100억의 사나이 이민호

'시티헌터' 광고 완판… 'CF킹' 복귀 눈앞

배우 이민호가 또 다시 괴력을 발휘했다.

이민호가 주연을 맡은 SBS 수목 미니시리즈 <시티헌터>(극본 황은경ㆍ연출 진혁)는 7월28일 종방까지 20회 분량의 광고를 모두 판매했다. 80분 분량인 <시티헌터>는 회당 4억2,240만원 상당의 광고를 팔 수 있다. 20회까지 광고 완판을 기록해 84억 4,800만원의 수익을 냈다는 계산이 가능하다.

<시티헌터>는 재방송 광고 수익률 또한 높았다. 주말 재방송 역시 두자릿수 시청률을 기록하며 광고 판매 호조를 보여 20억원 안팎의 판매 수익을 거뒀다. 본방송과 재방송 광고 판매 총액은 100억원이 넘었다. 한국방송광고공사 관계자는 "이민호가 출연한다는 사실 때문에 방송 초반부터 광고주들의 반응이 좋았다. 중반부부터는 동시간대 시청률 1위를 차지하며 결국 광고완판을 기록했다"고 밝혔다.

이민호는 지상파 3사에서 각기 다른 드라마와 광고 완판을 달성하며 '지상파 3사 올킬'을 달성했다. 그를 스타덤에 올려 놓은 KBS 2TV <꽃보다 남자>는 방송 초반부터 신드롬에 가까운 인기를 얻으며 연장 분량까지 모든 광고를 팔아 치웠다. 지난해 방송된 MBC <개인의 취향>도 16부작 광고 완판으로 60억원이 넘는 수익을 냈다. <시티헌터>까지 포함하면 3연타석 홈런을 날린 셈이다.

이민호는 <시티헌터> 출연 이후 현대자동차, 아이더를 비롯해 각종 업체들의 잇따른 CF러브콜을 받으며 'CF킹' 복귀도 눈 앞에 뒀다.

[Spoiler: City Hunter] The producer of ‘City Hunter’ clarifies the ending

On July 28th, SBS’s popular drama, ‘City Hunter‘ came to a close.

With the finale, the ending attracted much attention with controversial comments from viewers. The foster father of ‘Lee Yoon Sung‘ (played by Lee Min Ho), Lee Jin Pyo (played by Kim Sang Joong), was hit by a flurry of shots and ended up dead.

Even though at the end, Yoon Sung and ‘Na Na‘ (played by Park Min Young) were reunited in a happy ending, but some viewers were left to believe that Yoon Sung was actually a ghostly figure. However, the producer, Kim Yong Sup, stated to TVDaily on July 29th, “Yoon Sung is not dead“.

Kim Yong Sup elaborated, “Lee Yoon Sung (Lee Min Ho) sustained a bullet shot in the last episode, but after much time passes, he eventually meets Kim Na Na. He doesn’t appear as a ghost as it was actually just a time jump that we had set up. Of course, I respect the arbitrary interpretation of the viewers. However, just the fact that Yoon Sung didn’t die is strictly speaking, the definition of a happy ending. The director and writer put in the scene with this as their mindset.”

However, the last episodes of ‘City Hunter’ still resulted in the deaths of prosecutor ‘Kim Young Joo‘ (played by Lee Jun Hyuk) and Jin Pyo. Yoon Sung was injured by Jin Pyo’s bullet but recovered as time went by.

종영 '시티헌터', 이민호에 의한 이민호를 위한 이민호의 드라마

[마이데일리 = 강선애 기자]SBS 수목극 ‘시티헌터’(극본 황은경, 최수진/연출 진혁)가 김상중이 죽고 이민호와 박민영이 재회하는 장면으로 절반의 해피엔딩을 맞았다.

28일 밤 방송된 ‘시티헌터’ 마지막회에서 그동안 잔인하도록 냉혈한 모습을 보여 온 진표(김상중 분)가 윤성(이민호 분) 대신 ‘시티헌터’를 자청하며 ‘총알받이’가 되는 비극적 최후를 맞이했다. 피비린내 나는 복수를 감행하며 극한의 대립을 펼치기도 했던 진표와 윤성은 최후의 순간에 서로의 손을 부여잡으며 극적인 화해를 하게 됐다.

그런가하면 나나(박민영 분)는 식물인간으로 병상에 누워있던 아버지를 여의고 청와대 경호원 일을 그만둔 채 윤성을 기다리던 중 윤성과 재회하게 됐다. 윤성과 나나가 극적인 재회로 행복한 결말을 맞이하는 장면이 ‘시티헌터’의 대미를 장식했다.

‘시티헌터’는 제목에서 알 수 있든 주인공 ‘시티헌터’가 원톱 주인공으로 드라마를 이끌었다. 총 20회 드라마 전반에 걸친 복수, 멜로 등의 모든 스토리에 주인공 이윤성이 있었고, 이런 ‘시티헌터’ 이윤성을 연기한 이민호는 이번 작품을 통해 괄목할만한 성장을 이루며 시청자들의 뜨거운 지지를 얻어냈다.

이민호가 선보인 현란한 액션과 강렬한 눈빛 연기, 섬세한 감정 연기는 기존의 출연 작품에서는 볼 수 없었던 놀라운 변신이었다. 그는 이번 ‘시티헌터’를 통해 드라마 ‘꽃보다 남자’, ‘개인의 취향’ 등에서 보여온 멜로 드라마에 어울리는 잘생긴 꽃미남 배우의 이미지에서 벗어나 남성미 강한 액션배우로 거듭났다.

이민호는 ‘시티헌터’ 기획 단계부터 염두해 둔 캐스팅이었다. 따라서 일찍이 ‘시티헌터’로 캐스팅 된 이민호는 오랜 시간동안 작품을 위해 만반의 준비를 거듭했다. 그리고 촬영이 시작된 이후부터 마지막 촬영까지 초심을 잃지 않는 성실한 태도를 보여 제작진들에게 큰 반향을 불러일으켰고, 이는 시청자들의 지지로 이어졌다.

이민호는 이제 꽃피운 연기 인생에 있어 자신의 이름을 내 걸고, 또 그만큼의 인기를 얻은 ‘시티헌터’가 그의 배우 인생의 획을 긋는 중요한 작품이 된 것만은 확실하다.

시티헌터 이민호, 유승호 제치고 ‘우유남’ 1위 차지 그 이유는?
우월한 유전자를 가진 남자를 뜻하는 '우유남'이 신조어로 뜨오르고 있다.

이런 가운데 최근 ‘우유남’의 대표적인 연예인으로는 이민호, 유승호, 박유천, 정겨운이 꼽힌다. 이들은 최근 유행하는 드라마를 통해 주목받고 있는데, 드라마 속 캐릭터를 완벽히 소화해내며 대중들의 드라마 몰입도를 높였기 때문이다.

그렇다면 이들 중에서도 진정한 우유남은 누구일까?

원진성형외과는 지난 11일부터 17일까지 일주일간 홈페이지를 통해 총 1428명을 대상으로 ‘우월한 유전자를 가진 남자 우유남은 누구?’ 라는 주제로 설문조사를 실시한 결과 요즘 드라마 ‘시티헌터’로 인기를 얻고 있는 배우 이민호가 1위를 차지했다.

‘시티헌터’의 이민호가 480표(33.6%)를 얻어 1위로 뽑힌데 이어 누나 팬들의 사랑을 독차지 하고 있는 배우 유승호가 478표(33.5%)로 2위, ‘미스 리플리’의 박유천이 362표(25.4%)로 3위, ‘로맨스 타운’의 정겨운이 108표(7.6%)로 4위를 각각 차지했다.

이번 설문조사는 원진성형외과에 따르면 실제로 많은 여성들이 좋아하는 남성의 외향적인 요소는 훤칠한 키와 부드러운 인상, 작은 얼굴과 뚜렷한 이목구비라 한다.

원진성형외과 박원진 원장은 “최근 인기를 끄는 남성 스타일인 훤칠한 키와 연하고 부드러운 인상의 외모, 천진난만하고 귀여운 느낌을 주는 스타일에 이민호가 매우 적합하다”며 “최근 드라마에서 보이는 이민호의 이미지는 우월한 유전자를 가진 남자를 뜻하는 ‘우유남’이라는 별명에 매우 적합하다”고 전했다.

또 2위를 차지한 유승호는 ‘폭풍성장’이라는 별명을 받을 정도로 어린아이의 면모를 벗어던지고, 멋진 남자로 성장했다. 영화 ‘집으로’에서 할머니에게 대들던 꼬마 배우였던 유승호는 누나들의 사랑을 한 몸에 받는 국민 남동생을 거쳐 현재는 남성미 물씬 풍기는 남자 배우로 거듭났다.

박원진 원장은 “유승호 씨는 과거 귀여운 외모와 기성배우 못지않은 연기력으로 대중들의 눈길을 사로잡았다면, 최근에는 모범생같은 반듯한 이미지의 얼굴형과 날카로우면서도 우수에 찬 눈빛, 오똑한 콧날의 조화로 많은 여성들의 마음을 사로잡고 있다”고 말했다.

많은 여성들은 우유남을 전형적인 미남형의 남자 연예인 보다는 다양한 모습과 이미지를 가진 남자연예인을 선호하는 것을 알 수 있다. 박원장은 “이민호나 유승호의 경우, 터프함과 부드러움 그리고 귀여움까지 고루 갖춘 남성들로, 갸름하고 부드러운 턱선과, 뚜렷한 이목구비, 구릿빛 피부가 특징적이다”고 설명했다.

드라마를 통한 신조어들이 생겨나고 있다. 드라마 ‘시티헌터’와 ‘무사 백동수’를 보며 새로운 신조어를 개발해 보는 것도 색다른 재미가 될 것으로 보인다.

Lee Min Ho is the god of action ‘Anticipations arise’

Lee Min Ho of SBS’s Cityhunter shows off his wild actions.

According to the production company SSD, Lee Min Ho will be showing wild actions in a junkyard on the 19th episode.

Lee Min Ho filmed the action scene in a junkyard in Kyeong Ki Province on the 24th. Lee Min Ho fought against eight enemies doing extremely dangerous jumps without a stunt double.

The shooting didn’t go well because there were puddles all over the junkyard due to heavy rain the day before. Lee Min Ho almost slipped a couple of times, and couldn’t help but get some minor injuries.

Nevertheless, the rumors say that he successfully filmed the scene despite the poor conditions without making that many NGs.

The production crew said, “Lee Min Ho’s height could have been an hindrance for wild actions, but he overcame that with his quick reflexes, speed and agility. This action scene is the culmination of all his fancy actions.”

City Hunter which is to end on the 28th, has a shocking development left about Eung Chan being Yun Seong’s biological father.

City Hunter making films 27.07.2011

Tuesday, July 26, 2011


City Hunter Lee Min Ho is well known and identical with Trugen, a men wear brand of Korea.

The latest popular drama in Korea, that is City Hunter, is oftenly using Trugen store as their shooting location. Lee Min Ho is also wearing the wardrobe from Trugen for this drama. It seems Trugen is become a sponsorship of this drama.

Trugen was released on 16 years ago. Seems Trugen is like ‘an old store who sell an old stuffs too’. But we can’t prove this statement because in fact Trugen is still up-to-date with its stuff from year to year. Cho In Seong had been used for Trugen Brand Ambassador until being changed with Lee Min Ho. But with using those two actors as a brand ambassador, Trugen reaches their popularity and succeed.

Now let’s meet the Vice President of Trugent who will share with us about his business on Trugen and how to develop Trugen until become a big brand like now on.

1. An old brand is usually has their own difficulties to make their stuffs is still interesting until the newest era. How is your opinion about this ?

- Well yeah, actually Trugen’s loyal customers are men whose age is between 25 – 35 years old. But in fact, men with age 20 years old and 40 years has an interested to wear Trugen collection. Trugen was renovated three years ago and then Trugen used Mr. Cho In Sung to become a brand Ambassador of Trugen.

While Mr. Cho In Sung were still on military service, so we used Mr. Lee Min Ho as the newest brand ambassador who at that time ( 2009 ) still did Boys Over Flowers drama shoot. While that drama shoot, Mr. Lee Min Ho was still a temporary one. But after the drama was done, he became the official brand ambassador of Trugen.

It’s impossible that every year to year, someone doesn’t have any changes or willingness to change for themselves. In Spring 2009, the fashion was a cloth that have a classy and smooth thing. In these current years, the sales are more than the target.

2. Trugen is marked as a men wear brand that always use the best model for its advertising and the stuff is always up-to-date. How do you say about this ?

Mr. Lee Min Ho took over Mr. Cho In Sung‘s task as a brand ambassador because of his military service. But with the full support from Mr. Lee Min Ho to Trugen, so we can broadcast the ads to the TV.

Of course we have to use the best one. Mr. Lee Min Ho has a great selling point. And the quality and the standard of his fashion is great. So I think he is the ideal one to become Trugen model.

Besides that, I also search for the customer response. And we also get some opinion about the newest man fashion icon. I am so appreciated and thanked for that. When I went to Lotte Department Store. the classy and serious style is still up-to-date.

3. Another difficulty is to find the suitable style for a professional man. As an intermezzo, from the middle until the end of 1990, the brand character in the market was worse. It was looked from the sale of the stuffs, product planning, etc. How is your opinion about the market condition at that time ?

Actually at that time, a men wear store included to a big store. But after the experience of the brand market bankruptcy on 1990s, it was a difficult problem to solve. I am now talking about the different brand beside Trugen, like New Thirty. People said that it was important to have a cloth that had a luxurious sense on it. To reach sale target 600 billion was to slow if we compare it with the sale target on the previous spring session which was 20 % better. So, at that time I just didn’t expect too much to get the perfect goal one.

4. Do you want to make a new brand besides Trugen ? In your opinion, what is the important brand business unit as a manager ?

As a Trugen hope, we hope that this men wear brand can survive for the next 30 years and also grown together with our consumers. our staffs’ dedications are so big, even bigger! The starting fee of manager division is depending on the team. QR system is also being applied into the product unit to know about the reaction from the consumers about the store.

With a great strategy of business, we can get good and hilarious result. In Trugen, I work with many people and face the problems happen together. But with releasing female wear brand, F1, I think Trugen and F1 can be succeed on their own fields and become the most popular brands. We hope in 2015, we can get a chance to reach 150 billion.

일본 팬 미팅이 끝나면 아시아 여러 국가도 찾아갈 예정이다. 팬 미팅이나 드라마 프로모션 등 행사 형식과 일정은 구체적으로 정해지지 않았다.
