Nanta tells the nonverbal story of four cooks who must prepare an entire wedding banquet in just one hour. The electrifying 1.5-hour show offers a comic sketch of mishaps in the kitchen, performed through ‘samulnori’ — traditional Korean percussion quartet melodies. Nanta premiered in 1997 and has become the longest-running show in Korea. See kitchen knives, cutting boards and cooking utensils transformed into remarkable musical instruments. This comedy of errors is sure to captivate you with its high-energy humor.



Start the tour by watching the most popular musical in Korea - Nanta. It tells the simple story of chefs that are on a wedding banquet deadline. Almost non-verbal in nature, Nanta makes use of traditional Korean samul nori music performed by the actors improvised through kitchen utensils such as knives and cutting boards. The show, which has been running since October of 1997 in Korea, has achieved outstanding international success, having performed on Broadway and toured around the U.S. and the rest of the world.

After the show, we'll explore Insa-dong street, an important place located in the heart of the city, where old but precious and traditional goods are on display. Within the alleys of this street are galleries, traditional restaurants, tea houses and cafes.
