Kids laugh along as the actors on stage perform amusing acts.
Hakchon Theater, is a venue that has long been focusing on children's musicals and plays since it opened 16 years ago.
This one is an adaptation of the German play, 'Max und Milli', and boasts of the highest number of spectators among all of Hakchon's childrens' musical series.
"This children's musical… titled 'We are Friends', is a performance which has been a steady-seller at theaters every summer since it premiered in 2004."
Two siblings meet a new friend who's scared of his strict father.
At first they have hard time becoming friends, but after helping each other avoid getting into trouble with their parents, they forge a strong friendship.
The musical not only shows how three kids become good friends but also allows adults to reflect on how they treat their own children.
Instruments including guitar, double bass and xylophone are played all throughout the show, allowing for engaging experience.
People, including the actors themselves, say the musical is a great opportunity for kids to enjoy the show while forgetting about COVID-19.
"We recently had our first performance this year, and I felt very happy when the kids laughed during the show. I believe children's laughter gives energy and I hope they can forget about any frustrations they may have felt due to COVID-19 and enjoy the show with their loved ones."
"My daughter loves this musical so muchthis is the third time we have come to see it. It is hard to find good performances for elementary school students but the Hakchon actors are very good and the musicals have lots of elements kids like."
The musical 'We are Friends' will run until August 30th, then another children's musical series called 'Like a Superman' will kick off afterwards.
