#SEOULdout: I was the Guest Bride at the Cooking Nanta Musical

My sister and I planned to make sure to watch a show when we travel so when I asked my friend Ye, who watched the Cooking Nanta Musical in Korea, she said it’s worth every penny.

And it was, it really was!

We booked our tickets at a discounted rate via the Klook app. We arrived early at the theatre in Hongdae, then got upgraded to VIP on the night of the show, and even got a part as the surprise bride in the show. The guy who picked me up from the audience area is this hot guy chef in the show. I think all Korean male actors, though good-looking, looks all alike, but this one stood out!

Too bad we cant take pictures inside (pics or it didn’t happen) but because I was part of the show, they gave me a free remembrance gift photo too! It was so much fun! I’m glad we really booked this show, even though I know nothing of it. I tried to see if there’s anything about it on YouTube, but THIS IS SO MUCH WORTH THE MONEY TO SEE LIVE! I cannot stress that enough.

In fact, it was so good, that a TV director colleague of my friend who recommended this watched this TWICE!

Because I was part of the show, and because cameras are not allowed, they gave my a remembrance of the experience.

This is the part where the Guest Groom and I were tasting the soup that they were making for our “Wedding Party”.

And it’s true that they use fresh ingredients. You can actually smell the freshness of the vegetable props used from the backstage.

I also love how this show has audience participation. It was so good! I even took home to the Philippines the flying ball I got during the ball shower in the show. I don’t want to give away too much information, you have to see it for yourself.

When we go back to Korea, we’ll watch it this time at the Myeongdong Theatre. If you plan to go to South Korea, you must include this in your itinerary. You will not regret it, I promise. In fact, the rest of our group were so glad they decided to join us and watch the show even though they weren’t initially feeling it at first. I’ve never laughed and cried so hard at the same time.
