"Her life as the first career woman comes under the spotlight out of the long concealed history."


This is a true story of the first female royal physician in the Korean royal house. She starts as an escort in the royal kitchen but thanks to her parent's teachings, she goes on to become the King's personal doctor. She is a real person in Korea's recorded history.

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.

Cast of Characters

Seo, Jang-Geum (Lee, Young-Ae)
She is a beautiful and intelligent girl with a positive attitude. She's haunted by many series of trouble and difficulties yet she overcomes them with the iron-strong will. One day a rebellion breaks out and this brings her separation from her father and even her mother's death.
She enters the royal palace at the age of ten and she puts her heart and soul, finally becoming the best royal cook of her times. One day she falls into a conspiracy and is kicked out from the palace becoming a maidservant. But she doesn't stop here. She studies medicines and re-enters the palace, ultimately becoming the supreme royal physician and also becoming the first woman physician in history to serve the king.

Min, Jung-Ho (Ji, Jin-Hee)
While he was working at a city hall, he encounters Jang-Geum and helps her get a golden pheasant. And this puts him a serious trouble where he even risks his own life. He's an outstanding scholar who combines both learning and the martial arts. He is a learned man with both good looks and high intelligence. He is left a widower soon after marriage, and volunteers to be on night duty which naturally brings him close to Jang-Geum. Admiring Jang-Geum's wisdom and passion for learning, he helps her in many ways and falls in love with her. But his love for Jang-Geum also puts him in a lot of trouble.

Choi, Geum-Young (Hong, Li-Na)
She enters the royal palace with Jang-Geum and becomes her long-time rival. She is an arrogant girl burning with ambitions and uses her beauty as a bait. Despite the disparity in social standing, ever since she was little, she has loved Jung-Ho but her love is never returned. She competes with Jang-Geum to become the best royal cook.

King Joong-Jong (Im, Ho)
He is the 11th king of Chosun Dynasty. He is a very gentle man but extremely irresolute and indecisive. He tries to reform the political system and meets Jang-Geum. He cherishes her warm-hearted nature and many talents. He later loves jang-Geum not as his physician but as a woman.

I'll write up a guide later on how to convert OGM to AVI and then extract the subs... but the bad part is that you'll have to re-convert the audio to MP3 for it to be in AVI. It's a quick process. Takes about 5-10 minutes per episode... depending on your CPU.

Hi,
Anyone know if these OGM encoded files will play on standalone Xvid/Divx players like the Philips DVP 642? It'd be great to burn and play without difficulties, especially with this series.
THanks.

Thanks RuMxZ to the maximus for the rips.

I haven't decided yet if I will be downloading. I'm currently watching 350 mb tvrip of ep 1 (using Philly's subs!) and I'm going to see if I like the show, even though I hear it's the kind where the characters grow on you over many episodes so I may not be able to tell anyway but still.

Thanks again!

I would recommend that you at least watch the first 3 or 4 episodes to get an idea somewhat of the story.

You only see Jang-Geum in ep2 & 3 as a little girl, and finnaly her mature self in ep4 onwards. In the first episode you will meet her parents, and how they met, and the fate of her parents...........

Well, watch it and you'll see. I'm like on episode 7 now, in a way it's addictive. I'm kinda big on this, since I love traditional old fasioned Asian stuff from wayyyy back.

Like, Chinese TVB series are great, and if only more of the series were english subtitled.....

Anyways, I would recommend that people check out the first 4 episodes to tell if they'll like it or not, maybe even 5.... and as this is a loooooong series ~_~

I don't even know how to begin thanking you for your generosity, RuMxZ. I'm sure everyone appreciates your effort in releasing this series. Although I'm not sure if I'm gonna download the series, I sure don't mind waiting for volumes 1 & 2 for a couple of months. :) Thanks for releasing this in OGM format; I prefer it to AVI & separate soft subs.

How could I possibly control my appetite throughout 54 episodes of
epicurian delights? :lol

I'm a little confused. Does Part 1 have 18 episodes or 20? According to YesAsia.com, Part 1 has 20 volumes (or episodes). I know that RuMxZ stated "Volume 1 has been completely released", but I just want to make sure. Anyway, thanks very much RuMxZ for uploading this drama.

Posted: Mar 8th, '05, 19:06
by ay_link
HMM. The Malaysian version does have 20 episodes for Volume 1, but these torrents from RuMxZ releases are actually the MUCH BETTER version ^_^
which is the US Version that has 18 episodes regarding to Yesasia release US Version of Dae Jang Geum :)

and so, US VERSION of Volume 1 torrents have been all released :D thanks bunchies to RuMxZ & aznv.net :D

Volume 2 will be release April 1, and volume 3 will be in May 2nd I believe 8)

When I was re-synching the Malaysian eng subs for the 1st 2 eps, I finally figured out why the Malaysian version had 70 eps but the Korean/US version had only 54 eps. Every Malaysian version episode is only 45 minutes (as opposed to the US version of 1hour/ep)! :lol So technically, if it's 1 hr/episode, the Malaysian release is only 15 episodes :lol :P

and I agree with everyone - so much food in DJG is making me very, very hungry :cry: :lol

I can't tell you how much I'm grateful for this release! Thank you!!! :lol

Gawd, my whole family is enjoying it! :wub: Truly recommend it to everyone. I'm up to episode 5 and I'm liking every bit of it until now. Great acting from the little girl. And the plot is definitively different than the usual than 'two guys love one girl and the girl dies in the end'. And the food is mouthwatering too. Although we do have few korean restaurants in our city, I have never seen those meals served before! :glare:

I'll wait for your teaching on how to convert OGG file into avi. It quite difficult for the whole family to view from our small computer screen lol. 8)

It hasn't been proven that "Seo Jang-geum" was a real figure who did all the stuff in drama. There was someone by the name Jang-geum, but her receiving the title "Dae" from the king is very unlikely.

I dare say, this is one of the best K period drams that I have ever seen. Very deserving of its high ratings.

I found class system interesting too. If you're of a lower class, you're not allowed to learn certain Chinese characters. I wonder how they expect people to move up in the world.

Well, I'm Cambodian... and in the days of the Khmer Rouge, those *astards would kill people for no reason. Like, if you were smart, wore glasses, or are able to read/write and if they would out they would kill you on the spot.

it really depends on everyone else that's also downloading the same episode. i'm really nice when i download, and don't restrict my upload at all, and stay on to seed a bit after i'm done, but not everyone does that.

the theory behind BT is the more people that are downloading the same ep, the more people that are sharing the same ep, and there will be faster D/L speeds. if people don't share though, then, well, it doesn't work as well as it should. i'd be irked too - i just checked the tracker and it looks like there are 12 peers, so you should be going faster than 2k.

we need seeds for the first bunch of epsiodes! stuck at 99.1% for episode 2. :-(

thank you so much for the explanation freesia39 ,

It works quite well now ,.But I still have one more question ,( sorry as I really a beginner for IT) ,

Is it true that I have to wait for 100% until I can open the file to see the film As now I got 30% of it but I can not open the file : File to render the file .

Though I Dled XviD from download.com

Cheers

I will really be better at IT after this . HA HA

@mothai,
Yes you have to wait until 100% and more...until your torrent say complete ortherwise you might not be able to open it or have blotchy pix. By the way you should read support section as there are ways to improve your bt speed ie open port... although all said and done, my bt speed sux but I think it's more due to my phone line and I am on the limit of allowed distance for ADSL.
Welcome aboard and good luck!

I was able to download a few of the episodes in the past 2 days. This morning I found that I had lost connection to all the remaining torrents. I read RuMxZ's message about new updated torrents, but can't get to them. I tried connecting to the torrents on page 1 again and the torrent links at the x-fury site, but can't connect to any of them. How do I get to the new updated torrents? Thanks!

First of all thank you to all the people who do all the hard work to bring us these wonderful shows...I salute YOU. :)


as for download time...mine is like an average of 2 hours for most eps...eps with no seeders take some time....it wasnt always the case though....i had serious wait issues before i learned how to do PORT FORWARDING on my router.....i didnt even know it (ABC) was supposed to be GREEN ideally..........i suffered those dreaded BROWN downloads for many months! can you believe it? yup i was a nitwit......glad i saw the error of my ways...:)
