While in Chuncheon (춘천) we popped into the Chuncheon Puppet Theatre (춘천인형국장) to see the wonderful Men of Steel perform their show "Cookie Cutter and Friends". While there we got a chance to visit the Chuncheon Puppet Museum (right next door to the theatre) and see some of the amazing puppets exhibited there...
Small Hanbok clad hand puppet.
Cute little German fellow.
Sadari Theatre Company puppet based on drawings by famous artist 이중섭 (Lee Jung-sop).
Standing up for the puppets of Britain a rather dapper Mr. Punch made by Professor Bryan Clarke.
Beautiful three panel rendition of the story of Shim-cheong.
And a giant puppet guarding the entrance to the theatre toilets.
