The popular rock musical Line 1 staged here takes a satirical look at Seoul – the ‘Ladies of Gangnam’ song and dance routine is a memorable highlight. The nearly three-hour show has English subtitles on a screen on Wednesdays, Fridays and Sundays. After running for 15 years and 4000 performances, at the time of writing there were plans to replace it with a new, updated version – perhaps it will be called Line 2.
This large red-brick theatre was designed by leading architect Kim Swoo-geun and opened in 1981. The 600-seat and 150-seat venues put on a varied dance-oriented program of events and shows, as well as hosting the annual Seoul Performing Arts Festival and the International Modern Dance Festival.
