The Coupang Play series “The Bait” is a crime thriller series that tracks the secrets surrounding the death of the criminal of the largest fraud case in history. The series is expected to captivate viewers at once with its solid story between the mysterious murder case at the moment and the fraud case that shook the Republic of Korea in the past, unexpected developments and plot twists, and thorough acting by the main actors.

“The Bait” is receiving huge attention as the first comeback after 5 years of global Hallyu star Jang Geun Seok. On top of that, the fresh combination of Heo Sung Tae, who is well-known as an all-time villain character, and Lee Elijah, who will play the axis between the present and the past, is raising expectations. In addition, Kim Hong Sun, master of the thrilling genre who directed “Voice,” “The Guest” and “Money Heist: Joint Economic Area” will hold the megaphone to showcase the essence of a well-made crime thriller.

Through the first poster of “The Bait”, viewers can get a glimpse of the tense confrontation between Goo Do Han (Jang Geun Suk), a righteous detective who tries to reveal the truth of the case, and Noh Sang Cheon (Heo Sung Tae), a criminal who holds clues about the past fraud case and the current murder case. The simple yet intense phrase “Catch to Live vs. Die to Live” adds more interest to the confrontation between the two. In particular, attention is focused on the meaning of the paradoxical phrase “Die to Live”.

The trailer for “The Bait” shows Noh Sang Cheon, who is known to have died while escaping after committing a fraud of 5 trillion won, being identified as a suspect in the murder case. Whether Noh Sang Cheon is really dead, who the real culprit of the current murder case is if Noh Sang Cheon is dead, and what the hidden link between the past case and the current case can be found in Coupang Play’s “The Bait” from Jan 27th (Fri).
