Can you imagine how the actors life just before the performance?
Here below B cuts photos from rehearsal room of Musical “Pann: The Stage”.

Jicheol Kim! The charming actor who acts the role of Dalsu!
In this photo, the actors wear the same T-shirt which is offered by fan club of Jicheol Kim.
The T-shirt of “Pann” supported by Jicheol’s fan made another great scene in the rehearsal room.

Juhye You, the actress who acts the role of I-deok lay down on the floor looking at the ceiling.

Following her gaze, let’s imagine what she is thinking about?
Thinking about Hotae who is the best storyteller?
Thinking about Dalsu, the brand new storyteller?

Or she is thinking now about the world of her novel.

This is Sora Im, the actress who acts the role of Boon-i!

This is “X” mark for Dalsu to give him a cool-headed assessment.

Jihoon Kim, the actor who acts the role of Hotae, the best storyteller of Joseon era now checking messages on his smart phone.

While we talk now through phones in this era,
many people was laughing and crying thought the story which is talked by Jeongi-su in Joseon ear.

Review of Musical PANN: The Stage! The inexorability of satire!

Hello, This is review from Jeongdong Press!!

I went to see the musical PANN: The Stage which is staged from Dec 7 to Dec 31.

Here below I share the review!

A scene from Musical PANN: The Stage

The boundary between improvisation and script is broken!

Once the performance begins, the actors come out from the back of the audience and they make noisy to start!
They say hello and high five to the audience. It makes the auditorium and the stage as one place.
Due to the concept of story tellers who talk to the audience, the whole auditorium seems to be the stage.
Therefore, I could concentrate to the performance well.
Also, in the middle of the performance, the actors conduct impromptu talk to the audience
and this part does not seem an acting but play they enjoy.
I was very happy with the natural laughing of the actors.

The inexorability of satire!

The protagonists of the musical ‘PANN: The Stage’ are ‘Jeongi-su’ which is the profession of storyteller in the last of Joseon era.
They satirized the dark reality.
The storytellers in 2017 satirize the society where we live now and they shout “Who is the owner of DAS?!”.
I hope we also have that kind of storyteller who satirizes the society and make people feeling relieved in this era.

A scene from Musical PANN: The Stage

All kinds of genre are here on the stage!

The music of the performance is lively played in the theater.
During the performance, the musicians keep playing the music in the back of the stage.
It makes the performance more lively!
Even if the background of the performance is Joseon era, the performance presents various kind of music:
Various kinds of western music including Bossa nova, Tango, Swing are played by Korean traditional music instrument
and it was really fantastic experience for me!

Furthermore, various kinds of Korean traditional dance including Tal-chum, shoulder dance
make harmony with other kinds of music in the performance.

I had no idea about the performance before the performance start
but I wan never bored during the 2 hours of the performance.
It shows well the Korean excitement!

I hope you also come and see this great performance for your wonderful end of the year!

“How I could stop talking !”

The musical “Pann: The stage” was selected the best musical by CJ cultural foundation
and it is coming back to Jeongdong Theater in December!

The musical runs from December 7 to December 31.

Before the premier, I visited the rehearsal room of the musical on November 23. 

The rehearsal of the musical “Pann: The stage”
In this day, I could see the complete version of the musical.
I’m sure that it is sssssso funny!

Wait, do you know what is “Jeongi-su” is?

Professional storytellers are called “Jeongi-su” in Joseon era.

They got many loves from the public as they were very talented in storytelling.

The musical “Pann: The stage” is a story about a man(Dalsu) who tried to become a Jeongi-su
after seeing Hotae, the best story teller in Joseon.

Hotae and Dalsu satirize a district magistrate who ban them from storytelling.

The two storytellers ridicule him talking that “he has a smell of money”.

They critic about the irrational society with storytelling.

It is so gratifying and powerful!  

The story goes to the climax when the two storytellers are taken to the government office.

In front of the district magistrate, Dalsu says

“A man who has a chip mouth like a dog gives the birds trouble and it has been at least over ten years”


Dalsu_Actor Jicheol Kim (Left) & Hotae_Actor Jihoon Kim(Right), giving a storytelling with a marionette show.

And a big sounds of percussion comes to the stage.

And birds appears on the stage and the birds peck at the  district magistrate.

This scene was the most memorable for me.

It is the time when the public’s anger are at a simmer. 

I’m really looking forward to seeing this scene on the real stage.

Also, the acting was sssso powerful.

The two actors showed a great valance.
