Jeongdong Theater, Korea's representative theater for traditional performance Jeongdong Theater was opened in 1995 based on a historical mission with modern contemporary art spirit to restore “Wongaksa,” Korea's first modern theater. It has focused on promoting the value and beauty of traditional Korean art around the world by successfully launching the permanent performance brand [MISO] and by creating and presenting a traditional musical titled “Love Song from Chunhyang” in order to popularize and globalize Korean masterpiece traditional art. In 2011, it presented 〈Silla, the Land of Gods〉, which is a brand performance of Gyeongju, a city of world cultural heritage; it has contributed to the revitalization of cultural tourism as well and development of local culture. It has also been selected as the first case of joint development of cultural contents by the central government and a local group.

Was recommended by a local. However I am disappointed towards Youll. Predictable storyline. Over price for the experience.

(Youll) A short performance with a simple straightforward story, but the acting and performers are fantastic. A good way to spend a few hours during a night in Seoul.

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
