Four poster images for upcoming SBS drama “City Hunter” have been released. Each of the four posters takes a different theme and can be described as ambitious, mysterious, surreal, and intensive.
The five lead and supporting actors – Lee Min Ho, Park Min Young, Lee Joon Hyuk, Goo Hara, and Hwang Sun Hee – decorated the main poster for the drama with their confident and cool walk. In the poster, Lee Min Ho showed off his long limbs and masculinity with his poised and self-assured pose. Lee Min Ho’s love interest Park Min Young displayed her character’s upbeat and attractive charms with a bright smile. Lee Joon Hyuk, who plays a prosecutor in the series, exhibited a sharp charismatic look; Goo Hara, who plays the first daughter, wore a lovely pink blouse with shorts for an adorable yet stylish image; and Hwang Sun Hee shed her scary serial murderer image from “Sign” for a caring veterinarian look with a casual striped tee over a tank top.
The second poster expresses the love between Lee Min Ho and Park Min Young’s characters in a dream-like fantasy photo. In the poster, the two share an intense passionate gaze. Fans are getting more and more curious about the love story between the MIT alum high-level government official Lee Yoon Sung and judo athlete turned body guard Kim Nana.
The third poster displays Lee Yoon Sung’s father, played by actor Kim Sang Joong, as he watches over his son. Kim Sang Joong’s character is said to have played a huge role in making Lee Yoon Sung the man he is today. Viewers can feel the tension between them from just looking at the poster.
The last mysterious yet magical poster shows Lee Min Ho plunging into the darkness of the sea/city and Park Min Young as a guardian angel descending to save him.
“City Hunter” is based on the best-selling Japanese manga by Hojo Tsukasa, which sold over a million copies just in Korea. The original manga by Tsukasa is set in 1980 Tokyo, but the drama adaptation will take place in modern day Seoul. It is the manga’s first drama adaptation; and as a result, it is receiving a lot of media attention, as well as expectations, worldwide. Director Jin Hyuk, who catapulted the careers of Lee Seung Gi and Han Hyo Joo in “Shining Inheritance” (2009) and Kim So Yeon and Park Shi Woo in “Prosecutor Princess” (2010), and screenwriter Hwan Eun Kyung, who wrote “New Heart” (2007) and “Daemul” (2010) have teamed up for “City Hunter.”
“City Hunter” is set to air its first episode May 25th.
