An engaging, heart-pounding drama that takes you on a roller-coaster ride
24 May 2012 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I first heard about City Hunter well before it was to be aired. I had set it aside to watch, mainly because I'd recently become a fan of Lee Min Ho (main male lead) via his previous dramas. Unfortunately, it took me a whole year before I finally sat down and watched this truly amazing drama.

I was captured from the very first episode, where you witness the deaths of 20 Korean soldiers, betrayed by their own country. The musical score used to draw you into that whole scene is just...beautiful, and heart- breaking. It plays throughout the series, perfectly placed, perfectly timed.

I began to love each of the characters and watch them progress, some of them more than others. The relationship between Lee Yoon Sung and his father is one of the core aspects of the drama. I tell you now, if you have not seen this drama, go and watch it. You will not be disappointed. I felt that it got a solid ending that wrapped up all the loose ends in the plot, and even with the romance. It left me wanting a good way XD I would totally go for a second season, if the original cast remained :p

From the astounding musical cores, the lovable characters, and engaging plot, I highly recommend this drama.
