Here comes another suspense action with romance Korean tv series that will surely capture every Filipinos attention. It stars one of the most favorite South Korean actor in the world of K-drama! Good news for Lee Min Ho fans out there! LOL!
City Hunter is a drama based on Tsukasa Hojo’s Japanese manga series/comic with the same title. In South Korea, it was broadcasted by SBS (Seoul Broadcasting System), the TV network which aired dramas like Piano, Green Rose, Single Again, Painter of the Wind and Sandglass.

According to http://wiki.d-addicts.com, “The story takes place in Seoul, 2011. Lee Yoon Sung is a talented MIT-graduate who works on the international communications team in the Blue House. He plans revenge on five politicians who caused his father’s death with his surrogate father Lee Jin Pyo and eventually becomes a ‘City Hunter.’” Another thing is that this Korean drama series have also reached a good ratings in popularity not just in South Korea but throughout Asia!
The reason for its popularity was its ensemble cast, I think. Here are some of them:
1. Lee Min Ho (Boys Over Flowers, Personal Preference, Secret Campus) as Lee Yoon Sung – the “City Hunter” who wants to avenge his father’s killers.
2. Park Min Young (High Kick!, I Am Sam, Sungkyunkwan Scandal) as Kim Na Na – she’s a judo master as well as one of the President’s guard.
3. Lee Joon Hyuk (Secret Garden, I Am Legend,) as Kim Young Joo – a lawful and intelligent prosecutor who loves justice.
Here in the Philippines, ABS-CBN holds the rights to broadcast City Hunter on TV. It was scheduled to premier on Monday, January 16, 2012 and it seems that everybody is waiting for Lee Min Ho’s comeback! Yey!
