HanaKimi’s “Cheese in the trap” ending ~ point of view
There is a lot of talk about “Cheese in the trap” ending. Here I am to express how I felt watching the last two episodes. To be honest unlike most people, I wasn’t that disappointed in general, but definitely there was something missing…
Was it because I was interested in all the characters? The fact that I liked how the writers kept unrevealing emotions or lastly that I haven’t read the webtoon? But unlike other endings where my frustration made me want to smash my laptop, this one was surely interesting.
I’m gonna be focusing to the parts that got my attention the most. Firstly on In Ha’s hospitalization. Did I feel bad for her? Hmmm yes that was a bit rough, but her temper really had gotten out of hand. There is difference in trying to help someone by mental support because you care, than helping because you don’t want to get your name involved. Well In Ha didn’t seem changed, after all in the last episode she acted like her usual annoying self. At least she realised the best person to be by her side was the short senior. I Mean I loved how he stayed, at the hospital next to In Ho worrying about her. He even went to Seol for help, that guy is my hero ♥ The other couples were cute too and the stories were lovable a bit short maybe, but that’s what happens when you have three main characters to cover.
Because In Ho was definitely not a second lead. Did it bother me that he got plenty air time in the last episodes? It didn’t. Honesty I loved In Ho’s character and although, similar types in other dramas are loud and frustrating, Seo Kang Joon did a great job. But I wish as much as his personality and story was explained, the same thing would happen with Yoo Jung.
That is what concerns me the most. I never fully got to understand Yoo Jung’s character and I really wanted to. He was the most interesting and all we got where some short summed up flashbacks. How did Seol change him? Was he really changed by the relationship? Why did he leave? How did he settle things? Did he really shorten things out with himself and then read Seol’s mails? All these things, I feel like they stayed questions and where things that needed to be explained.
Another character that didn’t redeem himself was Yoo Jung’s father. There wasn’t a closure to his relationship with his son and the Baek siblings.
In conclusion what I loved in “Cheese in the Trap” was that is showed realistic human emotions and characters. I don’t regret watching the drama and when I get to score it, it is going to get an 8/10 for sure!
What did you guys think about the ending? I haven’t read the webtoon (I wish, but I don’t have time), is it that different and disappointing compared to the drama?
