Netflix is ready to serve a murder thriller show right before Valentine’s Day to spice things up before everything becomes mellow and romantic. A Killer Paradox is a Netflix original series that will be available to stream starting February 9.

Cast, crew, and adaptation of A Killer Paradox

Based on a webtoon of the same name, A Killer Paradox has won awards at the Korea Contents Awards, the Reader’s Cartoon Grand Awards, and Today’s Korean Cartoon Award. Directed by Lee Chang Hee, A Killer Paradox is written by Kim Da Min. It stars Parasite's Choi Woo Shik (Lee Tang), Son Suk Ku (Jang Nan Gam), and Lee Hee Joon (Song Chon) in the leading roles.

The teaser of A Killer Paradox and its contents

On January 11, 2024, the show also released its teaser, which featured two people playing a cat-and-mouse game while getting better at what they do. Lee Tang, essayed by Choi Woo, is a bored, ordinary college student who also works at the supermarket.


However, in an unfortunate encounter with a violent man, when Lee Tang ends up killing him, he realises a peculiar power in him to identify evil doers and criminals. That is how he realises that he has killed a killer. But this awakens a strange urge in him to kill more criminals, ending up in a paradox between his own morality, redemption, and killer urges.

Hot on his trail, other than the cops, is the gritty detective Jang Nan Gam, ever-cat-like, prowling and sniffing for hidden clues. His instinct and experience draw him closer to Lee Tang as the latter scrambles to play a convincing innocent college boy while being a vigilante on his own clock.

The cat-and-mouse game between Lee Tang and Jang Nan Gam in A Killer Paradox is reminiscent of mediaeval jousting but with a sleeker angle to it, like a modern-day duel between two fencers with a score to settle. With promises of gore, humour, violence, vigilantism, and serial killing, the ‘hapless killer turned serial killer’ trope always hits the spot if executed well by the director.
