A friend recommended this experience one year while I was visiting Korea. I passed because it just didn't seem like my kind of thing at all. The next year I went back to Korea, Nanta somehow came to my attention again and when I saw they were having a discount I figured "why not." So going in with no expectation... More

I have to remind myself that this is a musical. The singing and dancing are professional. But in terms of the level of entertainment, I prefer the Cooking Show at NANTA Myeongdong. You cannot watch Wedding Show with the same expectation after you have watched the Cooking Show. If you have not watch Cooking Show at NANTA Myeongdong, I would... More

The wedding show was so entertaining. We didnt understand korean, but you dont have to know the language to understand the story. The songs were good and the people were extremely talented, and funny! I laughed through the whole show. Love it lots!!!! If they come to indonesia, i would definitely watch it!

And I was picked up to participate in their show~ so lucky~ the actors are so funny, they make u laugh every second without any words~ so don't worry about the language~ u can't take pictures during the show, but...

Nanta is supposed to be a show about food. Many people like it. I am not a big fan of it. However it is so much fin if you go with little ones, or have a sense of humor like them. They giggle a lot. It was a little too messy and not what i wished for.

Amazing cooking show! And extremely funny for travelers that don't speak Korean. LOOOVED the head chef. My daughter and I had a great time. It's worth it to sit close to the stage and they even have audience participation!

You will enjoy this trip into fantasy and showmanship. The actors are mesmerizing, extremely agile, and talented. Do not be afraid to attend since there is no dialogue and the plot is easily and cleverly understood. We laughed a lot. This was a fun evening out.

Before I went, I thought the idea sounded awful and that it really wasn't my type of performance and that I would hate it but at the same time, I thought all those good reviews can't be wrong! I'm so glad I went - it was a thrilling, exciting and skilled performance. I wasn't bored like I thought I'd be... More

Staying in Hongdae

Neighborhood Profile
Hongdae
Carefree enthusiasm is everywhere in this energetic neighborhood centered on Hongik University, Korea’s top art school. From its assortment of murals to the occasional amateur street performances, creativity and expression make up the wild and beating heart of vibrant Hongdae. At the Free and Hope Market (weekends at the Hongdae Children’s Playground) you'll find one of Seoul’s most popular handmade and creative markets drawing consistent crowds. At Hongdae, there’s never a shortage of things to do and see; food and drink options are nearly endless as are shops and noraebang (karaoke) rooms. Hongdae is also one of Seoul’s top party and club scenes catering to a younger demographic; if a packed club isn’t your scene, you'll also find a range of music venues and bars offering live music in all genres. Although Hongdae has lost much of its unique appeal and undergone rapid commercialization in recent years, be sure to explore Hongdae’s edges in areas such as Sangsu-dong and Yeonnam-dong where Hongdae’s fiercely independent streak still runs freely.
