After the release of her debut movie "One Step" earned positive reviews from critics and viewers alike, former 2NE1 member Sandara Park has begun filming for the movie adaptation of "Cheese in the Trap." The K-pop idol turned film actress was spotted on set looking the part of a college student as she mingled with her co-stars while on break.

According to a loose translation of Sandara's Line diary entry made by Parkers, Sandara said she was still the learning a lot of things about acting, but the biggest challenge for her is channeling a different character and separating that with her true personality. She said she got a lot of pointers from her director and her co-workers which helped her portray her new character.

In order to do a good job, Sandara said she listened a lot to the inputs of her fellow actors as well as re-read the script over and over. She said that in the middle of one scene, she received a compliment that she really did well. She said she is excited for the "Cheese in the Trap" movie to come out because there is an exciting scene that she still could not share to her fans because it would be a spoiler.

Sandara was cast to play the character of Jang Bo Ra, the energetic and optimistic best friend of lead character Hong Seol which will be played by Oh Yeon Se. Newbie actor Kim Hyun Jin will play Kwon Eun Taek, while Park Ki Woong and Yoo In Young will play the role of twins Baek In Ho and Baek In Ha. Park Hae Jin will reprise his role as Yoo Jin from the "Cheese in the Trap" drama version. 

In an earlier report by Kpopstarz, Sandara said that her first movie "One Step" was a huge challenge for her because she had to study her role really well. Aside from the acting, she also had to focus on improving her singing because it was a musical drama film.

"If I look back on this work later on, I think it's the most inferior work I've had, but it's also lacking in many things, but it's also like my first daughter," she said in a recent interview with Style X. For the interview, she also shared that after the disbandment of 2NE1, nothing changed with the close relationship with fellow members CL, Park Bom and Minzy. She said however, that she is enjoying exploring a different to her personality since she is now more open compared to before.
