The saga of "The Great Jang Geum" continues in Dae Jang Geum Volume 2 (Episodes 19-36)! An extended historical drama set in 16th century Korea, Dae Jang Geum tells the story of real-life historical figure Jang-Geum, an apprentice cook who rose to untold prominence in the Emperor's Court.

Jang-Geum (Lee Young-Ae of Joint Security Area) continues to endure the daily trials of life in the royal household. The Kitchen Ladies battle over hierarchy and preferential treatment from the Emperor, and the factional struggles over kitchen affairs become vicious - and even murderous! But even in this hostile world, the virtuous Jang-Geum manages to prevail with wisdom, integrity, and love.

During its initial television run, Dae Jang Geum garnered a record 54% ratings share - and the series proved equally popular abroad, too! With amazing plot twists, powerful themes of good vs. evil, and a captivating subplot of forbidden love, it's no surprise that Dae Jang Geum has touched audiences worldwide.

Jang-Geum's story concludes in Dae Jang Geum Volume 3 (Episodes 37-54). All three volumes are beautifully subtitled in both English and Chinese.
