If you love Korean shows and celebrities, you’ll love this place. Popular broadcasting network MBC has an awesome high-tech indoor theme park called MBC World at their headquarters in Sangam-dong where you can indulge in your love for Korean pop culture.
The area is divided into M, B, and C zones. In the M zone, there are fun and unique experiences like a newsroom where you can get a feel of what it’s like to be a news anchor by reading news scripts out loud in front of the camera.
B and C zones offer photo booths and experience programs related to popular celebrities. For instance, the 3D Photo Zone has scenes from variety shows and dramas that you can take photos in, making it look like you really are starring alongside them!
The holographic theater will make you feel like you really are watching a real live concert. You can even be projected onto the stage and be the lucky audience member that gets serenaded by the K-pop idols themselves! You can even learn dance moves from the stars and dance on stage alongside them.
Alternatively, you can submerse yourself in popular variety shows like “Infinite Challenge,” “Radio Star” and “Real Men” in the 360-virtual reality theater. Or perhaps you’d like to try on Korean traditional costumes from historical dramas like “Moon Embracing the Sun” at the Korean Historical Drama Center.
Since the building is an actual broadcast studio space, you may even be lucky enough to catch your favorite stars as they head to their next schedule or take a coffee break! Don’t forget to stop by the souvenir shop to stock up on goodies featuring your favorite celebrities!
You can experience everything the place has to offer with a 90-minute guided tour offered in English, Japanese or Chinese! To book the guided tour, click here.
