Kdrama Podcast 68: HIGH END CRUSH is fluffy romcom gold!

Wear a pink summer trench coat with matching summer shorts, while screaming at everyone about how you are totally completely absolutely NOT IN LOVE, because this week Lee Evie is chatting about the gorgeous (and hilarious) 2018 Kdrama mini-drama HIGH END CRUSH. Starring the fantastic (and fantastically attired) Jung Il-woo (dude, make this man the lead in every kdrama ever!!!!!) and Lee Evie’s newly discovered and beloved actress Jin Se-yeon, this wacky Korean drama is pure ‘turn your brain off’ fun. Charming, very funny, and revolving around Jung Il-woo’s perfectly ridiculous performance as an arrogant jerk entertainment CEO, this is an addictive and romantic ride, and Lee Evie loved it!

  1. Hi! Thank you so much for your podcast, I live in Los Angeles and have become a huge fan K dramas during the Covid pandemic quarantine. I have one special request, in your blog or during your podcast could you please share where or how you stream or access the shows that you find? I have wanted to watch several of the ones you mentioned but I have no idea how I can find them to stream them.
    Thank you for your fun energy and engaging podcast.

    1. Oh thank you so much for your lovely comment, Natalie, and yes, Kdrama has become a bit of a life saver for many during this weird year of 2020! Kdrama has kept me happy so many times when life gets stressful! To answer your question, I watch a lot of shows on Netflix, and also on Viki as well, which are the official streaming platforms that I know of. Usually, most dramas can be found between those. I hope that helps you! πŸ™‚


  2. Thank you for this podcast. As you, I am presently obsessed with Jung Il Woo and watching everything he’s in.

    I actually loved his performance in this mini drama. Was unexpectedly cool. Like you, I don’t prefer rich jerks, but this guy was cluelessly charming as a jerk. Kind of reminded me of Park Seo Jun’s What’s Wrong with Secretary Kim. But that drama I dropped. This one I kept:).

    I prefer this over FLOWER BOY RAMYUN SHOP AND/OR Cinderella and The Four Knights. This trio is kind similar, brainless ride. But High End Crush is like it’s name, the character is high end.

    As you know, JIW was good in 49 Days (he stole the show). I actually liked him (a lot) in GOLDEN RAINBOW too. I just don’t want to recommend because it’s emotionally draining. But the love story there was so cringeworthy intense, more than ROMEO AND JULIET.

    As mentioned before, I loooooved him in THE RETURN OF ILJIMAE. Not so much in SWEET MUNCHIES (writing was so so).

    A little trivia. Do you know JIW is a great cook? He was in a cooking competition reality show last year. There, in one episode, he was competing against… JIN SE YEON! And he won kkk.

    Btw, I was excited to hear that the friend who recommended HAECHI to you runs a blog in Spanish. I am fluent in Spanish. We should definitely connect! What is her blog?

    1. Haha, yay, I am so glad you enjoyed this drama too, I thought it was so unexpectedly brilliant, it was probably a bit of a highlight of the year, because I just gobbled it up and felt so addicted. Very cute and funny! Jung Il Woo is so charming in it (I like your description of cluelessly charming! that feels so appropriate, haha)

      Mmmh, I haven’t heard great things about Sweet Munchies so have avoided it so far!

      Haha, I loved the cooking trivia, that is hilarious they competed against each other! I am watching Jin Se Yeon in a 50 episode historical drama right now called Flower In Prison, with Goo Soo. She is amazing in it, probably now one of my favourite characters ever!

      Yes, my friend is Cata, she has a Spanish language kdrama podcast! This is her instagram: https://www.instagram.com/catafern/?hl=en
      Her podcast is called: Dorameando con la Cata and is on all listening platforms if you search for it. Or here is a link that will hopefully work: https://anchor.fm/dorameandoconlacata

      I sadly can’t speak Spanish so haven’t been able to listen, but it looks very interesting! I hope you enjoy it πŸ™‚

      Saranghaeyo! πŸ™‚
