The remarkable success of the Korean historical soap "Dae Jang Geum (A Jewel in the Palace)" in Hong Kong last year has prompted calls there for the story to be written up for elementary school textbooks.

The Takungpao daily's online edition said Tuesday, "It has now been one year since the end of 'Dae Jang Geum', but the education authorities have still not issued a decision on the inclusion of the 'Janggeum spirit' in school textbooks".

The paper said that spirit was not just for Koreans but something all of humanity must learn, and urged the story to be included in textbooks of fourth and fifth year elementary school students. "The spirit of Janggeum means a straight, tough, diligent mentality and love of learning and creativity while not being arrogant or subservient and is filled with love that shows us never to abandon our goals in life", the daily enthused.

The paper said the story is already being used for instruction in one Hong Kong elementary school.
