Cast & Credits
--All the characters are likeable:
I always have a problem with the lead female character of any kdrama. I find them very annoying or clumsy or
childish -That's why I stopped watching "The Healer". Here, the female is perfect. On the other hand, I've always loved the cliche personality of the the lead male character - very cold and unsmiling. In "kill it", the protagonist plays this role on another level.
Note: You can definitely feel the chemistry between characters. That's better that kissing and hugging scenes.
The other characters are sweet and funny, but they don't lose the drama's tone.
--Fast development of the story: Unlike other people, I found the story very fluent. Everthing was revealed at the right point of the story, and the fact it was only 12 episodes long makes it easy to watch.
The OST: I haven't listened to a good OST since "The K2". It's excellent. It's the first time I like all the songs. Even though my native language is Spanish, I am trying to learn the lyrics. Then, if you don't want to watch "Kill it" because you have read negative reviews about it, at least listen to the OST. You won't regret it.
--Right ending: The ending suits the story. Even though, it is not what we hope, it is what we expect.
Note: For our hopes, there is an extra scene that makes us feel satisfied and to some extend pleased with the drama.
My wish: I would love to watch another season even though I know it will be irrational to fix the ending. However, I won't be mad if they do it.
If you are so used to romantic comedy. Then, I would recommend not to watch it, but please listen to the OST.
Now getting to the negative side of this mess. The story was amazing and gripping until around episode 6. I don't know what happened after that, but it got so boring that I found myself looking at my phone screen more than the TV. It felt as if the writers had no idea where to take this drama and they just threw scenarios together hoping it would make sense. Unfortunately the whole show was filled with plot holes and even after the end I have some unanswered questions. The whole thing was also very confusing at times.
Surprisingly the ending made me feel empty inside, which is a feeling I usually experience after finishing a drama I really enjoyed, but this might just be due to the way it ended.
Overall I really do not suggest this drama to anyone. Go watch Healer or any other thriller/action drama instead.
