Review: Kill It

Kill It is a twelve episode action-mystery drama that feels like it started out as a six episode drama that was handed over to an intern in editing who then chopped it up into a billion unnecessary flashbacks (flashbacks to what happened, literally, ten minutes before in the same episode) and excruciatingly long staring scenes where no one moves (did time stop? are there photographers on set? why do they keep doing this in dramas?).

It stars the handsome, tall Chang Ki-Yong as a brooding, introverted assassin… who is also a veterinarian. There are two ways to make scary men lovable, and that is to surround them with cute small children or cute fluffy creatures.

One of most feel-good of feel-good dramas out there.  I’d like to give a standing ovation to this show for presenting one of the healthiest relationships I have ever seen in a K-Drama.  Could there be two more likable leads?  I’m struggling to think of anyone I’ve liked together more than this adorable pair.  Watching them together was magical.  It was such a fun, feisty, genuine romance.  It was like eating sunshine.

Plot, Short Version:  While two college athletes slowly fall in love, this show will wrap you up like a warm blanket and snuggle you.

Overall Rating – 10/10.  This Drama Takes Home All The Gold Medals.

Spoilers follow!
