I’ve posted about the travel spot in Gyeongju.
Especailly today, I would like to post about ‘Cultural Life’ in Bomun Tourist Complex!
As all of you are coming from out of Gyeongju,
Mostly, you might arrive in Sin Gyeongju Train Station, Express Bus Terminal or Gyeongju Train Station.
For the first, I would like to recommend you to have a great lunch on Hwangridan-gil,
which recently is very famous in Gyeongju.
After having lunch, you can hang around the Hwangridan-gil.
And you can come to Bomun Tourist Complex by bus.

All right! After arriving in Bomun Tourist Complex,
You should visit to ‘Wooyang Museum’.
Wooyang Museum was founded in 1991
and it has presented various international exhibitions & artists inside and outside of Korea!
The museum is located in Hilton Hotel!
Current exhibition is ‘Meta-scape’ !
Do you know what ‘Meta-scape’ is?
Regarding the information on the museum web,
it means ‘Meta-reading of landscapes’.
In other words,the exhibition aims to highlight the meta-attitude of artists and the “identity of contemplation” involved in comtemporary, subjective landscape artworks.
Here, the prefix “meta”, originating from the Greek, means “beyond” or “after,” referring to a higher level of abstraction!

which are located in front of the Expo Park!
Then, it is time to see the performance! at 7.30 pm!
Jeongdong Theater’s ‘Silla’ presents the encounter of the Silla and the Persia.
Here below the synopsis!
Persian Prince Abitin went into exile after the Arab Conquest of Persia.
When he was on a long journey to a remote land of mystery, a storm hit the ship and Abtin felt himself sinking into the dark cold abyss. When he woke up, he realized he had been shipwrecked on a beautiful land called Basilla.
Princess Frarang happened to meet Abtin and fell in love with him at once. However, not long after, she had to say goodbye to Abtin shen he left for his country…
After saving the Persian Empire, Abtin became the new king.
In the middle of the banquet celebrating his victory, and accompanied by dancers, Abtin was assassinated by Zahhak and his followers, called Cats.
Frarang left for Persia with her son Faridun to take revenge for the murder of Abtin, and defeated Zahhak. Meanwhile, the Silla Kingdom was invaded by an evil forces of raiders let by Kush…
I highly recommend to see ‘Silla’!!
