LOL, Kathleen. You know what, though, I think it was fun a lot of the time. For instance, much of the interaction between the young girls was very lighthearted, and many of JG's relationships with other women were full of camaraderie and joy (when terrible things were not happening, of course...). Not to mention JG's adoptive parents, they provided a lot of comic relief. Any time you heard JG laughing, and you did a LOT, it was usually very fun to watch. Also, the very way the drama was written, how well everything fit together, provided a delightful (say, "fun") experience.
From Dae Jang-geum: Sun-dol: "Are you trying to dry me up and kill me? Why do you say the same things over and over every day? Rather, come and hit me once! Aigu!" But then: Dr. Lazarus: "By Grabthar's hammer, by the suns of Warvan... You shall be avenged."
I haven't visited this board for such a long time! ;D There are alot of posts to catch up on!
At the moment Dae Jang Geum is airing in Turkey. Quite a few of the visitors to my Dae Jang Geum blog are from Turkey. Also, I heard DJG was really successful in Iran.
Did you know Dae Jang Geum has now aired in 60 countries? I've written some articles on my Dae Jang Geum blog about the success of Dae Jang Geum around the world. DJG was even shown in Zimbabwe and other African countries last year!
Hopefully one day, Dae Jang Geum will be shown in the UK too! ;D ;D
