Story is about the girl Jang Geum who wants to be a cook. She gets accepted as a palace servant. Clever and cheerful Jang Geum quickly finds friends. But all to soon she encounters intrigue and corruption.
Dae Jang Guem is about a girl who tries to follow her dream as a chef and her journey towards achieving it. Though this story features a lot of cooking, it is by no means a cooking show. I would relate this anime closely to the likes of Utawarerumono, in that, it is an adventure.
This anime is literally a cultural ride through feudal Korea. From the art concepts to the music, the anime allows you to fully immerse into the era in which Janggeum lives.
The story and the character development in this anime are both pretty solid. You definitely see the MC and
the other supporting characters grow by the end of the show. Surprisingly enough, there wasn't a time where I felt that a characteristic of the show was being played out. I would agree though that it seemed like the MC had continuous bad luck when she needed it most but I felt it was tolerable. The plot changed where it was supposed to and for the most part, the show wasn't totally predictable.
Overall, I enjoyed this anime and would suggest it to someone who was looking for a relaxed, yet good story.
This is my first review, I'll do my best. Also, I watched it in 2005 or 2006, when I was a child, this is one of my first anime series I've seen.
Let's start with the story. JUST LET ME TELL YOU: It's not all about COOKING, this anime is more than that, and I freely recommend it to boys and girls.
The story is about Jang Geum and her adventures in the Emperor's Palace, cooking delicious food, and making people happy with it. She's talented and smart, friendly and cheerful making good friends.
But that's not all! Jang Geum is a girl with courage and
this is a reason for big problems...
As the story goes on, you'll discover more and more information about the characters - their story and personality. They're all unique, and I'm sure you'll love it!
It's a Korean-Japanese anime, so the art is different. It could be better in my opinion, but it's very good just the way it is. But the art goes better in the episodes, so you don't have to worry about it!
I would give it 10, but if it was just the original Korean opening and ending. The Japanese original ending and opening, in my opinion are just pointless.
Every character, as I said is unique! They all have their own story and great personality, and this is a big plus for the show.
I really enjoyed watching Jang Geum's dream. It has great story, art, sound and most important for me - characters. It was worth watching it!
I think you really have to watch it, because you'll see great stuff!
This is my first review I've written but I'll try my best. I haven't finished this but i already love it. This story has a light hearted feel yet it gets deeper the more you watch. I love this story because the main character is not weak. Even though those were rough times for the poor and women, she didn't let it hinder her. She's very bright and hardworking.
The animation is great too. Although you can tell it differs from the norm anime. It has korean style. Witch isn't bad, it's refreshing. I also think the music is adorable. It has a very good
