City Hunter – Posters, trailer, and press conference

The cast of SBS’s City Hunter attended their press conference on May 17. The girls (Park Min Young, Goo Hara, and Hwang Sun Hee) looked cute, Lee Jun Hyuk hot in a suit, and I don’t really like Lee Min Ho’s popped collar. Nothing more to say. I’ll let the pictures do the talking.

Lee Min Ho getting around…

And Park Min Young getting around…

Park and Goo being cute…

And Lee Jun Hyuk looking good…

Just a day before the press conference, the officials posters were released.

Official trailer for City Hunter:

ENGLISH TRANSLATIONS:

Lee Min Ho: There aren’t any pretty girls here. I absolutely hate places like this.

Park Min Young: That player!

Park Min Young: Where were you looking at while in the middle of training? And so sleazily, nevertheless.

Lee Jun Hyuk: That girl, where is she?

Lee Min Ho: You have such a strange taste.

Goo Hara: You’re very rough with women.

Park Min Young: You’re really a jerk.

Caption: The truth about that man’s past.

Chun Ho Jin: We have the responsibility to bring our men back safely!

Kim Mi Sook: My baby! Where is my baby?!

Kim Sang Joong: I am the ruler(?) of that baby. (I’m not sure about this one)

Lee Min Ho: I’m going to kill all these bastards.

Voice (Lee Min Ho’s or Lee Jun Hyuk’s?): Does justice exist in Korea?

Lee Min Ho: I’m going to let you go now. That is my destiny.

I wasn’t really sure what the trailer was trying to show, but at the press conference, some of the confusion about the drama synopsis was clarified. Lee Min Ho plays a character named Lee Yoon-sung, who was raised by his adoptive father, Lee Jin-pyo (Kim Sang Joong), for revenge purposes. In appearance, he’s an elite MIT grad, but the truth is that he was raised as an assassin in Thailand since childhood. For his revenge, he must also forsake his feelings of love. City Hunter is based upon a Japanese manga by the same name. The drama changed the setting to the present time, and is going tell the story on why Lee Yoon-sung became a city hunter.

Okay, with that explanation, the trailer makes a lot more sense (kinda), but I’m still not too excited about this drama. But we’ll soon find out when City Hunter premieres on May 25th.

    Park Sang-min… Whyyyy!?!?
    I just cannot wrap my head around him getting on board this project, even if (by the looks of it) is just a cameo appearance.

    The entire thing doesn’t look ‘that bad’, it’s just another popcorn munching brainless thrill show, or rather another: Fugitive-Plan B (if it’s bad) or a Time Between Dog and Wolf (if it’s half-decent).

    Sounds like a mess

    I’d rather they stick with the original manga. I don’t know what to expect with this one, accept hoping that City Hunter can really fight and fire like a City Hunter. We’ll see.
