The best way that I can describe the show is a live version of Fawlty Towers. Very funny and entertaining from start to finish. The energy from the cast was fantastic and there was no language barrier at all.
My family went to see this tonight (brown team we’re in stage!). It is very clever as it allows for a western audience with lots of English used and general ‘nonsense’ words too.
Drumming, chopping, plates, knives and generally lots of fun!
Both my husband...More
A slapstick comedy with drumming and dancing. It's not dialogue heavy, which is nice. My four kids, ages 3 to 11, loved it, as did our friend (kid at heart). My husband and I liked it, but what made it best was the others' reactions....More
This was a great show!! Very entertaining and great for all tourists since they don't really speak during the show. The story is carried out through body language/dancing and music!!! Loved it! Worth every penny and it was definitely worth paying a little more for...More
We went based on the “fun for everyone” reviews. But it definitely is skewed for kids. Felt we weren’t really the audience as adults. And the jokes and drumming got a little repetitive. But the performers are very talented and it’s fun spirited.
This is a light hearted, very little speaking humourous show. A lot of slapstick humour, music in the form of banging with kitchen equipment (pots, pans, knives, bins, etc), acrobatics, and audience participation in the form of audience members joining on stage or being encouraged...More
A co-worker who had recently visited Seoul badgered us into including this show in our itinerary. He insisted we would enjoy it. I had doubts, to be honest. It’s not that easy to get a laugh out of me, but I was never so glad...More
We went to the highly praised cooking show The Nanta Cooking Show. When se reaches there the show was nearly full and only few seats at the back were available or else we had to wait for next show. So we bought those tickets. We...More
A good mix of music, comedy and public interaction. Fun for all ages and no korean language knowlwdge required.
TIP: if the show is fully booked online. try visiting the physical location. they will likely still have seats left.
Arguably Seoul’s most famous neighbourhood and undoubtedly one of its most popular, Myeongdong takes shopping and eating to new heights, with hundreds of shops, restaurants, and cafes all stacked on top of one another. The rise in popularity of Korean cosmetics, fashion, and more has made this area a must-see for visitors who come and marvel at Myeongdong’s often frenetic pace and energy. Lotte and
Shinsaegae’s massive department stores are also popular draws for both Korean and luxury products. The department stores, just like Myeongdong’s streets, are crowded around the clock. Myeongdong’s many street food carts are also immensely popular for their inexpensive and quirky offerings (French-fry-encrusted corn dogs, anyone?). The neighbourhood’s popularity, as well as its close proximity to other popular sights and neighbourhoods, makes it one of Seoul’s most popular places to stay.
