The Korean adaptation of the Japanese comic "City Hunter", starring Lee Min-ho, will premiere in May 2011.

An official from his agency Starhaus Entertainment told 10Asia over the phone Wednesday, "It has been confirmed that the first episode of 'City Hunter' will air on May 25 next year".

"City Hunter", originally a Japanese manga series by Tsukasa Hojo, is about a private detective named Ryo Saeba who works to get of crime in the city of Tokyo during the latter half of the 1980s.

In September, the show's PR firm announced that the 23-year-old heartthrob will be playing the role of Ryo Saeba in the Korean drama version which will take place in present time Seoul, making it the first time for the Japanese comic to be turned into a drama.

Lee first appeared in various TV and short dramas in 2006 and rose to stardom in Korea and throughout Asia after starring in KBS' hit TV series "Boys over Flowers" alongside Ku Hye-sun and Kim Hyun-joong.

His last small screen role was in March where he pretended to be a homosexual man in MBC's "Personal Taste" opposite Korean actress Son Ye-jin.
