Full description
Do something different during your time in Seoul and watch a unique performance at the Myeongdong Nanta Theatre. The non-verbal show is perfect for foreigners, and an English, Japanese and Chinese multi-language service is also provided for your convenience. The narrative centers around 3 charismatic chefs and integrates the traditional rhythms of Samulnori with comedy and drama. The cooks in the kitchen are about to begin their busy job, when the ill-tempered manager orders them to prepare 10 wedding ceremony menus in 1 hour! Suddenly the kitchen is thrown into turmoil and the cooks become wild as they chop, beat and stir in an attempt to meet the deadline. Nanta has set the record for attracting the most visitors to Korea, and has been acclaimed by critics and audiences wherever it goes.

    The Nanta show is amazing and our entire family had a great time! It was very memorable and personal. Be prepared to become part of the show! It's no wonder that this show has continued for so long. Nanta is amazing! This theater is in the middle of a very busy shopping district. There are thousands of people and parking is very difficult to find (and ~₩20k). I would recommend parking a few km away and taking a taxi to the theater.

    We laughed all the way to the end!

    Happy to have brought my husband with me this time. He told me he was very tired that day but I told him he will not have any chance to sleep in this show. And your team had proved my right! He laughed all the way to the end, not a moment of tiredness at all. Thank you
