Jang Geun Suk , Heo Sung Tae and Lee Elijah expressed their thoughts on the ending of “Decoy”/ “Bait” Part 1 and what to expect in the upcoming Part 2 of the drama.
In the 5th and 6th episodes of “Bait,” which was released on February 10, Jung Jae Hwang, a leading suspect in a serial murder case, was found to be dead. Episodes 5 and 6 saw a 19.4% increase in the number of viewers compared to the previous week, marking the second consecutive week of rise in ratings.
Earlier, Jung Jae Hwang was a member of the VIXX network victims’ group, and later it has been pointed out that he committed a series of murders against Noh Sang Cheon’s closest aides. When the serial murder case was about to end due to the death of Jung Jae Hwang, all members of the VIXX Network Fraud Victims Group received a text message warning of murder once again. As a result, the investigation went back to square one, and questions were raised about Jae Hwang’s death, which was seen only as committing suicide, as well as who the real culprit of the case was.
In the past, the story of Noh Sang Cheon, who is gradually becoming big by engaging in fraud against the entire nation, was also depicted. The Nowfree business, which had been on a roll with powerful people on its back and even famous investors, was found to be fraudulent faster than expected, and Noh Sang Cheon was in crisis. But he plotted a bolder fraud to overcome the crisis. His new tactic will be revealed in Part 2 of “Bait.”
With part 1 of “Bait” wrapped-up, leading actors Jang Geun Suk, Heo Sung Tae and Lee Elijah thanked the viewers for tuning in for the drama and expressed their thoughts on ending of Part 1 of “Bait.”
Jang Geun Suk, a lawyer-turned-violent criminal Goo Do Han, said, “Thank you for enjoying ‘Bait’, and in Part 2, the case will enter a new phase. April 7 will come soon, so please wait a little longer.”
Heo Sung Tae, who plays the evilest fraud criminal Noh Sang Cheon, predicted the performance of the all-time villain saying, “So far, this was only a taste. You’ll see the real essence of a real bad guy in Part 2. Even while I was acting, I was being cursed. So please hate me as much as you want to.”
Lee Elijah, who plays Jeon Na Yeon, a reporter who investigates the truth of the mysterious murder with Goo Do Han, said, “There are still many truths that are yet to be revealed, and there are things that need to be solved and please show a lot of attention to Part 2 which will make you more breathless.”
Meanwhile, eight years after the death of the criminal in the biggest fraud case since the accident, the crime thriller “Bait,” which tracks the secrets surrounding Goo Do Han as he was identified as a suspect in the murder case, will release Part 2 from April 7. Part 2 presents six episodes every Friday.
