A high-tech twist on a classic


The Korean traditional tale “Simcheong” is such a popular story that it has been adapted into almost all genres of performing arts, ranging from pansori (narrative singing) to traditional dance to ballet. Now the Korea House in central Seoul is presenting a whole new “Simcheong” by mixing diverse intangible cultural assets such as pansori, fan dance, nongak (traditional music performed by farmers), and sinawi (improvisational ensemble music), along with high-tech holograms. The Korea House’s new permanent show, which kicked off last week, is being staged twice a day at 6:30 and 8:30 p.m. Tickets cost 50,000 won ($42). [KOREA CULTURAL HERITAGE FOUNDATION]
