JUMP comes to Daejeon

Those of you readers who happen to reside in Daejeon, South Korea and enjoy the pleasure of viewing a show here and there may be interested to know that May 4th and 5th at Chungnam National University there will be a total of three performances of the Comic Martial Arts performance known as JUMP. Most commonly viewed in Seoul, Daejeon will play host to this non-verbal, action packed, martial-arts meets-comedy performance for one weekend and one weekend only.

If you're interested in attending, you need to either have Korean fluency yourself or Korean friends who are willing to translate and help you secure some tickets. The Harrington's have some super awesome, totally amazing friends who just so happen to be entirely fluent in Korean and helped them and another couple secure tickets, therefore THT cannot provide a detailed account on how one can secure tickets on their own, but we can offer a few tips and websites.

Dates and Times of the Show are as follows:

Friday, May 4th, 2012: 8:00 pm
Saturday, May 5th, 2012: 2:00 pm and 6:00 pm
(However, super awesome friends of Mike and Melissa said for some reason the 2:00 show was unavailable...maybe it was just that day or some other fluke, but don't say we didn't warn you).

There are three seating/price options:

Cheap - 33,000
Mid-range - 55,000
Luxury - 66,000
But WAIT! There's more! Children (perhaps under 12 years) get in at 50% off ticket price AND any Korean who books tickets AND plans to bring foreigners, receives a 20% discount. So now, if you have super awesome friends who happen to speak Korean fluently you can bribe them, by taking you and helping you, they get a 20% discount (and so do you!)

Tickets are available here and supposedly on some other Korean websites of which I know nothing about.

Still not sure what you're getting into if you purchase tickets for JUMP?

Check out the official website, specifically the plot line here.

Or watch the teaser down below!

Have you seen JUMP or any other non-verbal shows in Korea such as Cookin' Nanta? If so, what do you think?
