The musical has a simple back story of three cooks attempting to finish preparing a wedding banquet within a strict time limit while the manager installs his incompetent nephew among the kitchen staff.

The show involves acrobatics, magic tricks, comedy, pantomime and audience participation. The unifying element throughout the musical is the use of traditional Korean samul nori music, which in this case is performed with improvised instruments, such as cutting boards, water canisters and kitchen knives.

The performance is almost completely non-verbal. The very few words which are spoken are mostly in English. Even a foreigner who do not speak Korean could easily understand the content because of their skillful body-language and performance.
