S1-21: FLOWER CREW: JOSEON MARRIAGE AGENCY overview
Get kidnapped and forced to become the King of Joseon, only to discover the dude you hired to look after your woman back home is secretly kissing her while you are busy running the country! Today Lee Evie is discussing the upsides and the downsides of love triangles in the 2019 Kdrama FLOWER CREW: JOSEON MARRIAGE AGENCY, starring Kim Min-Jae.  This Korean drama was both more and less romantic than Lee Evie expected, so join her for a discussion to discover what the hell she means by that! For podcasts, Korean drama reviews, and dark romantic historical fiction set in Old Korea, visit Lee Evie's website: www.leeevie.com

S1-20: Waffling on about TUNNEL and THE MOON EMBRACING THE SUN!
Travel forward in time to catch a serial killer and then realise your house is gone, your wife is dead and everyone you ever loved is completely f**ked, because today Lee Evie is discussing the 2017 kdrama TUNNEL, starring Choi Jin-Hyuk. This Korean drama is dark, thrilling and twisty and Lee Evie loved it! She also talks about the 2012 mega-hit fusion sageuk THE MOON EMBRACING THE SUN, starring Kim Soo-Hyun, and the basic plot is this: a sad crying king walks around a palace while everyone screams 'Jeonha' at him all day long ... For podcasts, Korean drama reviews, and dark romantic historical fiction set in Old Korea, visit Lee Evie's website: www.leeevie.com

S1-19: What the f**k even is BEAUTIFUL LOVE WONDERFUL LIFE?! Also let's watch ILLANG: THE WOLF BRIGADE
Be a money hungry social climber and marry a man you don't love, and then be fully surprised that you don't feel very happy (what a shock! how unexpected!), because this week Lee Evie is discussing her first impressions of the completely inappropriately marketed 2019 Korean drama BEAUTIFUL LOVE WONDERFUL LIFE. Her main point of discussion is: what the f**k even is this kdrama? Also, Lee Evie talks about a 2018 Korean movie remake of a 1999 Japanese anime movie, ILLANG: THE WOLF BRIGADE, starring Kang Dong-Won. How are these two things related? Well, they are not. In any way whatsoever. Sorry. For podcasts, Korean drama reviews, and dark romantic historical fiction set in Old Korea, visit Lee Evie's website: www.leeevie.com

S1-18: Historical Kdrama MAIDS overview
Do you like stories about kings and queens, upstanding noblemen and cross-dressing sassy girls? Well too bad, because today Lee Evie is discussing the 2014 Korean drama MAIDS (also known as MORE THAN A MAID), starring Jung Yoo-Mi and Oh Ji-Ho. This kdrama is about the downtrodden slaves and servants of Joseon, and boy do they have it rough! To be honest, this show does feature a king (or two) as well as a hidden illegitimate (sort of) prince so ... Lee Evie guesses you just can't get away from that sort of thing in a sageuk. But that's fine because she loves this Korean drama! For podcasts, Korean drama reviews, and dark romantic historical fiction set in Old Korea, visit Lee Evie's website: www.leeevie.com

S1-17: Ten reasons to love SAVE ME
Join a cult and then get hit in the face with a shovel, because today Lee Evie is discussing the ten reasons to love the mysterious, atmospheric and disturbing 2017 Kdrama SAVE ME, also known sometimes as RESCUE ME. Seriously, cults, creeps and Woo Do-Hwan; what else does a Korean drama even need? Also starring the ever earnest Taecyeon and the fragile yet powerful Seo Ye-Ji, this Kdrama was addictive and (almost) perfect, so come and hang out with Lee Evie as she shouts at you to go watch it already!!!

S1-16: JUSTICE Kdrama overview
Sell your soul to the devil in return for vengeance, and then change your mind seven years later, because today on the show Lee Evie is discussing the slick 2019 Korean drama JUSTICE, starring Choi Jin-Hyuk and Nana. If you are in the mood for some murky moral grey areas, some twisty plots and a complete psycho-killer of a villain, then you have definitely come to the right place! So strap in and enjoy this Kdrama show! For podcasts, Korean drama reviews, and dark romantic historical fiction set in Old Korea, visit Lee Evie's website: www.leeevie.com
