Last night was my second time at this show . I saw the performance 10 years ago when the now director was the star of the show . Great dancing with music . The finale is rousing and I defy any body to not feel the drums during the ending . Don't even try to make or take a picture... More

Last May 2014, I was able to watch a popular traditional Korean play at Jeongdong Theater called Miso. Miso, a Korean word that means “beautiful smile” or “magandand ngiti” in Filipino. Miso is the No. 1 Korean Traditional Arts Performance loved by people from all over the world. Starting last April 2014, Jeongdong Theater presents its new performance for 2014... More

If you are interested in traditional Korean music and dance, this performance is for you. This musical performance is for everyone including those who don't speak Korean. Although it is entertaining for adults, my 3 years old seems bored and luckily didn't make any noise throughout the performance. So, I wouldn't suggest people who have small kids to watch this....

I was on my first day in Seoul and jet lagged up to my eyeballs. This colorful, lively performance will get you going. Traditional instruments and garb. I don't speak an ounce of Korean but not a problem. It's a small theatre....can't imagine any bad seats.

The Chongdong Theater is a cozy small theater. You probably have a good view on the stage from nearly every seat. However I wouldn't go for the front rows as you really have to look up the entire time. We were on the fifth row in the middle which was just excellent. The musical starts with the entire story (written)... More

The Chongdong Theater provides a wonderful cultural experience (although a bit on the loud side). I enjoyed being able to see and hear the traditional musical instruments and dances.

Really enjoyed the show - good music, great costumes, easy to understand. Some bits felt like a Korean version of Gilbert and Sullivan! We found the website for booking online a bit clunky so went to the box office to buy tickets - didn't open til 3pm - the 4pm show was already sold out so we booked for the... More

Loved the musical. Like the love story. Was touched. The actor and actresses took photos after the show. Live singing n playing of instruments reminded me of broadway shows. Those who love broadway will definitely like this.

In the Chongdong Theater the show running in August 2011 is Miso - an Original Korean Musical. The place was packed and you could tell everybody had a great night. The show is spectacular and a nice introduction to part of Korean culture, beautiful choreagraphy, lightning, costumes, live music, percursion, and some opera-style singing. At the end a 10 min...

Neighborhood Profile
Seodaemun
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 in particular is a beautiful place for a stroll in spring and autumn.
