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.

City Hunter was one of drama for me that I was particularly attracted.

The story is very gripping and full of action (I love drama and action films), the cast was spectacular, the actors were very great.
Especially Lee Min Ho is an amazing actor, I also followed Boys Over Flower but in this drama has surpassed himself.
Park Min Young that interprets Kim Na Na I only saw this drama and read more I must say that she is very good.

I almost want to see him again, I do not think easily forget this drama

I recommend everyone to view it. I'm not English so I apologize if I wrote something wrong ^^

    Thanks, I seen innocent man, I hated, no loathed the scum swine ex girlfriend, I'll never watch another drama with that trash, so unworthy of the ground she walks on, skank ass bitch, another thing I so loathed was the despicable, shallow, and obsessive love triangle, these lowlife scum despicable writers just HAVE to ruin a good story by adding these dog awful ludicrous love triangles. But thanks for the suggestions otherwise, I will watch each and every suggestion you have given me. I thank you ever so kindly for replying and helping me out. :)))

    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

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

      I'd say watch the ending at least. If you haven't seen the ending; you haven't seen nothing.

    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
