Direction From Myeongdong Station to Nanta Theatre

If you don't stay in Myeongdong, the most convenient way to get here is by taking Seoul Subway. Myeongdong Station is on LINE 4 of Seoul Metropolitan Subway. Upon arriving at Myeongdong station, go up to the ground level by using the EXIT 6. Then following the walking map below to get to Myeongdong Nanta Theater which is located just some 300 meters away.

Not clear? No worries. More photos to come. Just be on the look out for CHECKPOINT A and CHECKPOINT B and you won't have problem to get there.
If you are arriving via subway, just use EXIT 6 to get to the ground. If you arrive via taxi, just get the driver to drop you at EXIT 6 of Myeongdong Station. It is easy to find because Loisir Hotel is located exactly at EXIT 6 of Myeongdong Station.

EXIT 6 Myeongdong Station Loisir Hotel
Once you are at EXIT 6 of Myeongdong Station, walk into the alley at the side of Loisir Hotel. After a few steps, you will come to CHECKPOINT A junction, where Nature Republic building (in green) is located on your left and Lloyd in front of you. GO STRAIGHT at this CHECKPOINT A junction, do not turn.
CHECKPOINT A - You can see Natural Republic on your left. Go straight towards Lloyd Direction
From CHECKPOINT A, continue to walk for about 200 meters to get to CHECKPOINT B. On the way, there are many shopping "distractions" as you will pass through Forever 21, Zarra, M plaza and many fashions and cosmetic stores. That is why shopaholic may find this 200 meters street a "long" walk.
Keep walking for about 200 meters. You will walk pass Forever 21 and Zarra at M Plaza along the way
After walk the 200 meter walk, you will come to CHECK POINT B, which is a cross junction where you will see Myeongdong Theater in front of you. However, Myeongdong Theater IS NOT Nanta Theater. Myeongdong Theater is a cinema like theater and does not run the famous Nanta Cookin Show. This is where many people are confused.
CHECKPOINT B - At this cross junction, you will see Bank on your left and Myeongdong Theater (NOT Nanta Theater) in front of you. Turn LEFT at this junction
So where is Myeongdong Nanta Theater? At CHECK POINT B, you need to turn LEFT and walk for about 100 meters to reach Myeongdong Nanta Theater.
After turn left at POINT B, walk for about 100 meter to get to CHECKPOINT C where Myeongdong Nanta Theatre is located
Yes, after about 100 meters, you will reach the UNESCO Building (in the photo below). If you don't pay attention, you may not notice that the famous Myeongdong Nanta Theater is actually located here (Can you notice the tiny RED Nanta Theater sign board above Skinfood?). Perhaps Nanta Show is famous enough that they don't even need a big sign board to promote Nanta Theater.
POINT C - Nanta Theatre is on your left at the UNESCO Building, above Skin Food shop
That's is it! You have arrived at Myeongdong Nanta Theater. There is only one other theater in Seoul, which is located in Hongdae.
