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

Eeep. … More Kdrama Podcast 73:BOYS OVER FLOWERS episode 1 recap GUEST GAB
In 2020, Lee Evie watched doctors play tunes (HOSPITAL PLAYLIST), two dramas about small business entrepreneurs, which is a lot more fun than it sounds! (START UP and ITAEWON CLASS). She watched two detectives get sucked into multiple parallel worlds (TRAIN and THE KING: ETERNAL MONARCH) and one gothic fairytale about the most gorgeous people on earth (IT’S OKAY TO NOT BE OKAY). She also watched precisely one (WTF dramaland????) sageuk Korean drama that aired in 2020. Which is outrageous! Historical kdrama is Lee Evie’s favourite! How could there have been so few new shows in 2020? Blurg. Also, Lee Evie watched a whole boatload of other shows too! Whoah. … More Kdrama Podcast: 2020 kdrama in review!

Grab a lip balm, a mad futuristic face care mask, a cool sports car, a foundation stick, a ziplock kimchi bag and a whole heap of BBQ fried chicken, because this week Lee Evie is discussing one of the most anticipated kdramas of 2020, THE KING: ETERNAL MONARCH. This Korean drama stars a smorgasbord of cool actors, including Lee Min Ho, Kim Go Eun, Woo Do-Hwan and Kim Kyung Nam. It also stars a whole heap of fried chicken. And also those delivery apps you use to order fried chicken when you are too far from the fried chicken shop to just walk there and order fried chicken yourself. Lee Evie has complex feelings about this drama, both loving aspects of it and feeling a bit ‘meh’ about others. So you are warned! … More Kdrama Podcast: Enjoy the products on display in THE KING: ETERNAL MONARCH
