What an amazing experience... we watched a theatrical performance play " Lotus - a flower comes out once more". The story is told with beautiful and splendid music and dances. The performers and their outfits were superb. Not to miss if you're in Seoul.

I attended a performance of "Lotus" last night. It was excellent. The performers are obviously highly trained professionals and the production values were very high as the costumes, lighting and set were really good. The sorcerer's dance and the Queen's struggling with jealousy were amazing....More

I just watched "Lotus" last night. It was so good that my friend and I was really satisfied. The dancer/actors are professionals. The witch's dance with power , beauty, and mystery impressed me most.

Was recommended by a local. However I am disappointed towards Youll. Predictable storyline. Over price for the experience.

(Youll) A short performance with a simple straightforward story, but the acting and performers are fantastic. A good way to spend a few hours during a night in Seoul.

The MISO Show has ended and now playing is Youll. Easy to follow with the English subtitles on one side of the stage. Dramatic lighting, dance, pantomime, contemporary music mixed in with the traditional, and energy of the actors will keep you captivated throughout. Good...More

I enjoyed the Youll show, although I thought it was best suited to a young audience. I had hoped for more traditional dancing and costuming, but this was a traditional story given a modern twist. Easy to follow, with English phrasing on boards at the...More

We saw a flyer for the show Youll at Jeongdong theatre and were apprehensive. Not speaking Korean we were worried we wouldn't have a clue what was going on, but the show itself was very easy to follow - there wasn't a lot of dialogue...More

Walk within this area, centered on what used to be the
western gate of traditional Seoul, and you'll get a
glimpse of Korea’s past through the beautiful and
historic buildings that are scattered throughout.
Whether wandering around Deoksugung’s palace walls or
touring more historically somber sites such as
Seodaemun Prison, this is one of the best places for
culture, architecture, and history lovers. Jeongdong
