Watch: Jang Keun Suk Inches Closer To The Full Truth Behind Heo Sung Tae’s Crimes In Teasers For “Decoy: Part 2”
Popular Coupang Play series “Decoy” is coming back soon with Part 2!
“Decoy” (also known as “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. 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.
Part 1 premiered early this year in over 186 countries around the world and received an average overseas rating of 9.4, quickly becoming Coupang Play’s most popular drama.
Ahead of the premiere of Part 2, “Decoy” has shared an exciting poster and teaser. The poster is taken from the perspective of someone hiding between trees while watching Goo Do Han’s tense final fight in the middle of a snowstorm. The blood this fight leaves behind has a stark contrast to the bright white snow they’re surrounded by and leads to the poster’s copy that reads, “Chasing the final trap to the end.”
The drama’s Part 2 teaser is just as intense as the poster and previews the deeper story behind this intense case. As Goo Do Han carefully focuses on pictures of murder victims, he realizes, “There is no one in this case who is wholeheartedly telling the truth. Eventually, we have to find out the truth from those who have died.”
Cheon Na Yeon (Lee Elijah) implies that there’s a larger story behind the cover-up of these murders as she states, “If the murder investigations were done properly from the start, the deaths could’ve been prevented.” The story heats up as Lee Byung Joon (Lee Seung Joon) holds up a knife in front of a crowd of cameras and cries out, “Noh Sang Cheon is alive!”
Goo Do Han begins putting the pieces together and concludes that the goal behind the murders of everyone associated with Noh Sang Cheon is to make Noh Sang Cheon himself appear. A dramatic car crash then leaves Noh Sang Cheon covered in his own blood. Right as Goo Do Han asks, “Noh Sang Cheon is alive, right?,” his eyes shoot open.
After it comes to light that Noh Sang Cheon is alive after supposedly dying eight years ago, numerous people step up to find him, leaving Goo Do Han curious to discover the real reason they’re after him.
As someone tries to make a deal with Goo Do Han, another person explains that Goo Do Han is merely baiting them. Noh Sang Cheon confidently states, “If you betray me, you will all die.” Along with a dramatic series of action scenes, the teaser asks, “Who does the final trap belong to?”
