[Review] A Killer Paradox

We’re back with a new K-drama review and this time we’re writing about the limited series ‘A Killer Paradox’ which came out this month on Netflix. Let’s dive in!

A Killer Paradox

The series was written by Kim Da-min and directed by Lee Chang-hee and was based on the webtoon created by Kkomabi. Lee also worked on ‘Hell is other people/Strangers from Hell’.

Lee Tang, our main character excellently portrayed by Choi Woo-Shik, is struggling to find his passion. He’s studying, working at a convenience store and is just going through the motions. That is, until one evening where he accidentally murders someone. Later it turns out that it’s not just anyone, it was a serial killer.

Detective Jang Nan-Gam is the detective in charge of the case and has a gut feeling about Lee Tang even though he can’t prove anything. Jang is played by Son Suk-ku and as always he’s excellent.

Lee discovers he really has a knack for murdering serial killers or just plain bad people. He gets a tingly feeling, a bit like Spiderman and with the help of Roh Bin (think of Batman’s sidekick) they form a formidable team murdering baddies.


This eight episode series was excellent! The writing is well done, the acting superb but what got me the most were the excellent scene transitions and interesting cinematography in general. ‘A Killer Paradox’ is a must-see show if you’re into action and police dramas.
