Kill Boksoon: Redemption and Sacrifice.

The imagination of South Koreans plays out in various dramatic spaces and the corresponding values that govern them. For instance, a father may hide his profession from his daughter if it is not socially respected. However, Korean creators tend to exaggerate the theme of concealing information from children, often taking it to the extreme, such as a photographer who is actually a professional assassin employed by a company that hires hitmen.

In "Kill Boksoon," a perfect-working mother faces a vital contradiction when she realizes that her relationship with her teenage daughter is strained. This reveals the sharp contrast between being an affectionate mother and a merciless one. Korean dramas, especially on television, frequently explore the idea of life beyond death.

The current Netflix series, "Kill Boksoon," highlights a disturbing concept: the outside world is a jungle of predators and prey, and everyone must confront their animalistic nature before returning home. The movie illustrates in detail how a killer transforms into a compassionate mother who abandons her murderous duties. However, when she decides to leave her profession to focus on motherhood, she finds herself in a life-or-death battle.

Jeon Do-yeon plays the role of Mother Buxon, who was trained by Chan Min-kyu (played by actor Kyung-gu), the manager of the killer company. Buxon strictly adheres to the company's rules, which dictate that a failed mission is considered suicide, resulting in immediate termination. The company renews the employment of loyal hitmen every year.

As the plot unfolds, the viewer witnesses the struggles and dilemmas that Mother Buxon faces as she tries to balance her maternal instincts with her professional obligations. She faces immense pressure from her boss, Chan Min-kyu, who expects her to continue working for the company and fulfill her duties as a hitman.

At the same time, Boksoon's daughter is struggling with her own demons, including feelings of abandonment and a troubled relationship with her mother. These conflicts come to a head as Buxon tries to leave the company and start a new life with her daughter.

Despite the danger and risks that she faces, Buxon is determined to protect her daughter and make amends for the past. She demonstrates her strength and courage as she battles to break free from the grip of the company and start a new life.

The film presents a powerful message about the conflicts that arise when personal and professional lives intersect. It also explores the complex themes of redemption, forgiveness, and sacrifice, highlighting the lengths that a mother will go to protect her child.

The"Kill Boksoon" is a thought-provoking and emotionally charged film that showcases the talent and creativity of Korean filmmakers. It is a must-watch for fans of Korean dramas and action films alike.

Action and Drama Collide: An Analysis of the Film Kill Boksoon.

The success of action scenes is determined by their accuracy and ability to convince viewers that they are real. In addition, the appropriate speed of the battle and a film's balance of action with a sense of irony and comedy are fitting for a world where open murder companies and syndicates of professional killers exist.

In "Kill Boksoon," the action combines Asian martial arts, drawing inspiration from karate, judo, kung fu, and Western martial arts with firearms, featuring fast movements and quick, accurate montage so viewers don't miss a thing.

Action scenes are like expressive dance scenes, but the biggest problem is that they may not have the desired effect due to the great dramatic pressure caused by events related to potential murder or kidnapping of a teenage daughter.

Despite the beauty and consistency of the action in the main scene, where different gangs come together to kill Boxon based on a conspiracy by one of her fellow killers, the amount of tension caused by the daughter's drama and the opposing assassins' potentially life-threatening abilities creates exaggerated anxiety, overshadowing the impact of the fight.

The film's craftsmanship is evident in the portrayal of a mother and her teenage daughter, Cha Min Hyo (played by young actress Isom). Cha Min Hyo carries high fighting abilities and ferocity in her genes, waiting for an opportunity to escape her emotional dryness. Her mother, used to killing rather than hugging, struggles to express her motherhood.

The physical expression of both mother and daughter reflects their lost connection. The effect of disapproving and begging looks extends to a human moment enveloped in the sense of security lacking for the daughter, who hides her sense of deprivation of tenderness with a cover of cruelty towards her mother.

The Dichotomy of Relationships in a Killer's Life:

The relationship between colleagues in the murder industry is complex. Daily conversations may seem friendly, and communication between generations is permanent to inherit the profession. However, the other side of the relationship carries one goal: to get rid of the colleague to take their place in the company or for fear of having their place hijacked. On the contrary, in family life, there is no alternative to the daughter or the mother. The feelings of motherhood triumph, and the inevitable choice is manifested in the salvation of the profession with all its two-way relationships, to devote oneself to a daughter who has no alternative.

Mother Boxon begins her battle against her profession by deciding not to carry out a mission to eliminate an innocent young man. His corrupt political father wanted to get rid of him after his opponents knew that he could enroll him in a study that he was not entitled to enroll. Boxon admits to her failure in the mission, and doubt creeps into the manager, who is sure that it is time to eliminate her despite the fact that she is his beloved student. This starts a fierce battle between two professional killers who do not want to kill each other, but it is the nature of the profession and its obligations that necessitate it.

The film is a cinematic metaphor that portrays life outside the home as a battle of life and death. It considers that the task of a successful father or mother, at least in form, is to kill others. However, this cruelty is incompatible with the task of raising children, where feelings must remain pure in order to communicate with them and raise them well.

The professional killer in the film is a single mother raising a teenage daughter. She had to give up the cruelty and brutality of the outside world to be able to communicate with her daughter. However, the daughter soon begins to practice ferocity after being exposed to a harsh situation outside the house to understand what her mother suffers from the schizophrenia between being a killer outside the house and a person inside it.

The mother defeated the gang and got rid of her profession, but the fate of the daughter, who is preparing to leave the family home and enter the forest of society, is not yet settled.
