I know this post is somewhat late now, but if you skip by the first few entries I think you’ll get a good idea of some of the bigger shows coming up in Korea this month.
I recently started working for the Ministry of Culture, Sports and Tourism, and as part of my job I compiled this list of shows for October.
Go forth, and if you find it helpful or have anything to add/quibble about/correct, please let me know. It was more work than I was expecting, and if I get enough support I’d consider making it a monthly feature.
There are tons of shows missing, but this is intended as kind of the biggest shows of the month. Full disclosure, I’m putting on a show this month that didn’t make the list, so don’t bother looking for any sorts of biases of self interest.
UPDATE (by Mark): Jon’s list is great, but I just wanted to add that this weekend is the Ulsan World Music Festival. There is a lot of good stuff on the playbill, all worth watching, but I really have to point out Seun Kuti & Egypt 80 — I saw them a few months ago in Spain and they were just excellent. Very much in the spirit of Seun’s amazing father Fela Kuti, with a host of great performers. Highly recommended.
