Cheol-Gabang Comedy Theater

The first exclusive comedy theater


The largest tin food carrier (cheol-gabang in Korean) in the world lies at the lakeside of Seonggok Dam at Seonggok-ri, Punggak-myeon. Jajangmyeon (noodle) is spilling out of the food carrier, and chopsticks, sauce containers and a soju (liquor) bottle are scattered around. The soju bottle is 5.2m high.
This is an exclusive comedy theater, where interesting and pleasant comedies are performed throughout the year. The model tin food carrier bears the caption: "Comedies are delivered like jajangmyeon." This may seem to 
have no sense, but it carries quite a deep meaning. 
When the 3m-high background of the stage opens, the landscape of Seonggok Dam comes into the audience seats. The rain falls on the stage, and splashes into the audience. Hidden stage props come out abruptly here and there. This theater is the first of its kind in Korea: a 4-D exclusive theater with a real natural backdrop. The admission fee is the same as the price of jajangmyeon for one person. The theater also bears the name 'Laughter Health Center'.
