‘Kill It’ shows Nana’s transformation, chemistry with Jang Ki-yong in new stills

OCN’s upcoming thriller Kill It released new promotional materials showing Nana‘s transformation into a brilliant detective and her chemistry with co-star Jang Ki-yong.

Nana’s character, Detective Do Hyun-jin, is described as emotionally distant on the surface, but someone who feels people’s pain inside. She is famous as a skilled detective, having graduated as top of her class at the police academy. In the stills below, she is seen embodying various facets of her character—from serious and angry to resolute and happy. She is dressed sharply in hues of brown, black and gray.

The other set of stills show Nana and Jang Ki-yong taking a walk together, displaying easy chemistry. Jang Ki-yong plays Kim Soo-hyun, a veterinarian with a sinister past. The stills are intriguing because Kim is expected to be at odds with Detective Do, but the two seem more like friends.

Speaking of the atmosphere on the sets and his chemistry with Nana, Jang Ki-yong said, “We are very comfortable with each other and have grown closer during the shooting. There are a lot of tiring scenes but the energy we have on set helps. We’ll work hard to give you a great show.”

On the experience of working with Jang, Nana says, “Jang Ki-yong is thoughtful and receptive to my opinions. Our chemistry is good on the set, and I hope it can translate well on screen too.”

Kill It is directed by Nam Sung-woo. It will premiere on March 23.

Her favorite dramas tend to be thrillers like Secret Forest and Signal, as well as heartwarming shows like Misaeng. When not in the mood for either of those, you can find her binging on shows about female friendships a la Age of Youth or rom-coms that come with sprinklings of feminism, like Because This Life Is My First. She lives in India, spends all her free time reading books, and would love nothing more than to meet Gong Hyo-jin and sign away her life's earnings to the actress.
