Grab a gun, a dog, and a bunch of soldiers, and then go hunting monsters in the DMZ, because this week on the podcast Lee Evie is discussing the 2020 OCN thriller Kdrama SEARCH, which she thought was half creepy, fun and great, and half slightly underdeveloped (boo hoo!). Starring Jang Dong-yoon, Kyrstal and Yoon Park, this drama has a unique concept and setting, and was very nearly awesome … but not quite (in Lee Evie’s opinion, anyway!) … More Kdrama Podcast 77: SEARCH overview
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
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
Start a business and fall in love with a (very sweet and geeky) LIAR, because this week on the show Lee Evie is discussing the charming 2020 romance kdrama START UP. This show is inspiring, focuses on themes around following your dreams and not letting set backs destroy you, and stars the gorgeous Suzy, sweet Nam Joo Hyuk, and second-male-lead-syndrome inducing Kim Sun-ho. What a lovely Korean drama! You will laugh and cry, and then go tearing out of the house to make your own dreams happen, haha! … More Kdrama Podcast 72: START UP overview
Really this whole story boils down to one man’s redemption, all caused by the catalyst of his daughter being his second chance at having a life. It was so much deeper than just a simple man-on-the-run-wrongfully-accused drama. It was so much better than that too, with the first few, admittedly exciting, but also soulless action episodes evolving into an emotional story of love and hope and choices. I LOVED these characters by the end. What an emotional ride! … More KOREAN DRAMA REVIEW: Two Weeks.
Repeat the same day forever, and consistently stick to your mean-boy ways, until finally you realise that the greatest thing you’ll ever learn, is just to love and be loved in return! This week on the show, Lee Evie is talking about a surprisingly cool 2016 Korean mini-drama called ONE MORE TIME, a contemporary fantasy kdrama that starts off dumb and silly, and yet in the end actually holds the answer to the eternal question … what is the meaning of life? (spoiler: it is LOVE, you guys! LOVE is the meaning of life!) Starring the handsome and spectacularly dimpled Kim Myung-soo (also known as ‘L’) and the absolutely gorgeous Yoon So-hee, this is a short hidden gem that is worth your time (Lee Evie reckons!). … More Kdrama Podcast 66: ONE MORE TIME mini-drama is surprisingly meaningful!
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.
