White Lies Burlesque
Asia, in general, likes to keep the sexy behind closed doors. That is why the White Lies Burlesque Review have an important role in Seoul's eclectic nightlife. These cats intend to bring the boudoir under the bright lights. While the group has had its share of controversy, the overall impression from both the foreign and Korean population of Seoul has been overwhelmingly positive.
Burlesque in its purest form is sensual storytelling made popular in years long past. But don't think that a trip out to see this crew with be full of sorid men and 1920's jazz music. The performers of this troupe (male and female) bring a new twist to the old burlesque tale, enchanting mixed crowds with pasties and poi (fire spinning), strip and swing.
Each one of the rotating members brings their own talents and personality to the stage. This is not surprising seeing that individual members of the group greatly contribute to the artistic and intellectual capital of Seoul's foreign community when they aren't on stage.
If you are looking for a interesting date night or simply for something different, check out White Lies at one of their frequent performances in Seoul (or internationally). Be prepared to be out late and pay the babysitter overtime.
