Movie channel OCN's new seven-episode thriller "Trap" is off to a good start with its second episode scoring 3.6 percent viewership, according to Nielsen Korea, Monday. The show beat all other programs aired in the same time slot thanks to its exciting storyline.
The series, starring A-list actor Lee Seo-jin, revolves around a prominent TV news anchorman who falls into an enigmatic trap.
"I have trust in director Lee Jae-kyu and wanted to do what I am doing," said Lee explaining in a press release why he took the role. "The drama will display unexpected twists that some viewers might find shocking."
