Poke a stick into your ear (it’s fine! it didn’t even hit anything important! don’t even worry about it!) and go completely crazy, before being usurped by a doppleganger who is in love with your wife, because this week on the show Lee Evie is ranting about the 2019 Korean historical drama THE CROWNED CLOWN. Starring Yeo Jin-gu as both the stick-poking mad king of Joseon and his clownish look-alike, as well as the always beautiful Lee Se-young as his very confused queen, this is both a wonderful sageuk filled with secret identities and plot twists, as well as an ethically confusing conundrum. Well, at least that was the case for Lee Evie, listen to her ranty waffle to find out why! … More Kdrama Podcast 62: THE CROWNED CLOWN overview
Be a handsome (yet tortured) detective, find some bodies at a train station and then solve that parallel-world serial killer sh*t like a pro, because this week on the show Lee Evie is discussing the 2020 OCN crime thriller (with an otherworldly twist) Korean drama called TRAIN. This kdrama stars the always perfect Yoon Si Yoon, is moody, atmospheric and dark, filled with murders and creepy dopplegangers, and is just so emotionally engaging! Lee Evie absolutely adored this show, however, she also admits she is very biased as it really does tick all her personal taste boxes! … More Kdrama Podcast 61: TRAIN is the best show ever!!!! (Lee Evie reckons)
A haunting and deceptively simple book that packs a big emotional punch. Originally written in Japanese in the 90s, I think The Memory Police is definitely worth your time. … More BOOK THOUGHTS: The Memory Police by Yoko Ogawa
This week, let’s solve some mysteries! Lee Evie suggests you watch some dramas that, through tragic circumstances (sob sob, her internet was really slooow!!!), she did not get to finish. But she recommends them anyway! Try out the 2020 mystery thriller Korean drama THE GAME: TOWARDS ZERO, which stars Taecyeon, Lee Yeon-hee and Im Ju-hwan. Also check out the gritty youth 2020 mini kdrama HOW TO BUY A FRIEND. Both shows are really good! … More Kdrama Podcast 60: Looking for something to watch?

I was lucky enough to visit Korea a few years ago, and these are pictures I took while wandering around the main palace in Seoul, Gyeongbokgung. I LOVED it, it was stunningly beautiful and with so many small details to focus on. … More TRAVEL DIARY: Gyeongbokgung Palace, Korea
Get drunk, solve some crimes and then become the king of Joseon, because this week on the show Lee Evie is discussing her feelings around the 2019 Korean historical drama HAECHI. Starring Jung Il-woo (who basically carries this entire show on his shoulders … wow!) and Go Ara, as well as a whole heap of stellar side character performances, this story is based on the true history of Prince Yeoning, a Korean prince born to a lowly court maid. This show is fast-paced, filled with edge of your seat plots and twisty conspiracies, and also features a wonderful performance from Jung Moon-Sung as a despot power craving prince. Lee Evie throughly enjoyed this wonderful sageuk! … More Kdrama Podcast 59: Historical drama time with HAECHI!
Definitely a weird slow, low-budget, dramatic family tear-fest (form 2010) which somehow was nonetheless utterly addictive and lovely. Some characters were shouty and overly hysterical at times but somehow I just thoroughly enjoyed it anyway, it was beautiful and sweet and made me feel so much! … More KOREAN DRAMA REVIEW: It’s Okay, Daddy’s Girl.
What do you do if you are a frazzled secretary with a boss who can’t see faces (wut!)? You hoodwink him into falling in love with you … while believing you are someone else, of course! This week on the show, Lee Evie is chatting about the 2019 romantic comedy Korean drama THE SECRET LIFE OF MY SECRETARY! What a cute, fluffy and quirky show, with a charm factor that belies its simple premise and plot. This kdrama is definitely not rocket science, but if you are in the mood for something silly and fun, this is a surprisingly solid little show that really hits the spot! … More Kdrama Podcast – 58: THE SECRET LIFE OF MY SECRETARY overview
