Although tVN‘s Cheese in the Trap quickly became a fan favorite upon its broadcast, the producers of the drama have recently come under fire for mistreating Park Hae Jin and original webtoon writer Sunkki.
At first, viewers were delighted with the quality of the drama. However, as the drama progressed, fans of the webtoon noticed that it was already deviating too much from the original story, and reports later claimed that the producers of the show have blatantly refused a request of original webtoon writer Sunkki for the drama to not spoil the webtoon’s original ending.
Furthermore, netizens became outraged after discovering that many Park Hae Jin‘s lines were cut from the show despite having already been recorded, and the actor was never notified of the cast’s reward vacation trip. After hearing this, many netizens have condemned the drama producers for mistreating the two.

[+ 24901, – 1064] To the staff: When Park Hae Jin was cast I danced I was so happy. When Kim Go Eun and Seo Kang Joon were cast I hoped Park Hae Jin would run but despite my worry the producers were true to the original and the actors were amazing. However from the middle part the story was too centered around Baek In Ho, lines were changed and his part became too big in the drama. It became a mess. Park Hae Jin did his best and I can guarantee I will never watch another drama by this production.
[+ 22745, – 650] We all know that Park Hae Jin said yes to the role only because the producers pleaded with him multiple times. Is this your revenge? His role became tiny and what he had already filmed became omitted. His character turned into a psycho. He was only notified of the after party on the day of and he knew nothing of the trip all the other actors knew of. Park Hae Jin does not deserve such treatment and you producers are not worthy of him.
