MISO Show Admission at Jeongdong Theater with Round-trip Transport
Be entertained by MISO, a 1.5-hour Korean performance at the Jeongdong Theater in Seoul. To the delight of domestic and foreign audiences, this music-and-dance spectacle uses traditional Korean movements, percussion and theatrical devices to tell a love story based on a satirical novel written during the Joseon Dynasty. Choose a late afternoon or evening show, and enjoy round-trip hotel transport to this box-office hit.

After hotel pickup, the guide will tell you interesting information about the show, before settle into your seat at the Jeongdong Theater in Seoul. Located on romantic Jeongdong Street, the hall seats 600 in a spacious atmosphere. The Jeongdong Theater opened in 1977 with performances of traditional Korean dance and music, delighting audiences of all ages.

Since 2008, the show called Miso ? translated as ?beautiful smile? ? has evolved with new plot lines told through dancers in traditional costumes and pansori (traditional female vocal storytelling), accompanied by drums and samulnori (a traditional percussion quartet). Re-created in 2014 as MISO: Baebijang-jeon, the current story is based on a satirical novel written by an unknown author during the late Joseon Dynasty, and has become a box-office hit.

MISO tells of the fateful encounter between Secretary Bae, a government official who holds honor in high regard, and Ae-rang, one of the most beautiful women of Jeju Island, where Bae is stationed. After Bae scolds the other secretaries for socializing with gisaengs (courtesans), the magistrate wants to test Bae?s vows to never be seduced by any kind of temptation. Ae-rang volunteers, and when Bae sees her bathing at the waterfall, he immediately falls in love.

Humor stands out vividly in this satirical performance that alludes to the hypocrisy of the ruling class and natural human desires.

After the 1.5-hour performance, you?re transported back to your hotel.
