A Killer Paradox

Killing a criminal—does it make you a hero or a demon?

A dilemma drives the upcoming Korean series on Netflix.

Choi Woo Shik, renowned for his role in "Parasite," takes on the role of a young man entangled in accidental deaths. The series is set to premiere on February 9th.

Choi Woo Shik's career has been marked by dark and ambivalent narratives, exemplified by his notable performance in the Oscar-winning film "Parasite" in 2019. In this acclaimed movie, he portrayed one of the Kims, a cunning family that infiltrates the lives of wealthy inhabitants in a luxurious house. Returning to his roots after a lead role in a romantic comedy, Choi is back with the Netflix series "A Killer Paradox," where his character finds himself unintentionally involved in murder. The miniseries is scheduled to debut on February 9th.

Between good and evil

The official trailer unveils the tormented Lee Tang (Choi), a subdued young man entangled in an unintentional altercation that resulted in a fatality. Consumed by guilt and fear, he braces himself for imminent capture. However, upon surrendering to the police, the protagonist stumbles upon a shocking revelation: the victim of this homicide is a serial killer. Adding to the mystery, the evidence of Lee Tang's crime inexplicably vanishes. The series' posters pose the question, "A fallen hero from the sky, or an unpunished sinner?" Simultaneously, Detective Jang Nam Gam (Son Suk Ku) relies on his instincts to uncover the truth behind the murder, leading him into a much more intricate case.

The narrative centers on Lee Tang's perspective on his own actions, delving into themes of morality, justice, and personal transformation. The series unfolds Lee's journey from an ordinary man with little courage to defend himself to a self-proclaimed vigilante dispensing justice independently. The ensemble also features Lee Hee Joon (Behind Every Star), Kim Yo Han (Summer Strike), and Hyun Bong Shik (The Monster of Old Seoul).

Directed by Lee Chang Hee (Strangers from Hell) and scripted by Kim Da Min, "A Killer Paradox" draws its inspiration from a webtoon of the same name created by Kkomabi, a digital comic available online through the Naver Webtoon app.
