Honestly it started off pretty good but then ... I don't even know !I didn't like how there was absolutely no character development for HyeJi . It was also a hassle to watch this because if you want to watch hidden clips you have to go on their tiktok or else there would be a lot of unanswered questions. Could've been better but it wasn't. It seemed promising at first but it got rather shitty. The characters were realistic and I liked that about this show .

It had so many potentials but it just got boring towards the end. Too many speculations on Woojin being the stalker that the writers made him be seen as a bad person when he is not - Well actually in a way he is kind of invasive but.. yeah. Anyways if youre bored you can watch this webdrama as it is short and can fill up your time without taking much of it but just dont get high expectations .

Good OST

Plot: Started off strong, I was hooked after the first episode. But then after 5 ish episodes it started to get boring. There wasn't much character development and the ending didn't feel finished/rush. There is no explanation as to why the guys liked the female lead. This is a short webdrama, so you can't really expect much.

Acting: All the actors and actresses have such good visuals. They're all rookies, but did a great job acting their role.

Music: The only thing that kept me going tbh. I love all their OST. Please go check them out, they're all from small unknown artist, so please support! The title OST for this drama is "Running through the night" by Seori and "LOVE" by Leebada. I love the OST is so calming to listen to, definitely my taste!

Rewatch: Wouldn't rewatch, but I would be keen to watch a season 2 if they had one!

Anti-climatic

The first few episodes were quite gripping with an interesting storyline, but as the drama progressed, things started to not make any sense and it was rushed. Here are a few reasons I think this way:

The drama did not offer an explanation as to why certain things happened, for example, the stalker. We don't know much about him and his motive into why he started stalking Hye Ji. The last scene where the stalker was being confronted by Kyunwoo could have added more clarity for the scene to be more engaging and gripping.

Both characters of Kyunwoo and Woojin did well in their roles, but again, the drama did not offer much to the story about Hye Ji and Woojin's friendship in high school in the aired episodes, which leads to how Woojin developed feelings for her. With Kyunwoo, it just felt a bit sudden that he started having feelings for her after that incident.

There was a lack of character development for Hye Ji which, to my dismay, made it difficult to watch. I don't like how the writers make the two guys baby her. I understand they were being nice and show their sincerity, but at times, it just became too much to the point it made it seel like Hye Ji was incapable of looking after herself.

And lastly, the TikTok hidden clips. It's a bit of a hassle to watch hidden clips and for those who don't use it, nor have access to it, it's just going to leave them with so many unanswered questions.

Other than those pointers, the drama did definitely live up to its name. Making us suspect everyone who was involved.

Overall, I wouldn't recommend it. Maybe just a quick watch if you're bored. If this has a season 2, then great, but if things just end here, then the drama was quite anti-climatic

A film about lies - intrigue - friendships - friends who are not friends - love - fake love and

a stalker with delusions. And everything revolves around HyeJi, who becomes a victim of some of the above mentioned points relatively early in the series. Apart from some cafes, residential eyes, everything mainly takes place in a Korean university. HyeJi really doesn't have it easy. She understands only after a while that she is on the losing side all the way. As in so many Korean dramas, all problems resolve in the final episode.

Each episode is a very short 12 minutes long, so you can comfortably finish all the episodes on a rainy afternoon with some snacks on the couch. I read in some reviews that they got bored in the last third. Makes me wonder what you have to pack into 12 episodes x 12 minutes = 144 minutes to get a "cheap thrill" every minute. The film must have time to develop. It has to breathe.

In the penultimate episode, you get a hint for a surprising twist. That's why there's the term "thriller" in the film description. I think that is completely wrong. It is a social drama and deals with the social status of women in society. Yes, you will finde some thrills in the last minutes of the series, but does not give the right to call the series a thriller. I think that's why the series got so many bad reviews, because it's in the wrong category.


What really bugged me, though, was the film's score. It was so bad. And the two drunken songs were played over and over again. It was hanging out of my ears. No matter if sad, or funny, always the same songs. Bad.

On top of that, the main character is too blind to see the obvious and doesn't listen to her gut. Take your time and think about what you want. Then you can be taken seriously.

A few more lines about the role of women in society.
Dear female readers of countries that have an old (dusty) view of the role of women in society. It's really time for you to stand up for your rights and start actively changing society to equal rights. The ancient values are all invalid anyway, as the modern country has embraced the values of the western world. Men AND women need to emancipate themselves. Expecting a man to fulfill certain requirements (have a good job, come from a good family) is just as wrong as thinking that the woman belongs in the kitchen and is solely responsible for raising the children.
All images of an old past world.

Good Enough

" Trap " promises to be a thriller following a romantic story that has a darker twist to it. However, that was not the case for this web drama. Honestly, it was just another college mini drama with a girl having problems with her love life. Sure, there was the twist of the stalker, but that was overshadowed by the relationship plotlines.

So, the main story was okay, as it explored how a young girl, heartbroken, finds love again and starts trusting people. Meanwhile, she is being stalked by a weird guy, a plotline that the drama chose to use as a game of guessing who's the real culprit. That part was an interesting twist, but it was utilized in only a few episodes.

As for the performances, all actors and actresses did a good job with their performances and the couples had chemistry.

So, overall, 5.5 out of 10.

legalzinho

Achei legalzinho pra passar o tempo apesar de não ter um grande desenvolvimento.
A vida amorosa da protagonista Hye Ji era só a bagaça, seu até então namorado lhe botou um belo de um par de chifre com sua "amiga". Depois disso ela conhece outro cara que parece ser um amor mas ao mesmo tempo não parecia tão confiável.
O drama teve um momento que me deixou curiosa porque apareceu um perseguidor/stalker da Hye Ji e sua identidade era um grande mistério nos fazendo desconfiar de todos, mas depois se resolveu do nada e também não explicou muito sobre o motivo dele perseguir ela (só mostrava ele falando que ela teve contato visual com ele e que ele entendeu o que ela queria dizer com aquilo ).
Como foi algo feito para divulgar o app vizinho "tico teco" então tinham vídeos que só conseguia ver por lá (eles chamavam de clipes ocultos) e como eu não tenho conta no app... fiquei sem ver e com certeza sem algumas detalhes que fariam diferença.
Mas no geral até que não é ruim, é bem rapidinho (12 minutos por ep) e a atuação foi boa, apesar de não ter um thriller que prometeram, teve traição, inveja e ciúmes .
