SSD released stills of Lee Min Ho and Lee Joon Hyuk at the set of hit drama “City Hunter.” In tonight’s episode, Lee Yoon Sung (Lee Min Ho) and Kim Young Joo (Lee Joon Hyuk) will finally engage in a physical fight after bickering and bantering in the past sixteen episodes.
Tension between the two has been mounting ever since Yoon Sung took his revenge against target No. 3, Young Joo’s father Kim Jong Shik. In episode 17, they rid themselves of the “cordial” façade and throw each other to the ground. However, even as they fight, Yoon Sung maintains a certain level of control in order to keep his City Hunter identity hidden.
No matter how simple an action scene is, perfect synchronization between the actors and the crew is vital. As a result, there were several run-throughs before the actual shoot. Lee Min Ho and Lee Joon Hyuk displayed their friendship with each other as they talked and laughed throughout rehearsals. However, as soon as the cameras started rolling, they displayed the professionalism as they delved into their characters to film a perfect action scene. Despite their tension-driven onscreen relationship, the two actors are quite close and play an integral role in raising the atmosphere on set.
A representative of SSD explained, “The passion and efforts these two young actors bring help energize the rest of the cast and crew. As the drama nears its end, the laborious shootings are taking a toll on everyone, but Lee Min Ho and Lee Joon Hyuk’s energy livens up our spirits.”
“City Hunter” will air its seventeenth episode tonight, July 20th, on SBS at 9:55PM KST.
