Recently watched Jump! and had a very enjoyable evening here. Tickets were bought via phone reservations the day before with pick up at the box office. The theatre was easy to find and a few min walk from Jongno 3-ga station Exit 14.
Jump! felt like watching an East Asian martial arts movie live on stage. The performance was of traditional kind, meaning no fancy effects or gadgetry, so it was amusing when the characters had to simulate these effects themselves. Like a martial arts movie, there was a good amount of genuinely funny scenes interspersed with some corny bits, and the actors played spirited characters and were quite sportive with the audience. The character of the old limping man got a little tiresome after awhile (still popular with the kids though); thought the uncle character was great.
Overall a pretty fun evening in Jump! which offered romance and action wrapped in a humourous ball. Have never watched a comedy martial arts show before but thought Jump! was pretty good.
1. The play is nearly wordless, you can read the brochure before the show to be familiar with the plot as the episodes are played out.
2. The show runs for about 80-90minutes with no intermission so be sure to troop to the bathroom before the performance.
