Gogung Concerts, also known as the Royal Palace Concerts, are a series of traditional Korean musical performances happening inside the confinements of two of the main Palaces of Seoul, Gyeongbokgung and Changgyeonggung.
At Gyeongbokgung, the series of concerts will take place once during the day (3.30pm – 4.10pm) at Jagyeongjeon’s Flower Wall (residence of the Queen Mother) and once at night (8.00pm – 8.50pm) at Sujeongjeon Hall (former royal research institute in the 15th century).
At Changgyeonggung Palace, evening concerts will be hosted at Tongmyeongjeon Hall (the King’s bedroom). The palatial mise en scene will be fantastically lit up, adding a dramatic effect you won’t be able to experience anywhere else in the world. These shows will be a treat for your eyes and ears for sure.
