Lee Min Ho Transforms into a Badass with Guns for “City Hunter”
We’ve seen Lee Min Ho climb trees, fight twelve-against-one, and do judo for his upcoming drama “City Hunter.” This time, Lee Min Ho displays his city hunter charms with guns. According to the production company behind “City Hunter,” Lee Min Ho showed off perfect shooting skills while filming in Thailand. Apparently, he was good enough to be mistaken for a shooting athlete. It’s been said that the actor had been honing his gunnery skills for quite some time with private lessons from a professional. He also frequently visited the shooting range to practice whenever he had time.
During the shoot in Thailand, Lee Min Ho displayed his skills with ease with various revolvers, shotguns, and rifles. Representatives of the production company stated, “Normal people flinch at the sound of gun shots, but Lee Min Ho was a natural with guns. He not only handled the guns like a professional, but also handled the situation like a pro.”
“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.
“City Hunter” will broadcast its pilot episode on May 25th.
