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 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.
