City Hunter Review

Title: City Hunter
Genre: Action, suspense, romance
Episodes: 20
Broadcast period: 2011-May to 2011-Jul
Cast: Lee Min Ho, Park Min Young anad Lee Joon Hyuk.

After the political murder of his fellow comrades, Lee Jin Pyo (Kim Sang Joong) kidnaps the child of the comrade that saved his life, to train him to execute his revenge against the politicians who ordered the murder.
20 year old Poo Chai (Lee Min Ho) finds out about this when he one day almost dies from a mine, but is saved by his foster father, Jin Pyo. He decides to follow his father’s revenge plan, to put down the 5 men responsible for the murder of his biological father.
When he returns as Lee Yoon Sung to Korea, after 7 years in America, he is asked for help by Bae Man Deok (Kim Sang Ho) his friend, who asks him to look after Kim Na Na (Park Min Young), for unknown reasons. Na Na happens to work as a security guard at the Blue House where Poo Chai starts his revenge plan. But it won’t be as easy as that; prosecutor Kim Young Joo (Lee Joon Hyuk), a righteous man is on his trail, using every means to catch him…

Ah, buyaa.. Making such an awesome climax, and end it with the weirdest ending.. At least he could have hugged her or something… tsk, Koreans… Anyhow, the drama is neat, no doubt about that, I think I liked most of it… There were spots where I went like almost pulling my hair out of shock, or biting my nails till blood. But as a whole, the drama just felt a bit empty, hallow to be exact. Lee Min Ho = Daebak, Park Min Young = brilliant, but the screen-couple just didn’t get enough to make them seem in love. Besides the fact that they kept repeating that they love each other, and the fact that the kept going on with the ‘I’m too dangerous for you’, there was not as much chemistry. But daiim, both are damn talented in crying scenes, there are TONS of them..
All in all great action drama, not so great romance drama…

Jenji's verdict
I liked it. I liked it a lot. Yeah i know bad ending (except for the fighting scene O.O) but still i liked it. And yeah Lee Min Ho got something to do with it but still. It was interesting and exciting and awesome fighting scenes and good looking (mildly said) guy. Yes i agree the love story was a bit like "ughh.. come on!" and back and forth but it still wasnt that bad. It was a bit weird in the first few eps because like "why does he keep a picture of a young girl he doesnt know" and stuff like that, and some really surprising things you dont expect but a bit over the top i thought lol. But i definitely recommend this its another one of those great action, love, drama dramas >.< 'wondaafuul'!!
