Actress Park Min Young was chosen as the female lead for the upcoming drama “City Hunter.”

Park Min Young will appear in the upcoming SBS Wednesdays & Thursdays Drama “City Hunter” which will first air on May 25th. She will be playing a character named Kim Nana who once was a judo athlete and will become one of the bodyguards for the Blue House (Korea’s term for their own “White House”). She will be working alongside with Lee Min Ho who will be playing the male lead, Lee Yun Sung.

Kim Nana lost her parents from a sudden car accident, and lived her life by taking many part time jobs earning only 880,000 won. She finally got accepted as one of the bodyguards for Blue House, and meets Lee Yun Sung, one of the members of the National Network Map Team who also has a Ph.D degree from MIT. They will be sharing some bickering moments and then later fall for each other.

Park Min Young will be playing a character who was once a judo athlete, so she will be showing an athletic image by wearing the blue judo uniform, and a black suit to show off a bodyguard image.

The publisher of “City Hunter” stated, “It took us a long time to decide on who the female lead should be. We’ve decided on Park Min Young to play the female lead, Kim Nana, because we saw her bright and healthy image through her various dramas as well as acknowledged her acting skills.”

On the other hand, Park Min Young and Lee Min Ho both appeared in the 2007 drama “I Am Sam,” so it will be 4 years since they’ve worked in another drama together.

Lee Minho to star in the Korean version of ‘City Hunter’!

Date 2010.09.13 23:27

Korean actor Lee Min-ho has been cast in an upcoming Korean small screen adaptation of the Japanese comic "City Hunter," according to the show's PR firm 3HW COM on Monday.

"City Hunter," originally a Japanese manga series by Tsukasa Hojo, is about a private detective named Ryo Saeba who works to get rid of crime in the city of Tokyo during the latter half of the 1980s.

3HW announced that Lee will be playing the role of Ryo Saeba in the Korean drama version which will be based in present time Seoul, making it the first time the comic will be turned into a drama.

"Many famous directors and actors requested to remake 'City Hunters' but the original author had various demands which halted any productions to be created," an official from the show explained. "However, the author was satisfied with Lee taking on the lead role for the Korean adaptation due to his appeal and energy."

The new drama is schedule to air in the first half of next year.

Lee, 23, first appeared in various TV and short dramas in 2006. He rose to stardom in Korea and throughout other Asian countries playing the role of Goo Jun-pyo in the Korean adaptation of "Boys Over Flowers" (KBS, 2009) alongside actress Ku Hye-sun and actor Kim Hyun-joong.

His last small screen role was in March in the hit MBC series "Personal Taste," in which he pretends to be a homosexual man, opposite Korean actress Son Ye-jin.

Hi all Minoz:)

I want to share this news on LMH’s world:)

Have joy:x

Lee Jun Hyung Joins City Hunter with Lee Min Ho & Park Min Young

Actor Lee Jun Hyuk will be joining with Lee Min Ho and Park Min Young in the upcoming SBS Drama “City Hunter.”

The upcoming drama will be adapted from a famous Japanese manga with the same name, and it’s receiving a lot of attention. Lee Jun Hyuk will be playing a character named Kim Young Joo who’s dream is to become an attorney for the Seoul District Prosecutors Office. His character will be a workaholic who has a strong sense of duty and responsibility, and knows how to self-manage as well.

Although Young Joo doesn’t believe in love, he decides to find someone and get married. Suddenly, his father gets into an accident and coincidentally meets one of the presidential bodyguards, Kim Nana, and starts to fall in love with her which causes a love triangle between him, Kim Nana, and Lee Yoon Sung (played by Lee Min Ho).

The publisher of “City Hunter” stated, “We’ve carefully synchronized in choosing the cast members by focusing on their acting abilities,” and, “We were attracted by Lee Jun Hyuk’s dandy and clean cut image from watching his previous dramas, so we thought he was the perfect candidate to play Kim Young Joo.”

Jin Hyuk PD (produced “Great Inheritance” and “Prosecutor Princess”) and scriptwriter Hwang Eun Kyung (wrote “Dae Mul”) will be a part of the production team for “City Hunter.” The drama’s first episode is planning to air on May 25th.

Lee Jun-hyuk joins City Hunter

Lee Jun-hyuk is joining the cast of City Hunter, the franchise formerly set in the seedy underbelly of metropolitan life which has now been transferred to the much less gritty Blue House. I guess it really IS the season for presidential dramas.

Lee will play a prosecutor with the Seoul District Prosecutor’s Office, a workaholic characterized by a strong sense of duty with dreams of becoming attorney general. He doesn’t believe in love and intends to marry a woman with a sterling background…but things never go the way we intend, do they? Instead, an accident involving his father leads him to an encounter with a Blue House bodyguard (Park Min-young), and he finds himself unexpectedly drawn to her. Thus begins the love triangle between him, the bodyguard, and her other love interest (our hero), Lee Min-ho, who’s part of the international communications team at the Blue House.

I found Lee Jun-hyuk pretty charming in Three Brothers as he cheerfully (and persistently!) pursued his honey, but he was less interesting in I Am Legend as the not-quite-love-interest. (Methinks the plans for a big romance fizzled when they realized he had zero chemistry with Kim Jung-eun.) He also had a recurring cameo on Secret Garden, where he was the underhanded star who tried to steal Seul away from Oska with lies, oh such stupid lies.

I’m neither excited nor disappointed in his casting here, though that may be because I’m no longer that excited about City Hunter in general. Oh, I’ll still be watching — Lee Min-ho fascinates me — and I hope it proves itself to be much more compelling than its setup suggests. But let’s just say I’m not gonna be holding any breaths.

City Hunter is planned for a May 25 premiere on SBS, which makes it a Wednesday-Thursday drama.

LEE MIN HOO looks so young in the posters.  Not credible enough as a detective or whatever (I'm now confused on what his role is really gonna be).  He doesn't look tough and strong, too.  I hope the producers made him appear more matured like in "Boys Over Flowers". 

So many changes in the storyline have been made in this drama and it doesn't sound like a remake of the original "City Hunter" anymore.  I wonder what the Japanese author is going to say about this.  If the production team wanted a different plot, they should have not bought the story rights from the original writer, in the first place.  They had waited so long for this project to push through, waiting for the right casts, only to end up in an almost different project.  I think they should change the title now so as not to mislead the viewers. 

Haay, but I like Lee Min Ho and Park Min Young.  Although I'm a bit disappointed of not seeing him as a playboy detective, I will still be watching this drama.
