Chef Show is a famous wordless art show featuring a fusion of modern music and Korean culinary culture.

First started as Bibap Show, a 30-minute performance to raise awareness about Korean food in 2008, changed its name to Chef Show and underwent an upgrade in 2011. The show will see a combination of beatboxing, B-boy dancing, martial arts, and other dance performances.

The Show showcases the image of a special restaurant with talented chefs participating in a culinary competition, to find the culinary master with the best cooking secrets. Attractive dishes, vibrant beatbox rhythms and skilful dance moves from the "Chef Artists" will guide the emotions, bringing the audience from one to another surprise and overwhelming feelings in each performance.
