The four siblings in the Gung family were named after precious jewels: eldest daughter Bi Chwi (Jade), eldest son San Ho (Coral), second daughter Ryu Bi (Ruby), and the youngest son, Ho Bak (Amber). Like an assortment of beautiful gems, their colours may clash and their sharp edges chip away at each other. Using an analogy of a bowl of rice with assorted ingredients to illustrate the workings of a family, the key to a great dish is using the right balance of ingredients in order to create a good mixture. Assorted Gems tells the story of the different lives of the family members and how they learn from their clashes to find the perfect balance.

  46. 46 : soclose Says:

    Lee Tae Gon is my favourite actor. He is a very smart, handsome and wonderful. He has a good-natured face. He looks very active, cheerful and charming. His actings are very lively and natural. His movements are light, smooth and graceful. The way he speaks is very politely and attractive. He wears decent dresses of different styles. I have watch some films which features Lee Tae Gon as actor.
    Especially, so cute in Dear Heaven, fall in love so much with Wang Mo. I also like in Jewel Bibimbap, love him a lot. He is a wonderful actor who can play his role very well. I think that he is gifted for acting naturally. To me, his most outstanding feature is that he can appeal to the hearts of the audience with his overall acting. I appreciate and admire him pleasant way of acting. He deserves his good reputation. After seeing him so many times in movies, he becomes very close and intimate to me. He is the actor I like to meet and talk. I like to see how he looks and behaves in his everyday life.
    May his good reputation and popularity last for a long time!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  58. 58 : Boris Says Says:

    I loved watching The Jewel Familiy, excellent casting, my best regards to Choi Ah Jin, congratulations to this Girl.

  59. 59 : Bee Says:

    I love the story quite a lot in general.
    But i only finish 39ep.
    I dislike the problem between bi chew,hobak,young guk and kkeut soon.
    I find it really stupid and i pretty much skip through the whole of ep39.

  60. 60 : gingee Says:


  61. 61 : peter Says:

    I really love this korean drama. It makes me laugh and cry. I really like all the cast they really look like a family.

  62. 62 : JD Says:

    After hearing all the positive comments about this drama, the only question I can ask is “Are we drinking the same stuff?”

    Jewel Bibimbap may have started out fine, but the ending was terrible. Kyle and Ruby should’ve ended up together, and so should Kkeut Soon and Ho Bak. Tae Ri also dies needlessly on the way to Kkeut Soon and Ho Bak’s wedding, wrecking what started out as a light-hearted and promising comedy and turning it into a stupid and boring tragedy. In short, watching Jewel Bibimbap ended up being a total waste of time and effort.

  63. 63 : sara Says:

    I totally agree with you Jd. it was totally awful

  64. 64 : Dlk Says:

    I enjoyed this Korean family drama superb acting.

  65. 65 : via Says:

    wow.. thank God I havent finished watching this one, I also hope that Kyle will end up with Ryu Bi, what a mess.. 🙁

  66. 66 : kdrama freak Says:

    Perfect casting and strong story line. Enjoy very much. highly recommended. so when will be Lee Tae Gon next drama?

  67. 67 : Leila Hutchins Says:

    Go Na Eun is Jade? Really? I liked her in this drama but I am watching Goddess of Marriage and I hardly recognized her there. She looks very plain in this drama plus I hate her role. Can’t believe it’s the same person.
