  • Information

The center can accommodate every single type of traditional performing arts, such as Palace Music, Court Music, and all other genres including major productions of Changguek (Korean musical drama). The theatre in Yeak-dang Hall gives the illusion of being in an ancient Korean household. On the 2nd floor of the hall, there is a separate children's playground, which allows for quiet enjoyment of the music in the performance hall.
