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.
