Director Byun Sung-hyun’s thriller starts streaming at the end of March.
Retiring as an assassin is never easy, and that’s definitely the case in the upcoming Netflix film Kill Boksoon. The movie follows Gil Boksoon (Jeon Do-yeon) as a killer with a perfect success rate but a rough relationship with her teenage daughter (Kim Si-a). She decides to retire to spend more time with her kid, but — of course — on her last mission, she discovers a secret that puts her up against the entire hitman industry, John Wick-style.
The latest trailer for the film shows off some slick and bloody action, a very stylish criminal underworld, and a few awkward moments that come from balancing parenthood with, you know, murdering for a living. Writer and director Byun Sung-hyun’s previous work includes the political drama Kingmaker and the action / crime thriller The Merciless, and Kill Boksoon also stars Sol Kyung-gu, Koo Kyo-hwan, and Esom.
It starts streaming very soon, hitting Netflix on March 31st. In the meantime, check out this excellent new poster:
