“The Killer’s Shopping List”: Characters relationship chart revealed

South Korean broadcasting network, tvN is known for its novel and quirky dramas. From blockbuster crime drama Vincenzo to the latest heartfelt release, Twenty Five Twenty One, the channel just keeps outshining itself. The Killer’s Shopping List is the latest edition to the pack. Netizens are eagerly waiting for the drama which is based on a novel of the same name. The drama revolves around a neighborhood and a supermarket named MS Mart. It also involves the quiet lives of the employees and people associated with it. One day a murder takes place near an apartment close to MS Mart. The only lead the police has is a receipt from the mart. The show will follow the lives of all these characters as they get entangled with this mystery.

As the countdown to the new Comedy-mystery drama, The Killer’s shopping closes, its broadcasting channel tvN has shared a detailed relationship chart among the characters. This is a mystery for the viewers if the relationship chart is a clue for us to find the murderer.  Or maybe my K-Drama-obsessed self might be overanalyzing here. Anyways, let’s have an introduction to the main and supporting characters. Let’s also look at the chart that tvN has provided us with.

The Characters of The Killer’s Shopping List

Our main male lead, Ahn Dae Sung (played by former Running Man cast Lee Kwang Soo) is an individual with a great memory. But he has always been unable to clear his examinations. Hence, he works at the MS Mart. His mother Han Myung Sook (played by Jin Hee Kyung), who is also the owner of the mart. He has a girlfriend, Do A Hee (played by popular idol Seolhyun) is a police officer, who is assigned to investigate the murder. His father, Ahn Young Choon (played by Shin Sung Woo) is a vegetable vendor. Along with them is a stellar supporting but essential cast. It is already promising to be an interesting and fun watch.
