Yeonsan dances along together, and at this time, the sapsal dog mask appears!

The last dance shared by Noksu and Yeonsan before they left this world is an original Korean contemporary creative dance!

Filled with both actors’ desperate emotions, the conclusion of the story is drawn through the presentation of Korea’s unique dance.

For all this time, Jang Noksu and King Yeonsan have been painted as a temptress and a tyrant.

<The Palace: Tale of Jang Noksu> is a traditional Korean dance performance that focuses on the gisaeng arts possessed by Jang Noksu and the portrayal of Yeonsan who loves gisaeng arts and entertainment.

If you wish to witness the dances of the woman who climbs her way to the throne from a lowly status using only her gisaeng arts…!
