I took the opportunity to do a little sightseeing when I was in Daegu to catch Musical PHANTOM.
Not knowing where to go, I did one of the recommended tour courses and ended up at the Kim Gwang-seok Street (or 김광석 다시 그리기 길). It turned out to be the highlight of my trip, apart from catching Park Hyo Shin’s performance.

If there’s no opportunity to catch Park Hyo Shin in concert, the next best thing would probably be to attend his musical. Even then, there’s no guarantee of getting tickets on days when he’s in the cast.
I had wanted to catch Musical PHANTOM in Seoul, but the tickets for days when Park Hyo Shin was performing were sold out. Turned out, the musical later toured other cities and I went for the Daegu stop.
