The main poster and trailer for Netflix’s original drama ‘A Killer Paradox‘ have been released. ‘A Killer Paradox’ tells the story of an ordinary man who accidentally starts killing and the detective who relentlessly chases him. With news of appearances by actor Choi Woo-shik, known for ‘Parasite‘, and actor Son Suk-ku, who left a strong impression in ‘The Roundup‘, it is already being touted as an anticipated release for February.
Official Trailer Summary
The main trailer released on the 29th begins with the incident that completely turned the life of the protagonist, Lee Tang (played by Choi Woo-shik). Lee Tang, who had no retaliation in his life, accidentally kills a person.
As Detective Jang Nangam (played by Son Suk-ku) approaches him, who is shaking with fear and guilt, his anxiety grows. However, the atmosphere reverses when he sees the news that the victim he killed was actually a serial killer. Moreover, when he hears that there is no increase despite killing two people, Lee Tang is reborn as a person who punishes those who deserve to die, from a murderer.
Encouraged by someone, Lee Tang continues to commit murders without hesitation. The book ‘Crime and Punishment‘ burning in flames implies Lee Tang’s dangerous course in a dilemma. And behind Lee Tang, who faces his reflection in the mirror, a copy of ‘Is he a hero sent by God or a villain to be judged?’ is shown. What will be his fate? Already, their chase is expected.
Reasons to Anticipate in February
‘A Killer Paradox’ is based on the webtoon of the same name by the author Kkoma-Bi, which caused a sensation during its serialization with its groundbreaking story. The anticipation is already high with director Lee Chang-hee, who directed the drama ‘Strangers from Hell‘ and the movie ‘The Vanished‘, taking on the direction once again. The performances of actors Choi Woo-shik and Son Suk-ku, who have added their own colors to the distinctive original characters, are also points not to be missed.
In an interview, Choi Woo-shik revealed that he focused on the psychological changes that the protagonist Lee Tang experiences, and made efforts to ensure that the situations Lee Tang faces and the concerns and emotions he experiences as he continues to commit murders are well conveyed.
Actor Son Suk-ku also revealed that he acted to well express the many conflicts that the detective Jang Nangam, who chases Lee Tang, experiences between his professional consciousness and ethics as a detective. He emphasized that he acted with attention to the psychological changes of the detective Jang Nangam, to the extent that he might even suspect that he might become a person with more dangerous thoughts than the criminal.
