City Hunter: Biggest Korean Drama premieres on ABS-CBN

Last Friday, Jan 20, ABS-CBN held an advance screening in Dolphy Theater for its newest Korean series “City Hunter”. The screening was attended by a few members of the press and bloggers and the fans of the series’ lead star, Lee Min Ho.  This is one of ABS-CBN’s pre-Chinese New Year offerings as there are many exciting shows lined-up for this year.

I’m actually one of those excited to watch the series since I saw the plug of “City Hunter”, on TV, it looks very promising and exciting.  The series is said to be one of the biggest and most expensive action, drama, suspense and romantic Korean series of 2011.  Plus Lee Min Ho looks really hot in the series as he prepared big for this project – he trained and buffed himself and keep fit as he did all the stunts. 

My excitement is no comparable to the fans that also came to watch the screening; they were very passionate and supportive of their Korean idol, Lee Min Ho. That’s why the network executives recognized the support and the phenomenal reaction of the fans when ABS-CBN finally announced the acquisition of City Hunter by having a special preview as a treat for them.

ABS-CBN kicks off the year of the dragon with the much-awaited and biggest Korean drama “City Hunter” premiering this Monday (Jan 23) in Primetime Bida.

Taking the lead in this landmark Korean productions is Asian superstar Lee Min Ho who returns on Philippine primetime TV after his hit series “Boys Over Flowers,” and “Perfect Match” on ABS-CBN.

Playing as Min Ho’s leading lady is his rumored real-life girlfriend, Park Min Young.  The two reportedly fell in love while shooting the action-drama soap.

In the series, Min Ho plays the role of Johnny Lee, a charming and smarty young man who works at the Presidential residence called the Blue House.  Little did everyone know that behind his massive appeal to women, intelligence, and pleasing personality lies a son trained to kill and seek revenge for his father.  His mission is to make five politicians responsible for killing his father pay with their own lives.

Despite being a skilled assassin, the task wouldn’t be that easy for Johnny because he has to follow three rules on his mission – he can’t trust anyone, he can’t reveal his true identity, and he can’t fall in love.  All of these will be put to test when he meets Kim Na Na (Min Young), a body guard at the Blue House.  As Johnny unintentionally falls in love with Na Na, he must also choose which path to take.  Will he choose duty or love?

Don’t miss the premiere of “City Hunter” this Monday (Jan 23), after “Pinoy Big Brother Unlinight,” in the undisputed Primetime Bida of ABS-CBN.
