A Jewel in the Palace / Dae Jang Geum / 대장금 / 大长今

Aired Date: 
September 15 2003 - March 23 2004
Personal Review: 
9 / 10

Synopsis: Palace girl, Jang Geum is an extraordinary character mentioned in numerous scripts during the Joseon dynasty in Korea. Although fictionalized, as she derived from palace girl to soon-to-be medical doctor, the story represents immense courage and determination through hardship - false accusations by her opponents were used in turn for her downfall in success within the palace itself.
