Jeongdong Theater, Korea's representative theater for traditional performance
Jeongdong Theater was opened in 1995 based on a historical mission with modern contemporary art spirit to restore “Wongaksa,” Korea's first modern theater.
It has focused on promoting the value and beauty of traditional Korean art around the world by successfully launching the permanent performance brand [MISO] and by creating and presenting a traditional musical titled “Love Song from Chunhyang” in order to popularize and globalize Korean masterpiece traditional art. In 2011, it presented 〈Silla, the Land of Gods〉, which is a brand performance of Gyeongju, a city of world cultural heritage; it has contributed to the revitalization of cultural tourism as well and development of local culture. It has also been selected as the first case of joint development of cultural contents by the central government and a local group.
