Best shows in Seoul: NANTA Show
First of all, you can never miss this exceptionally entertaining show when travelling Korea – NANTA Show. The plot is very simple, about the preparation for a feast by chefs. But never underestimate, the cooking process is still staged elaborately, the combination of many different arts: tumbling, dancing, performing magic tricks and musical instruments. And that’s not all, NANTA Show offers the audience chances to engage in the show by getting on stage. Although the KKday team was never lucky enough to be chosen, watching the hilarious show was still an extraordinary experience, we were all cracked up!
If you are already in Seoul, NANTA Show tickets can be booked with Klook at Myeongdong and Hongdae theatres with shockingly cheap prices, 30% cheaper than buying directly from NANTA website.
First-class ticket – Buy directly at Myeongdong or Hongdae: 40,000 Won/ticket ($34.44)

Best shows in Korea: The Painters HERO
Not a Seoul show, if you are a Vietnamese visitor in Jeju island in order to travel without having to get a visa, there is a worth-seeing performance on the island called The Painters HERO. Just like its name, the actors and actresses in The Painters HERO perform distinctive drawings right on stage, combine astonishing effects such as drawing with lights, drawing on water, drawing with dust,…
A thing to keep in mind is that children under 2 are not allowed, while children from 2-5 years old have free entrance. Adults must purchase tickets, (obviously), but purchasing through Klook is only at USD 23.43 for a first-class ticket, saves up to almost half of the original price when buying directly on The Painters HERO website, which is at USD 40 /ticket.

Top shows in Seoul: Fireman Show
Besides cooking and art-related shows, Fireman Show is another exciting show everyone should try. The performance plot is about a group of firefighters bravely go through dangerous firefighting missions. The most inspiring part is that not only can you watch staggering tumbling, astonishing choreography, the audience will also widen their knowledge on how strict is the training to be a qualified firefighter and fire fighting and prevention tips through funny staged situations.
If you are hesitating on whether to buy the show tickets or to spend the money on Jjimjilbang bath, #TeamLivingNomads just want to let you know that until December 31st, 2018, Klook has a buy 1 get 1 free discount for both seat classes of Fireman Show.
