With less than three weeks away from the premiere of City Hunter on SBS, right on schedule, the first teaser trailer has dropped. Y’all know I read City Hunter the manga, and I’ve been internally reconciling all the changes to the original story concept to this K-drama adaptation, so I figure I’m ready for anything CH wants to throw at me. After watching this teaser, I am simply speechless.
Really, I have nothing to say, because I am so freaking confused as to what I just watched. This is my face ———-> O_O Is CH a noirish thriller? Is CH an action rom-com? I have no clue. As for the aesthetics – Lee Min Ho is broody and hot, Park Min Young is cheerful and dewy, and the drama has Bad Guy-esque pretty visuals splashed all over it.
First City Hunter teaser trailer:
The Youtube video below has no audio, because this trailer uses a very famous American song, likely without proper authorization, so YT has muted it. For the trailer with the audio, cick here for the Youku link. Personally, I like the trailer better without the audio, which is so out of place that it increases the WTF factor for me.
