This the first Action drama that impressed me. The actors were amazing and showed so much talent. i loved how i was so curious to know what would happen next every time i finished each episode. There was a perfect mixture of action, romance and revenge in this drama and the ending was okay though i was expecting a little bit more elaboration. But this was a great action movie!!!

Now come on now, if you haven't at least watched this drama by now, we've got a problem. LOL, no but seriously if you haven't even heard of this drama before, i recommend you start watching......LIKE NOW.
I can't even begin...ugh. Its such a perfect drama. It's actually the first action drama i've ever watched really. I watched it back in 2012, and man, i still love this damn drama. It's still read more #1 on my list, and idk if that'll ever change unless, they have a CITY HUNTER SEASON 2!!! NAO WHAT?!?! No but lets actually get to this review ;p
Lee Minho at first, i srsly didn't get why most people liked him, or even why i really liked him as an actor before this drama, except for the fact that he was just another cute face who did cliche dramas..But then City Hunter came to light. And s*** got real.
He portrayed his character Lee Yoon-sung so beautifully, i can't even..He made you feel every emotion his character was feeling, he was just THAT convincing. He was super sexy while doing it too. And the action was amazing, i never wanted someone to punch someone in the face so many times in my life than i did in this drama LMFAO.
Oh and you know those dramas that frustrate you and how theres always that evil witch causing trouble. Yeah there will be quite alot of that in here. But don't worry Minho is here :D
and the man who played his dad, Jin Pyo, that man, i will never forget him, he did such an amazing job. i can't even, the whole revenge concept and his love for Yoon-sung, it just hurts tbqh.
And then there's the lovely Park Min Young, this girl had me from the jump, shes an amazing actress, and once again she doesn't fail to that here (as expected), the love story isn't cliche and boring and too lovey dovey to the point you wanna cringe but it works into the story and she not like most kdrama females a damsel in distress, she strong and independent which i totally love.
And the prosecutor man, Kim Young Joo, baksu, outstanding job, i loved this man.
This drama seriously deserves every single rating, award and amount of publicity it got. It was truly beautiful. And what makes this drama even more fantastic is i NEVER, and when i say never I MEAN NEVER re-watch and i've watched this TWICE, AND THAT'S A BIG FREAKING DEAL. So i recommend you watch this.....NOW! you'll love me for it..

Make a Recommendation More recs (47)Recommendations

I've written this recommendation before earlier in the series of Healer on how I thought CH and Healer have the same feel to each other initially. So now I'm here to edit and correct myself... Yes they do initially, but after episode 3 or more of Healer, I've come to realised that these 2 are very different dramas in their own rights. CH has great action scenes and delves more into the revenge-plot. Whereas, Healer isn't about revenge at all. More time is given into character development which makes each character much more layered. Healer has more OTP moments which makes me love and it isn't solely focused on full-on action (although I do love the action here). Similarities between these two dramas would only be the same lead actress and the action aspect, and then the two story goes off quite differently. PMY plays a very different character between these 2 to the point where I almost didn't recognise that she's the same girl for both dramas.

There's no dragging or boring bits for both dramas - each episode constantly keep you on your toes and wanting to know what happens next. While both have serious plots there are just enough comedic and romantic elements in between them for a more enjoyable watching experience. Healer of course has more romance/OTP interaction ? If you love one drama or the other then I would recommend both. I thought I should clarify since there were a lot of comparisons between CH and Healer.

The main actor :D
And of course - good plot, actions scenes and romance :D

    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

      Enough to keep me interested till the end. I thought the show had a good balance of action, drama and romance.

      Thanks :) It bothers me when a action drama is overloaded with romance. I think I might check it out.

      You watched the first 4 episodes and still don't think it's great!? Mmm, well i'm not sure if u're gonna like it then. Maybe u didn't like it because it's full of action, cuz the story is great! Anyway, i'll say u should give it a chance, continue watching two more episodes. The 6th episode has a very good heartbreaking scene </3 Enjoy!
