“MISO : Baebijang-jeon”, the No. 1 Korean traditional culture stage show is finally here in Malaysia!
Loved by people from all over the world, Jeongdong Theater presents its new performance of 2014, “MISO:Baebijang-jeon”. The show doesn’t just present traditional dance and music in a one-dimensional dance drama; it goes on to heighten the beauty of form as a holistic performance by harmonising rhythm, melody, theatrical devices, and dancing steps based on Korean traditional movements. It also increases the completion level of the dramatic story that penetrates the entire performance.
A satirical novel representative of the Joseon era, the classical novel is written by an unknown author in the late Joseon Dynasty in which humor stands out vividly as it evokes laughter by alluding to the hypocrisy of the ruling class and natural human desires.
The plot is described as:
Bae Geol-deok-swe, who always tries to maintain the honor of the gentry, is appointed the government position of the secretary in charge of culture and art. He goes to his new post in Jeju Island with the new district magistrate. In Jeju Island, Secretary Bae doesn’t mingle with the people at the welcoming party of the new magistrate. Instead, he goes around scolding the other secretaries for socializing with gisaengs (courtesans). The magistrate wants to test Secretary Bae who vows never to be seduced by any kind of temptation, so the magistrate declares that he’ll handsomely reward anyone who can seduce Secretary Bae. Ae-rang, one of Jeju Island’s most beautiful women, comes forward, saying she’ll seduce him. The man servant that works for Secretary Bae agrees to help her. Secretary Bae, who would talk big about the honor of the gentry, sees Ae-rang taking a bath at the waterfall, and immediately falls in love with her. With the help of his man servant, Secretary Bae heads over to Ae-rang’s house.
This novel was recreated and performed as a Korean traditional opera, a musical, etc., becoming a performance content that has already verified its box-office worth and entertainment value to the domestic audience.
Jeongdong Theater highly anticipates that “MISO : Baebijang-jeon” will have both artistic value and popular appeal. It will be a Korean traditional performance production that is acknowledged by the world, and will be loved by foreign visitors as well as more Korean audiences.
