그 사람 연설 죽여주더라
His speech was amazing.

And locals like to use expressions like "죽인다" and "죽이네(요)" However, the National Institute of Korean Language does not clearly explain the derivation of the etymology.

날씨 죽이네
The weather is amazing.

갈비탕 맛이 죽이네요
The rib soup(Galbitang) tastes good.

도미회 맛이 죽인다.

봄꽃을 보니 기분이 죽이네요

When Koreans use these expressions, don't misunderstand the meaning of the other person.
