Overall Evaluation of Cookin’ NANTA Show

Overall, this show is full of excitement and humor and I highly recommend to those who have never seen a Korean performance show before! The show is very interactive, too.

From time to time during the show, the audience had an opportunity to engage in the performance.¬†Not only it seemed¬†fun for them¬†to actually participate and perform (it would be an unforgettable experience), but it was fun for the other audience to watch them as well.¬†nanta-showPlus, there’s a surprise event in the end so look forward to it as well! And because I couldn’t take a photo of the actual show, you must come and see for yourself how vibrant and entertaining NANTA show is! So, hurry up and grab your tickets now as the seats tend to run out quickly since the show is very popular. The ticket is available here.
