YANGJU, South Korea - The entrance to the Daejanggeum Theme Park offers a view of the king's residence, or "Daejeon." The theme park located in the MBC Culture Valley in Yangju pays tribute to the mini-series "Daejanggeum," or Jewel in the Palace, which aired on television between Sept. 15, 2003 and March 23, 2004. The mini-series was based on a historical figure - the first and only woman to serve as the head physician to the king during the Joseon Dynasty in the 15th Century.
