People that Boksoon works with are Chairman Cha Min-kyu (portrayed by Sul Kyung-gu), who recruited Boksoon for her talents, and Director Cha Min-hee (portrayed by Esom), both of whom who are completely different from the people Boksoon meets as a mother. Han Hee-sung (portrayed by Koo Kyo-hwan), who is unparalleled in skill but is taken for granted at the agency, also adds to the intrigue.

His past work includes The Merciless (2017), which was invited to the 70th Cannes Film Festival, and Kingmaker (2022).

How Gil Boksoon manages the fine line between her identity as a killer and a single mother and the synergy of actors whose characters are entangled in dangerous yet intriguing relationships will unfold in Kill Boksoon, premiering 31 March only on Netflix.
