A Shop for Killers: An Action-Packed Emotional Roller Coaster

by Neil Bui

A Shop for Killers just wrapped up on Hulu with the last two episodes (of 8 total). Let me start off by saying that A Shop for Killers was absolutely amazing. The premise of the series and the novel it was based on was enough to hook me – an orphaned girl by the name of Jian, raised by her uncle, must survive trained killers after her life following her uncle’s sudden suicide and while uncovering the secrets of his past.

Each episode and the unique pacing of episodes focused on different flashbacks resulted in an incredible storytelling format that kept me on the edge of my seat wanting more as my questions were answered, even as I was left asking even more questions about mysterious Uncle Jeong Jinman. Although at first it’s not clear if Jian has what it takes to survive and live through the dangers and threats coming to her, it is a heartfelt journey watching grow closer to understanding the person her uncle was.

The final two episodes are packed with so much action on par with the John Wick franchise. Episode 8 ends with a number of loose ends that leaves the door open for a second season, but only time will tell if the story will continue. For now, A Shop for Killers is available to watch on Hulu.

Synopsis: Set in modern-day Korea, A Shop for Killers sees college student Jeong Jian diving for cover in her childhood home after a series of highly skilled assassins get her in their sites. Desperately fighting to survive, Jian will begin to remember invaluable lessons her uncle taught her before his apparent suicide, drawing on them to help her stay alive. Confused and cornered, Jian will have to work fast to uncover her uncle’s hidden past and figure out why so many people are desperate to gain access to the house and the extensive arsenal hidden inside.

Starring Lee Dongwook (Guardian: The Lonely and Great God, Tale of the Nine Tailed) as Jinman, Jian’s mysterious uncle; and Kim Hyejun (Connect, Kingdom) as Jian, a college student on the run from some of the planet’s deadliest assassins, A Shop For Killers is based on the popular original novel by Kang Jiyoung, written by Ji Hojin and Lee Kwon, and directed by Lee Kwon (Door Lock, Save Me 2).
