Time for another writing update, I was meant to do it at the end of December … but I didn’t! Haha. Oops. So here is an update on what I’ve been up to lately 🙂 … More Lee Evie WRITING Diaries: January 2021
I am trying something a little bit new, which will be a way for me to keep track of my goals and writing progress. I feel like it is good for me to track this stuff, if only so I can look back and see things slowly taking shape. I have a bad habit of aiming for rather crazy goals in terms of my writing progress, and then instead of feeling happy and proud of everything I did achieve, I instead feel sad I didn’t quite make it to my wished for ideal destination … which is a very silly approach, haha. So here is what I achieved this month in terms of my writing! 🙂 … More Lee Evie WRITING Diaries: November 2020
Today’s episode is a weird one, because it is a PUBLICATION DAY episode! The second book in Lee Evie’s Promise Series, which is set during the Joseon dynasty of old Korea, is out today. PROMISE THIEF is a dark and romantic mystery adventure about a gisaeng trying to make a better future for herself. But because it would be weird to release an episode of a kdrama podcast and not talk about kdrama, Lee Evie is also discussing her feelings around the totally swoony, charming and funny gem of a mini Korean drama, SPLASH SPLASH LOVE. This Korean drama was released in 2015 and stars the always wonderful Kim Seul-gi, the very handsome Yoon Doo-joon, and also side roles by Jin Ki-joo and Ahn Hyo-seop. This is a time slip drama worth your time! … More Kdrama Podcast 67: PROMISE THIEF publication day and SPLASH SPLASH LOVE kdrama overview

Don’t like that Kdrama ending? Write your own!! No … seriously, Lee Evie was so frustrated by one of the side character storylines in the 2013 Kdrama GU FAMILY BOOK that she literally wrote a whole book to rectify it!!
