Love the idea of the whole world being destroyed by zombies? Well great, because this week Lee Evie is discussing the thrilling second season of the big-budget production 2020 Kdrama KINGDOM, starring Joo Ji-Hoon and Bae-Doona (among a slew of recognisable faces!). This season is exciting, bad-arse, fast-paced and quite short, complete at only six episodes. It’s got action, horror, death, political plotting and super fast scary zombies! Everything a person needs. 🙂 … More Kdrama Podcast 41: KINGDOM season 2 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
What is a love Patzzi? I dunno. I guess it is a 2002 romcom Kdrama about a girl who lies and a tall handsome dude involved in a lot of weird hijinks. That is what a Love Patzzi is. This drama started off cute and breezy and fun (and really old fashioned), but then unfortunately got a little stagnant and boring about halfway through. It did totally redeem itself by the end though, clawing back all that shameless fluff fun, mainly just because the male lead was so damn awesome. … More KOREAN DRAMA REVIEW: My Love Patzzi.
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!
Conduct emotional interactions over a dying body instead of actually helping them, because this week on the podcast Lee Evie is discussing her first impressions of the hospital kdrama DR ROMANTIC SEASON TWO, starring the very gorgeous leads, Lee Sung-Kyung and Ahn Hyo-Seop.

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. And the whole of history). … More Kdrama Podcast: ROOKIE HISTORIAN GOO HAE-RYUNG overview
Marry a ghost and then sensuously eat a lot of kimchi, because this week on the podcast Lee Evie is discussing two dramas!

And then on her brand new podcast segment called — Hang On A Minute! That Isn’t Even Korean! This Is An Outrage!—Lee Evie is discussing the 2020 historical fantasy Chinese drama THE GHOST BRIDE, based on the fantastic book by Yangsze Choo! … More Kdrama Podcast: LET’S EAT 2 and THE GHOST BRIDE (hang on! That show isn’t Korean!)

Join the always charming Kim So-hyun and Taecyeon as they battle evil spirits, inevitable heartache and *swoon* their growing attraction.

The 2017 Korean drama, BETWEEN LOVERS is an absolute dream of a show, it is slow, moody, atmospheric and just gorgeously shot, and hands down the absolute most romantic drama I have ever seen. And that is saying something. Because most Kdramas are pretty bloody romantic. But yeah, I loved this drama. It really moved my heart. … More KOREAN DRAMA REVIEW: Between Lovers
