Disney Plus’ A Shop for Killers has captivated audiences with its compelling storyline right from the start. The new series revolves around the survival story of a girl who becomes the target of suspicious killers due to the legacy left by her late uncle.
The first episode begins with an intense shooting sequence between Ji An (played by Kim Hye Jun) and Seong Jo (Seo Hyun Woo). The episode then takes viewers back a year earlier, revealing the secrets behind the agricultural supply sales website operated by Ji An’s late uncle, Jin Man (Lee Dong Wook). His farming website turns out to be a dark web shopping mall named “Murder Help” that sells various weapons, bugging devices, and drugs designed for lethal purposes. Furthermore, it was discovered that Ji An has Murder Help’s highest access code called the “Green Code,” which obliges all Murder Help users with Purple, Red, and Yellow codes to protect Jin Man and Ji An.
The second episode delves into the past of Jin Man and Ji An. As Ji An is left alone after losing her family, her uncle becomes the only family member who can look after her.
After the first two episodes, many media outlets shared their impressions of A Shop for Killers. Some notable comments include: “This show kicks off with tension that grabs your attention right away and keeps you on the edge throughout (Maeil Business),” “Clean pacing and stylish editing, a plot that becomes more intriguing as it unfolds (Sports Kyunghyang),” and “The captivating power of an enthralling story (Yonhap News Agency).”
