Saturday Traditional Culture Show

A great cultural experience for only 10,000 won!

Did you know that every Saturday, the Korean National Center organizes a beautifully cultural performance? With over 50 performances a year, and 14 different sets, it means that even if you are a repeat spectator you will constantly be surprised by the new and the amazing!

Watch a video preview here!

It is an hour and twenty minute performance that consists of a mixture of traditional music, song, dance, from high court to something more local, from the east to the west cost of Korea! Each show is about 5 minutes long, and they have been specifically designed to engage both those familiar, and unfamiliar with traditional Korean art and dance.


You will be able to see Korean women wearing beautiful Korean costumes, and because of the intimate nature of the theater they will actually be right in front of you! I was so surprised to be able to see such exquisite detail up close, and to hear the music!


Although you are not allowed to take photos inside the theater during the performance, they do give you an amazing photo opportunity right at the end of the show- which is perfect for those of us who want to take something a little bit Korean home with us!
