A Killer Paradox (2024) – Netflix Series: A Good Thriller with an Eccentric Touch

A Killer Paradox is a new South Korean series created by Lee Chang-hee and Kim Da-min. It stars Choi Woo-shik and Son Suk-ku. It is based on the comic by Ggomabi.

“A Killer Paradox” is an intriguing series with touches of comedy that has a unique construction, especially in terms of editing, successfully confusing the viewer with flashbacks and fragments that are skillfully combined to create a series with a special and original touch.

Not quite a thriller, comedy, tragedy, or drama, it’s a game of cat and mouse that transforms into a complex and enticing intrigue.

If you’re looking for something different from the traditional thriller, “A Killer Paradox” is a great choice for this Friday night. Not to mention, it has two fantastic and eccentric protagonists, full of quirks, who are well-developed in a well-crafted, fun, and highly entertaining story.

Plot

A young man dreams of going to Canada and works in a grocery store. One night, he responds to an attack and kills a man.

The next day, the police investigate the murder and question the young man, who suffers from strange hallucinations.

It’s only the beginning of this story of twists, suspense, and plenty of confusion.

About the Series

Funny, different, and highly entertaining, “A Killer Paradox” knows how to stand out from a classic thriller and creates a series with an eccentric and ambiguous touch that is quite interesting. It may not be the series of your life or visually stunning, but the way it’s told and the anarchic nature of its two protagonists make it a tasty dish for this weekend.

“A Killer Paradox” is a series that knows how to mix genres, a bit like Twin Peaks, but less macabre and more realistic, yet still capturing the same eccentric spirit that may cause strangeness and, if not fascination and magic, at least it manages to be attractive, different, and highly entertaining.

A series that knows how to progress and gradually introduce us into a plot of corruption and twists that become more serious as the 8 episodes unfold. It loses its comedy touch to focus on its thriller spirit, and it gradually loses its eccentricity while gaining depth.

“A Killer Paradox” has great characters, especially those that attract and develop as the plot evolves.

Technically, it’s a decent production, but not spectacular. It won’t be a series that changes the history of television with its aesthetics or pacing. It wants to do things right, and it does, leaving a good taste in your mouth, but without being overly enthusiastic.

Our Opinion

Another good Korean series that remains just that, a good series and nothing more. Without making a big impact, it manages to leave a good first impression, but then becomes a more classic thriller as it progresses.

In any case, another good option for this Friday night.
