'City Hunter' got almost everything right. Direction, cast, plot, romance--while the soundtrack was nothing special--it's few shortcomings could be easily overlooked.

The story was engaging throughout every episode, there was always something about it to keep me interested. Nothing about this drama was overly frustrating (most K-Dramas are a little TOO frustrating)--as I always knew that City Hunter would persevere. As Lee Yoon Sung was always somehow one step ahead of everyone read more who'd get in his way.

The only 'must watch' K Drama out there, I'd say. Although it may not've been the most romantic, cute, or original drama I've seen, it's surely the best all-around. The director of this drama did a more impressive job than most film directors at some points-- Everyone has a favorite, this is mine.

A drama with good plots, stunts and romance!
The episodes based in Tailand are fantastic, it made me fall in love with Lee Min ho's acting and style all over again!
The action scenes and ideas were well choreographed and stunning to watch. I had edge-of-my-seat-jaw dropping moments quite a few times during this series.
Apart from a few disappointment (deaths) in the series, the drama is excellent to watch.

They are both revenge dramas where a carefree man is transformed into a violent one through tragic circumstances.

There are also some similarities in how the father-child relationships are played out, as well as the way in which the main characters are hunted to reveal their true identities.
Recommended by JimmyChooLove
Both are intense action dramas starring a male main character who is extremely skilled at fighting and sneaking around. They both hide their face from the world around them and conceal their identities, even from the ones they love. Both dramas contain corruption within politicians and the "higher-ups", and mysteries from the past that need to be uncovered. Not to mention, they both star the lovely Park Min Young<3.

    I just finished watching the show and I have to say I'm so disappointed at the ending!!! Especially the last few minutes...I feel like they just gave up on the last few minutes and leave the ending like that...otherwise it was a decent show...

    I wish people would stop acting like Healer is a godsend to the viewing public, because although it was a good drama, it was jam-packed with cliches as much as the next drama. City Hunter is a little similar, but at least, I was more invested in the action. Healer is more romance based.

      Well, to be honest, it's been a while since I've watched it. I vaguely remember I felt frustrated because of how lame I thought it to be, at the time. I knowmy word of choice isn't well thought, I'm basically hating on it, but the the fact that I managed to watch the whole thing till the ending means it must have been an okay drama. i just think it wasn't that worthwhile. Yhanks for your reply!

    It's a well written drama even though it originally came from a Japanese Manga still they've manage to give us something unique and good. The casts are good , i just hate that they didn't focused more on the couple at the last episode.

    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
