Since 2012, the Korea Tourism Organization launches every September a campaign called Korea In Motion, KOINMO in short, to promote non-verbal performances, musicals, plays and concerts in Korea.
For three years now, these non-verbal performance and musicals in Seoul have been spotlighted by the KOINMO campaign, increasing the attendance to these shows by providing discounted tickets and attractive packages to locals and international tourists during the KOINMO period. This lets everyone enjoy these performances included in the campaign at a more affordable price.
In 2014, KOINMO period starts on September 3 and ends on October 5. On these dates, you can either visit the KOINMO booths at six (6) locations around Seoul, including Myeong-dong and the Korea Tourism Organization headquarters near the Cheonggye Stream.
Also, a caricature artist can sketch you and your friend for free if you buy your tickets from the KOINMO booth. The artist is available at a specific KOINMO booth on selected dates though.
And if you're around Myeong-dong these days, the KOINMO Showcase features numbers from selected shows performed by the actual actors and performers on an open-air stage right in the middle of Seoul's shopping centrale. These showcases are performed at 11AM and 1PM.
(The KOINMO team at the T2 booth at
KTO will help you get your tickets!)

Although I already have my free performance tickets courtesy of the Korea Tourism Organization, I hope to see you at the performance venues just the same.
And perhaps at KOINMO's opening ceremonies, too?
