About

Killing Stalking is a Korean manhwa series, first written by artist Koogi and published online by Lezhin Comics in 2016. Due to the series' yaoi content, the series grew in popularity among fujoshis, but also garnered controversy for its dark themes.

Premise

Killing Stalking follows Yoon Bum, a young man who begins to stalk an attractive man from his college named Oh Sangwoo. After breaking into Sangwoo's house, Bum discovers that he is actually a serial killer, and is quickly kidnapped by Sangwoo in retaliation. The series follows the two as they learn more about each other following the capture.

History

The series also won the grand prize in Lezhin's own second World Comics Contest.
