The secret to how actress Kim Go-eun perfectly transforms into Hong Seol in “Cheese in the Trap” was revealed by her agency on Wednesday.

Jangin Entertainment uploaded two photos of Kim Go-eun while she got her makeup and hair done for the drama shoot. Staff members were hurriedly touching up Kim’s hair to turn her into the female lead character in the drama.

In the photo, Kim is sitting on a chair while her stylist is attaching pieces of long, frizzy hair extensions onto her head. As Kim Go-eun’s original silky smooth hair comes up to her shoulders, hair pieces are added to create the character’s unique frizzy hairdo.

“At first, I couldn’t even go to sleep because the pieces would pull on my hair. Plus I had to brush it literally every minute so that it wouldn’t get tangled,” Kim complained.

“But as many drama fans loved the look, I overcame the pain with a sense of fulfillment.”

Kim Go-eun recently grabbed the attention of many drama fans in Korea and abroad through the webtoon-based drama series “Cheese in the Trap.”
