Would I Date Him? Money Flower

This time on Would I Date Him? I reflect upon the leading man, Pil Joo (Jang Hyuk), from the series Money Flower. I am a Jang Hyuk fan. He was the reason I watched this series.

Our candidate: Pil Joo portrayed by Jang Hyuk from the series Money Flower.

Background. Pil Joo is the rich and power Jang family “fixer”, a lawyer that takes care of all things – ethical or not. He’s served the Jang family for 20 years. What they don’t know is that Pil Joo is the eldest albeit illegitimate Jang grandson. They also don’t know that Pil Joo is ready to spring his revenge plan for the murder of his brother and attempted murder of his mother and himself. He’s willing to do almost anything and use anyone to get the revenge he has dreamed of for two decades.

His pluses:
* Subjective – Cares for a select few
* Absolute – Master strategist, Smart, Good looking, Great hair / body / style

His minuses:
* Absolute – Sliding Ethics, Revenge or bust attitude, User
* Subjective – Cold, Too serious

Is he my next date? 👍
If Pil Joo turned his considerable charm and hidden warmth my way, I’d be a lucky woman. Otherwise, I’d be a one and done date. Either way works for me.

Asian drama fan. I watch and blog dramas on https://kjtamusings.wordpress.com/.

    Unless his revenge was complete, “one and done” sounds about right; after all who could pass up a man who looks SOOO FINE! It would be difficult to develop a relationship with someone obsessed with revenge who has a cold and calculating demeanor . It would be difficult to determine where you stand.

    I don’t think Pil joo is my nature a user. Although he did use people for his revenge. I think his revenge was for extreme circumstances that won’t occur again unless somebody murders his chosen mate and child. Once he realized his love for Mo hyeon, he was very giving to her to the point of giving her ammunition that could’ve foiled his revenge. So ultimately her needs were more important than his revenge.

    And therein lies the real problem. He’s a man that would hold some other woman in his heart.

    But even if there were no Mo hyeon in his heart, I think his personality would frustrate most women. Sure we like the strong silent type, but that’s only cool for a while. Then we get all “Why won’t you converse with me about the small things? How was your day? How’d things go at work today? What was prison like? You never share!”

    Now if I were a modern woman, I’d enjoy him for a while, not wanting anything serious! But, alas, I’m not capable of relationship without commitment.

    So poor, sweet, sexy, rich, Pil joo in Jang Hyuk’s body – SCREECH THE BRAKES – er, that would be “NO!” 😁

    • I agree he used for revenge. I agree his love for Mo Hyeon compelled him to give her the ammunition to help her family and expose his dirty dealings. Of course he did AFTER torpedoing her life by the arranged marriage to Boo Cheon.
      Dating him if he wanted someone else would be subpar. If this were the case, then the one and done date would suffice. Maybe do something memorable for the date.

    Pil Joo as a stand alone guy outside the story of Money Flower? He could be an undiscovered gem. After all, he did go to college and law school where I’m sure he had to be civil if not pleasant. I always thought he was a guy in need of a little comfort touch. No one ever pats his arm or gives him an “Okay!” fist bump or even a little temple massage when he comes home from work all stressed out from revenge. I don’t think you could get his total heart until he worked things out with Mo Hyeon, though. And while the show would have you believe he might have a happy future with her – it’s not totally necessary. I think that with time, both their hearts might be at peace with other people. I could see Mo Hyeon marry a guy with a lot of kids already – someone with a ready made family that she could love. Pil Joo – how about he meets someone at a silent retreat. He would be the person who had no problem keeping silent all weekend (without feeling the least bit better) while she managed to heal by reading great reflective books and taking long walks. I sense a fan fiction here!

      @humbledaisy1 – great fanfiction outline! And don’t forget the bird watching activities.

      The only point I would argue is about him probably being civil because he attended law school. After working in the legal field for over 30 years, I can tell you that lawyers are some of the rudest and most combative people you’ll ever meet. I was exposed to literally thousands of them besides the ones I worked with. No offense to you if you are a lawyer cause there were a very few exceptions. lol

      Agreed. Pil Joo wore the armor of revenge and kept everyone at arm’s length. He does need a loving touch. He deserves a loving touch. I’d like to offer my loving touch.

      Sign me up for that retreat! I like your thought process.

    Do you mean Kang Pil-joo or Jang Eun-cheon? If it is the latter then I might consider, since he already has completed his revenge and has time for romance now lol..

    I had to log in on this one—YES, YES, YES! I would date this handsome guy for a one time or for ages. There are no minuses for me. Just a solid YES!

    BTW– You all know Hyuk is in US right now, right. He is leaving from Las Vegas airport on Sunday night, and it is a great chance to see him in person. He is always super to fans that come out to see him. If you want more details, just say so.

        Jane– I do have those details, but since they were not announced by Sidus or tv show–I kind of feel funny just putting them out on internet. It was sort of like pulling teeth to get them from the manager–so I don’t want to mess it up for future news.

        Between the weather and lateness of Hyuk’s flight departure, I decided not to take a road trip to Vegas. I woke up to 8″ of snow ❄️ and wondered how much snow the mountain passes had. While I’m disappointed to have missed an opportunity to see Hyuk, I’m grateful to NOT be traveling in winter weather. Holly Moon, please post a pics for any pics you may have taken.

          Jane I am sad you missed him, but it was the best decision you could make when it comes to that kind of weather. And as it happened, Hyuk’s group must not have know about the 3 hrs ahead of flight time for international flights as they didn’t show up till 9:30 And Hyuk’s group went on thru and he was the last one, when Lorenza saw him. She did get his autograph and a picture with him, and he shook her hand but then he actually ran as he left her to catch up with his group. So at most a 3 minute opportunity with him.
          I was at the other side of security and with two more friends who flew in, we saw him after security clearance. We each received autographs, and picture were taken, gifts were given to him and more pictures. about 8 minutes of time. Then we let him go because as he was once again the last of the group thru security, the rest had gone on down to the gate, but sent one man back to get him.
          Was it worth the getting up at 2 to make my airport check in time, flying 2300 miles in 5 hours, waiting at the airport for 13 hours, and getting those 8 minutes with him. YES! Did it matter that I still had that 5 hour flight back before I could get picked up for a hour and a half trip home? NO! That time made if worth my time and money. He is so super beautiful and humble and polite, no matter what stress we were putting him thru, you could not help but love him. I know he is handsome, but I have to say pictures do not do him justice. He is stunningly beautiful.
          After 15 minutes past, we went on down to his gate, and he was in the lounge across from the gate. We waited till he came out when boarding time arrived. He walked through the crowds and One of my friends took video of him. He saw me trying to take a video of him , smiled and started toward me, but was intercepted by one of his group telling him where he needed to line up. Unfortunately for me, my video taking failed. I had not tapped hard enough to start the video, and so got nothing. I was too busy watching him to notice till the end. He boarded the plane and was gone from us. But again we had had another 10 minutes in his presence.
          It was an experience with no regrets, but instead a lovely memory.

          Sorry, I do not know how to put a picture here.

          Thanks for the update Holly. I’m glad y’all were able to see Hyuk, especially with having to wait. If your pics are on Instagram or something like it, could you post a link to share with KJT’s crew? If not would you mind emailing them to me?

      Hmmmmmm,interesting, Drama Fan (although I’m not surprised).

      But it makes me re-think “what EXACTLY does kjt mean by ‘would I date him’?”

      If date means go to dinner, movie a few times (and for the younger crowd may also include a sexual liason with no attachments) or does it mean a full relationship that means commitment and day-to-day seeing and/or living together?

      If I were the type who could do casual then – Kang Pil in Jang Hyuk’s body – no brainer! But long-term, I’d be so frustrated with him and nag him until he’d probably plot my murder or something. 😁

        I’m thinking of him post-revenge. He seems like a smart cool guy with a heart and my standards are not too high anyway. I’m a little pessimistic when it comes to humans so I think he is alright compared to most.
