With the end of 49 Days means that SBS is ready to premiere City Hunter in it’s slot this week. The third and final trailer has been released, as well as the first MV and song from the OST. Both this trailer and the OST MV are the most sane and thematically coherent offering from the CH production I’ve seen. I think the closest vibe I’m getting from CH is to one of my fave K-dramas of all time Time Between Dog and Wolf.
Except where TBDAW was gritty and snappy, CH appears to be overdosing on the slow-no and circular camera rig. I don’t mind some twirly action, but I’m seeing so much of it just in the MV alone it already freaks me out. I worry this drama will be more style and no substance. Here’s to keeping an open mind and seeing how K-dramas attempt to pay homage to the classic that is City Hunter.
