My first theatrical play in Korea! I really like watching plays and it is always fun to watch it in another country 🙂
I found a website called Coupang (which is Korea’s version of Groupon). They have discounted tickets but when you buy, they ask you for your number, credit card information (just domestic ones) so I couldn’t get it on my own. Therefore, I had to get the help from my local friends .. sigh.
In any case, there are many theaters in Daegu apparently. Unlike the ones in Busan where people stuff fliers into your hands when you walk by, you actually had to find the place on your own and line up to get tickets. Perhaps the venue is a little smaller but the place was a full house.
Prior to entering the theatre, we grabbed a hot dog at the store on the first floor.
This was the play we watched. After the discount, it was only 11900 won (originally, it was 30,000 won). That is almost the same a watching a movie in Korea …
The seats are first come first serve and we ended up getting seats smacked in the middle of the theater.
It is a very small theater so everyone is very cozy sitting together.
The play we went to was about the ups and downs of a campus and working couple (campus couple: Konglish – meaning a college couple). They spoke very fast and spoke in slangs. Needless to say, I couldn’t understand everything they say but I can understand it by context. They also interact with the audience, which makes it even more fun. However, I kept my head low because I don’t want to get picked on LOL.
We can’t take photos or eat inside the theatre. However, the cast generously posed for us at the end of the show and even told us to bring our camera out. The guy in the middle was super hilarious … he was a man of a 100 roles 😛
After the play, we went shopping and had a light midnight snack. It was a super fun night out in town. Daegu is awesome 🙂
