SEOUL, May 2 (Korea Bizwire) – The Seoul Metropolitan Government announced Tuesday that it is offering 50 percent discounts to audience members wearing hanbok, Korean traditional attire, for 19 performances taking place at four of the city’s performance venues – the Sejong Center for the Performing Arts, Seoul Namsan Traditional Theater, Seoul Donhwamun Traditional Theater, and Samcheonggak. 

Offered until July 1, visitors who wish to take advantage of the discounts can select the hanbok discount option when they make a ticket reservation online, or simply show up at the ticket office on the day of the performance wearing a hanbok.

Such discounts have grown popular since historic palaces like Gyeongbokgung started offering free entrance for those wearing hanbok in 2013. There are now over one hundred restaurants in the capital offering 10 to 20 percent discounts to hanbok wearers.
