지하 Underground Queer Performance at the Hi Seoul Festival

TKQ and his boyfriend had a beautiful date tonight. We went to the Hi Seoul Festival and saw some pretty fantastic performances and also noticed a queer performance that will take place Saturday and Sunday night.

Here's Hi Seoul Festival's blurb:

Lecture Performance: Gender Bender Fencers by siren eun young jung

Tomorrow, Friday, September 12th, siren eun young jung will be presenting a lecture performance titled Gender Bender Fencers which looks at female Gukgeuk performers (remember Girl Princes?) and how they were successful in their fighting scenes.

Queer Links from the Week

Last Minute Event: Rocky Horror Picture Show Screening

Tomorrow, Sunday December 16th, NORI Film Bar in Seoul will host a screening of Rocky Horror Picture Show at 8 pm. The information is all available on their Facebook page.

Sure, it is almost Christmas and Rocky Horror isn't the most Christmasy movie in the world, but this sounds like a good date night... And in case you are wondering, TKQ is seeing a really cute Korean guy at the moment.

Rocky Horror in Seoul

The Seoul Players are putting on a production of The Rocky Horror Picture Show. Those that want to perform along with the screening of the film should check out their Facebook Page. The auditions are on the 1st and 2nd of September at Moonnight in Itaewon. The show will be on Halloween, but if you can't wait to see some sweet transvestites, check out this pretty great rendition by the Korean cast.

The Bard in Busan

I know it's the English Major in me, but I love Shakespeare.  Murder, insults, wordplay, cross-dressing, and penis jokes - what's not to love?  Even though I loved Shakespeare in High School- it made me feel super smart.  Having a great professor for my Shakespeare class really did help.  And even last year when a friend at my old job let me borrow her 'Shakespearean insult mug,' I was down right giddy. I mean, who doesn't want to learn lovely old phrases like 'canker blossom'. 

So needless to say I was really excited to go see some of my fellow foreigners, and one cool friend act out a great play, in a lovely location, on a nice summer's day- for free. 

The play is being performed this coming weekend too (the 9th and 10th at 3pm) and I highly recommend seeing it.

Performance: Little Shop of Horrors (Camarata Music Company)

The ‘Little Shop of Horrors’ has aged nicely, considering it was copyrighted the same year I was born. The story is straightforward enough: geeky Seymour, an orphan taken in by Mr. Mushnik (left), and his ‘not-so-secret’ crush Audrey, both work at Mr. Mushnik ‘skid row’ flower shop. I was too busy taking photos to note how accurate the Korean subtitles were, but the Korean audience seemed to laugh in all the right places. His face isn’t visible in this picture, but the wino (center, on ground) is the only Korean actor in the production.
