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!

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.

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

This Korean drama stars Hyun-Bin and Son Ye-jin, and just the largest cast of absolute scene-stealing side characters Lee Evie has ever seen! From the second lead couple to the gaggle of idiotic soldier boys, through to the mother-in-law and the village ladies, this show’s side character’s were absolute gold! Also, the rest of the show is excellent too! … More Kdrama Podcast: 56 – CRASH LANDING ON YOU overview
