Wear a pink summer trench coat with matching summer shorts, while screaming at everyone about how you are totally completely absolutely NOT IN LOVE, because this week Lee Evie is chatting about the gorgeous (and hilarious) 2018 Kdrama mini-drama HIGH END CRUSH. Starring the fantastic (and fantastically attired) Jung Il-woo (dude, make this man the lead in every kdrama ever!!!!!) and Lee Evie’s newly discovered and beloved actress Jin Se-yeon, this wacky Korean drama is pure ‘turn your brain off’ fun.

Be a rich petulant man-child. Whine a bit. Spend your time emotionally manipulating a woman who loves you, and stringing her along because you don’t want anyone else to have her. Then decide you do actually like her. So you whine a bit. You also now spend your time emotionally manipulating her and stringing her along (even though you like her! WTF!). Repeat. Repeat. Repeat. Bluuuuuurrrrgggg!!!!!!! Lee Evie is having a meltdown, because this week on the podcast she is discussing the 2015 romantic comedy drama WARM AND COZY. Written by the famous Hong sisters, this kdrama stars Yoo Yeon-Seok (who Lee Evie still loves, even after seeing him play this awful character! Now that’s real love, folks!) and Kang So-Ra. The best thing about this show is that it is set on beautiful Jeju Island. Be warned … Lee Evie has some angry feelings. … More Kdrama Podcast: Be initially charmed and then driven totally insane by WARM AND COZY

I avoided this drama forever because…. well, golf. Yuck. But as it turns out it is a zany, over acted (in a totally cute way) madcap romantic comedy, with some really utterly fun and gorgeous characters and the age old story of an enormous huge bratty rich man and a shouty tiny pint-sized poor girl with debt. And you know what? I adored it! But be warned. It is very silly. … More KOREAN DRAMA REVIEW: Invincible Lee Pyung Kang
