City Hunter which stars Lee Min Ho and Park Min Young will be broadcast on Japanese Fuji TV. The decision was made on January 30 and the drama will begin to air from February 6 to February 29. The drama will air for one hour and five times each week.
A Japanese broadcasting representative stated, “There is a lot of anticipation for City Hunter. The high quality of the drama has already been established, because the original manga is Japanese we believe that the moment it begins to air in Japan that Lee Min Ho will become a huge star.”
The representative continued, “Lee Min Ho is drastically changing with each drama he does. We believe that viewers who met Lee Min Ho through ‘Boys Over Flowers’ will fall for Lee Min Ho in ‘City Hunter.’”
Lee Min Ho’s agency stated, “After hearing about the news of a Japanese broadcasting of City Hunter, many other countries are giving love calls to Lee Min Ho. He is currently resting and figuring out what project to do next. Through essential promotions we plan on creating an event where he can greet fans of the drama series.”

A SBS TV series starring Korean actor Lee Min-ho will soon air in Japan, according to Lee’s agency Starhaus Entertainment on Tuesday.
A press release from Starhaus announced that Lee’s action drama “City Hunter” is slated to air five times a week through Japan’s Fuji TV from February 6 to 29.
“The viewers in Japan have high expectations for the show since it has received rave reviews when it first aired in Korea last year,” an official with Fuji was quoted as saying.
A rep from Starhaus said in the statement that they have gotten a number of offers from various countries overseas though Lee is currently taking a break from his activities.
“We hope to visit all the countries as soon as Lee decides on his next project.”
In “City Hunter,” Lee plays Lee Yoon-sung who vows to get revenge for his father’s death by starting to work at Korea’s presidential Blue House after receiving his doctorate from MIT and Park plays Kim Nana (played by actress Park Min-young), a judo athlete-turned-bodyguard, who works at the presidential office to protect Choi Da-hye, the youngest daughter of the President.
The show, based on the Japanese manga series by Tsukasa Hojo, is a collaboration by famed producer Jin Hyuk of hit dramas “Brilliant Legacy” and “Princess Prosecutor” and scenarist Hwang Eun-kyung of “New Hit” and “The President.”
The series, which aired in Korea for two months in May last year, was also sold to several other countries including the United States, Hong Kong, Thailand, Vietnam, Cambodia and Myanmar.

Gamja has a bath. Apparently he has grown a lot. It all ends at 4:00… I only want to clean the toilet … Gamja has pushed a towel laundry …
“I gave Gamja a bath. He must have gotten bigger since last time because it was already 4 O’clock when I finished…Oh No..I have to clean up and organize the bathroom and I also need to wash Gamja’s towels that I have not washed for a while….”
