“How I could stop talking !”

The musical “Pann: The stage” was selected the best musical by CJ cultural foundation

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.
