Be a rich and successful (yet emotionally damaged) South Korean lady and fly to North Korea (oops!) in a parachute, only to crash land on a random (handsome) soldier’s head, because this week on the show Lee Evie is discussing her feelings on the 2019 mega-hit kdrama CRASH LANDING ON YOU. 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
This show is zany beyond belief, a fluffy thin-as-paper romantic comedy show that is hysterically ridiculous in every way. … More KOREAN DRAMA REVIEW: Bel Ami / Pretty Man.
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 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
Get stuck under a collapsed shopping centre and then fall in love with a very damaged (yet handsome) dude, because today Lee Evie is discussing the ten reasons why you should love the 2017 kdrama BETWEEN LOVERS (also apparently known as RAIN OR SHINE). This Korean melodrama is tragic, gorgeous, slow-burn and romantic as hell. It also has some boring construction bits in it. But let Lee Evie tell you, if you like your romance dramas to be filled with agony and longing (yet still have a happy ending earned through the quiet power of falling in love) then does she ever have the perfect show for you! … More Kdrama Podcast: Ten reasons to love BETWEEN LOVERS
Impersonate your identical twin sister and then realise the boy you are falling in love with is already in love with you, but only because he thinks you are your sister (pheww …. that’s complicated folks!!!!!), because today Lee Evie is talking about the very excellent and angsty 2015 youth melodrama WHO ARE YOU: SCHOOL 2015, which stars the gorgeous Kim So-Hyun, Nam Joo-Hyuk and Yook Sung-Jae. This was the sixth instalment in the very popular ‘School’ Kdrama series and is one of Lee Evie’s favourite Korean dramas of all time, probably only because she boarded the correct ship in the love triangle. Listen as she discusses her ten reasons to adore this drama, the power of a love triangle done right, and Kim So-Hyun’s utter perfection. … More Kdrama Podcast: Ten reasons to love WHO ARE YOU: SCHOOL 2015!
