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!
Grab a monkey, some soju and a water god, because now it is first episode challenge time! This is a brand new thing Lee Evie just invented, which involves her watching some first episodes and then, you know, talking about them and stuff. How challenging! This week she tackles the 2017 fantasy romance THE BRIDE OF HABAEK (in which actors she really likes, Nam Joo-Hyuk and Shin Se-Kyung, both seem to forget how to move their faces), the 2018 fantasy romance A KOREAN ODYSSEY, also known as HWAYUGI (in which Lee Seung-gi prances around like the rockstar monkey god he truly is) and finally the 2019 modern romance WHEN THE CAMELLIA BLOOMS (in which Gong Hyo-jin and Kang Ha-Neul live quiet domestic lives and also battle serial killers apparently). … More Kdrama podcast: A KOREAN ODYSSEY, WHEN THE CAMELLIA BLOOMS and THE BRIDE OF HABAEK a first episode challenge!

This Kdrama dips into a fascinating and dark time period (Japanese occupation era Korea) and also features one of the best kiss scenes … maybe ever? … More Kdrama Podcast: CHICAGO TYPEWRITER overview
