Opened on June 17, 1995, Jeongdong Theater represented historical significance of being the restored Wongaksa, the first modern theater in Korea. Founded on modern artistic inspirations, Jeongdong Theater has been featuring numerous critically-acclaimed productions such as “Traditional Art Performance,” “Masters Exhibition” and “Art Frontier,” as well as programs like “Art Stage at Noon” that are geared toward the general public, and as a result, Jeongdong Theater has become representative traditional arts performance theater of Korea.

In addition, with its diverse cultural facilities, Jeongdong Theater has become a popular tourist attraction. The main program of Jeongdong Theater is the Traditional Arts Performance. The Traditional Arts Performance is presented everyday, and has become a place where traditional arts are introduced to foreigner visitors.

Jeongdong Theater's outdoor courtyard, Ssamji Madang, has become a cultural site for the public. Special event performances usually take place there. Art decorates the walls of the Jeongdong Theater lobby, turning it into a small art gallery that visitors can appreciate while they are waiting for their performance to begin. The art featured always has a certain theme and the theme changes periodically. Inside the building, brochures explaining the performance schedules are available. Inside the theater is a wall painting named 'Myths of Planets, Plays, Vision.' The picture contains the soft colors and balances of Italian marble, and it expresses the multitudes of cultural differences. Don't forget to take a look at it on the way to your performance.
