After much consideration, JYP Entertainment has declined the casting offer given to Suzy for upcoming drama, Cheese in the Trap.
In a statement release by the agency on July 13th, they acknowledged the offer for Suzy to play the female lead on Cheese in the Trap, but stated, however, that they have declined it after an intensive discussion.
Suzy would have played the role of Hong Seol and be acting alongside confirmed male lead, Park Hae Jin, for the popular webtoon of the same title. There were also a lot of hype behind the possible casting offer as netizens gave in mixed reactions on her selection.
Meanwhile, Cheese in the Trap will be directed by Lee Yoon Jung, the same director for Coffee Prince and Heart To Heart, and will air on tvN in October.
