Every year, Korea is promoting ‘Visit Korea Year’ and Chinese travellers are constantly increasing. Shopping has been main tour contents for the tourists, but performance industry is changing the trends in tourist market gradually. The Painters: HERO is approaching audience with brand new concept and brilliant idea, without focusing on traditionality of Korean performance. It has been praised as one of a kind performance by international audiences.
In April, The Painters: HERO tickets were all sold out by Chinese tourists, celebrating China’s labor day holiday. Recently Chinese corporation ‘Joy Main Group’ has visited Korea as incentive holiday for employees and all of 8,000 people enjoyed The Painters: HERO throughout 2 weeks. This was record-making number as a performance in Korea MICE history. The Painters: HERO’s two main theatres(out of three theatres in Seoul) were full with Joy Main employees, having exclusive 18 shows. It was great opportunity satisfying incentive group’s needs in cultural experience.
