I opted to see this after reading reviews (vs. Nanta). I was not disappointed. Great dancing and music. High energy with the gymnastic dancers and drummers.

A nice performance for us who don't understand Korean. This show was well advertised by the Tourist Office so the theater was packed. If this is the only cultural show you are able to watch during your first visit to Korea, I don't think you...More

An amazing performance of traditional music, singing and storyline. The costumes and dancing and acting were fantastic. Even though the performance was in Korean language, a banner explained the story at appropriate intervals and it was obvious what was happening. The performance was magical and...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
