Pencil-pusher by day, crime-fighting vigilante by night, the City Hunter will keep you glued to the screen.
IN 1983, 21 South Korean special forces soldiers were sent to North Korea on a top secret mission. They completed their mission successfully, but were inexplicably executed by the same government who sent them on the mission.
The only survivor was Lee Jin Pyo, a bodyguard for the Blue House (the South Korean version of the United States’ White House). Burning with rage, he hatched an elaborate plan to bring down the five powerful men responsible for the betrayal.
He went through extreme lengths to ensure that his plans succeed: he kidnapped his mentor’s infant son from his grief-stricken mother. (His mentor was one of the 21 men killed.) He then brought the boy, whom he named Yoon Sung, to Thailand and trained him from a young age to be an efficient soldier. He then enriched himself through the drug trade in South-East Asia’s Golden Triangle.
It is now 2011, and the two are ready to launch their plan to bring down the “gang of five”. However, Jin Pyo warns Yoon Sung (Lee Min Ho) never to trust or love anyone lest he risks the lives of those who are close to him.
