City Hunter - 2011
Genre: Action / Suspense / Romance
Director: Jin Hyuk
Writer: Soo Jin Choi, Eun Kyung Hwang
Cast: Lee Min Ho, Park Min Young, Kim Sang-Jung
Lee Yeung Su applies and got accepted at the Blue House for the National Communication Department with a hidden agenda. He was selected because of his prestigious background having been graduated from MIT. He meets Kim Nana who works as a bodyguard at the Blue House, and they begin to fall for each other.
I enjoyed this whole series. It's actually my first time to watch a Korean drama with all the action and mystery. Although, City Hunter Lee Yeung Su has the same qualities with Batman. While the Prosecutor Kim Jeong Su, got similarities with TwoFace albeit keeping his morale intact.
Anyway, it was unique all on it's own, because it also mixed romance, and family life in between and the issues between politics and corruption. Of course it never fails to place the Korean flair of comedic scenes and equally heartbreaking ones.
Sometimes, it tends to be disturbing, as trust and loyalty issues are being resolved.
The last two episodes turned out to be quite exciting, and both unpredictable and predictable, but still can make you wonder how it would turn out in the end. The ending was quite sad but somehow something relieving as the cycle of revenge finally comes to an end.
