Spend an evening at Seoul’s Korea House and learn about the Joseon Dynasty. Recipes from the royal palace have been used to make the dishes on the menu. Award-winning chefs make dishes like seafood in a pine nut sauce, abalone on skewers, and grilled tenderloin with pumpkin sauce.

Korea House has excellent food, entertainment, and shopping all in one place. The royal banquet is made up of a dozen small, artistic courses. The hanok, the waitresses in hanbok, the gayageum (zither) music, and the platters and boxes in which the food is served are all part of the experience.

The small theater has two dance and music shows that each last an hour. Some English commentary is shown on a screen during the shows, which are put on by a group of top musicians and dancers. The show has beautiful court dances, a spiritual shamanist dance called pansori, a folk dance called samullori, and a dance called samgomu (acrobatic female drummers each banging on three drums). If you’re here for dinner, you can get 30% off your tickets.

The experience is completed by the shop at Korea House, which sells quality design items, traditional crafts, and books, such as Eumsik Dimibang, a 1670 cookbook from the Joseon era.

While you eat, there will be a variety of musical performances for you to enjoy. Watch artists do a spiritual dance called “pansori” and listen to “samul nori” music, which is played on four Korean instruments. Witness samgo-mu dances from acrobatic female drummers. In the Korea House in Seoul, you can get a taste of the Joseon Dynasty.
