The long awaited drama finally arrived, the first 2 episodes of City Hunter were aired and guess what ? We liked it !
Derailed from early promise – Lee Min Ho be a flamboyant playboy detective who hunts city criminal , just as the original famous manga- we , instead , got Lee Min Ho , a tend to be a cold man, with heavy past story -which likely only happens in movie or drama- who works undercover in the hunt of The Gang of 5.
It’s a super tough hunt job because The Gang of 5 are not nobody, they are powerful people : the South Korea’s President, super elite political and military officers. Duh !
But the hunt must be done for the sake of his never seen father. Oh, what an early story !
Kudos to the writer,successfully wrapped Lee Min Ho’s background story , smartly not draggy and efficiently in entire episode 1 -from Rangoon, Myanmar to North Korea until Golden Triangle in Thailand’s border- so steps over to episode 2 we encounter the basic storyline, the hunt and of course the love story.
Lee Min Ho is mighty fine in acting -wise , even it’s safe to say that he is the best alumni among the super handsome actors of Boys Before Flowers. Ha ! He perfectly embodies his character. Flawless.
And hate her or love her, Park Min Young is beyond expectation, she’s doing fine on portraying her ‘girl next door’ role. Love her !
And we must mention this person before onward to episode 3, Lee Min Ho’s adopted father, 56-year-old actor Kim Sang Joong is absolutely gorgeous , body-wise and acting-wise.
Beside Lee Min Ho, he’s the heart of episode 1 and he doesn’t fail a bit ! Daebak !
It’s a well-made drama so far, in the constant not-boring pace and deliver useful and important scene only. So, hopefully the rating will rise for the next episodes to give this drama justice.
Okay, enough for now, hurry come episode 3, can’t wait !
