An exciting new thriller from South Korea is on the way to Netflix in the near future, Kill Bok Soon! The thriller stars The Good Wife actress Jeon Do Yeon, who will be making her Netflix debut. Filming has just begun, so we aren’t expecting to see the thriller on Netflix until 2023. Here’s everything we know so far about Kill Bok Soon on Netflix.

Kill Bok Soon is an upcoming South Korean Netflix Original action-thriller directed by Byun Sung Hyun.

Netflix has a lot of TV shows in the library, and that list continues to grow every month. However, the number of original films from South Korea has been significantly slower, so Kill Bok Soon is a more than welcome future addition to the Netflix library.

What is the plot of Kill Bok Soon?

Single mother Kill Bok Soon is one of the world’s deadliest assassins thanks to her 100% success rate on contract killings. Bok Soon works for M.K Ent, which is run by the man that taught her, Cha Min Kyo. The pair hold mutual respect for each other, but Kill Bok Soon understands that at a moment’s notice could take everything away from her. Just before Kill Bok Soon was due to renew her contract, loyalties are put to the test when Bok Soon is involved in a kill or be killed incident.

Who are the cast members of Kill Bok Soon?

The cast of Kill Bok Soon is taking shape, and k-drama fans should be super excited.

Taking on the lead role of Kill Bok Soon is The Good Wife actress Jeon Do Yeon, who will also be making her Netflix debut in the movie.
