An absolute thriller

I am astounded at comments mentioning a lack of depth in the characters or a lull in the pacing. To each his own, I suppose, but I must say that this series had me at the edge of my seat at every chapter. I think it's misleading to categorize this manhwa as romance because this is a work of art that really delves into the dynamics of an abusive relationship; Sangwoo is a psychopath who continues to manipulate Bum throughout the series. Both characters are wonderfully fleshed out, as the author takes the time to show their ticks and what created them. Do not go into this expecting a romance, and do not attempt to romanticize the horrors that happen.

Somewhat disappointing

There was a good amount of hype around it but I really didn’t find that much depth, although Sangwoo’s character had a bit of promise. Nonetheless the story-telling, art, pacing etc. was still well done but I didn’t come out of it feeling anything really. They both just seemed really messed up just for the sake of being messed up. Nothing special. Would recommend reading Bastard instead for some serial killer psychological thriller.

Didn't meet expectations

I've seen this manhwa's ss images before (as it was very popular) but decided not to read it until it's completed. Because it's popular, I've unconsciously set some expectations and sadly, they weren't met. Must be because way back I've read something similar with the 'psycho' theme and had some comparisons.

The title, Killing Stalking, only happened for a short time. I admit the story gave me the shivers but it was only at the beginning. At the later half of the series, it became like a slice of life and it was evident that the plot's going nowhere but the last few chapters were in good pacing which is somehow good. The genre 'Drama' didn't really got me.. there's something lacking. Only if the author expressed the romance more meaningful and deep but I guess she did that on purpose because of the Mature genre? Anyway it's still a nice read so give it a try.

This manga really got me. It's triggering and sick. But I really liked it, this may be due to my interest in psychology and mental illness. Here we go:

So you see Sangwoo a psychopath created from his childhood trauma and Bum a prisoner of his obsessive disorder, brought on by again, childhood trauma. Seeing there will be a combination of these two mentally Ill figures, I took a breath and was ready for a shitstorm.

The chaos was real on Sangwoo's part, stating that he doesn't plan, he just goes with a flow. It kept me glued. Bum made my chest ache when he complied with Sangwoo's sick games. It was actually upsetting, his struggle between fear and desire.. Ending with desire being the winner about each time, Bum staying with him as a result.

This is a psychological thriller for a reason, it explained why the characters developed into this behavior, this story doing that helps to understand these characters and why they spiraled into manic behaviors.
This is not a story for the faint of heart, the sexual assault in this is a lot, but was Bum willing?
Being the definition for sexual assult is "an act in which a person intentionally sexually touches another person without that person's consent." This area is a heavy, controversial topic. But seeing Bums behavior as well as Sangwoo's, the sexual interaction were rough but Bum was infatuated in these interactions and was both insisting and resistant on it continuing. I don't deny the abusive content but Bum's infatuation gave a sense he was willing. But Bum seemed unwilling through the pain and injuries he went through during their sexual encounters. I call it that 'cause I'm not quiet comfortable calling it sex. See the controversy?

In my opinion, if you see this in any way romantic, it's not. There is no romance, just abuse. To me this was not a love story. This is a toxic stew of trauma, abuse sewn together by two mentally ill people.

So if you enjoy psychological thrillers with triggering content, this is for you.

What depth??

I feel like I'm reading a different manhwa than everyone because this has the depth of a kiddy pool. It's like an episode of NCIS that's being dragged out for hours with a pointless sex scene every two minutes.
This is legit nothing more than torture porn.

A story about psychological trauma festering.

The story is about two guys who were both emotionally scarred, physically abused, & sexually assaulted by blood relatives in their youth who end up together under one roof & try to form a shaky relationship while coming to terms with their own madness. To a lesser degree, it's also about the downward spiral of a rogue officer who starts off with pure intentions that corrupt.

The first half of the story focuses on the uke; Yun Bum, a guy who grew up with his abusive uncle after being orphaned, & who has a crush on a guy who saved him from being sexually assaulted in the army. Too bad that guy was a serial killer who's mom he happened to look like. It also focuses on detective Seungbae's determination to catch a serial killer by any means.

The second half focuses on Sang-Wu, who grew up with parents that became increasingly hostile towards eachother & then dragging him down with them. He tries to have a happy normal relationship with his new clingy boyfriend despite not being gay, but can't get over how Bum resembles his mothet & all the horrible things she did to him, giving him intense trust issues. It also focuses on Seungbae's downward spiral into madness.

The bodies of our boys are rather repulsive to look at, making the yaoi scenes uncomfortable to look at, I believe this was 100% intentional.

All 3 protagonists are victims, they all kill & they all stalk, & they will all likely end up in jail or dead by the end of the series.

Since this is a full-color series with a weekly deadline & surprisingly large page count per chapter with a thrilling horror story & character development, I'm willing to overlook the fact that the art is 95% traced-over photographs.

This is one of the best dark manhwa/mangas i have read in a long time. and it never once had to resort to pure violence or gore to keep up its dark side, it is doing an AMAZING job at showing just how powerful phycological torment can be. its written so well that i genuinly have no idea what sungwoo is going to do next

AAAAAAAH!!! WHAT A TRAGEDY!!! THOSE KIDS NEED SOME LOVE!!!
At first I read it without feeling bad for the characters, but that was since I was prepared for it to be fucked up...
But just like what happened to me when reading Yatamomo, I started feeling more for the character, and had such a strong heartache....
This is so terrible....they all need help...aaaaaAAAAH
