A dream team has come together for SBS’s new Wednesday/Thursday drama, “City Hunter“.
Screenwriter Hwang Eun Kyung, who wrote the script for the recent SBS drama, “Daemul“, will be joining “City Hunter”, which is scheduled to broadcast its first episode on May 25th.
Screenwriter Hwang wrote up to the 6th episode of “Daemul”, leading to the early increase in viewer ratings. She has received much love from the public for her medical drama, “New Heart“, and her political drama, “Daemul”. However, she was disappointed with having to leave in the middle of “Daemul”, and she is determined to express herself freely and show the public her full writing skills.
‘City Hunter’ is an original script based on the world-famous novel by Japan’s Tsukasa Hojo. Since it became public that Korea would be the first remake of this story into a drama, ‘City Hunter’ has been receiving worldwide attention.
Producer Jin Hyuk from ‘Brilliant Legacy‘ and ‘Prosecutor Princess‘, actor Lee Minho, and writer Hwang have come together to create what has become known as the “2011 Super Hot Dream Team”.
The publishing side of ‘City Hunter‘ confidently stated, “We have a lot of expectations for writer Hwang Eun Kyung, who has shown her talent through several previous projects. We believe that synergy will be demonstrated through the collaboration of producer Jin Hyuk, actor Lee Minho, and writer Hwang.”
‘City Hunter’ has switched the setting from Tokyo 1980 to Seoul 2011, and according to the original story structure, the protagonist becomes a city hunter and his character develops while resolving gratifying cases.
