Teaser and posters for A Killer Paradox

On January 11, Netflix released the initial teaser for A Killer Paradox. The gripping clip unfolds with Lee Tang (Choi Woo Sik) navigating his routine life, attending university classes, and working at a convenience store. However, the mundane life takes a sinister turn when returning from his part-time job, Lee Tang is brutally attacked by an unidentified assailant.


In a surprising twist, Lee Tang, who would typically shy away from confrontation, retrieves a hammer and strikes back with force. The on-screen text, "A person was killed, I killed a person," hints at an irreversible transformation in Lee Tang’s life.

Detective Jang Nan Gam (Son Suk Ku) is swiftly assigned to the homicide case, initiating a dangerous cat-and-mouse game between the police officer and the once-ordinary university student. The trailer concludes with Lee Tang posing a thought-provoking question, "Do you think regular chewing gum and bubblegum are different?" Concurrently, we witness Jang Nam Gam chewing and blowing bubblegum, hinting at the similarities in human nature and potentially suggesting a connection between him and the killer, sharing similar instincts.
