Actor Jang Hyuk sets new goal through Lee Mi-sook and Lee Soon-jae.


On the 8th Feb, Jang Hyuk carried out an interview after the end of MBC weekend drama “Money Flower” at a cafe in Sangsadong, Gangnam-gu, Seoul. 

Jang Hyuk said, “I set a new goal for myself through this work. In another 20 years, my acting career life will be 40 years old. Lee Mi-sook already has 40 years, and Lee Soon-jae has 60 years. I have been going on for over 20 years now. Once I endure another 20 years, constantly building characters and integrating with people, then would I be able to achieve the age of Lee Mi-sook and Lee Soon-jae. I have a goal to become an actor as unique and as enthusiastic as they are. There were so many things to learn.”

He added, “As I looked at their interpretations, I was surprised that such interpretation is possible! The attitude of how they work truly influenced their juniors. Lee Soon-jae is a real master of acting, he is able to control the amount to let go and withhold precisely, which was due to his experience and age.”

In ‘Money Flower’ Jang Hyuk played the role of Kang Pil-joo, who intentionally approached Lee Mi-sook (Jung Mal-ran) and Jang Seung-Jo (Jang Boo-cheon) to seek a revenge he had been planning for 20 years. 


More interview snipets:

SPOILER ALERT

I started shooting after receiving only 3 episodes of the script, so it was filmed without knowing what is going to happen next. When we were deliberating whether this drama is going to have a happy or sad ending, the director says, “I will not shoot a drama about dead people”, so the ending reflects the writer’s idea. From my point of view, getting back the name Jang Eun-cheon means a complete ending. In the last episode, there was actually a scene which Pil-joo and Mo-hyun look at each other, but it was edited out. If they have looked at each other, it would mean a new beginning. Editing this out leaves viewers with a lingering expectation.

Park Se-young is a very hardworking junior. When we were acting in ‘Beautiful Mind’ she would ask me which feeling should she portray? After I replied her, she can portray it within one second, and has been maintaining this way since then. This time it is also the same, she is really a very sincere person, well taken care of, has a good up-bringing, works hard to improve herself, and has a very good attitude towards her work.

My biggest turning point was enlisting in the army. After leaving, getting married and having kids, i was already in my 30s. Now I am in my 40s. I feel that I should take on more projects at this age in order to enrich my experience. It is only through more challenging roles and genre that I can widen my spectrum. It is just like the competitors who are taking part in the boxing match this year, those who had many sparring matches will find it easier. In this way then we can continue to move forward, otherwise we will be forever at the same spot. As compared to remaining at the same spot, I would rather get criticisms as I move forward.

I hope that viewers can trust my acting, as it is impossible for humans not to make mistakes. When i was young, I carved the words “passion” on my chair, hoping not to lose that as I grow up. That is the reason why seniors can last so long in the acting field. They say “When you are acting, your skills only count 30%, and your attitude counts for 70%. Only with a positive attitude can you continue for a long time.

Frankly speaking, of course I hope to win prizes, but it is not something I would ponder upon. Thinking back, I have gotten second place many times, but because of the fact that there is always someone better than me, it spurs me on further. It would be stressful if I aim to meet everyone’s expectations, I hope that I can be an actor who sets my own pace.

Q : Will there be a second season for Money Flower?

A : I do not know, but the writer does not seem to have this intention.

Have you seen a drama as sensual as Money Flower recently? 

Money Flower, a popular drama with good reasons 

When I first heard the title, ” Money Flower “, I had a misunderstanding about the drama. It was a drama that I could easily miss. Saturday night at 9 p.m. is MBC drama’s prime time slot. Even the prime time was considered a bit shallow, rather than brilliant. In this time slot, previously they aired ‘Pots of Gold’, ‘Jang Bo-ri is Here!’ and ‘You Are Too’. It was a time slot which I could easily imagine what kind of dramas were on the air. 

Moreover, the material of ‘Money Flower’ is not significantly different from those broadcast at that time. Again, there is a chaebol and a birth secret involved. The only difference is that the person with a birth secret is a male, and a heavy-weight actor named Jang Hyuk appearing as the incarnation of revenge. However, Jang Hyuk’s appearance alone did not necessarily mean that I have high expectations for the work. However, there was a raw curiosity to see what character this good-looking and atmospheric actor can introduce to a drama within this time slot.  

In ‘Money Flower’ which is nearing its finale, not only is Kang Pil-joo (played by Jang Hyuk) not damaged, but he has even grown more beautiful. The drama is about Kang Pil-joo’s work on building a block of a revenge play, and at the same time, a detailed description of the secret face of a male protagonist who hides his bloodline of the chaebol.

There are many interesting dramas, but fascinating ones are rare.

How charming is a man with a secret? And how awesome are the moments when the man retaliates the bullying snobbish people with his own ability? Here, Jang Hyuk’s particular weight falls like a drop of an espresso, and ‘Money Flower’ proves that a male lead role in a revenge story can be so beautiful and atmospheric. 


No, in fact, it is not only Kang Pil-joo, played by Jang Hyuk who is attractive. The drama is one of the most fascinating drama I have seen in a long time. There are many interesting dramas, but fascinating ones are rare. Even at some point of time, the title of ‘Money Flower’ which I had thought was appropriate for a comic book, is read differently. 

In fact, the title of the drama contains all the messages that the story contains. And you would agree with this if you are watching the drama. The people from a huge chaebol who are lead by the fragrance of the flowers that stem from money. But one day, as the flowers are falling, the humans are swayed according to the direction of the money, or according to the character of Kang pil-joo who is shaking his flow of money.

Perhaps the word ‘Money Flower ’ and the atmosphere it represents can been seen in a single character – Jung Mal-ran (Lee Mi-sook). She who stays on in Cheong-A group even after her husband’s death, has a beautiful face to match her desires. Her efforts to put her son, Jang Seung-jo, into the chairman position, who is not even related to the family, are appalling. But I can’t take my eyes off the Jung Mal-ran all the time when I was watching ‘Money Flower’. And actress Lee Mi-sook characterizes the relentlessness and greed of the character that was so fascinating. Having had to play comical characters and the role of the protaganist’s mother at one point, she succeeded in showing her own charm once again through this drama.  

In addition, although ‘Money Flower’ shows the typical process of bloodshed through the fight for money, it contains an unseen power. It is because I do not miss the unique classical and elegant atmosphere of this drama. The story is provocative, but the drama itself is static. Although the reversals are repeated, they are as graceful as a ballerina’s rotation. As such, viewers feel as if they appreciate a modern tragedy centered not on the usual melodrama, but it is on money. 


Moreover, I have never seen a more sensual drama than ‘Money Flower’ recently. There are no provocative or awkward skin exposures in this drama. However, the drama dramatically increases the tension between people and their situations to a sensual level. In the relationship between Kang Pil-joo (Jang Hyuk) and Na Mo-hyun (Park Se-young), there is no sensual feeling. There is only a lyrical tragedy like the romance that didn’t work out between them. 

However, much sensual tension flows between Kang Pil-joo and Jang Boo-cheon, as well as that between Kang Pil-joo and Jung Mal-ran. They want each other, but they doubt one another, they steal each other’s secrets, and they dream of destroying them someday. In the meantime, the feeling of desire is aroused, and sometimes the suspense of the desire is captured as a classical or elaborate sexy performance. Especially, the ending scene of the 20th episode of ‘Money Flower’ which is the best part of the production. At the moment when a tense situation seems to be Kang Pil-joo leaning in to kiss Jung Mal-ran, it was really a scene of Kang Pil-joo confessing that he is Jang Eun-cheon, the bloodline of the chaebol group.

As such, ‘Money Flower’ has done an excellent job of cooking using the most popular ingredients. It shows an impressive sense of balance between calm and tension. In addition, the stellar performances of the actors also boosted it. So, it is natural for it to capture both the ratings and quality.

While I feel grateful and happy and I’m also aware that these awards are not always “fair”, I feel Money Flower deserved even more recognition. It is an outstanding drama and I really wish more people would check it out.  But I won’t pressure much yet 😋 since the drama is not yet completed.
