Watch: Jang Keun Suk And Lee Elijah Piece Together A Puzzle Leading Them To Heo Sung Tae In “The Bait”
Upcoming Coupang Play series “The Bait” has dropped a new poster and teaser!
“The Bait” 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 (Heo Sung Tae), the culprit of South Korea’s biggest fraud case, is named as a suspect in a present-day murder case even though he supposedly died eight years ago.
The new poster features detective Goo Do Han, who persistently digs into a murder case, and Cheon Na Yeon (Lee Elijah), a reporter who joins Goo Do Han in uncovering the truth behind the case.
Surrounding the characters like pieces of a puzzle, there are pictures of a bloody murder scene, a note framing a murder on Noh Sang Cheon who is known to have already died, a crowd cheering at someone, and a person engulfed in flames.
These puzzle pieces are gathered to complete the silhouette of Noh Sang Cheon, who is known to be the worst swindler in crime history. In particular, Noh Sang Cheon’s and Goo Do Han’s faces are attached next to each other, foreshadowing an intense confrontation between the two.
Meanwhile, the second trailer that was released along with the poster previews the main pillars of the story. The clip begins with a scene in which a mysterious assailant appears deep inside a forest and kidnaps someone. After eight years, Noh Sang Cheon, who is known to have died, is named as a suspect in a murder case, and detective Goo Do Han starts digging into the case. When a voice says, “It may not be Noh Sang Cheon who is committing murders right now,” the atmosphere of the trailer takes another turn. The characters take turns omniously stating, “People who deserve to die,” “We all die together,” and “I didn’t kill them,” suggesting that more people besides Noh Sang Cheon are involved in the murder case.
