We’re still a few months away from the highly-anticipated new John Wick movies, but Netflix’s intense dark Korean action film Kill Boksoon might just be the perfect thing to tide John Wick fans over until then.

Starring Crash Course in Romance‘s Jeon Do-Yeon, Kill Boksoon follows a trained assassin ready to retire so she can spend more time with her daughter. She might have killing down pat, but it’s parenting that’s proven to be the real challenge.

Unfortunately, when Boksoon embarks on her so-called “last” mission, she breaks a few rules regarding killing everyone she’s assigned to, no matter the circumstances, making her enemy no. 1 by every other hitman at her agency. Can she survive as a horde of trained murderers tries to take her out?

This R-rated action film comes from Byun Sung-Hyun, the director of movies like Kingmaker and The Merciless. Kill Boksoon looks like it’s going to be a sleek, stylish thrill ride with plenty of jaw-dropping fighting sequences. You won’t want to miss it, so keep reading to get all the details.
