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!

I’ve been meaning to start my Chuno rewatch for a while! I’m so excited but also very busy these days. I have no idea how long this rewatch will take me, judging from my Thank You one which lasted around 7 months! Rewatching while doing captures and gifs is rewarding (Jang Hyuk in full close up and slow motion, is very rewarding) but also time consuming. And you know, Chuno is special to me. I know I’ll get so absorbed that I’m almost afraid to start!
This time around, I intend to pay attention to the whole story. So far, to me Chuno has been Daegil and friends, Daegil and his love (with all due respect to lovely Lee Da Hae and fans), Daegil and his rival (with all due respect to gorgeous Oh Ji Ho and fans, but you know me! biased!). Yes, once again I admit my utter lack of objectivity (with all due respect to the whole amazing cast, director, writer, etc etc etc). So don’t be surprised or disappointed if my captures and gifs are mostly Daegil, friends, love and rival, but,I will try! As usual, I’ll follow my heart on this rewatch. I don’t know what kind of posts will emerge as I’m going in without a plan or schedule. But now that I have you to share the experience and memories, it should be 100000 x more fun!
I also don’t know how smart it is of me to watch Daegil now when Lee Gun (Fated to Love You) and Mimi (Lee Gun’s hair) are just around the corner! Going from Chuno to Fated to Love You will be quite a contrast :p For my Thank You rewatch I stocked up on choco pies. What should I get for Chuno?
Maybe some rice wine? I shall need it to endure THE PAIN!!!!!! (The wonderfully delicious pain in this case, such a masoquist)
Or some boiled eggs? lol
Fear not! I promise not to cry while I eat them, or at least I won’t film myself and show you!
Here are some awesome b/w drawing like images from the opening!
