At the Script Reading for SBS’s New Drama “City Hunter”


City Hunter’s” dream cast includes Lee Min Ho of KBS2’s “Boys Before Flowers” (2009), Park Min Young of “Sungkyunkwan Scandal” (2010), Goo Hara of KARA, and Lee Joon Hyuk. On the 14th, the cast got together for three hours for a script reading.

Lee Min Ho showed up decked out in a sleek black suit with a new wavy hairstyle. He returns as Lee Yoon Sung, a mastermind government official who works at the Blue House. He’s shown great passion for acting and has the entire production staff expecting great results.

Park Min Young sported a long straight hairstyle with a fresh and bright smile. She plays a former judo athlete who now works as a bodyguard at the Blue House. Appearance-wise, it seemed that she got the physical characteristics down at the reading.

Lee Joon Hyuk, who’s known for a dandy image, dumped his former image and showed off his masculinity with a khaki-colored jumper and baseball cap. He plays the prosecutor who firmly believes that justice will prevail.

While “City Hunter” is Goo Hara’s debut into the acting field, she received praise from Director Jin Hyuk for her acting skills. She showed off her natural beauty by showing up to the reading without makeup. Goo Hara also displayed great dedication as she stayed behind after the reading to practice her lines.

 A representative of the production company behind “City Hunter” said, “There is a great chemistry between the passion of the younger actors and the experiences of the older, veteran actors. The entire cast is focused on making “City Hunter” into a great drama.”

 “City Hunter” is based on a manga by Tsukasa Hojo, and its characters grow and mature as they go through a series of problems. Director Jin Hyuk, who catapulted the careers of Lee SeungGi and Han Hyo Joo in “Shining Inheritance” (2009) and Kim So Hyun and Park Shi Woo in “Prosecutor Princess” (2010), and screen writer Hwang Eun Kyung, who wrote “New Heart” (2007) and Daemul (2010) are working together for “City Hunter.”
