I don’t think anyone would say 2020 was a good year but for some there were good things about the year. For those actors and actresses that had great dramas or movies this year, it’s something to be proud of and to be acknowledged rather than just trashing what has been a tumultuous 12 months. Moon Chae Won saw a career boost thanks to her turn as the detective and dogged wife in Flower of Evil, one of the best crafted melodramas thrillers of this year. Her costar Lee Jun Ki had the juicier character to play, maybe a serial killing psycho but really a mentally abused emotionally stunted man. So she played the straight (wo)man of the drama, the pillar that stands in for the audience as we discover what she discovers and hurt alongside her. She was radiant in spirit and soulful in delivery, I can’t believe it’s been 8 years since Nice Guy because it feels like her FoE role bookended that also powerhouse performance. Brava to her continued evolution.
