What ~ Namsadang Nori is a traditional Korean group of male performers that used to travel around the country. They had a 6 part act that included shows featuring: Instrument al dancing, plate spinning, acrobatics, tight rope walking, a mask dance, and a puppet show.
Our group was able to get a history lesson and also get a chance to try out the puppets and plate spinning!
Pros- Fun and light-hearted staff, genuinely interested in sharing Korean culture, talented performers, welcoming and helpful, encouraged everyone to participate, well-translated, fun to watch and also fun to be hands-on.
Cons- Limited on time, felt very rushed.
Description- On October 22nd, a group of about 40 people from around the world traveled to Jeonju from Seoul to learn about and experience the Namsadang Nori. After eating a delicious bronze bowl of bibimbab, we walked past Jeonju Hanok Villiage and saw the traditional Jeoson buildings with many people wearing their hanbok dresses. It was like stepping back in time 500 years ago!
We then arrived at the National Intangible Heritage Center
