S5-96: SO I MARRIED AN ANTI-FAN overview
Throw a shoe at a man and then vomit on the floor ... and then ask him to do a reality tv show with you! This week on the podcast, Lee Evie is chatting about the fun madness that is the 2021 fluffy rom-com SO I MARRIED THE ANTI-FAN. This one stars Choi Tae-joon and Sooyoung, and was filmed back in 2018, but only released in 2021, and it feels very tropey, a little old-fashioned ... and weirdly freaking addictive for Lee Evie. She enjoyed this so much! Visit Lee Evie's Patreon to support the show and for extra episodes: https://www.patreon.com/LeeEvie

S5-91: RIVER WHERE THE MOON RISES overview

This week on the show, Lee Evie is chatting about the 2021 historical kdrama RIVER WHERE THE MOON RISES, which stars the gorgeous Kim So-hyun, wonderful Na In-woo and a whole bunch of other people. This sageuk is sweepingly epic, tragically romantic, and quite grand in scale.

S3-71: 2020 kdrama in review!
In 2020, Lee Evie watched doctors play tunes (HOSPITAL PLAYLIST),  two dramas about small business entrepreneurs, which is a lot more fun than it sounds! (START UP and ITAEWON CLASS). She watched two detectives get sucked into multiple parallel worlds (TRAIN and THE KING: ETERNAL MONARCH) and one gothic fairytale about the most gorgeous people on earth (IT'S OKAY TO NOT BE OKAY). She also watched precisely one (WTF dramaland????) sageuk Korean drama that aired in 2020. Which is outrageous! Historical kdrama is Lee Evie's favourite! How could there have been so few new shows in 2020? Blurg. Also, Lee Evie watched a whole boatload of other shows too! Whoah.

This week, Lee Evie is chatting about the intriguing 2020 Korean drama THE SCHOOL NURSE FILES, which stars Jung Yu-mi and Nam Joo-hyuk.

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. Charming, very funny, and revolving around Jung Il-woo's perfectly ridiculous performance as an arrogant jerk entertainment CEO, this is an addictive and romantic ride, and Lee Evie loved it!

This week on the show, Lee Evie is talking about a surprisingly cool 2016 Korean mini-drama called ONE MORE TIME, a contemporary fantasy kdrama that starts off dumb and silly, and yet in the end actually holds the answer to the eternal question ... what is the meaning of life?

Be the saddest woman in the world and spend your time listening to your boss breathe (wut?) because this week on the show, Lee Evie is discussing the agonising yet beautiful 2018 kdrama MY MISTER (also known as MY AJUSSI). This slow burn Korean drama stars Lee Sun-Kyun and IU as very very sad people, who connect with each other as a lifeline in a difficult world ... and also there is a heap of corporate espionage in there too! Or something. This is the kind of show you sink into, both heavy and slow, with moments of beauty that shine through the sadness. Lee Evie mostly loved it, but had some hate for a few side characters, so be warned ... there is a little bit of ranting ahead! Visit Lee Evie's Patreon to support the show and for extra episodes: https://www.patreon.com/LeeEvie

Starring Yeo Jin-gu as both the stick-poking mad king of Joseon and his clownish look-alike, as well as the always beautiful Lee Se-young as his very confused queen, this is both a wonderful sageuk filled with secret identities and plot twists, as well as an ethically confusing conundrum.

This kdrama stars the always perfect Yoon Si Yoon, is moody, atmospheric and dark, filled with murders and creepy dopplegangers, and is just so emotionally engaging!

This show is fast-paced, filled with edge of your seat plots and twisty conspiracies, and also features a wonderful performance from Jung Moon-Sung as a despot power craving prince.

This week on the show, Lee Evie is chatting about the 2019 romantic comedy Korean drama THE SECRET LIFE OF MY SECRETARY! What a cute, fluffy and quirky show, with a charm factor that belies its simple premise and plot. This kdrama is definitely not rocket science, but if you are in the mood for something silly and fun, this is a surprisingly solid little show that really hits the spot! Visit Lee Evie's Patreon to support the show and for extra episodes: https://www.patreon.com/LeeEvie

Grab a lip balm, a mad futuristic face care mask, a cool sports car, a foundation stick, a ziplock kimchi bag and a whole heap of BBQ fried chicken, because this week Lee Evie is discussing one of the most anticipated kdramas of 2020, THE KING: ETERNAL MONARCH.

Grab your best friends and tackle life with enthusiasm and zest ... or alternatively, get bullied relentlessly and fall in love with a street thug, because this week on the show Lee Evie will be discussing both the 2019 romantic ensemble kdrama MELO IS MY NATURE (also known as BE MELODRAMATIC), as well as the 2020 award-winning Chinese movie BETTER DAYS, described as a melodrama crime romance.  The Korean drama of the week is fun, fluffy, quirky and an achingly moving portrait of grief (oh my gosh!) and the random Chinese movie Lee Evie is covering (even though this is a kdrama podcast! WTF!) is a slow-burn exploration of adolescent bullying and two broken people discovering a lifeline in each other (SWOON!). Lee Evie recommends both!

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.
