S1-48: Tense, thrilling and stylish Korean movie TIME TO HUNT
Live in a frighteningly familiar and broken near-future and attempt the heist of a lifetime, only to become caught in a life and death hunt that will chill you to your bones, because this week Lee Evie is focusing on the 2020 Korean movie TIME TO HUNT. Starring wonderful actors Lee Je-Hoon, Choi Woo-Shik and Ahn Jae-Hong, this is a tense thriller with loads of atmosphere that will have you on the edge of your seat! For podcasts, Korean drama reviews, and dark romantic historical fiction set in Old Korea, visit Lee Evie's website: www.leeevie.com.

S1-47: Watch MR SUNSHINE and die a little bit inside from sadness
Be a f**king badass tragic Korean samurai called Gu Dong-Mae and use your badass tragic Korean samurai powers to completely destroy Lee Evie's heart, break her soul and leave her in a small sobbing heap on the floor, because this week Lee Evie is discussing the incredible (and gut-wrenching) 2018 Korean drama MR SUNSHINE. Starring massive movie star Lee Byung-Hun, and other high profile actors Kim Tae-ri,  Kim Min-Jung, Byun Yo-Han and the (for Lee Evie anyway) scene stealing Yoo Yeon-Seok, this kdrama is a beautiful and thoughtful historical epic, set in one of the saddest and most tragic periods of Korean history.  This drama is epic on so many levels, and fair warning, there will be some Gu Dong-Mae fan-girling ahead! For podcasts, Korean drama reviews, and dark romantic historical fiction set in Old Korea, visit Lee Evie's website: www.leeevie.com (FYI: there is a little bit of swearing on this show, be warned!!)

S1-46: OH MY GHOST overview
Get possessed by a crazy ghost, fall in love with a horrible arrogant chef, and then speak really quietly for an entire drama, because this week Lee Evie is discussing her complicated feelings about the 2015 Korean supernatural romance/comedy OH MY GHOST. Starring Park Bo-Young, Cho Jung-Seok and the always great Kim Seul-Gi, this drama was good, but for very personal reasons, Lee Evie also thought it was bad. Be warned, she didn't totally love this one! For podcasts, Korean drama reviews, and dark romantic historical fiction set in Old Korea, visit Lee Evie's website: www.leeevie.com.

Be a super cool night messenger whose only weekness is lurrrve, because this week Lee Evie is discussing her adoration for the 2015 kdrama HEALER, which stars Ji Chang Wook and Park Min Young.

S1-44: QUEEN INHYUN'S MAN overview
Be the smartest coolest man on the planet and travel forward three hundred years through time to win your woman's heart, while also saving a queen, your country and the world (probably!), because this week Lee Evie is discussing the remarkable 2012 Korean drama QUEEN INHYUN'S MAN (also known as QUEEN AND I), which stars Ji Hyun Woo and Yoo Inna. This kdrama starts out as a fluffy fantasy romance yet soon morphs into something much deeper, an achingly beautiful portrayal of star-crossed lovers and a romance that transcends time, space and even death itself. Wow! For podcasts, Korean drama reviews, and dark romantic historical fiction set in Old Korea, visit Lee Evie's website: www.leeevie.com.

S1-43: Laugh and shudder along with PSYCHOPATH DIARY!
Are you a downtrodden office worker with nothing to live for? Well, why not try being a serial killer instead? That's what Yoon Shi Yoon does in the 2019 comedy-thriller Korean drama PSYCHOPATH DIARY, and boy does he do a good job of it. He is hilarious, adorable and damn creepy! Lee Evie feels complicated about this kdrama, it is both excellent and a little bit boring, so come discuss it with her! FYI – this is a first impressions episode!

S1-42: ITAEWON CLASS overview
Be the absolute best man in the entire universe and swear ultimate revenge against a food company ... and then go and make ... your own food company ... really slowly ... over many years? So the 2020 kdrama ITAEWON CLASS sure sounds like a silly story, but this week Lee Evie discusses what makes it work for her, including the wonderful performance by Park Seo Joon. This Korean drama is of the tried and tested underdog trope variety, yet is elevated into something interesting, emotional and fresh by a central hero who captured Lee Evie's heart. Sigh. For podcasts, Korean drama reviews, and dark romantic historical fiction set in Old Korea, visit Lee Evie's website: www.leeevie.com

S1-41: KINGDOM season 2 overview
Love the idea of the whole world being destroyed by zombies? Well great, because this week Lee Evie is discussing the thrilling second season of the big-budget production 2020 Kdrama KINGDOM, starring Joo Ji-Hoon and Bae-Doona (among a slew of recognisable faces!). This season is exciting, bad-arse, fast-paced and quite short, complete at only six episodes. It's got action, horror, death, political plotting and super fast scary zombies! Everything a person needs. :) For podcasts, Korean drama reviews, and dark romantic historical fiction set in Old Korea, visit Lee Evie's website: www.leeevie.com

S1-40: Being silly with HIT THE TOP!
Be a tragic boy-band star from the 90s and then time travel into the future and fall in love with your son's girlfriend (what?!), because this week on the podcast Lee Evie is ignoring all things virus related and instead discussing the very silly and fun 2017 Kdrama HIT THE TOP (also known as THE BEST HIT). This show has a pretty twisted mystery at its heart, and a whole lot of hijinks, petty jealousy, dance numbers and complicated romance to enjoy, the perfect show to make you happy!  It also stars the always wonderful Yoon Shi-Yoon and beautiful Lee Se-Young.

S1-39: Tempted overview
Become waaaay too embroiled in your parent's love lives while immersing yourself in completely avoidable misery, and then scream and cry when it all backfires, because this week Lee Evie is discussing the bonkers (yet strangely addicting?) 2018 Korean drama known as TEMPTED or sometimes as THE GREAT SEDUCER (which is honestly the dumbest name ever!). Starring a group of indescribably gorgeous people, including Woo Do-Hwan, Joy, Moon Ga-Young and Kim Min-Jae, this kdrama is about rich broken teens who keep making everything worse by acting like tiny small children. It's also a weirdly satisfying show! In this episode, Lee Evie talks about what she liked, what she didn't, and the overall cringe factor of this drama!

S1-38: Sweet, dark and emotional with PAGE TURNER!
Get into a car accident and go blind, and then spend your time alternating between playing the piano and screaming at Ji-Soo, because this week on the podcast Lee Evie is talking about the 2016 Korean drama PAGE TURNER. Starring the always beautiful Kim So-Hyun and the absolute goof Ji-Soo (seriously, Ji-Soo is such a goof in this show!), this drama is a beautiful and tender look at dreams ... and what to do when they come crashing down. Do you pursue your dream anyway, just because you love it, or do you find a new dream to replace the old one? This is a Kdrama with thought-provoking themes and positive messages, and is funny, silly and emotionally moving. And at only 3 episodes, it is most definitely worth your time!

Lee Evie's latest Korean historical fiction novel A SONG FOR LONELY WOLVES is being unleashed upon the world this week, so she is here to talk about the Korean history, as well as the Korean drama (DAMO) and movies (THE WAILING and THE DUELIST) that inspired her to write this historical detective story, set in Joseon Korea in 1590. For podcasts, Korean drama reviews, and dark romantic historical fiction set in Old Korea, visit Lee Evie's website: www.leeevie.com

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

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

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
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!

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

Get stabbed in the belly multiple times with a sword and cough up some blood, but then be totally fine in every way, because this week on the podcast Lee Evie is discussing one of her favourite 2019 Korean dramas MY COUNTRY: THE NEW AGE.

Oh ... and it is also a drama in which every major character walks around literally covered from head to toe in blood. Did Lee Evie mention this drama was bloody? Because it is bloody.

Don't like that Kdrama ending? Write your own!!

Join Lee Evie today as she celebrates the publishing of her Kdrama inspired novel PROMISE SEASON, about a young gisaeng slave girl who is forced to become a spy for a shady political conspiracy during Korea's Joseon dynasty. This novel was very directly inspired by GU FAMILY BOOK, and Lee Evie also discusses the aspects of this Korean drama she loved and hated, and the history behind the national Korean hero, Lee Soon-Shin (also written as Yi Sun-Sin), who appears in this drama. For podcasts, Korean drama reviews, and dark romantic historical fiction set in Old Korea, visit Lee Evie's website: www.leeevie.com

S1-24: Falling in love with THE TALE OF NOKDU

You go girl, Dan-Oh, the heroine of my heart! Come discuss the zingy, funny, sweet (and surprisingly clever) 2019 youth romance Korean drama EXTRAORDINARY YOU, where the boys are tall, the girls are dying from inexplicable comic illnesses, and you could literally disappear at any moment.

This was the sixth instalment in the very popular 'School' Kdrama series and is one of Lee Evie's favourite Korean dramas of all time, probably only because she boarded the correct ship in the love triangle. Listen as she discusses her ten reasons to adore this drama, the power of a love triangle done right, and Kim So-Hyun's utter perfection.

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

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
