The final cast of the theatrical release of Cheese in the Trap is now pretty much complete, with the recent announcement that Dara and Kim Hyun Jin have been added to the list of stars who will be bringing the popular webtoon to the big screen.

Joining the star-studded cast comprised of Park Hae JinOh Yeon Seo, and Park Ki Woong, are Sandara Park and Kim Hyun Jin, according to a statement made by the production company behind the upcoming Cheese in the Trap movie, Mountain Movement Story. Last month, when the initial cast without the two newest additions was announced, many fans took to the internet to voice their displeasure with the choices. The actors were too old, they said, to be realistically playing the characters in a story about college students. 

So how does this new addition of Dara, who is 32 years old, and Kim Hyun Jin affect all this? Well, Kim is 22, so his age is obviously not a problem. And truth be told, neither should the other cast members' ages be, who obviously are too old to be in college, because it's called "movie magic" for a reason. With the right makeup and mannerisms, it shouldn't be a problem for already young and fit-looking 30-something-year-old performers to look 10 years younger. The actors were obviously chosen for specific reasons and what they potentially bring to the project. As for Dara and Kim Hyun Jin, those in authority think they're perfect for the roles they have been given. "Sandara Park and Kim Hyun Jin were part of the final casting," said a member of the production team. "Sandara Park surprised us with how well she was able to pull off Jang Bora’s character and tone. Kim Hyun Jin matches Kwon Eun Taek’s model-like figure and his fresh, hot guy image will be sure to bring high expectations. The two have many similarities to their characters." 

The first table reading was five days ago, and shooting for the long-awaited movie version of Cheese in the Trap starts in no time.
