Get kidnapped by a very handsome man in armour, sucked through a hole into the distant past, and then be poisoned. Like … a lot. Because this week on the show, Lee Evie is doing a deep dive into one of her classic favourite kdramas, the 2012 time slip fantasy romance FAITH (also known as THE GREAT DOCTOR). This historical Korean drama stars Lee Min Ho, who is gold in this, and also Kim Eun Sook. Lee Evie still reckons this is her favourite Lee Min Ho role ever. Yes, it is old and a bit clunky, but Lee Evie will shout her love for this show from the rooftops forever! … More Kdrama Podcast: FAITH / THE GREAT DOCTOR overview
Time for another writing update, I was meant to do it at the end of December … but I didn’t! Haha. Oops. So here is an update on what I’ve been up to lately 🙂 … More Lee Evie WRITING Diaries: January 2021
Play heaps of piano, fall in love with a cranky pretty boy, and then get punched in the face by the dumbest drama ending of all time! This week on the podcast, Lee Evie is discussing her complicated feelings around the 2020 romance Korean drama DO DO SOL SOL LA LA SOL (which has a title that is literally impossible to remember!). Starring Go Ara in a luminous and vivid performance, and Lee Jae-wook as her cranky pretty boy hero, this drama starts off like a warm hug and ends with a punch to the throat. Lee Evie loved it … until she hated it. … More Kdrama Podcast: DO DO SOL SOL LA LA SOL overview
I am trying something a little bit new, which will be a way for me to keep track of my goals and writing progress. I feel like it is good for me to track this stuff, if only so I can look back and see things slowly taking shape. I have a bad habit of aiming for rather crazy goals in terms of my writing progress, and then instead of feeling happy and proud of everything I did achieve, I instead feel sad I didn’t quite make it to my wished for ideal destination … which is a very silly approach, haha. So here is what I achieved this month in terms of my writing! 🙂 … More Lee Evie WRITING Diaries: November 2020

To celebrate the publication day of my latest historical fiction novel, PROMISE THIEF, I have provided a one chapter sample from the novel (which includes the prologue too!). … More BOOK PUBLICATION DAY: Promise Thief
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

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). This show has a pretty twisted mystery at its heart, and a whole lot of hijinks, petty jealousy, dance numbers and complicated romance to enjoy, the perfect show to make you happy! It also stars the always wonderful Yoon Shi-Yoon and beautiful Lee Se-Young. … More Kdrama Podcast: 40: Being silly with HIT THE TOP!
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
