The Dream Theatre, the largest musical theater in Korea, is located within a 49-story building constructed as part of the 2nd phase of the BIFC (Busan International Finance Center) development project. The theater occupies three floors, the third to the fifth, in the building, has a seating capacity of 1,727 and is equipped with all the latest theatrical equipment.
