The Killing Vote is an upcoming SBS drama based on a popular webtoon. The drama will premiere at 9pm KST on Aug 10, 2023, and Amazon Prime Video will air it internationally in selected regions.
According to a summary of the plot … The Killing Vote is about a masked vigilante known as Dog Mask. He kidnaps criminals and broadcasts a poll asking ordinary citizens to vote on whether they should be executed. If more than 50% of people vote ‘yes’, he then carries out the killing.
The dark, intense drama makes viewers question their idea of justice … As well as how to deal with those who appear to operate outside of the law.
