See I told all you City Hunter fans out there that I’d give this drama another go! I’m so glad I did because it was soooo good. For those of you who were like me falling off the first episode after 20 minutes; seriously keep watching! It really becomes addicting. Each episode has crazy cliff hangers that will keep you up till like 5am totally ignoring the fact you have to get up in a few hours and get ready for work/school (trust me I did it).
So alright here’s the run down. Back in the 80s, 20 S. Korean soldiers were murdered after they completed a secret mission. However 1 of the men survived and vowed to take revenge on the men who ordered the kill. That man who survived, Lee Jin Pyo kidnaps the new-born child of his friend who was one of the 20 killed and runs off to Thailand. Lee Min Ho plays that child who grows up training and preparing to help Lee Jin Pyo with his revenge plan. Let me just say if you loved Goo Joon Pyo you’re going to love Lee Min Ho’s character Lee Yoon Sung. He’s basically the same except he doesn’t have major anger management issues and has a better hair style. Also just like in BOF he has a crazy parent. His father Lee Jin Pyo is totally insane, out of his mind, off the wall CRAZY. I believe if Goo Joons Pyos mom got together with Lee Jin Pyo and had a baby they would create the Devil.
I loved how this drama had a little bit of everything in it. Lots of action scenes and blood so its great if you have a guy you wanna share a drama with. Great eye candy moments such as a repeat BOF shower scene with Lee Min Ho staring at himself in a mirror while water just streamed down his body! The prosecutor played by Lee Joon Hyuk sitting in just a towel in the sauna while his hot body glistened of sweat! Then of course there’s a bit of comedy, a complicated love story between Lee Min Ho and Park Min Young who just happens to be his real life girlfriend ^_^
However I gave this drama only 3 out of 5 Soju Bottles based on the fact something happened in the drama that I just did not care for what so ever. Totally uncalled for and really didn’t add to or take away from the storyline. Also I usually don’t mind drama endings but this one was just weird. I’d like to think I’m a fairly intelligent person and this ending just left me confused and asking myself “okayyy what was that all about?” Maybe a part 2 is in the works? Either way City Hunter is a must see!
