The other night I was struck with inspiration after hearing the 2008 song “All The Same To Me” by Anya Marina. (And became an instant fan!) I’d watched someone’s tribute to their favorite Ladies of Film Noir from the 40’s & 50’s.
Money Flower has been on my mind this week and I thought the song would be a perfect match. There’s a definite gloomy noir theme to both the drama and the song that blend well. It’s jazzy and sensuous with a hint of pop fun.
For those unfamiliar with the term, Film Noir is defined as – A style or genre of cinematographic film marked by a mood of pessimism, fatalism, and menace. The term was originally applied (by a group of French critics) to American thriller or detective films made in the period 1944–54 and to the work of directors such as Orson Welles, Fritz Lang, and Billy Wilder.
I love making videos so when that urge hits I jump on it and get into a creative zone. I didn’t have many distractions so I was able to create it in two days. Hopefully I’ll be inspired to make more Kdrama videos. I’d only made two many years ago for Chuno, one for Lee Daegil and one for Song Tae Ha.
My regret is that the Chuno clips were subpar because Youtube didn’t have full HD yet. I shudder when I remember the very early years with only 240p! You can watch the new video at 1080HD. Youtube and I aren’t friends these days as they’d removed a lot of my content for other fandoms. So here’s hoping they keep up my Kdrama videos!

Congratulations to our Jang Hyuk! He just won MBC’s Top Excellence Actor Award for Weekend Drama, thanks to his amazing performance as Kang Pil Joo in Money Flower. He was also nominated for Daesang, which went to Kim Sang Joong for his role in Rebel, the thief who stole the people.
Other winners from Money Flower were Lee Mi Sook (Top Excellence Actress for Jung Mal Ran) and Jang Seung Jo (Excellence Actor Award for Jang Boo Cheon).
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.
Here is a complete list of nominees and winners
Jang Hyuk and Lee Mi Sook win Daesang in my heart! and they also stole and set the red carpet on fire!

The Jang Brothers were so cute together!
And there was this priceless moment when Jang Hyuk brought water bottles to his peers. Why is he so lovely???
And then this “on camera reunion” with Kim Ji Suk (who played Wangson in Chuno and also won an award tonight for his role in 20th Century boy and girl)
