The story of Suh, Jang-geum, who struggles in life begins with being the child of fugitives, to being a Court Lady of the Royal Kitchen, to becoming the first Female Royal Physician. This show that could be shown on the Soap Opera Channel, History Channel, Food Channel, and Medical Channel at the same time! This is based on a REAL character in Korean History. Written by
This is the best thing I have ever seen for the big screen or small screen. It is a semi-historical costume drama depicting the life of Jang Geum, a Korean girl/woman/lady of the 15th century. If you are partial to long, involving stories, I think you will like it too. Although it is episodic in nature, it is important to see it sequentially from the beginning to appreciate the story to the fullest. This story is shamelessly sentimental at times, but pulls it off very well. There are no special effects worth mentioning, no sex, no graphic violence and no snappy dialog. In short, this would never be made for U.S.A. viewing. In spite of this, I am sure that it will find a loyal audience. With so many movies and television shows being made according to formula, it is refreshing to see something that is counter-formula and done so well.
