Derived from a popular manwha (manga) 'City Conquest' by Shin Hyung Bin and was illustrated by Kim Jong Seon (first published last June 9 1997). Baek Mir (Kim Hyun Joong) grew up with a rough childhood. Abandoned by his parents when he was young made him bitter about the world he lives in. He lives in a place where prostitutes are all over the place. Baek Mir hates the dirty doings of the officials in his country and swore to himself to stop them with his own fists. When he was 17 yrs old, his father (Kim Seung Woo) came back. When he started to live with his father, he didn't cope up well at the beginning. During his highschool days, he met several friends and one of them is Tae Soo Min (Unannounced). They became close, so close that Soo Min fell in love with him. When Baek Mir's father died, his whole world almost tore apart and his determination to take down the filthy society grew much stronger. He fell in love with a lady name Lee Dan Bi (Jung Yoo Mi) who is a jewelry designer and has the kindest heart. Dan Bi has a loyal suitor Cha Ji Ryong who apparently became Baek Mir's ultimate rival.

    I heard that the broadcasting network is unconfirmed. I heard that it was going to air in SBS but nothing is confirmed. Let's hope that it doesn't air in a JongPyun channel! ...And the cast...is Tae Soo Min even included in the story? Why no news? Well, i'm pretty sure she's included since Cha Ji Ryong Only looks up to her. I hope the drama will be successful!

    Yeah, I was kinda thinking if they will gonna include Soo Min's character... coz until now no news about who will play that role. For me Tae Soo Min's character is important in the story and I'm really excited of who's gonna play her role (that's if they will still include her kekekeke ) But I'm still hoping until they starts to shoot! hehe XD

    [NEWS] City Conquest's Never Been Seen In Korea Strategy

    "The first shooting spots will start on July 10 in the villages of Nikko, Tochigi Perfecture in Japan. Japan already guaranteed $4million dollars for the shooting progress. The strategy for City Conquest will offer/expect for a larger scale globally. So far, the spectacular action and melodramatic visual that we will offer is never been featured in Korea. All computer graphics and all of the shooting equipments are expected to be in the best level."

    Did you expect Kim Hyun Joong to be the lead cast for this drama?
    "Of course! Not long ago, 'Boys Over Flowers' was aired in Myanmar and the viewership percentage was 55%. In Asian countries such as Japan, Kim Hyun Joong's popularity is by far the best. You might think that casting Kim Hyun Joong in this drama is a mistake, but in this drama I'm 100% confident for Kim Hyun Joong"

    I have few celebrities in mind..but it's probably non of them. I noticed that the female actresses in HJ dramas are actresses I never expect. Hopefully the actress playing TSM is younger or the same age as HJ since so far all the major cast are older than HJ. He needs a buddy :) lol....and boss around. lol.

    The fact that this world is such inconsistent… The fact that more than anyone else, she smiles and cries, she doesn’t surrender to the result,
    That “She” who is strong inside is the winner . . You will never know.. the thing that people who underwent it all know.. KimJaeJoong

    @arased11: Who are they then? The few celebrities you have in mind? Kekekeke maybe one of them will be chosen ^^ It's always the unexpected who got chosen, you know *wink* Kekeke
    ;)

    Here are some tidbits from the manhwa ^^~ Kekeke

    This one is Baek Mir's first day in highschool. His father got him back so he enrolled Mir in a school. Mir's father is a rich man. If I'm not mistaken he is an alliance of the President, not sure though. This is also Baek Mir and Tae Soo Min's first meeting.

    image

    And this was Cha Jiryong and Baek Mir's first encounter. They are fighting because of Soo Min and Dan Bi. Hehehe of course, Mir won.

    Thank you for starting this thread! :D I'm looking forward to Nam Goong Min's comeback after Can you hear my heart? He's an incredible actor and one of my absolute faves. 

    This is going to be one of those revenge dramas no? Its familiar territory for both Nam Goong Min and Kim Seung Woo.
