Why not offer parents concert tickets as `the parents day-gift`?

`Hyo- Song of Remorse 2002` and `Sung Chun-Hyang`, which are to continue until the 12th, are perfect performances for the parents day. `…Song of Remorse 2002` is a Korean folk musical that has combined Chosun Dynasty’s Buddhist music `Song of Remorse` and folk fiction `Shim-Chung Jeon`. Folk singer Kim Young-Im, comedian Lee Sang-Hae couple, folk musicians, and musical performers are to appear on the stage. `…Song of Remorse 2002` has added more excitement by harmonizing folk music and western music, such as Kayakeum and Cello, Percussion and Drum, Daekeum and Flute. Weekdays 4 p.m. 7:30 p.m. Saturday 6 p.m. Sunday 3 p.m. 6 p.m. 20,000 – 100,000 won. 02-6001-2345, 1588-7800

`Sung Chun-Hyang`, which is currently showing at National Haeoreum Theater, is a 4 and a half hour-long traditional Korean opera. This performance is a special event for celebrating the 100th anniversary of `Chun-Hyan Jeon` introduced by the first national theater, Hyeopryul-sa (later named Wonkak-sa). Famous singers Ahn Suk-Sun and Lee Myun-Hee are to perform the `Chun-Hyan Song`. Besides, producer Kim Ah-Ra, who interpreted western classical works such as `Human Lear` and `Hamlet 1999`, participated in the production to add perfection.
