Must watch when you one is in Seoul. The show lasts about 1 hour and they have show times in the evening and night. Do book you tickets in advance from their website. Sign up to become a member to get discounts. They will also run promotions whereby discounts could be up to 30% off!!! It is not non verbal... More

Funny, incredible performers, don't need to be fluent in Korean. If you sit in the front section be prepared to be called up onstage, as there were three parts involving audience participation, but all in good fun. If at all possible, see this show!

This was one of the most amazing stage shows I've seen. Transcending all language barriers with high energy humour, music and movement, it was just non stop laughs and action. The show was truly hilarious and unexpected - who would have thought a cooking show could be so much fun. The audience participation was also very well done. If you... More

It was my first theatre experience ever and it was pretty good! Whitetail, the hostel I stayed at, was able to get me tickets for half price as well which was a big bonus. The theatre is pretty small, there's two levels, so I reckon you'll get a decent view from wherever you're sitting so I don't think paying extra... More

We were on a business trip to Seoul and heard about this theater. It was really a lot of fun and had a little bit of audience participation. We laughed a lot!! We purchased the priority seats but this is a small theater and there would not be a bad seat in the place. So don't feel like you need... More
