There are many films that have done well in the action genre and Kill Boksoon is one of them. The Netflix movie 'Kill Boksoon' is an action movie that depicts the story of 'Gil Boksoon’ (Jeon Do Yeon), a legendary killer in the hitman industry, getting caught up in an unavoidable confrontation just before renewing her contract with the company.

In addition, Sol Kyung Gu, Kim Sia, Esom, Koo Kyo Hwan and Lee Yeon appeared.
