[Spoiler] "City Hunter" episode 19 : R.I.P Prosecutor Kim Yeong-Joo ??

2011/07/29 | 6478 views | Permalink


Bonjour, "City Hunter" Fans! After waiting for days that seem like ages, it finally comes the "City Hunter" episode 19. Yeay!

On the last episode, we were left at the very peak point where the Prosecutor Kim Yeong-joo (Lee Joon-hyuk) took off our City Hunter mask. Will Lee Yun-seong (Lee Min-ho) be caught? The beginning of the 19th episode will absolutely blow your mind and start liking the Prosecutor (just like Da-hye (Goo Ha-ra) that turned to him instead of Lee Yun-seong).

Thanks to Prosecutor Kim Yeong-Joo for letting the City Hunter a.k.a Lee Yun-seong goes and escapes from jail just in time before the military teams come. The Prosecutor even lies and says that he doesn't know anything about the City Hunter either his face or identity.

Even though it is shown that Mr. Cheon Jae-man (Choi Jung-woo) has been caught, somebody (obviously a bad bad bad guy) in a black suit releases him. Mr. Cheon Jae-man shows his disgusting sly smile.

On the next day, the two greatest men in South Korea meet (Yun-seong and the Prosecutor). When Yun-seong asks why the Prosecutor let him go, he dramatically says 'because the City Hunter has won over the law'.

Meanwhile, Mr. Cheon Jae-man calls Yun-seong and offers him a 'great deal'. Just if the City Hunter would let him go, he'll give the Secret Document to the City Hunter. Whilst Yun-seong refuses, Mr Cheon Jae-man frustratingly describes him as a  'fearless and disrespect' fellow. Who will be trapped to your crafty tactic, Mr Cheon?? Obviously not our greatest City Hunter.

In this episode, it is asserted that Yun-seong is the President (Chun Ho-jin)'s son. Prosecutor Kim Yeong-joo is the first who realized this fact through Cheon Jae-man's document titled ' SUNFLOWER ' and seeing a Sunflower painting drawn by the President (which is posted in the President's blog).

The situation becomes worse when Yun-seong starts to take notice that something fishy is happening. First, the Mr Cheon Jae-man's assassin (still with his scary eyes, like always) who tells Yun-seong that after his master's visit to the President, he was obsessed with a woman that holds his one last chance to escape and survive. And her name is Lee….Kyeong…Hee. Lee Kyeong Hee?? Wait! Is that Yun-seong's mom? Yes she is. Yun-seong stares at the assassin's eyes in disbelieve.

Afterward, Yun-seong contacts a woman that used to be his mom's neighbor and she told him everything (through a bribe) that Lee Kyeong-hee (Kim Mi-sook) was having a hard life and was likely to have a child with another man that was not his husband. In another word, extramarital affairs. BANG! This is it. Park Mu-Yeol (Park Sang-min) isn't his father. Then who is it? Yun-seong's mind was brought back to the memory when he was having a lunch with the President. And both of them don't like eating beans. Seems like every point refers to the President.

Yun-seong rushes back to the hospital and asks his mom. She tells Yun-seong everything in a deep regret. That he really is the President's son. And how Mr Cheon Jae-man has threatened her to cover the fact for the sake of the President himself. She cries in an embarrassment and asks his son whether he is disappointed for having a mom like her. Like always, Yun-seong is the man. He just hugs her and says 'I'm not disappointed . I'm just thankful that you're alive'. He is the greatest! He asks his mom the last question, whether Jin-pyo (Kim Sang-joong) knows this fact. Her nod has made Yun-seong shock in disbelieve.

Yun-seong is crazily in shock and can't believe why Jin-pyo has raised him to be a weapon in the name of his father's revenge. Yun-seong feels that he is betrayed by Jin-pyo in his entire life.


In the meanwhile, Soo-hee arrives at Prosecutor Kim Yeong-joo's place and receives a package. Inside there's the secret document that the Prosecutor has been frustratingly and curiously looking for. After knowing that the document is there, the Prosecutor quickly drives his car and comes back home. Unfortunately, whilst he is still on his way, Mr Cheon Jae-man's henchmen come, seize the document from Soo-hee (Hwang Sun-hee), and cruelly beat her.

When the Prosecutor arrives, he finds that Soo-hee is tied up and has a bruise on his face. He brought Soo-hee to the hospital and takes a good care of her.


The prosecutor receives a text from City Hunter. Soo-hee tells him to go and she'll be waiting in the hospital. When the Prosecutor was about to leave, the entire action starts to be recorded in a slow motion. It really is a typical of Korean drama. It surely gives an impression that something is about to happen to the Prosecutor.  

At his place, Yun-seong finally finds where Mr Cheon Jae-man is. He is hiding in the scrapyard.


The Prosecutor comes there first. Unfortunately he was beaten in many places by Mr Cheon Jae-man's henchmen. But he does know where the document is. He tells Yun-seong through a text and locks himself with the henchmen in order to restrain them from chasing Yun-seong. South Korean must be really proud for having such a prosecutor.

Yun-seong comes to the place and performs his popularly known martial arts through kicks and punches. He receives the text from the prosecutor and gets the document (which is about to be destroyed!) on the time. He finally gets it on his hands.

Inside the hall, the Prosecutor is bleeding... suffering... and nearly loses his life. With his last breath, he tells Mr. Cheon jae-man that he, the Prosecutor of South Korea, will definitely arrest Cheon Jae-man. But at the time, one of the henchmen beats him in the head. Blood scarily streams down to his head.

Yun-seong realizes that the Prosecutor must be somewhere inside. Instead of chasing after Mr. Cheon Jae-man, he quickly runs and looks for the Prosecutor. Yun-seong finally finds him dying with red fresh blood everywhere. The Prosecutor, with his last breath, tells Yun-seong that Mr. Cheon Jae-man escapes through the Harbour and asks Yun-seong or the City Hunter his last request. "Could you please forgive my father?" What a son! Still thinks of his father when he was about to die. Then he closes his eyes. Is he really died???

Surprisingly, the 19th episode rating is quite low comparing to the previous episode which gets the 1st rank. This episode sits in the 3rd place both in Seoul and nationwide. Still not bad though. But I believe its last episode will get more attention and achieve the 1st place for its one last time. Can't believe we have to say goodbye to our City Hunter soon. However, let's just wait and see how this beautifully-made drama is gonna end.
