Netflix Confirms Choi Woo-shik & Son Seok-gu’s “A Killer Paradox” Release In February With Teaser Video

On January 11th, Netflix announced that “A Killer Paradox” will premiere on February 9th. Based on a webtoon of the same name, “A Killer Paradox” tells the story of an ordinary man who accidentally starts murdering and detective who chases after him.

Actor Choi Woo-shik plays Lee Tang, a college student who only murders criminals who committed serious crimes, and Son Seok-gu takes on the role of detective Jang Nan-gam, who investigates Lee Tang’s murder case. Lee Hee-joon appears as Song Chon, a former detective who solves the clues of the murders by chasing after Lee Tang.

This drama was directed by OCN’s “Hell Is Other People” and “The Vanished” director Lee Chang-hee. The script was written by Kim Da-min, who won Daesang in the Feature Film category at the 2019 Gyeonggi Script Planning and Development. 

The teaser video released on the same day showed Lee Tang (Choi Woo-shik), who feels lethargic due to his boring daily life, getting slapped. On the next day, he is indiscriminately assaulted by a man while on his way home from the convenience store where he works part-time and cannot hold back his anger. Eventually, he takes out a hammer and fights back then accidentally kills the man. The phrase “The Killed, The Killer” appears on the screen, heralding the change in Lee Tang’s life.

In the meantime, Detective Jang Nan-gam shows up and senses suspiciousness from Lee Tang as he leaves a meaningful message, saying “Do you think regular chewing gum and bubble gum are different?”.

The chase between Lee Tang and Jang Nan-gam will be revealed in the official broadcast.
