I’m usually not a show-going person, except for Kpop related ones. This time, thanks to Global Seoul Mate, I got to experience THE MOST engaging show I have ever watched.

Before going there, I did not have a high expectation as I was not even interested in such activities. All that I know about the show is that it has a high popularity among Chinese tourists and the show would not have any spoken words involved throughout. So I thought, it is probably going to be boring as how on earth can performers be engaging without any words being spoken?

Well, the show has totally proven me wrong, it was really amazingly, humourously entertaining and engaging. The performers have a strong stage presence and their painting skills are superb! From paintings of Michael Jackson, Bruce Lee, Beethoven, characters from The Romance of Three Kingdoms to Little Mermaid, all these were done on the spot and has shown a great effort in resonating with the audience, despite of age and cultural differences. What is also worth mentioning is their dance skills~ They danced to Michael Jackson’s songs.

Not just merely engaging the audience with humerous body languages. They also came off stage and brought a few audience members to stage to join the performance. The moments were hilarious, sadly photography and videography were both not allowed.

From the show, I really got to understand the true meaning of ‘a picture speaks a thousand words’ (in this case, a painting) and how language barriers can be broken down with no words being said, yet you understand every essence of it.

I strongly recommend you to come to watch Painters Hero if you come to Korea. The show lasted for approximately 1hour and is located in central seoul, (Jongno-5-ga). No wonder, it is listed as THE MUST WATCH SHOW in Korea.

At last, you can get autographs from the performers in the hall after the show ends. You may even ask them for a photo together~

Global Seou Mate Induction Ceremony 2017

The induction ceremoney for Global Seoul Mate 2017 was held o April. About 120 of us gathered for the occassion. We were grouped into teams according to our nationality and area of residence.

One highlight of the ceremony was the ‘Bibimbap’ performence. I guess it’s something similar to the Nanta Show, which probably more people have heard about..? The show is about 2 chefs competiting with each other, combined with dances and singings. It was a great show and I was glad to be able to experience it.
