Because I love Killing Stalking, it’s complex, intriguing, well written, beyond the usual confines of its genre and it deserves to have some serious meta written about it.
Two things to keep in mind before reading:
1) I’m only focusing on Sangwoo, depending on how this post is received I may do a follow up on Yoonbum.
2) I will be talking from the point of view that Killing Stalking is a bl and therefore Sangwoo and Bum will become a canon ship irrelevant of its level of healthiness. This in no way to be viewed as the start of a shipping debate.
Tw: discussions of rape/sexual abuse from Bum’s uncle as well as domestic violence regarding Sangwoo’s father.
Yuri, one of the school’s most handsome guys, and Jaerim, one of the school’s ugliest, collide!…or don’t they…Can’t understand what’s going on between these two! It’s Out of Control!!
I’m posting about this because recently I have seen the manhwa Killing and Stalking pop up and it has a very interesting plot and in depth character development, but the fan base for it has gone to a point of romanticizing the very destructive and unhealthy relationship portrayed in the story. personally I have no problem with shipping the characters but fetishizing and romanticizing the actions isn’t right. If people really want a boys love based story, read Never Understand! It has whole hearted vibes and a very good art style and story! I really recommend it!
If there is one manhwa that can play with your mental faculties, it would be the @towerofgod. TOG is simply outstanding, when it comes to story line, narration, and character development. The plot twists are off the charts, too!
Shout out to my favorite characters, Baam, Khun, and Androssi! This fanart is for you! Thank you to SIU, too! :)
