Hi, I am back! I wasn’t able to blog during my little break. I was supposed to do something productive but I decided to have a series marathon with the siblings instead.

We watched City Hunter last Friday and we finished it last night. It’s a 20-episode Korean TV series. It’s dubbed here in our country but since it’s aired late (I think), I couldn’t catch it! And besides, I know there will be a lot of deleted scenes. So I decided to borrow a workmate’s copy of the series and transferred it to my hard disk.
I got curious with the series when I caught a glimpse of an episode (which turns out to be from Episode 3 of the TV series) where Yoon Sung (Lee Min Ho’s character) was held by two guys but he managed to escape! Then as he was about to leave the scene of the crime a.k.a THE KITCHEN, an evil pseudo-chef came charging with a knife! He defeated this big guy with his really badass fighting moves using only a spoon as his weapon. Heehee.
Anyway, the series revolved around getting revenge but eventually going down to the question: “How are you going to do it?”. I guess Yoon Sung’s way of getting revenge by exposing the corrupt side of the officials involved is way better than having them killed which is his father’s method (Lee Jin Pyo), by the way. I loved how they planned on tracking these officials, on how they acquired the evidences, the really badass fight scenes and the gadgets they use! Haha. I couldn’t handle the suspense when they’re about to be caught. My sister and I would cover our faces with our pillows but our brother was watching intently! Even if at the back of my mind, I know that they wouldn’t be caught, I couldn’t help but scream a little. Yep, a little. XD
I adore the houses used by Yoon Sung and Jin Pyo in the series. Yoon Sung’s minimalistic and modern house is to die for but Jin Pyo’s glass house is also amazing. I’m torn. But I still love Ji-eun’s glass house from Full House – because it’s near a beach, heh. :3
There were a number of funny times while watching because my sibs and I would just blurt out local celebs that the Korean actors/actresses look like. We were also not into the Yoon Sung-Na Na love story. We would fast-forward some Yoon Sung-Na Na non-speaking scenes just to get over with it. We’re more into the Sae Hee-Young Joo love story because we find this couple more interesting. Also – almost every character in the series was using an iPhone! From the goons to the higher ups – they’re all on iPhone.
And lastly, I find the ending rushed. I don’t like rushed endings. *coughsMockingjaycoughs* I want my endings memorable/unforgettable! But I guess it’s just me. I still loved the last episode, though! Overall, I find the series interesting so I would recommend it if you haven’t watched it yet. *u*
