Editorial Reviews

Dong Yi follows the tumultuous life of Choi Dong Yi, the water maid who rises to the position of royal consort to King Suk-jong and becomes the mother of the future king, King Young-jo, the twenty-first king of the Joseon Dynasty. Another brilliant masterpiece from famed director Lee Byeong-hun (Jewel in the Palace, Heo Jun, Yi San: Wind in the Palace), Dong Yi is an inspirational tale of hope and triumph of the human spirit. During the Joseon Dynasty, Dong Yi has a peaceful and happy childhood until her father and brother are framed for killing nobles and executed. Determined to clear her family's name, she enters the palace as a servant to find a court lady who could be the key to finding out the truth. With her resilience, persistence and strong sense of justice, she soon gains the favor of King Suk-jong and finds an ally in Queen In-hyeon as she battles the wiles of the devious Jang Hee-bin who will stop at nothing to be queen.

5.0 out of 5 stars Dong Yi February 1, 2011
By HDScoot
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
Another fantastic drama from Korea. I got hooked when seeing Jumong and was not disappointed with Dong Yi either. I first saw it on TV and really looked forward to seeing each episode to sees how she, Dong Yi, would get out of any predicament she found herself in. I think the acting is superb and appreciate the English subtitles (I don't speak Korean). Also, a couple of actors are in this that were in Jumong, but play totally different characters. If you enjoy Korean dramas set in the days of swords and arrows, you should enjoy this one as well. You will also be captivated by the smile of the actress that plays Dong Yi, it always seems sincere and from her heart.

5.0 out of 5 stars Choose Licensed MBC America Release for Best Quality December 13, 2010
For the best audio and video quality with the original broadcast English subtitles, look for 'Studio: MBC America' under Product Details. MBC America is the licensed US distributor for Dong Yi. MBC America works from the original MBC-TV master recordings and hires professional translators for the broadcast subtitles, which are also used for the DVD release. Each episode runs about 60 minutes. Volume 2 contains Episodes 21-40.

A moving historical drama set in the Chosun Dynasty of old Korea, Dong Yi tells the story of a simple maid (Hyo Ju Han) that rises high in the royal court as a consort and ultimately becomes mother of the 21st king of Chosun. Filled with pageantry, romance, adventure and thrilling action, Dong Yi brings ancient Korea to life in this ratings favorite from director Byoung-hoon Lee (Dae Jang Geum).

D. Bannon was the subtitler for the MBC America broadcast and DVD releases of episodes 11-60 of Dong Yi. He discusses subtitling in The Elements of Subtitles, Revised and Expanded Edition: A Practical Guide to the Art of Dialogue, Character, Context, Tone and Style in Subtitling
