[Drama 2019] Kill It, 킬잇

Recommended Posts

Just finished d raw of Ep 2 . I'm totally waned down from excitement of Ep1. I got bored. Too many annoying flashbacks during second half. It's not even the kind of flashback that I like in drama (ie : MBB awesome flashback, dream in a dream type).So I'm not sure what's going on. Who's who? what's what?  It's only 2nd episode. I'll wait for the  ep 2 sub. I haven't even watch Ep 1 w/ sub.

Acting wise  - so so ( to be fair, I've only seen one drama of JKY and that's My Mister, I like Yang Se Jong more)

Action wise - I like it.

Editing -chop at times esp flashback

 

I need to tone down my expectations  I'll give a go for 2 more episodes. Hope it revives the exctiment of ep 1

I agree with you @jongski I liked the first episode but this second episode lacked action and thrill/scares. The mood thus far isn't as dark as what I expected from a drama series titled "Kill It" with a lead that kills. I think those who are waiting to judge for second episode might not like this episode either as it's not what you may call it as "flashy" as the first episode and if the first episode didn't catch your interest, then I don't know how episode two will differ. On another note,

Spoiler

I think Hyunjin could've dodged the bullet towards the end without needing to be saved by Soohyun but I'm not complaining :lol:

So I just finished episode 2 and obvioulsy I get way more things in english (DHJ family, Seulgi's situation...).  It seems like DHJ adoptive father is the villain of this show, idk. I enjoyed it more than the first episode (probably because I understand more things now) . 

 

It's kind of weird that there is ABSOLUTELY NO love ambiguity between the leads so far, maybe they are really siblings.. Wouldn't care tho, they're still cute (particulary that snow walking scene with background music lol). 

 

Can't wait for episode 3, hope they will finally "fight" or at least a tension face to face.

The first two episodes were just okay - not as dark as I was hoping and I'm not a fan of the romantic overtures already so blatantly present

 

I said before the show started that this being on OCN was perfect as they don't overdo romance to pander to audiences but after those first two episodes I feel like they could finally let me down in that regard. Would prefer if it was more Leon like and the relationship between him and the little girl he's protecting being the most important/developed but based on those first two eps that seems unlikely. Romance really doesn't seem necessary for the plot we're getting but a sibling/daughter kind relationship between the main guy and the kid would be more effective to try and humanise an assassin (similar to films like The Man from Nowhere) 

 

Bit OT but never seen the lead actress before but she's damn beautiful.

Finally watched both episodes and I think the words “serial killer” is not really the best way to describe Kim Soo Hyun’s character. I feel like he’s more of an assassin than a serial killer. The word serial killer is a bit misleading to his character but that’s just my opinion.

 

Watching the first episode,  I’m really impressed at JKY’s English lines. His pronunciation was really good and I can understand him very clearly. Whenever I watch a kdrama and the actors/actresses attempt to speak English, I couldn’t hardly understand at what they were saying (nothing wrong with that. I know English is hard) but when I heard him speaking English, I was really surprised. But anyways, I was a bit disappointed that David McInnis’ character died so fast. I was really hoping that he’ll stay a bit longer. I loved him in DOTS so I was really hoping that he’ll play a bigger role guiding Kim Soo Hyun through his assassination. Everything is moving very quickly, I mean his next target is already Do Hyun Jin. I have a feeling their past may connect to each other.

 

Episode 2 was a more slower paste with all the flashback scenes but I really enjoyed it because it’s also starting to show more of DHJ’s past as well and how Seul Gi is the key to her past. It’ll be very interesting to watch. Though it was less action in ep. 2,  I was also enjoying KSH and DHJ’s relationship development. They are starting to get along and getting to know each other better. I think which is why KSH is hesitant about killing her because when he was on the phone with Phillip, he asked him, “Can you fight for someone you don’t know?” and “Why do people fight for people they don’t know?” I feel like those sentences was him referring to DHJ because at the end of ep. 2 he saved her even though he knew that she was his next target.

So after watching the first two episodes I feel like I kind of understand what the drama is trying to make us feel but I don’t think its been executed the right way. It’s a bit messy too. Like right now I don’t mind the drama, its not bad. But I don’t feel super connected to the characters. I think there wasn’t enough build up between the current/past relationships. 

 

I’m a fan of OCN dramas and JKY. From having watched other OCN dramas, it isn’t dark/grungy as I thought it would be too. 

 

It’s only 12 episodes so I’m wondering how it will go. I’m a bit disappointed but I’ll keep watching until I can’t haha.

Yeah. It's exactly what I was thinking.. I thought it would be more gritty but I think it's more dramatic in terms crime genre.  I like JKY acting better in My Mister. I've only seen 2 episode I'll wait for next week's episode.

Just finished ep 2. The dialogue here fairs much better, although majority of the things happening feels like heavy exposition. Not much action/movement sequence happening with the characters. The physical fight sequence is decent but with really odd camera angles/editing. Falls short on impact.

 

The episode here did a better job fleshing out Hyun Jin. I was worried there wasn't going to be any prominent female character interaction so it's nice to see

scenes between Seul Gi and Hyun Jin talking/bantering especially since Hyun Jin can relate to Seul Ki on a personal level. From what I can conclude, Hyun Jin was an orphan adopted by her current parents to live a false life? She's loosely tied to Soohyun somehow as a child before. The unknown client lady is her father's assistance. Is it weird that Hyun Jin hasnt realized that Seul Gi is the little girl connected to Hyuk's death, unless her name was changed/adopted by the deceased grandpa after that incident?  HJ did a background check and nothing about that came up. 

 

SH/HJ's quiet interactions/small talks is nice. I dont think they properly introduced themselves to eachother? Nana and KY are doing a fair job.

The chemistry is there but the writing just needs a bit of spark/depth in characterization/interaction.

The odd cuts for this episode really stunts the flow along with pacing issues. The detective/procedural aspect of the drama is not engaging as other OCN's shows. Its probably the drier/weaker part of the show. The villian/Kamirov is really uninteresting

/bland. With two episode so far, the show still lacks tension/energy. The atmosphere/tone isnt quite there for a drama that position itself as a action/thriller.

I dont think there will be any romance. More like a close platonic relationship that's built on trust/friendship/angst? Although I could be wrong. Most OCN dramas with this genre usually never allude to any romance between leads. 

 

By the way, the actress is Nana. She's from an idol group Afterschool who venture into acting a few years ago. Yes, she's indeed really beautiful.

Just finished watching both episodes. I'm liking a lot but I have so many questions.

 

I don't think they're siblings because in the preview of the next episode Hyun Jin says "It rained on the last day I saw that friend too". Than Seul Gi asks: "Soo Hyun, don't you have any friends you remember?" than he said "I don't remember any". I think that if they were really siblings they'd be talking about siblings, not friends. Also the lyrics of the first OST "Forever Love" are pretty romantic in my opinion. Next week we'll have more answers about their past, let's see.

I am secretly hoping for a romance between the two leads, but since this is on OCN, their romance might just be along the lines of flirting with one another and that's it. 

It's like the drama "Mad Dog" where two main characters seemed like they were getting together, but at the same time, they weren't really.

I just hope this story stays on track and doesn't start spanning random stories throughout the show.

Finished ep2

 

  • I honestly don't know yet where the drama is heading to, everything still is kinda confusing, I mean we slowly get introduced into everyones background and trouble they have to deal with.
  • Nana somehow fails at being the "excellent" detective she was introduced or described as mutliple times, she already got saved twice by SH, other than her dart moments, it doesn't feel like she is that outstanding cop. It almost feels like she always needs protection and that saddens me, because I really want her to be that cop.
    But so far she somehow doesn't feel like one.
  • Seul Gi is probably the character I'm currently most interested at, since she seems like a very, very nice person who sympathizes a lot with people, but has to mime this cold, rude, almost snobby rich kid. The moment where she changed the elevator, got rid of the boxes and waited for HJ arrival were cute.
  • It almost feels like they want to create a romantic story around SH and HJ. The frequency of scenes they had together and almost "dates" they went to, it definitely looks like HJ will have a crush on him. A loveline between the main-leads would be something new to OCN.
    But I don't think it will happen, because after all. SH is a killer and I don't think HJ would date him the moment she realizes. I also feel like JH plays a major part of HJ dead boyfriend. 
  • I don't know if I'm hooked or not, because I don't feel like the drama knows where it wants to be, the ending scene almost reminded me of "Healer". 
  • @jesstrisThe two main character of Mad Dog were a couple at the end. :D

Is it 16-episode or 12-episode? I've seen some post, that said it'll be 12..

 

MyDramaList says 12.  

March 23 - April 28.

 

....I'm just lurking through and trying to ignore all the negative comments I've seen so far.  Really puts me off, and I just want to enjoy watching JKY being amazing.

Some people are saying that OCN doesn't develop romance in their dramas, I watched OCN's Black and there was romance between the main pair with two little kisses as far as I remember. Obviously it wasn't the main point of the drama but the romance development was cleary there.

There's definitely romance here and there in some OCN dramas. The thing is Soohyun is a assassin/killer. I prefer Soohyun and Hyun Jin as platonic pair who confides in/help one another.

Is Viki subbing this drama?

 

No. :tears:  But the drama is being subbed by VIU, so there will be subs available.

There was also romance in OCN drama My Beautiful Bride.

 

Hi Everyone-

I'm looking forward to checking this drama out-it sounds cool! Not going to lie, I am really hoping that there is a romance between the 2 leads here. Romantic suspense/mystery is my drama catnip, and I think OCN has the potential to combine mystery/action/thriller/romance genres well.  I've seen several OCN shows that contain hints of romance, like Squad 38, so if they could just up the romance factor a little bit more, I'll be in heaven. I thought  OCN My Beautiful Bride did a pretty good job balancing the love story with the action and mystery elements, so I'm hoping for something similar here. 

The premise of cop vs. criminal, cat and mouse game reminds me of the film "Out of Sight" starring George Clooney & Jennifer Lopez. Of course the tone of that film is much lighter and more comedic.  Looking forward to everyone's thoughts and analysis on this drama.

I think they were friends too and Hyunjin is a replacement of Soohyun's might-or-surely-be-sister.

Edit: I'm breathing more easily now because of this lol.

This scene is so heart fluttering omg (the bg music, the snow, the visuals). :flushed: I really don't know what to think about them tbh, is it love / flirt or more like brother-sister relationship..?? I can't wait to know.
