London Korean Links has just reported that the hilarious Korean theatre show JUMP will be returning to London Peacock Theatre. We have spoken fondly of them in the past and have awaited their return for years and now they are finally back!
Jump is the gravity-defying, internationally acclaimed show that combines comedy, martial arts and jaw-dropping acrobatics. Jump tells the story of a pair of hapless burglars, who get more than they bargained for when they break into the home of a very unusual family, complete with karate-chopping mother and Tae-kwon-do expert grandfather.

Jump is brilliantly entertaining and suitable for all the family, young, old or too-cool-to-care hipster teens. Everyone is guaranteed to have a fun night. We have seen Jump a number of times and they always manage to make us laugh a little louder. The Jump cast is amazingly expressive and geniuses at slapstick body comedy. There is also very little dialogue meaning just about anyone will be able to enjoy the show.
One of Korea’s biggest-selling shows, Jump now has its very own permanent theatre in Seoul and has toured throughout Europe, Asia and America, having been seen by over 3.5 million of people worldwide in 60 cities of 27 countries. This madcap action-packed display of Tae-kwon-do, jaw-dropping flips, dazzling acrobatics and swashbuckling sword fights is a show like no other.
Jump is a brilliant example of Korea’s quirky humour mixed with amazing LIVE stunts on stage. So don’t miss out! We’ve been waiting years for this show to return to London Theatres, who knows how long we’ll have to wait for them to come again!
