Unfortunately this particular edition is let down by poor subtitles. In the 1-6 discs the subtitles are understandable with some concentration but in discs 7 - 9 the English subtitling is completely unintelligable. An example of this:
"Is, say that is have problems inside the person who the food poisoning. Elephant words too not till the vegetableses that now ate have never type of matter" (transcribed directly)
If you speak Korean Fluently then this single DVD set is a bargain, costing substantially less than the three separate DVD sets of Jewel in the Palace which are available. However if you rely on English subtitles then this DVD set will not meet your expectations.
I know some better sub-titled versions exist, because I've seen snippets on the net. This version ought to be sold as *NOT* having English sub-titles.
