Seoul Donhwamun Traditional Theater
To July 23: Before the Seoul Donhwamun Traditional Theater officially opens in September, it is offering a variety of traditional music performances for 3,000 won each.
The theater aims to recreate traditional Korean music with contemporary touches. For example, “Geuk Ak Mu Do” will showcase songs in the form of a play, and “Chunghogaram” will surprise the audience with its unusual cast of male gayageum (traditional zither) players, since the instrument is usually played by women.
