Jewel in the Palace: Episode 3 Commentary

It looks like putting Jang-Geum at age eight, the same as her actress would have been at the time of filming, was right. Two years later, Jang-Geum is remarked to be a 10 year old child. And yet her teeth haven’t grown in any over the past two years.

Hour long episodes are difficult to write anything about because so many things happen. I can’t remember it all by the end of the episode!

This episode was one full of surprises for me, both because of my knowledge of the animated series, and within Jewel in the Palace itself.


Jewel in the Palace: Episode 1 Commentary

Back when I bought Janggeum’s Dream, I did so because I remembered being recommended the series at one time. The only thing I knew about it was that it featured “a young girl who wanted to be a cook in a castle” or something like that. When it comes to Jewel in the Palace, I was again going in not knowing what I’d be seeing. The difference this time is that I had a background of the characters from the animated spin-off. I put my trust in the animation that the original drama would be worth watching. Furthermore, by watching Jewel in the Palace, I hope to have any unresolved information in the first series of the animation to be revealed. Actually, the only thing I’m still in the dark on is what happened to Janggeum’s mother, and what the origin behind Janggeum’s purse is, and there’s no guarantee the purse will even appear in the original drama.
