Stills for action drama City Conquest
by | July 30, 2012 | 148 Comments

Principal photography is well underway for noir action manhwa adaptation City Conquest, though interestingly, the drama has yet to find a slot on the broadcast schedule, or a network to call home. The drama from Media Baek and PD Yang Yoon-ho of IRIS has begun shooting, in hopes of finding a home to air sometime this year. It’d be a scary thing to blow your budget on an action blockbuster without a guaranteed slot, but it seems they’re banking on the combined star power of leading man Kim Hyun-joong (Playful Kiss) and PD Yang.

Meanwhile the production has been shooting on location overseas, and remained pretty tight-lipped about the story. So far we know that Kim Hyun-joong is taking on numerous action sequences for the role of revenge-driven PI Baek Miru, in a pretty City Hunter-esque setup. Though in this story, the bad daddy is more of an outright baddie from the get-go. (To the hero, I mean–I’m pretty sure we all knew City Hunter’s Daddy was evil.) Kim Seung-woo has been cast to play the father who betrays the hero, and sets him on the path to vengeance.

Jung Yumi (Rooftop Prince) plays the heroine, Lee Dan-bi, a jewelry designer. Which… seems to have nothing to do with anything, based on the plot. Couldn’t she be a cop or a mobster or a code-cracker or even a jewelry thief? For her character’s sake, can we make her a designer for contraband knockoffs or a jewelry designer by day, diamond smuggler by night — something with a darker twist, to keep her interesting?

I hope for the production’s sake that it manages to secure a timeslot before having all its episodes in the can. In the live-shoot system, that’s a dramaland purgatory no one wants to go to. The action-packed City Conquest hopes to air sometime this year, TBD.

    hmm action drama, can’t wait!

    • 1.1 MsGB

      Is it just me or did anybody else almost did not recognize KHJ? Is it the hair? Or his face is just alittle bit sharper like he lost that last little bit of baby fat? Or something……

      • 1.1.1 maldita

        Recent plastic surgery probably. Dunno what exactly, but he had something done.

        • 1.1.1.1 gratisetamore

          FYI -he lost 7% fat through diet and training and besides HJ is already 26.There should be some muscles and body fat adjustments.Since you don’t know,I’m telling you that he is the very busy Hallyu star for his FM’s,CF’s,prromotion of new singe in Japan and also having showcases.

          But Girlfriday shoudn’t worry about the drama’s budget -Asian countries already bought the rights. The drama already earned money even without shooting a single scene. In fact,it might be a good idea to premiere this drama elsewhere. They just do it by habit and tradition to show it first in SK. KE is a progressive company, with their aggressive launching of KE stars in China who knows what they are planning. Japan has already schedule to show this drma is in a a local station.

          • 1.1.1.1.1 maldita

            Oh I know. I follow his activities. Sure, he’s losing weight and training and everything but that doesn’t change the fact that I think he had something done again.

        • 1.1.1.2 anya

          really?..well just because your idols got their jawline carved out, eyes slit up to look bigger ,cheeks sucked out ,nose done and walk around like they were born and came out having to look like that naturally when they really aren’t, does not mean that everyone out there is. maybe he got his nose done after he broke it but that is just about it,and his nose perfectly look good before he broke it ,if you even have seen his picture. and oh! your a** must be pretty jealous from all of that sh*t that is coming out from your mouth.

        • 1.1.1.3 mimi

          wow such a stupid comment, just because your idols take their plastic surgery like it was some kind of water like get their jaws shaved, widen their eyes until they no longer look like their parents son or daughter does not mean that everyone does so. so F*ck OFF!

  2. sotong ball

    not interested. anything with KHJ in it I’ll pass

    though i like kim seung woo. i’m gonna drop this one

    • 2.1 lenrasoon

      lol i agree i can’t watch this guy “acting”.

      • 2.1.1 ...

        i agree. though for the drama’s sake i hope he’s improved

    • 2.2 Joe

      to #2 and #2.1

      If you’d rather ditch that’s your prerogative.

    • 2.3 mimi

      funny cause you talk a lot for someone who doesn’t care. Stupid!

  3. eny

    most of action drama lack of story and good acting, even big budget drama, this drama looks like city hunter from the sinopsis, i only watch two episode of city hunter and i didn’t enjoy it so i think i’m not gonna watch it,the only action drama that i like is gaksital

    • 3.1 eee

      Oh please, don’t compare City Hunter with this. KHJ is no where near Lee min ho’s caliber.

  4. zsa

    can’t wait…I love JYM…him? Let’s see if he has improved…

  5. Jasmin

    I skip this one… Don’t like Jung Yumi!

  6. Christy

    I’ll be looking out for this. Love KHJ!!

    • 6.1 Steph

      Glad I’m not the only one who’s a fan. Loved him since WGM. He’s not the best actor, but he’s hardly the worst. Ima love him long time and hope he improves as much as Yoona has!

      • 6.1.1 mjfan

        I love him too since WGM , he is the funniest person EVER …….
        I hope he acts well this time …..

        • 6.1.1.1 vereelimee

          Plus that is one killer smile!

          • 6.1.1.1.1 pipit

            Ameeeeen! I still can’t get enough of his smiles no matter how often I see them. He’s one of the few actors with the greatest smiles ever grace the small screen.

            Will have a look at his one although I have no liking for the female lead. My love for Kim Hyung Jun is likely enough to overcome anything.

          • 6.1.1.1.2 zoe

            Did someone mention KHJ’s smile??? ^^
            He’s got one of best smiles…its so sweet, its like when u see it u go awwwwwww~

      • 6.1.2 alexandras

        DITTO!!!

      • 6.1.3 Po

        im being very objective here..but
        he really is one of the worst idol-actors. like, yoona-level of badness.

    • 6.2 christy

      i just did a double take going “i don’t remember commenting yet..” :)

      love KHJ too. :) thankfully, I saw PK first and then watched his eps of WGM at the same time I found BOF or I might not have!

      I’ll definitely give this a shot to see if his acting has improved and hope the lessons worked! So I do have some other reservations as well (the Lie to Me writer?!?) but not enough to keep this out of my queue!

  7. ditdut

    here’s hoping hyunjoong can be at least bearable.

  8. Briggy(@subin70)

    I cannot wait!!

  9. Mystisith

    What would I give for a (contemporary) good action drama? Just for that I will give it a try.

    • 9.1 blaumauss

      Me too!!!
      A drama with lot of actions like (parkour)chases, lot of martial art fights, hot evil girls, … hmmm maybe showerscenes… . That would be nice. IRIS was an action-drama which deserves that name – so I will give it a try too.

    • 9.2 meecheellee

      I knoooow. *Sighs* The casting and director have given me a lot of fluff dramas. Eye candy but no plot. But on a different note, I want to see KHJ improve, just a little bit, if that’s possible. Oppa, please learn how to act. Please.

      • 9.2.1 Ivoire

        Hi Meecheellee, I like how you are pleading. Let’s hope he has improved.

      • 9.2.2 minhoswife

        I’m with you! I hope he improves!! But regardless, I will watch him because I love and support him :D

      • 9.2.3 5stars4everas1

        Haha me too.. Hopefully this time they will leave out more image and put in more REAL acting n action. Really think they take a bit too much care of his image – hair, looks, bla bla.. in all his dramas. I mean, I love him alot too – he’s my ultimate bias but, this is after all a DRAMA, not a beauty contest :P

  10. 10 ishi

    Let’s hope he has improved his acting skills by a mile. He did improve a bit on PK compared to BBF so hoping he’s bearable now.

    • 10.1 ilikemangos

      lets hope he took acting classes in between PK till now.

      • 10.1.1 Cassandra

        I actually see facial expressions so I have a small seed of hope.

        • 10.1.1.1 iZzie :)

          Good for you. Me, I don’t have faith on a Man of Still.

    Boy grows up so fine. Wow. I can’t believe he’s the same boy with Boys Before Flowers’ Ji Hyo.

    I’m not his fan yet, but I might check this one and become one.

    Hmm… Bike and helmet… Does it means there is a chance we have an encore of the BOF’s scene where he answered the phone over the helmet??!!!! -.-‘

      I still can’t get over that!
      It’s not like he couldn’t put it on speakerphone, right?

      OMFG. I remember that! PUAHAHAHA. Wutttt. Lollllll. Apparently besides the fact that he has money and is good at everything, he also has exceptional hearing. Superman

        Well, it was one of the defining moments in Korean dramas, you know…It showed us the true power of flower boys!

    Admittedly, my mind is in the gutter because I like the dirty rough-and-tumble chemistry of the first picture rather than the Hallmark-smiley 2nd picture.

  14. 14 seriously wtf jin and now (really) big

    I think the networks might have the same question we do….is KHJ believable as anyone but himself? So far, much evidence to the contrary. :/

        • 15.1.1.1 True2u

          I was asking the same question. -_-

          I was wondering why they named it City Conquest, when LMH already did a drama called City Hunter?

          Does anyone want to take a wild guess of the next CITY?

    Can’t wait! I’m waiting to be surprise by this drama! ^^

    I’m just waiting for the crazy fangirls to start with the “Leave Kim Hyun-joong alone” posts. Shouldn’t take much longer…

    • 18.1 iZzie :)

      I’d say, “Leave the City alone!”

      • 18.1.1 Anonymus

        Pretty hard to defend something you haven’t even seen teaser from. At least with with Kim Hyun-Joong they can fangirl like crazy.

        No offense, but I think that it will suck pretty bad. At least in the acting department. I can’t imagine that he can improve, because he just has no talent to work with.

        • 18.1.1.1 iZzie :)

          LOL. I’m not defending the drama. I just feel sorry for the ‘City.’ The ‘City’ must be sooo tired of all these huntings and conquests.

          • 18.1.1.1.1 Anonymus

            LOL

          • 18.1.1.1.2 jomo

            Double LOL!

            Maybe the citizens need to reflect on why they are attracting all that evil…You know, karma and all.

          • 18.1.1.1.3 iZzie :)

            They’ve got to do something about the Han’s feng shui.

          • 18.1.1.1.4 oftheshore

            @jomo
            I think ‘the City’ is Gotham – it gets the hunters and conquerors it deserves…you get the drift. I’m still holding onto my idea of City Fashion, an haute couture drama (or comedy, depending on your taste) starring JGS as the tortured male model escaping the wrath of evil fashion designers.

          • 18.1.1.1.5 jomo

            @ots LOL
            Based on JGS’s red carpet fashion, I believe they caught him!

          • 18.1.1.1.6 iZzie :)

            @jomo
            ROFL. True that!

            I wonder what the next ‘City’ drama is gonna be about. And who would star. :D

          • 18.1.1.1.7 oftheshore

            @jomo: Just had to let you know that I nearly died laughing. Then again, if they caught him, we could have a drama about him trying to escape those evil designers!
            @IZzie: Well, it’s either JGS (see above), or Yoochun as the City Scholar. I would also take Kim Bum as a City Painter.

          • 18.1.1.1.8 iZzie :)

            @oftheshore
            Or all of them as City Flowers. Up to fight the flowershop cartel that’s holding the entire city’s special occasions hostage.

            re: City Fashion. Does it involve Hwang Ji An and the Fashion King?

          • 18.1.1.1.9 jomo

            @Iz and ots so funny!

            City Florists?
            or
            City Bakers
            They’re up at dawn beating up dough, and up all night beating up bad guys.

            Where’s YY?

          • 18.1.1.1.10 daniela

            What about the new drama “Shower City”to wash out all the bad and evil karma.

          • 18.1.1.1.11 iZzie :)

            @jomo
            LOL! Yeah! Where’s YY? We need her to spin the City into an even crazier place.

            @daniela
            What about City Carwash?
            It’s making me think about Wookie in a Carl’s Jr. ad.

          • 18.1.1.1.12 iZzie :)

            @jomo
            I still owe you that trevi fountain photo from *bows in shame* last year.

            Unfortunately, I haven’t found a photo of either Bae Yong Joon, Jung Yong Hwa or Kim Hyun Joong showering – yet (let me think of ways), but I’ve started working on it and instead used THT’s photo at the mo. So here’s the initial image while I work on the other three to include in this.

          • 18.1.1.1.13 True2u

            @ Iz, I wouldn’t mind City Fashion with Hwang Ji An ^^

          • 18.1.1.1.14 oftheshore

            @True2u,
            Having left the company, Ji An becomes a fierce masked vigilante who fights against social injustice, corrupt businessmen (and women) and fugly shoes. Tae Kang designs her shoes and costumes, and Ankle…is just being her cute self! <3

          • 18.1.1.1.15 True2u

            @ oftheshore, if i can just hug you right now!!!
            “Ji An becomes a fierce masked vigilante” < why? why are you doing this to me? <LOL!!!!!!!! masked? haahahahahaha, her slogan would have been, "Saving the world one shoe at a time."

    Thank you for the news!

  22. 22 TokyoDogz

    Why not pick other actors? But oh well ill give it a try. It would be a waste tho if the drama gonna fail. Cuz the motorbike the revenge thing and the action.. Me like. Tho they could make the girls charcter basdass too. Why is one always bad and the other pure? Well not always, but mostly it is.

  23. 23 Aya

    eww

  24. 24 DarknessEyes

    looking forward to this! I hope his acting skills have improved a bit tho lol

  25. 25 jomo

    I really want KHJ to have improved, and I really want him to beat expectations, but something evil in me wants this to turn into a Jin-like Snark fest and have Heads recap it.

    Although, prolly by the time Jin is finally done, Heads will roll into the sunset searching for a vacation from the snark.

    Can we just let her write nice things about good dramas?
    What?
    NEVER!

    • 25.1 iZzie :)

      If this one goes down the Jin path, I’mma watch it.

      And I’m gonna be watching out for Heads’ recaps too.

      This is going to be fun! :)

    • 25.2 danna

      you know i’d love that too…but i think one more such drama might crack Heads’ brain (or give her a brain fetus) and we need her to recap more stuff she (and us) will love

      • 26.2.1 Anonymus

        That isn’t just a simple nose job, there must have been done some other things to his face. I’m not an expert, but you can’t even recognize him on most new pictures. He’s 26 years old, a face can’t change like that by itself.

        Why fix something, when it wasn’t even broken to begin with?

        I was never really into him looks wise or anything other, but he appealed to his fans with his old look, so why change it so much? Does he really think that people wouldn’t notice?

      • 26.2.2 Audrey

    Jung Yumi and Kim Seung-woo are such PHENOMENAL actors that putting Kim Hyun-joong as the hero just seems wrong on so many fronts!

      Not to forget that Nam Goong Min is playing the second lead to KHJ!! blerghhhhh…..he was amazing in CYHMH!

    I’ll watch it for Nam Goong Min hehehehe =3

  29. 29 jomo

    I wonder what perpetual side kick actors like:
    Park Hyo Joon, (City Conquest; Harvest Villa; Lie to Me) or Shin Seung Hwan (I Do, I Do; Fashion King;Tree with Deep Roots, etc) or Kim Sang Ho (City Hunter, Sparkling, a million films)
    think about the hype surrounding the stars in their shows?
    They prolly more look to Lee Won Jong (in everything) who does 4 – 5 dramas a year, delivering a reliable, credible performance no matter what script is before them.

    • 29.1 iZzie :)

      talk about busy actors… isn’t Ahn Seok-Hwan everywhere? He’s like the staple kdrama Daddy. I wonder what he has to say about his superstar co-stars.

      If we’re going to do a six-degrees of separation chart of korean actors in dramas, Ahn Seok-Hwan would be the center of the web branching out to everyone.

      • 29.1.1 Mystisith

        Hubby the hub. *Run & hide in shame*…

  30. 30 lily

    ooh KHJ’s so hot in these stills, and the couple look good together. I can’t wait for this drama!

  31. 31 Cynthia

    HEY!
    Why so mean to my cyber-hubby?!
    Never mind. I get it, even if I disagree.

    I can’t even envision this not getting a time slot/network. It’s already been sold overseas for more than $10 million (USD) just with Hyun Joong’s name alone.

    As I mentioned in a prior post, I’m hoping that he’ll surprise his Negative Nellies by turning in a decent acting job. This time around, he’s motivated by taking on a role that he’s always said he’s wanted to do – bad-ass biker type in an action setting. Motivated enough to take both action and acting classes. I’m keeping my fingers crossed that his enthusiasm for the role will translate to the screen for a successful performance.

    I can also see Yumi being his love interest – light against the dark kind of thing. She can play sweet (1,000 Day Promise) and she’s a good actress.
    :)

    • 31.1 linda

      I heard that too. He is really taking serious on his acting and action classes. He had improved a lot on his vocal so I hope some improvement on his acting.

    • 31.2 Mar

      I’m with you, Cynthia. I hope Kim Hyun Joong is able to expand his skill set. I like the guy, he’s got something going on that made me pay attention. I think he needs to develop range- I feel the BOF and PK characters had that same keep it under wraps vibe, and he comes off different in music video “characters.” Then again I liked BOF and a lot of people don’t, and I liked him in that. BOF was like crack to me, even with all the goofy stuff and some of the continuity issues. My concern is that CC is supposed to be edgy and dark and so is the character…not really seeing that vibe in the still shots. And it is going to be compared to City Hunter, there is no avoiding that. A lot of the press stuff said KHJ was going for a edgier ‘image’ with his last 2 songs/MV, um, Heat and I forget the other one, but, that so didn’t happen. He needs to channel up what he had going on with Breakdown. I was like, whoa, is that Sunbae trying to be a bad boy, I like it, lol. I do not like Jung Yumi very much, but I’m open to see what happens. Anyway, after sucky badness of the BIG ending I am desperately waiting for something exciting happymaking fun to happen in dramaland so I’m looking forward to new shows.

      I’m just looking forward for this drama. I never understood all the bed appreciation of KHJ ‘s acting – maybe they never took in consideration the script and director’s indications and more – THEY NEVER LOOKED HIS EYES during acting. His eyes always said more than the lines.

        He just recites his lines, I wouldn’t call that acting. He has been like that constantly, you can’t blame the director/writer/viewer for that.

        And that his eyes speak to you I would call wishful thinking.

        “his eyes always said more than the lines”

        PWAHAHHHAHAHAHA…are you freaking kidding me???

        there is nothing there!!

        he has got the deadest expression ever when acting.
        all he does is squint his eyes a lot to appear he’s “emoting”.

        Your comment made me laugh so much.

        kdramalover-You are absolutely correct about his eyes speaking volumes. The scenes is BOF with Jan-Di on in the stairs come instantly into my mind.

    It would be good if KHJ’s acting improved, but anyway I’m in if the story is good. I care more for the plot in a drama. I would rather watch a well written drama with mediocre acting than one with good actors and a trainwreck of a story. Of course, the ideal would be for dramas to have good acting, writing AND direction, but doesn’t seem to come often.

    Here’s hoping this drama will get a slot and KHJ will learn how to have more than one expression.

      LOL at KHJ learning to have more than one expression. I love him but I totally agree with you!

    i have a bad feeling about this drama every time i hear about it and its not even KHJ really…..

  35. 35 Pat

    This can go so wrong in so many ways……….Not optimistic.

    Pleassssse make him a decent actor!! I wouldn’t be able to stand another bad acting Kim hyun Joong -_- chebal!
    But he’s freakin’ hot in these stills!!

    Remember when we were all like “what? why is she a veterinarian? that’s kinda random but okk..” but then found out she’s useful cuz she can treat city hunter’s injuries? Maybe jung yumi’s jewelry designer will be of some use…

    If one of the dramabeans recappers will recap this, I will give this a shot before really diving into watching the series.

    I’m not a huge fan of KHJ, actor-wise and singer-wise. I’m really hoping he’ll bring to the table some decent acting skills, I’ve seen PK and he did an okay job. I wasn’t cringing each time I saw him on the screen, so that was ok…?

    Thanks for the article!

    I can’t get over what Kim Hyun-joong did to his face. he used to be complete perfection. he was gorgeous imo but his face looks so damn odd to me. he went for gorgeous to just ok. so sad.

    No matter how well-directed or action-packed this drama will be, I’ll pass because Kim Hyun-joong is the leading man. I don’t think he’s fit for a revenge role when he’s just about one of the worst actors who can’t express his emotions well on screen.

  42. 42 whimsyful

    Hmmm, I’ve never seen Kim Hyun Joong in anything, and I like the premise and Jung Yumi and Kim Seung woo…but it’s the writer from Lie to Me UGHHHHH

  43. 43 Me

    Awesome! Another great looking like drama to look forward to! :)

  44. 44 Notoriousnoona

    City Hunter Daddy was not evil.

  45. 45 dulcedeleche

    Javabeans…..does KHJ have a PERM? ;)

  46. 46 canxi

    I’m hoping his acting improved. He’s not playing a stoic, anti-social high schooler with personality issues anymore so I’m gonna see how he acts as a normal person with not so normal vigilante hobbies? I dunno.

  47. 47 MeeisLee

    Taking on numerous action sequences, huh? Don’t break your nose again Kim Hyun Joong but I suppose if you’re in another drama you can take advantage of recession prices :).

    I joke. Mostly. But anyway, I’m not going to completely write this one off because I’m not a fan of his acting. I didn’t mind Jung Yumi in Rooftop Prince. So we’ll see. I’m digging action-y shows these days and IRIS was entertaining enough. But it was painful getting through Lie To Me towards the end. Maybe the writer is better at action dramas than rom-coms?

    I suppose if there’s a lot of explosions and other noise-y stuff then it will distract me from any plot holes… for a bit.

    • 47.1 Anonymus

      Oh dear god, the writer is the one from Lie To Me?

      Just lost all hope for it. The drama will lose a solid plot after a few episodes and the director will fill the blanks with explosions. :(

    KHJ is my prince charming..nuff said..xoxo

    Kim Hyun Joong, in the first pic, why in a fight all dirty but still so pretty huh?

    If he stepped up his “acting” since PK then I will give it a chance. Geesh he makes me cringe when he “acts”.
    But I do like Jung Yumi. She made me hate her character that I started liking the actress. :D So I may watch.
