Jump

On Saturday the 9th Jang-Ki, Ji-Hyun, Les, Maureen and ourselves went to a non-verbal comic martial arts performance appropriately titled 'Jump'. The best way to describe it is like Jackie Chan meets Chaplin. The story revolves around a not-so-typical Korean family who are martial arts experts, but when two unsuspecting robbers enter the house, accompanied by their own burglar theme music, they soon find out what awaits them on the inside.

Les was pulled onto the stage to perform for the audience and engage in one-on-one combat with one of the actors. To ensure that Les was not packing, they first frisked him to confirm there were no concealed weapons on him. To our amazement, the cast managed to uncover an axe, chains, daggers and a sword all concealed somewhere on Les' person. As you can see from the picture, this superior Korean family was slightly intimidated by our eminently dangerous Canadian friend. Much to Les' relief they awarded him victorious without a fight.
We all agreed that this was one of the most brilliant comedies that we have ever seen. 'Jump' has been and will be touring the globe and if you or your family ever get the chance to see this productions we greatly recommend going. We highly, highly endorse this genius slapstick Korean accomplishment.

I wonder if it was as good as that Jackie Chan movie "Beautiful".

P.S. Trev, you still owe us 2 hours of our life back for that one!
