The new thriller has taken Netflix by storm, with many viewers claiming to have “finished the series in one night”.

A Killer Paradox is about a college student who, shortly after killing a stranger, discovers that the victim is actually a serial killer.

100 full points

The thriller scored a perfect 100 out of 100 on review aggregation site Rotten Tomatoes.

The show’s audience rating, while not perfect, is quite high: 74 percent.

Netflix briefly summarizes the plot of the 8-episode thriller, which it states is suitable for those over the age of 18:

When an ordinary young man becomes embroiled in a succession of unintentional murders, he becomes embroiled in an endless game of cat-and-mouse with a cunning detective.

The South Korean crime drama stars SAG (Screen Actors Guild) award winner Choi Woo-shik, Son Suk-ku and Lee Hee-jun.

Directed by Lee Chang Hee, also known from Strangers from Hell, the thriller was written by Kim Da Min.

Choi Woo-shik, 33, is best known for his role in the Academy Award-winning Parasite.

Each episode of the series, which was added to Netflix’s extensive library earlier this month, lasts about an hour.

One person on Rotten Tomatoes wrote about the series, calling it “worth watching”:

The series is a few steps beyond the usual soulless ‘killer killing killers’ TV series or movies (e.g. Dexter or Hannibal).


Another user said:

Bombshell dramas are coming out of Korea… Oh, yeah! Choi Woo Shik, Son Suk Ku and Lee Hee Joon give great performances. Stylish and visually breathtaking. I finished the whole drama in one sitting and want more.

Some viewers called the series “amazing” and “gripping”. One of them wrote on Twitter that he finished the series in one sitting:

I watched the whole thing in one night and will be waiting patiently for the second season.

“I was hooked in 6 minutes”

Another viewer said that as soon as he sat down to watch A Killer Paradox, he was hooked:

I’ve only been on the show for 6 minutes but I’m already addicted.

Netflix has not yet confirmed a second season of A Killer Paradox.

Korean dramas such as Squid Game, All of Us are Dead, Hellbound and Extraordinary Attorney Woo have attracted a lot of attention on Netflix in recent years.
