Oh Sangwoo, a sadish Korean student and a serial killer, kidnaps Yoon Bum, who was watching him obsessively. Despite having a bit of affection for Bum, Sangwoo holds Bum captive and tortures him. This story follows Bum’s attempts to free himself and Sangwoo’s efforts to prevent Bum’s escape.

Yoon Bum, The awkward,  attracted to the most beautiful and most popular man in the school. Oh Sangwoo, the elegant and charming speaker, saved Bum from a group of aggressors when they were in the army together. This act made Bum see Sangwoo as his savior.

Killing Stalking Bum’s mental state

Sadly, Bum’s mental state is uncertain. He ends up pursuing the people he cares about. One day he decides to enter Sangwoo’s home when he’s gone. At the entrance, he discovers that Sangwoo is not just that. Sangwoo is nothing like the person he portrays to the world. It’s probably more unstable than the Yoon Bum mentality.

Oh Sangwoo is the second main character of Killing Stalking – Manhwa/ Anime. He is a classmate of Yoon Bum and enrolled in the same military unit as he. Unlike Bum, Sangwoo is popular, has a great circle of friends and considered very attractive.

However, these features mask many psychotic, sadistic features. The victim of an abusive father and a horrible home environment, Sangwoo murdered both parents while in high school. Sangwoo tends to think that people who tricked by his public face are under him. He uses harsh language with his victims, including profanity and insult.

He seems to favor women victims, but he does not hesitate to show violence against men.

Despite telling Yoon Bum that he has not killed a man since his father’s death in high school.

Yang Seungbae

Yang Seungbae  a former inspector who relegated to a police patrol officer. As noted by his superior,he seems to trust in his intuitions, even when there is no evidence. These traits prove to be harmful as they cost him his position on the investigation team. Three years earlier, he analyzed the killing of Oh Sangwoo’s parents.

Although the case closed, he explored more and became suspicious of the assumption that the culprit was a burglar, finding the evidence of a burglary too convenient.

Min Jieun is a female classmate of Oh Sangwoo and has a passion on him. She wholeheartedly believes in Sangwoo’s public character.

But the illusion broken when Sangwoo takes her captive after having sex with her. She murdered by Yoon Bum when he succumbs to a sudden illusionary episode; it seems that this crime is part of Sangwoo’s plan for Bum.
