This performance is based on a traditional story from the Gangwon Province about brotherly love. This work features a real-time live performance as actors draw 8 different paintings on traditional Korean paper that later become the background for the scenes. Shadow puppets emerge from the painted scenery along with traditional music to stimulate the imagination of the audience while making them feel as though they are reading a lyrical picture book. The Kkumdongi Puppet Theatre has received numerous awards and has performed at various international festivals.
