    For a lighter performance offering some comic relief, young students may want to try out the “Farting Lady” on show at the Seoul Namsan Traditional Theater until Feb. 27. This performance features a mix of traditional Korean dance and games, as well as mime, puppet shows, and other theatrical effects.

    For an historical adventure, parents and children can try out “the story of Sejong and Admiral Yi Sunshin, History, Culture Expedition” available at Gwanghwamun from Tuesday to Sunday from 10 a.m. to 10 p.m.

    The Cheonggyecheon Museum is holding a special exhibition entitled ‘The Moment of Living Heritage,” featuring 53 photographic works that are esteemed for their artistic appeal and contribution to the country’s traditional cultural arena. The exhibited items are recognized as intangible cultural assets.
