MBC TV series "Pasta" made a proud exit from the small screen yesterday, scoring the highest ratings the show has ever seen during its 20-episode airing.
According to daily statistics released by research firms TNS Media Korea and AGB Nielsen Media Research, "Pasta" recorded national viewership ratings of 21.5 and 21.2 percent, respectively, for its final episode last night.
The culinary drama, which premiered in Korea on January 4, had started off with ratings around 13 percent and went on to breach the 20 percent mark when KBS2 TV series "Master of Study" ended its run last month.,...More

Han Hye-jin's Song Picks 2010/01/18, Source,
She created a friendly image for herself, playing an energetic, curly-haired young woman in a daily family drama. She then took on the female lead role in a traditional drama, which scored a 50 percent viewership rating. She also experienced failure after appearing in a trendy drama about a professional working woman, which saw low ratings. This is who actress Han Hye-jin is. During a career which could hardly be described as a long one, there are also probably not that many actors who have played such various roles and received such a variety of responses from viewers as Han has. But what makes her so interesting is not just that she has appeared in not-so-easy-to-define dramas in the past. What is important is that she, who has appeared and worked and gone through many experiences, is still working, in the present tense. After SBS drama "Terroir" ended, she took on the role of an intelligent female detective in the film "No Mercy", which recently opened in theaters, and is currently traveling throughout the country to shoot SBS TV series "Jejoongwon". What is even more important is that she who wants to keep working and working.,...More
Actors save lives on set of TV series "Jejoongwon" 2010/01/06, Source, SBS TV series "Jejoongwon" is set during the latter era of the Joseon Dynasty -- a time period never before handled in a Korean drama. It also revolves around Jejoongwon which is the first hospital in South Korea's history to use Western medicine. These elements topped with the collaboration of its scenarist Lee Ki-won, writer of MBC's hit medical series "White Tower", and producer Hong Chang-wook, who garnered a strong fanbase through his SBS drama "The Scale of Providence", leaves little space for hasty presumptions. 10Asia visited the set of "Jejoongwon" a week ahead of its premiere to get a closer look and a better understanding of the medical-historical drama.

A blond man sits at the door of a woman's room. He has an unidentifiable hose-like object stuck in one of his ears. A man sitting next to him says, "A tenth of 30 centimeters down from the neck, then another tenth of 30 centimeters to the left". That is when the woman sitting on the other side of the door starts moving. She places her hand, holding a stethoscope, to the chest of another woman whose jacket is undone. When the woman places the stethoscope to the other woman in accordance with the Korean man's directions, the blond man from the United States gives his diagnose of the patient's presumed illness. This sight where three people -- American and Korean, male and female -- cling to this single lady brought up in a good family, helps us predict what "Jejoongwon" will show its viewers. Such a scene is from times when a married woman from a good family would get beaten up by her husband for reading a book. Yoo Suk-ran (played by Han Hye-jin), who learns English and medicine, plays the friend of such a woman in the drama and will remark, "The King himself said discrimination no longer exists regarding status", although the world has yet to accept freedom of status. The same situation will apply to foreigner Allen (Sean Richard) who has come from the U.S. to spread Western medicine and Hwang Jung (Park Yong-woo) who learns medicine from Allen whilst concealing the he is actually of low status with his occupation as a butcher. That is how "Jejoongwon", through a single scene, portrayed the medicine, the time period and the way people live during such times.,...More

SBS Monday & Tuesday TV series "Jejungwon" Scenarist: Lee Ki-won Producer: Hong Chang-wook Cast: Park Yong-woo, Yeon Jeong-hoon, Han Hye-jin, etc Premieres January 4, 2010 at 10 P.M.
It seems that SBS TV series "Jejoongwon" should lable itself more as a medical drama rather than a historical drama. And it is not just because its scenarist Lee Ki-won had written MBC's hit medical series "White Tower" or because the story revolves around Jejungwon, South Korea's first hospital which used Western medicine during the latter era of the Joseon Dynasty. A video containing a preview of "Jejoongwon" shown at a press conference held Wednesday, focused most of its story on medicine -- a life-long rivalry exists between Yeon Jung-hoon and Park Yong-woo, who play the role of doctors at Jejungwon in the drama, because of several surgical operations which split their fates while one's mother and the other's father are both in situations where they cannot receive proper medical treatment.,...More
All of the casts are amazing. I do like
the acting of Choi Jong-hwan
(최종환) as King
Gojong and Seo I-sook
(서이숙) as Queen
Myeong Seong the most.
Definitely a must watch drama, I love
medical-related drama, the plot is
really good. The merge of
traditional/classic theme with modern
style is really impressive. I don't
know why the ratings are low?!
