I’m ready for MBC new weekend drama Money Flower to dump a load of intensity and makjang on the time slot, and maybe with it do better in ratings that currently airing Bad Thief, Good Thief. The only drawback is a sense of deja vu with lead Jang Hyuk cast in this drama because it comes across as a redux of his Midas, with a smart man driven by greed to succeed in a world controlled by the rich and powerful. Jang Hyuk works so consistently I’m no longer compelled to watch a drama just because he’s in it but reassured that he’ll do a bang up performance no matter what, a ringer in the world of K-drama leading men who can wake up and deliver. This time his leading lady is Park Se Young and he’s surrounded by the usual coterie of talented veterans with Lee Soon Jae and Lee Mi Sook. The drama premieres next weekend and from the first teaser below will surely be bathed in visual intensity.
