Actress Kim Go-eun was never offered a role in the movie version of “Cheese in the Trap,” according to her agency Jangin Entertainment.

In an interview with local media outlets, her agency confirmed that Kim had no plans to star in the movie “Cheese in the Trap,” as she was not offered a role.

“Kim was part of the TV drama cast as the lead female character, Hong Sul. However, we have never received any news or proposals over its movie version,” they said.

The webtoon-based drama “Cheese in the Trap” was a huge hit in both Korea and China when it aired earlier this year, but it faced controversies due to problems between the cast and production team, as well as the webtoon’s writer.

The movie version of “Cheese in the Trap” has already begun casting, with actor Park Hae-jin promising to join under the condition the original author participates in the production.

The film is to be led by star movie producer Lee Dong-ho, the director of “Inside Men” (2015) and “Architecture 101” (2012).
