    I don't think I have read enough horror to be really experienced on that genre, but for sure I can confirm that Killing Stalking is a really good story.

    It's setting is Seoul in South Korea and Yoonbum, a timid and lonely man, happens to fall in love with Sangwoo, who he knows from college and the military service. He has been stalking people "out of love" before and eventually he breaks into the house of Sangwoo. Sangwoo on the other hand turns out to be the complete opposite of what Yoonbum ima

    It's setting is Seoul in South Korea and Yoonbum, a timid and lonely man, happens to fall in love with Sangwoo, who he knows from college and the military service. He has been stalking people "out of love" before and eventually he breaks into the house of Sangwoo. Sangwoo on the other hand turns out to be the complete opposite of what Yoonbum imagined him to be. It goes as far, as it possible can, with the setting of a sadistic serial killer imprisoning the stalker that is so desperately in love with him...

    The plot is overall just really good. A lot of the time the situation seems predictable, but thinking about it, this is just another argument on how well the plot is thought through. You get the illusion of knowing what will happen next, knowing how the protagonists feel - but the two main characters and the twists and turns of the plot, don't fail to surprise the reader.

    And just as the plot is well planned, so are the two main characters. Even though they seem chlichee at first, or ordinary, they are far from being both of these things. While the story takes place, the two main characters evolve and change. It's so interesting to read.

    What is too worth mentioning is the artwork! I would read any kind of story, if just the artwork is really beautiful. And it is, in Killing Stalking. It's unique, it's how you would expect horror/psychological manhwa to be drawn. The artists really pays attention to the detail. Love me some coloured graphic novels.

    The hype is unreal and even harmful in my opinion. Because there are too many young people having access to this, thinking it is a cute yaoi story just like Yuri!! on Ice.

    Don't read Killing Stalking as a typical yaoi, or even as a yaoi at all, when you start reading it. I think this is where all the hate and of course the hype comes from. It's really important to see that Killing Stalking, just as horror from Stephen King for example, is fiction. It's wrong to compare it to any other yaoi. The name is "Killing Stalking" after all.

    Still, I think that the yaoi in this is an aspect that really adds to the story, making it unique. But just because this is a yaoi story doesn't mean, this is an acceptable relationship, for god's sake.

    *Killing Me Softly With His Song plays in the backround and softly fades out*

    [Edit after reading chapter 13: I might need to add Killing Stalking to my favourites. I'm officially addicted. What the heck.]

    [Edit after chapter 15: The suspense. The anticipation. The pain. Why did I sign up to this again? (Enjoying it though - the plot and the artwork don't lack brilliancy.)]

    [Edit after chapter 19: I KNEW YOONBUM WOULD TURN OUT TO BE 1) EVEN MORE PSYCHO AND 2) EVENTUALLY TURN OUT HOW SANGWOO WANTS HIM TO BE! I am so curious where this change of character will lead the story.]

    Killing Stalking is a dark, psychological horror/ thriller comic, incomplete at that. Still, I read it all in one sitting and I decided to shelve it because of the nature of the comic, and because I also need to throw my two cents in.

    I want potential readers to know the trigger warning associated with this comic: violence, gore, manipulation, blood, knives, torture, death. If you're under the age of 18, do not read this comic. If you have any questions about potential triggers, please send me a

    I want potential readers to know the trigger warning associated with this comic: violence, gore, manipulation, blood, knives, torture, death. If you're under the age of 18, do not read this comic. If you have any questions about potential triggers, please send me a message. This is a strong horror comic, and it shouldn't be confused, nor fetishized as YAOI or an a gay romance.

    Where the comparison to Yuri on Ice comes from is beyond me, as this comic is, again,

    . Killing Stalking made me feel anxious for Bum, both intrigued and scared, and sorry for Bum. Yoonbum has been stalking Sangwoo, in fact you can say he's obsessed, to the point where he breaks into his home. Only to find out that the Sangwoo, charismatic and popular, is not who he thinks he is, and there is more to him than meets the eye. That's when everything changes, and it is

    , and I reiterate, dark as hell. Although Yoonbum has been stalking him you feel conflicted because Sangwoo is a serial killer, one obsessed with blood and torture.

    This comic had me scared for everyone, and although you ask yourself what you're reading just about every page, the story is compelling as it is twisted. In a consensus, this is disturbing, but it's like a horror movie—you can't stop watching, and hoping that the MC will survive. I'm honestly scared for Yoonbum and not only his wellbeing, but his mental state.

    Do not read this comic.

    It's disgusting.

    It's supposed to be psychological horror but it doesn't even come close. The person who wrote this doesn't understand how mental illnesses work and at the same time, it's obvious this was solely written to fetishize relationships between gay men. It's horrible. Sangwoo, one of the main characters, kills women after raping them, breaks someone's legs so they can't leave him, ties that person up, force feeds them and when the guy tries to escape, Sangwoo cuts

    And his victim starts falling in love with him.

    Never have I read something so vile. Do not read this. It's not worth it. You can find much better horror than this. The writer of this book obviously didn't do any research on mental illness and obviously doesn't know how they work.

    Let me start off by saying that it is important to consider the title before reading. I, like many other people I'm sure, was reluctant to start reading this manhwa after the negative attention it had received. However, the hate it receives is completely unfounded. This manhwa features heavy violence, gore, and immensely flawed (but well written) characters. Although the comic has an abusive gay relationship, it is never romanticized or seen as healthy within the perspective of the manga. The go

    Let me start off by saying that it is important to consider the title before reading. I, like many other people I'm sure, was reluctant to start reading this manhwa after the negative attention it had received. However, the hate it receives is completely unfounded. This manhwa features heavy violence, gore, and immensely flawed (but well written) characters. Although the comic has an abusive gay relationship, it is never romanticized or seen as healthy within the perspective of the manga. The goal of the manga is to scare and entertain the reader, the purpose is not to create a healthy couple for readers to ship. Overall, the problem lies within the fanbase that is willing to fetishize any gay relationship, no matter the circumstances.

    Anyway, for a psychological horror, this is one of the best I have seen in a very long time. I rarely, if ever, feel anxious for a character but I feel so much for Yoonbum. I relate to his character a lot and it breaks my heart to see him suffering so badly from everything Sangwoo puts him through. Furthermore, as someone with BPD, I think the way in which Bum is portrayed to have it is accurate as I know some people were complaining about that as well.

    In my opinion, the best thing about Killing Stalking is the suspense. The end of each chapter leaves me SHOOK. The pacing is so good and there aren't any cheap jump scares. I also find the plot in itself to be engaging. There were a few twists I didn't see coming. Another thing that I love is the art style. It really is beautiful and the artists pay so much attention to detail.

    I can understand why some people would have issues with this manhwa and it definitely isn't for everyone, but if you are a fan of horror/psychological thrillers, then I would definitely recommend Killing Stalking.

    I loved the emotions roller coaster, also the art is beyond amazing. I don't read Manga much because I tend to lose focus on the story and care about the art and the little details much, but Mangas on phone is a great way to concentrate on the story instead.

    I was just innocently checking the Manhwa out and suddenly I'm finishing it and waiting for chapter 18, like what happened? I don't know.

    I'm totally ruined, my Yuri On Ice mood is ruined I need to rewatch it to get my innocence back.

    Bum is just L but softer and gayer, Sangwoo is Hisoka Morow but crazier!

    Hope the last chapters come out soon.

    However, it was fucked up and scary, and I think the artist was trying so hard to show that, and that it's not okay to ship an abusive relationship.

    Just finished part 1. I can see that this is definitely going to be dark and not for those who can't handle blood and torture.

    This was a very disturbing read, and I would not recommend it to anyone who is squeamish.

    This online manga follows the main character in a Stockholm Syndrome scenario. It was very disturbing and I can't keep my dinner down anymore... But I honestly couldn't stop reading it. My heart breaks for the main character and what he has to go through. I'm sobbing internally, please who ever is in charge of the universe make it stop.
