Editorial Reviews

A historical drama based on a true story, Dae Jang Geum tells the tale of Jang-Geum, the first woman to become the King's personal physician. In a time when women held little influence in society, young apprentice cook Jang-Geum (Lee Young-Ae of Joint Security Area and One Fine Spring Day) strives to learn the secrets of Korean cooking and medicine in order to cure The King of his various ailments. But palace intrigue and politics impede Jang-Geum, as her fellow ladies compete to earn the King's favor and secure the top female positions in the Royal Kitchen. But Jang-Geum is far from ordinary. With her remarkable determination and wisdom, she takes on even greater odds, challenging numerous foes and even society to achieve a position never-before-held by a woman in Korean history!

And the English subtitles in this product are just dreadful.

The Jewel in the Palace is a wonderful story with some unforgettable people, sets, costumes and locations.
Little Dorrit
Yet, it teaches some of the most valuable lessons in life one could learn vicariously, even for adults.

If you've ever enjoyed a Masterpiece Classic like Upstairs Downstairs you might want to give this gem of a series a try. The Jewel in the Palace is a wonderful story with some unforgettable people, sets, costumes and locations. It is easy to see why this series was so popular it has even inspired a theme park, you really become immersed in 16th century Korea and life from peasants to the palace. If you have any interest in cooking you'll particularly love the scenes in the palace kitchens. You'll hate the villains and love the heroine and her hero. There is even some martial art action from time to time, some comic relief and lots of nail biting tension.

Be warned, it is addictive! At 54 episodes you'll find that at half way through it you are saying, I can't go to bed till I see what happens next.

The English subtitles are translated from Chinese. The Chinese are translated from Korean. Therefore there are significant difference in the names and dialog. My father who is from Korea could not stand watching it with our family as he felt all the subtitles were wrong.

Story line and the actors were brilliant, but the quality of ALL the action (fighting) scenes were blurry. Quite disappointing. Had these were recorded skill fully it would have worth the money.

The quality of the picture was just about perfect- not the issue.
But, my main issue and why I returned this boxed set is that the English subtitles are NOT good.
I watched the first series from Netflix but it only went up to Episode 16.
The English subtitles were great.
They made sense & you were given enough time to read the lines.
I wish I had read the reviews on this one as other customers said the translation was from Chinese not Korean and it was awful- and it was.
There was no way I could understand this great drama.

A wonderful history of the first lady doctor for the Korea empire. I would reccomend this series to anyone who has an interest in Korean history.

I've been buying books and products from Amazon for over 15 years, and have been a Prime member since that program started. In all those years, I've never bought a worse product. If I could give it negative 5 stars I would. Don't get me wrong. This series is the most enjoyable, well done drama I've ever watched. Food, Asian medicine, history, beautiful scenery and costumes, great plot. Fantastic. This product however is horrible. It looks like a 4th generation knock off, blurry, pixelated, and menus that do not work reliably. If you watch this series online, you'll see what it should look like. And the English subtitles in this product are just dreadful. You need to translate the subtitles into English. They are beyond bad. I find it hard to believe that the producers of this excellent series, with such attention to detail, would allow such a shoddy product to be sold. I am frankly suspicious of its authenticity and legality. Do not purchase this product, you will be sorely disappointed.

This is a great and dramatic movie to remember. This movie is worth buying because of its foods, arts, actors, and backgrounds. I also enjoyed the fighting. The actors seem like they are really in the moment. This series inspired me to study more about the Korean Language. It didn't only inspire me to study about the history of Korea (like how it became a country, how they came up with their write system, and how Korea was divided into North Korea and South Korea) but also how started, and it how it was craved and worked on as time went on (and one of the things they have improved on dramatically as time passed is their food, man it is good!).
The series is about an orphan, Dae Jang Geum, which lost her parents when she was the age of 6. Before the mother died, she set goals for her daughter, but the main goal was to become the Highest Court Lady. The orphan sets off to an adventure to fulfill her goal and on the way, she learn some very important life lessons. It is a movie that tells about life in Korea in the 16th century and how anyone can change history forever.
This series is one of the most addictive series I have ever watched before. This is a have-to-watch kind of movie and it is seriously worth it.

Beautiful natural scenery, colorful costumes, endearing characters well acted, charming adorable child actors melt your heart, and an alluring love story. Also stimulating and enlightening references to healthy food eating and herbal medicine use. Very easy to stay stuck to your seat, hard to stop at one episode, you just want to keep on watching till you drop. I loved this series.
