Cheese in the Trap (2016)

Director: Lee Yoon-jung
Writer: Kim Nam-hee, Go Sun-hee
Stars: Park Hae-jin, Kim Go-eun, Seo Kang-joon

The drama focuses on the life and relationships of a group of university students, particularly the difficult relationship between Hong Seol and her senior Yoo Jung.


They’ve given much thought for this series, at least before the final episode (which kind of lacking or something). Overall, the series gives off an indie vibes–from the shots to the soundtrack. This series if reminiscent of the 90s coming-of-age serieses I used to watched. Very different from the Korean romantic-comedies/fantasies I’ve seen recently. This series wanted to show “real” life. Though I find it too dramatic to be real. Like, how come all those people who seem to all have mental issues come from a single department and whose lives are all entangled somehow. But anyway, I do agree on the realistic portrayal of school issues.

If you want a breather from the cheesy Kdramas, this one is for you. It’s very sensible, acting was great, and the soundtracks are pretty cool, too.
