In conjunction with Woman’s Day, “Miso: Baebijang-Jeon” was held earlier this month at Sunway Putra Hotel, brought by IME Productions and Jeongdong Theater, supported by the Ministry of Tourism.
When it comes to Traditional Korean Theatre, most people probably had in mind that the show will be bored, plus with zero understanding of korean language will make it less attracted. Jeongdong Theater aims to change the “mentalism” of local and foreigners audience, and guess what? It really works!
The traditional stage show, “Miso” started on 1997, and later it’s been replaced by “Miso: Baebijang-Jeon”, a modernized version that brings out more laughter compared to the original which is more romantic. Besides focusing on the storyline and acting, “Miso: Baebijang-Jeon” also focusing on korean traditional dance, musics and also the beauty of Korean traditional clothes (Hanbok).
Jeon JiHeong, Lee EunBi, Chu Hanul and Lee Hyuk were casted as the main actor/actress in the show, expressed their feelings to hope for the audience to enjoy the performance and also shares about the show with the Malaysian crowds. When they were asked what is the challenge that they faced when were selected as the main character in the show, they said the responsibilities is very great and they will try to show more of their skills in the show.
The story was about Secretary Bae, who never be seduced by any kinds of temptation. During the welcoming party of the new magistrate, he does not socialized with the gisaengs (courtesans). The magistrate declares that he will reward anyone who can seduce him, and Ae-rang said that she will do it. With the help of the male servant, Secretary Bae later can’t help but then fall in love with Ae-rang, when she was taking a bath at the waterfall. To know more about the Secretary Bae’s fate, we highly advised all of you to watch the show LIVE!
The actor and actress never failed to make us laugh from the beginning of the show until the end. The 1 hour show is really interesting and we think that it was a bit too short, and was hoping for more! Nevertheless, the acting and music was really good and it was really worth to watch this even without any knowledge of korean language because it was a bit similar with the korean drama that airs on the TV! They did provide subtitles in English and Chinese for the audience =)
Don’t forget to watch the show when you visit Korea! The show runs every Tuesday-Sunday at Jeongdeong Theater at 3pm-3.30pm and 7pm to 7.30pm. More information at their website.
Thank you IME Production for the invitation!
