Lovely Jewel in the Palace
No it wasn't some spoof to make fun out of the Koreanovela. It was more of a general feature on Korean culture: food, costumes, martial arts and herbal medicine.
Since we were short on actors, the staff ended up acting for the different bit parts.
Shao was cast as the scheming Madame villain and I was her assistant.
Well, actually they said I looked more like a concubine.
But I didn't want to be a concubine. Not when the king looks as
scary stern as him.
The three servants had to make sure he was well taken cared of.
But behind her smiles, the scheming Madame Shao was out to destroy the king. She was able to fool the servants and the palace guards.
Maybe partly because we were too busy taking pictures, we forgot to keep close watch on what's happening in the palace.
So poor Bei-bei was accused of poisoning the King and no one can do anything to protect her. She was handed down a death sentence.
What happens to the palace?
Watch the drama unfold in Lovely Day, Saturday, December 10 on GMA 7.
