Jeongdong Theater (or "Chongdong Theater") is a Korean traditional performing arts center located behind Deoksugung Palace which is across the street from city hall in downtown Seoul. It is within walking distance of the Seoul Plaza Hotel and also very close to the Westin Chosun Hotel, Lotte Hotel, and Myeongdong Ibis Hotel.
This is the place to experience traditional Korean music and dance performances. Tickets are 20,000 won for standard "A" seats and 30,000 won for premium "S" seats. Shows start at 8pm every night.
There are different programs, depending on the night, such as gayageum (zither-like string instrument) and pansori (female vocal music storytelling accompanied by male percussional). Everything is beautifully done with great lighting and sound effects. After the main performance in the theater, the audience is invited to join the samul nori ("farmers' music and dance") outside in the courtyard. This is great fun as people can dance with the band.
The theater provides English and Japanese subtitles and there is free shuttle bus service from major hotels in the downtown area.
Jeongdong Theater is located in a very nice and peaceful area of downtown Seoul with cobblestone streets that provides for a pleasant stroll.
