Walther Chon, assistant professor of the theatre arts department at Ithaca College, explores Korean theatre in its contemporary global context. The lecture focuses on Korean plays that reflect particularly Korean theatrical forms and sentiments; Korean musicals that joined the wave of the K-pop phenomenon; the nuances of translating texts between the Korean and English languages; and the spread of the #MeToo movement in the current Korean theatre scene. It further examines how Korean theatre strives to appeal to a wider global demographic. Part of SUNY Oswego's IGE International Year of Korea series.
