“City Hunter” Teases with Couple Shots – Romantic Developments Underway?!
SSD released teaser images of the main lead couple from tomorrow’s episode of “City Hunter.” The photos show Lee Yoon Sung (Lee Min Ho) tending to Kim Nana’s (Park Min Young) wounds. While viewers were aware that Lee Yoon Sung had developed special feelings towards Kim Nana, he acted cool and uncaring towards the judo-athlete-turned-body-guard. In the coming episode, Yoon Sung finally shows Nana part of his actual feelings as he tenderly cares for her wound.
The scene was filmed on May 23rd by an apartment complex somewhere in Seoul, and SSD revealed that the wound on Kim Nana’s face is from her near death incident at the end of fourth episode. Viewers were left with a cliff hanger last Thursday when the drama ended with Jin Pyo, Yoon Sung’s surrogate father, aiming for a shot at Nana’s forehead sniper-style in his quest to take down the “group of five,” before a shadowy figure pushes her to safety.
In the teaser images, Lee Yoon Sung is delicately applying Band-Aids to Nana’s face. Despite his playboy past, Yoon Sung clearly looks nervous and anxious at being so close to her. Nana, on the other hand, does not seem too pleased to receive his care.
Representatives of SSD stated, “While Lee Yoon Sung is this charismatic city hunter to the rest of the world, he’s just a fluttering boy in love in front of Kim Nana.” Despite their bickering chemistry on screen, those on set have stated that actors Lee Min Ho and Park Min Young are great friends and professionals.
Lee Min Ho plays Lee Yoon Sung, a MIT PH. D. graduate who works in the Blue House National Communications Team to spy on the President and his advisors. His ultimate goal is to hunt down the “group of five” who were responsible for his biological father’s (Park Sang Min) unjust death. Park Min Young plays Kim Nana, a secret service agent who dreams of protecting the President. Currently, she’s responsible for taking care of the President’s daughter Choi Da Hye (Goo Hara).
“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 Tokyo during the 1980s, but the drama adaptation takes place in modern day Seoul. “City Hunter” airs every Wednesdays and Thursdays on SBS at 9:55PM KST.
