I was expecting a slight wind but i was swept by the hurricane that this drama brought to me

Lee Min Ho has this magnetic pull but in this one this pull was increased to a whole new level.throughout the drama my eyes rarely left him.He silenced his critics with this drama,that being handsome is not all he is.he's got talent too.

This is a fairly refreshing drama dealing with action and read more romance at the same time.it did its job perfectly.the action sequences were good
the acting by Kim Sang Joong is amazing.i loved him as yoon sung's father.He was very convincing as the bad guy in this one.Park Min young did her job well too.the best treat out of this was lee yoon suk who as Kim young Joo won my heart.he stood out as the upright lawyer whom we could trust to always stand on the right side of the law

Min Ho as Yoon Sung was far more than a treat.it was like getting icecream topped with chocolate.He sure knows how to kick,always being one step ahead of the law.the story is pretty good too with every episode's ending we'r always kept on hanging by the cliff.its full with twists and turns where one can never guess the end.One of the best things about this drama was i saw for the first time the more than twisted love-hate relationship between a son and a father.it was intriguing.

The chemistry between the leads is full of spark.the tension between them is so palpable that the room could probably light up in fire ay moment.their romance is filled with cute moments and some bickering too.This drama has the right amount of everything-romance,action and a solid story

The OSTs are simply amazing the best one being'suddenly'.
i would not want to rewatch this because the mystery and the suspence is gone the 2nd time around but i just might watch the romance parts again because the romance bit is jst too good for words

the only flaw i found in this drama was at some point it lost all its cuteness as the romance fizzled out in the end and i was dissapointed with a few things that happened in the last few episodes

apart from this thing the drama touched all the right spots with me and remains one of the best i've seen so far

This is the second drama I saw and fell in love with Lee Min Ho immediately. This show came very useful to me when I was idle and depressed because I had nothing else to do on a lazy weekend.

The story line and plot were engrossing right from the first episode. I loved a political thriller. It had amazing action and marvelous performances by Lee Min Ho and Park Min Young. read more I think they are the best pair of any drama I have seen so far. Most importantly, the characters were as good as the actors.

This show has the best characterizations I have yet seen in a kdrama. The guy isn't a jerk and the girl isn't lacking in brains or pride. I love that she doesn't need saving from a guy every time because she can fight for herself pretty well- both physically and emotionally. I wish we had more strong female protagonists like Kim Na Na in all kdramas. If that happens, kdramas would be unbeatable.

I was constantly interested in how the revenge would take place and how each operations would be carried out. I was excessively bored because of the plot of the sick mother. The show had much interesting things for me to care for, so I don't think it was a necessity. It was just a plot device for the emotional factor to lure female viewers. Other than that, it had a great ending and I never felt let down. There were some dull moments here and there, but it was never beyond my patience to skip it altogether.

I recommend this show to everyone who is tired of cheesy romances in dramas.

    Another overrated drama :3
    I watched this drama after Gaksital/Bridal Mask and dropped it at episode 8.
    Boring.

    After watching Healer, and re-watch City Hunter, the first word that came to my mind was "boring". I mean, City Hunter is a very-well done drama, with an interesting plot and great actors, but Healer is above all of that without discussion.

    Idk why people love city hunter, I watched all the episodes (because I don't like to drop a drama) and it was too predictable.. It didn't catch my attention, it was boring to me and I can't even understand why

    I might be the only person who didn't like this. i enjoyed just the first 5 episodes of this drama after that, it was painful to watch, too predictable . I like Lee Min Ho but this was awful. Just jump to the last episode and was worst.

    This drama is friggin' awesome! I found it because I had heard some good things about it and also because I am a fan of Lee Min Ho - and I wasn't disappointed! I didn't like the manga very much, but this storyline I dig. Great acting, GREAT action scenes, plot is well built up and it never gets boring since it has that perfect mix of action, melodrama, 180 degree turns, humor and romance. So, sure, even though it's an action drama, it still has a lot of different layers to it. Love it, love it, love it, love it. I will def come back and see it again.

    This is hands down one of the best kdramas - it has a little bit of everything in it. It's funny though, I started this drama for Lee Min Ho - but I ended the drama a huge Lee Jun Hyuk fan. :D
