Your evening of exceptional dining and entertainment take place at Korea House, located in central Seoul, a well-maintained old-style building that features typical Korean architectural elements.
When you arrive, the staff shows you to your table. Relax as a fine meal composed by award-winning chefs arrives in courses at your table. You'll get to taste traditional dishes prepared with the freshest seasonal ingredients. Then menu is based on preserved records of the Joseon Dynasty’s royal cuisine, giving you the chance to feast like a king or queen.
Among the dishes that you might try, explore the delicate tastes of gujeolpan, consisting of vegetables and meats arranged on a wooden platter divided into nine compartments. Nibble the pancake-type appetizer jeonyuhwa and enjoy elaborate presentations of sinseollo (or yeolguja tang, meaning ‘makes the mouth happy’), made with meatballs, mushrooms and vegetables cooked in a rich broth.
Your evening includes eight performances that include an elegant Korean fan dance with performers in royal formal dress. See a perfect ensemble of drummers play an expressive style of farmers’ percussion music, performed with four janggo (drums shaped like an hourglass), called seoljanggo. Then watch the dancers move to the accompaniment of five drums in an example of o-go-mu (which means ‘five drum dance’).
At the end of your evening, take the opportunity to snap photos with the performers. You can choose to make your way to Korea House on your own, or select hotel pickup upon booking for convenient transport.
