Lee Min-ho’s other romantic loveline in City Hunter

Another actress joins the cast of City Hunter, relative rookie Hwang Sun-hee, who recently had a memorable turn as a baddie in the forensic-crime series Sign playing a pivotal character, Kang Seo-yeon.

Hwang Sun-hee plays a veterinarian who has a clinic near the Blue House where our two leads (Lee Min-ho, Park Min-young) work, Lee as an MIT-educated communications guy, Park as a bodyguard. Hwang’s innocent appearance contrasts with her cold speech and haughty manner. On the other hand, she’s a softy for animals and often takes in stray mutts, working hard to get them adopted to forever homes.

She meets Lee Min-ho by chance when he comes by her veterinary clinic, and they end up helping each other out in dangerous situations (yes, plural, apparently), which brings them closer as friends. And most assuredly messes with the main romantic pairing for a while, we can anticipate.

Because we can never have a drama where the leads aren’t linked together in a complicated web of past and present emotional baggage, she is the woman who comforts Lee Min-ho’s pain, while also being hotshot prosecutor and rival Lee Jun-hyuk’s first love. (Now all she needs is to be Park Min-young’s old childhood frenemy to round out this cliche-o-meter. Better still if she’s a long-lost twin, or her switched-at-birth counterpart.)

At 24, she also brings the average age of the cast squarely into the mid-twenties, which, okay. I get that they’re going for the younger crowd, what with the casting of Lee Min-ho, Park Min-young, and idol singer Gu Hara. It might not be a bad thing, but it just seems very young to me, like we’ll be watching kids playing adults. Let’s hope it works.

Lee Jun-hyuk, meanwhile, has been busy getting in shape for the role — although why an elite prosecutor needs daily training in boxing, kendo, and hapkido, I have no clue. We’re not going to have him act as pseudo-bodyguard or anything like that, are we? That would be as baffling as watching Ryu Shi-won in Style, playing a celebrity macrobiotic chef who suddenly develops an interest in fashion magazines. Stick to one, dude. No wonder Ryu was confused about his character.

City Hunter is planned for a May 25 premiere on SBS, following 49 Days.

Just to refresh your memories, here’s your City Hunter cast:


Lee Min-ho


Park Min-young


Lee Jun-hyuk


Gu Hara

Maybe Lee Jun Hyuk will have a shower scene. Or a pool scene. That might be why he needs to work out that much: to show the world his hot-bod. :D

OH LAWD. I HATED her in Sign...just couldn't get any emotions from the girl. I mean she's supposed to be this deranged killer but she ALWAYS had a smirk on her face!!

really? i think she is the one reason i may tune in to one episode or two of City Hunter! i hated her so much in sign because she was so good in her character - frustratingly evil!! i wanted to be her psychologist and get into her mind!

though she's being an innocent-looking-cold-hearted woman again, i hope she can bring a different life to this role.

I understand that she was evil but she had the same look the whooooooole time. Secretary kims character was more convincing to me as a killer than her....maybe it really was her character but I'm not getting my hopes up.

I'm still going to watch it cos my baby Lee Min ho is in it!

Lee Jun Hyuk in physical training to play a prosecutor... Obviously because he's going to be personally chasing baddies, single-handedly mounting sting operations, obtaining incriminating evidence with his own hands (if not entrapping), conducting autopsies, generally taking the law into his own hands and systematically flouting every rule of proper criminal procedure. Oh K-drama land and your fanciful notions of what a lawyer does, never change!

I don't know - her role sure isn't breaking any new ground, is it? I feel like I can already predict half the plot of this drama. Hopefully the actors can bring some spark; I'm watching for Lee Min Ho in particular.

When I got into kdramas, I wondered the same thing. Always with the love-square. Then when I realised its the 'norm', I've grudgingly come to accept it while I wait to be surprised by an actual deviation.

At first I thought she was Moon Chae Won and I was about to jump for joy when I clicked the article and saw that it wasn't her. aww....

Anyway, this is still Lee Min Ho (and Lee Jong Hyuk), so this show would be on my list until I'm free over the summer and I can watch this.

Ugh, her character in sign annoyed me to death what with smiling so creepily and being all smug that she's gonna win, she wasn't even that devastated when they caught her at the end which did not satisfy me. In other words, I hope I'll like her more in city hunter but I rarely like second female leads.

I will always support Lee Min Ho as an actor as I observed from his past dramas that he is one who really immersed 100% into his roles and tries his best to bring out the characters he is portraying in his dramas realistically. Drama directors, colleagues, friends and his world-wide fans praise him for his dedication and commitment to his work. He also said that he must not disappoint viewers, especially his loving fans, and therefore is determined to be a hardworking actor. I wish "City Hunter" every success and hope that with such a great cast it will become the hit drama for 2011 in Asia and other countries.

Why do they insist on calling this City Hunter because it is nothing like City Hunter at all.
why on earth by the rights to the story when you are not basing it even loosely on the manga ?

I have been keeping track of "City Hunter" cast and to be honest, I think they are pretty young, they should have mixed in some older more xperience actors...just to balanced things out.
Like many fans here, I'll give this drama a chance ONLY cause i'm a LMH FAN!..cause really the premise and story line are not very original since basically the only thing the production is borrowing from the Manga its the title "City Hunter".
This drama needs a name change to "Blue House Hunter"....cause I don't see LMH character hunting in the city much.....

The title "City Hunter" is a very famous an popular japanese manga series about a private detective Ryo Saeba and his lady partner Kaori. And this drama was suppose to be based on it hence the title, but because it's nothing like the original story people are complaining why are they keeping that title instead of renaming it.

They definitely could have balanced the cast with more experienced actresses. There are many beautiful older experienced actresses who also look young. Then it is more believable. Nevertheless I am looking forward to LMH acting.

I remember worrying that there was too much pretty and not enough weight in SKKS. And the prettiest ones managed to pull me in.

So, maybe, all these pretty folks will deliver performances that are nuanced, edgy, with some darkness...

LMH, if given the right script, could definitly go dark and intense. God, I love him!

I think it is time for Battle of Delisional Hopes: Part Deux
