Event 03/27 in Seoul: Seoul City Tour

I joined the Seoul City Tour organized by the Korea University Buddy Assistants (KUBA). Three stops where part of it: The National Museum of Modern and Contemporary Art, the Gyeongbokgung Palace and the Cookin’ Nanta show.

The major topic was about different kind of voids, e. g. how private voids have turned into public voids in Seoul throught the last 80 years.

Referring to the description of the last picture, from a philosophical point of view it is contrary to nihilism.

Even if voids look like an empty space, they can be a space filled with the sound of rain or the flowing wind.

As we have spent more time than planned in the museum, we decided spontaneously where to go.

After leaving the Museum I encountered an odd scene.

Cookin’ Nanta

While the exhibition wasn’t everyone’s favor, Cookin’ Nanta caught everyone’s attention. Unfortunately, no photos were allowed, but I highly recommend  to watch it. I’ve never seen such a mess, especially not in an indeed unconventional musical.

Thankfully KUBA is planning further activities so I’m quite sure this was only the beginning of fruitful visits of places in Seoul.

  1. That sounds pretty interesting! Do You know if there are some videos of Cookin’ Nanta on youtube?

    And wtf about this strange statue with the children O.o

    By the way, it’s nice to see a picture of you 🙂
    Looks like you get along well in korea 🙂


    1. Just found one phone video, maybe there are better ones, but as a first impression it should work: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dxYsfLAvqAA

      Yeah, everything is fine, however it’s sometimes difficult to communicate as nearly no one speaks English which I wouldn’t have thought of. So I’d say you’re doing much better if you can speak at least a little Korean (which isn’t that difficult).

      So no culture shock 🙂
