Four witches have banded together to throw a riotous party of talk and song. The racket, entitled <Chatterbox Concert> (planned by Women Culture and Arts), features four women - Oh Sook Hee, Ahn Hye Kyong, Oh Eun Sook and Chi Hyun - who will be exploring the problems faced by women through chatter, songs and dances.

In a world where the mass media is still filled with obsolete and superficial portrayals of women's issues, the four women intend to make the concert a medium to raise women's awareness of what it is like to live as a woman in Korea and become an active participant in society. Without resolving such issues, the four women will forever remain witches.

The leading chatterbox is Oh Sook Hee, author of <Let's Talk It Out> and someone who has realized early on the 'therapeutic power' of chatting. Actress Oh Eun Sook will unleash her dancing, singing and acting talents, while singers Ahn Hye Kyong and Chi Hyun will treat the audience to their powerful and exuberant music.

The actress and two singers singing <An Old Future> and <Chilli Pepper Fields> open the variety show, which includes mono-dramas <The Female Anatomy> and <Vagina Monologue>, songs <I Need Work> and <That Woman Dongkyu>, and a musical entitled <Rice Cooker? Cool Rapper!>

The laughing witches will put on stage themes such as the woman's body, her work, the sexual violence and social prejudice she faces, her participation in society and culture and so on. The concert is expected to awaken those who have been unaware of such themes, while giving those already aware a sense of exhilaration and liberation rarely found in other popular concerts.

In celebration of Women's Week, the first show will be staged on 4 July in the Women Center in Bucheon, Gyeonggi-do. This will be followed by another show in Ansan on 20 July. And then until November, the four witches will go wherever women groups, universities, trade unions or community centers beckon to throw their smash parties.
