Despite the show placing a heavy emphasis on the educational value rather than the emotional one, the show is a remarkable and unique play about the Korean king who created the Korean language. It is also extremely relevant to the current political situations in the U.S. now but you will have to see the show to discover that for yourself :)... full review

I was blown away by this performance. It's very hit-and-miss with some Fringe shows, especially when a particular subject matter isn't widely known...but I was so excited to have seen this show. I can't recommend it enough - the costuming was incredible, the message was surprisingly poignant to the modern day, and I learned something! Win win win!... full review
