Eight years ago, Noh Sang Cheon, the mastermind of a financial fraud scheme that duped tens of thousands of South Korean victims into investing billions of dollars' worth of their savings into a bogus project, went on the run. He attempted to evade the law by escaping to China and the nation was rocked when news of his death broke. Now, almost a decade later, a justice-loving police detective named Goo Do Han makes a startling discovery. In the course of investigating a domestic murder case, Goo Do Han finds evidence implicating Noh Sang Cheon as a suspect. How could it be that this fraudster—thought to have died years ago—is linked to the case? It falls to Goo Do Han to try to determine if Noh Sang Cheon is actually dead or not. If he is dead, who could the real murderer be? If not, where was Noh Sang Cheon hiding all this time? As the detective continues to investigate, he begins to wonder if there might be a link between the fraud of eight years ago and the mysterious murder. (Source: Viki) Edit Translation

Dark and Gritty but so Good

Bait is a very well-plotted drama that, in only two episodes, has cleverly evolved, and if it stays its course of successfully telling the story in the coherent way it has in the next four episodes, it will be one of the best crime/thrillers of 2023. It's dark, gritty, and an in-your-face kind of crime/murder thriller that's intensely captivating. A successful strategy for keeping a mystery captivating is to maintain the core of the mystery episode-by-episode while at the same time nimbly tying in the larger picture as the other elements unfold, and Bait does it so well in just two episodes.

Everything from the cinematography, the lighting or lack of it, the set, the actors, and the theme is so well thought of it is hard not to get sucked into the drama and the story. Additionally, there's some strong acting from the ensemble cast, with Jang Geun Suk, in particular, carrying the material. He looks terrific. I didn't recognize him. I am hooked. And what a cliffhanger of an ending for the first part of this drama. Everything worked, from the serial killing mystery to the cat and mouse chase and most of all Jang Geun Suk. He is just fantastic in this drama.

Great thriller with a twist at every episode!

Just completed 6 episodes. Every episode ends with a question that begs to be answered, and it will be during the next episode.

Story:
Superb story, multilayered but connected especially in last episode. Ep 1 and 2 start slow but from Ep 3 to 6 the momentum and tension pick up very fast.

Characters:
Unpredictable characters, each with own side story which ties to the main story. Who is the decoy and who is the real criminal?

OST:
Unique unforgettable OST “Unstoppable” by artist About

My only complaint - too few episodes in one season..and no romance.. Can’t wait for season 2!
