On every Culture Day of the month (last Wednesday of the month), the Busan National Gugak Center will hold an Open House which will allow the public to tour the Busan National Gugak Center, to experience gugak (Korean traditional music) and traditional costumes, as well as watch art group rehearsals. It aims to help people understand traditional art.
First, Open House visitors will tour an outdoor Korean garden and stage, theater facilities (Yeonak-dang, Yeji-dang), and stage equipment. The Busan National Gugak Center was designed by Ryu Choon-soo, a prominent Korean architect, and features a motif of the Muryangsujeon Hall of Buseoksa Temple made in the Goryeo Dynasty.
A promotion video for the Busan National Gugak Center will be screened after a tour of the theaters. Visitors can watch gugak art groups practice dance and music, try on traditional costumes and use props used in performances while having a photo taken. Participants will also have a chance to learn styles of Korean vocal music such as pansori and jeongga. Center souvenirs will be provided to participants after completing a satisfaction survey.
The Open House event will be held every last Wednesday of the month from February to December from 2 pm – 4 pm. The first 20 applicants by phone reservation can visit the Open House free of charge. For more information, please call the center at (051)811-0047.
