Im in love with the Korean drama series "Jewel In The Palace” <3 <3 <3~!!!!
And I’m also in love with Ji Jin Hee :))..my favourite idol now..yuppie..the handsome guy in my new layout is him~!!!aaawwwhhh..isn’t he soooooooooooooooo darn good-looking??hee..he is the main reason why I got obsessed watching dis great show..
"Jewel In The Palace”is based on a true story about a legendary (Jang-Geum) who became the first women to be the supreme physician of her times.
Jang-geum is the daughter of a former judicial officer-turned butcher (the lowest social class) who lives in hiding after being expelled from the royal palace and a former court lady working in the royal kitchen who narrowly escaped death following a murderous conspiracy planned by Court Lady Choi. As a young child, Jang-geum loses both parents and enters the royal palace in the kitchen. In the royal kitchen, she spends a harsh childhood in continuous competition with Choi Geum-yeong Under the protection and tutelage of Court Lady Han, Jang-geum makes every effort to become the best cook in the palace. Her endeavors enable her to become a recognized cook; but Lady Choi and her faction, jealous of the success of Lady Han and Jang-geum, plot a conspiracy, which leads to the death of Lady Han and Jang-geum's expulsion from the royal palace. Jang-geum is relegated to the position of maidservant for the local government office on Jeju-do Island. While in exile, Jang-geum learns medicine. Through native intelligence and patient efforts, she earns her reputation as a woman doctor on the island. After a time, she returns to the palace, where she is recognized by the king and becomes the royal physician and also the first female physician in history to serve the king. The king falls in love with her, but she cannot return his love, as she is already in love with Min Jung-Ho>(played by the hunk Ji Jin Hee~!!!!), who has stood by her side during the most difficult times.
