Jewel In The Palace

So the legend I will always love was born. Dae Jang Geum, sometimes known as The Great Jang Geum, or Jewel In The Palace, is a 2003 TV series produced by South Korean TV channel MBC. Dae Jang Geum was shown by GMA Network in the Philippines under the title Jewel in The Palace and is rated as the highest rating Korean novela in primetime from November 2005 to March 2006. I consider myself lucky to have seen it, though that was not enough with me that I had to make ways to have my own copy of the show DVD. The drama is full-packed with emotions, beautiful culture, history, royal cooking, native medicine and a very inspiring love story and rise of a legendary girl(Jang-Geum) who became the first woman to be the supreme royal physician of her times, when Korea boasted a rigidly hierarchical and male dominated social structure. All aspects were beautifully balanced. Even how many times I watch it, it still has the same effect on me, just so beautiful. The soundtrack is one reason why it is so successful. The fusion of Korean and Western music produces a uniquely mystical sound, without alienating those who may not enjoy traditional Korean music. Below is the making of the DJG soundtrack. Isn't it nice?
