    S1-35: Tropes, cheese and Kdrama obsession with DRAMAWORLD!

    S1-35: Tropes, cheese and Kdrama obsession with DRAMAWORLD!

    Do you want to get sucked inside your phone and end up starring in your favourite Korean drama? Of course you do! And so does Claire, the American lead of the charming, silly and funny 2016 show DRAMAWORLD. Join Lee Evie as she discusses how refreshing it is to watch a (sort of) Korean drama that has clearly been specifically made with the non-Korean Kdrama fan in mind, and how awesome it was when Claire pretends to fall over only to have Woo Do Hwan swoop out of nowhere to save her!

    S1-34: ROOKIE HISTORIAN GOO HAE-RYUNG overview

    S1-34: ROOKIE HISTORIAN GOO HAE-RYUNG overview

    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). For podcasts, Korean drama reviews, and dark romantic historical fiction set in Old Korea, visit Lee Evie's website: www.leeevie.com

    S1-33: LET'S EAT 2 and THE GHOST BRIDE (hang on! That show isn't Korean!)

    Marry a ghost and then sensuously eat a lot of kimchi, because this week on the podcast Lee Evie is discussing two dramas! Catch some serious food envy with the 2015 kdrama foodie romance LET'S EAT 2, starring Yoon Doo-joon and Seo Hyun-jin, a story about a man who likes both his pretty neighbour and his food, quite a lot. And then on her brand new podcast segment called — Hang On A Minute! That Isn't Even Korean! This Is An Outrage!—Lee Evie is discussing the 2020 historical fantasy Chinese drama THE GHOST BRIDE, based on the fantastic book by Yangsze Choo! For podcasts, Korean drama reviews, and dark romantic historical fiction set in Old Korea, visit Lee Evie's website: www.leeevie.com

    S1-32: Enjoy the kdrama sweetness of LET'S FIGHT GHOST!

    Spend your time fighting ghosts, only to (plot twist!) fall in love with one instead, because this week Lee Evie is discussing the 2016 comedy-romance supernatural Korean drama LET'S FIGHT GHOST. Join the always charming Kim So-hyun and Taecyeon as they battle evil spirits, inevitable heartache and *swoon* their growing attraction. This show is basically built on the charming romantic chemistry between the leads, and is sugar sweet escapism ... with some scary ghosts thrown in for good measure!

    S1-31: Ten reasons to love BETWEEN LOVERS

    S1-31: Ten reasons to love BETWEEN LOVERS

    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!

    S1-30: A KOREAN ODYSSEY, WHEN THE CAMELLIA BLOOMS and THE BRIDE OF HABAEK a first episode challenge!

    Grab a monkey, some soju and a water god, because now it is first episode challenge time! This is a brand new thing Lee Evie just invented, which involves her watching some first episodes and then, you know, talking about them and stuff. How challenging! This week she tackles the 2017 fantasy romance THE BRIDE OF HABAEK (in which actors she really likes, Nam Joo-Hyuk and Shin Se-Kyung, both seem to forget how to move their faces), the 2018 fantasy romance A KOREAN ODYSSEY, also known as HWAYUGI (in which Lee Seung-gi prances around like the rockstar monkey god he truly is) and finally the 2019 modern romance WHEN THE CAMELLIA BLOOMS (in which Gong Hyo-jin and Kang Ha-Neul live quiet domestic lives and also battle serial killers apparently). For podcasts, Korean drama reviews, and dark romantic historical fiction set in Old Korea, visit Lee Evie's website: www.leeevie.com
