If I had to describe how City Hunter made me feel, there would be a lot of incoherent and hysterical sounds coming out of my mouth . That’s how good it was . But I’ll try to stay sane and really talk about that oh-so-wonderful drama !

When I heard about the korean adaptation of City Hunter, I must say, I was quite excited. The main character is an amazing cop with read more a cheap casanova personality. But in that drama, there is some cop action (more bodyguard for the president action) but the cheap casanova is nowhere to be seen… I know, they had to change the plot because of the similarities with Plan B (which was pretty bleh.) but they could AT LEAST keep that “cheesy pervert” vibe… Or change the name of the drama.

It was what I thought first… GOD I WAS WRONG. After a few episodes, I totally forgot about the original City Hunter.

This is probably one of the best drama I’ve ever seen .It wasn’t as funny as I thought it would be, but definitely not a bad drama. And for some various reasons:

- Some REALLY GOOD actors. Lee Min Ho kicked some serious ass. Boy, that guy can act !!!
- a REALLY GOOD plot . The all revenge plan was oh-so-good.
- Some REALLY GOOD eye candies. Lee Min Ho and that sexy prosecutor for the ladies and Park Min Young who is too pretty for her own good.
- Some REALLY GOOD kick ass fight scenes . Seriously, mind blowing. *___* Did you ever seen a cool fight scene with a bottle of water ? Well, City Hunter did it.
- Some REALLY GOOD close up on Lee Min Ho’s ass . And Dat ass is a masterpiece.
- some REALLY GOOD close up on Sexy Prosecutor. That sauna scene… I will never forget it .

I think most of drama’s writers don’t know how to finish their story. But not this one. I was, for the first time in my life I think, pleasant by how all the story ended.

Guys, I can't stress this enough this Action Drama was to die for! Has a lot of action going on and romance in parts. Overall it was something I was definitely glued to and couldn't stop watching I felt so many emotions all the way through it! At one point I was thinking awww! At other I was like rkjfhgdbiujvkbedf OMFG D:< I'm going to stab them! But I really enjoyed this read more and definitely recommend to those who love action movies and romance c: Wonderful combination and story line too. Hope that you enjoy as much as I did! c:

i watched this after watching healer and boy, i love lee min ho but i must say healer is way better , the development of the story in CH is quite slow and some scenes are redundant whereas in Healer, each main character contributes a lot to the development of the story , fast paced, not boring, never had i fast forward, it has a good amount of comedy , romance and action, the lead man is just so versatile, acting is great! a must watch!

    Anyone know of any other good revenge type dramas? Already seen Healer, this one and Healer are both great drama's, so in love with our main lead female, her personality, wow... Don't want anything with a despicable and ludicrous love triangle, thanks...

      I would suggest Cruel City, Innocent Man, Pinocchio and You're All Surrounded, although Innocent man is an entirely differnet type of reveng, as he's trying to take revenge on the woman who wronged him years ago. Pinocchio is also a little different because there's no action, the revenge has to do with ruining someone's repution, then completely destroying them through that. They're all quite entertaining dramas. Cruel City probably has the most action and suspense

      @kiseki @noneknows boring? I watched bridal mask and city hunter and city hunter IMO is better. I recommended this to a few friends that never watched korean dramas and they LOVED it. A "celeberity" drama would be healer. Now that was boring imho. Bridal mask was good but it got a little draggy in some parts.

      everyone have their own preference, and for me city hunter is boring, it was too predictable, that's why I drop it.

      @Nick I know LMH was already famous when he starred in City Hunter which drew alot of fans. It was boring for me because the story has no room for romance but the romance was awkwardly injected as soon as the main character arrives in U.S to begin his mission. Then they delve further into the realm of the cliche when LMH stands in front of a fountain, and look behold behind him is the girl of his 'destiny'. Forgive me for barfing, that was the moment I knew i will drop this drama but i kept going for 5 more episodes but the story just did not improve at all.

      @kiseki ahhhh thats the thing though. You were in it for romance. I noticed healer had a lot of romance which is why more people may have liked it even more. I'm a guy so I like action/thriller. But I also like romance. But healers romance was predictable.

    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.

      @snow I'm the opposite. Healer was boring imo and city hunter was beyond entertaining. I just don't get what people see in Healer. I watched 7 episodes trying my best to like Healer but its draggy.

    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
