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!
