Grab a plastic sword, and a bemused Nam Joo-hyuk, and then … like … defeat some little jellie things … and save some students … or whatever … Mmmh. This show is weird! This week, Lee Evie is chatting about the intriguing 2020 Korean drama THE SCHOOL NURSE FILES, which stars Jung Yu-mi and Nam Joo-hyuk. This show is strange, beautifully shot, kind of haunting, sometimes beautiful, sometimes a little confusing … but overall, Lee Evie actually really really liked it! (Though the ending felt weird!). Come listen as she shares her thoughts! … More Kdrama Podcast 69: THE SCHOOL NURSE FILES overview
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! … More Kdrama Podcast 68: HIGH END CRUSH is fluffy romcom gold!
Today’s episode is a weird one, because it is a PUBLICATION DAY episode! The second book in Lee Evie’s Promise Series, which is set during the Joseon dynasty of old Korea, is out today. PROMISE THIEF is a dark and romantic mystery adventure about a gisaeng trying to make a better future for herself. But because it would be weird to release an episode of a kdrama podcast and not talk about kdrama, Lee Evie is also discussing her feelings around the totally swoony, charming and funny gem of a mini Korean drama, SPLASH SPLASH LOVE. This Korean drama was released in 2015 and stars the always wonderful Kim Seul-gi, the very handsome Yoon Doo-joon, and also side roles by Jin Ki-joo and Ahn Hyo-seop. This is a time slip drama worth your time! … More Kdrama Podcast 67: PROMISE THIEF publication day and SPLASH SPLASH LOVE kdrama overview
Repeat the same day forever, and consistently stick to your mean-boy ways, until finally you realise that the greatest thing you’ll ever learn, is just to love and be loved in return! This week on the show, Lee Evie is talking about a surprisingly cool 2016 Korean mini-drama called ONE MORE TIME, a contemporary fantasy kdrama that starts off dumb and silly, and yet in the end actually holds the answer to the eternal question … what is the meaning of life? (spoiler: it is LOVE, you guys! LOVE is the meaning of life!) Starring the handsome and spectacularly dimpled Kim Myung-soo (also known as ‘L’) and the absolutely gorgeous Yoon So-hee, this is a short hidden gem that is worth your time (Lee Evie reckons!). … More Kdrama Podcast 66: ONE MORE TIME mini-drama is surprisingly meaningful!
Be the saddest woman in the world and spend your time listening to your boss breathe (wut?) because this week on the show, Lee Evie is discussing the agonising yet beautiful 2018 kdrama MY MISTER (also known as MY AJUSSI). This slow burn Korean drama stars Lee Sun-Kyun and IU as very very sad people, who connect with each other as a lifeline in a difficult world … and also there is a heap of corporate espionage in there too! Or something. This is the kind of show you sink into, both heavy and slow, with moments of beauty that shine through the sadness. Lee Evie mostly loved it, but had some hate for a few side characters, so be warned … there is a little bit of ranting ahead! … More Kdrama Podcast 65: MY MISTER overview
Pretend to be your identical sister and fall in love with a king with prophetic dreams (who was also shot in the head, but don’t worry, it’s totally fine!) because this week on the show, Lee Evie is chatting about the 2020 historical Korean drama QUEEN: LOVE AND WAR (also known as THE SELECTION: WAR BETWEEN WOMEN). Starring a sassy and cool (for the first half at least) Jin Se-yeon and a very dimpled Kim Min-kyu, this kdrama sageuk is fast-paced, fun and engaging, and though maybe not the highest quality show around, it is well worth your time! … More Kdrama Podcast 64: QUEEN: LOVE AND WAR overview
Feel like some aching sadness, swoony romance, and also some ridiculous laughs? Well, good, because Lee Evie has you covered. Today on the show, she is talking about two Kdramas, THE PACKAGE, a 2017 romance/travel Korean drama starring the always lovely Lee Yeon-Hee and actor Jung Yong-hwa. Also, she is talking about the hidden gem of a coming-of-age show GIRLS’ GENERATION 1979, a 2017 youth drama set in … you guessed it, 1979! … More Kdrama Podcast 63: Discover THE PACKAGE and GIRLS’ GENERATION 1979
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)
