HAM-ICK
Sejong Center for the Performing Arts, M Theater

Written by playwright Kim Eun-seong, this Korean version of “Hamlet” was first performed in 2016 by the Seoul Metropolitan Theatre. The piece was created to mark the 400th anniversary of William Shakespeare’s death and director Kim Gwang-bo received great acclaim after its premiere.

Although Ham-ick lives a perfect life as a second-generation chaebol and a university professor, her inner life is filled with revenge. Because she struggles with social skills, she wears a figurative mask to hide who she truly is. But when she meets college student Yeon-woo, her loneliness begins to shake. The playwright made Hamlet into a female character and dramatized the original story in various ways.

ALL NEW MUSICAL GREASE
D-Cube Arts Center
April 30 to Aug. 11


The popular rock ’n’ roll musical “Grease” has been reproduced to reflect modern times with rearranged numbers and newly designed stages and props by Korea’s OD Company.

This new show is still heavily based on the 1971 musical by Jim Jacobs and Warren Casey that highlights the ’50s U.S. working-class youth subculture known as “greasers.” The characters are still the same, as is the story line, according to Shin Chun-soo, the producer of the OD Company, adding that the musical had to be retouched and upgraded so it could also speak to younger audiences who don’t understand U.S. culture of the ’50s and ’60s. The cast includes Seo Kyeong-soo, Kim Tae-oh, Jeong Se-yoon, Yang Seo-yoon and Han Chae-ah, among many others.

The show begins at 8 p.m. on weekdays; at 3 p.m. and 7 p.m. on Saturdays; at 2 p.m. and 6 p.m. on Sundays and public holidays. There are no shows on Mondays.

Tickets range from 60,000 won to 140,000 won.
