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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
That's is it! You have arrived at Myeongdong Nanta Theater. There is only one other theater in Seoul, which is located in Hongdae.
Once you get to the ground through EXIT 6, continue to walk ahead straight for about 200 meters until you see the famous Lotte Young Department Store on your right (across the road).
At this point, TURN LEFT into the side street and continue to walk for about 100 meters before you arrive at Myeongdong Nanta Theater which is located at the UNESCO Building on your right, above Skinfood shop.
