Choi Woo Shik recently shared his candid thoughts on his participation in Netflix’s original series A Killer Paradox, revealing an interesting detail about his character’s appearance that was actually his own idea. “I heard somewhere that eyebrows and nose are crucial for recognizing someone,” Choi explained. “I thought having no eyebrows would make one look vague.”

This physical transformation was more than just a costume choice; it was a strategic move for his character, Lee Tang. “After committing such an act, appearing indistinct seemed beneficial to avoid recognition,” he elaborated.

The actor also dabbed on Lee Tang’s screen time that diminished after Song Chun’s appearance in the latter half of the story. “To some, it might be important who the main character is, but I consider myself a storyteller, not a lead role,” he said. “Even minor roles have their place and importance. If I were concerned about screen time, I would have chosen a solo project.”

Choi continued, “A truly good work emerges when everyone enters the world over Lee Tang’s shoulders, sees through Nan Gam’s eyes, and feels the questions posed by Song Chun together. If one person did everything, it would be a different story. I’m satisfied with how things are.”

Addressing the director Lee Chang-hee’s statement that Choi Woo-shik’s Lee Tang is the protagonist, Choi humbly suggested, “That was said to make me feel good.” He went on, “If the work leaves a memorable impression and the perspective makes sense to the viewer, then it’s up to the individual’s taste to decide who the main character is.”

Addressing concerns that the series might glorify murder, Choi clarified, “If we were glorifying it, the acting and direction would have been different. The character sees the victim out of guilt and undergoes various trials and tribulations. We show how they’ve changed through montages, and I imagine they’re suffering just the same.”
