Watch: Jang Keun Suk Is A Homicide Detective Going Up Against Notorious Criminal Heo Sung Tae In Teaser For New Crime Thriller Drama
Coupang Play has shared an action-packed trailer for its new drama “The Bait”!
“The Bait” (previously known as “Chronicle of Crime”) is a crime thriller that follows a lawyer-turned-homicide detective searching for the truth behind unsolved past cases by investigating current crimes. The series marks Jang Keun Suk’s first drama role in five years, and it will also star Heo Sung Tae and Lee Elijah.
Jang Keun Suk stars as Goo Do Han, a detective who is determined to uncover the truth after Noh Sang Cheon, the culprit of South Korea’s biggest fraud case (played by Heo Sung Tae), is named as a suspect in a present-day murder case even though he supposedly died eight years ago.
A new poster previews the upcoming fierce confrontation between Goo Do Han, a righteous detective who will stop at nothing to reveal the truth, and Noh Sang Cheon, a notorious criminal who holds the key clues to a past fraud case and the current murder case. Adding to the curiosity over the upcoming battle betwen the two men is the simple yet intense caption: “He who must catch [the culprit] in order to live vs. he who must die in order to live.”
In the trailer, Noh Sang Cheon is introduced as having committed 5 trillion won (approximately $3.9 billion) worth of fraud, then having reportedly died while on the run, leaving behind thousands of victims crushed by the significant losses they suffered.
However, eight years later, lawyer-turned-detective Goo Do Han is summoned to solve a mysterious case in which the victim claimed that Noh Sang Cheon had come to kill him. Goo Do Han then embarks on a journey to find out if Noh Sang Cheon is indeed dead, who the real culprit of the current murder case is, and what the link is between the past and the current case.

“The Bait” will premiere on January 27 and will air two episodes each week. Part 1 consists of a total of six episodes, and Part 2 will be released in the first half of 2023.
