“City Hunter” Lee Min Ho Fights With …SPOONS?!

In tonight’s episode of “City Hunter,” Lee Min Ho will show off his action skills as he officially starts his quest to bring down the “group of five.” The first and second episodes introduced the viewers to a strong multi-talented Lee Yoon Sung, who’s skilled in both martial arts and gunnery. However, SSD stated that Lee Yoon Sung will fight with a different unconventional tool in episode 3.

The filming took place on May 15th at a seafood restaurant in Seoul. Lee Min Ho sported an all-black look topped with a black hat to cover his face. Since his debut, Lee Min Ho has played various characters, ranging from the snobby yet naive Goo Jun Pyo to the clean freak, mistaken for gay, Jun Jin Ho in “Boys Before Flowers” (2009) and “Personal Taste” (2010) respectively. Despite “City Hunter” being his first action role, Lee Min Ho has been receiving praises for his vast improvement in acting and hard work.

For several months before filming for “City Hunter” even began, Lee Min Ho received formal martial arts training in Arnis and Kali, a class of Filipino martial arts that emphasize weapon-based, albeit spoon in this case, fighting.

In the scene for tonight’s episode, Lee Yoon Sung was weaponless; however, he was quick on his feet and grabbed a nearby spoon to attack his target. Actor Lee Min Ho also showed off his flexible and lean body as he flew over counters during the action sequence. Martial arts director Yang Gil Young stated, “Lee Min Ho’s at a disadvantage because of his height and long arms and legs. It’s harder to do various stunts, but he’s very light and quick on his feet. Additionally, his reactions fit the situation he’s shooting; and as a result, his action scenes do not take long to shoot.”

Lee Min Ho plays Lee Yoon Sung, a MIT PH. D. graduate who works in the Blue House National Communications Team to spy on the President and his advisors. His ultimate goal is to hunt down the “group of five” who were responsible for his biological father’s (Park Sang Min) unjust death.

“City Hunter” is a Wednesday-Thursday drama, and its third episode will be aired tonight, June 1st on SBS.

'시티헌터' 이민호, 우월한 기럭지-이기적인 사격 실력 '매혹'

[OSEN=윤가이 기자] ‘시티헌터’ 이민호가 마성(魔性)의 ‘헌터본능’을 본격 가동시킨다.

이민호는 오는 6월 1일 방송되는 SBS 새 수목극 ‘시티헌터’(작가 황은경/최수진, 연출 진혁, 제작사 SSD) 3회 분에서 일품 사격 솜씨를 선보이며 명사수 ‘백발백중 민호’의 면모를 발휘한다. 지난 25일 방송된 1회를 통해 선보인 적 있는 ‘100% 명중’ 기록에 이어 다시 한 번 여심을 설레게 할 조짐이다.

이민호는 지난 7일 파주 벽초지 수목원 안에 완벽하게 구성된 사격 세트장에서 ‘일품 간지’를 뽐내는 늠름한 모습을 드러냈다. 이민호는 극중 MIT 박사 출신 청와대 요원이 된 윤성(이민호)이 동료들과 함께 사격 훈련을 받게 되는 장면에서 실전을 방불케 하는 사격 솜씨를 뽐냈다.

이민호의 사격실력은 지난 1회 방송 때 아버지 진표(김상중) 앞에서 발휘됐던 바 있다. 당시 윤성은 아버지의 혹독한 훈련 방식 때문에 어린 시절부터 자신을 돌봐준 유모 무왕수린을 향해 총을 겨눠야 하는 가슴 아픈 경험을 했던 것.

하지만 이후 윤성은 친아버지 무열(박상민)과 관련된 진실을 알게 된 후 ‘시티헌터’로 거듭나게 되면서 이전과는 다른 윤성의 모습을 보이게 된다. 청와대 요원으로 변신했지만 마음속으로는 늘 ‘복수 프로젝트’를 꿈꾸고 있는 윤성이 이전보다 훨씬 늠름하고 완벽한 사격 솜씨를 발휘할 수밖에 없는 상황이다.

이날 촬영에서 이민호는 태국 촬영에서 보다 훨씬 더 업그레이드 된 사격 솜씨를 선보이며 제작진들을 감탄케 했다. 특히 이민호는 전문가들이 실제로 착용하는 안경과 의상을 갖춰 입어 더욱 실감나는 느낌을 전했다. 태국 촬영 전부터 틈틈이 전문가를 통해 명중 노하우를 전수받았던 이민호의 노력이 빛을 발한 것. 고도의 집중력을 발휘, 속사포를 발사하는 이민호는 복수의 중심 타깃인 ‘5인회’를 저격하는 듯 연신 진지한 표정으로 연기에 임했다.

제작진 관계자는 “이민호가 ‘시티헌터’로서 완벽한 능력을 가진 윤성을 완벽하게 표현해내고 있어 만족감이 크다”며 “비단 액션신에서 뿐만 아니라, 남다른 아픔과 상처를 가진 ‘시티헌터’로서 이민호가 가지고 있는 ‘무한 매력’이 회를 거듭할수록 무한대로 펼쳐질 것”이라고 전했다.

한편 첫 방송된 ‘시티헌터’는 이민호의 총천연색 매력이 빛을 발하며 시청자들을 ‘이민호의 늪’에 빠져들게 하고 있다. 이민호는 꾸밈없는 10대 연기부터 ‘시티헌터’로 성장하게 되는 20대까지 천진난만하면서도 야성미 넘치는, 때로는 능청거리면서도 카리스마 넘치는 다양한 면모를 물오른 연기력으로 소화하며 뜨거운 호응을 얻고 있다.

3회 부터는 청와대 국가지도통신망 요원이 된 윤성이 5인회를 향한 복수 프로젝트의 시작을 예고하고 나선 가운데 윤성과 나나(박민영)의 까칠 러브라인이 본격적으로 펼쳐질 예정. 거기에 남다른 정의파 검사 영주(이준혁), 철부지 대통령딸 구하라, ‘소름 카리스마’의 주역 김상중의 환상 호흡이 담겨질 예정이라 기대감을 더욱 높이고 있다.

시티헌터 김상중 “이민호, 뭐하나 빠지지 않고 잘해” 극찬

[서울신문NTN 손재은 기자] 배우 김상중이 후배 이민호에 대해 극찬했다.

김상중은 SBS 수목드라마스페셜 ‘시티헌터’(극본 황은경 최수진, 연출 진혁)에서 대통령 경호원 출신 시티헌터 윤성(이민호 분)을 길러낸 진표 역을 맡아 이민호와 호흡을 맞추고 있다.

김상중은 “시놉시스 상 양아버지인 내가 이민호를 시티헌터로 키운 걸로 설정되면서 이번에 같이 연기하게 되었다”며 “정말 열의가 대단한 후배라 그의 새로운 모습을 기대하셔도 좋을 것 같다”고 말했다.

이어 “태국에서도 그렇고 지금도 총 쏘는 장면과 뛰는 장면, 감정 연기 뭐하나 빠질 것 없이 정말 잘하더라. 아주 잘하고 있다”며 극찬을 아끼지 않았다.

김상중은 지난해 드라마 ‘인생은 아름다워’에서 로맨티스트의 모습을 선보였던 것과 달리 카리스마 넘치는 연기를 펼치고 있다. “이번에는 지난번과는 달리 터프한 모습을 보일 것이다. 2000년에 출연한 드라마 ‘경찰특공대’ 이후에 11년 만에 총을 쏘면서 뛰어다니고 눈에 힘주게 되었다”며 “할 만 하고 재미있다. 무엇보다 기존의 모습에서 다른 모습을 선보일 수 있게 된 것도 나로서는 행운이다”라고 털어놓았다.

특히 25일 첫 회 첫 장면인 아웅산 테러장면을 떠올리며 “당시 폭파 장면 촬영 당시 날씨도 좀 추웠는데 보조 출연자분들이 피범벅 분장도 해야 하고 많이 힘들었다”고 회상했다.

마지막으로 그는 “ ‘시티헌터’는 근래에 보기 드물게 내용 자체가 재미있는 드라마라 보시는 분들이 대리만족을 느낄 수 있는 이야기꺼리가 많다”며 “회를 거듭할수록 더욱 기대가 되는 작품”이라고 소개했다.

한편 김상중은 현재 SBS 시사프로그램인 ‘그것이 알고 싶다’의 MC로도 활동 중이다. “현재 ‘시티헌터’와 ‘그것이 알고 싶다’ 모두 다 잘 하고 싶다”며 “다행히 둘 다 같은 SBS에서 방영하고 있는 터라 서로 팀에서 스케줄 조정을 잘해준 덕분에 무리 없이 촬영중이다”라고 귀띔했다.

'시티헌터' 이민호, 천진함-야성미 이중 매력 '시청자 매료'

[OSEN=이정아 기자]SBS 새 수목드라마 ‘시티헌터’가 25일 첫 시작을 알렸다.

첫 방송부터 ‘시티헌터’는 시원시원한 액션 장면과 거침없는 전개로 숨 쉴 틈 없는 긴장감을 안겼다. 김상중, 박상민, 천호진, 김미숙 등 배우들의 열연도 이 드라마를 기대하게 만드는 부분이었다.

특히 주연을 맡은 이민호는 기존의 모습과는 또 다른 남성적인 매력과 함께 외로움이 느껴지는 매력적인 모습으로 안방극장 시청자들의 마음을 설레게 했다.

드라마 ‘꽃보다 남자’로 아시아 여심을 사로잡은 이민호는 ‘개인의 취향’에 이어 세 번째로 주연을 맡은 ‘시티헌터’로 다시 한 번 배우로서 자신의 가능성을 입증해 보일 기세다.

한국 사람을 만나 반가운 마음에 장난꾸러기 같은 모습으로 그를 구해주고 다양한 액션을 선보이는 이민호의 모습은 신선했다. 천진난만한 미소를 짓는 이민호의 모습은 자칫 무겁게 느껴질 수 있는 드라마의 분위기를 한층 밝게 만들었다.

이민호는 다양한 액션을 선보이기 위해 사격에 필리핀 실전 무술, 유도 연습을 하며 만반의 준비를 모두 마쳤다. 액션 연기를 선보이는 이민호에게서 전보다 훨씬 성숙해진 야성적 매력을 느낄 수 있을 것으로 보인다.

또 외로운 ‘시티헌터’로 나나(박민영)와 펼치게 될 달달한 러브라인도 기대를 모으게 하는 부분이다.

이민호가 첫 회에서 보여준 많은 가능성들을 드라마를 통해 찬찬히 풀어가며 시청자들의 기대에 부응할지 귀추가 주목된다.

이민호는 ‘시티헌터’에서 MIT 박사 출신 국가지도통신망 이윤성 역을 맡았다. 다재다능한 윤성을 소화하기 위해 그는 사격과 실전 무술, 유도까지 직접 연마하고 있는 것으로 전해졌다.

이날 촬영된 장면은 윤성(이민호)이 청와대 동료, 선배들과 유도 훈련을 마친 후 혼자 샤워를 하겠다고 해 시작됐다.

실제로는 전문가 못지않은 무술 실력을 갖추고 있는 윤성이지만, 이런저런 사정으로 동료에게는 운동신경이 전혀 없는 사람처럼 행동하고 있다. 이 때문에 온몸에 남아 있는 고된 훈련의 상처들을 들키면 안 되기 때문.

‘시티헌터’ 제작사 측은 “의욕적으로 연기에 임하고 있는 이민호의 빛나는 연기 투혼이 시청자들에게도 고스란히 전달될 것”이라고 전했다.

한편, 동명의 일본 인기 만화 ‘시티헌터’를 원작으로 한 이번 드라마는 80년대 도쿄를 배경으로 했던 원작과 다른 시대적, 공간적 변화가 생기게 되며 인물들 역시 한국적 캐릭터에 맞게 재설정된다.

주인공이 시티헌터로 성장하며 완성되어가는 과정, 진정성 있는 인간관계들을 통한 따뜻한 인간애, 많은 상처와 아픔에도 여전히 미래에 대한 희망을 품고 사는 사람들에게 작은 위로와 통쾌함을 줄 수 있는 내용 등이 담길 예정이다. 첫 방송은 25일 수요일 오후 9시 55분.

[뉴스엔 권수빈 기자]

이민호가 '시티헌터' 첫방송을 앞둔 소감을 전했다.

5월 25일 첫 방송되는 SBS 수목드라마 '시티헌터'(극본 황은경 최수진/연출 진혁)의 이민호가 드라마 첫방송을 앞두고 "이제 방송된다는 게 실감난다. 긴장도 되고 걱정도 된다"고 말했다.

이민호는 최근 진혁PD를 포함한 제작진과 함께 1회 방송분 편집본을 먼저 시사하면서 "같이 보신 분들께서 정말 재미있다고 말씀해주셔서 어느정도 자신감도 얻었다"며 "부디 재미있다고 평가해주신 분들이 옳았으면 좋겠다"고 밝혔다.

이어 "첫 방송 뒤 시청자분들의 반응이 어떨까 궁금해 밤잠을 설치기도 했다"며 "이번에도 역시 밤잠을 설치더라도 기분좋은 다음날을 맞이했으면 좋겠다"고 덧붙였다.

'시티헌터' 제작진은 "이민호씨의 동전 던지는 모습에 스태프들이 '방송을 앞두고 이제 동전이 던져졌다'고 표현했다”며 "긴장도 되지만 오히려 주위에 여유와 배려를 아끼지 않는 그야 말로 진정한 프로 연기자"라고 칭찬을 아끼지 않았다.

i love it when they ask Park Min Young's opinion for her kiss scene with Lee Min Ho...^^

Lee Min Ho of ‘City Hunter’ becomes the ‘Casa-Hunter!’

Actor Lee Min Ho shows his way how to attract women in City Hunter.

Lee Min Ho plays Lee Yoon Sung, a member of a Cheongwadae communications department with a Ph.D in MIT in the drama City Hunter. However, Lee was shooting a scene with another woman, Min Young Won, not Park Min Young or Goo Hara the major actresses.

Last April, Lee was seen with Min Young Won at a club for the shooting. The two was having a sweet date. Min sat next to him and was trying to seduce him with charming words and touches.

Lee, at this showed the perfect way to attract her. He would sometimes be nice and would be indifferent other times.

However, the reason why Lee was approaching her was part of a plan. Lee’s mysterious facial expressions will make the viewers be curious.

Min Young Won and Lee Min Ho has a special story as this is not the first time they act together. She appeared on Boys over Flowers and played one of the mean girls bulling the main player Geum Jan Di.

The two acted in a casual atmosphere and though the shooting may have been embarrassing, the two acted well as a pro.

Meanwhile, after four posters and teasers of City Hunter were released, many are looking forward to the drama. Even before the first episode was aired, it is on the top ten most-searched words. And the OST are also the hot issue.

Lee Min Ho - Park Min Young "Coffee Date" that looks like a CF

Actor Lee Min Ho and Park Min Young enjoy one "Coffee Date" that looks like a Coffee CF (Commercial Film).
In Seoul a few days ago, Lee Min Ho and Park Min Young was in Han River, special for their latest SBS Drama "City Hunter" (written by Hwang Eun Kyeong, directed by Jin Hyeok). They are taking scenes for "City Hunter" there.
The scene is about Lee Yoon Seong (Lee Min Ho) and Kim Na Na (Park Min Young) just play with water, and they dry their clothes by the sun there while enjoying coffee.
It should be uncomfortable to take scenes and drink coffee while the body is all wet, but Lee Min Ho and Park Min Young is working with spontaneity. Both Park Min Young and Lee Min Ho sit close to each other, enjoying the coffee and the simple sweet time with their bright smile. Their connection seems deep and close when they share ideas.
Above all, it's a luck that the sun shine brightly when they took the scene. The two actor's stunning appearance and the wonderful weather makes all of the crew drawn then they took the short scene.
Staff of "City Hunter" said " The scene of Lee Min Ho and Park Min Young's coffee date may be a beautiful scene, but we could catch a glimpse of CF (Commercial Film) there, performed in a warm image" and "There's a lot of words about the after-taste of the coffee at the scene, but still in a normal standard to be called a scene.."
'"City Hunter" is based on a Japanese Manga with the same name. The original manga is set at Tokyo on 1980, where it's changed to Seoul on 2011. "City Hunter" is telling us a story about a growing process of a hero, gaining his humanity side by his relationships with other humans, despite the hurt and pain he got. "City Hunter" would replace "49 Days" time slot and would start airing at 25th of May.

이민호-박민영, 달달한 커피데이트 ‘CF 속 한장면 같네’

[서울신문NTN 손재은 기자] 배우 이민호와 박민영이 한 편의 CF를 연상케 하는 커피 데이트를 즐겼다.
이민호와 박민영은 지난 3일 서울 여의도 한강공원에서 진행된 SBS 새 수목드라마스페셜 ‘시티헌터’(극본 황은경 최수진, 연출 진혁) 촬영에서 그 어느 때보다 평화로운 데이트 장면을 촬영했다.
이날 촬영은 이윤성(이민호 분)과 김나나(박민영 분)이 따사로운 햇살 아래 젖은 몸을 말리며 향긋한 커피를 마시는 장면.
두 사람은 물줄기를 그대로 맞아 젖은 몸이 다소 불편할 수도 있는 상황이었지만 젖은 모습 그대로 자연스러움을 담아 촬영에 임했다. 특히 박민영은 이민호에게 밝은 미소와 함께 커피를 건네며 나란히 앉아 달콤하면서도 소박한 시간을 보냈다. 두 사람은 말없이 허공을 응시하는 서로 다른 듯 깊은 생각들을 공유하며 한층 더 가까운 공감대를 형성하는 연기를 펼쳤다.
무엇보다 촬영 당일 화창한 날씨 덕분에 더욱 아름다운 영상으로 담겨졌다. 배우들의 눈부신 비주얼과 푸릇푸릇 환상적인 날씨가 어우러져 짧지만 강렬한 포스의 장면들이 연출됐다는 후문이다.
제작사 측은 “이민호와 박민영이 평범한 듯 커피를 마시는 장면이었지만 마치 아름다운 CF를 보는 듯 따뜻한 영상이 연출됐다”며 만족감을 드러냈다. 이어 “대사가 많지는 않았지만 깊은 여운을 남겼던 만큼 두 사람 사이에 중요한 교류가 이루어지는 장면이라고도 볼 수 있다”고 전했다.

‘시티헌터’는 일본 동명 만화를 원작으로 한 드라마. 1980년대 도쿄를 배경으로 했던 원작과 달리 2011년 서울로 배경을 바꾼다. 주인공이 시티헌터로 성장하며 완성되어가는 과정, 진정성 있는 인간관계들을 통한 따뜻한 인간애, 많은 상처와 아픔에도 불구하고 여전히 미래에 대한 희망을 품고 사는 사람들에게 작은 위로와 통쾌함을 줄 수 있는 내용 등이 담겨질 예정이다. ‘49일’ 바통을 이어받아 25일 첫 방송된다.

Lee Min Ho talks about idols in dramas at ‘City Hunter’ press conference

On May 17th, Lee Min Ho, Park Min Young, and KARA’s Goo Hara attended the press conference for SBS’s “City Hunter“.

During the event, Lee Min Ho expressed his honest opinion regarding his castmate Goo Hara. He said,

“Originally, I was very pessimistic when it came to idols stars and acting. Thanks to Goo Hara, many of my preconceptions have been shattered. When I was a rookie, there were many times in which my pride was hurt and I experienced many hardships. I didn’t like how it seemed that idol stars who made acting debuts had it easy and didn’t go through those experiences.

I didn’t like how everyone struggles through many auditions in order to obtain a small supporting role, but idol stars seem to obtain those roles easily.“

However, after meeting Goo Hara and 2AM’s Seulong on “Personal Taste“, Lee Min Ho’s prejudices have changed. He revealed, “Everyone becomes happy when Goo Hara arrives on set. It becomes brighter in an instant.”

On the other hand, actress Park Min Young spoke of her concerns about her acting transformation. She explained,

“This is a work that 9 out of 10 opposed. It is a strong work with actions scenes and a strong melodramatic nature. But because I have failed with a melodramatic work in the past, it was hard to take on this challenge. However, I do not worry about whether or not this work will be a big hit. I made my choice according to my heart’s prompting…

I think I get a more competitive mindset when I hear that things can’t do well. ‘City Hunter’ is a work I chose with a competitive mindset… I am practicing a lot for the acting scenes. It feels good to throw down the tall Lee Min Ho.“

Lastly, Goo Hara revealed her determination to take on criticisms regarding her acting openly. Goo Hara expresssed,

“I started after deciding to take on many criticisms. I always had an interest in acting and I wondered how I would start my acting career. I want to show that I’m going to openly take the inevitable criticisms and I’m going to work hard as I get scolded to show improvements.

When it come to taking criticisms, I will take them head on. I will try my best.“
