KPOP fanatics will definitely be glued on Monday because Lee Min Ho is back in ABS-CBN with City Hunter. It was hard to not notice how Filipinos have fallen in love with Lee Min Ho last Friday at the special screening of City Hunter in Dolphy Theater.
We have loved him playing "Jun Pyo" in Boys Over Flowers in 2009 and he's back with the newest Primetime Bida of ABS-CBN in City Hunter. Min Ho will play the role of Johnny Lee, a charming and smart young man who works at the Presidential residence called the Blue House. Park Min Young, his rumored girlfriend will be his leading lady (playing as Kim Na Na) in this new action-drama starting on Monday at ABS-CBN. Fans of Lee Min Ho and KPOP supporters were present during the screening roaring the Dolphy Theater with screams although Lee Min Ho is busy with commitments in Korea.
The appreciation on the story of Johnny Lee who became a skilled assassin by fate will definitely be different as compared to the pirated DVDs locals have watched because of ABS-CBN In-house dubbing. The Filipino translation will definitely captivate more of my students and teens-alike to be glued late at night after "Pinoy Big Brother Unlinight". I have always prescribed the Filipino dubbing rather than those erratic English translation in pirated DVDs which confuse the youth of proper grammar and syntax.
It's still a prescribed drama because like all the other Korean telenovelas which does not show gore and violence, City Hunter will make viewers appreciate the martial arts discipline of Koreans, the commitment of Korean actors to create conflicts without adapting from the Hollywood blockbusters and the creativity of production design the youth today may consider as their memorable interpretation of unconditional love often imbibed in Korean drama. ABS-CBN Acquisitions Head also announced exciting Korean dramas lined up for the year 2012 including the famous Sailor Moon (8AM) and Naruto Shippuden 4 (8:30AM) only in the new Team of Animazing of ABS-CBN starting Monday.
I'm also so excited to watch "Sungkyungkwan Scandal" which gained popularity outside Korea soon to be shown in Kapamilya.
