[The Chosun Ilbo, January 21 2008] Chongdong Theater Celebrates Centennial of Wongaksa

Chongdong Theater in downtown Seoul is welcoming guests to celebrate the 100th year of Wongaksa. Wongaksa, Korea's first Western-style theater, was built in 1908 but perished in a fire only six years later.

Chongdong Theater was built to pass on the legacy of Wongaksa and is now celebrating the centennial of its mother theater's birth.

"To celebrate the 100th birthday we've prepared the Masters' Concert in January, and other shows in June and October. Currently, we're showing traditional singing, dance and instrumental concerts over this three-week event," a theater source said.
