Director Lee Chang Hee of the Netflix series A Killer Paradox unveiled the innovative approach behind the series during an eye-opening interview.

A Killer Paradox tells the gripping tale of an ordinary man, Lee Tang (Choi Woo Shik), who accidentally embarks on a journey of murder, and Detective Jang Nangam (Son Suk Ku), who relentlessly pursues him. The series, based on a webtoon from 2010 to 2011, shifts from its original teen rating to a mature audience, promising a deeper dive into its thrilling narrative. With a cast led by Choi Woo Shik, Son Suk Ku, and Lee Hee Joon, and directed by Lee Chang Hee, known for OCN’s Hell Is Other People, A Killer Paradox has captivated audiences worldwide.

The show’s global appeal is undeniable, swiftly climbing Netflix’s charts to secure the 2nd spot in the Global TOP 10 TV non-English category and reigning supreme as number one in Korea.

Lee’s revelation about the use of CGI to recreate Son Sukku’s younger self has stirred considerable interest. “This might sound like I’m undermining other works, but Son Suk Ku’s younger self isn’t played by an actor but created through CGI,” he shared. “We collected data on Son Suk Ku’s past images and applied it to create the character. Usually, movies allow different actors to play the same character at different ages, but we decided to use CG for all past sequences because we didn’t like such artistic license.”

The digital treatment wasn’t limited to Son Suk Ku’s character. “Not just Son Suk Ku’s younger self, but all younger versions of the characters are rendered in CGI. This means that in flashback scenes, these young characters do not have dialogue,” he added, emphasizing the unprecedented nature of this technique in Korean productions. “These faces don’t exist in reality. We invested heavily in this work to enhance the series’ realism.”
