■ Key Talent of Show

resenting Korean new hit show, the spectacular Martial Arts Performance JUMP. This dynamic show fuses the ancient Korean fighting arts of Tae-kwon-do with Tae-Kyun and other Asian martial arts. Throw in a dash of acrobatics, and you have one hell of an evening out.

Never lets the spectacular acrobatics obscure some fine comic acting.

Previous martial arts shows have focused mostly on the craft, with the technique itself being the show. JUMP is Non-Verbal performance that is the first show of its kind to blend martial arts performance with a compelling and hilarious narrative.

Fantasy and fighting come together as acrobatics and martial arts combine in a dazzling and jaw dropping performance usually seen just on movie screens.

■ Story of JUMP

….. Meet one very unusual family!
Set in an average Korean home, JUMP is centered around a typical, but dramatically agile, Korean family – from the authoritarian grandfather, drunken uncle and Tae Kwon Do-chopping mother to the awkward girlfriend’s suitor.

Each member is a martial arts expert, possessing championship level Tae Kwon Do, Tae Kyun and gymnastic skills. They enjoy nothing more than challenging each other to martial arts showdowns, displaying their awe-inspiring expertise.

The plot thickens when two burglars break into the family home in the middle of the night – one a sleek, mean villain, the other a plump, bumbling idiot – complete with rather scary hair! When the family discovers the intruders, a mighty battle ensues. What follows is an incredible display of acrobatic and martial arts skills, with a healthy dose of slapstick humour…

 Character of JUMP

Grandfather – He is a master of all the ancient fighting arts; Tae-Kwon-Do, Tae-kyun, Karate and Hapkido. His movement is as polished as his dentures.

Father – There’s no matching rival with him except the grandfather. It is said that he has the fastest feet in the East, especially if his wife is feeling a bit frisky.

Mother – She says she has never met her match in battle.  She has never met her match in beauty. To be honest, she has never met anyone who matches her opinions.

Uncle – His hands can break boards. His legs can smash bones. His feet can crush stones. And after a night on the bottle, his breath can do the same. His personality amazes everybody; his drunken acrobatic and acting skill astound you.


Daughter – She transforms Martial Arts into a beautiful Dance. She is as beautiful as she is
dangerous. Eyes like an angel, the body of goddess. But once she gets mad, no one can stop

Son-in-law – An intellectual, and a guy with great knowledge in the arts, but he has two personalities: One of a trembling coward, and the other of a Sexy Hulk.  He constantly flips from one to the other. You’ll be amazed at his acting and fighting skills.

Burglar I and II  –…………well, what can you say? …  Clumsy! Wrong house!  Wrong time! Wrong job!!!!

Old Man – The mysterious stage manager… the show is impossible without him.

■ History of JUMP

With three years of extensive training in acting and mime and more than 2,000 performances under their belts, the champion gymnasts and martial artists in the show have honed their skills to perfection.

The concept for the show was first conceived in October 1999. The sixth scenario of the show CRAZY FAMILY was written in March 2001. Eight months later, the team started their acrobatics training under the guidance of Oak Soo Chung, the Women’s National Gymnastics team coach. In August 2002, the non-verbal performance of CRAZY FAMILY was previewed and the team was invited to perform at the Kyushu Festival in Japan. That same year, they premiered at the National Theater of Seoul. In April 2003, the show was renamed JUMP and performed to various theatres in Korea. Now the show in running on at the ‘Jump Theatre’ built in Seoul in September 2006.

From 2005 onwards, the show has toured internationally to festivals and venues, starting at the Israel Festival and Edinburgh Festival Fringe, and touring to various countries including England, China, Greece, Spain, Japan, India, Hong Kong, Macao and Laos. A long-term overseas tour is being planned in Japan and America in 2007. JUMP won the ‘Comedy Award’ at Edinburgh Fringe Festival 2006, ‘Grand Prize for Drama & Musical’ by the Korean National Assembly and featured in ‘The Royal Variety Performance’ shown on BBC TV in December 2006.
