lines of, “I changed the lines I didn’t feel were good enough.” Viewers soon linked this to Park Hae Jin’s decreasing airtime.
However, Seo Kang Joon made it clear that this was not true.
“It is impossible for a rookie like me to change the story line or script,” Seo Kang Joon said.
“Sometimes I add in improvisations or change the tone of the sentences to make it seem cozier, but I never changed the substance of the script,” he said. “It’s not an area I can touch.”
“I’m sad to see all the fans who are unsatisfied, and I also understand what they feel,” he said.
Meanwhile, he also complimented his fellow actors Park Hae Jin and Kim Go Eun. On Park Hae Jin, he described him as “a caring gentlemen,” while he painted Kim Go Eun as “a flexible and thankful actor who knows how to act with me.”
