Ohhh I love this drama. It's an absolute MUST-SEE. The best drama of summer 2011, or better the year. Lee Min Ho oppa really suits the strong hero type of role. He fought so beautifly, and I'm so jealous of Park Min Young unnie, she got to play his love. >.<
The drama was based on manga City Hunter wrote by Tsukasa Hojo.
Here is a link to the manga.
The plot of the manga is a bit different form the drama, but the concept is the same.
The story takes place in Seoul, 2011. Lee Yoon Sung is a talented MIT-graduate who works on the international communications team in the Blue House. He plans revenge on five politicians who caused his father's death with his surrogate father Lee Jin Pyo and eventually becomes a "City Hunter."
