“Everyone Can Cooks”, that is what Ratatouille said. Oh yea.. I strongly agree with that but what Ratatouille forgets to add is “but NOT All Are Good Cook”. How do you define good cook then?
Good cooking skills? Good recipe? Good food? If you say that are the only determining factors, I would say your eyes will be wide open when you see Cookin’ NANTA! BUT BUT.. what’s that?
Cookin’ Nanta is Korean Best No. 1 Performance. What does that means? It is a non verbal performance that integrates Korea’s traditional rhythm, Samulnori, with comedy and drama in the kitchen.
There are 8 teams in total that will be performing on various days in a week. Knowing that I am in favour of RED (Chinese “ONG” color), they specifically selected RED Team to perform just for me. Er.. I am just slightly over exaggerating.
There is nothing special about the stage setup and it appears to be rather simple. No fancy lighting, no fancy backdrop but the crowd was packed full. Not knowing that this is the famous play, I was quite lucky to get the last minute VIP ticket which cost me about 60,000 won.
Actually, I was quite early there to queue for the ticket but somehow many placed their online reservation few months ahead before me. Was it that good?
I asked the same question before and my answer is spectacularly marvellous show! I always think that language will be a barrier when comes to stage performance but Nanta successfully proves me wrong!
Like usual, I will not kill the suspense by telling you everything but to summarize, this is the only performance that blend music, play, skills, comedy and fun all together perfectly. I must admit that the actress is super hot and the fellow actors are super sexy! Wink wink.
They will cook, make music out of kitchen utensil, silly jokes, competition among spectators, crowd involvements in their play, and more importantly their amazing personalities. Ok, nuff said.
Cookin’ Nanta is performing almost every day from Monday to Friday at 17:00 hours (first slot) and 20:00 hours (second slot). If there are holiday, there will be extra slots at 14:00 hours. Also, they have performed across worldwide since long time ago!
If you still have no clue what is this about, it is not my failure in explaining but it is your failure in processing my words.. hehe.. if you are interested and only if you are really interested, visit www.nanta.co.kr for more information.
