Assalamualaikum pretty ladies!
So today, I'm starting the post a little differently by reviewing a drama, I know I'm not a good critic for dramas and movies, but I love to show my opinions about it and also to tell you what I like or dislike in these kind of things, I'm a big fan of Korean dramas especially historical dramas.
"About 500 years ago during the time of Chosun Dynasty, Korea boasted a rigidly hierarchical and male dominated social structure. Set in this period, "Jewel in the Palace" is based on a true story about a legendary girl (Jang Geum) who became the first woman to be the supreme royal physician of her times. Despite her poor condition as a low class girl in the male dominated society, Jang Geum overcame a series of social discrimination and landed herself as a royal cook, later becoming the royal physician, then ultimately the physician in charge of the king. She was even given by the king the title "The Great Jang Geum." The story of her checkered life on her success and breakdown as well as her love story beautifully unfold. "Jewel in the Palace" is sure to touch your heart"
I've seen this drama before when I was an adolescent, at that time, I wasn't interested in this drama but I did follow up a few of the episodes. After a few years, when I remembered about this movie, I tried to find it as I do want to find out the ending and better yet, I want to see it from the beginning, I tried to download it from torrent as I am no big fan of direct downloading, as Brunei is more notoriously known for having a very slow internet speed.
So I didn't really manage to find the torrent, but then my friend who has a business in finding this kind of thing, has Dae Janggeum! What else can I do except to take it from him, of course with permission! LOL.
So anyways, for each episode, you have an hour and a few minutes worth of episodes and this drama has a total of 54 episode, so there's around 60-70 hours spent to watch. LOL. But all in all, this is a drama that is worth watching, it's very interesting finding out about their culture in the past, also the lifestyle.
I find the actors are very good in what they're doing as they are able to make the audience create emotions of whatever scene they make, the villains, I found to be very hateful, very annoying that it felt like I want to slap the villain's face a few time.
Although, I find the heroin is very soft-spoken, I wish my voice is like that, but no, I have a harsh voice, though many people said that I have an angelic soft-spoken voice but with a sharp tongue. LOL!
So anyways, the storyline is very flaw-less, there are a few of the storyline that doesn't really make sense, but overall I really enjoy watching this, I even go for a second round watching this drama.
Out of 5, I could give this 4.78.
A must watch!
