    The Best Show I have Ever Watched. Peroid.
    I was never into subtitled Anime, much less drama, but the storyline was of great interest to me and it received a lot of positive feedback, so I decided to give it a try.

    This show was my very first subtitled T.V. series and I see that as both a blessing and a curse now, because I don't know if there is another show that will be as exceptional as this one. That is my only warning to those who ...

    compelling historical drama
    Set in Korea (Chosun) around 1500. Much of the setting is the royal court palace, and what's around the protagonist, Jang-geum. The focus doesn't go very far from her through most of the storyline. Which is good since she rarely fails to hold interest. The food, dress, and architecture are all good, esp. the food. There is a lot of dialog outdoors and the filming is superb. The court ...

    Stimulating, interesting, and thrilling.
    Witty, clever, amusing, brilliant, and always surprising.

    You may get frustrated from time to time with the brief moments of silence and hesitation, but overall a pleasurable drama that is loosely based on a historical era in the Joseon Dynasty. Most of the characters were real people who sided or went against Jang Geum. However, Lady Choi was more lenient than the real Lady Choi, as the real ...

    Fantastic Historical Drama
    Jewel in the Palace spans 56 episodes and follows the life and tragedy of a woman who rises not once, but twice from the ashes of defeat to become the first female physician to the emperor himself. A storyline filled with twists and intrigue with a satisfying if unexpected ending. The main character is well portrayed by Young Ae Lee and she does an excellent job of building the character of Jang ...

    Obligatory review for an awesome show.
    I don't really want to take the time to explain to you how awesome this series is because it goes through so many phases all of which I could expound on across multiple reviews. Instead I'll just rate it 5 stars to add to the average in hopes that you will take my word for it.

    Worth vegging out and watching for hours!
    I first saw an episode of this at my favorite local Korean restaurant. I recognized Young Ae Lee from Sympathy for Lady Vengeance. When I asked what the name was they told me the Korean name and told me they didn't know the English name so I had to look up Young Ae Lee to find out. lol

    This drama has a lot of twists and turns but I never felt like it was being too drawn out. I feel like if I ...

    Every Part Is Important!
    This is the BEST drama I have watched in my life. The plot is EXTREMELY intricate, people keep appearing in different places, people are connected to people you didnt think they were, things keep changing, lots of plots to frame, kill and destroy, some are thwarted and others are not. The stakes get higher and higher, and when there's trouble and you're sure there's a way out something goes ...

    Great drama based on a real person
    I love how this drama is based on a real (but vague) story about the only physician lady to ever become the King's personal physician. I heard about Dae Jang Geum/jewel in the Palace when it first came out, since it was so popular at the time. I was happy to finally watch it. Great drama! This is the first historical drama I watch--and the longest. I thought it might go stale halfway through, but ...
