Kdrama Podcast 67: PROMISE THIEF publication day and SPLASH SPLASH LOVE kdrama overview

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

Kdrama Podcast: 40: Being silly with HIT THE TOP!

Be a tragic boy-band star from the 90s and then time travel into the future and fall in love with your son’s girlfriend (what?!), because this week on the podcast Lee Evie is ignoring all things virus related and instead discussing the very silly and fun 2017 Kdrama HIT THE TOP (also known as THE BEST HIT).

Kdrama Podcast: TEMPTED / THE GREAT SEDUCER overview

Become waaaay too embroiled in your parent’s love lives while immersing yourself in completely avoidable misery, and then scream and cry when it all backfires, because this week Lee Evie is discussing the bonkers (yet strangely addicting?) 2018 Korean drama known as TEMPTED or sometimes as THE GREAT SEDUCER (which is honestly the dumbest name ever!). Starring a group of indescribably gorgeous people, including Woo Do-Hwan, Joy, Moon Ga-Young and Kim Min-Jae, this kdrama is about rich broken teens who keep making everything worse by acting like tiny small children. It’s also a weirdly satisfying show! In this episode, Lee Evie talks about what she liked, what she didn’t, and the overall cringe factor of this drama! … More Kdrama Podcast: TEMPTED / THE GREAT SEDUCER overview

Get into a car accident and go blind, and then spend your time alternating between playing the piano and screaming at Ji-Soo, because this week on the podcast Lee Evie is talking about the 2016 Korean drama PAGE TURNER. Starring the always beautiful Kim So-Hyun and the absolute goof Ji-Soo (seriously, Ji-Soo is such a goof in this show!), this drama is a beautiful and tender look at dreams … and what to do when they come crashing down. Do you pursue your dream anyway, just because you love it, or do you find a new dream to replace the old one? This is a Kdrama with thought-provoking themes and positive messages, and is funny, silly and emotionally moving. And at only 3 episodes, it is most definitely worth your time! … More Kdrama Podcast: Sweet, dark and emotional with PAGE TURNER!

Kdrama Podcast: ROOKIE HISTORIAN GOO HAE-RYUNG overview

Grab a smallpox vaccine and a romance novel, because this week on the podcast Lee Evie is discussing the decidedly feminist 2019 Kdrama ROOKIE HISTORIAN GOO HAE-RYUNG, starring the charming Shin Se-Kyung and very sweet Cha Eun-Woo. This drama turns stereotypical gender roles upside down and inside out, featuring a lonely prince locked away in his castle and the modern intelligent woman who is going to save him (and herself.
