Seoul 103 – Myeongdong Nanta Theatre (明洞乱打剧场)

When one in Seoul, the center of K-Pop culture, Nanta is one of the must see shows. Premiered in 1997, this is the longest running live show in South Korea. The story evolved around 3 cooks attempting to finish preparing a wedding banquet within a
strict time limit while the manager put his incompetent nephew
among the kitchen staff. We had a great time watching the almost non-verbal show which included acrobatics, magic tricks, comedy, pantomime and audience participation (my sister was dragged to the stage). The unifying element throughout the musical is the use of traditional Korean samul nori music, which in this case performed with almost anything found in the kitchen like the cutting boards, water canisters, plates, bowls, cutlery, kitchen knives and many more. For KRW60,000 each (about MYR166), we were seated at the VIP zone very close to the stage, and were able to get most of the actions up close. In short, this extremely high energy, funny, synchronized, well played show was truly fascinating.
