City Hunter (시티헌터) is a South Korean television drama series starring Lee Min Ho, Park Min Young, Lee Joon Hyuk, Hwang Sun Hee, Goo Hara and Lee Kwang Soo. It premiered on May 25, 2011 on SBS.

The story starts in 1983. The South Korean president and his delegates are visiting Burma (now Myanmar) when a bomb planted by North Korea explodes, killing some high ranking officials (but not the president), in an historical event called the Rangoon bombing. To strike back, five South Korean officials plan an underground operation to enter North Korea and kill North Korean agents. Unbeknownst to the South Korean president, Lee Jin-Pyo (Kim Sang Joong) and Park Moo-Yul (Park Sang Min) who work as bodyguards for the Blue House, organize a 20-men troop to execute the plan. However, as the operation was taking place, the five high-ranking officials change their minds, aborting the plan in order to avoid an international crisis if the mission were to be discovered. The major concern is that the United States will withdraw its nuclear protection if the mission is made public.
The operation is successful, but as the troops swim to the submarine which will take them back to South Korea, a sniper from the submarine shoot and kill all the troop members while they are in the water, except Lee Jin-Pyo. An already injured Park Moo-Yul uses his body to shield Jin-Pyo, thus saving his life. As the only survivor of the ambush, he swims back to South Korea alone. He finds out that there were five officials responsible for aborting the operation.
Promising to avenge his fallen comrades, including his brother Park Moo Yul, he snatches Moo-Yul's son and flees to the mountains of Thailand. There, he trains the child intensively in combat. After an attack on the village, confesses to the child, Lee Yoon Sung (Lee Min Ho), about his long-term plan for revenge.
Seven years later, Lee Yoon-Sung returns to South Korea to fulfill the plan for revenge. He enters the Blue House (presidential palace) as an IT expert under the National Communication Network Team. He is warned not to trust anyone and not to fall in love, as the people around him will be in danger.
At the Blue House, he meets bodyguard Kim Na Na (Park Min Young). The story of love and revenge begins.
