Cheese In The Trap
Plot according to Wiki
The drama focuses on the life and relationships of a group of university students, particularly the difficult relationship between Hong Seol (Kim Go-eun) and her senior Yoo Jung (Park Hae-jin).
Jung is the rich heir to Taerang Group and seemingly has the perfect life, but also displays psychopathic tendencies, which causes Seol to take time off school to get away from him. When she returns through a scholarship that was intended for Jung, he is unexpectedly nice to her and asks her on a date. They begin an awkward relationship which is further complicated by the arrival of Baek In-ho and his sister Baek In-ha, childhood friends of Jung who were both adopted into his family after running away from their abusive aunt as children. In-ha is in love with Jung, but he dismisses her feelings. She leads an extravagant lifestyle funded by other men's money, and often behaves antagonistically. In-ho moves into the area while he is being pursued by gangsters, but strikes up a friendship with Seol and begins to work at her parents' restaurant.
As well as managing her conflicted feelings towards Jung and In-ho, Seol tries to cope with everyday struggles in her school and work life, such as unwanted advances and classmates that make her do their work for them. She is helped by her two best friends Jang Bo-ra (Park Min-ji) and Kwon Eun-taek (Nam Joo-hyuk), who begin to date each other.
Why I liked this drama
This drama is funny, witty, and emotional. It is based of a webtoon which I read and loved and was so eager to see adapted to a drama. At first I was a bit skeptical of how the drama would be like the webtoon especially since the webtoon was still ongoing the first half of the show. I was not disappointed it surpassed my expectations.
The character growth was amazing and the plot was not rushed or seemed forced. The chemistry of all the actors was great. I definitely recommend this drama for those that like comedy and romance and just enough angst to give you second lead syndrome.
Just an FYI a Cheese in The Trap Movie is in the Works
