Must see this interesting show when in korea. It was really good and funny. The kids especially enjoyed this show very much! The theater is in myeongdong so very convenient for us as we stayed in Lotte Seoul. Highly recommended.

Imagine 1 and a half hours of drumming, some slapstick, some dancing, and some audience participation. Great for families and kids. After you see it you get a lot of respect for the actors.

We had a hilarious time at the show, despite there being no dialogue at the show. It’s a very creative show, based on a cooking scenario. An added attraction is that the theatre is located in the must-visit Myeongdong area!!

Myeongdong / Namdaemun
Arguably Seoul’s most famous neighborhood 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
